The Gwynedd region
Nowhere else in Britain will you find so many things to do and see as you will in Snowdonia. There are beaches, steam railways, forests, lakes, valleys, and castles. You will be spoilt for choice so come armed with a "bucket list" and be prepared to want to return.
Around and about in Snowdonia there are standing stones and stone circles, burial chambers and hill forts where the ancient Britons and the Romans left their mark.
Tre'r Ceiri is one of Snowdonia's best-known ancient sites, an Iron Age hill fort on Yr Eifl Mountain on the Llyn Peninsula where the remains of over 150 stone houses are still visible.
Bryn Cader Faner, not far from Harlech, is one of the easiest to recognise ancient monuments in Wales. This Bronze Age cairn is a circle of thin jagged pillars jutting out from the low cairn.
There are plenty of places to visit within the immediate area. Many outstanding scenic walks start from the doorstep and the beach is a 15 minute stroll. The cottage is a few minutes walk from the Ysgethin Inn which is on the river, Tony's Italian Restaurant. As Talybont is between Barmouth and Harlech it is also a gateway to many other amazing places.
Things to do within easy driving distance
Barmouth - William Wordsworth who visited in the nineteenth century said “With a fine sea view in front, the mountains behind, the glorious estuary running eight miles inland and Cadair Idris within compass of a day's walk, Barmouth can always hold its own against any rival.”
Harlech close by is a must see, not only for the outstanding views over the dunes but also for its medieval castle which stands on a cliff and is also a World Heritage Site and the home of the Royal St David's golf club for any golfing enthusiasts . Harlech's beach and shoreline are without a doubt one of the main attractions stretching from Glaslyn estuary in the North to Llandanwg in the South with miles and miles of unspoilt beach.
Portmeirion is a unique village designed and built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925 and 1975. It has served as the location for films and television including the 1960s television series The Prisoner.
Porthmadog came into existence in 1811 after William Maddocks built a sea wall, the Cob, to reclaim a large proportion of Traeth Mawr from the sea for agricultural use. In 1170 the legendary Prince Madoc is said to have sailed from Borth-y-Gest near Porthmadog on his way to discover America. Another claim to fame?
The Llyn peninsula, Anglesey, Bala Lake, Snowdon, Betws-y-Coed and Beddgelert are all within comfortable driving distance for those wishing to explore further afield.
Beddgelert This picturesque village not only boasts the Sygun copper mine and Gelert's grave but also, Dinas Emrys, an important site in this land of myth and legend. It was here in a lake that the red and white dragons, prophesied by Merlin, fought; the name Dinas Emrys reflects Merlin's influence, his Welsh name was Myrddin Emrys. Merlin prophesied that the red dragon of the Britons would slay the white dragon of Vortigern's Saxons.
Betws-y-Coed -another picturesque village full of character and lovely little shops.
Shell Island – I believe 200 shell varieties can be found on the island the best seen after the spring tides, you need to get there early.
Ffestiniog Railway - The railway is about 13.5 miles long and runs from the harbour at Porthmadog to the Slate mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, travelling through some spectacular scenery.
Electric Mountain Llanberis - Hydro Electric power in Europe's largest man made cavern.
Bala Lake - This is the largest natural lake in Wales and is home to a white fish called the Gwyniad - Its ancestors were trapped in the waters of the lake at the end of the last Ice Age. It is now the home of lots of water sports including white water rafting. I wonder what the Gwyniad think of that?
The options for the energetic are endless and include
Walking - Some walks start from the cottage itself and some have been featured recently on the television.
Cycling - Bikes can be hired in Barmouth or Coed-y-brenin if you don't want to bring your own. The single-track mountain biking at Coed-y-Brenin has been selected as one of the world's greatest adventures in the latest Lonely Planet Great Adventures book
Golfing - Established in 1894, Royal St David's Golf Club is the home of one of the finest traditional links courses in the world and it is just 4 miles from the cottage.
Swimming - The beach is less than a mile away.
Climbing - Snowdon, Cadair Idris and surrounds for the ambitious, and an excellent climbing wall in Harlech if you want to practise first.
And for the less adventurous…….
Bird watching - the Snowdonia area is one of the few breeding sites for Osprey, and the rare Ring Ouzel has been sighted around Cadair Idris so bring your binoculars
Scenic Railways - Many people visit for the easy access to the scenic railways. One runs along the coast from Aberdovey to Pwhelli and the station is a few hundred yards from the cottage. Steam trains travel right through Snowdonia, one recent addition being the Highland railway.
For relaxation there are some really nice traditional pubs and one or two are dog friendly.
There are some surprisingly good restaurants so you will never be short of somewhere nice to be spoilt.

"Four days in heaven"
My partner and I stayed in this lovely cottage for four nights mid August and already can't wait to go back again. The owner Linda was extremely helpful and kind from before we even checked in by advising us of what to/not to bring and met us on arrival with an extremely warm welcome which was much appreciated after a long drive. Both of us cannot recommend this cottage enough. The location is amazing; close enough to the beach and nearby seaside town of Barmouth (easy 10mins by train) but far enough away from the hustle and bustle to feel like a really relaxing break. There are plenty of scenic walks to do in the area with breathtaking views of the hills on one side and the sea behind you the higher you go, but also make sure you give yourself time to enjoy time at the cottage by lighting the BBQ and even the cosy nights in with DVDs and board games to keep you entertained. The cottage itself was spotless and we thoroughly enjoyed being able to sit and watch the wildlife from the comfort of the conservatory whilst eating our breakfast each morning. The icing on the cake has to be the hot tub. Sipping wine from plastic champagne flutes (provided) and watching up at the stars whilst sat in the hot tub made the countryside holiday really feel like luxury. We can both honestly say that the only downside to this whole holiday was not staying for longer and having to leave. We will definitely be booking for 2 weeks next time. Huge thanks to Linda for providing this great experience. We look forward to seeing you again.
Thank you so lovely to hear that the whole experience fitted the bill and that you hope to come back. There are so many super walks in the area, that and the stunning scenery makes for a lot converts thankfully. Linda :-)

"" Blissful days""
Booked as a celebration of our twelfth wedding anniversary. This cottage is a great place to escape from reality. Peaceful and enjoyable locality whatever the weather. Though in constant rain the hot tub has been very relaxing for body and the soul. We secretly hope to visit this cosy cottage again. Thank you Linda for the wellingtons.
You are kind, if I remember the wellingtons sprung a leak, buts what"s a little water we were all born with waterproof skin and it keeps the stunning scenery green I keep reminding myself. I am sure you will be back as discussed so much locally still to visit, Linda :-)

Just spent three nights at Llwynn Ynn cottage and enjoyed every minute. The cottage has everything you need and the hot tub is the cherry on the top. A ten minute stroll away and you are on the beach, we walked on the beautiful beach to Barmouth a small harbour, we got the train back to Talybont and called in at the campsite bar/restaurant called Nineteen fiftyseven this bar/restaurant isn't your typical campsite bar , it ihas five star quality. I would recommend anybody to this lovely cottage and there are plenty of things to do in the area if you wish, if not just chill and relax in the cottage it's great. Special thanks to Linda for making our stay wonderful.
Oh thank you! its is so lovely when guests are so appreciative, hope to see you both back here soon. Linda :-)

"Hot Tub Heaven"
I booked this for my partner's 50th and we had a very peaceful romantic few days. The cottage has everything you need and the garden was beautiful. Was lovely to sit in the hot tub watching the birds and squirrels at play. Linda discreetly makes sure you are well looked after. I hope I can go back!
My squirrels and I would love to welcome you back Linda :-)

"Delightful cottage and a bit of paradise"
We had a warm welcome from Linda & some welcome gifts were left, a bottle of wine chilling, pint of milk, welsh cakes & jam. In the bedroom were white bathrobes & slippers & even chocolates left on our pillows. We arrived late in the afternoon so Linda made us her famous chicken tagine. The flavours were amazing & I even asked her for the recipe. Just what we needed after our 3 1/2 hours drive. The cottage was in the perfect location. Straight from the gate into the woods which our 2 dogs enjoyed immensely, beach was a 20 mins walk away. The Italian restaurant/takeaway "Tony's" was a 5 min walk and was excellent. The cottage was everything you could imagine from the pictures and the garden was stunning and well maintained. There was a 2 seater and an armchair which were both reclining. The chairs in the conservatory was most comfortable & we spent a fair time in there looking out into the garden. The hot tub was the icing on the cake for us, as we have had 5 dog holidays now & this property gave us all that we wanted & more. The wildlife in the garden which our dogs loved chasing the squirrels & we even seen a woodpecker. Thank you Linda.
Your comments are much appreciated and make me feel that the little extras are all worthwhile, and having just been for a two hour walk with amazing unspoilt views and hardly a soul around I can understand the paradise comment and really feel so lucky living here. Linda :-)

"Wonderful honeymoon in a cute little cottage!"
After getting married a couple of days before we were ready to spend some time relaxing and that was certainly what we did! It was out of season so everywhere was very quiet & peaceful. We were the only ones on the beach! The cottage is just lovely, so quaint! It has everything that you need and the hot tub is fab! Linda who lives next door could not do enough to help. Thoroughly enjoyed it! We will go again in the summer season when there will be more places open :)
Really pleased that the cottage lived up to your expectations, quite a few people come here for honeymoons and mini moons as a relaxing break after all the frantic wedding build up can be just what the doctor ordered! I do hope to see you back so you can experience more of the area very soon :) Linda

"A hidden treasure! Magical and romantic."
A beautiful cottage in a private location hidden from view. Hot tub is amazing especially at night time whilst gazing at the stars. Cottage itself is cosy and romantic. Surrounding area is gorgeous some of the best views around. Not far from Harlech beach which not many people know about. Clean sands and extremely picturesque. Linda is a fabulous host and couldn't be more helpful. Stay here and I guarantee you will want to return. Some of the best drives I've ever been on across mountains etc. Your time here will certainly be fun and memorable. It truly is a hidden gem. Also won trip advisor 2014 and I imagine quite easily too. Fun and beauty awaits you here!
Thank you for your lovely comments, as you say the beauty of my little cottage is that it does have that hidden away feel and yet it is so near to all the places and outstanding scenary we have in this part of the world, I hope you will be back as there is so much more to do and see and at the end of a days sightseeing everyones favourite the hot tub!! Linda :)

"Absolutely perfect romanitc little hide away...."
We stayed at Llwyn Ynn Cottage earlier this month for our fist wedding anniversary. Having to take our 2 dogs with us we had struggled to find a holiday let which also provided the luxury & romance we were looking for, but this cottage had it all; log burner, 4 poster bed and most importantly our very own private hot tub! Having seen the photos on here, it was a welcome surprise that on arrival the cottage and its facilities are even more beautiful than they appear in the photographs. We were lucky with the weather and spent most of our time relaxing in the sunshine in the beautifully landscaped garden with a barbecue or sipping champagne in the hot tub. The cottage was simply perfect for the rest and relaxation we were looking for. The surrounding area and coast line was also amazing, definitely somewhere we will look to go back and explore at a later date. Could not recommend Llwyn Ynn Cottage high enough to anyone looking to escape the 'rat race' and just relax!!
So pleased that my cottage exceeded your expectations, having tried many times to capture the essence of the place on my camera I know I never seem to do it justice, and when you get the weather as you did that really is the icing on the cake! Linda :-)

This was our 3rd visit to this romantic little retreat. Its the perfect get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. Immediately you enter the door you feel chilled and relaxed, especially as there is a complimentary bottle of wine waiting in the fridge for you and chocs to help you really feel at home. Maybe you would prefer a welcoming cup of tea and a nibble from the welcome hamper. The cottage lacks none of your home comforts and may even have a few more than you actually have. (We don't have a dishwsher, four poster king size bed, log burner or a hot tub) The hot tub is most welcome to relax your happy weary bones after hiking along the many scenic walks locally or generally exploring the many pretty liitle Welsh seaside towns. The local beaches are breath taking with Harlech been the best for a long bracing winter walks or sunbathing in the summer. We have done both and highly reccommend them both as much. Our dog Ralph loves Llynn Ynn cottage and is beginning to think of it as his 2nd home. He loves to explore the wonderful garden and watch with interest the many birds and squirrels. To sit in the cottage conservatory in the morning and eat my breakfast and watch the birds is one of the best bits of the holiday, closely followed by sipping champagne in the hot tub on a starlit night and chat to my husband about the day, before drying off, wrapped in the Llynn Ynn gowns by the roaring log burner fire making sure were completely sleepy and the giant four poster bed calls us to our dreams. None of this would be possible without the thoughtfulness of owner Linda, the perfect host. Nothing is too much trouble for her and she endevours to make your holiday as perfect as possible, she can reccommend places of interest and good places to eat and drink with a smile and a friendly chat. Linda is also a great cook and will provide you with her Moroccan chicken meal (for a small cost) delivered to the cottage door if pre ordered.
Thank you! for your lovely comments, I am so lucky to be in a part of Wales that has everything and brings you back time and time again to enjoy all it has to offer. I have just taken your fourth booking and hope the magic will always keep you loyal to the area and to Llwyn Ynn of course. Linda
