Location description from owner

The North Wales 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.

“Just perfect, stunning cottage and garden and lovely host”

Reviewed 17 Oct 2016

This stunning cottage & garden was the most perfect getaway, I only wish we could have stayed for longer. Linda was the perfect host with lots of local knowledge and recommendations. The wine and extras were such a lovely touch. The hot tub was amazing!! The scenery and coastline is just stunning. The local bars we tried were great and Tony's pizza is a definite must. All in all it was the perfect break and we are looking forward to coming back Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. Hope to see you soon. Helen and Andy :-)

A beautiful cottage and surrounding countryside & coast. Linda is a lovely lady, welcoming & helpful. A lovely place for a romantic break.

“Amazing stay!!!”

Reviewed 30 Aug 2016

My girlfriend and I had booked white water rafting on the River Tryweryn and were looking for somewhere to stay in the area, we stumbled upon this cottage online and what a find it was! The pictures on the website (as lovely as they are) do not do it justice, the cottage, garden and surrounding areas are even prettier in reality. Linda is a lovely host. Upon arriving we were given a tour of the cottage and presented with a welcome pack (wine, cheese etc) which was a really nice touch, along with local knowledge of places to eat and visit. As secluded as the cottage is, it's only a short car journey into Barmouth town and as mentioned the white water rafting which we'd definitely recommend. The Ysgethin River runs right at the back of the cottage and provides a great walk, along with a flowing soothing sound when you're in the hot tub in the evening enjoying a relaxing drink. 3 nights just didn't seem long enough, there's so many more activities/places that we would love to experience, a return is definitely on the cards.

“Lovely cosy cottage for a relaxing break!”

Reviewed 22 Feb 2016

The cottage is well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay and is kept immaculately clean and well maintained by Linda the owner. She manages to combine perfectly the requirements of being attentive and unobtrusive as well as producing a wonderful meal by request on arrival. With excellent walks from the doorstep the hot tub always came in very handy for aching limbs!

Thank you! the hot tub does indeed come into its own after the woodland or beach walks, you can walk for miles from the cottage without realising it, however it is hard to get lost I have found using the shore as a reference a godsend thankfully. Linda :-)

“Perfectly Quiet Getaway”

Reviewed 14 Feb 2016

A wonderful little cottage, perfect to get away from it all and simply relax, We were met by Linda, who showed us round, and gave us a quick rundown on where everything is, She left us a bottle of wine in the fridge and The bed was laid out with Chocolates, It’s the small things that really make the cottage stand out. It is well appointed with everything you might need for a week or longer. Set down a small lane of the main road, you are surrounded by trees and not over looked by anyone. The village is less than a few minutes with a pub and the Italian restaurant. The beach only a ten minute walk away and also the train station which would take you up or down the Cambrian Line following the coast and through fantastic scenery. Not far from the Mountains which is great for an easy lakeside walk or anything that you want more challenging, though getting back to the cottage at the end of the day and slipping into the Hot Tub to soak after a day on the hills is bliss. A great cottage and we will be back again

Thank you! as you experienced there is so much to do and see in the area and that is why so many of my guests come back year after year , hope to see you back here very soon Linda :-)

“Four days in heaven”

Reviewed 13 Sep 2015

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"”

Reviewed 10 Sep 2015

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 :-)

“Lovely cottage”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2015

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”

Reviewed 20 Aug 2015

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”

Reviewed 8 Jul 2015

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 :-)
