Location description from owner
The North Wales region
Close to The Snowdonia National Park, Tywyn is ideally situated for whatever type of holiday you are looking for. Whatever you're into: fishing, surfing, kite boarding, sailing, mountain biking, bird watching, painting, landscape photography or horse riding, there are endless scenic places to explore. This region of Wales is without doubt a 'hidden gem' with some of the most spectacular scenery in Britain. This is a walker's paradise with Cader Idris just a few minutes drive away! Snowdon is only 60 minutes by car and the beautiful Coed Y Brenin Wood, with miles of mountain bike & walking tracks is just 30 minutes drive.Don't worry if you're not the active type, the effortless Mawddach Trail, featured in Julia Bradbury's 'Great Railway Walks' program, is accessible to everyone and takes you on a journey along one of the UK's most spectacular estuaries, brimming with wildlife. There are miles of beautiful unspoilt sandy beaches, as well as many local attractions, such as the Talyllyn Narrow Gauge Railway, which steams from Tywyn up to the mystical Dolgoch Falls. Just a few miles around the stunning Talyllyn Lake towards Corris, is the world renowned 'Centre for Alternative Technology' (or CAT) which is a fascinating place to visit and learn. Close to CAT is The Corris Craft Centre and King Arthurs Labyrinth, another must-visit place.
Tywyn has a sunny west facing 'Blue Flag' sandy beach. Don't miss the spectacular sunsets over the bay. From early Spring through till Autumn, dolphins and porpoise can be spotted close to the shore, an amazing sight to see! Its not unusual to see them on a daily basis in pods of up to 20. Tywyn is possibly the only place on the West Coast where you can park for FREE virtually right on the beach. There is level access to the town where there are supermarkets, shops, cafes, banks, a post office, cinema, health centre, cottage hospital, several churches, leisure centre and an indoor swimming pool. Just 5 minutes drive is the picturesque harbour village of Aberdovey, with the famous Aberdovey Golf Course plus several good restaurants & pubs.For watersport enthusiasts and visitors with families, there are uncrowded, sweeping, sandy beaches in Tywyn or Aberdovey (just a few minutes away). Depending on the conditions, Tywyn is a focal point for surfers & kayakers. Aberdovey is a well known wind surfing & sailing centre. Jet skiers are welcome in both resorts. Fishing trips can be arranged in Tywyn & Aberdovey all year round. This area is full of history dating back to pre-historic times. Just get slightly off the beaten track on the dozens of public footpaths and you will come across standing stones, stone circles, abandoned farmhouses, castles & ancient churches.Places within a just few miles NOT TO BE MISSED:Aberdovey, lovely old fishing village, GOLF & SAILING haven, with many good restaurants, pubs & coffee shops.St Cadvans Church in Tywyn dating back 1500 years with the Cadvan Stones, which are apparently the oldest known inscriptions of the Welsh language.Dolgoch Falls, spectacular waterfalls and woodland walk, look out for fairies and witches!Cregennan Lake near Arthog, stunning location, with views of the Mawddach Estuary.The Barmouth Bridge, built by Brunel. You must walk over it and enjoy the Mawddach, then explore Barmouth, with excellent beaches and the harbour. There are good shops, numerous coffee shops & pubs. The Last Inn & Davey Jones Locker are particularly good.Cader Idris & Llyn Cau, most walkers agree is more scenic than Snowdon.The Bearded Lake above Aberdovey, mystical place of legends, with amazing view of the Dovey Estuary.The Dysynni River & reed beds. A wild life haven for, geese, ducks and herons. Fishing with a permit.Bird Rock. 500 years ago the sea came up to the rock, but the Cormorant still breed here.

“Ideal location overlooking beach/sea, clean bright airy house”
5 adults and one baby stayed in the house. The weather was glorious which makes a difference. Bearing in mind there were only 5 of us, it was a spacious light and airy house with a fabulous balcony. We loved the views front and back. Ideal location across from beach and easy walk into town. Town has lots of different shops and eating places. Salt Marsh was our favourite.Lots of lovely places to visit nearby. Saw dolphins including a baby the morning we left. Limited hanging space for clothes: recycling was a bit of a nightmare and we ended up going to Mach' to get rid of it as there didnt seem to be enough boxes to put it in. More place mats to protect the furniture would be helpful. These things would not put us off returning. Would defiantly go back again.
“Could be so much better.....”
The house itself is perfectly situated on Tywyn sea front. It is well proportioned and kitchen and bathroom fixtures and fittings are of a high standard. It has a wonderful balcony that has the sun (when it’s shining!) for most of the day. Just look past the car parking area and the views out to sea are terrific although sadly we didn’t see any dolphins while we were there. This house could be perfect, BUT there are issues which spoil it unfortunately. Firstly, it was not clean. I could write a list, but if I say that the main double bed bed-linen had not been changed *, and there was still toilet paper from the previous occupants in one toilet, you get the picture. Also, if someone spent more than 30 seconds cleaning the en-suite shower tray they would know that the plug was very slow to drain, and needs unblocking. The second main issue was the lack of furniture in 3 out of 4 bedrooms. For example, there was no chest of drawers/ shelves/cupboards to put belongings in or on. Consequently we had to live out of our suitcases for the weekend, not really what we’d paid a lot of money to do. Disappointing. Scanning the Visitors Book I noted that at least one other party had mentioned this a year previously. * (We did manage to contact the agent pretty promptly and he came out and changed the linen and vacuumed the carpet pretty promptly).
Thank you for your comments and recommendations. We did respond within an hour of this guest reporting the issue with the bed and we did try to reassure her that the bed had been changed, but we changed it anyway. Having changed probably 500 beds in the season with a rigorous system we feel it is very unlikely that this bed had not been changed. Also,it is our policy to only change toilet rolls when they are 3/4 used this is an environmental issue and the policy of the most hotels. Every room at Craig Gwyn has a wardrobe with the exception of the one double which has a wardrobe on the landing. The bunk room has a wooden cot, so there is no room for anything else. Hope that helps.
We have just come back from a great girls weekend in Tywyn. We stayed in the house and it is very comfortable and great for a big group. Had everything we could have possibly needed for the weekend. Amazing view of the sea and right on the beach. We also got the train to Barmouth for the day, house is about 10 mins walk from the station so very easy to do. Also close by a very large co-op shop. We didn't want to leave!
Beautiful place. Perfect house for a family holiday. So close to the beach and stunning views from the balconey. Throughly enjoyed by all.
“Beautiful house which made a fantastic beach holiday base.”
We had a brilliant bank holiday weekend. The house is stunning with beautiful views of the sea and had everything we needed plus a few extras such as a fab docking station for our ipods, proper size wine glasses and mugs and a great wet room / garage for coming straight off the beach. The only sad part was that we didn't see any dolphins!
