Ty’n y Coed Cottage is a delightful semi-detached stone built cottage in the pretty village of Dyffryn Ardudwy. A lovely, spacious garden, close to an incredible beach and a bright and airy interior, all ingredients for a fine welsh holiday! The cottage is ideal for a small family or a couple looking for a break away. The cottage has a very open plan feel, small and very comfortable, a welcoming escape from every day life and a calming place to recharge your batteries and enjoy this beautiful part of the world!
The village of Dyffryn Ardudwy lies on the coastal road between Harlech and Barmouth, the ideal location for both the beautiful Snowdonia Mountains and the Cambrian Coast. The beach, which is within ½ a mile of the house is nothing short of spectacular, a ten mile stretch of white beach and dunes, perfect for paddling and days of building sandcastles. For history lovers the castles in the area are a must, Harlech and Criccieth castles are close by and both have towns brimming with character and places to eat or drink. There is plenty of opportunity for rail enthusiasts with the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland railways both located in Porthmadog, about 16 miles away. For walkers, the Rhinog Mountains are close by as well as the mountains of Snowdon and Cader Idris. The area is abound with lakes and rivers and both Cwm Nantcol and Cwm Bychan are well worth a visit either on foot or by car. For those who like to bring their bikes the area around Coed Y Brenin, north of Dolgellau, is perfect with many purpose built bike paths. Or, cycle along the Mawddach Trail and enjoy a drink in the local pub. You can access the trail from Barmouth by crossing the footbridge by the railway line. Other places worth visiting include the Italianate village of Portmeirion, made famous by the TV series ’ The Prisoner’ and the Llechwedd Slate Caverns in Blaenau Ffestiniog, an area rich in slate mining history. To sum up, while we cannot guarantee the weather for your stay, the area does offer plenty of things to do and interesting places to visit. Beach ½ mile. Shop, pub and restaurant 200 yards.
