  • "Parking bay needs attention there is a leak in the bathroom that comes through the celling and drips on the table"

  • "Brin Tyrion was well presented, well stocked with everything we could want and in a lovely quiet location."

    It is ideally located for anyone who wants to explore North Wales. I would definitely consider using the property again. There are however 3 points I would highlight to potential holidaymakers: 1. The cottage is accessed via a very narrow lane with no passing places. It is not a busy lane but we met 2 cars and a tractor and had to reverse out of the lane each time; 2. The car park will take 2 cars but is surrounded by hedges and steep banks and was quite a job to get 2 cars on it. It might be hard to get 2 larger cars on the site and there was a large pothole at the entrance to the car park that you could not miss as the access was tight. 3. The advice is to park and carry your bags etc. to the house, it is circa 100 yards if you have to carry heavy bags.

  • "A fantastic property which is tucked away off the beaten track but close enough to civilisation that you don’t feel alienated."

    The Lane to the property is very tight and the parking bay requires some tarmac as there are grooves in the ground making it difficult to get tyre grip. The property was perfect for our family and very spacious and had most of the basic essentials required. The garden is lovely and a great sun trap. The location is fantastic as we had easy trips to Anglesey, Caernarfon and Llanberis to explore. Lovely walks from the property in all directions which was a bonus. We will hopefully return one day to enjoy this property.

  • "House is in a tranquil setting and we appreciated the beautiful quietness."

    A great base for days out. We appreciated the provision of such a wide collection of DVDs and games (both board and electronic). Care needed with the shower (in the bath) as water can get in the bath seal and drip into the lounge below. This is not a new problem, judging by the stain on the ceiling. With two double beds and a bunk bed, this property can sleep 5-6 people. However, drying towels after showers or baths is problematic as there is only one small towel rail in the unheated bathroom. We got by as we did not need to dry any clothes. The storage heater timer in the bunk bedroom is very noisy and could do with boxing/soundproofing. One last point should be a reference to the narrow country road. It was a tight squeeze for our medium family saloon (Audi A4), suffering scratches from brambles in the process. As advertised, the parking is 100m away but you can unpack outside the house steps – provided another vehicle doesn’t come down the road. A three-point turn is a challenge. Nevertheless, we enjoyed our week here.

  • "The cottage was lovely and clean and with the weather being as good as it was, we had a perfect holiday."

    We ventured out every day to somewhere new within a 40 minute radius so that we didn't spend to much time in the car and it worked a treat. so many places to see. Walking the dogs down the lanes and to the castle was nice and peaceful. The only thing I would point out is that the lane up to the cottage can be challenging to say the least. Definitely wing mirrors in all the way...apart from that, a very nice and pleasant cottage.

  • "Great cottage, lovely owners who were very responsive and helpful."

    The location was absolutely perfect. It was within easy reach of both the beach and mountains. We will definitely be back. Of note, when we clicked on the link on the email from Sykes for directions, this took us to a council estate about 3 miles away. The street had a same name. It would be worth checking and updating this for future visitors

  • "Was looking for a comfy cottage for my two boys and dog to relax after this crazy pandemic before starting school again and it didn’t disappoint."

    A trip that will stay with us forever. What an amazing cottage with everything you could possibly need, a real home away from home. Endless DVDs and board games which kept us entertained. Great views and walks close by. We got absolutely soaked on one of our walks and it was great to come back to the log fire. I bought my own wood to get me started and a bag of kindling cost £2.50 from the local garage. The electric heaters didn’t really work upstairs, downstairs was fine but after sitting in front of the fire all evening then jumping into the comfy bed with a thick duvet it wasn’t cold. My only issue was the lane getting to the cottage it was very very tight, wing mirrors in every time. There is a decent parking place with room to turn and then a small walk to the back gate. Even with the narrow lane which I knew before booking, it still wouldn’t stop me from booking again. I’m already planning my next trip

  • "Lovely house with an amazing selection of DVDs, CDs, games and consoles to entertain you on horrible wet days."

    Comfortable and clean in a lovely area with great views. Narrow lane leading to property needs some negotiating, large cars may find it difficult. Only problem was storage heating was inadequate and had to spend another £60.00 on logs and coal. Of course this is a personal thing and we did spend most of the time in the house. Anyone using it as a base may not find it a problem. Would definitely consider booking again.

  • "The cottage was nice, however access was not simple."

    ... Lanes are single track and walled so be prepared for a tight and tricky drive. Views were obscured downstairs by bushes, view from 2 main rooms was beautiful. Everything we needed was there a varied collection of DvD's and radio for the kitchen, sadly no fuel for the fire and it was so very cold without the fire. There are so many attractions to visit history, architecture and of course the mountain range. So quiet so pretty. Had to call the property owner for assistance (we got lost) and they were absolutely lovely.

The property

Llanrug 1.5 miles.

This quirky cottage is a traditional wonder, tucked away on a narrow country lane and featuring white and black paintwork giving the property an olde worlde aura, the perfect escape away from the modern of the 21st century.

This delightful detached property elevated and is perfect for a family trip away from the usual hustle and bustle of a city centre, it’s the ideal escape for tranquillity and relaxation with your loved ones.

The first thing you will come across as you enter the property is the large living area, equipped with an open fire and spacious seating, it’s a wonderful place to spend winter evenings cuddled up with a hot chocolate as you watch the snow fall down over the hills of Anglesey.

Alternatively, this property is also great for a summer break, with brilliant walking routes and close to Snowdonia National Park, it’s great for avid walkers or those wanting to explore the countryside of Wales.

The kitchen in the property is modest but perfect for preparing a meal for you to enjoy with the family in the separate dining room, each room offering its own magnificent views of Wales, it’s easy to lose track of time whilst nature spotting from any of the rooms in the cottage, promising a range of biodiversity, be sure to look out for the weird and wonderful European polecat.

Upstairs are three bedrooms which can host the whole family, from grandparents to grandchildren, the property hosts an array of sleeping arrangements, so that each member of the family gets a restful night’s sleep in a room that is suitable for them, particularly the children’s room which hosts dark wood-framed bunk beds, you’ll have no problem getting the kids into bed with this.

Outside is an partially-enclosed area, safe for both the kids and the dogs to run around on a warm summer’s morning whilst you relax on the decking with a coffee, or to make snow angels in the evening before rushing up for a hot bath.

The local area is great for exploration, with Bryn Bras Castle just 0.5 miles away to enrich yourself with history and carry on the traditional feel of the trip, and the glacial Llyn Padarn lake close by, offering panoramic views and woodland walks, there’s no better way to relax and unwind surrounded by stunning views in every corner of the village.

If you feel like venturing out further one day to explore more of the magnificent views of Wales, we recommend taking a trip to Portmerion, a quaint and quirky village designed in the style of an Italian village, take an architectural wander to the waterfront and get a bite to eat in one of the many attires scattered about the weird and wonderful scenic lands, be sure to check out its own festival, ‘No.6’ if you’re here in the sunnier month of September, hosting a mix, from music to art, it’s an experience like no other.

Bryn Tirion is a marvellous property for the whole family to enjoy, with lots to do and see both in the local area and further out in Wales, you’re in for an action-packed holiday with plenty of opportunities to unwind.

About the location


Llanberis 2 miles; Caernarfon 4 miles; Betws-y-Coed 15 miles.

Llanrug is a small village with two pubs, two shops, a Post Office, a hotel with indoor swimming pool and fitness room, and a 9 hole golf course is nearby. The village is situated in the foothills of the Snowdonia Mountain Range, only 3 miles from famous Llanberis. Dominated by the grandeur of the Snowdon Massif, Llanberis is flanked by two lakes, Llyn Padarn and Llyn Peris, and is one of the most popular mountain tourist centres in the Snowdonia National Park. Llanberis is something of a 'mecca' for walkers and climbers, being the starting point for the ascent of Snowdon - the highest mountain in Wales. The ascent can be made either by train, on the Snowdonia Mountain Railway, or on foot along one of the many routes to the summit. Llanberis boasts excellent places to eat and drink and a great choice of shopping. Just 4 miles from Llanrug, on the coast, is Caernarfon with its magnificent 13th century castle and town walls and close by are National Trust properties at Penrhyn and Plas Newydd and many wonderful beaches.
