  • "Lovely quiet NYE at Tŷ Capel Bach!"

    Sweet little cottage well equipped with everything we needed. Very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The wood burning fire was a big plus for us. Owners very friendly, responsive and we appreciated the direct contact. Thanks for the welcome basket!

  • "We had a lovely stay for my husbands birthday."

    The cottage is lovely and it was great base for us in north Wales. The cottage was cute and has everything you need and the owners left a lovely gift basket that was really kind of them. Only downside is the lack of parking but we knew that before we went. Don't expect much from the local pub. Apart from that I would thoroughly recommend it

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this simple but well presented cottage in a former slate mining village."

    It is well equipped and the welcome pack and message direct from the owners much appreciated. It should be emphasised that there is no parking immediately adjacent to the property and it is not sensible to try and stop outside as High Street is a surprisingly busy thoroughfare providing access to a large part of the village. It is in a great location for access to Snowdonia, Anglesey and Llyn Peninsula.

Boasting all ground-floor accommodation, pet-friendly living and proximity to the local amenities and the Snowdonia National Park, Tŷ Capel Bach welcomes two guests, perfect for couples or even two friends sharing, to experience the ultimate escape to North Wales.

Cross the threshold into your new home-from-home ready to recline in the homely sitting room in front of the roaring woodburning stove; allow the designated chef of the group to rustle up a tasty delicacy in the kitchen, taking advantage of a range of high-quality appliances prior to tucking in.

If you prefer to bask in your surroundings a little longer, why not step out into the enclosed patio to savour an alfresco affair as your pooch plays safely?

If you begin to feel sleepy, retreat to the double bedroom, boasting hand en-suite facilities, where you can wind down or get ready for the day in-style and catch up on some much-needed R&R.

If you can tear yourself away, begin your itinerary at the adrenaline-inducing Zip World Penrhyn Quarry, the perfect place to see your vast surroundings at a great height!

If you’re seeking a more relaxing pastime, head to the bustling city of Bangor, home to the National Trust owned Penrhyn Castle and Garden, Saint Deiniol’s Cathedral, Bangor Promenade and Garth Pier, where you can immerse yourself in local history or soak in the stunning sights of the Menai Strait, all before delighting dinner and drinks in one of several pubs and restaurants.

From your doorstep, you can also spend the day in the Snowdonia National Park, embark on a picturesque hike to Aber Falls, visit the Conwy Valley Railway Museum or challenge yourself by summiting Gylder Fawr or Yr Wyddfa.
