  • "Had an amazing break in this wonderful cottage."

    Yes, it’s up a steep hill but we found different routes up and down and it took about 10 mins from beach front (reasonably fit group of adults and a 4 yr old). Everything you need is provided and the view from the hot tub was well worth the climb. Already looking at dates to re book and I never normally like to return to the same place.

  • "A beautiful and comfortable property with lots to enjoy in a stunning location."

    We were made to feel very welcome as soon as we met Joanne who showed us around and gave us some info on the area to make the most of our stay. The property had everything we needed, home from home comforts and lots more. The family thoroughly enjoyed a totally relaxed holiday. We really enjoyed exploring the different routes up to the property, quaint little passage ways passing so many different charming houses. We would definitely love to stay again and would highly recommend this property. Brilliant communication with both Sykes and Joanne. Thank you for a wonderful family break with memories to treasure.

  • "Cottage was beautiful , hot tub and views were amazing ."

    Cottage was spotlessly clean and JoAnne, housekeeper was a superstar. Distance from car parking was further than expected and climb to Cottage was very steep, steps a little easier We all had a really good break in a beautiful setting x

    We checked out early it was that bad. Have tried to negotiate with the owner, but sadly to no avail so he’ll be hearing from my solicitors now.

  • "Beautiful cottage with breathtaking views of Barmouth and unforgettable sunset displays."

    The cottage is clean and well equipped, comfy beds and lovely fireplace. I do, however, second Graham's (NOV/23) comments regarding significant points missed out in the property description regarding accessibility that could directly impact someone's experience. Any person with mobility issues should avoid this property as they will really struggle and require assistance like my in-laws did. It takes over 20 minutes walking ( not 5/6 minutes ) from the car park to get to the cottage and most of it is a very steep incline. Please ignore Google maps, no vehicles can go uphill, unless you're on a quad bike or a very small 4x4. No taxis or food deliveries go to the cottage either. If looking from the beach, the cottage seems to be the highest one on the hill, hence the amazing views! Tony was very helpful, we had a problem with the front door lock and as soon he was made aware of it by us, he acted promptly and had it rectified. Amazing property for the fit and healthy!

  • "First of all, we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tyn-Y-Ffynnon."

    Its unique location makes the climb up the hill very worthwhile! However, there are several important omissions in the description of the cottage that could have a detrimental bearing on the stay by the elderly, disabled and young children. There is no mention about the following, which in some cases could be considered to be hazardous: 1. There is no internal access to the lower floor bedroom. The only way to access this bedroom from the living area, was to use a choice of two sets of external stone / slate steps that were uneven and of different heights in places. Not good on dark and wet evenings! 2. The open stairs to the first floor are of polished wood with very shallow depth on the bend at the bottom of the steps. The bend proved to be difficult to use - especially when descending from the first floor. 3. Similarly, the open stairs to the second floor are of polished wood. This time, the potential hazard is at the top of the staircase where you have to navigate a right turn with a higher than usual step and nothing to hold on to. There is also an unguarded large gap on the right of the staircase at this point. 4. The outside tiers are fantastic but extreme caution needed to be used when using the steps as they are made of slate which were uneven and of different height in places. We hope the above comments are taken as constructive criticism as they are not intended to undermine this fantastic cottage. Anyone who is able bodied and not too young or old, will probably cope well with the layout . The cottage is very comfortably furnished and the kitchen and lounge are both fantastic, with superb views overlooking Barmouth harbour. There were five of us in our group, all pensioners with varying degrees of mobility. We all felt Sykes should have mentioned the above points, especially with regard to health and safety. Joanne (our housekeeper) was extremely helpful throughout our stay - nothing was too much trouble.

  • "Beautiful property with amazing views!"

    Our party consisted of 6 adults, 2 children & 1 dog. The property had everything you needed for a comfortable stay. The hot tub is a nice touch, especially after the graft of walking back up the hill (it is a tough walk especially with a pram & 2 children). Joanne is lovely, she meets you at the designated car park & takes all luggage up to the property on her quad, told us everything we needed to know, happy to help with anything. We would definitely return. Thank you :)

The property

This beautifully restored cottage is built into the mountainside of Dinas Oleu, overlooking Barmouth and affording views of the historic harbour, Mawddach Estuary, Barmouth Beach and town and the surrounding mountains.

Set over floor floors with superb attention to detail, Ty'n-Y-Ffynnon Cottage is a special escape for a family and groups of friends.

Due to the unique location of the property, vehicle access is very difficult, but luggage and shopping will be taken up to the property via quad bike on arrival between 2pm and 4pm.

Stepping inside, discover the lounge, boasting a stunning fireplace with woodburning stove and an exposed stone wall feature, along with a telescope nestled in a bay window, providing an excellent space for unwinding.

A few steps up leads into the kitchen, equipped with all the essentials for home-cooking, along with a breakfast bar with a stunning outlook over the town.

Venture to the first floor and discover the stunning family bathroom, complete with a walk-in shower and bath adjacent to a natural stone feature wall, plus there is also a double and a bunk bedroom.

Up another flight of stairs is the double bedroom built into the eaves, but please note there is restricted head height.

A final bedroom sits on the lower-ground-floor and features an en-suite shower room.

Perhaps the highlight of this home is the terraced garden set over multiple levels; there are two decked areas with patio furniture, a barbecue area, sun loungers and a top level with a covered hot tub and changing room, so there is plenty of room for group to spread out on a sunny day.

When you’re ready to explore, venture into Barmouth and discover the sandy beach, where you can spend your time sunbathing and paddling in the shores, or you might fancy trying your hand at range of watersports.

Discover the idyllic harbour where you can sample a range of fantastic eateries when you need to refuel, or simply indulge in traditional fish and chips if that’s what you fancy.

Cycle along Barmouth Bridge and down the scenic Mawddach Trail, which runs along the Mawddach Estuary, to the pretty town of Dolgellau.

Round off your break with the opportunity to explore the Corris Mine or delve into the local history at the Corris Steam Railway Museum and Railway, before returning home for a movie night.

Ty'n-Y-Ffynnon Cottage ticks all the boxes for a magnificent stay with your nearest and dearest.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
