  • "The cottage was absolutely delightful and a very relaxing place to stay in North Wales."

    It was very well equipped and the owner had provided everything that you could possibly want. Information about the area and things to do were sent prior to the visit so that one could plan well in advance. This was greatly appreciated. Highly recommended staying here. Thank you to Sue, the owner, for all your thoughtful touches.

    It was such a pleasure having you as guests, and having a chance for a chat while you were here too. I’m glad you were able to carve out some time together and had such a good time. It would be lovely to see you again if you have the chance. Property Owner

  • "We totally enjoyed the holiday home."

    It is as described with a lot of detail given to all the small things as well. The views outside are breathtaking and it is 15 minutes from Cardigan Bay and it’s beautiful beaches. Cader Idris peak is close by but I wouldn’t recommend it tbh it’s a very difficult climb, and I’d say climb to the lake and back! The cottage has everything you’ll need for your comforts and perfect holiday. Lake Bala is only 45 minutes away. Local walks are gorgeous and we made use of the cemetery behind the house for pray and yoga which was very spiritual for us as a family. This is the perfect family home and we would happily come again. Sue is a lovely host and an amazing person. Thank you

    I'm delighted you had such a good time and that you all made it back down from Cader Idris in one piece! It would be lovely to see you back again, thank you for being such great guests. Property Owner

  • "Such lovely accommodation."

    So clean and in good decoration. Fantastic host who was on hand to give advice and always friendly for a chat. Great communication too before hols started. Spacious accommodation with places to sit upstairs, in bedroom or the lounge. Only down side was no garden, there's a front patio to sit in the sun. But no where to have a BBQ or hang beach towels to air. That's the only negative I can think of. So many facilities and cooking things catered for. Such a lovely welcome hamper too.

    Thanks for such great feedback. It was lovely to have the chance for a chat and catch up with such a friendly family! Hope to see you again - and you can always pop round and use my washing line if you'd like to, Diolch yn fawr. Property Owner

    As an agent your perfromance was perfectly satisfactory and met my expectations, no complaints. The cottage itself is outstanding in all respects, helped of course by the fact that the owner is close at hand and made us extremely welcome. Her local knowledge. helpfulness and enthusiasm are as outstanding as the cottage itself.

    It was clean throughout. All rooms well equipped and comfortable, the kitchen worth a special mention - everything you need is there. Quiet location, near to both coast and mountains. Brilliant walks from the door. Bats, owls, kingfisher, kites, salmon to spot. Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable host. Very good internet.

  • "FABULOUS. One of the best kept secrets of Wales."

    Property and location were even better than expected. The cottage was very well equipped, even down to tea cosies and oven gloves. Very rural, although easy to find, but the hairpin bend is not for the faint-hearted. Spar and Co op in Tywyn sell most things, and you can even arrange deliveries from Asda and Tesco. Two slight niggles - no hook on the back of bathroom door for dressing gowns, and being open-plan I was aware of noise from the fridge when watching television. Lots of interesting places nearby, and a train ride along the coast is a must, but beware that not all cafes allow you to use their toilets. We will be back.

  • "Thank you so much, we enjoyed our stay at Y Bwthyn enormously."

    We visit it often in our memories. It's a very beautiful, well presented Chapel house with spectacular views of the hillside. We were made to feel especially welcome with a lovely hamper of delicious treats. The milk in the fridge was joy to behold as we had not managed to purchase any on route and we were all ready for a cup of tea when we arrived!! The interior is well thought out and cosy. It was lovely to have both a bathroom and walk in shower. There is attention to detail with plug in nightlights to help navigate the property at night and a discreet stair gate to safeguard younger visitors. Y Bwthyn is situated in a very quite area with an abundance of wildlife. We enjoyed many a morning and evening watching the nesting Martins and pipistrelle bats flying around. The three free range sheep who would walk past the Chapel on an evening, pause to stare at us before munching on the hedgerow, made us smile as we sat out enjoying a nightcap in the property's front garden. The Velux windows in the property allowed the light and breath taking views to stream in, adding to the serenity and beauty of the property. There are lots of lovely walks in the vicinity, such as bird rock and an iron age fort, Castlle Y Bere and large lake for wild water swimming. Aberdovey, Tywn, Barmouth and Dolgoch falls are all well worth a visit. It was lovely having Sue, who owned the property, so close by, and we did enjoy our chats and seeing her amazing photographs of animals, birds and landscapes. Thank you very much for having us.

    Situated in a beautiful location and very quiet. Great facilities, good shower and on suit down stairs but could do with shower above the bath in the upstairs bathroom. Comes well recommended.

    Thank's for such a great review, and I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. It was good to meet you, all be it briefly. Thank you for your constructive comments regards an over bath shower up stairs. We can consulted with bathroom experts, and in order retain the room features of original beams, large airy sky lights and oak floor, it is not possible to install an additional shower up stars. however, we have made it more explicit in the description, so future guests are aware that shower facilities are only available in the wet room.

    We received above and beyond in terms of extras, a welcome hamper which was delightful, but also ample other bits and bobs such as toilet rolls, dustbin bags, dishwasher tablets and so on. Cottage was beautifully clean and well furnished. Wet room was fab for my parents along with the downstairs bedroom. Location is extremely peaceful and relaxing. We enjoyed playing the board games that were provided, a proper family break. Upstairs could do with an additional shower over the bath, purely to ease congestion in the mornings in the downstairs shower room, but not a huge problem. Wifi was good. We thoroughly enjoyed our home from home.

The property

This historic converted chapel, lying in the small hamlet of Abertrinant, near Bryncrug, has stunning hill views and is a haven of quiet and peace.

It is only a 15 minute drive to the beach and less than 10 minutes to the nearest pub and restaurant. With step-free access from the off-road parking to the downstairs bedroom and en-suite shower room, Y Bwthyn is wheelchair accessible and perfect for families or friends, with a luxurious home away from home feel. The lovingly restored hallway leads to an open-plan living area with dining for seven people, featuring a quirky window above the layout and a charm-filled, well-equipped kitchen.

Sit back and relax in the warm cosy lounge area with its sumptuous sofas and wood burning-effect electric stove. Three bedrooms each boast their own unique personality; the first, an easily accessible bedroom, is located on the ground floor, complimented by a large en-suite wet room.

At the top of the stairs is a window and skylight nook with original beams, creating your own little haven to read a book or watch the abundant wildlife.

Two further bedrooms are located on the first floor, a beautiful double with a lounge area, and a spacious, light and airy family suite with 3 single beds, which can be arranged by request as a king-size and a single.

The upstairs bathroom features historic timber beams from the original chapel, and its large airy skylights and solid oak floor makes it perfect to relax in the bath beneath the sky.

While these luxurious timber features means there is no upstairs shower, the downstairs wet room offers the cottage's spacious shower facilities.

Appreciate the stunning views from the enclosed front terrace, where you can dine outside as you listen to birdsong.

An open grassed area opposite the cottage offers a space for games, and there is permission to use the independently-owned grassed area behind the cottage for quiet sitting, yoga or simply drinking in the view.

The area boasts some of the finest beaches in Britain, with miles of golden sand-dune-backed shoreline running from Aberdovey north to Tywyn, with its promenade, leisure centre, independent cinema, restaurants, cafes and steam railway.

The beaches are perfect for holidaymakers, swimmers and surfers as well as water sports enthusiasts in the local estuaries.

Bounded by the Dyfi, Dysynni and Mawddach valleys, the peaks of Cader Idris and the Aran Fawddwy ranges are within easy reach, with Coed y Brenin forest nearby. A precious cottage in a southern part of Snowdonia.
