  • "Thank you for allowing us to have such an amazing holiday."

    The property is beautiful, we loved the configuration of the bedrooms for our large family group and the security of the enclosed garden. The views are breathtaking and the sunsets were amazing. We loved the proximity to the beach, the playground, the local pub and the train station. We have all loved the hot tub. We enjoyed it so much we have already booked for next year.

  • "Great place, the evening view as the sun sets is stunning."

    We had a great week staying here. You are close to Barmouth and Tywyn via car or the train will take you even further afield. Walks around here are breathtaking. The owner was there when required, answered a couple of questions very easily and happily told us about the local hidden gems to visit. We will be back.

    What a lovely group, would host these guys again any time! Property Owner

  • "Excellent cottage!"

    We had a brilliant week. We were three families with young children and we had plenty of space, kids loved it. Lovely to wake up and see the sea! Cottage is clean and modern, warm and nicely furnished. Location is great, quiet, short drive to lots of things to do. The pub in the village is also excellent and very friendly.

    Lovely group, absolute pleasure to host, see you again! Property Owner

    Lovely house, warm and plenty of space. Facilities all worked well, kitchen, hot tub etc and enjoyed exploring the local area. Garden was good for a bit of garden cricket too! Owner gave us our space as well, but was always on hand in case we needed something. Thanks v much for a great stay! Would definitely recommend.

  • "Lovely bungalow, plenty of room and seating, clean and warm."

    Easy to manage flooring and surfaces. Wonderful situation with sea views. Comfort items could be improved, no welcome pack, no spare bin bags? bedside lights in one bedroom.... no socket for them? Grill on oven did not work, wash hand basins far too small, totally impractical. Towels barely big enough. Hot tub not hot enough for us. We had a lovely stay here for a week despite weather not being great. All in all, good value for money, room for improvement. Would recommend it to friends and family.

    Train station very close by so you can hop on to see other areas in Wales. Local shop and pub about 5 minutes walk away also. Hot tub was a great addition here and we sat and watched some amazing sun sets.

  • "We have just returned home after a week at Tan y Fedwen."

    What a fantastic place! The pictures don't do it justice, the house was lovely and spacious and the garden is huge. At one point, there were 9 of us, (ranging in age from 7 to 82) and it still felt like we had plenty of space. The kitchen was well equipped and we didn't really want for anything. The shower in the main bathroom was great too. The beds were very comfortable and the whole house was very clean. We all loved the hot tub, particularly on the cooler days, though we were extremely lucky with the weather. The proximity to the beach was a real plus, with the added bonus of seeing the pygmy goats on the way down! The beach is quite rocky, so bring beach shoes, but for a couple of hours around low tide, there is lots of sand and it's then much easier to paddle and swim. There are lots of rock pools, great for the little ones to explore, and while they're doing that, there are fantastic mountain views to enjoy. The sunsets from the terrace of the house are some of the most spectacular we have ever seen. There is a nice circular walk up the hill behind the house, but very steep so take water if you are planning to do this. The owner was friendly and approachable, always responding quickly to any queries we had. The shop in the village is fine for basics, although we did go around midday one day and they had run out of bread so probably best to get there early, otherwise there is a decent size Co-op in Tywyn. The pub in the village serves very good food but we were waiting a long time to be served (an hour and ten minutes before we got food), not sure if this is standard or they were having a bad night! We don't often return to the same holiday rental, but I have a feeling we will be back to Tan y Fedwen. An excellent stay, thank you!

  • "Unfortunately the listing wasn't really accurate for this property - we specifically wanted a property that was pet friendly and we had no time limit in using the hot tub as some listings specify that we cannot use it after 22:00."

    We got help over the phone by Rebecca and she gave us 3 options to choose from. From the listing the property seemed perfect, large enclosed garden for the dogs outdoor hot tub for the adults so we decided and booked it on spot. Once we rang the owner for the keys new rules and info appeared. The owner actually lives next door and right in front of the property he has pods as well that he rents that meant for us - "absolutely no noise after 22:00" and also it was mentioned the fact that he will keep an eye on us whilst we stay there. We were also advised that all dogs should be on the lead whilst outside the house - so all that nice "enclosed" area (is not actually enclosed as there is no gate and no fence) was not accessible for our pets although the owner has a small dog that actually walks around freely - that didn't seemed fair. The owner actually advised that the beach is at walking distance and our dogs can walk freely over there - indeed it was at walking distance but the whole area is covered in rocks - not the best environment for a dog to run and play. Other than that they were friendly and helpful we just all wish that we had the info before actually booking and paying for the property

  • "Tan Y Fedwen was in a lovely quiet location, close to the beach and overlooking the sea."

    It is a large house with lots of space. The owner was very helpful and attentive to our needs. He is making improvements to the house and the upcoming wood burner will be a great addition. The main bathroom is new and the furniture is in good condition. We would suggest swapping out the cutlery and crockery in the future for a higher quality set. We loved the hot tub.

  • "This was a great find."

    Everything about the house and area was excellent especially if you're looking for a quiet place it’s truly Beautiful and in a wonderful location close to the beaches and mountains. The view from the garden is amazing. The owner is just next door he is there when you need him, he also gave us some leaflets for attractions around the area. Kids went to feed the goat next door they really enjoyed it. They played ball games in the garden its totally enclosed with stunning views. On a rainy day the Kids spent most of their time in the games room with their own tv and games provided. They enjoyed horse riding and was only 6 mins of driving there!!! The accommodation is comfortable and very clean it has a Wonderful large kitchen well equipped with almost everything you might need. I would definitely not hesitate to recommend it to families. We are looking forward to book it next year. Thank you so much

Positioned within the Welsh village of Llwyngwril, between the Cardigan Bay coast and the peaceful countryside of the Cambrian Mountains, is Tan Y Fedwen.

This detached bungalow is nestled within the grounds of Hendre Hall on five acres of land, having over a quarter of acre designated as the garden for customers.

Tan Y Fedwen offers a cosy yet spacious feel inside, with views of the entire Llyn Peninsula coastline and is situated in the Snowdonia National Park and within easy reach of Mount Snowdon and Cader Idris.

There is a double-gated entrance and a long, sweeping driveway to the property with ample parking.

The lounge invites you to share quality time on the two luxurious corner sofas together, with a wall-mounted Smart TV and wood flooring leading round to the dining area to form an L shape.

There are picture frames on the walls showcasing scenes of local beaches, areas you might want to visit nearby and animals which can be visited and fed on site.

Food bags to feed the Pygmy Goats are available at the Hendre Hall Glamping site reception next door.

Through the double doors is the conservatory, a delightful place to sit in harmony with the outdoor space enjoy the costal views.

The kitchen is spacious and fully equipped for cooking up a tasty meal.

The snug games room is ideal for the kids to enjoy some down time in front of the TV.

Just off from the games room is a utility with a fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine, and on from here is a cloakroom.

Along the main hallway are the bedrooms with crisp white linens and perfect sea views; there are three doubles, one with an en-suite shower room, followed by a family room with four single beds, ideal for the little ones.

Outside you have a large garden, which wraps itself around the exterior and there is a private footpath leading through the owner's farm camp site next door where the Pygmy Goats can be found.

This path also connects to a private path down to the beach.

Enjoy some of the infamous blood red sunsets and on a walk to the beach you may even be lucky enough to spot dolphins gliding through the water on an adventure.

The local children’s play park is also situated next door to Hendre Hall.

Llwyngwril offers a pleasant pub, riverside walks and the train station is less than a five minute walk from the property which gives customers access to the famous Cambrian Coast railway line and all the towns along its route such as Aberdyfi, Barmouth and Pwllheli to name a few.

Connections can also be had to Birmingham New Street and Aberystwyth.

There are many other places to visit just a stone's throw from the cottage, leaflets for which can be picked up at reception next door.

The Mawddach trail offers an eight-mile cycle route from Dolgellau to Morfa Mawddach railway station and over the infamous Barmouth Bridge, Tal Y Llyn vintage steam railway in Tywyn, the pretty Italian-style village of Portmeirion, Coed Y Brenin forest park, also Aberdyfi positioned on the north side of the Dyfi Estuary.
