  • "A disappointing and frustrating stay."

    Despite clear and friendly communication in advance, we were surprised by the extensive rules and watchful eye from our hosts during our holiday. If we’d known in advance the expectations of guests, we wouldn’t have booked. After a 3-night stay, we were left with excessive cleaning charges, along with damage costs without satisfactory evidence. This included fines for extra laundry after using the towels and sheets provided in the house for 9 people, fines for leaving the bins bagged up in the kitchen on our last day instead of outside the house, charges for a deep clean of the aga oven, as well as £100 charge to shampoo the carpets despite no damage having been made. The hosts attended the property each day without announcement to check PH levels of the hot tub which left us feeling uneasy, whilst also claiming we left lights on in rooms we weren’t using. We feel the hosts are averse to the property being used in the capacity it is advertised as and unfortunately, we wouldn’t recommend booking this property.

  • "Extremely remote and quiet location with lovely views."

    Kim and Jon are very welcoming and helpful. Immaculately clean and very well equipped. The hot tub was enjoyed by all. The drive down the lane and up the track is initially daunting but you soon get used to it!

The property

Perched near the Berwyn mountains in the Tanat Valley in Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant in Powys, is this superb detached character farmhouse, Tynllwyn Holiday Home.

Originally built in the 16th century and enjoying expansive countryside views, it's the ideal setting for a large family or friends gathering, close to Snowdonia National Park.

Park up in one of three off-road parking spaces next to the owner’s home and unload your bags whilst absorbing your exceptional surroundings.

Stepping into the property, be welcomed into the traditional kitchen/diner, where you can enjoy whipping up delicious treats for your guests on the AGA, before settling down to enjoy dinner together around the dining room table.

You will also benefit from a utility room, which houses a washing machine, tumble dryer and additional freezer for extra storage.

Retire to the sitting room, with its impressive character beams, and put your feet up on the plush leather sofa to watch your favourite show on the TV.

For cooler evenings, enjoy a movie night with your guests in the homely snug, with its original flagstone floors and woodburning stove for added warmth.

Look forward to respite with a hot soak in the ground-floor bathroom, where you can escape reality with your favourite book.

As the evening draws to a close, climb the stairs to discover five tastefully decorated bedrooms with beautiful countryside views - three doubles and two singles - where you can enjoy catching your rest.

Kick start your day with a refreshing shower in the shower room, as your towel warms on the heated towel rail.

Moving through the property you will find a playroom/study filled with games and toys for the children to enjoy, as well as two single beds for additional guests.

Outside, fire up the barbecue for an alfresco dining experience as your guests enjoy relaxing in the spacious hot tub.

Explore your local surroundings with a trip into the village, where you will find a small selection of amenities, including two well-stocked general stores, a Post Office, a café, fish & chip shop and two pubs serving local ales and delicious food, perfect for when you do not fancy cooking one evening.

The town is surrounded by fantastic countryside, so grab your walking boots and enjoy a variety of walking trails, including a walk which leads to the magnificent 240ft waterfall of Pistyll Rhaeadr.

Take the short drive to the beautiful setting of Lake Vyrnwy, where you can embark on the Lake Vyrnwy Sculpture Trail and see artwork created by international artists whilst enjoying impressive views of the lake itself.

For those interested in birdwatching and local wildlife, make a stop at the RSPB Lake Vyrnwy, where you can walk the largest organic farm in England and Wales, enjoy a cycle around the lake or enjoy a bite at the on-site shop.

Walkers will delight further at the Giants of Vyrnwy Trail, with its glorious walk through the tall trees and the fascinating tree trunk sculpture of the Giant Hand of Vyrnwy.

Nearby is the quaint town of Bala, well-known for its vast lake where you can try your hand at kayaking and canoeing, or thrill-seeking activities like white water rafting, mountain biking, archery and abseiling.

For a memorable stay with family and friends in an idyllic setting, look no further than Tynllwyn Holiday Home.
