  • "Lovely cottage, very well equipped and in a nice village."

    Just a shame so much let it down Not as clean as expected. The whole place needs a lot of tlc. A deep clean would be good. Some hair on the kitchen surfaces. I had to clean the fridge before we could use it. Coffee table in the living room was filthy. Cobwebs everywhere. Lots of dust in places. Toilet was also dirty, especially the base of the toilet. Hairs in the shower tray. Lots of spiders. Skirting boards and doors all need a good wipe down. My husband had to unblock the vacuum cleaner as it wasn't picking up a thing. Shower pressure was terrible. Sofa extremely uncomfortable. Would be nice if the bed was a king size instead of a double. Shame you can't watch regular TV either.

  • "We had an extremely last minute plan for a weekend away."

    Tenant Cottage is a reasonable cost cottage in a beautiful location, central to lots of different activities. Equipped with the basics it's a great little base.

  • "We had a fantastic stay over February half-term."

    The cottage is in a lovely quiet location close to many walks. We loved the size and comfort of the cottage, it had everything we needed. It was nicely decorated with comfy beds and furniture. The dogs particularly liked the kitchen tiled floor and back garden. Thank you, we would love to visit again.

  • "Absolutely superb, cosy, homely cottage, located in a very neighbourly, quiet and peaceful area just on the outskirts of the hustle and bustle of city life, which made our stay so much more enjoyable."

    Highly recommend this cottage and will surely be using again on our next visit. Thank you very much to the owners for making our maiden family visit to Wales such a remarkable one.

  • "We absolutely loved this little cottage and wish we had been able to stay longer than 2 nights!"

    The facilities were exceptional, everything we needed. The scenery is stunning. I think had we stayed longer we would have looked for other places to eat (plenty recommended in the visitors book) rather than Bala (just because it was busy) and we would have explored more. We will be back. Thanks

  • "We had a lovely stay at Tanat Cottage."

    The views from the bedroom window were just amazing and it felt like you weren’t in Wales. It was very well kept, clean and tidy and just like the pictures on the Sykes website. It had all the utensils we needed for cooking our meals. It’s also very cool with being in a Valley, which was refreshing. The nearest Tesco is about 30mins away in Welshpool, there is a Spar about 15mins or the town of Bala is 25mins away too, which also has a Spar and a Co-Op. We had a fabulous week weather wise which meant we went out and about exploring. Tanat Cottage is in good location with the nearest beach just over an hour away, but we ventured out to quite a few different beaches. We also ventured to the Lake at Bala, being able to dip your feet in the lake and watching my children play in the water was welcomed after the heat we had experienced. Aberdovey was a firm favourite with my children, situated about 1hr 20mins away. If using the sat nav on your phone like I did, set it going before leaving the cottage using the Wifi as there is no phone signal at all and doing it this way keeps the sat nav running regardless. The car park situated across the road was very close and free. It was always busy when we got back to the cottage but still a few places to park. We had a lovely week at the cottage, and I’m sure one day we will return. Donna, the owner was very responsive when I messaged regarding the car park before my holiday. Thankyou for welcoming us into your holiday home.

  • "Tanat cottage is small, ideal for a couple, but is a lovely place to stay."

    It was very clean and comfortable with good facilities. The mobile phone reception is very poor in that general area but the cottage has a very good wifi connection accessed via a QR code thoughtfully clearly displayed in the kitchen so that it is easy to connect. The owner and her housekeeper, Linda, couldn't have been more helpful. We had a lovely break, thank you. Pete

  • "The cottage is great!"

    Stylish, comfortable, well equipped. Draft proofing around the period front door could be improved - the kitchen floor gets very cold overnight, though the house is warm enough. We rigged something after that using the doormat and some weights. A minor niggle is that the main bedroom could accommodate a larger bed - If you are both tall a queen size is a bit cozy. The pub across the road has a good pint, but I would not eat there more than a few times. The scenery in the area is fantastic, but unfortunately many of the lower level footpaths marked on the OS map are overgrown or blocked. A good example is the loop to the south of the valley marked on the map by St Mellangel's Church - This was blocked by uncleared timber after logging where it crosses the creek. The local lanes / small roads are a pleasure to walk. Do not drive to the Pistyll Rhaeadr valley on a sunny Sunday afternoon - the single track road with passing places gets jammed up and the car park full (£5).

  • "Cottage was lovely and very clean with everything you need."

    Garden was much smaller than it looked on the website but was okay and safe for the dogs. On the information given for the cottage it should be noted that the butchers, grocery shop and post office etc. mentioned are a 15 minute drive away and all you have in the area of the cottage is one pub! There are no cafes either. Beautiful countryside and surrounding mountains and not far to civilisation :-) We loved it and had a very nice time :-)

  • "During our stay there was live music in the village."

    It was great and we enjoyed it however the stage was in the area right outside our cottage and the music was loud until quite late in the evening (revelers continued signing until 2am). No problem at all for us but if you had young children sleeping in the front bedroom or don't enjoy live music, it would probably be an issue. Might be worth warning potential renters that this could occur?

    There is no water pressure in the shower and it is hard to shower properly. Local pub, the food is not good. So you need to cook most nights.

About the location


Bala 13.2 miles; Shrewsbury 32.4 miles

The small village of Llangynog lies in the rolling countryside of North Powys, at the foot of Milltir Cerrig mountain. The River Afon Tant runs through the community, making it an ideal place for peaceful strolls, and you will find a stone-built church close-by to soak in the history. To dine out there is the New Inn, which enjoys scenic views of the Snowdonia Mountain range, and a short drive will lead you to a well-stocked Post Office to stock up on the essentials. Visit the historic market town of Bala for an action-packed day, where you can take up climbing, abseiling, mountain biking, as well as canoeing and kayaking on the glacial lake. Also, within easy reach is Llanrhaeadr Waterfall, the tallest single drop waterfall in England and Wales, or cross over the border into Shropshire to explore the town of Shrewsbury, steeped in history with its Grade I castle. This is a beautiful part of the country and is perfect for touring the rest of North and Mid Wales and Shropshire.
