  • "We come to Talybont every year to visit family and have done for the last 20+ years."

    I can honestly say this is the nicest cottage we have ever rented. Great location, perfect space inside and out for family and dogs. We will definitely be back!

  • "We completely agree with the previous glowing reviews of Tyn Ffynnon."

    It really is an exceptional property and certainly deserves its five star rating. The house has been renovated to a very high quality finish and is a credit to the owner’s obvious hard work and vision. No detail has been ignored. An absolute stroke of genius is the outside warm water dog shower which was a lifesaver on a couple of occasions! We had fabulous week staying here especially as the weather improved considerably for us. This enabled us to get out and about to explore this beautiful part of Wales. It has everything from stunning beaches, mountains, ancient woodlands, waterfalls, heritage steam railways and historic buildings in abundance. We enjoyed visiting many of these but barely scratched the surface. You would need a lifetime! Tyn Ffynnon is the perfect base to do it. Richard the owner checked in with us on arrival to ensure we had everything we needed. The welcome pack was extremely generous and included traditional Welsh produce which left us wanting more. On the subject of food, we can highly recommend the London House Stores/Butcher a few metres away. Excellent award winning sausages and salt marsh Welsh lamb are available here. Also the Food Emporium in Harlech has an amazing and unusual selection of cheeses. For a meal out we can recommend The Victoria Inn in Llanbedr only a few minutes drive away. Dog friendly. We would not hesitate to recommend Tyn Ffynnon as a place to stay and hope to return sometime. Thank you for the privilege of letting us experience it for a week.

  • "A beautiful property."

    Renovated so tastefully with lots of thought put into the finishing touches too. Very clean, comfortable and well cared for. In a quiet location but within easy reach of beaches and the Snowdonia National Park. Would highly recommend. The driveway in is a little daunting at first but you do get used to it.

  • "Lovely spacious house, with plenty of room for 6 adults, beautifully furnished with well thought out details in all rooms."

    Kitchen well equipped for those that prefer/need to cook whilst away. Garden large and well enclosed keeping pets safe. Thoughtful welcome gifts for both adults and pets alike. Charlie and Chantelle have put a lot of thought into making the holiday experience easier and a home from home including spare toilet rolls, washing up liquid, foil, wraps, soap all things you normally have to remember or go and buy. The dogs are not forgotten either with dog tags with their holiday home details and an outside warm tap to clean them up after a splendid run on the beach. House well located for visits with Barmouth and Harlech about 10/15 mins away and a beach within walking distance through the village. Would recommend to all.

    It's a gorgeous, spacious, well equipped property - with a great kitchen. Really comfy beds and sofas. The main bedroom and en-suite bathroom is fabulous. Property is down a little drive off the road through the village and is quiet and private. 30 minutes walk to the lovely beach; 10 minutes walk to railway station (destinations include Harlech; Porthmadog and Barmouth); 1 minute walk to bus stops (same destinations as trains) and handy little Spar and butcher 2 minutes walk away. I'm sure we'll all return. Thank you.

  • "The cottage itself was beyond excellent."

    Every possible comfort and convenience was provided. Without doubt the best-appointed cottage we have ever stayed in. Our only issue was with the very narrow and difficult driveway. We both had quite large cars - as families going on holiday often do - and although there was a hint in the FINAL instructions to approach the driveway from one particular direction, we all felt that it would have been helpful in the INITIAL spec to have given some indication of this issue - perhaps even give an actual width measurement. We genuinely felt that if we had had our previous car, a BMW X5, we would not have been able to gain access at all. Our current X3 had millimetres to spare and getting in and out of the driveway was quite a hair-raising experience.
