  • "Had a lovely weeks holiday, didn't want to leave!"

    Cottage clean, tidy and well equipped. Bed really comfy. Quiet rural location but within easy walking distance to local shops. Friendly hosts, on hand if you have any problems. Beaches, cafes and pubs just a short drive away. Would recommend and stay again.

  • "We had a really nice time at Ynys."

    It’s a lovely cottage and we arrived to find it clean and tidy with cake, tea, coffee, and milk waiting for us! The games room and play area was ideal for the children and kept them entertained along with the all-important Wi-Fi connection. The location meant we could easily get to everywhere we wanted, with beautiful beaches less than 10 minutes away. However, simply sitting in the garden enjoying the peace and quiet in the late afternoon sunshine had to be one of our favourite activities, and we’re already thinking about staying again next year.

  • "We were not aware that there was no downstairs toilet but did discover a downstairs toilet in the laundry room ,nearby ,outside."

    The garden did not have a gate which would have been useful with toddler and dog but otherwise we were quite satisfied The owner came to fit a stair gate and this was appreciated .

  • "Ynys is a lovely holiday cottage."

    Everything we needed for a cosy, comfortable stay was provided as well as quality biscuits, tea, coffee and milk to welcome us on arrival. The cottage is near the end of a country lane and we loved getting away from it all. The surrounding countryside and beaches are very beautiful and we plan to revisit.

As the night unfolds, select between three charming bedrooms, including a double with en-suite, a further double, and a single, serviced by a bathroom.

Come morning, prepare for a day of hiking and exploration whilst the children of your party enjoy the play area, before embarking on an adventure across the Snowdonia National Park.

About the location


Harlech 5 miles; Barmouth 5 miles.

The pleasant village of Dyffryn Ardudwy quietly nestles between The Rhinogs, part of the Snowdonia Mountains, and the stunning golden beaches of the North Wales coastline. The unusual positioning of this charming village results in it having its own mild climate, as well as offering good local shops. The surrounding area has an exciting array of wildlife and birds including soaring buzzards. The small town of Harlech is just 4 miles away, dominated by its majestic 13th century castle which is a World Heritage Site, and the most impressive of all the castles built in North Wales by Edward I. Popular with golfers due to its famous Royal St. David's course, Harlech also boasts an excellent variety of amenities including some good quality restaurants. Nearby Barmouth offers an amazing Panorama Walk with breathtaking views and also a harbour from which you can enjoy a ferry to Fairbourne for a ride on the miniature railway or a boat trip out to sea to try mackerel fishing. With the delights of Snowdonia National Park and beautiful Cardigan Bay to discover, this is a fantastic holiday location at any time of the year.
