  • "Really nice cottage in the heart of Harlech - just a few minutes walk from the Castle and shops and path to the beach."

    Cottage was well equipped with attractive decor. Wood burner was a real bonus - even in August!! Trudi (host) was very helpful and accommodating when we were delayed by traffic on arrival. Only potential improvement would be a washing machine - though appreciate space is limited. Thoroughly recommend it as a place to stay - with easy access to the delightful sandy beach making it perfect for families.

  • "The beds were comfortable, the bathroom was cramped with nowhere to put items / clothing."

    The lighting in the main bedroom was good, however, the lighting in the sitting room was so subdued that it was difficult to read a newspaper or book, increased lighting is a must. The kitchen wall cupboards on the outside wall smelt very damp and musty when opening the cupboard doors. The kitchen was fairly well kitted out but would benefit from some good quality sharp knives, the oven and hob worked well and the frig and freezer and dishwasher were fine also. A printed map help us to find the free carpark would have been very useful, the attached map on the email sent by Trudi would not open so we spent 40 minutes driving round Harlech trying to find the free carpark which is hidden away behind the old school! We enjoyed sitting in the sun in the small courtyard garden, this cottage is dog friendly, we may well book this cottage again.

  • "Such a beautiful cottage with so much character."

    We had a lovely week-long stay. It had everything we needed and Harlech was a great base to explore Snowdonia. Beanie, our cavapoo, loved Harlech Beach! The designated roadside parking is on the very steep, narrow street but we had no problems. The enclosed rear courtyard is very small and not somewhere we would want to sit but the views from the bottom of the street are incredible so we would often wander down there to catch some of the most beautiful sunsets. Very friendly neighbours who were happy to see visitors again. Overall, we would definitely recommend Trudi's cottage and would love to stay again one day!!

  • "Such a wonderful short break."

    The cottage is lovely and provided an excellent base for our Harlech adventure. Trudi was a cracking host, the cottage was pristine on our arrival and the welcome pack had some lovely items. Completely won over by the cottage, Harlech beach, the golf course and fab restaurants. Will definitely be back ! Gareth, Rosie and Baxter.

  • "Cottage was really lovely, only down side is the enclosed space that we wanted for our dog was way too small."

    I would say this property needs a washing machine.

The property

Tucked away in a peaceful location within the town of Harlech, is this end-of-terrace, stone built cottage, Tryfar House.

This well-placed property is tucked inside the Snowdonia National Park, while also being a short walk from the main high street, attractions and amenities of Harlech, is also walking distance from the glorious sandy beach along Tremadog Bay, and offers a family or small group a fantastic base from which to explore the best of North Wales' coast and countryside.

Step inside the property to discover a well-equipped kitchen/diner with original tiled flooring and characterful wooden beams, as well as ample storage and preparation space to cook up delicious meals, to be enjoyed as a group around the dining table while you make plans for the duration of your stay.

Head into the homely sitting room, where the feature fireplace, complete with woodburning stove, takes centre stage and the beamed ceiling adds character and charm; relax onto the sofa as the warmth of the fire fills the room.

Head upstairs to find three bedrooms with stunning stripped wooden flooring and a choice of a king-size double with zip/link, a double and a single, providing a flexible sleeping arrangement for a variety of groups, all served by the contemporary shower room, complete with charming Velux window allowing in plenty of natural light.

Outside, you will find designated roadside parking, as well as an enclosed patio to the rear, ideal for letting your pet or little ones run around safely as you sit back and relax in your peaceful setting.

The centre of Harlech is a few minutes' walk away, with an array of shops, restaurants and cafés, while the imposing and impressive, World Heritage listed castle is just five minutes away.

Head to the beautiful beach along Tremadog Bay to enjoy fantastic coastal walks or just a family fun day out on the sand, while keen golfers will want to pay a visit to the renowned Royal St. David’s course.

The town of Barmouth is a short drive away, on the estuary of the River Mawddach and Cardigan Bay, where you will discover a host of magnificent beaches, secluded coves and diverse marine life, with dolphins and whales frequently spotted in the area.

Keen walkers and hikers will want to explore the Snowdonia National Park, where you will discover a varied landscape of natural lakes, craggy peaks, glacial landforms and secluded villages.

Hike one of its many famous peaks, including Snowdon, the highest peak in Wales, or for something less challenging but with equally rewarding views, take the Snowdon Mountain Railway, which climbs to the summit and offers views across the sea to Ireland.

There is so much wonderful scenery to explore from this fantastic holiday property, you'll want to return again and again.
