  • "Lovely cottage with high quality furnishings and fittings."

    Comfortable beds and quality bedding. The cottage is close to beautiful beaches and countryside and has distant sea views. The Owner was very welcoming and helpful and the cottage could not have been cleaner which is good in these Covid times. It is a very well equipped property. Would love to visit again.

  • "We had a fabulous stay at Tyn Y Buarth which was set in a quiet, peaceful location with outstanding views."

    The house was very well equipped and extremely clean and comfortable, with lovely garden furniture which we made full use of thanks to the amazing weather we had. There was a welcome basket too which included some lovely Welsh goodies. Would definitely recommend.

  • "Tyn y Buarth is a fabulous, spacious house in a scenic and peaceful location."

    The accommodation is immaculate and very comfortable, with high quality furnishings and everything you need. There's plenty of parking and a nice area to sit out. The owner is very helpful and friendly. We had a lovely stay at the property and would highly recommend it. We caught the train from Dyffryn station to Barmouth and also to Criccieth and walked along the beautiful Welsh Coastal Path to Porthmadog then caught the train back to Dyffryn - you need to request the stop with the guard and you can buy your tickets onboard. It's a beautiful area to visit.

  • "Excellent accommodation in a beautiful location."

    This was our second visit to Tyn y Buarth and we really enjoyed our stay again. Brilliant views and peaceful surroundings. Plenty of beautiful walks in the local area in the mountains and along the extensive beaches. Well equipped, clean and comfortable accommodation and ample off road parking. Owners very friendly and helpful. We will definitely return for a third visit. Thank you.

  • "We had a great week here in October."

    Welsh weather did not disappoint - wet and windy - but that's what you expect at this time of the year! It didn't stop us enjoying the local area though. The house was very clean and warm and felt very "Covid Safe" and had everything we needed, and more. Enough room for our extended family to be very comfortable. Thank you for a very good break, we will certainly book here again.

  • "October 2021 Tyn Y Buarth is a lovely property that has been refurbished and maintained to a very high standard with quality furnishings and fittings indoors and outside in the garden."

    Ideally positioned, a ‘homely’ base to explore both the coast and hills of Snowdonia. With views across fields to the sand dunes and sea and glorious sunsets (weather permitting). The owner made everything feel very Covid safe and was available should we need anything. One of the best self catering properties in UK that we have stayed in, would happily return.

  • "A totally 5 star experience."

    Tyn Y Buarth is located in an idyllic position between Barmouth and Harlech around 25 mins walk to beach. The house exceeded all our expectations, immaculate from top to bottom and managed to feel like "home from home" within moments of arriving, to the point that I would have liked to swap if for our own house! Bryony, the owner popped in to say hello, to check everything was OK and even brought us some food to feed to their sheep. Attention to detail was amazing and I have to say everything we could have needed from egyptian cotton bed linen to crockery of all types to every cooking utensil you could ever need was provided. We were very lucky to have superb weather (early September) and made use of the bbq on one evening with a perfect sunset to watch in the background. We would highly recommend Tyn Y Buarth and would happily say it is the best self catering accommodation that we have ever had the pleasure to stay in. We hope to return again for another stay in the future.

  • "The accomodation is by far one of the nicest places we have ever stayed in."

    I would like to make a special mention to the lady that prepared the place for us before our arrival, as it was absolutely spotless, she deserves credit for a wonderful job. Six of us stayed here, and we all had plenty of room. We were fortunate enough to have lovely weather, and were able to visit the surrounding attractions. It is a great base for visiting such places as Mount Snowdon and Zip World, which we were lucky enough to do both. It is also about a 25 minute walk to a lovely beach.

  • "Tyn y buarth, was by far the best holiday home we have been to in over 40 years."

    Everything was of the best quality. The extra's that we were not expecting (dish wash/washing machine tablets. Hand soap. Tea towels, fairy liquid, disinfectant wipes and sprays and lots more). Very spacious living room, a kitchen, filled with everything you could need to cook all meals. Lovely garden with table and chairs and a fantastic view over the fields to mountains and a glimpse of the sea. You couldn't ask for anything more. We had a fantastic weeks holiday.

  • "We stayed at Tyn Y Buarth for 2 weeks and had a fantastic holiday."

    The cottage was the best we have ever stayed in. It was a home from home so well equipped and comfortable. It was immaculate and spotlessly clean the cleanest cottage we have ever stayed in. Sykes were very helpful before we went as situations were changing due to the current covid pandemic. We should of been going to Mexico but obviously that was cancelled earlier in the year so we booked 2weeks in Wales. I can honestly say we had a fantastic holiday, cottage was gorgeous and surrounding area beautiful. Fabulous beaches, walks and restaurants. Would highly recommend a stay in this property.

  • "The Tyn Y Buarth cottage was so clean and well presented and we were so impressed with the amount of amenities left for us e."

    G. toilet roll, dishwasher tablets, hand wash etc. It really made our stay fuss free and we had a really enjoyable time. There were 6 adults and one infant staying in the house and there was plenty of room, we didn’t feel like we were on top of each other, and every room was beautifully furnished, clean and so well kept, everything looked and felt brand new! We had trouble finding the cottage based on the instructions on the email that was sent to us, they need updating and correcting and making much clearer but once we found it we were so impressed with the location, the garden and the house itself is beautiful. My only bit of constructive feedback really is very minor and didn’t taint our holiday it would have just made things even more perfect: there are only blinds in the bedrooms not curtains as well so a lot of light is let in, the bedrooms would be better if there were curtains; we felt that the sofas were big and comfortable but we could have done with a separate chair as well in the living room; the tap in the main bathroom was a bit stiff to switch on and it would have been nice to have been provided with a toothbrush holder. As I said they weren’t major things but just slight little tweaks that would have made it perfect. Over all we were so happy with our stay and would highly recommend the house and the location, and would happily stay here again!

  • "The property itself was lovely but there were a number of basic things missing:- No soap in the sinks by any of the toilets, No washing up liquid in the kitchen, No instruction as to what recycling went where (we had to look this up on the internet)."

    The heating was set to be very hot all night, and then cold in the day, We contacted the owners and this was sorted out very quickly. We are used to using airbnb properties, where there is usually a welcome pack of basic things, like a pint of milk, loaf of bread, salt and pepper and perhaps a bit of cooking oil. There was nothing in the cupboards of this type at all, which was disappointing. The addition of this basic range of things (with the addition of a few spices) makes a self catering cottage much easier to use, and therefore very much more attractive. There were no no shelves in either of the showers which was awkward and some of the blinds in the upstairs of the house were broken and needed careful arrangement to shut them,

    Everything required for holiday is provided in the house. Garden is well maintained and pleasant to sit outside. Would recommend that you follow instructions provided by owner rather than sat nav as this will take you down a very narrow lane whereas the instructions bring you exactly opposite the entrance to the house. Would fully recommend as a lovely holiday home

  • "Fabulous cottage, lovely location."

    Tyn y Buarth is one of the best cottages we have stayed in. It was very clean and comfortable with a homely feel about it. It is located down a quiet lane overlooking the countryside and is accompanied by the sounds of birds & sheep. We felt very relaxed during our stay - even though we enjoyed all of the activities around Snowdonia (which are easily accessible) during the day, we also enjoyed coming home to the cottage every night and could easily have stayed longer!!

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 and pubs. 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.
