    Such a cosy house that we have found to be more equipped than any other place we have been to. The location was perfect with lovely views and quick access to some great locations. We couldn’t ask for more really. Fantastic! The sheep outside the window were a real treat. Definitely would recommend.

It is in a lovely setting with beautiful sea views out of the bedroom window, so peaceful all you hear is the sheep! The owner is very welcoming and helpful. We stayed for a week this time but it wasn't enough I didn't want to leave. This is my favourite property out of many which we have stayed in I would highly recommend a visit. We will definitely be back.

  • "We had another fab holiday in beautiful North Wales made even more wonderful in this beautiful cottage."

    The setting was just perfect, so tranquil. Perfect for exploring North Wales. The Cottage had everything we needed and enough space for everyone. A large living room and kitchen diner and garden( with a bbq) for our family to spend quality time together, but also enough space to have some alone time. It was immaculate both inside and out. You could see the attention to detail and the personal touch from the owner. The owner left us a welcome hamper with lots of goodies and milk which we really appreciated. The owner came to welcome us and check whether everything was fine and came to say goodbye on our departure. So friendly and willing to help. Thank you for having us in your beautiful cottage. It felt so homely. It comes on top of the list of the many cottages we've stayed at. X

    Really loved the super comfy beds and bedding, nice big lounge and outdoor space. Great to travel to local beaches. Really superb butchers nearby. Really appreciate all the additional extras for kids eg stair gates and main gates etc. Could possible do with plates/bowls and cutlery for small children but that’s only a minor thing. You will not regret booking this holiday house!

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.

    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).

  • "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.

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.

  • "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,

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.

Note: This property sleeps a maximum of 7 adults.
