The property

Cynwyd 6.2 miles.

Idyllically positioned in a rural location on the edge of Snowdonia National Park rests this striking stone-built barn conversion, Tyddyn Tyfod.

Enveloped by wooded hills and craggy mountains and boasting an elegant and homely interior, Tyddyn Tyfod offers a luxurious base for a group retreat to the country.

Follow the track road to the foot of this charming dwelling and park up on the spacious driveway before unloading your bags and making your way inside your home-from-home for the duration of your trip.

Stepping over the threshold, be welcomed into the remarkable open-plan living space, with exposed beams, high vaulted ceilings and original stonework paired with high-quality furnishings and a stylish décor, perfectly blending traditional with contemporary.

Kick off your shoes and settle down in front of the television to catch up on your favourite shows following a day full of adventure whilst the glow of the rustic woodburning stove gently warms the room.

Discover the fully-fitted kitchen tucked away in the corner of the sociable space, beautifully-appointed with gleaming cupboards and housing a range of modern appliances including a handy dishwasher and washing machine.

Perch at the breakfast bar and share a bottle of wine with the designated chef as they make use of the facilities provided to cook up a storm before gathering together with your loved ones at the nearby dining table to enjoy your meal.

In the warmer months, take your experience outdoors with a spot of alfresco dining on the patio, enveloped by the peaceful backdrop of the surrounding wildlife and calming countryside setting, and warm your toes around the firepit as you recount the days adventures under the canopy of the stars.

As the day draws to a close, head back indoors to indulge in a bubble-bath in the elegant roll-top bath, or jump in the shower to wash away the day before hitting the sheets.

When sleep calls, you're spoilt for choice between two king-size bedrooms, positioned on the ground-floor for your convenience, both offering a zip/link feature to provide flexible sleeping arrangements, or climb the stairs to the first floor where you'll find an intimate single bedroom nestled alongside a double room, benefiting from a pull-out z-bed and access to it's own en-suite shower room.

Get better acquainted with your surroundings and embark on a two-footed adventure following the plethora of local walking routes available from your doorstep, or enjoy a leisurely stroll through the colourful grounds of the nearby Caerau Gardens followed by an indulgent slice of cake at the on-site cafe.

The quaint village of Cynwyd is a short journey away, home to the traditional country pub, The Blue Lion, serving delicious home-cooked meals prepared by an award-winning chef, or if you'd prefer, visit the well-stocked convenience store to pick up some ingredients to rustle up some tasty treats from the comfort of your holiday home.

Further afield is the tourist town of Bala, nestled on the banks of the renowned Bala Lake, here thrill-seekers can try their hand at watersports including windsurfing, whitewater rafting or canoeing, or if you'd prefer to stay on land, test your swing with a game of golf at the 10-hole course or journey through the picturesque countryside aboard a heritage locomotive at Bala Lake Railway.

Escape reality and treat your loved ones to a countryside retreat with a stay at Tyddyn Tyfod.
