“We are deeply grateful to the owners Rosie and Julian for coming to our rescue ,as my wife took ill in the night and a ambulance had to be called , she spent two days in A&E at Wrexham hospital and we had to cut our holiday short and come home.”
TY Bach is a lovely cottage tucked away in the Welsh hillside, we found a great advantage of viewing Google Earth and google earth street view before we left home it takes you right to the drive end on the lane up to the cottage ,be aware if you have a low car you will struggle on the farm road as it is a gravel track. On arrival at the cottage a welcome in the form of a nice bottle of wine was left for us , the cottage was lovely and clean and tidy and the view across the valley is something to die for ,if it is peace and quiet you are looking for this is the place for you , sat in the conservative on a night with a glass of wine viewing TV and dragging yourself away from the views. Reading other reviews people had placed regarding the cooker hob controls and the under floor heating Rosie gave us a demonstration and we managed without a problem.Do go and enjoy I am sure you will agree with us , Many thanks again to Rosie and Julian.

“Pleasant stay, but lack of space was a slight negative point”
Remote location with fine views (although shame about the telegraph/electricity wires), access track is steep but relatively pothole-free, owners are very friendly and I'm sure they'd go out of their way to help if there were any problems. The main issue for us was lack of space to put anything, especially in the conservatory - I think this needs a rethink in terms of the furniture provided (e.g. too many chairs and no free shelving or side tables; most of our personal possessions ended up on the floor). Kitchen is well equipped, but again there's very little space to put things when cooking. The heating remained a mystery to us throughout our stay, though this didn't matter because it wasn't cold - again, I'm sure the owners would sort this out if it became a major issue.
“The only downsides were the Hob,difficult to operate,and no t.”
V signal,the whole time we were there.and the fixed shower head,prefer a flexible shower.
“The house was clean, tidy and well equipped.”
It was in a beautiful location with lovely views.
“an absolute gem”
ty bach is an absolute gem of a place, very tranquil with all around lush views and great walks, its an ideal get away with no noise and lots of country relaxation, it has the perfect location, the owner was really friendly and left us to our own devices, we will definatly be booking again :)
Excellent cottage that provides wonderful access to snowdonia national park The owner Rosie very helpful and welcoming and felt reassured that she was available if anything was needed or advice. All round amazing trip and will return along with high recommendations !
“Excellent pre-honeymoon break!”
After a really hectic 2 weeks following our wedding we really needed a quiet and relaxing escape. This cottage was perfect for what we wanted. Cosy with amazing views in a beautiful part of Wales! The owners made us feel extremely welcome even before we arrived and were helpful, yet completely unobtrusive throughout. They weren't joking when they said it was a difficult farm track to get up though! Highly recommend using something with high ground clearance to get there. Would also recommend a pair of slippers for the curling up in the conservatory as the rest of the cottage has wonderful underfloor heating and you can really feel the difference! We had a wonderful time at Ty Bach and would love to return in future.
“Cymru Am Byth!”
Fantastic cottage, if you want to escape the stress and strains of life... Amazing views overlooking the Welsh countryside, beside the log burning stove. The owners Rosie & Julian are very friendly and make you feel welcome :) A perfectly located Tŷ bach in a gorgeous area, with a proud display of heritage and local history. This little house offers something for everyone :-)
“lovely place to be”
We stayed here in March, this year, lovely little place. There was just enough room for my fiancée, our eight month old daughter and myself. Amazing views and walks over the valleys. The couple who own the property are very helpful in advising us what to see and do in the beautiful area. I would highly recommend this.
“peace & quiet in abundance”
Lovely little cottage set on side of a hill, views of so many hill peaks. Free to roam round owners land. The owners, Rosie & Julian make you feel most welcome with help & advice, the dog & kids are adore-able too!! Even though we went when all the storms were battering the welsh coast the conservatory with its log fire was the ideal place to curl up with a book & a glass of wine.The only noise that broke the silence was the occasional jet fighter from raf valley going by & the gunshot of people shooting at pheasants(from what we saw the birds had the upper hand!!) Would definately go back again for a complete wind down.
If you are sick and tired of the noise and stress of the place where you live this is an ideal getaway cottage. Its peaceful and quiet with beautiful scenery around.
My partner Mike and I were looking for a weekend retreat, an escape from the city, somewhere pretty and rural but not too far from the beaten track. We found a lovely little holiday cottage, Ty Bach, near Maerdy. It was a delightful little detached cottage which has recently been refurbished with one double bedroom and a modern, fully equipped kitchen with dining area plus a shower room. We enjoyed exploring the area which offers the most amazing scenery. After a day's walking and some hearty pub fayre, we came back to the cottage and sat outside on the decking enjoying a bottle of wine. It was a really clear night and so tranquil. We just sat there for ages looking at the lights twinkling on the lake. The cottage is small but perfectly formed and offers a complete escape from the hustle and bustle. It is ideally located for exploring the Welsh countryside which offers great walks, loads of outdoor pursuits and country pubs. The town of Bala is just a few miles away which offers a good range of amenities. We will be back!
“Will definitely return!”
We have just returned after spending a week in beautiful and peaceful countryside. We experienced all four seasons in the week, ranging from hot sunshine to a snow blizzard and we loved it! The cottage, TY BACH, is maintained to a very high standard with excellent facilities. The owners are very friendly and helpful and we will certainly be staying again.
