  • "Incredible stay at Tyn Llywn, it was the most perfect house and location for the 4 of us and our 3 dogs."

    The owner Bethan was incredibly helpful, organised and welcoming and allowed us to take our 3 dogs when we requested prior to booking. The pictures of the view from this house DO NOT do it justice- it was absolutely breath taking… particularly at sunrise and sunset!!! The hot tub was ready to use on arrival and was such an amazing addition to admire the view from! Really spacious, clean and comfortable house with everything you need. We highly enjoyed watching the sheep and lambs in the surrounding fields. Lovely enclosed garden/ patio area which was perfect for the dogs. Would highly recommend this property to anyone wishing to explore North Wales. We climbed Snowdon which was about an hour away by car. Enjoyed exploring Llangollen which is a 5 minute drive away- lots of amenities, pubs, cafes and restaurants.

  • "The house is up on a hill beside another holiday property but totally private from it."

    Views from every aspect are exceptional! Lovely welcome goodies on arrival. Very clean and warm .Spacious and cosy at the same time helped by with the open fire in the evening. You are permitted to walk through all the fields in the vicinity, provided dogs are on leads, there are lots of sheep! Hot tub enjoys the amazing views and is checked daily. LLangollen is a great little town with quaint independent shops, a handy Aldi and some nice pubs and cafes. Would certainly recommend this property.

  • "Outstanding."

    This word says it all. This cottage really is outstanding in everything. The cleanliness, comfort, warmth, facilities, just everything. Probably the best cottage we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in many. Loved the hot tub and the wood burner. Loved the views as the cottage is high up on the hill. We went following storm Arwen which knocked out the wi-fi but this did not detract from anything really as we had our phones. Welcome pack and gifts were amazing and the hosts were available should they be needed but just left us to get on with it. Fully recommend this place.

    Really enjoyed our week away especially as we had been due to get married in Australia and of course Covid stopped this happening. It wasn't as peaceful as we hoped due to work happening on the property next door so there was a lot of in and out of the access road however it didn't ruin our stay and I would highly recommend this cottage.

    Spotlessly clean, well equipped and views to die for...... We have stayed in a number of cottages over the years and this one is by far our number 1 favourite. The weather was horrendous for a couple of the days but even this didn’t spoil our holiday. If we win the lottery, we will be making Bethan an offer she can’t refuse. ❤️

    We had a fantastic week, the hot tub was a great addition and the views are breathtaking. It was very close to Llangollen which was a beautiful town and we also visited Snowdon, Colwyn Bay and Ironbridge which were around an hours drive from the property. We used a cab on the last night so everyone could have a drink, we would recommenced the Grouse Inn for food and drink, we had a lovely meal there on our final night and it had great views.

    Very friendly, contact and a much welcomed welcome pack, to get us started. It was perfect for us because it was quiet and secluded. Set in its on field surrounded by cows and sheep. We were in the country! Fabulous views that changed by the day and hour. Loved to see the mist in the valleys, the sunrise and when the sun set the vistas changed again. Better than T.V. True panoramic views, wonderful. My wife is a home bod, doesn't want to be away from her home for long, but she didn't want to leave the cottage it was so perfect and comfortable and so quiet. Even at this time of the year (October). She and I would both love to return preferably sooner, than later. Would book again. Excellent place to stay.

    The property was absolutely wonderful, anything you could need was right there on site. With so many well thought of extras and added touches. The hosts have really thought about how to make this a home away from home. It’s Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean with a completely secure garden for the kids and dog. You feel immediately relaxed and comfortable. The location is breathtaking! The views across the valleys are stunning. I haven’t stayed anywhere with a better view. And I loved being surrounded by the fields of sheep and cows, very peaceful to watch. And the garden is a great sun trap for pretty much the whole day! There is an Aldi and home bargains store about 5 mins drive away and the surrounding villages are beautiful, especially Llangollen, the corn mill pub was perfect overlooking the river and lovely food! The hot tub was brilliant!! You just can’t beat sitting in it at any time of day starring at the scenery, especially after a long walk. The hosts were wonderful, Bethan came to clean the hot tub every day, so it was always fresh and made sure we had everything we needed. Her phone number was supplied and told us if we had any problems to call. Thank you for such a lovely holiday, we shall be booking this place again!!

    I hope it remains an undiscovered diamond, so that we can stay there again and it's not 100% booked constantly. The house is all you can ask for for, spacious, clean, breathtaking view, perfect location, near amenities and thing to explore. The small problem we encountered was handled swiftly and 100% correctly. We wished that all cottages owners are like this one. The only minor thing to note is the status of the road up to the exit that leads you to the road up to the cottage. This road is the local counsels responsibly and not the cottage owner. Our car did not have a problem with all the potholes, but I can understand that car that are lower to teh ground can have a problem. We will definitely will come back.

The sheep on your doorstep is unreal in the mornings and seeing them following the farmers quad bike for their breakfast is so amazing to see, very well looked after and great farm to be secluded in . The hot tub which we only used a few times as we were too busy was very clean. The night sky was crystal clear, you could see the stars for miles, the views are gorgeous, the forests and the moutanins that you see from your window in the morning is mind blowing, you won't ever want to leave this perfect little escape from everyday life, you truly feel blessed to be there.

The property

Tyn Llwyn is a delightful cottage on the owners’ working livestock farm, with magnificent far reaching views over the surrounding Welsh hills, close to the small village of Glyndyfrdwy and five miles from the town of Llangollen.

With livestock in the surrounding fields, this wonderful cottage has superb character and charm, as well as offering light and attractive accommodation.

Tyn Llwyn has a comfortable and modern family living space.

Upon walking into the country style kitchen you will find stone floors and wood cream cabinets, then from here through French doors is the conservatory with a dining table, which is great for socialising and taking in the breathtaking views, where at night you can admire the clear night sky.

Also on the ground floor is a sitting room with a warming woodburning stove on a granite hearth, comfortable sofas and Freeview TV.

An oak staircase takes you upstairs to the master bedroom with en-suite shower room, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Outside there is the peace and quiet you can only imagine with views and wildlife on your doorstep.

You can sit back and unwind on the lawned garden, or after a busy day relax in the hot tub and take in the scenery.

The location of Tyn Llwyn is an equal distance between Corwen and Llangollen, so as you can imagine there is much to discover for all ages in the Vale of Llangollen.

You are also only two miles from the Moel Fferna slate quarry where you can enjoy stunning walks through the countryside.

Just some of the activities in the area include riding the white water, climbing high above the valley or cycling along beautiful and challenging trails.

If fishing is your favourite pastime, you can do that here too, and there are walks for all abilities in stunning scenery, including the most dramatic section of the Offa's Dyke path.

There's so much more to see and do in the area making this a quality base for everyone in your party.

Note: This property can be booked with Ref. 998607, together sleeping up to ten guests.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Llangollen 4.4 miles; Bala 14 miles.

The small village of Glyndyfrdwy is situated amidst the beautiful Dee Valley, just 4.4 miles from the picturesque town of Llangollen. Situated close to the foothills of the scenic Berwyn Mountains, the village is renowned as the home of Owain Glyndwr where, in 1400, he proclaimed himself Prince of Wales and thus began his 14-year rebellion against the English. Today you can still see Owain's Mount - the eroded remains of a 12th century castle motte, whilst the village itself offers a village pub. Great walking is available with the Offa's Dyke Pathway nearby, whilst canoeing on the River Dee is available for those who enjoy water sports. The nearby town of Llangollen offers a good range of shops, pubs and eateries and is internationally famous for its annual Musical Eisteddfod as well as for white water rafting opportunities. Take a steam train through the picturesque Dee Valley, visit the National Trust properties at Erddig or Chirk Castle or take some time to explore the Clwydian Hills or the delights of Snowdonia National Park. A fabulous location at any time of year!
