Overlooking the lake of Llyn Celyn this character cottage with feature stone fireplaces, open fires and wood burner, has walks from the door.

Historic cottage with stunning lake and mountain views set in several acres of Snowdonia National Park

Ty-Hen Cottage is situated at the base of the mountains of Arenig Fach and Arenig Fawr and has stunning views directly over the lake of Llyn Celyn. This detached property is sited in an SSSI, where an abundance of unusual wildlife are regularly spotted. The area is also of particular historic interest, as the site is a former 16th century Quaker settlement consisting of Ty-Hen Cottage, along with a detached stone barn conversion. The site extends to 9.5 acres with both the cottage and the barn enjoying their own picnic areas; secluded areas of garden, private parking, but sharing access with the barn to a private wood and a large paddock and river frontage. For those feeling more adventurous enjoy a walk through the paddock and into the tranquil surroundings, experiencing the true essence of the Snowdonia National Park, where the paths wind through breathtaking scenery, pass secluded mountain lakes and where native falcons are often seen. Ty-Hen Cottage has the traditional look and feel of a Welsh cottage, yet the facilities complement the beams, slate floors and stone fireplaces. Golf can be found nearby. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 7 miles.

Ground floor: Living room. Dining room. Kitchen. Utility room. Bathroom with shower attachment and toilet. Slate stone floor and beams throughout. First floor: 3 bedrooms: 2 double (5ft), 1 twin. Cloakroom with toilet.

    Wonderful time in a beautiful area. Specifically picked for its remote location. Loved the stay and would stay again

    We wanted peace and quiet and we find it here. No internet, phones or mobiles disturbed us. The cottage had everything we needed. Our dog loved it so much that he didn't want to come with us. Sleeping with only the sound of the wind and the little rivulet was pure bliss. The cottage was clean and tidy. Beds were very good. All necessary kitchen utensils were available.

    Beautiful, remote location. Ideal for switching off to the world! The enclosed garden was perfect for our young dog. The kids enjoyed exploring the stream seeing newts & ddragonflies. Would definitely visit again.

    The cottage is nice and in a peaceful setting.However it is let down by the lack of a shower cubicle.With 5 of us in the property ,using a bath everyday was simply not practical.Also lack of a landline in the property is another letdown.You do not think about this unless you have an emergency(as it happened). We had to drive towards Bala to get mobile reception and had to wait there until emergency service contacted us back.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are very disappointed with an overall score of 4 as the cottage description does not state that the property has a shower cubicle but a shower attachment on bath only. This may not suit some guests when making an initial booking decision. The property is remote and idyllic but mobile reception is limited to handset and service provider choice, which is out of our control. But guests can use Skype or Whats app via wifi for communication in emergencies.

    The property is in a beautiful location with stunning views and scenery. The cottage is well equipped and has everything you need the only thing that was missing was a shower or some way of raising a shower head above your head. We had a lovely holiday despite the weather with lots to do in the local area. I would definitely recommend staying here and would be very happy to stay here again.
