Admire dramatic views over Cardigan Bay. Enjoy the well-tended gardens during your stay at this 18th-century house.

Dramatic views across Cardigan Bay to the distant mountain range of the Snowdonia National Park form an attractive backdrop for this idyllically located, spacious 18th-century house. Owned by the same family for many generations, it is comfortable and has been carefully maintained to offer a very good standard of holiday accommodation, and stands amid its own mature, well-tended gardens with views over a man-made lake stocked with fish. Guests can take advantage of a 20% discount on fishing at the owner’s fishery, 500 yards from the cottage. Full of charm and character, it adjoins another property, yet is completely self-contained with a separate driveway. There is also a small detached holiday cottage within the grounds. The owner offers a home cooked meal on arrival by prior arrangement and at extra charge.
The sheltered southern coast of the Lleyn Peninsula harbours a wealth of sandy beaches and coves; the nearest being a mere ¾ mile away. Here a temperate climate offers excellent opportunities for outdoor activities; sailing, windsurfing and water-skiing facilities abound, and there are some beautiful walking paths along the shore. Some of Wales’ best beaches are to be found an easy drive away at the tip of the Peninsula; Abersoch and Aberdaron in particular offer wide sandy stretches popular with watersports enthusiasts. Just over a mile away, lies the coastal town of Criccieth, where there is a sandy beach at low tide and a 13th-century castle perched on a rocky headland. Across the bay the dramatically located Harlech Castle stands as another testament to more turbulent times. For shopping, good dining and a weekly street market, visit the bustling port town of Pwllheli, 6 miles, while the holiday centre of Porthmadog has a wide range of facilities for rock climbing, riding, canoeing and fishing. From here it is an easy drive to visit the beautiful Italianate village of Portmeirion, with its forest walks, gardens and sandy beach. For a novel mode of transport along the coastline, hop aboard the Blaenau Ffestiniog Narrow-Gauge Railway, which still operates on a line first opened in 1836. Excellent walking and mountaineering locally. Five golf courses nearby (negotiated rates for local course). Horse riding nearby. Beach 2 miles. Shops 1¼ miles, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

    Due to a water leak at our originally booked destination, we were offered Ty Mawr as an alternative. How lucky we were! Such a great place in a stunning location with amazing coastal views. Large living spaces with lots of character. Ideal location for exploring NW Wales, with Snowdon only a 30 minute drive.

    The cottage was amazing, it was really cold outside, and nothing better at the end of a long walk with snow, that have a hot bath, a glass of wine or warm tea, while some enjoys the pleasure of cooking and chat, others were having fun in the games room. Lovely time, great facilities, Jane was very helpful and nice. 5 Stars!!!

    This is a spacious property. A little tired around the edges, but the new owners are making huge ongoing improvements. The bedlinen was crisp and clean and the beds comfy. The welcome is very warm from the owners, the location is very convenient for all the major attractions. Snowdon was a 30ish minute drive. Zip World 20-minutes and Dragon Raiders Segways only 10 minutes away. The house itself is vast. The two sitting rooms were handy, the full sized Pool table a real winner. Darts and a Wii were extensively used too. The ready-laid open fire was a very welcome sight, after a day climbing a snowy Snowdon in February! All in all, a really lovely holiday cottage and one we would definitely return to.

    Lovely house with lots of space. Beautiful location really handy for Snowdonia National Park. Really liked Criccieth, especially dog friendly beaches, coffee and ice cream shop and pub. Really clean on arrival but would have liked an information folder as well as tourist leaflets. Stunning views and nice garden. I think my dogs would have made a break for it if I had not watched them carefully as some of the fences are low. Fine for small dogs, though, provided they do not jump. Lovely to have the cafe at the bottom of the drive. Good food and friendly service.

    Lovely cottage for 8 of us and 3 dogs. The walk to the beach is a mile (not 3/4 as stated) and through sheep and cattle, so dogs on leads, but a lovely walk. This beach is stony, so sandy beaches need a drive. Convenient cafe at the bottom of the drive. Some attention is needed to details of equipment in the house.
