A wonderful week away in a beautiful location.. The cottage is well equipped, spacious and nicely decorated. Within walking distance of the local village, which has a shop and pub. A little further along you can find the Bala Lake Railway. Weather was perfect for September, which meant many an evening spent in the hot tub, enjoying the peaceful surroundings, and the sheep paying us a visit to the fence! Kitchen has everything you needed to cook for a large group, we even did Sunday dinner from scratch! Heating wasn’t on when we stayed, but house soon warmed up with log burner, and we found we didn’t need the heating. Hot water plentiful and shower pressure was great. Being very rural it was great for stargazers. Plenty of activities nearby. We caught the train up Snowdon, walked to the summit and back down. White water rafting just down the road was exhilarating, as was the GYG Karting, again not too far away. For a first time visit to Wales we said we would definitely visit again. Only thing that was missing was an iron at the cottage which would have been handy, although we managed without. Thank you for providing a lovely place to stay.

Everything.. The Location, the accommodation, the hot tub, the wood burner, the stream down the road, the beautiful sunrises at 06.00, loads to do in the local area. There was nothing to fault.
We would return as there is still so much to do.

The property is very well located.. However 1. bed mattresses are thin and uncomfortable 2. The house did not feel for a e.g. v dirty toilet brushes and holders, dead spiders in the crockery, glassware dusty 3. Spider webs across the entrance to cupboard containing cleaning items 4. Old dustpan and brush - would be easy to get a new one 5. Did read no towels available so brought these. But did not realise there would be no oven gloves, tea towels etc and not clear of justification for this.

Perfect socially isolated holiday location .. We had a very enjoyable week.
Mr Clarke, July 2020
We have stayed at the same property twice in 2019.. We like its location & in-house facilities making it the ideal property holiday for 8 of us. We will be planning more stays at Ty Mawr in 2020.
Ty Mawr Cottage exceeded our expectations.. We were 2 family's that went away for the Christmas week together. The house and grounds have so much space you can not feel ontop of eachother. From sitting by the fire in the evening to using the hot tub and going for lovely country walks this place is the ultimate cottage for a family/friends gathering. Thank you for making our Christmas a special one. One that our 4 little ones will hopefully remember forever.
WE WANTED TO STAY AT TY MAWR, LLANUWCHLLYN, BECAUSE OUR GREAT GRANDPARENTS LIVED THERE AT THE END OF THE 19TH CENTURY.. WE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A SPECIAL PLACE TO HAVE A FAMILY REUNION WHICH WAS MOST SUCCESSFUL. THE LOCATION IS LOVELY AND THE COTTAGE WAS REALLY COMFORTABLE. WE WILL RETURN!
Ty Mawr is lovely, a perfectly placed house for a holiday in Snowdonia, clean, welcoming and well equipped..
We particularly enjoyed the hot tub and the very generous supply of good logs for the lounge stove.. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen had an excellent set of saucepans. It was good having two sitting rooms.
We Only stayed 3 nights but loved the jacuzzi.. Couldn't have been a better place to stay regards scenery and comfort. The cottage was clean and warm and well equipped for us and our 2 yr old granddaughter
A great place for an extended family holiday, lots of space for everybody and hot tub a real bonus..
Fantastic location and facilities.. The pictures do not do this property justice. Highly recommended.
Fantastic cottage, peaceful location, beautiful views.. Would definitely visit again.
If it was not for the midges [flyies] it would be perfect, next time we will go later in the year ,on the whole it was fantastic..
We had an excellent holiday.. The cottage has everything you need. Its very comfortable and the owners are very approachable and friendly.
The cottage is situated in beautiful countryside with just the sheep for company.
We were able to tour the whole of Snowdonia and we were never short of something to do.
A great holiday which we did not want to come to an end.
We felt very at home in Ty Mawr with beautiful surroundings and a very relaxing time was had by all. The hot tube was lovely. We went on some lovely walks and enjoyed being in the countryside. The cottage had everything we needed and was really clean and welcoming.
The cottage was everything you could ask for and the owners of the cottage were lovely and were at hand if you needed them. The hot tub was an added bonus and was lovely to relax in. I would highly recommend this cottage.
Ty Mawr is in a stunning location, with so much to do in the area. Spectacular scenery with great walking as well. Really nice friendly owner, who couldn't have been more helpful .We have been to many different parts of Wales but this was the best would highly recommend.
Loved the cottage, it was very cosy and had everything we needed and more. The hot tub was amazing and the setting was stunning. The owners were so friendly and helpful and we all felt right at home from the moment we arrived. We will absolutely be coming back here again.
We really appreciated the calmness and the beauty of the countryside. The cottage is perfect, you can easily feel at home. The owner is really kind.
Had a hot tub in the garden and real fires in the lounges. The owners were really friendly and helpful.
An amazing place, the owners were very helpful and welcoming, would recommend.
Overall a very comfortable, quiet and secluded house.
Lots of room, very spacious. Hot tub was brilliant!
Ideal for a quiet retreat away from everyone.
The house was furnished to a high standard and very comfortable. It had everything. Location was great with stunning views.
We spent a wonderful week as two families in this beautiful, tranquil location. The "cottage" is ideal with plenty of space for everyone - en suite bathrooom in one double room and spacious bathroom at the other end of the landing..
As well as the fantastic kitchen and dining room (complete with Rayburn!) there are two seperate lounges so it's possible for the kids to watch tv or play their board games whilst the adults sit in the other lounge - complete with an idyllic log burner - whiling away the wee hours!
We would thoroughly recommend the cottage as a perfect place to explore a beautiful part of Wales ... and the hot tub is just an added bonus to what is a lovely house.
A lovely cottage set in idyllic surroundings. A little get away that made us want to return.
The cottage had lovely spacious accommodation, with everything provided that you need when staying in self-catering. Very approachable and friendly owners. Loved looking out on to the fields every morning and seeing the farm animals. Great views and very peaceful, a real 'escape'. It was nice to be able to wander out straight from the cottage and take a stroll in the countryside.
Owners very helpful. High specification furniture but homely environment. Very pleased overall, and would book to go here again.
Mr Van Acker
It was a very quiet and beautiful place, with lots of walking possibilities.
The cottage was the perfect size for our family to spend time together. The garden was very pretty and the outdoor seating excellent.
Stayed with three generations of family and found the cottage perfectly suited, especially with the two separate lounge areas. The wood stove was cozy on chilly evenings, the outdoor space was lovely and we especially enjoyed trips to the creek and seeing our 'neighbors' the sheep and cows. Kitchen was well fitted and there was room to cook and serve dinner for seven. Perfect location for Bala Lake and the north and west coasts are accessible if you don't mind a drive. Great if you like a bit of room around you to spread out and be quiet.
This was a very welcoming cottage in an ideal location. The surroundings were stunning and the views from the cottages were just fantastic particularly on a sunny day.
We were away from the noise and bustle of normal life. The views and landscape were wonderful. We were close to everything we needed. The owners were very welcoming and generous with their time. The cottage was warm cosy and we felt at home right away.
We had a fantastic holiday. There was a Christmas tree with fairy lights, the fire was lit and in the kitchen, they had left us some welsh cakes, butter, milk and tea for when we arrived - very much appreciated. The walks were great and we would recommend it to anyone who loves the country way of life.
Great modern cottage in a tranquil location.
This was a perfect cozy house for a winter break with the log burner etc. There were 4 adults and 4 children in our party and we all had plenty of room. Unfortunately we had to cut our stay short but we would have loved to have stayed longer. I'm sure this house would be just as perfection the summer as it's surroundings are beautiful. The owners were great, very welcoming.
Lovely location, very clean property and very baby friendly.
Very kind owners! House with all the comfort that we needed. Fishing in the river and in the Bala lake was very successfull. Excellent location to visit Swondonia.
Very kind owners, wonderful place to go fishing on Bala Lake and it was a very quiet place to stay!
Location and quality of accommodation were perfect.
The location was beautiful and the house was a pleasure to come back to at the end of the day.
Superb property/accommodation. Suitable for the party size quoted. Very clean and decorated to a high standard. Warm and friendly welcome from the owner. Property in quiet location but central to all sites in North Wales. Would recommend and use again.
a lovely home nice location could do with more heating in the afternoon when you came home
A very nice holiday in a good, quiet location. The owners are very helpful and friendly.
It was a lovely and comfortable cottage with everything being home from home. The owners were very friendly and made us feel welcome. The area had good amenities for eating out and places to visit. A super holiday had by all. Would definitely recommend Ty Mawr.
