Ty Gwair is a detached, recently converted barn, with a Hot Tub in a fabulous position with great views of the stunning mountains of Snowdonia and nearby Zip World Velocity zip wire. This is a good location for those wanting to explore the mountains or coastline of north Wales, right on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park and just 8 miles from Anglesey. The local village of Bethesda is one mile away for shops, cafes and pubs, 9 miles to Llanberis for Snowdon, 6 miles to the university city of Bangor, and 17 miles to Conwy.
‘a visit to the National Trusts’ Ogwen Cottage is a must. Located in stunning spot between two mountain ranges alongside Llyn Ogwen, the scenery is magnificent! Take a walk up to Wales’ first National Nature Reserve at Cwm Idwal, a relatively easy hike, and enjoy the surroundings’ from Jacky, our property manager
The Cottage: has lovely owners who live just up the road and are on hand for a wealth of local information. It boasts a hot tub with fabulous mountain views and the property benefits from a ground floor double bedroom with shower cubicle, and adjacent cloakroom so ideal for less able family members. Heating throughout is by underfloor heating using a ground source heat pump and additional solar panels.
The Living Dining Room: this open plan room has leather style sofas, a flat screen TV with a basic Sky package/DVD and WiFi, dining table and chairs. The beautiful Welsh slate floor tiles were originally intended for Cardiff Millennium Centre!
The Conservatory: joins on to the living dining room and provides a comfortable area to relax and enjoy the stunning views of Snowdonia. Furnished with simple conservatory furniture.
The Kitchen: is a fitted kitchen and has a washing machine, dishwasher, large fridge/freezer, microwave and electric hob and oven.
There are three bedrooms, one on the ground floor, the other two reached from the entrance hall via a hand crafted wooden staircase to the second floor.
Bedroom 1: is on the ground floor and has a double bed. There is a convenient shower cubicle in the room and a cloakroom with WC and basin in an adjacent room. This room is ideal for less able guests but equally suitable for any family member.
Bedroom 2: is a spacious double leading from the light and airy landing. The views from this room are truly stunning and it has a smart ensuite shower room with WC and basin.
Bedroom 3: is a triple with three full sized single beds.
Bathrooms: as well as the en suite shower room and ground floor cloakroom there is a family bathroom on the first floor.
Outside: is a lawned area and patio with table and chairs, a 7 seater hot tub just outside the conservatory also an open shed suitable for bike storage. Plenty of private parking available.
The superb Lon Las cycleway is about 500m away from the property and runs right down from the stunning Ogwen valley to Bangor through mountains, past rivers and through the historic slate quarries, not to be missed by bike or on foot. The river Ogwen has many pools suitable for swimming should the weather be kind, or the guests be brave. Then of course there is the world-famous Zip World Velocity zip wire, just a short walk from your front door. For more relaxing activities the National Trust's Penrhyn Castle is around 3 miles away and the city of Bangor has a leisure centre and popular new arts centre called Pontio, and a great cafe tucked away in the main town called Blue Sky where you can cosy up in front of the log burner and enjoy fantastic homemade local produce.
Note: The hot tub is a lay-Z-spa Monaco type and is inflatable with rigid sides

Very nice for children! the winter garden is awesome.Dr Alexandra Hofmann-Strähle - 7th June 2018
The owners Dave and Val were great in helping us find the cottage as it was dark and raining when we arrived. They also talked with our grandchildren and explained about the area. The cottage and the land around it were setup to be child friendly and fun for our three grandsons. We visited several castles and went on a train ride near a slate museum. Our Wales experience was terrific. Mr Paul A. Watts - 30th October 2017
Helpful owners. Brought candles during power cutMr Stephen Byard - 23rd October 2017

Absolutely cannot fault this place or the owners. Wonderful welcome basket of essentials locally produced, incredibly homely and and warm, would absolutely stay here again....and again. I was very sad to leave! Mrs Kirsty Phillips - 12th July 2017
Ty Gwair hugely exceeded our expectations. Beautiful location, cottage. The small touches such as bread and eggs go a long way. Cannot wait to come again. We can't fault this place one bit!Mrs Phillips - 10th July 2017
The property is a pleasure to be in, the views from the conservatory towards the mountains a lovely and stunning surprise. Lovely in the evening as well, particularly when the sun is setting, the colours changing minute by minute. Just perfect to sit there with a bottle of wine and friends. The place itself and the friendly atmosphere you have created is a credit to you both, and we would love to stay here again in the future.Prof. Partington - 1st July 2017
Thank you so much for your hospitality. Ty Gwair is stunning, in a perfect location, and without a doubt exceeded our expectations. The boys loved the local walks you provided, and also the games and toys. We particularly loved the pigeon board game! The enormous crocodile was a bedtime favourite. We cannot wait to come back.Mr Doggett - 3rd June 2017
