This detached farmhouse, with lovely views towards Cadair Idris, is in a quiet, private location at the end of a short lane, on the edge of the village of Brithdir, 3.5 miles east of Dolgellau. Tyn Gaer is a traditional farmhouse, which retains much character with beamed ceilings, slate flooring, grandfather clocks and Welsh dressers, but also benefits from contemporary kitchen and bathrooms.
The farmhouse comprises a beamed sitting room with a woodburning stove in the inglenook fireplace (logs provided), TV with Sky, video and DVD players, fitted kitchen including a washing machine, fridge/feezer and slim dishwasher, and a traditional dining room. Upstairs are three bedrooms (a double with en suite shower room, second double bedroom and a twin) and a family bathroom. There is also a ground floor cloakroom off the rear porch. There is oil-fired central heating throughout and WiFi is available. The enclosed garden to the rear, with garden furniture and brick built barbecue, has views of Cadair Idris. Guests have access to 35 acres of the owners' hill farm, with woodland walks, and salmon and trout fishing on the River Wnion.
Dolgellau, 3.5 miles away, has a range of shops, pubs and eating places, small supermarket and theatre, weekly market and regular Farmer's Market. This is an excellent location for walking, mountain biking at nearby Coed y Brenin, and for touring the many sights of the south Snowdonia National Park and coastline.

Quiet location in lovely countryside.Dr Betts - 22nd August 2016
We just spent a week and it was fantastic! A remote place with a lovely little garden with stunning views of Cadair Idris, with the sound of sheep and birds in the background. There were some lovely little Welsh goodies waiting for us, which was a very nice welcome. Our kids, age 8 and 11, and we enjoyed the scramble up Cadair Idris, the Precipice and Torrent Walks and the beach in Barmouth. My husband loved the mountain bike trails at Coed Y Brenin, which also offers lovely walks and trail runs. Thank you for a perfect holiday!Mrs Roggendorf - 21st August 2016
A superb home from home the farm house we rented was everything we wanted both internally and externally. The house was lovingly preserved, spotless and comfortable in a stunning rural setting. The views from the property were amazing and my dog loved being so close to the sheep in the next field. The area is absolutely stunning with mountains, waterfalls and fields to explore and just a few miles away is the small town Dolgellau with local shops, pubs and restaurants. We were met by the owner, were made to feel very welcome and were allowed total privacy.Mrs Greenaway - 3rd August 2016
I loved my week in the house. It is so peaceful. I could have happily stayed longer. The birds and bird feeders gave immense entertainment too.Dr Flack - 4th July 2016

We loved our holiday home, felt like a real home because it had all we needed. The service of the Wales Holidays Team was just fine, and the local area is beautiful with the mountains and lakes and beaches, every day you get a totally different holiday feeling, a day at the beach, a day driving in the mountains, a day shopping, and so on.Ms Jansen - 12th October 2015
We will be back!Mrs Thomas - 6th October 2015
The cottage came up to more than our expectations, with a surprise welcome inside the fridge. Mrs Thomas had gone to great lengths to provide a fully equipped kitchen, with more content than we have experienced before. This really was an excellent cottage in every way, and we couldn't fault it, and would highly recommend it.Miss Lowe - 9th September 2015
This was the fourth time we have stayed at this cottage. as far as I'm concerned it's perfect. head of the valley, lovely views and peace and quiet, apart from the jets!!! Actually we all love them as well.Mr Robinson - 24th August 2015
It was a lovely property, which we would definitely recommend to others.Ms Hitchen - 22nd July 2015

The perfect cottage, set in beautiful countryside, an idyllic getaway. A friendly and helpful service too.Ms Firth - 29th April 2015
