Dating back to the C17th, 3 Tyn Llan is a semi-detached stone cottage just outside the village of Dyffryn Ardudwy. This is less than a mile from the huge sandy beach of Morfa Dyffryn, well within walking distance, and is also within the Snowdonia National Park. Both the historic town of Harlech and the beach resort of Barmouth are around 6 miles away.

'make the most of the nearby scenic railway to explore the area, or go for one way walks or cycle rides and get the train back!' from Jacky, our local property manager

The Cottage: offers light, airy and very pleasant accommodation, with an open-plan ground floor with a spiral staircase (not suitable for young children or the infirm) leading to the first floor. This is a quiet location with lovely views from the sunny patio area. Electric heating.

Outside: to the rear is a large enclosed patio garden backing on to fields, a sun trap with garden furniture and barbecue. Parking for one car.

The local pub, shop, and station on the coastal railway line are within walking distance. Tyn Llan is ideally placed to explore the area.  A short walk takes you to the beach and endless sands of this coastline. Harlech Castle is stunning, and the surrounding village has some great independent shops and cafes.  Barmouth has many shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants and several popular ice cream parlours! Boat and fishing trips can be taken from the harbour to watch seals and dolphins. The trail up the Mawddach estuary is superb for cycling or walking. The coastal railway offers a scenic way of getting around this part of Wales. The mountains and adventure activities of Snowdonia are a short drive away.


Electricity and storage heating included

The cottage was lovely and met all our needs. It was cosy and well equipped. It’s 10 minutes walk from a lovely beach. The town of Barmouth is 10 minutes away where there are lots of lovely pubs and restaurants. Had a very enjoyable holiday.

Mrs B,


7 things to do from on the Cambrian coastline, Dyffryn Ardudwy, Harlech and Barmouth

1 – Summer or winter the vast sandy beaches along this section of the coastline are always stunning. The view from the road above can simply take your breath away as you look down across the sands to the distant mountains of Snowdonia beyond.

2-  Take a scenic journey on the Cambrian Coast main line railway, lovely in either direction, or walk sections of the coastline and get the train back. There’s a station at Dyffryn Ardudwy, Harlech and Barmouth

3- Cycle a section of Lon Las Cymru (Route 8), a long-distance cycle way stretching from Holyhead the length of Wales to Cardiff. Beware of the section in the hills behind Harlech though, its on very seep lanes!

4- A visit to Harlech and its castle is a must. The castle is looked after by CADW and there are events on throughout the year. The village itself has some lovely cafes, my favourites are Llew Glas and Harlech Castle café, both serving delicious homemade food.

5- The Rhinog mountains behind the coast are known as one of the last remaining wilderness areas in Britain. One of the more popular walks is up the ‘Roman Steps’ from Cwm Bychan. Another is a visit to the Nantcol river and waterfalls, great for swimming if the weather is warm.

6-  Barmouth is a thriving seaside resort with a vintage seaside atmosphere of candyfloss, ice creams and donkey rides. The beach is great, there’s a small fun fair during the summer, and the town itself has plenty of independent shops, cafes and restaurants. Boat trips and canoe and SUP hire can also be arranged here.

7- Within an hour drive you can visit many of the most popular attractions of north Wales; including Portmeirion Italianate village, the West Highland and Ffestiniog steam Railway, Zip World zip wires and Bounce Below underground trampolines at Blaenau Ffestiniog and the mountains of Snowdonia for walks or the train up Snowdon itself.
