    “Ty Coch is a wonderful cottage which is welcoming, well equipped and comfortable.”

    Also we found it spotlessly clean. The garden is absolutely magical! Great for relaxing in and for children to explore. The waterfall at the edge of the garden was lovely too. We would highly recommend this cottage

The property

What a delightful holiday cottage Ty Coch is!

Located in the stunning Snowdonia National Park, this pretty stone cottage certainly has kerb appeal.

Standing alone in an acre of gardens which are beautifully landscaped, the stream tinkles down alongside the house from the National Trust oak woodland past the cottage. Sitting in an area of designated special scientific interest, you can access the woodland from the grounds and the fields in front - perfect for relaxing days when you want to leave the car on the drive.

Once belonging to the head gardener for Plas Tan Y Bwlch, you can expect to see a variety of beautiful flowers around Ty Coch - including impressive azaleas and rhododendrons! "What a pretty cottage!

Plenty of parking, quiet location, close to a good pub, beautiful gardens....what more could you need?" Wander from the cottage to the Oakley Arms for a lovely lunch or evening meal, or head out to explore some of the beautiful walks on offer in and around Maentwrog.

There are so many attractions & things to do with a short drive including The Italianate Village of Portmeirion, steam trains galore or shopping on the High Street in Porthmadog. Just a short drive from Ty Coch is Harlech with its vast expanse of golden beaches and imposing castle.

A little further again to the picturesque village of Llanbedr, (you must visit the Victoria Pub), & Shell Island.

For a different day out, you might even fancy heading over to Barmouth for the day where you might catch the donkeys on the beach or take a spin on the waltzers.

About the location

MAENTWROG

Tan y Bwlch 0.5 miles; Blaenau Ffestiniog 3 miles; Penrhyndeudraeth 4 miles; Porthmadog 7 miles.

Maentwrog is a village and community in the Welsh county of Gwynedd, lying in the Vale of Ffestiniog just below Blaenau Ffestiniog, within the Snowdonia National Park. The River Dwyryd runs alongside the village, on the periphery and adds to the picturesque environment. The village has its own highly regarded traditional inn, the Grapes Hotel, well known for its food and atmosphere and the Oakeley Arms is also nearby. The scenic area around Maentwrog has many public footpaths plus the beauty spot of Plas Tan Y Bwlch and the Ffestiniog Steam Railway are also within a few miles. Nearby Plas Tan y Bwlch, substantially rebuilt during the 19th century by the Oakeley family on the site of a first house probably built in the early 17th century, overlooks the village. Plas Tan y Bwlch has its own halt - Plas Halt - on the Ffestiniog Railway, and nearby Tan-y-Bwlch railway station is the railway's principal intermediate station. Maentwrog means Twrog's stone and according to legend, a giant known as Twrog hurled a boulder from the top of a hill down into the settlement, destroying a pagan altar. This stone is said to be the one located in St Twrog's Church courtyard. It is said that if one rubs this boulder one is fated to return to the village in the future. The village settlement expanded in the 19th century to house workers from local slate mines. Within the village community is the imposing Plas Tan y Bwlch, home of the Snowdonia National Park Study Centre and former residence of the Oakeley family. A superb base from which to discover the Snowdonia National Park and all of North Wales.

Note: The cottage has its own natural water supply from a borehole. This is perfectly safe to drink but some people may prefer to bring their own drinking water. The mobile phone signal is average. The best signal is by the kitchen window.
