Tyn-y-fron Holiday Cottage Tyn-y-fron is a place to remember and return to. A cosy and sympathetic Barn Conversion with views over the Dee Valley and the hills beyond. Set on a hillside above the River Dee in the Vale of Ederynion, the eastern gateway to Snowdonia National Park, this little cottage, comfortably furnished, has been converted from an ancient barn to a quiet and warm retreat to unwind from the world. Everything you could wish for. Cosy, warm and welcoming. Lovely lounge with wonderful outlook over the distant mountains and amazingly quiet. Fully equipped modern galley kitchen and bathroom.Private water supply. Access to bedroom by spiral stairs. From the roof light in the bedroom you can see for miles into the valley and the hills beyond. However you like it.

Set on a hillside above the River Dee in the Vale of Ederynion, the eastern gateway to Snowdonia National Park, this little cottage, comfortably furnished, has been converted from an ancient barn to a quiet and warm retreat to unwind from the world. Everything you could wish for. Cosy, warm and welcoming. Lovely lounge with wonderful outlook over the distant mountains and amazingly quiet. Fully equipped modern galley kitchen and bathroom.Private water supply. Access to bedroom by spiral stairs. From the roof light in the bedroom you can see for miles into the valley and the hills beyond. However you like it. It doesn't really matter what you like to do on your holidays. Tyn-y-fron wraps itself around you like a warm blanket and lets you be yourself. Laze away your days with a bottle of wine either on the sheltered veranda or tucked up by the lounge window losing yourself in the view. Watch the mountains, the sheep, the sky. Feel the silence. Maybe you prefer to put on your boots and walk the amazing hills, or go sailing on Bala Lake, or maybe white water rafting just for the fun of it. Or hire a mountain bike and see how fit you are. Maybe walk your dogs along the lakeside. Some people bring their instruments and play away the week. After all there is no-one for you to disturb. Some catch up on the books they have been promising themselves for ever. It doesn't matter what you do, Tyn-y-fron will look after you when you are at rest and welcome you back after a days adventure. Our visitor book is testimony to the magic that this little cottage seems to have. We have had engagements here, marriages, honeymoons, birthdays and even first baby announcements. On one memorable occasion we nearly had the first baby!!! Come to Tyn-y-fron and share the magic. We can guarantee that you will want to return. More
