Dramatic views across Cardigan Bay to the distant mountain range of the Snowdonia National Park form an attractive backdrop for this idyllically located, spacious 18th-century house. Owned by the same family for many generations, it is comfortable and has been carefully maintained to offer a high standard of holiday accommodation, and stands amid its own mature, well-tended gardens with views over a man-made lake stocked with fish . Full of charm and character, it adjoins another property, yet is completely self-contained with a separate driveway. There is a small detached holiday cottage also within the grounds for two people to let by owners. Guests at Bwthyn Bach have access to the laundry in Ty Mawr

Distance to beach
Can be reached in 5 mins by car.
The sheltered southern coast of the Lleyn Peninsula harbours a wealth of sandy beaches and coves; the nearest being a mere ¾ mile away. Here a temperate climate offers excellent opportunities for outdoor activities; sailing, windsurfing and water-skiing facilities abound, and there are some beautiful walking paths along the shore. Some of Wales’ best beaches are to be found an easy drive away at the tip of the Peninsula; Abersoch and Aberdaron in particular offer wide sandy stretches popular with watersports enthusiasts. Just over a mile away, lies the coastal town of Criccieth, where there is a sandy beach at low tide and a 13th-century castle perched on a rocky headland. Across the bay the dramatically located Harlech Castle stands as another testament to more turbulent times. For shopping, good dining and a weekly street market, visit the bustling port town of Pwllheli (6 miles), while the holiday centre of Porthmadog has a wide range of facilities for rock climbing, riding, canoeing and fishing. From here it is an easy drive to visit the beautiful Italianate village of Portmeirion, with its forest walks, gardens and sandy beach. For a novel mode of transport along the coastline, hop aboard the Blaenau Ffestiniog Narrow-Gauge Railway, which still operates on a line first opened in 1836. Excellent walking and mountaineering locally. Five golf courses nearby (negotiated rates for local course). Horse riding nearby. Shops 1¼ miles.

The house was warm and had breath-taking views. Its close proximity to Criccieth and Porthmadog was very convenient as we went out of season. The kitchen was well-equipped, although we didn’t anticipate paying £1 for 20 mins of Tumble drier usage.
We would definitely stay there again.
Ty Mawr is in a good position, well away from the main road and with stunning views towards the mountains. It is accessible to Criccieth and to other parts of the Llyn peninsular where there is beautiful country and beaches.
There is a good restaurant on the square at Tremadog and we enjoyed a meal at the Union Inn opposite.
There were a couple of minor plumbing problems which have been reported to the owners but the cottage is well equipped generally.
The house was spacious with a well equipped kitchen. There were two sitting areas one with a television and the other was very large and comfortable. Most of the rooms looked out onto a pleasant garden at the front and wonderful views beyond. There were plenty of bathrooms although one shower was awkward to use.
Homely spacious cottage.
Well equipped kitchen.
Spacious hall – excellent for muddy walking boots and coats.
Central heating very efficient and plenty of hot water at all times.
Love the new family bathroom.
Great location for walk into Criccieth and visiting Portmerion and Snowdon.
