Gwern Tyno description

Holiday home
Gwern Tyno is a detached bungalow, close to the owner's farm house in the Nant-y-Glyn Valley just a short drive from Colwyn Bay on the North Wales coast. With one double and one twin bedroom as well as a family bathroom, this cottage can sleep four people. The cottage also contains a fitted kitchen and a sitting room with a dining area and patio doors. To the outside of the cottage is the use of a large garden and plenty of off road parking. Just a couple of miles from the beach, yet just a short distance from the Welsh mountains, Gwern Tyno is a lovely holiday cottage no matter what you plan to do on your holiday.

Colwyn Bay offers the best of the North Wales countryside and coastline. As a base from which to explore all that the region has to offer, this seaside town is an attraction in itself but is also within easy access of many of North Wales' hidden gems such as the Mountain Zoo, the prestigious Theatr Clwyd and a number of stunning National Trust properties. The town itself is well-served by great shopping facilities and, for those who like a bit of outdoor adventure, there are ample opportunities for fishing, sailing and jet-skiing. The beaches in the area are undergoing constant improvement and some have achieved awards for their cleanliness and presentation.

Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.

The cottage is in a really quiet location yet within easy distance of all the attractions this part of North Wales has to offer. The views from the cottage were lovely and it was very pleasant to sit and eat breakfast outdoors whilst looking at the view.

This was the perfect retreat for a young family. The property was immaculately clean and well presented, with a swing and a slide in the garden that the children could play on. Perfectly located for all local amenities like Park Erias, the beautiful beaches, Welsh Mountain Zoo, plus only a stones throw from Llandudno. We will definitely visit again!

Mr Scattergood

Great Holiday again, very good situation for exploring North Wales. Very quiet location in Colwyn Bay with lovely views, but not too far from shops. Very nice owners , would recommend to anyone needing to get away from it all. Excellent for wildlife, especially birds.

Mr Barr

An ideal location for touring area but if you have young children or teenagers nothing for them to do and its too far for them to walk at night to the town. Taxi service is good and reasonable. The Farmers market on Thursdays although limited was very good and good value.

Cottage ideal for David's holiday very rural location 5 minutes drive from Colwyn Bay. Cottage spotless can't. Praise property enough
October 2015
Our stay here exceeded our expectations. It is a comfortable, well furnished, modernized, small cottage, adjacent to the owner's house. We walked the local footpaths and country roads, enjoyed the challenge of driving the narrow road out of Colwyn Bay, read books and generally relaxed. The owner was very helpful and we plan on staying there again on our next trip to the area.

The photos on the internet are seriously misleading, the owners home isn't just 'close to' the cottage, it's on top of it, owners have a direct view in through the kitchen window. Kitchen floor covered in slug trails; nasty! Tried to contact owner on two numbers but no answer even though we were expected. We had had a long drive, were tired and upset so we went to Llandudno for the night and drove home the next morning. Worst non-holiday ever, wish we'd stayed at home.
December 2012
The cottage has everything you might need, and children are very welcome. It lovely and quiet area and the views are fantastic it's just a short drive to the town and sea front.
November 2010
Th cottage was lovely and the owner couldn't have been more charming and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our week here and would highly recommend it . A rural setting but within a short drive of all amenities.
November 2010
A lovely cottage in a beautiful spot, with very friendly and helpful owners. It is just a shame it is over half a mile up a steep and very winding single track road, which was blocked one day by sheep, and the next day by a lorry collecting logs which held us back from our day out by half an hour each time. If it were more accessible, or we were more used to reversing down hills and around bends, we would definitely return.
