The Granary Family Cottage description

Holiday home
The Granary is a semi-detached cottage in a courtyard next to the owners' home a few minute's walk from the shores of Tal-y-Llyn Lake. There is a king-size double bedroom with an en-suite shower room (this room can be offered as a twin if required), and a family room with three single beds and an en-suite bathroom. There is also a kitchen with Belfast sink,and a sitting room with woodburning stove and dining area. Outside, there is off road parking for two cars, and a courtyard garden with furniture. The Granary is an ideal base for family or friends, to head into the mountains or relax by the lake, spectacular throughout the year.

Set in the peaceful foothills of the Cader Idris mountain range is the tiny hamlet of Tal y Llyn. Situated on the shores of the lake that it shares its name, this little settlement is an ideal place for walkers, cyclists and fishing enthusiasts as well as nature lovers and bird watchers. The Tal y Llyn narrow gauge railway is also very close by whilst slightly further a field is the historic town of Dolgellau and the renowned seaside resort of Towyn. These two larger settlements offer a variety of good shops, pubs and restaurants, although if you prefer open spaces, the beach at Barmouth is definitely the place to go and has been awarded a blue flag. With such spectacular scenery, this wonderful region has no shortage of places to see and things to do.

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 apartment was a splendid property with the most amazing antiques. The surroundings were beautiful and the owners were welcoming but left us alone to enjoy our stay. This is a wonderful place to stay. Don't miss out.

Beautiful cottage located in a peaceful country side, overlooking the mountains with feeding sheep. Views are just fantastic with running stream along side of the road, and a distant lake which is about 45 minutes walk. Dolgoch falls is about 4 miles, King Arthur's Labyrinths in Corris is also 4 miles and the beaches are about 10 miles. The location of the cottage is excellent as all these can be easily reached by car.

The very friendly, helpful owners of the property. They were there for any help we needed and gave us very good advice about the local amenities. The cottage was an excellent base for touring the region and a very cosy warm home to return to.

We have just returned from our stay at The Granary and could not have been more delighted with the accommodation. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful and the cottage itself was fully equipped with every mod con we needed yet still retained an oldy worldy feel. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the location is perfect for exploring this beautiful area. We finished up getting through two dozen of the resident chickens' eggs between 3 of us and a sack of kindle and logs (also supplied at a small cost) made for a roaring fire in the evening. Bringing a teenager to an area where there is little phone signal and no wifi is always a gamble but one that paid off when he told us it was one of the most enjoyable holidays he's ever had. Do take stout walking shoes, water bottles and a rucksack and climb nearby Cadair Idris. The feeling of achievement at the summit is something that will stay with me forever. Many, many thanks to Clive and Janice (owners) for making our stay in this idylic part of the world so memorable.

Fabulous scenery and a very comfortable base for our holiday. The cottage was just right for us, with enough space, and was well equipped - particularly the kitchen. It was also useful to have the owners living alongside - they were very friendly and helpful, and could provide good information and tips about the local area.

The granary is nestled between hills and mountains just a few minutes walk from a lake. The cottage itself is very cosy with a wood burner, books and games to play and TV too. The kitchen has everything you may need for self catering. We took along 3 girls (two teenagers and an 11 year old) who all shared the second bedroom. They loved it. There was plenty of room for them and they had their own bathroom. The master bedroom has a huge bed and loads of storage space, plus an ensuite. There is ample car parking too. The owners are friendly and knowledgeable about the area and can supply you with fresh eggs from their chickens! I would definitely go back, in fact I'm missing it already.

The location was amazing and the property had been converted to a very high standard. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating and the most amazing free range eggs were available to buy.

The service received was very friendly and the owners were on hand for local tips of where to go and see. The cottage was very cosy and decorated to a high standard with lots of character. The location on the cottage makes it very easy to explore the rest of southern Snowdonia. Tal y Lyn lake just a short walk across the owners land. Stunning and peaceful.
