Minffordd Cottage Coastal Cottage description

Holiday home
Set in the quiet village of Llanegryn, this 19th Century end-terrace cottage is a stone-built property in the lovely Dysynni Valley. Situated in the Snowdonia region, where the mountains meet the sea, this charming holiday home offers a wonderful cottage atmosphere, seamlessly combined with modern facilities. Close by is the seaside town of Tywyn, the harbour village of Aberdovey and the Talyllyn Steam Railway – all of which provide visitors with a great day out – as well as the incredible Snowdonia National Park. Guests to this cosy cottage can also enjoy the region's excellent cycling, climbing, biking, bird watching, horse riding and golf facilities.

Located in the beautiful Dysynni Valley, Llanegryn is a small, quiet village set in the south of the Snowdonia National Park. Only four miles from the bustling coastal town of Tywyn, Llanegryn is well placed for anyone looking to enjoy the Talyllyn Narrow Gauge Steam Railway. This lovely little transport network boasts a seven mile track with runs through some of the most wonderful countryside in Britain, passing both the stunning Talyllyn Lake and the imposing Mount Cader Idris. Tywyn also boasts a long sandy beach: a favourite with families and water sport enthusiasts, especially surfers. Just four miles away is the lovely seaside village of Aberdovey which is renowned for sailing, sail-boarding, fishing, boat trips and an excellent 18-hole championship golf course.

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.

We had stayed in a Sykes Cottages propoerty previously, in Scotland, and were disappointed, but had no complaints about Minffordd. The setting, in a picturesque valley with Craig yr Aderyn on one side and Cadair Idris on the other, was perfect, The cottage is a well-renovated old end-of-terrace with lots of character, and good facilities. There is on-site parking for a single small car, and pets are allowed, and can wander around the garden (finding a sheep in the garden was a surprise one morning, though - hopefully the hole in the back fence is now fixed!) The local caretakers of the property were quick to respond when we reported a couple of problems, and the next door neighbours were very friendly too.As an added bonus, look out for the jam and cake stall a hundred metres down the road. The lack of a mobile phone signal or any data network at all was the only real disadvantage. Providing a little more information for new visitors is our only other improvement suggestion: it would be good if Sykes' compiled a standard list of things that renters like to know, and then each cottage could have its own version of this completed, courtesy of the caretakers, and left as a welcome for new renters. So, in summary, we would highly recommend this cottage.

The cottage had lovely exposed beams, very good living room furnishings, a lovely conservatory and was set in a nice peaceful location. There was also some nice local produce.

The area is one of the most beautiful in the UK. Within 10 minutes of the cottage you could be walking along side of a waterfall in Snowdonia, on a sandy beach or sitting in a beer garden with a stunning view over a lake with mountain views.

The cottage was fantastic, better than we expected. Lovely ambiance, well equipped, had everything that we needed. Snowdonia is also very beautiful, and despite the rain, there were so many things that we were able do. The ride on the steam train, the walks, the beaches, and the colours of the hills and meadows made more vibrant in the rain, waking up to the sounds of sheep baaing, doing things as a family, all give us happy memories that we will always treasure. We will certainly inform our friends and families of our experience and we hope to come back again.

The cottage was so comfortable that we were able to relax immediately. It was really cosy! Minffordd Cottage also had a delightful conservatory that we made a lot of use of and a pretty garden that we sat in a few times. All in all a great success and the standard of the cottage exceeded our expectations. Thank you!

The cottage is placed close to many attractions in Snowdonia including the beach. It is a very silent place to enjoy the nature. Even on rainy days the cottage has everything to feel comfortable. We (family with 3 children) had a great time there.

The property was in a beautiful area, great for walking. Don't miss a drink at Pen-y-Bont on B4405 at one end of the Lake! Great view!

Fantastic weather and cottage in perfect location for getting out and about on both beaches and mountains. The cottage garden (and swings) were great for the kids and lovely to sit out in for the adults.
