Great Time in Wales!

  • 5 of 5

My family had an amazing time staying at Tymawr in Tywyn, Wales. The house was perfect for our large extended family. The dining room table was great as all of us could gather for nightly meals. The front lawn was perfect for badminton, volleyball, and wiffleball. The town and the beach were both in walking distance. We were able to take advantage of the wonderful activities in the surrounding area as well including: golf, walking in the hills, riding the narrow guage railway up the mountain, visits to castles and castle ruins, sailing, pony trekking....the list is endless. I would highly recommend a family holiday in Wales at Tymawr.

Owner's Response: Hi Molly - we're so glad you and your family enjoyed staying at Ty Mawr. Quite a trek from Albany but sounds like it was worth it! Hope you'll come again soon!

Ty Mawr - Tywyn - July 2010 - eleventh visit

  • 4 of 5

An ideal house for a large group with many improvements and enhancements over the eleven years. Situation is lovely with view down to sea. Excellent in evening sun in good weather. Flat lawn good for boules and croquet.

Caretakers extremely friendly and helpful and the house is always very clean and well ordered.

A beautiful area of the country and if the weather is reasonable cannot be beaten.

Favorites are:beach between Aberdovey and Tywyn; Tal-y-llyn; walks along river to Bailey Bridge; above Dolgoch and Rhydyrhonen; river to Abergynolwyn; Castell-y-Bere and Aberdovey itself (crabbing).

Trains and swimming pool good for wet weather.

Owner's Response: We're so glad to know that you appreciate the improvements and will continue to do so as much as possible. It's great to hear what people do and see when they're at Ty Mawr and next time we're there we will try out the walk to Bailey Bridge as we've never done it - thank you! Looking forward to having you stay again next year!

Location

From the Owner

The house retains much of the character from a bygone era and there many very old family photos showing what life was like many years ago. It also has all the 'mod cons' with large rooms to accomodate large parties etc

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Manchester , Birmingham Liverpool at 100 Miles Nearest Barpub : Tywyn at 0.25 Miles Nearest Golf : Aberdyfi at 4 Miles Nearest Train : Tywywn at 0.25 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Aberdyfi at 4 Miles Nearest Beach : Tywyn at 0.5 Miles Car: recommended

The Snowdonia national park includes the second highest mountain in Britain as well as miles of uncrowded sandy beaches. There is abundant wildlife, and sporting activities include swimming, surfing, fishing, golf, shooting, climbing and sailing. Rich in history the area includes some of Britain's most scenic medieval castles within an hour's drive. The nearby village of Aberdovey retains a traditional charm, and friendliness, set at the mouth of the Dovey river and looking west across Cardigan Bay towards Ireland. It has several pubs, an award winning hotel-restaurant as well as a range of shops for all needs. Visitors can enjoy public tennis courts, a links golf course, sailing club, fishing expeditions from the jetty and riverboat tours.

Golf: Golf Courses?Situated between the coastal dunes of Aberdovey beach and the Cambrian Mountains lies Aberdovey golf course.  This 6,454 yard challenge is a hidden gem of a traditional seaside links course.  Over the years the Club's 18 holes, which are steeped in over 100 years of golfing history, have hosted many championships including more recently the British Ladies' Home Internationals and the regular home of the Welsh Seniors' Championship.

The county of Gwynedd boasts 3 of the Top 100 courses in the UK: An hour North from Aberdovey by road finds the excellent Championship links of Royal St David's in Harlech. A further 45 minutes from there brings you to Nefyn & District Golf Club.

When Aberdovey and these courses are combined with the three further charming courses at Abersoch, Porthmadog and Pwllheli, there are clearly abundant opportunities for golfers to enjoy differing challenges in a variety of locations.

Notes:

  • Much of the original antique furniture and fittings remain, giving it a character all of its own. The house was bought by my great-grandfather in 1870 and has been in the family since that Victorian era.
