Why Tamar Ferguson chose Porthmadog

This adorable stone cottage has been renovated in harmony with its surroundings. Step into a living room with full height ceilings, oak limed floors and beams, sweet, simple and well-equipped . A fabulous welcome pack on the table: home made cake and jam, coffee and tea, biscuits and juice. Modern sofas heaped with cushions face a wood-burning stove, logs courtesy of the surrounding estate and blue-painted French windows open the patio with a barbecue and canvas chairs. The sea views are spectacular. This is a beautiful cottage where colours are serene, fabrics are fresh, and prints, paintings and furniture (antique and new) add both character and style. The yellow room with delightful window seat looking across the fields. The pink room with singles which can be zipped together has a fantastic en-suite. The green room with twin beds is perfect for children. Groups can spill over into the manor house or neighbouring cottage. There's Criccieth for castle and sands, Harlech for history, and glorious walks up in the hills.

What makes this cottage unique

So many of our guests come back year after year "we couldn't imagine staying anywhere else" "the beds were divine" "The cottage has everything you could ever want and more, its a really beautiful place".

You feel that you have the whole of the private Wern Estate to yourselves - wander up the lanes and enjoy the tranquility. Catch the local bus into Criccieth and enjoy a meal at the many restaurants. The list is endless....just come and see for yourselves!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a lovely time thanks! We found the cottage very comfortable, luxurious and romantic. The attention spent on every detail and the general quality of everything in the cottage made it feel very special (from the under floor heating to the artwork on the walls, from the books on the shelf to the kitchen utensils....everything really!!). And its a great location for getting away from everything and exploring Snowdonia/North Wales.

Just to let you know that we have had a wonderful time at Hebog Bach. The property is gorgeous and everything that we could have wanted. I never thought of work once! We all feel so relaxed. The property was pristine in every way. The sheep and lambs around the property made the children's day!

We have loved everything. The furniture, the linen, the decor, the lighting and the excellent quality of fixtures and fittings. They have all been truly appreciated. We have had a wonderful holiday and are very sad to be going.

Excellent cottage in superb location

Better than described! Certainly 5 star in all aspects and with the benefits of home from home comfort. Ideal for families - well equipped and located. Welcome and housekeeping were superb.

A most fabulous weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place. The cottage was beautiful, the views stunning. Perfectly situated for the coast and the hills. The housekeeper was lovely and welcoming. A "welcome pack" awaited us with the essentials (and some goodies) for breakfast, a lot of which were home made. The beds and linen were so luxurious I could have slept for a week. I will definitely visit again.

Owner's Response: We are delighted that you enjoyed Tyn Llech - it is hard to show on a website the charm of the cottage and surroundings. Do come back again and enjoy your return guest discount. Tamar

Special interest holidays:

This is the ideal base for exploring the mountains and beaches of Snowdonia. The quirky Italiante Village of Portmeirion (which was designed by the owner's great uncle - Clough Williams-Ellis) is a short drive away. The Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railway line has now opened between Porthmadog and Caernarfon.


Black Rock Beach with it's huge sandy bay is a 5 minute drive away. The stunning beaches of the Llyn Peninsular are on your doorstep. Criccieth with it's sandy beach and wonderful castle is only a few minutes away, as is the harbour at Porthmadog. Abersoch and Harlech are within easy reach.


The nearest airports are Liverpool and Manchester. The nearest ferry port is at Holyhead on the island of Anglesey.


Caernarfon castle is well worth a day's visit. Llanberis with legendary Snowdon Mountain Railway is only a short drive away.

Further Details:

Included in the cost is a "Taste of Wales" Welcome Pack - home made jams and bara brith cake (made by our lovely housekeeper). We are happy to order a breakfast hamper with bacon, sausages and free range eggs from our local butcher.

Criccieth has plenty of independent shops and Porthmadog has a large Tesco.

We supply a basket of logs for the wood burner (cut from our own woods) and a bag of charcoal for the BBQ.
