Charming 5 Star Split Level 2 Storey Cottage With Sea Views And Rural Landscape



Updated: 29-Nov-2016
3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Cottage in Pentrefelin, Nr. Criccieth, Wales - Close To The Stunning Llyn Peninsular Beaches

Tyn Llech is a lovingly restored 5 Star graded 17th Century two storey stone cottage nestling amongst ancient oak woodlands on a private 2000 acre country estate on the edge of Snowdonia. Originally two farm cottages, this charming house was designed by the Williams-Ellis family (Portmeirion) who have ensured that the renovations were in harmony with the surroundings. With its limed oak flooring, wood burning stove and pastel colours, whether you are looking for a romantic retreat or a family holiday, Tyn Llech won't disappoint. There are stunning views right across the Llyn Peninsular from both inside the house and from the pretty lawned gardens.

This is a top cottage in a fabulous location. Highlights for us – beautiful walks in the hills above Harlech. Visiting the Glaswyn Osprey Project and dinner at Castell Deudrath at Portmeirion. Marvellous views. Thank you.

We had a truly wonderful holiday at Tyn Llech. It is such a beautiful cottage that I could have cried when I left. I would love to think that we will return again.

As you predicted, we had a wonderful stay in Tyn Llech. The cottage is ideal in every aspect from it’s location, character, renovation and attention to detail. We delighted in discovering all the things the cottage offered.

What a fantastic cottage. Waking up to sea views. The cottage is warm and cosy, especially with the log burner. The welcome pack was delicious. What a wonderful welcome! All in all a fantastic holiday and we shall be back.

I am not surprised that people are returning time and time again – they are super cottages guests are so well looked after.

Second time in Tyn Llech

  • 5 of 5

Wir, eine kleine Reisegruppe mit 2 Ehepaaren und 1 Dame, waren nun schon zum 2.Mal in diesem wundervollen Cottage, dass von Vivian hingebungsvoll betreut wird. Jedes Jahr fährt unsere Reisgruppe für eine Woche in ein Ferienhaus. Dazu kommen noch die An- und Abreisetage. Wir lieben auch die Vielfältigkeit von Snowdonia. Dank an die Eigentümerin Tamar. Wir finden dieses Cottage und Snowdonia besser als Cornwall und die Toscana.

Special interest holidays:

This is the ideal base for exploring the mountains and beaches of Snowdonia. The pretty seaside town of Criccieth (with it's splendid castle) is close by, as is the marina at Porthmadog. The Italiante Village of Portmeirion (which was designed by the owner's great uncle - Clough Williams-Ellis) is a short drive away.


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 it's West Highland Railway and the legendary Snowdon Mountain Railway is close by.

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