About David and Gillian Tomkins

Ty'n Y Clawdd, holiday cottage, is fully managed and maintained by myself, Gill Tomkins and my husband David. We love the Barmouth area, the friendly people, the stunning scenery and all the relaxing pleasures this area has to offer. As a family, this area has been treasured by us for over 50 years, with wonderful memories collected. We provide a warm welcoming home at Ty'n Y Clawdd, to all of our visitors, you will return home relaxed with your own memories to share.

David and Gillian Tomkins purchased this house in 2004

Why David and Gillian Tomkins chose Dyffryn Ardudwy

For many years we have enjoyed coming to this area, and we decided we would love to buy a property with some land and create a lovely holiday home with a big garden for our family to enjoy.

We did, and for 2 years we worked with local tradesmen and architect and made the cottage into what it is today. Fully renovated, all mod cons, bright, airy, clean and very homely, log fire,.....with a great big garden to run and play in.

The cottage is halfway between Barmouth and Harlech, in Dyffryn Ardudwy, the beach is half a mile away, 11 miles of golden sand......shops, pubs, restaurants all within easy reach.

What makes this house unique

We have a small paddock at the back of the house, great for kids to play or for sitting admiring the views across fields towards the sand dunes and the sea. We have a BBQ, a patio area, an undercover seating area, a sandpit for the kiddies. We have outside kennels for dogs, free to use, if you wish to keep your dogs outside.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was great to back at cottage again, which as before was immaculate and welcoming. A new addition for us, most useful, was the secure cycle storage. We had a good week weather wise. We relaxed in the lovely garden for a whole day with our 2 dogs. All in all another relaxing break in this lovely cottage. We are so looking forward to returning next year, hopefully for 2 weeks.

Fantastic property with amazing beaches

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic property that offers flexible accommodation. The addition of the hot tub was a welcome relaxation in the evening following our days spent by the beautiful beaches. The Garden is family friendly and there are well equipped kennels for more than one dog. Great location to all amenities. A little gem.
