About Paul Bailey

Hello, I'm Paul Bailey, husband of Sara and dad to Hannah and James. As a former outdoor education teacher I have always loved Wales with all it has to offer in the natural environment and the activities available. We frequently visit here for the canoe racing at Canolfan Tryweryn.

Paul Bailey purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Paul Bailey chose Llanuwchllyn

The opportunity which arose to acquire a lovely traditional stone cottage gave me a project to renovate it to a standard which I'm sure you'll enjoy. The easy access through stunning scenery, quaintness of the cottage ,ideal location and the extra bonus of an excellent pub/restaurant next door makes it a winner. We love the rural atmosphere, warm welcome and breathtaking mountain surroundings. See the reviews by our guests who verify why our cottage ,Ty Isa, is so attractive in itself and how the central location is great for accessing all that North and Mid-Wales has to offer.

What makes this cottage unique

We enjoy the sense of history of the cottage itself and being right in the centre of Welsh culture in Llanuwchllyn. A cosy retreat that helps you unwind so peacefully.

Owner's Response: Thank you Ifona! We've tried to think of most things that makes a holiday a relaxing time and added one or two extras to make it special. In November what's better than cosying up round the fire?! Come again and explore some more...regards, Paul.

Owner's Response: Thank you again Jayne! So many of our guests have fallen for Ty Isa and this area that we are seeing more and more return and that, of course, is really lovely. We're looking forward to the new footbridge over the river being completed to provide another direction to explore. Best wishes, Paul.

Owner's Response: Terrific! Thank you very much indeed Brian ( and family), from your comments in the visitors' book about how you enjoyed staying at Ty Isa (a monopoly tournament is good old-school entertainment!) and your review here you've discovered what we love about Llanuwchllyn and Snowdonia. We've made the cottage how we'd like to find it and our guests seem, like you, to really appreciate that. Do come again and experience a different season! Thanks and regards, Paul.

Owner's Response: Thank you! It sounds like you've fallen for Llanuwchllyn as we have, it really is such a lovely place, easy to get to, a pub that serves great food and excellent beer in view of glorious mountain scenery. We add those little welcome treats because we'd appreciate them too, so yes, do come again!
