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.

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.

A very enjoyable stay in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our recent stay. The cottage is comfortable and well equipped, our dog loved the garden and the pub next door serves very good food. The location is good and the countryside is beautiful, with plenty to do and see. Paul was really helpful throughout, thank you. We would definitely recommend the cottage.

Owner's Response: I'm so pleased that you all had an enjoyable stay, I'll pass on your comments to The Eagles too, their reputation is also very good-CAMRA community pub of the year no less! Like you, we are so taken with the proximity of so many fascinating places within easy reach from the coast to the mountains. Thank you, do come again!

Really great property with everything a family needs

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 days and would highly recommend it - everything felt like new. It was cosy, well decorated and in a great location next to a good pub. The host was also extremely good at communication and follow up. Would definitely recommend!

Owner's Response: I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay at Ty Isa! It's gratifying that a guest who has an international lifestyle discovered the attractions of the essentially Welsh village of Llanuwchllyn and enjoyed the splendid environment of Snowdonia. We refurbished Ty Isa to reflect the history, culture and traditional landscape of the area in a contemporary style and so many of our guests have commented on how they appreciated this which again, we are so pleased about. We're now officially four-star rated with Visit Wales and cyclists and walkers friendly so we hope to see more guests who will also come and see us with their boots and bikes to see the scenery at close hand! Thank you Oliver!

Charming cosy cottage in stunning area of Wales

  • 4 of 5

We were delighted with Ty Isa. It had everything we needed and was immaculate throughout. If you are looking for a base to explore this beautiful area then look no further. We didn't have to book the full week in the Easter holidays which is a major plus when you just want a few days away. We were able to take our dog and there is a drying room in a shed where you can stow bikes etc. Bala is a short drive away where you can catch a delightful miniature steam train back which terminates in the village, a great way to take in a proper view of the lake. We also managed beach and estuary walks and hired mountain bikes at Brenin Forest and we only stayed three days. Will definitely return, thank you Paul!

cosy, clean and an ideal base for this area

  • 5 of 5

My husband volunteers on the Bala Lake Railway, which is only a short, pleasant walk from the cottage. It enables him to enjoy his volunteering and for me to have some comfort whilst he does it!!

There a lots of things to do within a short driving distance and after a day in the Welsh weather it's lovely to come back to a cosy base. The pub nextdoor means that there is no need to cook but if you wish to the cottage has all the facilities you require.

The beds are comfortable and it is easy to get a good nights sleep after a busy day. We love it here and will be returning.

Owner's Response: Brilliant! Thank you Helen, another attraction-the Bala Lake railway- to add to the list of reasons why guests visit time and again! Looking forward to welcoming you back to Ty Isa and Llanuwchllyn later in the year.
