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.

Lovely cottage and a perfect retreat.

  • 5 of 5

What a great cottage in a lovely little village. We stayed in march the weather was grim but what made the long walk out and our attempt at snowdon more rewarding was knowing that we had this cosy cottage to come back to and relaxe in in front of the log burner. And also as an added bonus the eagles pub next door is ideal and offer a warm welcome and serve a great pint. I would advise to book to eat on a Saturday night or for Sunday lunch. We ate there for Sunday lunch and what great value it is. We have already recommended to others with dogs that this cottage is perfect with the enclosed garden for them to roam. Thank you Paul we hade a fantastic stay. Richard & Rachael

Owner's Response: Thank you, glad you enjoyed your stay! As you discovered even in March we have so much on offer for everyone from expansive beaches to wild mountains and quaint towns. Ty Isa is so well located for all of this and returning home to the woodburning stove with the pub next door makes the icing on the cake!

One of the best cottages we've ever stayed in! (and we've stayed in a lot!!!)

  • 5 of 5

We were really impressed with the communication from Paul, The cottage itself is a real gem. Beautifully and tastefully decorated, very clean and extremely cosy!! Although the weather was shocking (Storm Doris did her best to ruin our trip) the cottage still put a smile on our face. Thanks Paul, we'd recommend your cottage to anybody.

Owner's Response: Thank you James, that's one of the best reviews I've had! I was rather concerned that Storm Doris would spoil your stay but clearly Ty Isa worked it's magic and saved the day! Do come back and see Wales in, hopefully, better weather...Regards, Paul.

What a fantastic cottage this is, well appointed with everything you need for a pleasant stay. Plenty of towels and nice touches like milk and cookies on your arrival. Clean and perfectly situated with plenty of parking. Great base for exploring Snowdonia and lake Bala. Well recommended !

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review! Even February in Wales is atmospheric and we, like you, enjoy returning from the outdoors to a log fire and the cosy cottage. Do come again and see a different season's scenic splendour !

Perfect cosy cottage, in an ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

The owner Paul obviously puts a lot of effort into making the cottage warm and welcoming on arrival, even down to the fresh flowers, delicious cake and milk in the fridge.

The cottage is extremely clean, well maintained and beautifully furnished.

It is ideally located for visiting the surrounding area, and having a pub that serves excellent food so close by is the icing on the cake!

Thanks to Paul for great communication during the booking process.

We hope to visit again.
