About the property

House in Harlech, Snowdonia National Park, Gwynedd, North Wales, Wales - Walking Distance to the numerous Harlech Attractions, close to ZIPWORLD/BOUNCE BELOW.

Warm spacious modern house in a quiet cul de sac above Harlech Castle. It is close to the historic Barmouth bridge, Mount Snowdon and the Ffestiniog + Welsh Highland Railways. Also nearby is Portmeirion, and Zip world/Bounce below, and obviously the World Heritage Site that is Harlech Castle! Ty Mefus(strawberry house) is ideally suited to either a large family, or family group where one party may require more privacy. Ty Mefus has a kitchen and dining area on both floors giving more accomodation flexibility than most holiday homes. There is a large sun terrace with BBQ accessed from the first floor lounge/diner and top kitchen area giving brilliant flexibility to both relaxing and don`t forget the large kitchen diner downstairs as well. Ty Mefus is ideally placed to catch the sun all day but especially so in the afternoon and for the spectacular Harlech sunsets!

The park is ideal for exercising your dog/s, the children or even yourselves and leads to the church and then onto the iconic centre of Harlech itself.

We do ask that all guests respect the World Heritage Site status of Harlech and also the peace and quiet that our friends and neighbours enjoy. If you feel you may not be able to commit to this request, then please contact us for more information or try and choose a more suitable holiday home in the Harlech area

We can even arrange, subject to availability, for our caravan to be outside Ty Mefus to increase the sleeping capacity by a further 6 people. This will however restrict parking at Ty Mefus, but there is a carpark 200 metres down the road.

What makes this house unique

Ty Mefus is spacious and warm and ideally situated within Harlech in that use of a car is not necessary.As an upside down home of sorts it makes the most of its position.

We are able to collect guests from the nearest railway station, and even offer the use of ourselves and car for touring around Snowdonia for a small extra charge!

Good sized house with comfortable rooms.

  • 4 of 5

2 day trip with work friends to walk Snowdon. Lots of space allowed us to all have our own rooms. Everything worked well and property was perfect for our trip. I'd recommend this to parties such as ours and large families; perhaps two families who get on. Great place and fulfilled all our needs. Good price too.
