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 catering...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!

70th Birthday Party family & friends

  • 4 of 5

An interesting weekend for us in Harlech, visiting the castle was awesome and the walk from the beach was challenging! The house was very comfortable and a lovely location however 4 double bedrooms (8 people) and only one toilet and shower between them was not satisfactory. The upstairs en-suite doesn't help the others when you have already retired or not yet got up! Poor internet connection was inconvenient. But overall enjoyable...

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed your long weekend in Harlech. It is a shame that the internet was playing up during your visit, our children cannot wait to get to Ty Mefus as the broadband is much better than in our house up the road! We have not changed or altered the building layout of Ty Mefus since the detailed description and facilities were posted on the websites, which shows how important it is to properly read the descriptions provided by the host for the guests to read and check for suitability, before booking.

Very spacious and couldn't have found a better location!

  • 5 of 5

I chose this property because it matched all the criteria requested by all 10 of us staying there. It was exactly how it was listed on the website when we arrived. Very comfortable and warm. We loved the space in the living/dining room. very spacious to fit enough of us around both the couch and dining table. We spent our Saturday visiting the Harlech Castle and the stunning beach. Then followed that by a meal at the Tandoori House and some Karaoke at The Lion Pub. All recommended by Trevor and Sue :) Had such a great weekend so thank you for such a lovely stay :)

Very clean, well equipped and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I visited with some friends and we all had a very relaxed break. The house was very spacious and the surrounding area was a pleasure to visit. The castle is a real highlight of the trip and the people of Harlech are very friendly. The booking process is easy and Trevor and Sue are friendly, efficient and very helpful. We would love to visit again. Xx

Owner's Response: It is great to know that you all had such a good time in friendly Harlech, visiting the various attractions Snowdonia has to offer, especially since the weather was not on top form for you! We look forward to welcoming again you in the future. Trevor and Sue.

Great property for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

This house is ideal for holidaying with extended family, with the extra kitchen space and wonderful roof terrace meaning we could all relax without having to be on top of one another all the time, but equally the fabulous dining table and outdoor barbeque area provided a good space for socialising too. We also enjoyed the close proximity to the park, and the fact it is only a very short walk through to the town and amenities. Harlech itself is a good base for exploring the area, as well as having its own amazing castle and golden sandy beach. Young and old, we all climbed Snowdon, the experienced climbers doing the notorious 'Crib Goch' route (christened the 'utter nutter' route by us!) and descending the PYG path, and the rest of us going up the Snowdon Ranger path. We also visited Dinorwig the Electric Mountain, and the National Slate Museum, both of which were either free or very reasonably priced and well worth a visit. All in all, a great holiday, and Trevor and Sue provided lots of extra information and assistance, along with lovely touches in the house such as leaving milk, butter and traditional welsh cake and beer - wonderful! Highly recommended for families young and old.
