About the property

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

We still have some days available over HALF TERM and EASTER at the moment!! 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 or picking up from the airport for an appropriate small extra charge!

The house is well equipped with a plenty of space for 8-10 people. Sue even put the flowers in a vase for welcoming us. We have everything we need for a small party dinner. We really enjoyed our stay there. The location is superb, close to the restaurants, bars, golf course, tennis court and the beach. Snowdonia and Cader Idris are both not too far. Such a lovely place to spend the weekend with your family and friends. Thank you to Trevor and Sue.

We had a great time

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant 4 days. The house was spacious, warm. It had a lovely feel to the home. Everything you need was provided. (Minus your food). The surrounding area was beautiful. The scenery is breathtaking. We will be booking again. My kids were sad to be leaving, they can not wait to go back.

Clean and beautifully maintained house in ideal location for exploring Snowdonia national park

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 7 friends had a lovely stay in this cottage. There was plenty of room for all of us, we particularly liked the living room with the dining table big enough for us all to sit around and enjoy meals together. The village itself was lovely (although keep your eye on the time if you want food - the only place willing to take us at 8pm on a saturday night was the Indian!). The castle in particular is very impressive, as were the sea views.

We used the cottage as a base for climbing mount snowdon, and found it was well-situated, with not too long a drive to the nearest car-parks for the walk.

Overall we had a lovely stay and would highly recommend the cottage to anyone.
