Amazing little cottage, amazing location!
I would highly recommend this cottage, perfect for a romantic getaway without any distractions and some lovely finishing touches (cushions, pictures etc.). No other houses in sight and nice walks immediately from door.
Kitchen/cooking items good, we had everything we needed for cooking various meals.
Underfloor heating and log burner means it’s nice and warm!
Not much mobile signal and no WiFi. This is a good thing if you’re looking to escape the stresses of daily life. But bring DVDs, bring books, bring games!
The Cot and High Chair on the listing weren’t in the cottage or we didn’t find them. Probably better for just two adults anyway but worth checking if you have a baby/toddler.
Water pressure was low, forget the shower and take a nice bath with a view. Water temperature very good and also clear for us.
Few bulbs needed replacing and a tap needed tightening. Probably been sorted by the time anyone reads this!
Thank you for having us, it was lovely.
Perfect little retreat in the peace and quiet. Cottage is stunning and has everything you will need for a relaxing weekend. Great location, easy enough to find, yet so secluded! We didn’t want to leave and are planning to return.
This cottage is set in peaceful surroundings, beautiful views. It’s cosy and a great place to get away from it all. Our host was amazing, it was our 30th wedding anniversary so arranged an afternoon tea for us upon arrival. It’s great that Bala is only a couple of minutes away. There are lovely walks around the cottage. We loved our stay and have made some lovely memories.

This little cottage was absolutely gorgeous, such a nice little break away from home. Gorgeous log burner and underfloor heating which was heavenly in the winter days. Gorgeous views from the house and very close to very scenic walks around the Bala Lake. Would love to go back.

Lovely week spent in this tucked away cottage; perfect base for long walks, cycle rides and using the local mountain bike centres. Our first holiday in Wales and the scenery did not disappoint – we’ll be back!

It was a very lovely cottage and very cosy.
Would not alter any thing.

Had a fabulous week in this lovely secluded, peaceful cottage with only the little black cows as neighbours. Inside was clean, warm and comfortable with all the extras you could need in the kitchen. The bed was large and comfy with a nice big bathroom next door to the bedroom. The town of Bala is only a short drive away with shops for stocking up and plenty places to eat. Great central area for walking which we were able to enjoy as the weather was kind the week we were there. Also plenty of places of interest to visit within a short drive from the cottage e.g. Llangolen, Harlech Castle and the Glass Blobbery. We would definately recommend staying here and hope to revisit ourselves in the future.

First off, what a beautiful and fabulous place, perfect for a little romantic trip away with someone special. Tucked away from everyone else you feel a real sense of getting away from it all and a chance to properly relax. It’s also a great base to get out into the hills for some lovely walks. We ended up bringing a few ‘kitchen bits’ with us that we were not needed as despite the kitchen being compact it had every utensil/pot/pan you could possibly need.
A couple of really minor things that could make things even better would be:
a) A larger sofa that could accommodate a Tv watching, snuggling couple.
b) A way of turning down the heating.. I couldn’t get it to cool down and resorted to opening windows.
c) I know you can’t do anything about the peat in the water, but it’s worth mentioning to others that the romantic edge could be taken off a double dip in the bath when it looks like a hippo has just got out. (Kidding, it’s just a bit brown).
Don’t let my moaning put you off, it is a fab place and hopefully we will be back soon.

Ty Newyedd is a beautifully restored cottage with wonderful views in a secluded setting. No WiFi, just a perfect place to relax and unwind. It is warm, cosy and has a charm all of its own.
There are great walks from the cottage, a lovely walk is up Moel Emoel the views from the top are amazing, another is into Bala across the fields. Many thanks to Flora and Richard for all the little extras they provide for their guests.

Had a wonderful few days in Ty Newydd. Perfect cottage to get away from it all. Lovely views and walks from cottage. Also walked Aran Fawddwy. Will definitely be coming back to Ty Newydd.
