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.

Ty Newydd is a beautifully restored old cottage in a perfect location away from it all. We had a truly relaxing weekend surrounded by magnificent views. J & G

We’ve just got back from our fourth stay here, so that’s recommendation enough really!!
I just feel happy and relaxed from the minute that I set eyes on the place.
I love the peace, views and only having cows as neighbours!
The only fly in the ointment is that everyone else obviously has the same idea, because it’s getting increasingly difficult to get in now, it’s always booked up! Obviously I am pleased that it’s doing so well, but, selfishly, not if it means that we can’t return as often as we’d like!!!

We have just returned from a long weekend staying in Ty-Newydd. The compact but delightful dwelling has been beautifully restored. We did not experience any issues with the cleaning and judging from the many excellent comments in the visitors book, the issues experienced by the previous reviewer were very much the exception. As the cooler evenings draw in the log fire is a must…and may create more dust, but that’s to be expected. The cottage is not on mains water…so the owners leaving bottled water, as well as milk and wine, was much appreciated. I’d advise others to take more water and logs if you don’t want to spend your time shopping, but facilities are only a few minutes away by car. It’s a peaceful spot, no light pollution and very little noise so allowed for a relaxing time. Walks from the door as well as nearby around Bala make for good all round spot.
