Two Bedroom holiday Cottage in the Mountains Above Dolgellau | Tyn-Simdde

X4
Pet FriendlyReal Fire
Dolgellau
 
 

This two-bedroom holiday cottage in the mountains above Dolgellau in North Wales. A traditional stone cottage with lots of character features, the cottage provides an idyllic escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life.

Once you’ve parked up and finished admiring the uninterrupted panoramic views of the valley below a painted front door leads you into an open plan ground floor layout. A spacious kitchen diner to your right and a welcoming lounge to your left divided by a central staircase.

The kitchen comprises simple elegant fitted units with a luxurious enamelled double sink. A modern oven and hob, washing machine and fridge freezer are also included. Opposite, some lovely upholstered dining chairs surround a substantial wooden table. A living flame gas fire sits on the gable wall whilst a traditional country cottage window complete with window seat fills the space with a soft warm light.

A second identical window overlooks the lounge area. But the dominant feature here is the very impressive inglenook fireplace. A huge welsh granite beam frames a cast iron log fire. Two large sofas in turn flank the fire. A central coffee table provides a resting place for your cheese and biscuits and glass of wine.

Eventually of course it will be time for bed. There are two bedrooms upstairs. One double room and one twin room. Both bedrooms are spacious and bright. High vaulted ceilings and exposed wooden trusses are complimented by softly painted walls and reclaimed pitch pine floorboards which allegedly came from Barmouth Bridge.

The shared bathroom is smaller but perfectly formed and houses a shower cubicle, WC and washbasin.

Location

 

As described, Tyn-Simdde is in a uniquely quiet and undisturbed spot. Surrounded by forests to the North with the valley floor opening out in front of you to the south the cottage is a true haven from modern life.

The surrounding Coed Y Brenin forest is a mecca for mountain bikers in this part of the world. The quiet forest lanes will lead you directly onto these renowned trails, which are free to use. Guests can choose from the gentler Afon and Minor Taur routes suitable for younger families whilst more experienced riders might prefer to test their nerve on the Beast of Brenin or Tarw routes. The visitors centre which acts as a hub for cyclists has a great little cafe, play area and children’s nature walks.

There are lots of other walks accessible right from your doorstep as well, including the popular precipice walk on the Nannau Estate.

The market town of Dolgellau is 7 miles away and has a couple of nice pubs and restaurants as well as two small supermarkets. The seaside town of Barmouth is about 9 miles further on to the west. Bala and Blaunau Ffestiniog are approximately 30 mins away by car and host a range of exiting adventure sports activities including climbing, zip lines, gorge walking and white water rafting. So a remote spot but still a great base from which to explore this part of Snowdonia.

Lovely comfy and peaceful stay. Beautiful views and spacious accommodation. Perfect for a break away in south Snowdonia and well located for Coed Y Brenin forest, the pretty town of Dolgellau and the stunning Mawddach estuary.

Stayed 1st-5th of November, first thing we noticed was how peaceful the location was and the natural beauty of the area.
The cottage it’s self was absolutely beautiful, done just right, with little nice touches.
Spotless clean….
The week itself was perfect and just what we both needed.
Will 100% re-book.

We loved Tyn Simdde. It was a fairytale cottage in a secluded setting, The only suggestions we have are for more lighting in the kitchen and dining room, a tray for teatime, and a hairdryer!
Thanks again.

We had a lovely few days at Tyn y Simdde – the historic building has been sensitively restored whilst being a very comfortable and well kitted out place to stay. It was very warm and cosy, beds very comfy and a great place to unwind. It was great having a properly equipped kitchen and a roaring fire to curl up by.
The location is ideal, close to towns like Dolgellau but feels like the edge of the world. Thanks to Storm Jorge, we didn’t get to sit outside and enjoy the peace and quiet and the views from the the house but we’re sure we’ll be back there again.

Wow! Just spent one week in this beautiful cottage and stunning location. The scenery is just breathtaking and loved the sounds of the birds chorus every morning and wind whispering through the trees. Lots of walks from your door step and Barmouth beach only 30 minute drive away.Treated ourselves to the best fish chips in Wales. The cottage has a beautiful open fire and has everything you need …….even a heated blanket to warm your bed of a night. The owners have thought of everything in the cottage and all’s you need to bring is your food for the week, walking gear, and waterproofs. The stars at night were just amazing, no light pollution In this beautiful location. Don’t make the same mistake as my friend and always as a rule leave the key in the key safe outside . Whilst we were in awe Looking at the night sky my friend accidentally locked the door , she had taken key out of key safe earlier and forgot to put back. We walked to the nearest neighbour who was absolutely a godsend, thankfully she had owners number. So much gratitude to the owner who drove out in the evening to let us back in the cottage . This cottage has been by far one of the best that I’ve stayed in. Also I accidentally found dionis website as I was looking for that perfect retreat with other holiday companies. Some beautiful cottages on their website and will definitely be booking with them again . If you want peace and tranquility you have to book this cottage , you won’t regret it. ❤️

We had an amazing 4 nights at Tyn y Simdde and actually can’t find a single fault with the cottage. We arrived in the evening and the house was so cosy, warm and welcoming. It’s the most perfect place to switch off and embrace the simple things in life like the views, the wildlife and the wonderful walks through the Woodlands. We were lucky enough to see deer twice and plenty of birds on the feeders. This place is a haven that’s for sure! We will be back in the summer.

we booked this cottage well in advance so expectation was high and we were not disappointed. location is perfect we didn’t see a sole all week except a mountain biker whilst we were out exploring the surrounding forest.cottage was actually bigger than we expected, bathroom is really small but the shower is powerful and the little cupboard under sink come in handy. without a doubt we will book again. The drive is a little bumpy in parts wouldn’t wont to drive my supercar down it (if i get one)

We had a lovely time in this remote cottage. Perfect for what we needed. It had everything there that you could need.(maybe a bbq would complete it). Great location and views. Clean and tidy

We booked this lovely cottage for a few days to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed! We had all we needed- logs for the fire, candles, a kitchen full of the necessary crockery, utensils and appliances and fresh towels and clean bed linen. The place felt cosy yet spacious. The bathroom is small, but has a decent shower and even a little heated towel rail. Despite the time of year, we didn’t feel cold once, even during the night after our beloved fire had burned out. The views from all windows were breathtaking and we didn’t see a sole the whole visit, apart from our peaceful sheep neighbours and various birds. The place was ideal to get away from it all, but the WiFi worked well when needed. Because it was a short trip this time, we didn’t feel the need to walk far and just relaxed and enjoyed staying indoors. Consequently we got through our food and firewood supply a little earlier than anticipated! But we found more than we needed of both requirements in the large Co op in Barmouth, one of our favourite coastal towns, which is only about a 20 minute drive away. We realised we were taking a bit of a gamble with the weather and when it snowed on our penultimate night we decided to cut our trip a bit short just in case the roads back were too treacherous. But the views the next morning of the snowcapped peaks in the sunshine were incredible!! We were sad to leave, but I’m sure we will visit again!! 🙂
