Love this cottage, very clean and spacious, lovely decor, but still retains its character, there is everything you need for a relaxing stay and it is in an ideal location for walking/sightseeing. The views are amazing ( especially from the bathroom!), as are the luscious gardens. A great place to recharge your batteries! Diolch!!

Many thank Gaynor. Hwyl fawr, Dylan

About the neighbourhood
Tanycastell is located at the foot of Moel Siabod and therefore many walks and cycle routes can be started from the cottage. 4 miles east is Betws y Coed, North Wales' tourist hub. Beyond the Crimea pass is Blaenau Ffestiniog which is about to open a range of brand new exciting mountain bike trails. Half an hour away is Llandudno, North Wales' famous Victorian seaside resort. Harlech and Black Rock beaches are only 30 minutes away, or you could walk or take the train up to see the new Hafod Eryri cafe built on the summit of Snowdon. Numerous local festivals are held throughout the year including Wakestock.
