“Beautiful winter break”
Reviewed 8 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We had a really nice stay at Ty'r Adar at Graig Wen with a group of friends over new year. Sarah was incredibly helpful before our stay and during. From all the information she sent before we arrived, through to even letting us know what the roads were like (snow was forecast) to the folder in the cottage with tips of what to do and where to go within the area, everything was sorted. Even though we knew the spot fairly well, we discovered some new bits through the recommendations.

The cottage is warm, and the wood burner is a bonus. It has all you need for a holiday break in terms of amenities. We were a large group, so getting through the one bathroom in the morning sometimes took a while, but that's to be expected.

As another reviewer mentioned, if I were to stay again, I would probably go for the property at the back facing the estuary, because the view is so beautiful, but there is a communal area with benches to take it in.

There's an honesty shop for things like wood, and at the main reception you can buy (delicious) local ale which was handy for us when we forgot the shops close a little earlier on new year's eve!

We enjoyed walking up Cader Idris, and exploring the Coed y Brenin forest area, and spent a couple of evenings in the Last Inn in Barmouth all of which I'd recommend. A couple of us managed a run along the Mawwdach trail which is just a short walk down the hill from the main building and is very scenic

“Great base to explore glorious mountains, castles and beaches of Snowdonia”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We are a family with a 9 year old boy who stayed at Graig Wen for a week in a self catering cottage. The site has a bed and breakfast, a few other cottages and campsite on a former quarry overlooking the Mawddach estuary. Sarah and her team work hard on site to keep the place immaculate, and there is a small shop on site where you can get milk, wood for the woodburning stoves, campfires or barbecues and even order hampers of local produce or croissants for breakfast.
We had a great week using the cottage as a base to explore the fantastic countryside. Sarah has prepared a comprehensive guide to local places to eat, shop and take children which was very helpful. We hired bikes in Dollgalau as suggested and took the Mawddach trail to Barmouth,hiked up mountains to explore iron age forts, waterfalls and gorges in Snowdonia, and visited loads of castles.
Beds were clean and comfortable with lovely Welsh blankets, and we slept like logs at night. Kitchen a little dark and sticky but well equipped for a holiday home.
Ty'r Adar faces the main road. I think if we were to go again we would get a cottage at the back with sweeping views of the fabulous Mawddach Estuary.
Bumped into friends at Graig Wen who had been camping there for 5 years which was a great recommendation. This is a beautiful and uncrowded part of North Wales with fabulous sandy beaches close at hand, would recommend this as a destination for families or couples, particularly if they like walking.

“Heaven”

This is our second visit, the first we stayed in a yurt, but now returning with 2 new additions (a schnauzer and a 6 month old daughter)and ty'r Adar has perfectly accommodated all of our needs. The location for a variety of walks an jaw dropping views is second to none, the weather had been horrid this weekend but even storms can't dampen spirits when in such beautiful surroundings.
Yet again can't wait to return.
