Tyddyn-y-Felin is a period farmhouse dating back to 1592 and was the home of a local bard who was the present owner's Grandfather. Four generations of the family have lived here. The home has a lot of history and used to have a water wheel, hence the name Felin meaning mill. Situated in a wealth of unspoilt beauty in a quiet position in the hills above Harlech, 2 miles, with its sandy beaches, 18 hole Royal St. David's Golf Club and castle. The house is reached via a 300 meter farm road off a country lane and cycle path which leads to the Roman Steps and another valley with its waterfalls and magnificent scenery for walking. Situated in the Snowdonia National Park and within easy reach of Portmeirion, Porthmadog, Barmouth and several tourist attractions. The owners live in a small annexe at the side and there is a pond for fishing... Read more

A most homely, very clean and well equipped cottage. The beds are very comfortable but the short climb up a rather steep stairway to the large bedroom at the top is a bit of a challenge but perfect for teenagers. This cottage is wonderful as...More

About the neighbourhood
Tyddyn-y-Felin is situated in the Snowdonia National Park with its many attractions amongst the wild Rhinog Mountain ranges and many lakes in the area. Covering over 823 square miles of diverse landscapes, Snowdonia National Park has something for everyone including Ramblers, Cyclists, Wildlife enthusiasts, Bird Watchers, Artists, Photographers, fishing, canoeists and climbers. Wild goats can be seen in the garden frequently, much to the plants/trees' disappointment! and buzzards are seen often. Star Gazers will be amazed at the bright sky at night, no smog here!

There is plenty to do come rain or sunshine with beaches, rivers, waterfalls, woodlands, forestry, mountains and walks abound. Visit the underground caves at Blaenau Ffestiniog or take a trip on any of the narrow gauge rail...

How to get there
Airport: Liverpool: 152.0 km

You will be driving past Dolgellau following Barmouth signs.
Go through Tal-y-Bont, Dyffryn Ardudwy, Llanbedr (there is a turning here near Victoria Hotel but on your first day could be daunting!), therefore:-
Go through Llanbedr and carry on along this road until you see Llanfair slate caverns on your right, carry on until you see crossroads with sign for Llandannwg Beach on your left, TAKE THE RIGHT HAND TURN, go up to the next Junction, GO LEFT, until you see a T-Junction with (signs for cycle path in blue and some yellow signs with picture of birds) go RIGHT here. Contine along this road for approx 1 mile, there is another crossroads (phone box on left) and a sign for CWM BYCHAN on your right, go RIGHT, pass waterworks on the left, pass Maes-yr-Aelfor Farm Cottages...
