Late last year, we treated ourselves to a midweek break in a delightful stone-built detached farmhouse that has been lovingly renovated to make a wonderful holiday cottage in Eisingrug near Harlech.
8 months later, fed up of watching political parties bickering over budgets, I’ve actually got round to publishing a little review of our magical find and also a £30 discount when booking through AirBNB.
Location wise, you have the very best of North Wales & Snowdonia on your doorstep making it an ideal place of adventure for not only families with young ones, but groups of walkers too.
Tyn Llwyn accommodation
Tyn Llwyn available via AirBNB, stands on a seven-acre smallholding in a lovely rural location offering peace and disconnection from the world. You will NOT have access to Facebook
Tyn Llwyn is set on a wooded hillside, this charming Harlech holiday cottage provides lovely self-catering accommodation including four charming bedrooms, a woodburner and an attractive, well-equipped dining kitchen, which includes a feature inglenook fireplace with sofa to relax on.
The front sitting area is perfect for dining alfresco whilst listening to the meandering river which flows beside this Harlech cottage but is something you need to be aware of if travelling with little ones.
The Harlech area itself is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, with wonderful walking and cycling trails available in all directions. Every morning and evening I took our Labradoodle, Edie, for a walk along the lanes, meeting the horses in the fields, across rivers and through wooded areas whilst the sun rose above the hills. On our travels I collected bags blackberries from the roadside which we stored in the freezer and brought home with us.
With Harlech’s golden sandy beach just 5 minutes drive away, it’s ideal for families and whenever we ventured down, we found we were the only people on the beach for as far as the eye could see!
During our stay, we took Little G-Man on the steam train from Porthmadog where we found an amazing cafe/restaurant for lunch. A little nervous on his first train trip, he soon settled to the point of wanting to walk up and down the carriage to greet our fellow travellers.
Our final day was spent exploring Harlech Castle where Little G was amazed by the smoke blowing dragon found in the grounds. Oh and for the record, everything about our trip was DOG FRIENDLY ? including the accommodation!
