Beyond the kitchen and down some steps you will find the stylish ground floor bathroom with bath, separate shower and WC, just perfect to relax in a bubble bath and dry off with soft towels. Beyond the kitchen and bathroom and up the boat steps you will find the mezzanine single bedroom. Up the narrow steep stairs to the first floor is the king-size bedroom and a door to the left leads you to one of the single bedrooms. Due to the nature of the conversion there is limited head room in parts of the bedroom. All the bedrooms have lovely views over the garden and towards the Mawddach Estuary and beyond.

Where do I start...a magical cottage hidden in a peaceful wood up a hill, with a beautiful garden filled with birds, a buzzard even came to say hello. Badgers snuffling around on the lawn....easy walks straight from the door to the estuary, or across the bridge to Barmouth with so many lovely eateries and pubs. Or for a wilder walk up above the cotRead moretage and not a soul around. Then back home to settle infront of the cosy woodburner.

Fourth visit to this exceptional property and we'll keep going back as long as they keep accepting guests. The location is secluded and idyllic. If you want peace and quiet and an absence of people, then this is the place for you. The steps aren't an obstacle to anyone reasonably fit and healthy, and it's always bit of an initiation carrying the weRead moreek's luggage up from the car. Having said that, we manage the lot in one trip, and we bring most of our own food. Highly recommended. Hide

A lovely rural getaway within walking distance of a good number of excursions and attractions, with lovely gardens for if you don't plan on going out. As other reviews have mentioned, it's a fairly steep path up to the cottage itself from the parking - please bear this in mind especially when carrying your supplies for the week. We had a great timeRead more, and would certainly return given the chance. Hide

Beautiful location. Lovely cottage and garden was magical with excellent views of the sea and countryside. Lots to do and see in the area. Loved that you can walk onto the hill straight from the cottage.

We enjoyed our stay very much . We found the walk to and from the parking a little challenging at times . Our daughter fell going down the cottage path on our second day badly spraining her ankle and had to visit A and E . The upstairs is very low especially above the bed . Glad we were not a taller family ! The cottage is very cute and quirky and Read morethe garden has amazing views . More suited to guests who enjoy walking as there are lovely walks from the cottage but need to be reasonably fit . Hide

Fabulous old cottage in a perfect setting. Couldn't have wished for better. Cosy and well equipped. Just the right level of comfort without losing any of its rustic charm. Private setting with a lovely well-tended garden and panoramic views. Perfect location for exploring a wide sweep of Wales. We've ventured as far afield as Anglesey and LlangolleRead moren. Lots to do in the immediate vicinity. Three vists, and still haven't exhausted the possibilities. Train station a 20 min walk away. Hide

We had such a lovely stay at the cottage - beautiful views, idylic garden and wonderful wood burner to stay cosy inside. We visited local beaches, railways and especially loved the local Arthog waterfalls - a short walk directly from the cottage. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Ty Coch is a lovely old cottage in an unspoiled setting, with a glorious garden, and fine views across the estuary to the sea. There are steep but exhilarating walks through the ancient woods at the back, and easy walks down to the nature reserve and the estuary below. A peaceful and tranquil place. But the cost of that is the 100 yards climb up thRead moree path from the road (and therefore your car!). Don't go to Ty Coch if you can't manage that, but if you can it's so well worth the effort!

What a holiday. A great location to explore the amazing surroundings with our children. It was just the break we needed. The cottage itself was idyllic set in a private space with great views of the sea. Just magical.
