Pleasant stay, but lack of space was a slight negative point
Remote location with fine views (although shame about the telegraph/electricity wires), access track is steep but relatively pothole-free, owners are very friendly and I'm sure they'd go out of their way to help if there were any problems. The main issue for us was lack of space to put anything, especially in the conservatory - I think this needs a rethink in terms of the furniture provided (e.g. too many chairs and no free shelving or side tables; most of our personal possessions ended up on the floor). Kitchen is well equipped, but again there's very little space to put things when cooking. The heating remained a mystery to us throughout our stay, though this didn't matter because it wasn't cold - again, I'm sure the owners would sort this out if it became a major issue.

Excellent stay
Excellent cottage that provides wonderful access to snowdonia national park The owner Rosie very helpful and welcoming and felt reassured that she was available if anything was needed or advice. All round amazing trip and will return along with high recommendations !

Excellent pre-honeymoon break!
After a really hectic 2 weeks following our wedding we really needed a quiet and relaxing escape. This cottage was perfect for what we wanted. Cosy with amazing views in a beautiful part of Wales! The owners made us feel extremely welcome even before we arrived and were helpful, yet completely unobtrusive throughout. They weren't joking when they said it was a difficult farm track to get up though! Highly recommend using something with high ground clearance to get there. Would also recommend a pair of slippers for the curling up in the conservatory as the rest of the cottage has wonderful underfloor heating and you can really feel the difference! We had a wonderful time at Ty Bach and would love to return in future.

Fabulous accommodation, small but perfectly formed and in a beautiful location. We highly recommend for a couple to truly get away from it all.
