Gwyliau Talwrn Bach (Talwrn Bach Holidays) is a small family concern providing self catering holiday homes to rent within the Snowdonia National Park. The attractive, typically Welsh stone farmhouse and cottages are situated along a quiet lane about half a mile from the village of Llanbedr, right on the Wales Coast Path. We are some two miles from Mochras, also known as Shell Island.
The flexible accommodation and our location near stunning beaches and mountains make us a popular destination for families, couples and groups, to enjoy walking, cycling, golf as well as traditional seaside holidays and the opportunity to visit the numerous historical sites and tourist attractions in the area. For a rural location we have very good public transport links, and are well located for steam train enthusiasts. Llanbedr, within easy walking distance, is a small, pretty village with pubs serving excellent food, grocery stores, and a cycle hire shop. Nearby Harlech with its spectacular castle is a world heritage site, and there are shops, attractions etc at Barmouth and Porthmadog within easy driving distance.
The farm, Talwrn Bach, was our family home for several generations. We now use the farmhouse for our own holidays and at other times it is let to guests. The farmhouse has pleasant gardens at the front. In recent years the old farm buildings were converted into two cottages. The character of the 300 year old building was retained, with exposed beams, restored stonework, doors and windows in traditional local style. The old farmyard was converted into a large patio area, shared between the two cottages. A second patio area is available for all the guests, on a hill behind the property with a stunning view out towards the sea. Across the lane is a walled orchard, also shared by all our guests. The accommodation is well equipped, with oil central heating throughout and open fireplaces in the farmhouse. There is ample car parking space on site. Travel cots and high chairs can be prebooked at no additional charge.
Free wifi is provided.
