Ty Gwyn

We designed Ty Gwyn to accommodate large groups for big family get togethers or special occasions, such as special birthdays or anniversaries - Lawrence and I have looked for places ourselves in the past but ended up booking a youth hostels, which while very nice, didn’t really suit the occasion. There didn’t seem to be many options between bunkhouses or stately homes and that wasn’t what we were looking for - we just wanted a big, comfortable, warm house with a big dining table so that we could all be together at meal times - we didn’t want to be in 4 or 5 separate cottages on the one site, which is often the case.

As soon as we saw Ty Gwyn (White House) we knew it was the place for us - in the Snowdonia National Park but right on the beautiful West coast of Wales. The view from the front door (and many of the bedrooms) is of Barmouth, Shell Island, Pwllheli, Abersoch and Aberdaron and then Bardsey Island is immediately in front of us - breathtaking!

There is plenty of space to move at Ty Gwyn and we have 4 and half acres of land and gardens, unlimited parking and no neighbours to bother. The lovely village of Llwyngwril has a great pub and shop (a 5 minute walk away) and the beach below the village is very easily accessible.

11 hole Frisbee Golf course. Frisbee Golf a great game that can be played by all the family, regardless of age and is a great way of getting people outside for some fun.

Fibre broadband with wi-fi throughout - most important nowadays!

If Ty Gwyn is the place you have been searching for then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.


A games room on the top floor with pool table - this area is a real magnet for kids and adults alike.

A proper bar! There are beer taps on the bar but they are purely decorative, you just need to stock the fridge - the optics do work though if you want to bring a few bottles.

Cinema with genuine cinema seats, surround sound, PS4, projector and huge 3m screen - another magnet for for adults and kids alike!

Large lounge with leather settees and large wood burner.

The large dining table sits 18 and then there is an additional table with benches when required - all people accommodated in the one room.

6 shower rooms (1 ensuite) and 6 W/Cs over the 3 floors.

Accessible bedroom on the ground floor with accessible wet room - perfect for any elderly or infirm guests.

There are 10 bedrooms in total - configuration (also see floor plan):

  • Top Bedroom has 4 singles

  • Linda’s, Jack’s, Green and Brown Rooms have king-sized beds

  • Red Room has twin beds

  • Big Bunkroom has 3 bunks

  • Colin’s and Blue Room are family rooms with a bunk & king-sized bed

  • Silver Room is an accessible ground floor bedroom with accessible en-suite (the 2 single beds can be pushed together to make a super king).


There is a minimum stay of 2 nights at a cost of £950 per night and for weekends you could arrive after 2pm on the Friday and then leave at anytime up to 4pm on the Sunday. We felt this was the best way of doing it as you don’t want to be rushing out on a Sunday morning after any sort of celebration!

The cost would include all electricity, heating, electricity, wi-fi, linen but not towels - there are no additional costs.

There is a large wood burner in the lounge and if you wanted to use this you would need to bring your own logs and kindling - alternatively, the farm at the bottom of our driveway sells logs.

We will ask for a cautionary £500 deposit to cover extra cleaning and breakages and this will need to be paid with the balance of the rental at 6 weeks prior to the commencement date. This deposit will of course be refunded if the property is left in the condition you find it. Please read the terms and conditions for Ty Gwyn.

Ty Gwyn is truly a special place in the perfect location for any special occasion - you wouldn’t be disappointed.

Best wishes
