Traditional stone cottage with hillside garden surrounded by ancient woodland and sheep fields, the perfect rural retreat located in Snowdonia National Park above the Mawddach Estuary with its renowned scenery and walks.

Located in Arthog, not far from the historic market town of Dolgellau and the coastal village of Fairbourne boasting a miniature steam railway, summer ferry to Barmouth with its pubs, restaurant, shops, sandy beach and craggy cliffs. Join many footpaths or cycle routes along the coast, Mawddach estuary and across the countryside in Snowdonia National Park. With so many activities from swimming to sailing, fishing to horse riding, walking to cycling, and the host of attractions to visit such as King Arthurs Labyrinth, Portmeirion, Welsh castles and Zip World, there is always something to see and do. A perfect location to relax and explore the best North Wales has to offer.

Park your car and walk up the private grass and slate footpath between two fields to reach this delightful detached rural retreat. Open the red front door and enter this lovely traditional cottage with exposed beams and inglenook fireplace in the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. To your right is the creatively designed kitchen with dining table, and if you decide to eat in, the kitchen is well-equipped with electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and all the thoughtful little extras creating a lovely space to cook in. After dinner, relax on the chairs and sofa in the lounge area, plan your activities or watch a film on the TV. For cosy nights in light the wood burner and lose yourself in a good book. 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.

This detached property nestles into the hillside with fabulous views across the Mawddach Estuary, mountains in the distance and out to the sea beyond. The natural garden has lots of places to sit and relax, the garden is equipped with table and chairs to enjoy morning coffee, afternoon tea and al fresco dining, or maybe fire up the charcoal BBQ.

We're extremely happy with the experience, and will very likely return next year. Thank you so much!

Stunning location, perched on the hillside with ever-changing view out towards the sea, sunny garden, and amazing sunsets. Cottage very sympathetically renovated, combining tradition, character and comfort. The quirks - its own footpath from the road, the steep stairs up to the bedroom - just add to its charm, and everything works, including Wi-Fi.Read more Great walks from the door, and many attractions further afield. A very special place. Hide

Characterful cottage in beautiful location. Perfect for our holiday with teenage kids - Snowdon climbed, mountain biking , Harlech castle, walking, log fire on blustery August days?! And Wi-Fi- everyone was happy!

Reviewed by Stephen 26th July 2019

Stayed at the cottage in July/August for a week with my wife and 6 year old daughter. Be prepared for a bit of a hike up to the cottage, its a very short walk but uphill. However when you get there the place is magical, remote and so very picturesque and peaceful. The cottage is clean and there was milk and butter provided, these little touches makRead moree all the difference. The views are splendid and the garden is lovely to sit back and relax in. 5 star rating and very highly recommended! Hide

Ty Coch is a lovely cottage halfway up a hillside near Arthog. The cottage is cosy and comfortable, and it is just so nice staying there. Also there is a nice garden with views to the sea and the Afon Mawddach. It's ideal for those who want to explore this part of Snowdonia national park - footpaths into the mountains are quite literally "on your dRead moreoorstep". It's great! Hide

Reviewed by Rebecca 28th June 2019

This cottage is absolutely beautiful and set in stunning scenery. It is well equipped and has lots of information about local walks, nature reserves, cycling and everything else. The only thing I would be wary about is the narrow staircase and long walk from the car to the cottage. It wasn't a problem for us but maybe worth mentioning.

Reviewed by Colin 14th June 2019

Loved the cottage a period building tastefully renovated....but I had not appreciated the stepness of the paths or their length and due to previous heavy rain the first section was under water for 3 days I would not rebook this one for this reason alone

Reviewed by Pat 7th June 2019

Ty Coch is a delight. The garden is lovely although not secure for dogs and there are sheep in the adjoining fields but there's a hefty bench one can attach a long lead to. There are excellent walks all around, many straight from the door. The downside is that you do need to have someone fit with you to lug the bags up the long, steep path. The lowRead more headroom in the main bedroom and the very steep stairs also require a certain agility. We had the wettest June week ever and still had a good time. Hide

Reviewed by Jane 24th May 2019

Ty Coch is absolutely gorgeous! If you want to get away from bustle it is ideal; no neighbours (except the sheep) surrounded by stunning views and lovely walks. The gardens are beautiful, and the cottage is cosy and quirky; we loved the stable door in the bathroom, and our daughter couldn't decided between the mezzanine bedroom and the 'cupboard' oRead morene (a tiny door connects it to the main bedroom) the photos don't do it justice.

Lovely secluded cottage. Located on the hill next to fields with sheep. It was quiet and relaxing. The cottage was lovely, proper old charm! We had a fantastic weekend here and would highly recommend it if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Cottage had everything you would need and amazing views!

Really wonderful little cottage with amazing views. Couldnt recommend it more, perfect for a weekend away with the girls for walks and proper catch ups

Reviewed by Faith 19th April 2019

Pretty well equipped cottage with great views if you can manage the hike to the top. It offers a cosy romantic escape or a central base to visit neighbouring areas but only suitable for fit hiker's travelling light. Not suitable for anyone with mobility or health issues complicated by a steep hike.

Reviewed by Vicky 12th April 2019

This cottage is gorgeous. Such a comfortable home really well stocked kitchen with all mod cons. The stairs to the bedroom upstairs are very steep almost like a ladder. They have left some recommendations for walks and activities. We had a great holiday.
