About Tan Y Coed

Tan y Coed is a modern holiday home with a timeless appeal. Its luxurious interior balances beautifully with its incredible setting on the southern edge of the Snowdonia National Park, surrounded by Welsh countryside and only two miles walking from Barmouth and Fairbourne beaches. It can accommodate eight guests in four bedrooms so whether you are a large family or a group of friends, you will find your space here.

The house has been designed and built to make the most of its amazing views of the Mawddach Estuary and surrounding mountains. It is close to the village of Arthog on the banks of the Mawddach River. The Mawddach Trail is directly across the road from Tan y Coed, giving nine miles of relatively flat walking or cycling along an old railway line following the course of the estuary, spotting birds and other wildlife. There are also lots of beaches / trails and forests for your dog to enjoy.

Tan y Coed is centrally located for all of the Zipworld activities including a thrill seeking zip line, underground trampoline, treetop nets and forest toboggan run.

The Barmouth passenger ferry turns a ten-mile road journey into a three-mile trip. Barmouth has some excellent shops, pubs and cafes, as well as a fantastic beach and lovely harbour. It is lively in summer and relaxed during autumn and winter, but always a pleasure to visit. Another place with significant amenities is Dolgellau, seven miles away. The market town makes the perfect destination for an enjoyable bike ride, particularly if you are there on Thursday for the weekly market or the larger monthly farmers’ market. There are many excellent food producers in the region, and you may find yourself stocking your bag with goodies to take home with you!

Arthog Falls and Cadair Idris are popular routes for hikers but, despite their popularity, never feel busy or crowded. Indeed, there are days when you could walk for hours and not see another soul. Guests can reach Arthog Falls via a path leading from the house through an ancient oak forest. For visitors who find walking too slow a pace, Coed y Brenin Forest is around 12 miles (or a 20-minute drive) from Tan y Coed, with miles of walking, running routes and it’s world famous mountain bike trails including family friendly trails to suit all ages and abilities. There is also a café/play area.

Snowdonia National Park is well known for its beaches as well as its mountains, and there is pristine coastline just a few short miles from the house. Whether you drive, walk, or climb aboard the Fairbourne Miniature Steam Railway to get there, the miles of golden sandy beaches will provide ample space for building sand castles and exploring. It is also possible to arrange horseriding through the county or on the beach through a neighbouring farm.
Getting away from it all doesn’t have to mean giving up the luxuries that make you happy. At Tan y Coed you can have space and comfort in one of the most beautiful parts of Britain.

Accommodation Comprises:

  • The interior of Tan y Coed has been designed to put you at ease from the moment you open the door. The living room has two long, down-filled sofas facing each other, with a television and DVD at one end of the room, and twin-sided log burner at the other. There are bookshelves with books and games, and the dual aspect space means it gets nice natural light at any time of day.
  • Open plan kitchen and dining room which are on the other side of the log burner. The expansive dining table seats 8 comfortably in front of a full height window and has amazing views over the Welsh countryside.
  • The kitchen is sleek and modern, with a Bertazonni range, fridge, freezer and a dishwasher. There is plenty of cutlery and all the crockery and utensils you need whether you are cooking beans on toast or a Michelin star-worthy meal.
  • Separate utility room housing a washing machine and drier, plus an additional fridge and freezer which has a handy sink as well as drying space for wet coats and boots. The room doubles as a games room with a children’s pool table and table football.
  • The standard layout of the house can sleep eight guests in four bedrooms.
  • The principal bedroom suite on the first floor can be arranged as a super-king or split into a twin. Already large, it feels even more spacious thanks to the window and glass door that leads to an enclosed back garden. The room has an ensuite with walk-in shower, heated towel rail, washbasin and WC, and there is room to add a single fold-down bed/cot.
  • Second double room on the ground floor with king-size bed and ensuite shower room. A door takes you outside to the open-plan garden at the front of the property.
  • Two further bedrooms, each with super king-size beds that can be changed to form two single beds. Both are on the ground floor, both have room for a cot and both have a door taking you outside to the front garden.
  • Luxurious family bathroom with a deep bath, walk-in shower, heated towel rail, hand basin and WC. All the bathrooms have piles of soft cotton pima towels for guests to use during their stay.
  • A separate cloakroom with WC and handbasin is a necessity when the house is full.

Outside: A peaceful garden has a patio area with garden furniture and a gas barbecue with gas included. There is off-road parking for two cars.

Additional information: For those wishing to leave the car behind and travel via public transport, there are mainline trains from London and Birmingham to the local small train station approx one mile from the farm. Up to two well behaved dogs welcome by prior arrangement with the owner. Short breaks are possible, depending on availability. The property is non-smoking. Saturday changeover offered in peak season with flexibility the rest of the year.
