About Ty Uchaf

Ty Uchaf sleeps four guests in two bedrooms and offers a warm welcome at any time of the year. Providing cosy self-catering, this delightful stone holiday cottage sits right in the very heart of the Snowdonia National Park just five miles from the popular estuary town of Porthmadog in the little hamlet of Rhyd. The picturesque village of Beddgelert is also nearby and just seven miles away.

Nestling at the foot of Moelwyn Bach Mountain, Rhyd sits in the Vale of Ffestiniog which is home to the famous Ffestiniog Railway (which can be caught from Tan-y-bwlch station just a fifteen minute walk from the cottage). Ideally placed within easy reach of both the North Wales coastline and the mountains, there are a wealth of attractions and great days out to enjoy from the cottage.

Porthmadog is a vibrant town with a great choice of eating establishments and shops, surrounded by spectacular scenery that encompasses the beauty of both the mountains and coast. Steeped in maritime history, it is well known by train enthusiasts as the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland steam railways start their journeys from the bustling town. It also has strong appeal to wildlife enthusiasts with great bird spotting opportunities in the surrounding Glaslyn Estuary.

For those who fancy a day on one of the many beaches this beautiful part of North Wales is so famous for, Harlech with its expansive sandy beach and magnificent castle is only ten miles from Ty Uchaf. Borth-y-Gest and Black Rock Sands are even nearer and close to Porthmadog. The Llyn Peninsula is another of the areas hidden beauties that is easily accessible from the cottage with the coastal towns and villages of Abersoch, Criccieth and Aberdaron making lovely places to visit (within an hours drive). Portmeirion is also a must and just a fifteen minute car ride.

Rhyd offers the chance to escape the hustle and bustle of modern living and whilst it does not have a shop or pub, it is within easy reach (two miles) of two good pubs for those who want a meal out. The Oakley Arms at Maentwrog is one and the other is the Brondanw Arms in the village of Garreg Llanfrothen which also has a village shop for stocking up on provisions. Other shops and takeaways can be found in Penrhyndeudraeth which is three and a half miles from Ty Uchaf.
