Ty’r Adâr Cottage

The best thing about Ty’r Adâr?  Relaxing together on the big sofas after a day’s adventures …

Our holiday accommodation in Snowdonia with a woodburning stove is called Ty’r Adâr (which means House of Birds in Welsh).  The spacious self-catering accommodation sleeps 4 people in a stunning location in Snowdonia National Park near Barmouth and Dolgellau with direct access to the Mawddach Estuary Trail.


The large open plan lounge/kitchen is redecorated in cosy colours with two big comfy sofas, perfect for relaxing after a day’s exploring.  There is wifi and a large screen TV.   Upstairs the master bedroom is spacious with a double bed and view across to the wooded hills. The second bedroom can be set up with 2 single beds or one super-king sized bed. All beds have cosy Welsh tapestry blankets. There’s also a double sofa bed downstairs in the lounge by the woodburner.  Effective storage heaters mean the house is kept cosy when the fire is not lit.

The kitchen and bathroom have recently been refurbished. The kitchen is well equipped with a cooker/hob, fridge/freezer, microwave and washing machine. There is also a dining table and chairs for five in this area. The bathroom has a small bath with a piping hot overhead shower.


Ty’r Adâr means “House of Birds”. There’s no estuary view but the feeder outside the window is alive with finches, blue tits, nuthatches, siskins and many other birds. In summer, you’ll hear the house-martins nesting in the eaves – and there’s something special about lying in bed and listening to the owls hooting at night. If you are looking for a comfortable place to unwind after a day’s adventures then Ty’r Adâr is a good choice.

Open the front, stable-style door and step across our drive to a small private patio with table and chairs.  Although this is our only cottage without enclosed outdoor space for young children or dogs to roam, you can just walk around the corner to find benches overlooking the wonderful view on our small camp site with 40 acres of woods and feilds to explore.

Ty’r Adâr is part of a converted Victorian slate cutting shed and shares the same roof as the 3 other holiday lets at Graig Wen. Our small touring and glamping site is nearby.
