(near Barmouth) - Bwthyn-Goronwy is a one bedroom barn conversion in the popular seaside village of Tal-Y-Bont. One of a row of three cottages which has been recently converted to a very high spec.
Everything from the lighting and the under-floor heating right down to the colour scheme and the kitchen appliances have been considered carefully. Oak stable doors open onto a large open plan living area. A thoroughly modern kitchen to one side and a comfortable dining and seating area to the other. Sky lights and a large picture window, with sea views, fills the space with light. This combined with the high vaulted ceiling gives this room a real sense of space and grandeur. The original wooden beams and whitewashed stone walls mean that the character of the old barn is also retained however.
The bedroom is a more romantic room naturally. Sumptuous bedding with tasteful bedside lamps and wardrobe etc creates a tranquil and relaxing space. A huge double shower and marbled walls means the adjoining bathroom is equally as luxurious. A welcome retreat after a long day, building sandcastles on the beach.
Most people visiting Tal-Y-Bont come to be beside the sea. And the cottage does not fail to provide that most traditional of British holidays. In the summer the village is transformed into a bustling coastal community. Fresh sea air carries with it the smell off newly lit BBQ’s and the sound of children’s laughter. It never rains in Wales. Honest! So don’t forget your flip flops. Socks optional.
Tal-Y-Bont is more of a sleepy little village during the winter months. A different but equally enjoyable experience. Deserted beaches and quiet country pubs gives cottage guests a chance to relax and unwind.
If you choose, there are lot’s of activities in the area throughout the year. Everything from adrenaline fuelled pursuits like white water rafting, mountain biking and gorge walking to more relaxing pastimes such as fishing, golf and bird spotting.
Geographically, the ever popular seaside town of Barmouth is a short drive to the south. Harlech with its historic castle and award winning links golf course is to the north. And the majestic mountains that rise up to the east of the village are crisscrossed with footpaths and bridleways for you to explore.

"Lovely barn conversion, warm & cosy also very clean & well equipped loved the shower. Ideal location for exploring the area with lots of lovely beaches close by. Hope to come back sometime. Thank you for all the goodies you left for us & we had a very enjoyable holiday."
"Had a lovely holiday. Bwthyn Bach Cottage is great,well equipped, comfy bed and fab shower. Love the contemporary feel and underfloor heating. The only suggestion I can offer to improve would be to replace the two seater settee with a corner unit or chaise to give a little extra seating room. The area is beautiful and the beaches wonderful, Molly and Max our dogs loved it! We would happily revisit."
"We had a lovely weeks holiday in this cottage. It was clean, modern and a pleasure to stay in. The local area is beautiful and the weather was hot!! We would happily stay here again."

"We have had an amazing time, gorgeous barn! Comfy, very clean and an amazing shower! We appreciated the welcome ‘goodies’ of local produce. The area is very beautiful and the barn was well placed for exploring. Lots to see and do:-) We even had good weather!
Our one and only comment would be to have a bigger sofa in the lounge area or two small. A bit of a squash on the one!
We will definately return to stay in the future!"

"Had a 2 night break here beginning of May 2013 fell in love with the cottage it’s like home from home, the finishing touches are amazing so immaculate with an eye for detail in regards to washing up liquid etc, the welcome hamper was a lovely touch it’s that immaculate it feels like you are the first people to ever stay. Are only regret was we had to come home will most certainly be returning very soon, with our very pampered pooch who also loved her new home for the weekend"
