(near Barmouth) - Two bedroom barn conversion in the popular seaside village of Tal Y Bont.
Cornel-Glyd is one of a three cottage barn conversion in the popular seaside village of Tal-Y-Bont near Barmouth. This modern and stylish two bedroom one storey cottage offers a great base for family holidays by the sea.
Oak stable doors open onto a large open plan living space. An elegant white kitchen with matching appliances, including dishwasher, creates a bright and cheery mood. On the other side of the room, leather sofas, large flat screen TV and under-floor heating ensures a comfortable stay for all guests.
The bathroom is also immaculately done. A large and powerful shower with marbled walls adds that touch of luxury. The bedrooms are equally sumptuous. One large double room and one smaller twin room, both on the ground floor and both with sea views. It’s a very professional conversion. Everything has been immaculately laid out and nothing has been left to chance.
There's a large patio area outside with a BBQ all very safe and secure for children. The cottage owners have also teamed up with a nearby caravan park and cottage guests now have free access to all the parc's leisure facilities including an indoor heated swimming pool and a ramp for launching small boats into the bay. Don't forget to register your boat with he harbor master at Barmouth. Plenty of parking at the cottage for cars and boats.
Most people visiting Tal-Y-Bont naturally 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 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.

"Would recommend Cornel Glyd very highly. The cottage is very well equipped and in a quiet child friendly and safe location. The owners live behind the cottages and are a lovely couple with fantastic kids.
Location is excellent for very nice beach, Barmouth and Harlech – plenty of walking and cycling in the area.
No complaints at all!! Give it a go"

"Great little cottage in a lovely location – Cornel Glyd is well equipped and is a great base to explore this part of wales. It is surprisingly quiet, despite being amongst a number of caravan sites and is only a short walk down to the beach. It was really lovely sitting outside at 8pm with a chilled glass of wine and watching the sun go down.
The kids absolutely loved the Sunnysands swimming pool, which was very child friendly and was lovely and warm. We spent well over an hour there each day and were lucky that it was very quiet out of season. Also recommend the waterfalls near Llanbedr for a really great walk and of course the sand dunes at Benar Beach for running up and down for many an hour. Shell Island is also worth a visit for the spectacular views.
All in all a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday. Am already looking forward to another visit in the not too distant future."
"Hi, just arrived home after a five night stay in Cornel glyd. We were very impressed with this lovely little cottage, it came with all mod cons, underfloor heating, beautiful comfy beds, fantastic shower that you just didnt want to leave. The place was spotless. We could see the sea from the windows, and the beach is just a short walk away .This place is in a great position with a train station a minute away that goes along the coast. The Isle Of Bryn pub is a ten minute drive away and the food is great. The weather we had was fairly good, . We had a lovely holiday and we definitely return."

"A really lovely cottage, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the location is great and given the weather appreciated the underfloor heating. Would recommend the cottage but not the weather!"

"We stayed over the Easter week and had suprisingly good weather. This meant that the sea (which is about a 5 minute stroll away) looked turquoise in the sun and crystal clear, whereas the mountains to the rear were snow-capped. The scenery really was fantastic and we never tired of seeing the snowy mountains which were often breathtaking. The barn conversion was very tastefully done and provided a real home from home. My wife particularly enjoyed the under floor heating throughout. The shower temprature was occasionally hit or miss, but that was about our only criticism. The pub is within strolling distance and the ales on offer were expertly cared for and changed regularly. The food from the pub was nice, but overpriced. Overall then, it was a lovely, relaxing break made all the better by the weather and the scenery."
