“Great place to stay to explore North Wales”

I was working away in Wales from January until June 2016, and rather than stay in a hotel, I looked for local holiday lettings. Luckily for me I found Ty Menai.
The cottage itself is set in a beautiful location, it is quiet and surrounded by stunning views which creates a calming/tranquil environment for you to relax. I often looked forward to arriving back from work as I was always welcomed by the farmer’s horses, lambs, calves and cattle whilst driving up the driveway. I found the surroundings so peaceful and loved nothing more than getting back and sitting outside with a nice glass of wine, listening to the birds.
The inside of the cottage is charming with it retaining features from its previous life as cattle shed only adding to its character. The cottage it kitted out with everything you would need, for me it became a real home from home. The only thing I brought with me was a docking station and a selection of DVDs, something worth considering as the weather can be unpredictable.
During my stay I stayed a number of weekends and had various people come to visit, my husband, parents, girlfriend’s etc. all of whom commented on the stunning location and delightful property. For daytime activities I’d recommend the Rhyd Ddu trail Snowdon, Bear Grylls Ribrides (we did Puffins and Seals at Menai Bridge), Beddgelert is a lovely place to visit as is Caernarfon and its castle. Caernarfon is also close enough if you wanted to get a taxi to go out for dinner and a few drinks. For food the best restaurant I found was Hebog (Beddgelert) but you will have to book if you are visiting on the weekend, others that I would recommend are Dylan’s (Menai Bridge) and Blas (Caernarfon).
Over my 4 months at the property I found the owners Sian and Steve to be welcoming, attentive and very caring. As a lady stopping away from home and away from family for quite a period of time I was apprehensive. Sian and Steve were the perfect hosts. The cottage was cleaned to perfection every week with fresh bedding, and flowers in place to welcome me back on a Monday. Anything I needed was no trouble to them at all, and I can’t thank them enough for making me feel so at home.
I’ve been away from the cottage for a few weeks now and I already miss it. I’ve booked to return next year with my husband and we are really looking forward to it.

Thank you so much for the fabulous comments and booking with Best of Wales. Great to hear that even as you were working away we were able to make you feel at home. Sian and Stephen are wonderful hosts and being on the farm but with your own space is a great mix. Good to hear about the places you visited and the restaurants as well.
Very pleased that you are coming back to stay with us in Ty Menai again, that is excellent news.

“Lovely cottage in Fab location.”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Ty Menai is a lovely cottage in a great location. Great for walking, exploring, and visiting North Wales.
The cottage is beautiful, with wildlife all around.
Just a couple of things would make it even better. The bed was not too comfortable, the bedding was thin, and the kitchen was a bit sparce. A few more home comforts, would make it exceptional.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 6 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

a beautiful property in a lovely setting. Decorated to a high standard and very cosy. Could actually live in the converted barn all the time.

Thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would definitely stay here again. Wish we were here for a longer period of time.

Looking to come again for a longer holiday and will definitely book this place.

The cottage was just perfect and in an amazing location. Everything you need and spotlessly clean, just perfect for relaxing and enjoying the countryside. The local wildlife is a joy too, from woodpeckers and squirrels to cows and sheep.

Totally peaceful away from it all, and yet close enough to Snowdonia, Caernarfon, Anglesey and a host of other attractions and activities, all under 30-40 minutes drive away, so just brilliant for all kinds of activities, with or without children, and for any weather.

The owners are great too, ready help if you need anything and there to make your stay perfect, along with wine and milk in the fridge when we arrived, what more could you ask for.

Worse bit? We had to leave..... :)

Thank you for your comments and happy you enjoyed the cottage. A great deal of thought went into the renovation and it offers a chance to escape.
Lots to do within a short drive such as the walking and climbing in Snowdon or maybe the beaches on Anglesey. There are some great art galleries for a browse as a change as well.
Great that you enjoyed our warm Welsh welcome also
Hope to welcome you back again soon
