Ty Beic has spacious grounds with magnificent views of the Berwyn mountains and farmland. When the weather is fine, you can enjoy a BBQ on your private patio or make the most of the long summer evenings around the fire pit while taking in the view and planning your next adventure. The only disturbance is the sound of sheep and birds. All guests have access to private parking, secure bicycle storage, bike wash facilities and a laundry which also has a shared freezer. Bed linen and towels are provided. Please see my listing for 'Ty Beic Holiday Cottages - The Stable' for information about my other cottage.More

About the neighbourhood
Ty Beic in the hamlet of Sarnau, 4 miles north east of Bala. Bala has everything you would expect to find in a small market town including banks and ATMs, Post Office, pharmacy, two small supermarkets, butchers, greengrocers and numerous pubs, cafes and restaurants and an excellent craft beer shop. Slightly further away (5 miles) is Tyddyn Llan, a Michelin starred restaurant in Llandrillo, and for spectacular views as well as delicious food I would recommend the Lake Vyrnwy Hotel (10 miles away). The 'local' is the Bryntirion Inn, 3 miles away in the village of Llandderfel. It's very friendly with great beer and good food. In the same village is Pale Hall, a country house hotel and fine dining restaurant.
Getting around
This is a rural community with very limited public transport so a car is a necessity. Trains from Birmingham, Shrewsbury, Chester and Cardiff stop at Ruabon and there is a bus service to Barmouth and Wrexham from Bala. There are three local taxi firms.
