Located in Arthog, not far from the historic market town of Dolgellau and the coastal village of Fairbourne boasting a miniature steam railway, summer ferry to Barmouth with its pubs, restaurant, shops, sandy beach and craggy cliffs. Join many footpaths or cycle routes along the coast, Mawddach estuary and across the countryside in Snowdonia National Park. With so many activities from swimming to sailing, fishing to horse riding, walking to cycling, and the host of attractions to visit such as King Arthurs Labyrinth, Portmeirion, Welsh castles and Zip World, there is always something to see and do. A perfect location to relax and explore the best North Wales has to offer.

Park your car and walk up the private grass and slate footpath between two fields to reach this delightful detached rural retreat. Open the red front door and enter this lovely traditional cottage with exposed beams and inglenook fireplace in the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. To your right is the creatively designed kitchen with dining table, and if you decide to eat in, the kitchen is well-equipped with electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and all the thoughtful little extras creating a lovely space to cook in. After dinner, relax on the chairs and sofa in the lounge area, plan your activities or watch a film on the TV. For cosy nights in light the wood burner and lose yourself in a good book. Beyond the kitchen and down some steps you will find the stylish ground floor bathroom with bath, separate shower and WC, just perfect to relax in a bubble bath and dry off with soft towels. Beyond the kitchen and bathroom and up the boat steps you will find the mezzanine single bedroom. Up the narrow steep stairs to the first floor is the king-size bedroom and a door to the left leads you to one of the single bedrooms. Due to the nature of the conversion there is limited head room in parts of the bedroom. All the bedrooms have lovely views over the garden and towards the Mawddach Estuary and beyond.

This detached property nestles into the hillside with fabulous views across the Mawddach Estuary, mountains in the distance and out to the sea beyond. The natural garden has lots of places to sit and relax, the garden is equipped with table and chairs to enjoy morning coffee, afternoon tea and al fresco dining, or maybe fire up the charcoal BBQ. There is parking in the layby for several cars, just 100 yards below the property. Please note the property is accessed via the walled footpath, you will need to carry your luggage up the path which can be slippery in wet weather, strong shoes or walking boots are a must, though it is well worth the effort for this unique experience. 1 dog welcome to be kept on lead whilst walking up to the property due to livestock close by. Sorry, not suitable for guests with limited mobility.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

We have just spent the most wonderful week in this stunning traditional cottage. Ty Coch is very well equipped and is in a fantastic position with great views from every window. The walk up to the cottage from the parking area requires a bit of effort but is well worth it, try to travel light if possible. There are walks & cycling straight from theRead more cottage. The Mawddach trail is 5 minutes away and takes you over the bridge to Barmouth or Dolgellau. Thanks for the provisions. Fantastic cottage! Hide

Lovely, characterful cottage in an excellent location. We did some fantastic walks straight from the door, and nearby. Great to be so close to the estuary, as well as mountains and woodland. It is a steepish, short walk up to the cottage, but well worth it! We would definitely like to return.

Lovely, extremely well-appointed cottage in a beautiful and secluded location. (As stated, there is a steep walk up to the cottage). Great walks directly from the house and many more further afield. Fairbourne beach at sunset an unexpected treat! We had fantastic week and would love to return.

If you are trying to decide to book or not , I recommend you do , u will not be disappointed me and my family have just returned after just under a week there, as the weather turned towards the end of the week.

The cottage was lovely, really cosy and full of character in a tucked away location with stunning views. It was exactly what we were hoping for and we felt at home straight away. The walking and cycling straight from the cottage was great and the owners had put together lots of info on recommended local walks and walks further away, as well as lotsRead more of guides and maps. This was really helpful and made planning our walks and days out easy. Hide

Stunning location, perched on the hillside with ever-changing view out towards the sea, sunny garden, and amazing sunsets. Cottage very sympathetically renovated, combining tradition, character and comfort. The quirks - its own footpath from the road, the steep stairs up to the bedroom - just add to its charm, and everything works, including Wi-Fi.Read more Great walks from the door, and many attractions further afield. A very special place. Hide

Stayed at the cottage in July/August for a week with my wife and 6 year old daughter. Be prepared for a bit of a hike up to the cottage, its a very short walk but uphill. However when you get there the place is magical, remote and so very picturesque and peaceful. The cottage is clean and there was milk and butter provided, these little touches makRead moree all the difference. The views are splendid and the garden is lovely to sit back and relax in. 5 star rating and very highly recommended! Hide
