Accommodation in Snowdonia
Encil Eryri (Snowdonia Hideaway) is set in the heart of Snowdonia National Park, between mountains and sea and close to the seaside towns of Tywyn and Aberdyfi. We offer quirky and luxurious accommodation options and glamping in the South Snowdonia National Park with coast and mountain views suitable for families and couples, or a larger family group of up to 8. The smallholding is located just above a request halt on the famous Tal Y Llyn steam railway, so it is possible to arrive by steam train, yes, really!
With a 20 minute walk to the estuary, local shop, and pub, it’s the perfect location to relax, restore and explore the wonderful beaches and historic sites of Snowdonia, Gwynedd. The Southern Snowdonia National Park is less explored, so you won’t be sharing it with hundreds of other tourists, like the North Snowdonia equivalent. In contrast, there is always space to be found and an empty beach, especially out of season. Encil Eryri is close to good cycle routes and it’s possible to enjoy flat open vistas and rolling hills, as well as craggy off road mountain bike descents, all within a stone’s throw of the cottages.
Spend your days exploring Snowdonia’s scenic mountain roads, hills tops and sheltered woodland walks. Then return to Encil Eryri for a cuppa and a read of a good book. Sample the warming flavours of Wales’ seasonal produce at the many award-winning local restaurants nearby. Set aside some time to get close to nature and connect with the big outdoors and those you love.
This year we have glamping in a beautiful bell tent in our 2 acre flower meadow, with wood fired hot tub.
The Crogloft is a converted hayloft situated in the upper garden, with its own private garden area, kitchenette, private bathroom and balcony for you to enjoy the elements of the great outdoors. It is perfect for stargazing as we are in a protected ‘dark skies’ region and fans of astronomy will love the rooflight to view the stars and sun rise from your bed. There is also an easy slide sun shade curtain when you want to block out the light. The Crogloft also has a fire pit and is furnished with a double bed and a double futon sofa bed, the kitchenette including hob, microwave and fridge-freezer. The Crogloft is warm and cosy for that feeling of connection to nature, with the luxury of staying out of the elements.
Sunset bell tent is a 5 m tent available in summer only in our wild flower meadow looking out to the Cambrian Bay and Cadair Idris. It has a fire pit and shower room with all you need for a comfortable glamping experience. It has a double bed and two camp beds. It is perfect as a base for adventures out to see all the attractions Snowdonia has to offer. Sample local seasonal food in the nearby restaurants or cook local produce in the well-equipped kitchen.
Tynllwyn Hen also has access to a BBQ area and bike storage as there are plenty of mountain bike and road trails nearby.
The Pottery is a converted milking parlour which has a double bedroom and sofa bed, shower room and kitchen at one end, and a separate access double bedroom with balcony and garden at the other. Guests can soak away in the wood fired hot tub with stunning views and have a BBQ with sunset views over Cambrian Bay. Both bedrooms look out to rolling hills, mountains and sheep fields, with their own enclosed gardens for letting the dog out. It has a BBQ, fire pit and garden furniture perfect for enjoying a beer with friends or family, with stunning sea and sunset views. A comfortable self catering cottage in the winter too, with cast iron radiators and a log burner for those cosy nights in. The Pottery has solar hot water heating- enjoy a low carbon shower with no fossil fuels required to heat the water during the summer. Perfect for an extended family break away or for a group of friends with children, The Pottery and it’s exceptional views make for a back to nature get away for walkers, outdoor enthusiasts and those seeking a quiet retreat.
Tiny but clean and nicely presented
accomodation, with fantastic views from a very comfortable bed or balcony!
We had a great time here, the views are stunning, location is ideal if you want to get off the beaten track and escape. The local shops/amenities are just 5 mins down the road. The added bonus of the hot tub helps after a day out in the mountains. It has all the facilities you’d need for a short stay, microwave, kettle, pots etc. it’s clean and tidy, the bed is comfy and the room was lovely and warm, it’s private from the main house and not overlooked. The pets are also super friendly. We really enjoyed our time here.
