ONE OF THE BEST PLACES TO RELAX & ENJOY
The three-bedroomed Ty Clyd. once the stables, hay-loft and tack room for the family country house, sleeps up to 5 or 6. Ty Clyd is Welsh for Cosy House and it lives up to its name, the living-room having a porch on its entrance side, and, on the opposite side, a small conservatory-cum-porch which leads into the small walled and gated garden and into the ground-floor bedroom which is plenty large enough for a pull-out, if needed, to supplement the two single beds there. A discarded shelved corner unit, found lying in a hayloft by the builders at the time of the conversions in 1961, was built into the living-room to make a painted wood focal point which more than compensates for the lack of fireplace.
IMAGES OF TY CLYD’S FOUR DOWNSTAIR ROOMS
The twin-bedded downstair bedroom, with revealed window arch and A-frame base across the mostly flat ceiling, has warm-coloured parquet flooring, and is spacious and light with windows either side, one of them looking over the garden to the Aran mountains 15 miles inland.
The compact but adequate kitchen and bathroom lie opposite each other off the living-room. The view at the kitchen sink transports you to the breezy heights of the mountain to which Brynygwin is pointed, Y Garn, the goal of one of the 30 or so walks which we have detailed and supply for use by guests. The double bedroom’s round window looks out over barn roofs to the New Precipice Walk which many who stay here rate the highlight of their visit for its stunning overview of the Mawddach estuary.
