About Tal y Braich

A cosy stone built cottage in the heart of Snowdonia, in the shadow of Tryfan, perfect for adventurers and walkers.

Tal y Braich is in the perfect location for a secluded mountain stay, situated in Snowdonia and close to the Carneddau Range. It offers heaps of Welsh charm, with a cosy wood burner and other features you’ll love such as a stunning Welsh slate floor. Outside, this cottage is perfect for summer gatherings, with a patio area for outside meals - you’ll want to spend every minute of your holiday soaking up the beautiful view and mountain backdrop.

Of course it’s a great spot for exploring the local mountain range too, and from the cottage you can head straight to Tryfan, this peak is recognisable by its classic pointed shape and rugged crags. Other outdoor adventurers are also well catered for with lakes for canoeing and kayaking and Plas y Brenin (the national mountain sports centre) nearby.

For those wishing to head a little further afield there are fun activities for the whole family including ‘Zip-world Adventure’ with its ‘Bounce Below’ activity. There are several local National Trust properties, including Penrhyn Castle, a 19th Century castle which has spectacular surroundings. You can also lose yourself in the greenery of Bodnant Garden,  a world- famous garden, home to national collections and champion trees.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
