About Ty Cipar

A remote spot within one of the best stargazing sites in Snowdonia, Ty Cipar cottage is a true escape from urban life.

Hidden in the secluded Migneint moorland at the heart of Snowdonia, Ty Cipar offers the perfect retreat for those who want to get off the beaten track and reconnect with nature.

The wild, windswept landscape of the moor runs right to the doorstep of this cottage. It’s the perfect place to sit and absorb the sights and sounds of this Site of Special Scientific Interest, rich in both plant and bird life. Although six miles from the nearest town, other stargazers may occasionally park their cars nearby as it’s a top spot for dark Snowdonia skies.

The cottage has a traditional interior, complete with cosy log burner and games room in the adjoining converted barn. On the ground floor you’ll find a dining room, lounge, kitchen, and bathroom, with narrow stairs leading up to a master bedroom and twin above. The cottage’s electricity is supplied by a generator and therefore there are limited electrical items in the cottage.

Outside is a small garden and though parking is available in front of the cottage, it is advisable to arrive within daylight hours and bring a torch given its remote location. 

The compact nature of this cottage and quirks of its historic build, such as low beams and steep stairs, does mean it’s unsuitable for children or those with mobility restrictions.

For those looking to unplug and explore Snowdonia, Ty Cipar’s location provides direct access to the National Park’s dramatic and varied landscapes. The Migneint is a popular walking destination providing numerous hiking opportunities without ever having to get into a car. The town of Betws y Coed is perfect for local amenities.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
