Gwern Tyno

An isolated bungalow close to the owner’s farmhouse and converted from an old farm building, GwernTyno near Colwyn Bay, Clwyd, is a coastal cottage perfect as a home base for exploring North Wales.

This rural cottage within an easy drive of Snowdonia and North Wales beaches in the picturesque and peaceful Nant-Y-Glyn Valley. It enjoys a sunny aspect and wonderful rural views across woodland and open farmland. The two-bedroom cottage includes a well-equipped kitchen, three-piece bathroom, and sitting room with dining area that provides access to a patio and large garden. It comes with ample private parking, electric panel heaters and supplementary heaters, and washing machine.

GwernTyno sits in the heart of good walking country with many footpaths on its doorstep. It also is a short drive from the Welsh coastline and the resort town of Colwyn Bay with its many attractions, including sandy beaches, promenade, Welsh Mountain Zoo, and restaurant owned by celebrity chef Bryn Williams.




beautiful, peaceful location

Th cottage was lovely and the owner couldn't have been more charming and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our week here and would highly recommend it . A rural setting but within a short drive of all amenities.

Peace, quiet and seclusion guaranteed

A lovely cottage in a beautiful spot, with very friendly and helpful owners. It is just a shame it is over half a mile up a steep and very winding single track road, which was blocked one day by sheep, and the next day by a lorry collecting logs which held us back from our day out by half an hour each time. If it were more accessible, or we were more used to reversing down hills and around bends, we would definitely return.

Friendly and welcoming

The cottage has everything you might need, and children are very welcome.
It lovely and quiet area and the views are fantastic it's just a short drive to the town and sea front.

Stayed in LLandudno instead!

The photos on the internet are seriously misleading, the owners home isn't just 'close to' the cottage, it's on top of it, owners have a direct view in through the kitchen window. Kitchen floor covered in slug trails; nasty! Tried to contact owner on two numbers but no answer even though we were expected.
We had had a long drive, were tired and upset so we went to Llandudno for the night and drove home the next morning.
Worst non-holiday ever, wish we'd stayed at home.

Quiet, comfortable cottage

Our stay here exceeded our expectations. It is a comfortable, well furnished, modernized, small cottage, adjacent to the owner's house. We walked the local footpaths and country roads, enjoyed the challenge of driving the narrow road out of Colwyn Bay, read books and generally relaxed. The owner was very helpful and we plan on staying there again on our next trip to the area.


No good for an Autumn or Winter break.

Lovely cottage, beautiful views, friendly & helpful owner.

My daughter & myself spent a really pleasant week here recently. My daughter has special needs & is very fussy but she loved it here! Very clean cottage, extremely comfortable, all mod cons. Amazing views. Very helpful - but not intrusive - owner. I was initially worried about the road leading up to the property but didn't find it a problem. Close to many of North Wales' attractions.

Lovely accommodation in a beautiful location

The accommodation was clean comfortable and well equipped. Cottage is next to owners' property but felt private with living room patio doors and seating area outside overlooking open countryside. Perfect location with beautiful walks through nearby woods and easy base to reach local beaches, stores and for exploring surrounding area and Anglesey. We had no issue with the lane, there were lots of places to give way but we didn't need to use them. Would love to stay again.


Had a great time, well equipped and clean cottage, great location, perfect for a relaxing time will defo recommend to others

Mr Shone

Great Holiday again, very good situation for exploring North Wales. Very quiet location in Colwyn Bay with lovely views, but not too far from shops. Very nice owners , would recommend to anyone needing to get away from it all. Excellent for wildlife, especially birds.

Mr Scattergood

An ideal location for touring area but if you have young children or teenagers nothing for them to do and its too far for them to walk at night to the town. Taxi service is good and reasonable. The Farmers market on Thursdays although limited was very good and good value.

Mr Barr

The A55! Able to access anywhere very quickly and easily.

Mrs Kelly

We had a lovely time and the site of the cottage (on an old farm) was very children friendly. It was a good location to use as a base to explore the towns and attractions of North West Wales.
