Ty Mawr is a stone built 18th century farmhouse set in a large garden with a stream. It is two miles from the university town of Bangor, with its award winning Pontio Arts Centre, and is convenient for both the beautiful coast line and dramatic mountains of north Wales. Penrhyn Castle is a short walk from the house, and the Zip Ride at Bethesda is only a short drive away.
This is a wonderful area to explore, with great walks, the coastal path, bike trails, ancient castles and the beaches of Anglesey close by.
There is a frequent train service between Bangor, London, Birmingham , Manchester, and Holyhead.
We are a great over night stop for anyone travelling to or from Ireland.
For cyclists we have storage for bikes.
Packed lunches and evening meals can be provided if arranged in advance, at an extra cost per person of £5 for packed lunch and £8 for evening meal.
We have two bedrooms available, although only let one room at a time since both rooms share the same bathroom. One room also has a cot bed which is available for guests with a young child. Both rooms have double beds, wardrobes, dressing tables and tea and coffee making facilities.
We have sitting - out areas around the house, in the garden and courtyard, which guests may use, plus a second sitting room with log burner for the colder evenings.
Interaction with guests
We offer a warm welcome to all and can provide for special dietary requirements if given advance notice.
We can provide information about local places of interest, and suggest walks and activities which are available in this area.
Other things to note
As we have a dog we are unable to accommodate any other pets.
The "toddler bed" is a cot bed which is suitable for a child up to 2 years.
