Tyn Llyn


Tyn Llyn is situated high in the hills by the lake “Llyn Creini”. A very remote location and one of the quietest places on the planet. Essentially it is “off grid” there is no mains electricity. There are now solar panels charging batteries for 12v lighting but we don’t have a TV. We do have a form of wi-fi which may be good enough for your own devices, we were not talking about gaming here though! It is a new system so in the trial period, there is a USB connection for charging your devices so you may stay connected that way. Many guests prefer to keep to using candles and are there for the surrounding countryside, night sky and peace and quiet. You have the lake and 600 acres of private land to explore. Have a look at the clip for a rather flattened view (drone a bit too high!). It takes you on past the farmhouse to the fort “Caer Euni”. Where the land and the lake get their name.

The space
So much of the space is outside really, but downstairs there is a cosy sitting room with the essential wood burner and small kitchen. Upstairs a double bedroom with plenty of rugs on the bed and a small bathroom with conventional suite, but read on!

Breaking news!

We have been making the most our time! I am typing this on New Year’s Eve and still plenty to do but it will be ready in time for our first bookings! Pictures will follow but we are in the process of extending Tyn Llyn into the barn on the side. We are not disturbing the owl that lives in the loft space but we are taking half of the ground floor of what was the cow shed. This is to build a new entrance with shower, loo and a wood burning sauna! We don’t want to change the character of the place but this will be a real treat!

Back to the description!

Heating is all from the wood burner and it is a good idea to keep that going whatever time of year, we do supply logs and give you a good starter basket, but you can also forage for wood.

The water supply is from the lake and for washing plates and the loos etc. So you collect tap water from us on your way past in a 5 gallon container.

Guest access
You are on your own with the lake in front of you. Hills, mountain and valleys to explore. There is a kayak you can use and a large new rowing boat, coarse fishing and swimming all possibilities! We may be able to lend you mountain bikes.

Other things to note
We live over the hill at Caerau Uchaf and are there to help. We run a small cafe at our open gardens in the season so you may want to walk over and say hello sometime. We also have a washing machine and tumble drier for your use.
