Tyddyn Iolyn is an idyllic, oak beamed Welsh farmhouse thought to be built in the 16th century and steeped in local history. In an elevated, peaceful location between the mountains of the Snowdonia National Park and the unspoilt beaches of the Llyn Peninsula, Tyddyn Iolyn boasts the most dramatic open views.
Our five individual en-suite rooms offer the character and charm of converted old farm buildings and are privately situated in the courtyard of the farmhouse, giving our guests privacy and access at any time, and providing quality bed and breakfast accommodation with a difference.
Once a traditional working farm, Tyddyn Iolyn is still surrounded by farmland and is home to our two retired donkeys. Sited in around three acres with mountain and sea views, we have lots of open space for guests to enjoy. There is an old, walled, kitchen garden with low box hedging, a cut flower garden, soft fruits, poly tunnel and greenhouse, and our two fields where the donkeys have their stable. The turn off from the public road is half a mile away so Tyddyn Iolyn is quiet and secluded, yet only minutes away from the historic, seaside town of Criccieth and the busy harbour town of Porthmadog. There are many independently run restaurants and pubs close by. The famous Italianate village at Portmeirion, the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland steam railways, Caernarfon castle, Abersoch, Black Rock Sands and the pretty village of Beddgelert are all close by and we are only a short distance from beaches and some of the best walking and climbing routes in Snowdonia and the Llyn peninsula.
