Overview

Tucked away in the beautiful Cambrian Mountains, Ty ar y Mynydd ‘The House on the Mountain’ is a unique, self-catering rural retreat in the heart of Mid-Wales. Perfect for those seeking a tranquil and remote setting away from the world, this secluded holiday cottage is nestled in its own little valley with a trickling stream, breathtaking views to the Pumlumon mountain, and at night, clear, star-lit skies

The house on the mountain

Hospitality Award Winner in the 2017 'The Best Aber Welcome', Ty ar y Mynydd is a short eight-mile drive across rugged hills from the nearby village of Tal-y-bont, where you’ll find a shop, pub and restaurant. Otherwise, you won’t see another home in sight. This truly is rural living in spectacular surroundings.

As you step into this cosy cottage, you’re welcomed by warm, contemporary decor and a traditional wood-burning stove for cosy nights by the fire. A comfortable leather seating area and six-person dining table share the large, open-plan living space with space to rest up at the day’s end. Light pours in from the wild landscape outside the windows, with horizon-stretching views of the towering mountains and hills as they meet the sky.

A small porch seating area is a perfect nook for some time out with your favourite book or to admire the stream winding its way through the valley. The traditional, fully equipped kitchen embraces this unique home’s connection with nature, featuring light wood units and doors, and including a dishwasher, large fridge-freezer, oven and washing machine.

Bedrooms and bathrooms

The cottage boasts three bedrooms sleeping up to six guests, making it suitable for groups and families. The double enjoys expansive views of the Mid-Wales countryside. The second, twin room shares the same breathtaking views, while the final bedroom has a bunk bed, perfect for the kids to gaze upon the rugged mountains beyond. All rooms include a television for late-night movies and share the family shower room.

Around the property, you’ll discover one of the largest gardens in Wales, with 360-degree views of natural, unspoilt uplands. There’s an enclosed patio and terrace with a barbeque, perfect for dining as the sun goes down.

Practicalities

There is plenty of parking available and storage for your bikes. We can include a travel cot and high chair for your stay if required. The property includes fuel for the wood burning stove. We welcome one pet free of charge.

Special Note: The access road leading to the property requires a high clearance vehicle or 4x4. The owner can provide a suitable vehicle to families and couples on request and for a nominal charge. There are lakes and rivers in the grounds, so small children should be supervised at all times.

Reviews

If you want total isolation completely off grid but with all mod cons including solar panels and wifi this is the place to come.Neil from South Humberside - 10th October 2018
An excellent location & property, will definitely try and book again.Mr Rob Cohen - 3rd September 2018
The owner arranges to meet you and guide you to the property when you first arrive. He also gives clear details on how to use the off-grid power and water supplies. We cannot commend Evan highly enough for his kindness and care, particularly when our vehicle broke down, which could have been a disaster.Mr Alan Wilkins - 28th July 2018
Heaven!! As with all Evan's cottages, it's perfect. The views are stunning.

The children and the dog have enjoyed so much freedom. There have been tears about leaving. Love it!The Masters Family, West Midlands - 4th June 2017
Location, Location, Location!! A wonderful restful holiday. We'll be back. Thank you very much.Janet & Don Greig - Burton in Wirral - 6th May 2017
