About Mr and Mrs Kristian

Carol & Martin Kristian have a long association with this spectacular part of Wales, and love it. Carol has spent holidays in Tywyn since the age of 3 and her parents retired here in the 80's, creating a home from home for all the family. Martin,who is Australian, of Latvian parents, was soon introduced to the area by Carol and immediately fell in love with it. We live in Herfordshire but visit our cottages at least once a month. Martin is recently retired from his business and Carol still runs a childrens theatre school. We love nature and are very lucky to have a like minded wonderful team of local people on hand to ensure your stay is pleasant. We enjoy meeting our guests whenever possible and sharing our corner of heaven with you.

Mr and Mrs Kristian purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Mr and Mrs Kristian chose Wales

The cottages are full of atmosphere and reminders of bygone days as a working farm. This area is breath taking and also very diverse. There are beaches, forests, lakes, waterfalls, mountains all offering different experiences to suit all weather and all occasions.

Simply heaven!

What makes this cottage unique

Although Geufron is very close to Tywyn and all the amenities, in fact just a couple of minutes by car, it is away from traffic and people and surrounded by fields with magnificent views.

The 5 cottages do not impact on each other at all but are not remote. They are walking distance from the village shop and pub.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stunning views, wonderful walks. The cottages are so cosy & comfy the walk from Tywyn to Aberdovey along the beach was wonderful.

The cottage was very pretty, well looked after and cosy.

Soon got used to the steps and the laundry was a godsend.

The view was amazing, both across the valley (train watching) and towards the sea. Did not use the pool. WiFi was a bit weak, but quite usable. Sorry to leave.

Owner's Response: So glad that you enjoyed the stay. The Talyllyn Railway really is special it was the first preserved railway in the world and is run by volunteers. It was the inspiration for Rev Audry's famous Thomas The Tank Engine stories. He was a volunteer here. There is a little museum at Tywyn Wharf in his honour showing a replica of his study and some original books. We hope to see you again. Carol and Mary

Great location, dogs welcome

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, well equipped, stone cottage with amazing views. Convenient for Tywyn and Talyllyn railway. Excellent walks from cottage, dog friendly, but it is sheep country so dog has to be on lead. Free car parking next to beach at Tywyn. Beach walk from Tywyn to Aberdovey (3.5 miles) is suitable for dogs off lead. Our second visit, will go again.

Beautiful mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottages are beautiful, comfy and well-equipped. Old-fashioned style but all mod-cons (showers, heating, dishwashers etc). The cottage at the top has an outdoor pool and the views down across Tywyn to the coast are beautiful and on a clear night there are great views of the milky way. It's good to have a car, but there is a train station in Tywyn (about 3 miles away).

We've been renting a number of the cottages over a weekend with a group of friends each year for the last few years and we always have a good time. The owners are always friendly and helpful. Recommended.
