About the property

House in Dyffryn Ardudwy, Nr. Barmouth, Snowdonia National Park, North Wales - Tregantle has its own stream running through the private garden!

Tregantle is hidden from the road but still within minutes walk of the local shops just a stroll away down the lane. Harlech Castle and beach (UNESCO World Heritage site), Portmeirion, Shell Island and Snowdon are great days out. Our newly decorated luxury home is tucked away in the village of Dyffryn Ardudwy, which is in between Barmouth and Porthmadog. This is a great location within easy reach of many amazing beaches, shops, bars, restaurants and harbours. Woodland walks directly from the rear of the property.

Tipped to be the Adventure capital of the World we now have the all new 'Surf Snowdonia', 'Bounce Below' and 'Zip Wire' attractions just a short distance it really has so much to offer the whole family, no matter what age! It also continues to be a haven for walkers and cyclists.

Garage is large enough to store bikes, kayaks and anything else you need to bring for your adventures!

Pleasure flights are also now operated locally for a birds eye view of the wonderful coastline and mountain ranges.

Steam trains are also available, as is the Cambrian coastline railway.

Short Breaks available, send an enquiry through stating your required dates and I will try to accommodate you!

About Elen

Having built the house for my father 10 years ago after he fell in love with the area and moved from Somerset.

We too have fallen in love with this special place, where we find ourselves able to unwind and have fun with our family.

We have been holidaying in North Wales for 21 years, initially encouraged by my father who moved to Dyffryn.We soon came to the conclusion that it was a fabulous holiday destination for everyone. And have been enjoying the house and surrounding area with our 3 boys at any opportunity.

Why Elen chose Gwynedd - Snowdonia

A wonderful house in a great location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Amazing property in a wonderful location - we will certainly be back soon.

Kath & family, Solihull

We booked Tregantle for a family reunion and had a great time, lovely spacious house and setting. Also very convenient to walk to shops, pubs and the beach. Weather was great too and lots to explore. Thanks we are already planning our return trip.

Wonderful place to relax

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to relax after a full days climbing. Has everything you need to wind down, from the games room to the board games to just being able to take it easy in front of the tv or to stroll on the beach. Clean, comfortable and easily accessible to Snowdonia national park. Highly recommended.

Spacious family home and ideal base to see Wales

  • 5 of 5

The house was large and spacious for our party that had 5 adults, 5 kids (4-8yrs) and a baby. Comfortable beds, good facilities including the games table in the garage that the kids loved.

Elen the owner was very communicative and responded quickly to emails and texts and always very helpful. She suggested some great places to see and place to eat - Nineteen 57 for Sunday lunch is a must.

The local beaches are not walk-able but only a 5 mins drive. There is a pub local you can walk too that caters for families and does OK food. Within a few minutes walk from the property is a Spar that does most things you need and an off licence / post office.

One slight negative was the property doesn't really have a garden. The only outside space is the front garden in the picture but this wasn't an issue for us as we spent most of the day out and about.

All in all the property and location was great for the 4 days we stayed there and we managed to fill our days. Had we gone in the summer we could of spent longer on beaches etc but it was still worth a visit.

What a fantastic holiday house

  • 5 of 5

Myself and family stayed for a well earned summer break. On arrival we where very impressed with the property. This is a lovely place with everything we needed for a family holiday. No noise at night so sleeping in our Super King sized bed was very relaxing. The house is very spacious and very well thought out. We would love to return again next year.

A repeat holiday and will go again

  • 5 of 5

A great stay (Our fifth year here). This year the property has been enhanced by a pool / air hockey & table tennis table in the garage. The kids had great fun. Although our 5th year, we still have plenty of ventures we have not undertaken so we will be back. Great facilities in great location. Many thanks.

Amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week here with family. Ten of us in total from baby to 70+.The house is amazing. Everything you need and more. No squabbles over the bathroom as plenty to go round. The grandchildren loved the space. Games room popular with the children but a bonus for my brother - to say he was excited was an understatement ( a big kid at heart and he's nearly 50!!) Played the game 'Whatever next' and laughed till we hurt - from being a slug to fighting a crocodile - a definite must lol. The beds were fantastic - very big and comfy - if only i could take one home!

Near to the beach and local shops. A good base to access Barmouth and Harlech. Only had communication via e mail and text but have to say Elen was an absolute star - even had a message saying we could go in before 4pm which was great.

If you want a quiet relaxing place to stay tgats like home from home then Tregantle Retreat is definitely the place to be. Would highly recommend and will definitely be doing a return visit 😊

Owner's Response: Wow! What an amazing review, thank you. You are all by far our best guests so far, from booking last year to leaving the house in good order and treating Tregantle Retreat with the respect it deserves. We will be delighted to welcome you all back next year and I'll even visit to give your brother a game of pool if he wants me to show him how it's done lol! It's good not to see us, as it means no issues. Thanks again, Elen

The Perfect Week

  • 5 of 5

Tregantle Retreat was awesome! The perfect getaway for a group of teens like myself and my friends. The house was clean, spacious and it had a pool table!! If you're looking for a chilled holiday in North Wales Tregantle Retreat is the place for you! The location of Tregantle was perfect, only a 10 minute walk away from the beach and a 35 minute drive away from Zip World. I honestly can't praise this house enough, me and my friends will definitely be returning next year.
