I don’t know actually know where to begin to describe how gorgeous this place is, the house is beautiful, immaculate and has literally everything you need to have a perfect stay and the surrounding area in general is stunning also. Every person I dealt with through the planning was so lovely and helpful. I couldn’t recommend it enough! We can’t wait to go back already it’s such a special place! We had the most unbelievable time and made great memories on the hen do, I can’t thank you enough for everythingSarah. P. said...May 2022
This place is amazing just spent 2 nights on my daughters hendo and it was simply fantastic in every way , this house has everything and more from the amount of spacious rooms to the hot tub sauna cinema & studio , we hired yoga class cocktail making class and a chef to cook and i would highly recommended each one , we wished we had stayed longer as the house is so comfortable and even with 22 ladies we still had plenty of space , hopefully will hire the house again in the future for some special occasions why go abroad when The big house by the sea has everything you need xJoanne.

We had the most amazing time celebrating our Hen last weekend! This house is absolutely amazing and so perfect for a big party. It’s also surrounded by the most amazing views !
The Studio is a great place to have a groove and we also made the most of the jacuzzi and sauna (which has the most fabulous panoramic window!).
We also recommend using The Social Pantri offered by the house .. Jacquie put on an excellent Mexican night for us ! (See photos!)
Also… if your looking for a pizza van that will come to the house, we used Bonni’s Pizza who were great and the pizzas were fantastic !
So thrilled we chose this house for our hen venue and would 100% recommend !Hannah. P. said...April 2022
Well I actually do not know where to start with this review! We spent Friday to Monday last week at big house by the sea for my hen weekend, and what a weekend it was! The house and views are amazing even more so in real life. I literally lived on cloud 9 all weekend, it was spectacular! I wish I’d have known about the place before I booked my wedding because I’d have 100% booked it! I have some amazing videos of the views that some of my party had taken but I can’t seem to upload them on the reviews, I will try to pin to my Facebook page and set them to public so by all means take a look. It is such a beautiful place and house really is something special! Well done to the team! Thankyou so much for the memories…. KatieKatie.T. said...April 2022
We stayed at Big House By The Sea the weekend of the 25th - 28th March for my 50th Birthday. The house is amazing, stunning views and everything you need all under one roof. The facilities we had inside the house were fantastic , the dining room , the bar, the kitchen , the living room , all the bedrooms , the Ice machine (a personal fave), the hot tub , the sauna and the icing on the cake the studio. I was lucky enough to have everything planned for me by my friends Laura and her Team. I had my own rave on the Friday, Saturday night Party night with a video of This is your Life and a pamper night. All enjoyed by me and all my Family and Friends and I will cherish the memories forever. Thanks to all who came to celebrate with me and to the Big House Team for all making my 50th a Birthday one to remember. Love you all xxAdele. M. said...April 2022
We have just returned from my best friends hen party and what a weekend it was! The house is fabulous, the views are absolutely stunning! There is nothing more we could’ve asked for! I just want to say a massive thank you to Jacquie at The Social Pantri for cooking us the most beautiful Italian meal on the Sunday. We had vegetarians and lactose free amongst the guests and nothing was too much trouble! It really did finish off the weekend fabulously! We all can’t wait to return!Abbie H. said... March 2022
We rented this house for my sister’s hen party and it was absolutely amazing! The location is out of this world and the amenities are top class. The kitchen is incredibly well equipped, the cinema was great and the outside space and studio make the experience incredibly special. I’d return in a heartbeat.Lizzie H. said...March 2022
Just returned from a memorable 4 night stay at Big House By The Sea. Wow what a place and where do I start! Location out of this world, view of the sea immense. Outside facilities fantastic, sauna, Hot Tub, Football & Basketball pitch, the decking seating area is a perfect spot facing the sea, what a joy. The inside of the house is incredible, the cinema a great touch. The kitchen, dining and bar areas every detail had been thought of, there was nothing that I needed that wasn’t already there. The Pantry area is so handy with large groups of people. We have stayed in many large houses and it is rare to get the standard of appliances that are available. A shout out to Jacqui who helped my children to organise a surprise birthday party for me in the best venue ever, “The Studio’ at the back of the property. I cannot recommend staying here enough and would ideally like to keep it as my little secret, but I cannot, it is without doubt a place to shout out about. The best Big House that we have ever stayed in. Well done Linda & Jacqui. Best wishes, TinaTina L. said...Feb 2022
Where do I begin, the house is spotless, beds are comfy, everything that you think you would need to have a thoroughly good weekend is there. We spent Friday evening in the studio with a buffet and DJ to celebrate my 39+1. Saturday some of our group of 30 chilled in the sauna, hot tub, cinema, some went to the beach, some went to the pub. Everyone filtered to the in-house pub slowly but surely and we set up the dining room for a curry night and Karaoke.
We had an absolute ball! If you need a weekend of switching off and relaxing without having to go anywhere this is your place. Beautiful setting, brilliant hosts, great communication and we have rebooked for next year the day after we got home.
This place is absolutely amazing , myself and 22 friends spent the weekend celebrating my 60th Birthday at the Big House and could not of wished for a better venue. Just fantastic. Jacquie provided a fabulous buffet , all homemade and absolutely delicious. The studio , hot tub and sauna exceeded our expectations too. Would highly recommend this place.Sandra N. said...Jan 2022
Had the best time staying at Big House by the Sea. I celebrated my 60th birthday with lovely friends. The house was absolutely perfect! Lots of attention to detail and loads of fun things to do both inside and outside of the house! Will definitely come back for more!Teresa K. said...Jan 2022
The moment you pull in to The Big House by the Sea you are amazed at the beautiful view and surroundings. The house is huge and steeped in history, it has everything you could possibly need. The rooms are spacious and well decorated. The kitchen is well equipped and the dining room is big enough to hold many people. It is where we spent most of our time, as it sits perfectly between the kitchen and bar. The studio is a great space and it was perfect for us to set up a party in, such a lovely addition to the home.
We could have spent a lot longer enjoying this beautiful house, it’s a winner and all of our guests agreed. We will be back x
A big thank you to everyone at Big House By The Sea! We absolutely loved our stay in September ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Linda & Laurence were a pleasure to work with. Nothing was too much trouble; communication was fast and always very helpful. From beginning to the end it was absolute joy and so lovely meeting you both. Aside from being wonderful people, their accommodation, facilities have obviously been created with thought, care and love, and the result is a very special experience at the house. We would whole-heartedly recommend a yoga retreat here to others. The accommodation is clean and cosy with extra little touches to bring a little bit of luxury to the stay.
The yoga studio is beautiful with fabulous views; we made full use of the hot tub, sauna, cinema room, fire pit and of course the bar! Thank you for recommending Wonder Bar, Beth’s cocktail workshop was just what we all needed after all the lockdowns. The cocktail workshop was so well organised, great fun and informative. We can’t recommend The Wonder Bar enough!
We would wholeheartedly recommend a yoga retreat here to others. It was so good the first thing we did when we got back was email to book dates for our next one! See you all soon.
Love Daljit & Gill
Absolutely incredible venue, the photos really don’t do it justice! Views were amazing, the house itself fantastic, comfy beds and includes more than enough self-contained facilities to keep you occupied without leaving the premises! Despite turning to a UK location because of covid travel restrictions, we were so impressed - the whole group commented that they felt like we were on holiday and the bride loved every moment! Perfect place for a hen - accommodated 30 of us in total, we had masses of space but also rooms we could all be together in and we enjoyed the entire experience. We would just like the thank the whole team there and Linda especially, who made the whole process stress free and seamless from start to finish. The communication was great, responses fast and information always readily available, could not fault anything. 100% recommend!Becky Sheeran - Nov 2021
I’m not sure where to begin to adequately review the Big House by the Sea. There really aren’t enough positive things I could say about every aspect of this beautiful venue. I had planned a large family gathering for a special birthday at Ty Gwyn in April 2020 which of course could not go ahead. We had moved to another date at the end of 2020 which still couldn’t go ahead, finally settling on September 2021. I just knew there wouldn’t be a better venue for our whole family so did everything to make it happen. I am so glad I didn’t give up!! The house itself is impressive from the moment you approach the driveway. The uninterrupted view from the beautiful deck is simply breathtaking. Externally, every little detail has been thought about from comfortable cushions at the outside seating area and lovely barbecue areas to sumptuous hot tub and sauna, not to mention the amazing fire pit. There was plenty of outdoor equipment (e.g.basketballs, frisbees etc) to use in the amazing grounds and basketball court. The attention to detail and fabulousness internally is no different. From the moment we arrived, the whole family were delighted and kept discovering lots of little extras and fun stuff like the dressing up clothes and the games inside for the more active/younger guests. We had a wide range of ages in our family group. There really was something for everyone. The accessible room was perfectly set up for the wheelchair user in our group. All the rooms are tastefully done and very comfortable. Again, no detail missed. Linda was the perfect host answering every query and random request brilliantly. We really couldn’t fault anything. We used a few of the services on offer. Cath from Bwyty Bach produced an amazing buffet for us, Seren from the Bubbling Stove catered our celebration meal which was really enjoyed by everyone and we had Liam Dixon come and provide us some live acoustic music in the amazing studio. We can’t praise all of them highly enough. They all really helped to make our stay at Ty Gwyn simply unforgettable! Thank you all…till next time 😊Cat Thomson - Sept 2021
Really really happy we chose Ty Gwyn for our wedding. The venue is perfect, great location, great facilities. The additional studio is ideal for hosting a wedding party or any private function. Highly recommended.Katie Hanson. said.. September 2021
Wow, what an amazing place! We held a wedding here in July after having 3 prior bookings cancelled (covid). Everything happens for a reason, we would never have considered a smaller wedding unless we had been through the cancellations and finding this place made it all worthwhile. Absolutely unbelievable scenery, everyone commented on how it felt like a wedding abroad, beautiful house with every conceivable amenity plus more! Excellent communication with the hosts throughout and if you’re going to get married here I’d recommend the wedding package provided for a bit extra. Honestly all our guests were blown away from start to finish which was songs around the campfire (where else can you do that on your wedding night). Thank you for having us and providing us with an utterly memorable few days…..we will be back!Matt & Mayree. said.. July 2021
Excellent house for a girls hen weekend. Linda the owner was very helpful and very responsive to questions and giving us information. The views are amazing from the house. We had a mobile dance class as one of our events in the day. We dressed the studio for a red carpet theme for the main night. It was all just fab.Susan Davies. said.. April 2020
We stayed at the house by the sea for my 40th birthday and had the best time. The house is beautiful even better than the pictures and very clean. Linda and Lawrence were fantastic hosts answering all our questions and helping with local advice.
We stocked the pub room optics which was really fun and the dining room allowed us space for a lovely sit down meal on Friday night. Saturday we had a walk and a trip to the lovely local pub for lunch which Linda recommended, then Saturday night we had a party in the new outdoor room with flashing lights and a disco ball it was amazing.
Sunday we relaxed in the sauna looking out over the sea and played in the games room. It was too windy for the hot tub but we didn’t miss it as so much else to do. A perfect weekend with perfect hosts - we will definitely return again. Thank you, Lawrence and Linda, for making my birthday so memorable xx- Lisa O. said... 10 April 2020
What an amazing house! We had such a brilliant weekend for my hen do. The house was absolutely perfect and extremely well equipped with everything we could possibly need. The view was stunning and we were lucky enough to catch a beautiful sunset on the Saturday evening. The view from the sauna was a particular high point! Thank you so much to Linda for being so helpful and efficient with communication. A further thanks to Sam the housekeeper for cooking us a lovely BBQ. Would really recommend the Wonder Bar who came to the house to give us a cocktail masterclass. Thanks Dave! All in all, an extremely memorable weekend- we would love to return.Ellen. said 14 June 2019
We are a group of District Nurses from Warrington wanting to celebrate some special birthdays. We were lucky enough to find this amazing house. We couldn’t have asked for a better weekend. The house had everything we could possibly want. An absolutely beautiful location. Evening drinks overlooking the sea. A perfect time to chill and spend time with friends outside of our very busy workplace. We especially liked the bar and our evening meals around the table. To wake up in the morning to the sound of the surrounding wildlife was so lovely. Linda was very accomodating from the moment of booking. She was so helpful and responded quickly to our requests. We have already rebooked for next year. Can’t wait to spend more time with friends at this beautiful property. Thanks Linda and LawrenceTracy M. said... 27 May 2019
Hired this house for a hen party. We were absolutely blown away by the property! The views to the sea are amazing, and the house itself had everything we could of needed for the weekend. Lovely modern bathrooms, a cinema, it’s own bar and large dining room. We hired services into the house, e.g - an evening caterer and a life drawing class. Communication with the owner has been clear and easy throughout. Highly recommended for a large group who want to come together to party and relax. The hot tub makes this easy too! Thank you!Laura L. said... 29 Apr 2019
We spent 3 nights here with friends and family for our wedding celebration. All of our guests commented on what an amazing place Ty Gwyn is. The house and the views are spectacular. We spent the evening before our wedding enjoying views from the fire pit and we had reception drinks on the balcony after our service. The bar, cinema, sauna and hot tub were also very popular! Linda and Lawrence were great, getting back to me quickly with any questions. They genuinely care about guests having an amazing time.Dana F. said... 23 Apr 2019
Me and 21 of my friends stayed at Ty Gwyn for 3 nights for my hen do. It was incredible! As we came up the drive we were just bowled over by the incredible location & views! The house was just amazing too! It was really well equipped with everything we could possibly need and the dining table being able to seat us all was very well used during our stay! Our favourite bits were the pub, amazing cinema & of course the hot tub & sauna - that view from the sauna was to die for! We’re desperately thinking of a reason to come back with family as whilst it’s the PERFECT hen pad, it’s also ideal for families. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ty Gwyn to anyone! Thank you for letting me have my hen do here, we had the BEST time! I didn’t leave the house the whole time we were there!!!Rachel B. said... 7 Feb 2019
Where to start on how much we loved Ty Gwyn?! We are lucky enough to actually live in this truly gorgeous corner of Wales! I regularly drive past Ty Gwyn and remember staying there as a teenager (30 years ago!!) when it was run as an outdoor pursuits centre, so when we saw it advertised as a holiday let, and the photos blew us away, we just had to book it for my husband’s 60th birthday celebration. But when you actually arrive there , it’s even better in reality! How Linda and Lawrence have transformed this place is unbelievable and absolutely stunning. Every room is so tastefully done, and the house is beautiful from top to bottom! Modern, stylish, with gorgeous furniture, canvases , artwork and family photos which are a nice touch. Plenty of toilets, fabulous showers, really comfy beds and fabulous views to wake up to. There’s so much space too! Even in November, with all of us inside ( or in the sauna or hot tub!) for most of the time, you would never be under each other’s feet or feel peopled out! You’ve got the huge living room , reading room, amazing cinema, pool room, massive dining table and of course the wonderful bar, many peoples favourite spot!!. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need. But even though the house is so spacious, it’s perfectly warm, comfortable and totally homely, an absolute treat for those that had travelled a long way on the Friday! All in all, we couldn’t find fault with Ty Gwyn, I’m sure you couldn’t find a better venue for a get together. We, and all our friends had one of the best weekends we’ve ever had, and will never forget it! And thankfully, we get to keep driving past regularly and remembering such a wonderful time!Rachel G. said... 26 Nov 2018
What a gem. This place is fabulous. From start (booking) to end (coming home) it was brilliant. Linda has answered our many questions at the drop of a hat. We had a lot of various questions in the lead up to our stay and Linda replied quickly. Advising us of the best rooms to sleep certain sized families or providing us with travel cots or best place to eat in town etc etc. No question was left unanswered. Upon arrival we gained entry to the house easily. From this point on we were flabbergasted. The house is just amazing. It has lots to see and do. It took a good 20-25 mins to get around an see the whole place. I couldn’t say how many times I said wow!! It’s just incredible. The facilities available top it off!! We unpacked an sat on the balcony awaiting the rest of our crew who arrived in dribs and drabs. We were very lucky to have beautiful weather most of the weekend. While waiting we started to warm the hot tub up. And got the steam room running. It was all just so exciting. After all had arrived and an hour or so relaxing in the hot-tub and steam room we got dinner on the go in the fully equipped kitchen. It’s great. We actually had a competition going to find something that the house didn’t have. There wasn’t anything. I could go on and on but I’d be here all night. So would you!Clare G. said... 26 Oct 2018
Everything about Ty Gwyn is perfect! We have just enjoyed 3 days of shear bliss, fun, laughter and friendship. What made it possible, was the accommodation that my daughter booked last autumn to celebrate her sisters Hen Weekend. The house is huge, so having 30 people under one roof wasn’t overpowering, there is room for all in the main lounge and dining area, and then there are enough places to be able to get away from the crowd, (should you wish to). It is spotlessly clean, well maintained, and kitted out with all the equipment you would need, basically its home from home. We ordered a buffet for Friday evening, which was already in the fridge when we arrived, there was plenty of food for all. The grounds too are well maintained and we took full advantage of the outdoor world for our Gillympics (created for the bride to be), the Bollywood dancing lesson that was arranged for the Saturday afternoon, then of course there was the terrace where we ate our picnic lunch on Sunday overlooking the stunning views. There is no excuse to be bored at Ty Gwyn, with all that is provided, and our group took advantage of the equipment. We also went out and about. On Saturday we went into Fairbourne by car where we descended on the local people wearing purple Harry Potter t shirts and had to complete challenges, some of which we depended on the locals to take part….. They were really interested in what we were doing, and most had no problem joining in. (good sportsmanship). We returned to Fairbourne the same evening by train to dine at Indiana Cuisine, where we had previously booked an Indian banquet . The food was delicious, and the staff were fantastic. There was no waiting for anything and the staff were keen to provide food for all tastes and provided special requests for those who have dietary needs. Sunday was spent mainly at the house, taking part in our outdoor activities and dining for lunch, but then we took a car ride to Morfa Mawddach and walked along the bridge to Barmouth! There is a train, but the walk is something not to be missed. Our intention was to ride the train back but we all enjoyed the walk going, we couldn’t bring ourselves to miss the experience for a second time.
The owners are very approachable and always willing to answer questions, give advice and recommendations. I can’t praise Ty Gwyn enough, and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for accommodation for a large party. We had a Fantastic time.
This was literally the best house I have ever been to! Couldn’t have wished for a better venue to celebrate my hen party with all my amazing friends and family. The bedrooms were spacious, the views were absolutely breath taking and incredible and everyone loved it! There were so many things to do; hot tub, sauna, cinema room fire pit, massive lounge and lovely little bar area. We were so lucky to have had amazing weather on our side, I felt like we were abroad! I would love to come back one day. Thank you so much to Linda for her beautiful venue! I would recommend this venue to EVERYBODY! One very happy Bride to Be! Thank you xxxLauren B. said... 2 Jul 2018
We stayed at Ty Gwyn last weekend for a friend’s Hen do and can truly say this place is incredible! The house and absolutely amazing! Each room is designed beautifully with comfy bed and modern bathrooms. The kitchen is kitted out fully with a large pantry, you can tell the owners have thought of everything. The hot tub and sauna added a special touch. The sauna heated up in no time. The hot tub took about 90 mins, the key is to keep the vent open! Linda was very helpful and professional throughout, keeping me informed all the way up until our stay. All 21 girls absolutely loved their stay and we cannot wait for an excuse to come back!Jess's Review - 23 May 2018
Absolutely loved this stay!! I came on my hen do and was absolutely over the moon with my choice the sauna and hot tub went down a treat. Linda was amazing with emailing and helping with my plans… The only thing I’d suggest is doing more then 3 days to stay because it’s just not enough!! We loved all the quwerky bits in the house and the house very quickly became our own space and we loved it!! The house was clean and totally beautiful… As you can see I was absolutely in awe of the place and will be booking again for longer then 3 days!!!! Thank you so much xDeanna S - 16 May 2018
