About Us

A little background

Ty’r Celyn is literally translated as ‘House of the Holly’, hence the name Holly Tree House. It was built in the late 80’s by the father of the owner. You will see a caricature of him in the corner of the dining room. He was well known around the village and was always willing to help with some very long tales to tell.

The area

This area of Wales is really beautiful, it has wonderful views with the sun setting over the sea and creating shadows on the mountains. The house is on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park, so there are opportunities for walks where you can see the mountains in all their beauty and their different colours at all times of the year.

The house is very close to the beach so just a short walk away is a great place to let your dogs run. Alternatively you can head further afield to Aberdesach, Nefyn, Pwllheli and Abersoch. You can also join the many footpaths and cycle routes exploring the Llŷn Coastal Path down to Bardsey Island at the tip.

There is plenty of history to be seen in the area, with castles at Caernarfon, Criccieth and Conwy. Also the Lloyd George Museum and National Trust Plas yn Rhiw are great places to visit.

The house

The house is quirky in that the living room is upstairs and there is a bedroom downstairs. Downstairs is floored with oak, salvaged from a church. The lovely galley kitchen gives a modern cottage feel with oven, combi-microwave, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. The bathroom has also been replaced, so you can enjoy a bubble bath or take an invigorating shower in comfort. We provide an EV charger in the yard for those that need it.

The dining room, with oak parquet floors and hand-crafted staircase up to the lounge, is flooded with natural light with the dining table taking centre stage for you to gather round, enjoy a meal or play cards and board games after dinner. Then you can relax in the lounge on the first floor with views over the garden and towards the coast. Settle down on the comfortable sofas, plan your holiday activities or watch a film on Sky TV.

The master bedroom provides a king size bed adjoining the living room and is complemented with a downstairs twin bedroom. Both have wonderfully comfy beds designed for a good nights sleep.

The house is set in an acre of land, in which a local farmer grazes sheep. The garden has a wide variety of plants providing colour throughout the year. It has places to sit out and enjoy the sunset as well has have a cup of coffee or glass of wine.
