Totally unique, completely inspiring and the ultimate hideaway. The Welsh name 'Ty ar y Mynydd' literally translates to 'House on the Mountain'. If you're looking for a tranquil, scenic setting away from it all, this beautiful and remote holiday cottage offers the perfect retreat in the heart of the Cambrian Mountains in Mid Wales. Hospitality Award Winner in the 2017 'The Best Aber Welcome' and winner of the Green Award in Aber First Awards 2019.

This immaculately refurbished property boasts expansive mountain views from all windows, and on approaching the cottage, ‘Pumlumon’ - the highest peak in the Cambrian Mountain range - will come into view. With no other house in sight, a holiday at Ty ar y Mynydd is a truly liberating experience where you can enjoy what is probably the biggest garden in Wales! Only 8 miles from the village of Tal-y-bont with its shop, pub and restaurant, yet a whole world away from the mad rush of modern life. If required, the owner can also provide a 4x4 vehicle for access.
