We really didn't expect it but we seem to have become a bit of a 'Mecca' for Hen Parties - I don't know why some owners don't welcome them, as we have found them to be amongst our best guests! I guess what we offer is enough space to all be together under one roof, to be yourselves, to sing and dance the night away without upsetting the neighbours. We also offer the opportunity to get involved in activities you might not normally get involved in - think Whitewater rafting in Bala, Stand up Paddle Boarding in Barmouth or Mountain Biking in Coed-y-Brenin or Frisbee Golf in the grounds of Ty Gwyn itself, the choice is yours.
We hope we have thought of everything to make your stay at Ty Gwyn that bit more special: hot tub - check, sauna - check, cinema - check, bar - check! Ty Gwyn is right up to date with all modern facilities including Super Fast Fibre broadband, so you can stream your favourite movies from Netflix or Amazon - we also have Sonos wireless speakers linked throughout the house, so you never miss out on the party, wherever you are! Just download the app and play your favourite music throughout the house.
If you fancy having somebody to cook for you for a special evening just give our housekeeper Sam a call; she can turn hand to most things and cater for most tastes.
If you really want to get the party going, we also now have a link up with a local cocktail making team who will come to Ty Gwyn to show you how to mix your favourite cocktails (and how to drink them of course!). Trev (a lady) who runs the Wonder Bar is a real character and would be happy to help you get your party started! Visit and contact her directly if you like – she doesn’t just do cocktails, she can also arrange for beer; gin; cider or wine tastings - she likes to supply local products for these but can also provide branded and standard products if you want.
We can also provide you with details for any other activities you might want to, including a local contact for beauty treatments if you want to stay in and spoil yourselves!
New for 2020 will be a 12m x 8m garden room that will act as a marquee, dance
floor/bar area, complete with glitter ball and Karaoke machine - will make a great venue for live music!
Also new for 2020 will be an additional 3 bedrooms - capacity stays the same at 30 but spread over 13 rooms instead of 10.
On the last day, you don't need to check out until 2pm - so no rushing out by 10 or 11am after any sort of celebration or one of Trev's cocktail nights!
