Tŷ Twt - Holiday Let

Tŷ Twt is a traditionally built 16 x 14 foot timber frame cabin with a reed and straw thatched roof and verandah, set in a small mature orchard, fifty yards from the beautiful River Aled. It is also situated on the North Wales Pilgrim's Way, an ancient 130 mile walk from Basingwerk Abbey in Holywell to Bardsey Island. (www.pilgrims-way-north-wales.org)

The small kitchen area is under the traditional crog loft. The sitting room area of the cabin is double height where you can sit and gaze up at the exposed underbelly of the thatch.

We have created a comfortable cabin full of charm, peace and tranquillity. From here you can gaze across the valley whilst listening to the river and the birds. Watch the buzzards, heron and swallows by day, and watch bats and listen to the owls whilst gazing at the stars by night.

All who have visited say they feel an immense sense of calm and that it is a truly unique and wonderful place.

What do I need to bring?

Although we've tried to think of everything, there are still some personal items we recommend you bring with you.

- Wellies! It is Wales after all. However, if you’re arriving on foot or by bike or train let us know your sizes in advance and we'll do our best to sort you out with some.

- Toiletries (although there will be some toilet roll for your initial night). And a hairdryer if you need one!

- Food & Drink – The welcome hamper will keep you going until you get your bearings if you'd rather not bring a load of food with you and plan to shop locally. There will be information in the cabin to let you know where to shop.

- Warm clothes, waterproofs and cosy pyjamas. Sitting out at night can get a bit nippy – we've got blankets in the cabin to keep your knees warm but we'd also recommend you bring layers & a woolly jumper

- Torches are provided but you might want to bring your own lanterns. We think it's very romantic to just have the candles burning, however a word of caution – it is a timber framed building with a thatch roof so we please ask you to take great care.
