Tan y Beran is situated on the hillside of Moel Rhiwen near Deiniolen and has extensive views, from Moel Eilio in the south west, across the Menai Straits to Llanddwyn and the Isle of Anglesey with Holyhead in the distance. On a clear day you can also see Ireland. An elevated position that allows you to witness spectacular sunsets.
This is a great place to have as a base for exploring the remoteness of North Wales' beautiful mountains and beaches or just to savour the peace and tranquility of the house and garden.
A one time Victorian farmhouse, Tan Y Beran is surrounded by a large garden in a peaceful location, surrounded by fields where sheep and cattle graze. The garden has a very small stream with two small ponds. The rear of the garden is accessed by gentle sloping path with a few steps on one side and from the rear patio by steeper steps. There is ample parking for several vehicles.

My family have really enjoyed our stay in this lovely house so ideally situated and with such lovely views. It was a great base to enjoy many activities such as a mountain climbing/walking, zip wires, a deep slate mine tour, the mountain coaster, to name but a few. The house was lovely and clean and well equipped. Majella and Gareth gave us such a lovely warm welcome, they really went to great efforts to ensure that everything was perfect for us. The honey from their bees is wonderful and the hamper which they provided on arrival was so thoughtful and much appreciated. Thank you again for such a lovely stay we would definitely visit again!
3rd Aug - 10 Aug '19 - Sharpe family - Fab stay. Lovely hosts - very informative with things to do in the area. Very welcome food hamper and the honey was delicious. So many lovely walks especially enjoyed climbing Snowdon. Zip wire was thrilling if over a little quick! Thank you for having us.

27th Sept -29th Sept - Yeoman family and friends - Many thanks for a lovely stay in Wales. It rained a lot, but that didn't matter as we could light the fire and enjoy this lovely cottage. Kitchen even had bowls and plates for the kids and they loved running around in the garden.

We received a very warm welcome. Thank you very much.
30th December - 3rd January 2020 - Jones family - Thank you so much for our New Years retreat, very child friendly, everything has been thought of, from safety gates to disposable bibs!

16th March - 19th March 2020 - Grant Family - what a lovely welcome, great few days away with the family. Amazing views over breakfast, wonderful log fire - weather was 'lush'.
This really is a home from home, honestly, one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. Cleanliness and everything thought of, from stair gates to hairdryers and it's the best shower I've had in ages!
The hamper on arrival did the trick and the honey is to die for (we will definitely be sending for some more) also will be in touch for Beekeeping advice.
Only sad part about this holiday is that we have to cut it short due to 'corona virus' and a need to be home.
Nothing can stop us from coming back again, can't wait , also can't recommend it enough to people we know.
You have both created a real hidden gem - one word to sum everything up "Lush".
PS: The welcome gift for our grandson was very welcome and shows what lovely people own this cottage!
Mrs. Bennetts July 18 -25th, 2020
A wonderful place – the pictures don't really do justice to the views from this lovely cottage. Just watching the sea and sunset from the top floors, or the rotating cast of animals (lambs, cows, and the occasional rabbit) from the kitchen is a great pastime.
Comfortable enough for a large family, and spotlessly clean.
Faulkner family 8th - 15th August 2020 This is a utterly stunning property. The gardens are beautiful, with so many flowers and a little stream, topped off with the views. Inside the property every room was lovely and has everything you could possibly need. We were greeted by a gift hamper and fresh flowers in the dining room and bedroom. Great added touch by the very attentive hosts. Couldn't have asked for more. Highly recommended!
Lockyer family 15th - 22nd August 2020 - This is a hidden gem of a holiday cottage. Immaculately clean throughout, and the most helpful owners, who were incredibly supportive after our arrival was delayed by a few hours. This is far more spacious than the photographs give the impression of, and is well-furnished and kitted out. It's also a superb base for exploring the area, rain or shine. We loved the garden, especially the front table, with accompanying stunning sunsets (and the brook in the back).
