Traditional family holidays

Thinking about planning your family holiday for 2019?

Whether it’s a half term break, summer holiday or winter escape, booking the family holiday you want, is a real tonic after Christmas excesses to lift your spirits.

Traditional family holidays were fish and chips on the seafront, sandy sandwiches and makeshift hanky hats. Have fun starting new family traditions packed with treasured memories. Come home to fresh holiday adventures at five-star self-catering Tynrhyd Retreat, packed with heart and soul.

The perfect antidote to swarms of tourists, wend your way up the drive, past curving meadows onto a secluded private Estate; wrapped in the bewitching, unspoilt Cambrian Mountains.

You have freedom and space, with 13 private acres children will be itching for the simple outdoor adventures of yesteryear. Carefree riotous tag, building dens, kite flying, exploring the nature trail and taking picnics in meadows. Go on, show them how football used to be played!

Games room

Crammed with competitive fun, the games room has billiards to shoot and table tennis balls to thwack. The light filled Great Hall is perfect for Dad dancing and a sing-song around the piano or flopping in front of a family movie.

Vast open plan interiors offer welcoming social spaces, beams and log fires; fully equipped, stylish and comfortable means you don’t have to pack the kitchen sink. Space and charm for grandparents, and freedom for teenagers to escape. Lie back in the lap of luxury – and the bubbling garden hot tub!

Sink on to a picnic bench with a coffee, breathe and admire the view while the children climb trees. Do as much or as little as you like.

Pass on secret family recipes in bespoke kitchens, eat together, share your day’s adventures. At the end of a happy day put the little ones peacefully to bed, when you’re ready.

Your dog is part of the family, we offer a warm, relaxed welcome so Lassie can come too! With heather clad hills, miles of quiet sandy beaches and rabbity scents to rummage, discover moorland beauty together.

Tynrhyd Retreat’s location makes it the ideal base for exploring magical destinations. Keep small children entertained meeting alpacas, milking cows and riding a tractor at Fantasy Farm Park. Dolphin spot and sea kayak in Cardigan Bay. Try wild swimming in the Vale of Rheidol or watch hundreds of red kites feeding at Bwlch Nant yr Arian.

Explore Ynys Las beach with its iconic sand dunes and petrified forest. Uncover hidden filming locations for the BBC’s Hinterland and hunt the ghostly monk of Strata Florida. It’s all aboard for a steam rain adventure on the Vale of Rheidol Railway, to the Victorian seaside town of Aberystwyth, its sandy beaches, rock pooling and the simple pleasures of paddling.

Whether you want mouth-watering fish and chips, a town centre deli inspired by Ottolenghi or a homely country pub brimming with local charm and craft beer, it’s all within easy reach of Tynrhyd.

With something for everyone, Tynrhyd Retreat awaits your family’s generations and an adventure you may never want to end.
