Snowdonia’s iconic building is open this summer for those who fancy a great day out in North Wales.

Tŷ Hyll, or the Ugly House, is an iconic cottage with a rich history full of folklore and legend. Situated on the A5 between Capel Curig and Betws y Coed, it’s the perfect stopping point on a journey through Snowdonia. Tŷ Hyll is owned by the Snowdonia Society, a charity working to enhance, celebrate and protect Snowdonia National Park.

The cottage is reputed to be a ‘Tŷ unnos’, built in one night between sunset and sunrise, and has five acres of garden and woodland managed entirely by volunteers for the benefit of wildlife where more than 200 species were found in a recent 24-hour survey!

Entry to the house is just £1, with friendly information assistants on hand to explain the history of the house and answer any questions a great cheap idea for a day out. A small selection of souvenirs and garden plants are available to purchase. Any proceeds go to the Snowdonia Society, reg. charity no. 253231.

Tŷ Hyll is open to the public until 11 September, between 11am and 5pm. For any enquiries please call Sarah on 01286 685498.
