The name is pronounced approximately Tee Bach Toot.
It is generally referred to by us as "T.B.T." hence the web-site address.
"Ty Bach" means "Little House", "Twt" is one of those
words that doesn't translate directly from Welsh into English.
It can mean: neat, tidy, tiny, sweet, cute, etc.
This is a modern, purpose-built property, so don't expect inglenook fireplaces and beams, but it is finished to a very high standard.
Downstairs, there is a sitting area with a corner sofa which can be converted into a full size double bed, fold-up dining table with four chairs and a television with built-in DVD /Audio CD player; kitchen area; and shower room /toilet (no bath).
Upstairs, there is an open-plan double bedroom, with wardrobe, chest of drawers, easy chair and a hair-dryer.
The kitchen is fitted with a washing machine /dryer, refrigerator with freezer compartment, two electric hobs, and a microwave combi oven. An iron and ironing board are available.
Admittedly the house is quite small, and ideally suited for a couple on their own,
but with a sofa which can convert into a double bed downstairs, it can be used for a couple
and one or two children.
It is not really suitable for four adults.
Please note that the whole house is open-plan and the only internal door is on the bathroom. This can restrict guests' privacy if both beds are in use.
For young children we have a high chair available, a safety gate which can be fitted either at the top or at the bottom of the stairs and a second safety gate which fits across the front door, if you wish to leave the door open. As the house only has a shower, no bath, we also have a fold-up baby bath available. We assume that you will be bringing your own travel cot.
For the less agile, the house has the usual modern low-threshold front door, and the downstairs shower-room has a very wide door, but no grab-rails are fitted and there is a six inch step into the shower. For those unable to climb the stairs, it means sleeping on the sofa bed in the living area.
For cooler weather, the house has electric under-floor heating downstairs with an electric towel rail in the bathroom, and an electric convector heater upstairs.
There is no landline telephone in the house (so no broadband) and the only mobile network with reliable
coverage in the village is EE (Orange and T-Mobile). If you go out for a walk, you might pick up a signal
on Vodafone, and O2 works on parts of the beach.
If you REALLY can't survive a week without internet access, you will need to bring an EE 3G dongle with you, (although one guest has tried this and found it didn't work despite being in line-of-sight with the mast). Both pubs have free Wi-Fi.
