Tŷ Hyll or Ugly House

Tŷ Hyll, or the ‘Ugly House’, is the Snowdonia Society’s flagship property offering nature and conservation activities for people of all ages, inspiring a love for nature and for Snowdonia’s wild beauty and heritage. Once the Snowdonia Society’s headquarters, the Ugly House houses an independently run tearoom and Honeybee Room and

is surrounded by a wildlife garden and woodland. Tŷ Hyll is a house full of history, legend and mystery; no one really knows who built the house, or when. Legend says that the house was built in the 15th century overnight – a ‘tŷ unnos’ or ‘one night house’. According to tradition at that time, a house built during one night on common land, with a chimney smoking by dawn, could be claimed by the builders as their own property.
