"In Captain Medwin's time, A.D. 1832... Tal-y-Llyn, as an angling-station, was little known. A few gentlemen — several of them clergymen, and occasionally an artist or two — were the chief visitors. The rude old-fashioned inn at Pen-y-zont — where the waters of the lake find an outlet, and form one of the sources of the river Dysynni — was the only accommodation the place afforded. This consisted of a parlour, somewhat dark and homely, but quiet and comfortable, and two or three small sleeping apartments. Anglers in those days were content to "rough it"; they were, in short, satisfied with humble fare and lodging. Some years afterwards, in the year 1844, the late Colonel Vaughan, of Hengwrt, the proprietor of the lake, built a neat and more commodious inn on the shore, at the south-west comer, near the village, and under the picturesque mountains Mynydd Rhinog and Craig-Goch. This was called Ty'n-y-Cornel inn. He also most liberally provided two boats for the use of visitors, and the inn was exceedingly well conducted by the landlord, the late Edward Corbet Owen....

Edward Corbet Owen, a most obliging, intelligent man, unfortunately for his widow and family, died in 1847 [sic]; in 1852, Mrs. Owen, from poverty and inability to manage the house, was obliged to retire..." 5
