This cosy cottage adjoins the owner’s farmhouse and is a perfect rural retreat for a couple wanting to explore the gentle highlands of southern Snowdonia. The nearest village, Abergynolwyn (1.5 miles) was originally built to house quarrymen in 1844 and has a cafe and a pub as well as a stop on the Tal-y-llyn narrow gauge railway. A range of shops and restaurants can be found at the Victorian seaside resort of Tywyn (7.5 miles) as well as good public transport connections by train and bus. Discover numerous cycling routes from your doorstep as well as walks: the Dolgoch Falls Walk (2.5 miles) leads to a series of waterfalls cascading down a ravine into a deep pool below; a 12-mile circular walk incorporates the 13th-century castle Castell y Bere and the rocky outcrop of Craig yr Aderyn. The majestic heights of Cadair Idris are 14 miles away.

A utility room on the porch offers coat and boot storage and leads to a farmhouse-style kitchen and dining room with exposed ceiling beams and views of the countryside. The lounge has two reclining sofas, as well as a TV, DVD, and a small library of books to keep you occupied on a rainy day or if you fancy an evening in. The bedroom is on the first floor and has a king-size bed and more amazing countryside views, and there is also a shower room.

A patio area with a picnic table outside the house overlooks a stream and is a lovely spot for a morning coffee or a BBQ on a summer’s day.

A beautiful place to get away from it all! A very comfortable cottage, spectacular scenery through every window, our own stream and sitting-out area and lots of places to explore nearby. Countryside, mountains, flat walks, hilly walks, the beach - this part of Wales has it all within a short distance. Although we had the peace and quiet of beingRead more on our own we were near main roads to get out and about during the day. We will definitely be back. Hide

(Thankyou also to Dylan (owner) on offering to drive us to either one of the two reasturants for our 1st nights tea, (valentine's night) which we diRead mored'nt take him up on as they were a good few miles and more away.. We drove & found one hotel & reasturant ourselves.. There are some amazing views looking out from the cottage and the stream running along side, so peaceful.. Would recommend a stay here... Hide

Very nice and clean property. Right next to a stream. Very quite location, right in the middle of mountains and fields. Host is very kind, helpful and gentle person. I would book it again if I'm going in that area. Highly recommended.
