Description

This delightful, character, end terraced, holiday cottage is in the pretty village of Dolwyddelan in the Snowdonia National Park. It retains its original charm with inglenook fireplace, wood burner and exposed beams, and has a sunny raised patio with a small courtyard which leads to a rear garden with sitting-out area.
Moel Siabod towers above the village with the River Lledr flowing through the centre. Dolwyddelan Castle, a 13th-century fortress made famous by Prince Llywelyn, is a well known local landmark. A paradise for walkers and climbers with the hidden valley of Cwm Penamnen opposite the cottage. The village has a railway station on the Conwy/Blaenau Ffestiniog valley branch line passing through Betws-y-Coed, 5 miles, and Llandudno.
Llanddudno has quite an array of shops, live shows and entertainment which may be seen at the Theatre Venue Cymru. Nearby access to the many beaches of the Llyn Peninsula with Porthmadog, Harlech and Cricceth to name but a few. Chester and Anglesey are within an hour’s drive.
