Description


Gloriously positioned just a few yards from the village inn and tea rooms, this charming former quarryman’s cottage has all you need for a comfortable and relaxing break, not least for the enclosed garden, which backs onto a babbling River Gwyrfai, ideal for summer barbecues. The woodburning stove in the original stone inglenook fireplace makes for cosy nights in. Situated just a short stroll from the famous Rhyd Ddu path up Mount Snowdon, this really is a walker’s paradise with many opportunities for exhilarating walks from the doorstep. The village boasts uninterrupted views towards Mount Snowdon and is situated right at the start of the Nantlle Ridge. For those wishing for a slightly slower pace, the Welsh Highland Railway passes through the village, with the station being just 2 minutes walk from the cottage, for a scenic journey through the national park to historic Caernarfon with its famous castle, the pretty village of Beddgelert and coastal Porthmadog. A perfect location for exploring the whole of Snowdonia and north Wales with a myriad of family attractions and exhilarating outdoor pursuits all within easy reach. Shop 3 ½ miles, pub and restaurants 50 yards.
