Description

Cyplau is a picturesque, honeysuckle clad, Welsh rural retreat nestling in an elevated position and backed by woodland on the edge of Llanbedr village. There are beautiful views over the extensive landscaped garden with glimpses of the sea from the bedroom windows.
The cottage originates from the 18th century when it was two gamekeepers cottages. It has now been converted into a stylish, warm and cosy property with old beams. The name Cyplau (pronounced Cup-lie) is Welsh for coupled.
Within the acre garden are meandering paths giving access to several seating areas, many rare plants, topiary, culinary beds, hillside terraces and a green house tended by the owner who lives in the grounds. In the winter it is full of designed shapes whilst in the summer it is a mass of colour and scent. To make life easy there are ready prepared meals using ingredients from the garden in the freezer which can be purchased on an honesty basis.
The village is a 5 minute walk with local shops, bike hire, delicatessen/cafe and traditional inns serving pub food and real ales. Every September there is a popular beer festival and over the May bank holiday there is the North Wales Garden Festival with 22 gardens open to the public. Outdoor activities are numerous with easy or challenging walks straight from the cottage along rushing rivers into the mountains or along the sandy coastline. Within a 5 minute drive the shoreline provides beautiful and uncrowded beaches at Llandanwg and Harlech. There are regular guided beach walks, rock pools, a small harbour, an activity centre and a beach cafe all providing days of fun and freedom for all the family.
The Rhinog Mountains provide a stunning backdrop to the village which lies within the Snowdonia National Park. It is a perfect base to discover hidden places by foot or in the car. Renowned for its mountains such as Tryfan and Cader Idris, lakes, panoramic views, shoreline, historic castles and remoteness there is also an abundance of wildlife to identify. Snowdon, the second highest peak in the UK can be walked or ascended using the famous mountain train.
There is an array of places to visit and things to do in north Wales. Close by impressive medieval Harlech Castle is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the Royal St David’s golf course is a 10 minute drive. Further afield there are several narrow gauge steam railways such as the Ffestiniog, Welsh Highland and Tallylyn. The quirky Italianate village of Portmeirion is an architectural gem set in Mediterranean style gardens with excellent dining facilities. The Centre for Alternative Technology, a nationally acclaimed environmental attraction, is a 40 minute drive. For active youngsters there is Zip World with the biggest zip wire in the world and Bounce Below, numerous trampolines in a massive slate cavern, and with old slate quarries at Llechwedd there is always something to do whatever the season. Shop 1½ miles, pub 500 yards, restaurant 3 miles.
