This cosy terraced cottage is in the quiet Welsh village of Trawsfynydd, in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park. There is a lawned garden to the rear, whilst the open-plan ground floor features a warming multi-fuel burner to relax by. The delightful Trawsfynydd Lake has a café and cycle hire available. Yr Ysgwrn, home of the famous Welsh bard Hedd Wyn is also nearby.

Formerly the slate capital of the world, Blaenau Ffestiniog, 10 miles, has been transformed into a fantastic adventure hub for thrill seekers. Try the world’s largest zip wire zone at Zip World, where you can fly over one of the old slate mines, or bounce on trampoline nets at Bounce Below, deep inside a slate cavern the size of St Paul’s Cathedral - a truly memorable experience! Take your bike and try the ‘Stiniog Downhill Bike Trail’. For a more relaxing way to travel, take a ride on a steam train on the narrow gauge Ffestiniog Railway, enjoying the ever-changing vista as the line twists and turns on the spectacular journey from Blaenau Ffestiniog to the coast at Porthmadog.

Take your bucket and spade to the beach at Black Rock Sands, or while away an afternoon at the fascinating Italianate village of Portmeirion, designed by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis. You can stride into the Rhinog mountains, defend the mighty Harlech Castle from invaders, or enjoy afternoon tea in the pretty town of Dolgellau. If it’s shops you’re after, the tourist honeypot of Betws-y-Coed, and the Victorian resort of Llandudno are both within easy reach. Beach 12 miles. Shop 100 yards, pub 3½ miles and restaurant 50 yards.
