The property

An immaculately presented, stone-built, detached cottage standing in an ideal location in the centre of the seaside village of Llwyngwril, a few minutes’ walk from the beach in the beautiful Snowdonia National Park.

This Llwyngwril cottage is extremely well appointed and offers deceptively spacious, contemporary holiday accommodation, providing the perfect place from which families or friends can discover this beautiful region of Wales.

This Llwyngwril cottage has four spacious bedrooms, including a twin set on the ground floor and the master complete with an en-suite and a Juliet balcony offering sweeping views across the River Gwril.

There’s also a luxury, modern bathroom, a lovely kitchen with dining area, comfy seating and TV, offering additional space to suit your party’s needs, as well as a large sitting room with an attractive stone fireplace featuring a woodburner, the perfection addition after a breezy day beside the shore.

Outside this Llwyngwril cottage, the lawned garden provides a serene spot for alfresco meals in the cool evening air after busy days spent roaming Snowdonia’s stunning mountains.

A wealth of wonderful riverside and hill walks await nearby, and the amenities of the village are just moments away, whilst within three minutes’ stroll is a pretty, pebbled beach, perfect for long walks at sunset and rock-pooling at low tide with the little ones.

A couple of minutes' walk away is a main line train station, meaning you can leave the car behind and take a trip along the Cambrian Coastline.

Visit Fairbourne, with its 2-mile stretch of pristine golden sands, try watersports, mountain biking or climbing, or potter around the towns of Dolgellau and Aberdovey.

There are many attractions to suit the whole family within easy reach of this wonderful Llwyngwril cottage including access to Harlech, Porthmadog, Pwllheli to the North and Tywyn, Aberdovey and Machynlleth to the south, all waiting to be discovered.

A lovely cottage, in an excellent location, perfect for a holiday to remember in Snowdonia.
