The property

This traditional, stone-built, semi-detached cottage is set in an elevated, rural location, just five miles from Harlech and five miles from Porthmadog in the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales. Offering stunning panoramic views of the countryside down to the Tremadog Bay estuary, this charming Llandecwyn cottage is full of charm and character, with a welcoming wood burning stove, oil-fired AGA and pretty, enclosed gardens. This cosy Llandecwyn cottage is an absolute delight with a comfy sitting room which enjoys superb views over the gardens down to the estuary, where you can watch the changing tides all day long. The kitchen is well equipped, with a breakfast table for further dining options, and upstairs are the bathroom and the bedrooms, both benefiting from far-reaching views. With Harlech and Porthmadog within five miles, this is an ideal touring base, but would equally suit walkers, writers, artists or outdoor enthusiasts due to its tranquil location, and with a small lake only 300 yards away, fishermen also benefit from its enviable position. A superb Llandecwyn cottage for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday all year round.

    • “Set in a beautiful location! If you don't mind the narrow access lane and the steep hill this ticks all the boxes. The stunning view is something to savour!”

    • “We had a lovely time at the cottage, we loved learning how to use an aga ! Not too difficult to get right with the local welsh lamb from the local butcher. Perfect location to enjoy lazy nights in at the log burner, with a good book (loads to thumb through on the cottage bookcase) Cottage was really homely, beds were wonderfully clean and comfortable, great for lazy long lies waking up to views of sunshine over the bay. We took our dog, there are plenty of pretty walks in the woodlands all around the cottage.”

    • “We really liked the location, enjoyed the walks around the cottage, the country side was breath taking, the locals were friendly and we enjoyed each evening in front of a lovely log fire.”

    Mrs Broughton, Llantwit Major, November 2015

    • “The location is idyllic and the views were spectacular. The cottage is one of the best ones I have stayed in and I could quite easily live there. It's well equipped, well furnished and very homely. It was so relaxing and peaceful, I didn't want to come home.”

    Mrs Withington, Stoke-on-Trent, October 2015

    • “The view and the location were so special - staring out the window, wandering up to the lake and the little chapel up the hill, watching the changing sky and the sea in the estuary, eating in the garden. The house is comfortable and just right - everything you need though nothing flashy. The area is less touristy and more rural than further north amongst the bigger hills, but still fantastic for walking and isolation. Had a perfect week - we were lucky with the weather too.”

    Ms Kessler, Bristol, June 2015

    • “The cottage is in a fantastic location with amazing views. Very beautiful area. It was nice, warm and comfortable. Great base for this area with some lovely walks close by.”

    Mr Moffatt, London, April 2015

    • “So many things we particularly like about the cottage; the Aga, the wood burner, the location, WiFi, the views, the beaches, the mountains and the leisure centre in Porthmadog. We both love the cottage, it's the second time we have been and it's always warm, welcoming and a wonderful relaxing holiday retreat.”

    Mr Greenwood, Preston, March 2015

    • “Loved the property and beautiful location, will certainly stay again.”

    Mr Rogers, Cardiff, February 2015

    • “Liked everything! The home comfort of the cottage coupled with it being off the beaten track and still had Wifi and mobile signal! I have already recommended it to a friend for November.”

    Ms Hatch, Sowerby Bridge, September 2014

    • “This was our second visit to this cottage this year. We love the peaceful location as it's ideal for walking (our dog loves it) yet it's so convenient for visiting lots of places being only about a mile from the main road.”

    Cookson, Morecanbe, September 2014

    • “We found the cottage to be very comfortable and, as promised, the views from the front of the house and garden are amazing. It's well situated for walking and a good base for visiting places of interest. We enjoyed our stay so much that we have booked to go back later this year.”

    Cookson, Morecanbe, May 2014

    • “The cottage is warm and comfortable with all the modern convenient equipment, there are good walks and beautiful views. We had a wonderful stay at the cottage with plenty to do in North Wales.”

    Mr Burgess, Newton Abbot, April 2014

    • “Fantastic place, amazing views, lovely garden. Have already recommended to friends and family and we will return again as soon as we can.”

    Miss Crowther, Dronfield, April 2014

    • “The cottage has a lovely warm and welcoming feel, it is very comfortable, clean, and very well equipped, and the aga made easy work of roasts and casseroles. It also has really wonderful views. For us with our dog, there are some really good walks in the immediate area. In fact I would say it was perfect for us!”

Llandecwyn is set on the National Cycle Route 8, plus birdwatching can be enjoyed on the red kite waymarked trail, which passes through the hamlet. There are also birdwatching opportunities along the coast and at the RSPB Osprey project, which is nearby. Only 5 miles away is historic Harlech, which is situated in a magnificent position between the mountains and the sea. Harlech is dominated by its majestic 13th century castle, which enjoys World Heritage status. The town is very popular with golfers, who come to enjoy the famous Royal St. David's course, whilst the beautiful 6 mile long sandy beach is wonderful for family fun and long walks. Harlech offers an excellent variety of amenities including some good quality restaurants and a leisure centre, whilst the whole of the Snowdonia National Park, together with the sandy beaches of Cardigan Bay, are all within easy reach. Other attractions in the area include the Ffestiniog Railway and Welsh Highland Light Railway, the secluded beaches at Borth y Guest and the Black Rock sands and the Italianate village of Portmeirion. A really beautiful part of North Wales.
