The property

A peaceful Harlech cottage with its own 7-acre lake!

Originally a stone-built chapel, this detached property in Llandecwyn, 7.5 miles from Harlech, has been successfully converted into a charming Harlech holiday cottage, in a perfect away-from-it-all location.

This delightful Harlech cottage provides charming self-catering accommodation, including four bedrooms, a woodburner, and two sitting rooms, one with a pool table and TV/DVD.

The lawned garden of this North Wales holiday home is perfect for dining alfresco whilst enjoying the lovely views.

Set on a 700' hillside, surrounded by open farmland, scenic hills and mountains beyond, this is an ideal location for wonderful walks and mountain biking, as well as trout fishing and swimming in the owner's 7-acre lake.

With Harlech's golden sandy beach and renowned Royal St. David's Golf Club only 7.5 miles away, this is a delightful Harlech cottage in a wonderful rural location, perfect for a family holiday.
