Llandecwyn is a scattered rural hamlet in North Wales, which stands amidst farmland, hills with lakes and mountains, which are all perfect for scenic walks and mountain biking. 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.

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 both the bedrooms benefit from far reaching views.

Previous visitors' comments about Groes Newydd:
The cottage was absolutely fantastic. The aga kept the place beautifully warm and there was a welcoming wood burner in the sitting room. The setting is quite spectacular with views over the estuary and wonderful walks on the doorstep.

We had a lovely quiet relaxing break. The cottage is very homely, the views are breathtaking and beautiful
walks, with the dog, in the woodlands all around the cottage. We loved trying
out the AGA (great to slow roast local lamb. Fabulous break with fantastic scenery. Thanks!

Beautiful views, fire place, location and peacefulness.

This could easily be advertised as a writers' retreat. It is Wi-Fi connected and has an expansive library of books (some of the best stocked shelves I've ever seen.) It is utterly tranquil with lovely local walks and a view over the estuary to die for.
