Tu Hwnt i'r Afon is a fantastic stone-built cottage in the heart of Bethesda in North Wales.
A beautiful property with modern furnishings featured throughout, yet still retaining an old-time character and charm.
The master bedroom has lots of space to kick back and relax and all rooms are decorated in fresh hues, making it very light and airy.
It is all on ground floor, apart from a quaint little crog loft featuring a single bed and impressive Velux window, letting in lots of natural light.
Lovely views can be seen from here of the sitting/dining area which has a contemporary feel, beautifully decorated with a slate inglenook fireplace and woodburning stove.
The kitchen, again, is wonderfully contemporary and well put together.
Outside are steps up to a delightful garden with an abundance of different flowers and plants and a big open lawn with plenty of space for the kids to play.
Why not sit out and enjoy a well-earned glass of wine whilst looking out onto pleasant, scenic hilltop views?
Woodland walks can be accessed from the back garden gate, which leads to Carneddau Horseshoe, part of the Snowdonia mountain range.
This is great for getting everyone out together on a long walk through the beautiful countryside.
There are lots of other exciting things to do in the local area; for adrenaline seekers, there is the Bethesda Zip World, featuring the longest zip wire in Europe, not to mention Snowdon, one of the wondrous national three peaks in the UK to climb.
A spectacular little cottage suitable for families or friends, with delightful, well thought out details and a homey atmosphere, you won't want to leave.
About the location
Bangor 6 miles; Caernarfon 10 miles.
Bethesda is a small town settled beside the River Ogwen in North Wales. Situated on the A5 between Bangor and the Snowdonia National Park, Bethesda was once a busy slate quarrying town and nowadays offers a good selection of shops and other amenities, in particular a number of chapels and pubs. The beautiful mountainous scenery of Snowdonia borders Bethesda, with the Lôn Las Ogwen cycling and walking paths skirting past. For the more adventurous, why not visit Zip World in Bethesda which is known for having Europe’s fastest and longest zip line. Capel Curig, just ten miles away, is a popular centre for walking, climbing and mountain biking, whilst Llanberis is situated at the foot of Mount Snowdon and is home to the Snowdon Mountain Railway and the National Slate Museum. Cwm Idwal is also a wonderful spot to visit, situated in northern Snowdonia – Darwin came to study the area and found tiny fossils of oceanic plant life and sea creatures in the boulders and rocks. The coastal town of Caernarfon is just a short drive away as is the beautiful Isle of Anglesey and the Anglesey Coastal Path. Visitors to the area can also explore the castles of Caernarfon and Beaumaris and the NT stately homes of Penrhyn Castle and Plas Newydd Country House and Gardens. Spend the day at one of the many traditional seaside resorts, or discover the isolated, hidden beaches on Anglesey, much of which is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With spectacular scenery on the doorstep, wonderful wildlife with buzzards soaring overhead and the occasional Peregrine Falcon to be seen, and many exciting outdoor adventures to discover nearby, Bethesda is superbly located for enjoying both the coast and the countryside of stunning North Wales.
