About the property

Tywyn 7.3 miles.

Resting alongside a peaceful, babbling river in Abergynolwyn, Gwynedd is this delightful, mid-terrace Quarryman's cottage, Carreg Las.

Boasting a traditional décor and a charming garden, perfect for the summer months, this lovely cottage is ideal for a couple or small family looking to discover the fantastic Snowdonia National Park.

The slate landscape of Gwynedd, known for roofing the 19th Century world, is to become Wales' fourth UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The landscape dominating communities from Dyffryn Ogwen to Abergynolwyn and Tywyn will now enjoy the same status as landmarks such as the Taj Mahal Arriving at the cottage, park your car in the village and make your way down the tranquil street while admiring the mature shrubbery in the garden.

Step into the cottage and find yourself in a quaint sitting room hosting plush sofas, a welcoming electric stove, and a Smart TV for your entertainment in the evenings.

From here, take advantage of the well-equipped kitchen and whip up delicious, home-cooked meals for your family to enjoy together at the dining table.

As the evening draws to a close, head upstairs to rest your eyes ahead of another adventurous day; the first floor hosts a spacious double with plenty of storage and a twin, which is ideal for the children.

Completing the interior is a family bathroom, so you can freshen up between activities or enjoy a long soak in the bath after a tiresome day of walking.

In the warmer months, savour your morning coffee out on the patio while your four-legged friend gives their legs a good stretch.

A must while you are in the area is to take a ride on the famous Tal-y-Llyn Steam Railway which chugs its way through the trees, high above the village.

There is a cafe at the Tal-y-Llyn railway offering Hot & cold drinks, soup, sandwiches, mouth-watering cakes and tempting treats in a traditional railway tearoom.

Aviation enthusiasts will be pleased to discover the Mach loop nearby, where the RAF train and you may catch the jets out on a run one day.

The location offers total tranquillity but is only a short drive from lovely sandy beaches and plenty of fascinating attractions.

Along with the Tal-y-Llyn Steam Railway, the quaint town of Tywyn boasts its golden sandy beach and chocolate-box, book shop, sweet shop, and other businesses and eateries.

Spend a day exploring Aberdovey, home to yet another stunning beach where you can join Let's SUP for an afternoon of stand-up paddle boarding, or simply relax at the shores with a picnic and a good book.

Avid golfers can also enjoy the breathtaking views over the lusciously green plains at Aberdovey Golf Club.

The thriving town of Dolgellau is also within easy reach and a walkers' haven with Cader Idris and The Mawddach Trail providing beautiful routes within the fantastic Snowdonia National Park.

Whatever your style of adventure, choose Carreg Las as your base for a family holiday you will remember for years to come.

About the location


Aberdovey 4 miles; Dolgellau 20 miles.

The tranquil town of Tywyn lies on the sweep of Cardigan Bay, perched on the end of the imposing Cader Idris mountain range where the landscape tumbles into the sea on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park. The promenade and town are all on one level, ideal for that gentle evening stroll by the clear blue water of the Bay. Shopping in Tywyn is a pleasure, with a regular open-air market, and local shops offering a wide range of local produce and gifts. The proximity to mountains and sea means the town also offers a wide variety of activities, from mountaineering to surfing, and the area offers leisurely rambles through the beautiful countryside. Slightly further afield lie the towns of Dolgellau and Aberdovey (with its golf course), while attractions such as Harlech Castle, Llanfair Slate Caverns and the Talyllyn Railway, together with the sandy beaches of the Cambrian coast make this an ideal location for a relaxing break.
