The property

This sweet, old, fisherman's cottage lies in the seaside town of Barmouth in Wales, perched on the end of the terrace, it is set back on 'The Rock' and from one of the main bustling streets.

Bwlch Cottage is a perfect fit for a couple looking to enjoy a delightful retreat in North Wales, within reach of so many wonderful attractions, like the idyllic sandy beach, as well as the vast Snowdonia National Park.

Spend a quiet evening inside the snug sitting room where a traditional woodburning stove rests within the original stone fireplace, perfect for warming you and your loved one on a winters night.

Rustle up a quick breakfast within the kitchen before heading out, with a small, fold-out table to perch at when you're not busy enjoying the delightful tea rooms, quirky cafés, pubs and restaurants all within strolling distance of your quaint abode.

Move underneath the exposed, painted beams to discover the sleek shower room, bringing a contemporary aspect to this old property, it houses a fully tiled shower for you to freshen up in.

Head up the open-tread stairs at night to rest in the eaves; the low level king-size bed sits within a tranquil grey and white colour scheme, across from a pretty dressing table, with natural light pouring in from the Velux window when you open the blinds on waking.

Simply step out onto the main street and be met with a wealth of options for food and drink, including The Tilman, practically on your doorstep it's a wonderful 'local' to have, offering elegant and sophisticated interiors, or go where the locals go and receive a warm welcome into The Last Inn, a 15th century pub with traditional inglenooks and Ships Beams, it's one of Wales' most famous watering holes.

Take walks along the promenade, sunbathe on the beautiful Barmouth Beach, or enjoy a coastal walk up to Harlech.
