The property

Dolgellau 5.1 miles.

Tucked away on the outskirts of Llanfachreth, a stone's throw from Dolgellau, rests this striking stone-built cottage, Cae Llechi, dating back over 400 years.

Enveloped in scenic countryside and perfectly positioned to explore both the coast and country of North Wales, Cae Llechi offers an idyllic base for your next group celebration.

Follow the rural track road through the picturesque fields surrounding this lovely dwelling, leading you to a spacious gravelled driveway nestled at the foot of the property, making loading an easy task, and step through the well-maintained gardens and over the threshold into your delightful home-from-home.

Be charmed by the rustic sitting room, boasting remarkable original character, decorated with exposed stonework, wooden beams and a warming woodburning stove, inviting you to kick off your shoes and settle down for a moment of peace after an action-packed day.

The designated chef will be delighted by the amply-equipped kitchen tucked away at the rear of the property, fit with all of the modern amenities necessary to prepare a hearty meal for the group, gathering your loved ones around the table in the neighbouring dining room to indulge as you enjoy some long overdue quality time together.

In the early evening, step outside for a leisurely seat on the patio, encompassed by the stunning greenery of the surrounding countryside, providing a tranquil setting to toast a glass of fizz to an unforgettable holiday.

As the day draws to a close, climb the stairs where you'll find four thoughtfully laid-out bedrooms, a double and two twins, all benefiting from their own television, so you can snuggle up under the covers and drift off to the sound of your favourite show, alongside a snug single room, offering an intimate escape from the excitement.

Prepare for a new day with a luxurious soak in the contemporary family bathroom, or if you'd prefer, kickstart you day with an invigorating rinse making use of the overhead shower.

Get better acquainted with your surroundings and head out on foot to explore, with a host of walking opportunities available from your doorstep; join the Precipice Walk, passing through scenic woodland, meadows and farmland, boasting picturesque views across the Mawddach Estuary, or follow the cycling trails through Coed-y-Brenin.

After working up an appetite, visit the nearby market town of Dolgellau, home to a fabulous selection of eateries to suit a variety of tastes, or if you'd prefer, pick up some last-minute essentials from the towns well-stocked convenience store to prepare some tasty treats in the comfort of your holiday home.

Venture further afield and spend a fun-filled day at the beach in the seaside resort of Barmouth, decorated with beautiful golden sand, perfect for basking in the sun or tackling the waves with a swim in the waters of Cardigan Bay.

Add a touch of luxury to your staycation and board an elegant motor yacht and sail towards St. Patrick’s causeway, keeping your eyes peeled for dolphins en route.

Treat your loved ones to a rural retreat to North Wales with a stay at Cae Llechi.
