The property

Dinas Mawddwy 4.9 miles.

Surrounded by gorgeous vistas on the edges of Mallwyd near Dinas Mawddwy, North Wales, is this fabulous, detached, single-storey hut of Nant yr Esgair.

Enjoying a Hobbit-style layout, resting within a grassy mound, Nant yr Esgair also offers gorgeous open-plan accommodation, making for a lovely retreat for a couple or group of four.

Upon arrival, you'll be relieved to uncover three off-road parking spots as well as remote surroundings boasting a mixture of countryside and mountain scenery!

After taking in the sights, make your way inside to find an open-plan living space, where a corner sofa allows you to lounge in front of the Smart TV after a busy day; the sofa is positioned in front of the glass doors, so you can continue to savour the views from the comfort of the hut.

Progress to the kitchen, a compact but well-equipped space, where all you need to rustle up tasty meals can be found, including an electric cooker.

These meals can be tucked into at the breakfast bar or out in the private garden's sheltered decking; afterward, why not enjoy a soothing dip in the oak barrel hot tub?

When night falls, make your way to the welcoming King bedroom; the sitting area's sofa opens out to become a double sofa bed, for added flexibility.

In the morning, soak up in the contemporary shower room's walk-in cubicle before drying off with a toasty towel from the heated rail and venturing out to explore the area.

Choose Nant y Esgair for an idyllic getaway near Snowdonia National Park.

Note: This property can be booked with Ref. 1100513, together sleeping up to eight guests.
