The property

A well-presented, Grade II listed terraced stone-built cottage in the popular village of Dinas Mawddwy, which nestles in the south of the Snowdonia National Park.

Located in a quiet setting Siskin Cottage provides a perfect base for a couple, friends or a family looking to enjoy the stunning surrounding scenery and wonderful walks.

Lovingly restored and maintained to a very good standard, this wonderful cottage is full of charm and rustic character with some lovely original features, such as stripped wood flooring, slate floors, ledge and brace doors, exposed stonework and decorative cast iron fireplaces, including the old cooking range in the kitchen.

Siskin Cottage offers you cosy and comfortable accommodation arranged over three floors, and you’re assured the warmest of welcomes from the moment you arrive.

The ground floor has a sitting room with two comfortable sofas and a warming woodburning stove, perfect on those chillier evenings and an ideal place to simply relax and unwind.

The kitchen is modern and well-appointed, with cream units, slate floors and a dining area.

The first floor bedroom has a comfy double bed and the spacious bathroom boasts a lovely white traditional period style suite including a double-ended bath, so you can enjoy a soak and ease those aching muscles after a day of walking in the mountains.

From the landing is a wonderful spiral staircase which takes you to a charming twin bedded room with exposed stonework and sloping ceilings.

Outside, with a backdrop of hillside scenery, the cottage courtyard garden enjoys the morning sun and the covered veranda and slate flagged patio with seating is the ideal place to sit and relax, ending the day off perfectly with a glass of something cold!

Dinas Mawddwy is ideally placed for discovering the stunning mountains of Mid Wales; the whole area is criss-crossed with well-marked footpaths that open up the myriad of outdoor activities that the Snowdonia National Park has to offer.

The village has a pub so after a day exploring you don’t even have to worry about cooking.

Cader Idris, Mount Snowdon’s lesser-known counterpart, is 10 miles away, and nearby Dolgellau offers a good range of shops for a more relaxing day, plus the sandy beaches at Barmouth and Fairbourne are just short drives away.

An excellent cottage perfectly situated to enjoy the stunning Snowdonia National Park.

There is much to enjoy for climbers, walkers, bikers and birdwatchers alike and this cottage will have you returning time after time!

    “We have just got back from a fabulous week at Siskin.”

    Everything we needed (and more!) was in the cottage and we were very comfortable after exploring the surrounding areas during the day. Suzi couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful and the welcome pack was a delight. Everything was very clean and we felt secure in the knowledge that it was all covid safe. Sitting in the garden eating breakfast, watching the mists roll across the hills is a must. The stairs up to the twin room are a bit difficult to navigate so we kept our suitcase and items we wouldn't need at night in the bathroom. Which was fine as the bathroom has ample space to do this. We enjoyed a lovely sunday dinner takeaway from The Brigands Inn, which we would thoroughly recommend. There was a bit of superficial building work going on during our stay, at the neighbouring property, which caused some slight noise. This did not detract from our fabulous stay and Suzi was very apologetic. Our week away at Siskin was a 70th Birthday present and the birthday boy said it was the best birthday he has ever had! Thank you Siskin and Suzi!
