  • "Cottage was perfect, lovely place inside and out, spent a lot of time in the garden across the way lovely sun trap."

    Facilities are great everything we wanted was there, short walk to the shop, slightly longer to the beach. Quiet location and very comfortable Cottage. Would definitely recommend this Cottage will come back again.

  • "We loved this cottage and wish we could have stayed longer."

    It is a really charming cottage in a quiet village. The garden was lovely and we used it every day as the little garden house was perfect for slightly less sunny days. The beds were really comfortable and we all slept really well. A huge plus for my mum and dad. All the facilities we could ask for . A washing machine would be great for longer stays. We have stayed in Dyffryn Ardudwy a number of times - bus and train connections good. Ysgethin Inn is walkable and The Spar and Foxs general store have everything you need. Plus a nice walk to the beach. Barmouth is also fab. We will be back hopefully in the Spring - although the cottage is really popular so booking might be difficult.

  • "Cottage well situated on a quiet side road."

    Looks recently renovated and to a high standard. Gardens well maintained. About a mile walk through woods and then on the lane to the nearby beach which is dog friendly to the right side. Parking to the rear of the cottage within a gated area with a small grass patch. Tended to use this for the dog as the main garden is to the front of the house across a driveway. Lacks a washing machine and a freezer so bear this in mind for a longer stay. Also the wifi doesn't work in the kitchen/dining room very well - could easily be sorted with an powerline extender or mesh system.

    Thank you for your comments about our property we are happy to hear you enojyed your stay, in regards to the WIFI we have now had a new router installed which has rectified any connection issues we do apologize if this caused any inconvionces during your stay. Property Owner

  • "It's a lovely cottage."

    Beautiful region. Barmouth is a lovely town with a beautiful beach where dogs are allowed (not allowed at the nearest one). On Thursday there was a little market there where you could buy fresh fish. Not many shops around, so it's better to take with you what you need. Nearest Spar shop supplies necessities and delicious meat (especially bacon). You should take a shower cap with you. Overall it was lovely holiday. I would go again.

Resting on the edge of the breath-taking Snowdonia National Park, in the wonderful village of Dyffryn Ardudwy, you will find 1 Borthwen Cottages.

Ideally situated just a stone's throw away from the coast, this striking character cottage makes the perfect base for a family adventure to North Wales.

Step inside this attractive abode and be welcomed into a lovely country kitchen, styled with pretty shaker style cabinets and all the essential appliances such as an impressive electric oven and hob, where you can whip up a hearty home-cooked breakfast to be enjoyed at the charming kitchen table.

Gather in the dining room to delight in a more formal group dinner as you feast upon a mouth-watering meal, courtesy of the chef of the group.

Afterwards, retire to the warmth of the snug, indulging in a tasty digestif as you stay nice and toasty from the heat of the multi-fuel stove, resting peacefully within the impressive exposed stone fireplace.

Cosy up to your loved ones as you settle on the sofa in the sophisticated sitting room and delight in a movie on the flat-screen TV, or curl up into one of the more traditional armchairs and lose yourself in the captivating narrative of a new and exciting book.

Venture across the hallway to discover a convenient cloakroom housing a WC, as well as a chic and airy bathroom featuring both a spacious bath with an overhead rainfall shower, perfect for a quiet night indoors as you pamper yourself with a relaxing soak in the tub.

Climb the staircase up to the first floor and be greeted by three homely bedrooms, including a king-size, a double and a single, each of which has been decorated with traditional furnishings.

Those staying in the stunning king-size will be impressed by the well-hidden walk-in wardrobe, where you can take your time to select your outfit for the day's activities.

Make the most of warmer climates as you sit out on the patio, refreshing beverage in hand, or tuck-in to lunch alfresco with a beautifully prepared picnic out on the lawn.

Grab your walking boots and head for the doors, as you travel deeper into this magnificent National Park and embark on a scenic hike to the summit of the famous Mount Snowdon.

Be well rewarded with stupendous views of the countryside, before descending down to the picture-perfect village of Llanberis, home to a number of well-established restaurants overlooking the glistening waters of Llyn Padarn.

Spend the day in the former mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, where you can experience an outdoor adventure like never before, as you swing through imposing slate mines at Zip World.

Closer to home lies the soft white sands of Benar Beach, a great place to start an exhilarating hike along the incredible Wales Coast Path, heading North towards the seaside resort of Harlech for a tour of the grand ruins of Harlech Castle.

Be sure to stay at 1 Borthwen Cottages for an unforgettable visit to North Wales.
