  • “We had an amazing time at this beautiful house, will definitely book to go back.”

    I would recommend to take some food with you as didn’t find much in regards to supermarkets. We went to climb snowdon which is about 10 minutes drive north. But what a lovely homely house to return too. Very steep hill up, so if you have a disability would need help taking your stuff up To the house from car. There was 9 off us and plenty of room in the house. Defiantly a house to escape a hectic life and relax. Carnt wait to rebook and go back

The property

Afon Morfa is an old stone cottage, bursting with traditional charm and surrounded by 10 acres of semi-tamed garden, a waterfall and wild woodland just waiting to be explored.

It lies within the superb Snowdonia National Park and close to the village of Fairbourne.

There is a private outdoor unheated pool and the property rests within easy reach of spectacular countryside, idyllic coastline and fascinating towns; bring your family and friends along to this heart-warming holiday home and enjoy a break of your choice.

There is a steep private drive up to the house and ample parking.

As you enter the tiled hallway there is a welcoming dining room on the right, with a formal table large enough to seat you all.

Step through into the country cottage-style kitchen, centered on a lovely wooden breakfast table.The Kitchen is lined with wooden units and well equipped with a comprehensive range of appliances. Choose from three welcoming, relaxing areas throughout the house to put your feet up and unwind after your adventures; the conservatory is refreshingly bright and overlooks the splendid gardens, while the smaller snug room is ideal to let your hair down in peace.

The large sitting room is a wonderful, versatile area, to talk, snooze, play and set the world to rights.

Those cosy nights in as a group will be spent around the wood-burner in the beautiful inglenook fireplace which gives Afon Morfa year-round appeal.

Further down the entrance hall is the utility room, a cloakroom and boiler room with ample space for wet clothes and boots. The main staircase to the first floor will lead you to three further bedrooms, all are peacefully furnished to ensure a restful night and offer varying arrangements to accommodate parties of all kinds; one room hosts bunks and a single bed, while one of the two double rooms benefits from a convenient en-suite.

A separate doorway from the sitting room leads to a small single bedroom with a hand-basin and a staircase to a private double bedroom away from the group, with its own en-suite.

As well as this unique, welcoming cottage, you get the added luxury of your own outdoor unheated swimming pool to enjoy on those sweltering summer days, or perhaps to sit beside on a sun lounger with a good book.
