    “Comfortable and spacious holiday cottage with sea views”
    Bron Danw fulfils the main requirements for a summer holiday cottage being clean with comfortable beds, adequate bathrooms and in a good location. The description on Sykes website was accurate but I hope to add to that with my personal experience. The kitchen was quite large but was somewhat overwhelmed by a large table and a solid fuel stove which was no longer in use but presented a physical hazard, especially to the young and old. There were some surprising omissions from kitchen equipment ...
    Bron Danw fulfils the main requirements for a summer holiday cottage being clean with comfortable beds, adequate bathrooms and in a good location. The description on Sykes website was accurate but I hope to add to that with my personal experience. The kitchen was quite large but was somewhat overwhelmed by a large table and a solid fuel stove which was no longer in use but presented a physical hazard, especially to the young and old. There were some surprising omissions from kitchen equipment e.g. a teapot, kitchen scissors, medium sized glasses etc. The living rooms were simply but comfortably furnished and the floors were mostly painted/stained floorboards making a great play space for our toddler. Upstairs the bedrooms were roomy but the furniture was rather limited, the double room my wife and I used had a wardrobe and a bench with built-in storage but not a single drawer while the room across the landing had plenty of drawers but very limited hanging space. We found that having wash basins in two of the bedrooms quite useful and the upstairs bathroom was very good. Compared with other properties we have hired there was a shortage of information for any appliances or for local tourist attractions but at least we were not being manipulated by commercial interests. We do not have Sky TV at home so getting the hang of that was a bit of a challenge but having done so the picture was excellent, particularly on the large screen set ( it is Sky but just the free channels). The garden was kept in check rather than actively cultivated, quite acceptable for a holiday cottage, and would be a good play area for children although not for ball games as it slopes and is bisected by a rocky path. On the plus side I did see a slow worm at the top of the garden, something I have never seen before. The location is good, as described on the web site but the access to the beach is not that straightforward being steep in parts and requiring crossing the railway. The beach is mostly rocky/stony but there is sand at low tide and it was sufficiently tempting to entice me in for a swim on two days, something that has not happened for several years. We suffered from some interrupted sleep due to the poultry (and in particular cockerels) kept by the house next door. Depending on your point of view, this is either a charming feature of rural life or an unmitigated nuisance. In early July sunrise is very early and rather unusually we were there in a heatwave so tending to need the windows open at night which made for disturbed early mornings.

The property

A superb, detached, coastal cottage, located just 300 yards from the beach, on the outskirts of the village of Llwyngwril, close to the town of Dolgellau in North Wales.

This delightful Llwyngwril cottage is bound to please with a well-equipped kitchen, a dining area, and a through room taking you into the second sitting room.

Both the kitchen and second sitting room are fitted with woodburning stoves for warmth and comfort, and together with the dining area they form the social hub of the house.

The main sitting room across the hallway also benefits from a woodburning stove as well as stripped floorboards, giving it a homely, cosy feel.

There are four good-sized bedrooms at this Llwyngwril cottage, comprising two doubles to the front of the property, which boast sea views, and the double and twin to the rear offering lovely woodland views over the lawned garden.

Overlooking the rear garden is a large conservatory that doubles as a delightful alternative dining area.

The wonderful gardens with a large patio area are perfect for relaxing in and soaking up the sun, or enjoying an alfresco evening meal.

Just across the road from this Llwyngwril cottage is a path that leads directly onto a peaceful, often deserted beach, providing a fantastic play area for young and old.

Within two minutes' walk are a local village pub and shop making this a quality Llwyngwril cottage, ideally suited for both families and friends at any time of year.
