    “Our stay at Hedd cottage was gorgeous everything about the cottage was outstanding, the cleanliness was 1st class.”

    Quality of bedding superb along with everything else in the cottage. The little extras like eggs,bread, milk and even dressing gowns and slippers really appreciated. ...

    Quality of bedding superb along with everything else in the cottage. The little extras like eggs,bread, milk and even dressing gowns and slippers really appreciated. The location although at the top of very steep hill gave us the most beautiful views overlooking Harlech castle and Snowdonia with the train station and lovely Harlech beach at the bottom. Local restaurants serving top quality food were a stroll away what more could you ask. Contact with owner John was great who even made the effort to come and introduce himself. Would certainly recommend to anyone wanting a beautiful stay in Harlech.

The property

Hedd is a beautiful semi-detached cottage located at the top of the oldest and the steepest hill in the world, as recorded in the Guinness Book of Records, known as Y Llech in Harlech within Snowdonia National Park.

With views of Harlech castle and the Snowdonia Mountains, this wonderful cottage is ideal for a couple wanting a romantic break away from it all.

A sought-after off-road parking space greets you on arrival before heading into the property that has been lovingly renovated to a high standard with superb little touches.

The sitting room, with exposed beams offers a warm welcome, a wonderful inglenook fireplace housing a wood burning stove takes centre stage and is perfect to curl up together in front of, while a favourite film on the Smart TV.

The well-appointed, fully fitted kitchen with integrated appliances caters for all your needs to be able to rustle up a fabulous meal; the dining area looks out towards the Castle, and when illuminated in the evening provides the perfect setting for a romantic dinner for two.

The bedroom is a lovely open planned space with a high-pitched ceiling and impressive beams, a comfy super king-size bed, that can be made up as a twin if preferred, ensures a good night’s sleep so you wake up refreshed and ready for another busy day out and about.

The shower room is on the ground floor and boasts underfloor heating, adding a touch of luxury.

Outside is a rear elevated patio seating area which is a lovely place to return to after a day of exploring, watch the sun go down and sink behind the historic landscape - what a perfect end to the day!

The High Street is just a short walk uphill where you will find a good selection of independent shops, tea rooms and restaurants.

Walks are in abundance from this delightful cottage and a visit to the 13th century medieval Castle is a must, before you unwind on the golden sands with your loved one.

Take a day trip to the seaside town of Barmouth where you can bask in the sun on Traeth Abermaw Beach, enjoy a local delicacy from the Dolphin Fish Bar, or venture through the gardens of Wern Mynach.

Why not visit Porthmadog and board the Welsh Highland Heritage steam engine, tour the intriguing Maritime Museum, and wander through the quaint Marina?

The whole of the magnificent Snowdonia National Park is just waiting to be explored, along with the Italianate village of Portmeirion; both locations are fabulous days out for you and your partner, with plenty to see and do!

For your next memorable getaway to the Welsh coast, choose Hedd.

Situated in a magnificent position between the mountains and the sea, the delightful small town of Harlech is dominated by its majestic 13th century castle.

The town is very popular with golfers, who come to enjoy the famous Royal St. Davids course, whilst the beautiful sandy beach is wonderful for family fun and long walks. Harlech offers an excellent variety of amenities including some good quality restaurants, whilst the whole of the Snowdonia National Park, together with the sandy beaches of Cardigan Bay, are all within easy reach.
