It won’t just be the view from this lovely detached house that leaves you breathless and gets your heart racing!
This beautiful period property, dating back over 100 years is elevated high above the tree line on a wooded hillside with far-reaching views over Barmouth Beach, Cardigan Bay and stretching as far as the eye can see, encompassing the Llyn Peninsula and the Snowdonia mountain range.
Accessed via a sloping zig-zag pathway and 52 steps in total from the roadside, you’ll certainly be fitter leaving than when you arrived, but it’ll be worth it when rewarded with the superb views and welcoming accommodation that won’t disappoint you.
This is a perfect base for a seaside holiday for couples, friends and families.
This cottage has been successfully refurbished to a good standard throughout with a well-appointed interior and has a very homely feel.
The sitting room is ideally placed with a large bay window and seating to enjoy those amazing sea and coastal views, and a lovely fireplace houses an electric woodburner-effect fire, offering a warming glow on those chillier evenings; a wonderful place to relax and unwind after a busy day.
The dining room is accessed from the well-equipped kitchen to provide a pleasant environment for a sit down meal but it’s the garden room with full length glazing and rattan dining furniture which provides the perfect place for more social occasions.
Whatever the weather the garden room is a wonderful addition to the already comfortable accommodation, ideal for alfresco dining or simply a wonderful tranquil place to sit and relax after a long day walking on the mountains or a day on the beach.
Here you can enjoy those long summer evenings, or if the weather is against you, then watching those white horses rolling in or simply stargazing into the night sky, watching the lights tinkling across the bay, reminiscing over memories of your day.
The four bedrooms are all comfortably furnished with good quality beds so after all that sea air you’re sure to get a good night’s sleep.
Each bedroom enjoys a sea view but it’s the two double bedrooms occupying the front of the house which have the best views out to sea, and the master bedroom even boasts an en-suite shower room.
There is a patio area with barbecue outside the cottage and the mature sloping gardens are landscaped into the hillside with an array of flowering shrubs, plants and trees, a wonderful haven for birdlife.
This whole area is a perfect for walkers and climbers, and the coastal town of Barmouth with its array of shops, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants, plus its beautiful sandy beach, is only a five minute drive away.
This popular area is also ideal for sailing and watersports enthusiasts, as well as providing some of the best mountain biking, with Coed y Brenin, the largest mountain bike trail centre in Wales, being only 12 miles away.
Further afield, explore the stunning architectural gem of Portmeirion, take a historical trip to Harlech Castle with its visitor centre or enjoy the industrial heritage of Blaenau Ffestiniog slateworks, steam railway, Zip World Titan, Zip Caverns or Bounce Below, an underground trampoline.
This lovely cottage offers the feel of a rural retreat but with a coastal setting, and its comfortable accommodation provides an ideal getaway for family and friends alike, all year round.
