  • Really well proportioned cottage in excellent decorative order.

    “Whilst the cottage is lovely it is the location that is absolutely jaw dropping. If you enjoy walking and exploring countryside, coast and villages this cottage is perfectly placed. Was very impressed just how tranquil the location is! Will be returning in the Autumn.”

The property

Llanbedr 1.2 miles.

Discover this charming cottage nestled where two rivers merge in the village of Pentre Gwynfryn near to Llanbedr, offering six guests a homely spot from which to explore the Snowdonia National Park.

Beser Cottage is on the doorstep of some of the most beautiful mountains making it a prime choice for those seeking an outdoor adventure to Wales.

Step in to this fully renovated and refurbished in summer 2020 through the cheerful red cottage door, this traditional stone cottage feels warm and cosy with its kitchen log burner and Smartwave electric radiators throughout, and head into the sitting room to the right, with two plush sofas to sink into after a day of walks.

Relish quality time amidst your loved ones in the country kitchen/diner, sitting at the round dining table with a freshly opened bottle of wine while the chef of the group prepares a meal at the kitchen island, with a host of excellent appliances to help you rustle up some fabulous dishes, including an electric range cooker and hob, with a woodburning stove sitting within a large stone fireplace adding further ambiance.

Completing the ground floor is the utility area to the right of the kitchen where a washing machine and tumble dryer promise to make keeping on top of any laundry a breeze, as well as a cloakroom too with a basin and WC.

For rest and relaxation, travel upstairs to the first floor to choose your sleeping spot, with a king-size bedroom, a twin bedroom featuring zip/link beds that can be made into a king-size on request, and finally a twin bedroom, all equipped with tasteful decor and furnishings for your things.

A bathroom completes the interior, home to a roomy P-shape bath with a shower over, a towel rail and a basin and WC.

Enjoy sitting out on the large enclosed patio area with table and chairs and BBQ on one side of the house at any time of day, listening to the sounds of the rivers flowing and admiring the general peaceful atmosphere of this rural spot, and an outbuilding where you can store your mountain bikes, canoes, golf clubs, fishing gear etc, with lighting and power sockets for charging.

Surrounded by pretty woodland, guests can enjoy walks from the very doorstep of Beser Cottage, with a private path up to the woodland at the rear of the property allowing you to explore your immediate surroundings.

About the location


Harlech 3 miles; Barmouth 8 miles.

The pretty village of Llanbedr quietly nestles in ancient woodland between The Rhinogs, part of the Snowdonia Mountains, and the stunning golden beaches of the North Wales coastline. Situated next to the beautiful River Artro, and boasting a mild climate due to its unusual positioning behind the high dunes of a nature reserve, this charming village has an exciting array of wildlife and birds, handy local shops, bike hire and mountain walks on your doorstep, as well as two excellent pubs. The small town of Harlech is just 3 miles away and boasts the World Heritage Site of Harlech Castle, a majestic 13th century stronghold, the most impressive of all those built in North Wales by Edward I. Popular with golfers due to its famous Royal St. David's course, Harlech also boasts an excellent variety of amenities including some good quality restaurants and the most magnificent six-mile long sandy beach, perfect for wonderful walks and family fun. Nearby Barmouth offers the amazing Panorama Walk along the beautiful Mawddach Estuary, providing breathtaking vistas, which were described by John Ruskin as “the most sublime view in Europe” and also a harbour from which you can catch a ferry to Fairbourne for a ride on the miniature railway, or a boat trip out to sea to try mackerel fishing. With the delights of Snowdonia National Park and beautiful Cardigan Bay to discover, this is a fantastic holiday location at any time of the year.
