    Spent a long weekend here with friends. First thing I have to mention is the lovely big kitchen. Well-equipped and lots of room to work. Large table for us all to sit around chatting and having a laugh. 2 double bedrooms and 1 twin each en-suite which is a big plus. Cosy reading room, very well stocked with a varied selection of reading matter and a comfy lounge. Both with wood burning stoves. Plenty of wood in stock. Music to our ears (see what I did there!) It also has central heating which keeps the whole cottage warm. Large garden to the rear but parking a bit tight to the front. Well positioned to enjoy walks straight from the door. 2 pubs 2 minutes away, one of which is being refurbished. No food in that one at the moment but open for drinks at certain times. We partook of a meal at the New Inn. Can thoroughly recommend their food. All in all a great property and location to spend time.

The large and well-equipped breakfast kitchen is perfect for families and friends to gather together around the country style dining table.

About the location

The pleasant village of Llangynog lies in breathtaking countryside amidst the beautiful Berwyn Mountains and surrounding wooded hills and valleys. The area has a history of lead, silver and slate mining dating back to the 17th Century but today it is a renowned location for climbing, birdwatching, walking and cycling, with famous mountain bike trails near Dolgellau, and a mountain bike centre at Llandegla. Llangynog boasts two pubs, both of which serve good food and are perfect to relax in after an exciting day out, plus on the outskirts of the village is a down hill mountain bike centre and a motorbike experience, which is set on a 1500 acre site. Enjoy Lake Bala, a wonderful beauty spot, with excellent fishing, a variety of water sports including white water rafting and a lakeside steam railway, or visit Lake Vyrnwy, which has a RSPB centre, bike hire and a sculpture park. Also within easy reach is Llanrhaeadr Waterfall, the tallest single drop waterfall in England and Wales. This is a beautiful part of the country and is perfect for touring the rest of North and Mid Wales and even Shropshire.
