  • Mr Russell

    “The cottage was excellent with quiet location facing good views.”

    The service from Sykes was good and we would consider using them again and perhaps going back to Y Bwythyn.

This delightful and spacious stone-built detached cottage is situated next to the owner’s Victorian villa within their 6 acres of land in the small rural village of Rhydymain near Dolgellau.

The property has been attractively furnished throughout and combines modern convenience with original features such as slate flooring/windowsills, and wood lintels.

The property also has notable eco-friendly credentials with its use of biomass for heating and photovoltaic panels generating electricity.

Through the side entrance there is a versatile utility room, including a separate toilet that leads to a characterful kitchen/diner, both have the original slate flooring.The kitchen has an original cast iron range, but for decorative purposes only.

The kitchen is well-equipped with modern appliances and a dining table that ensures family meals can be enjoyed together.

The comfortable sitting room has a warming wood burning stove ensuring a cosy stay, whatever the time of year.

Stairs lead up to a small split-level landing where three individual staircases of three steps lead to the two well-appointed bedrooms and to the modern family bathroom.

On warmer evenings open the patio doors from the sitting room to the enclosed slate patio area.

Here you can dine alfresco whilst soaking up the fabulous countryside views.
