    Clean and pretty well equipped. The Aga is lovely out of season in the chillier months. It’s a great base for Snowdonia and the Llyn Peninsula. Porthmadog has a good variety of shops ten mins drive away. Quiet, with nice walks from the cottage. The not so good. There is a muddy garden that leads up to the front door. It’s hard not to walk mud in every time you enter the house. With dogs, it’s messy! The lane is steep as others have said. Stick it in first gear and hold your nerve. The mould in both bedrooms around the windows isn’t nice. The curtains in the twin bedroom had rotted through :-(

    We are pleased you enjoyed your fourth stay at Grows Newydd. Thank you for calling us while you were there to tell us about the marks on the curtains. We offered an exchange with the curtains from our other cottage next door, but you were content to keep them as they were and we arranged for them to be professionally cleaned at the end of the week. We are delighted that you have since booked a further stay and we look forward to welcoming you back to Groes Newydd in April - Sykes owner relations

The property

This traditional, stone-built, semi-detached cottage is set in an elevated, rural location, just five miles from Harlech and five miles from Porthmadog in the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales.

Offering stunning panoramic views of the countryside down to the Tremadog Bay estuary, this charming Llandecwyn cottage is full of charm and character, with a welcoming woodburning stove, oil-fired AGA and pretty, enclosed gardens.

This cosy Llandecwyn cottage is an absolute delight with a comfy sitting room which enjoys superb views over the gardens down to the estuary, where you can watch the changing tides all day long.

The kitchen is well equipped, with a breakfast table for further dining options, and upstairs are the bathroom and the bedrooms, both benefiting from far-reaching views.

With Harlech and Porthmadog within five miles, this is an ideal touring base, but would equally suit walkers, writers, artists or outdoor enthusiasts due to its tranquil location, and with a small lake only 300 yards away, fishermen also benefit from its enviable position.

A superb Llandecwyn cottage for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday all year round.

About the location

LLANDECWYN

Harlech 5 miles; Porthmadog 5 miles.

Llandecwyn is a scattered rural hamlet in North Wales, which stands amidst farmland, hills with lakes and mountains, which are all perfect for scenic walks and mountain biking. Llandecwyn is set on the National Cycle Route 8, plus birdwatching can be enjoyed on the red kite waymarked trail, which passes through the hamlet. There are also birdwatching opportunities along the coast and at the RSPB Osprey project, which is nearby. Only 5 miles away is historic Harlech, which is situated in a magnificent position between the mountains and the sea. Harlech is dominated by its majestic 13th century castle, which enjoys World Heritage status. The town is very popular with golfers, who come to enjoy the famous Royal St. David's course, whilst the beautiful 6 mile long sandy beach is wonderful for family fun and long walks. Harlech offers an excellent variety of amenities including some good quality restaurants and a leisure centre, whilst the whole of the Snowdonia National Park, together with the sandy beaches of Cardigan Bay, are all within easy reach. Other attractions in the area include the Ffestiniog Railway and Welsh Highland Light Railway, the secluded beaches at Borth y Guest and the Black Rock sands and the Italianate village of Portmeirion. A really beautiful part of North Wales.
