    Excellent location, great walks all around, fascinating traffic system,I found it best to leave down hill and return via the alternative route, but every journey held that sheer adrenaline expectation of will I met another, and who will reverse, with the beginning of any journey being like that anticipation of the start of the first drop on a roller coaster. The cottage was well equipped and lovely and toasty from the AGA, the location allowed you to sit in the window and become an expert on the tidal flows, watch buzzards soaring and hear sheep chomping the grass. Wonderful place to explore, the best being the small cwm just down the road, or up, to be precise, with its fairy tree, and ultimate reflections. Of course there were the alpine climbing sheep, and the line of followers going to a “ewenion” meeting up on the fell. Definitely time to unwind.

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.
