    Cosy cottage in a great location for exploring north wales with plenty of walks and Snowdon only 40mins drive. Lots of little treats awaited us which was a nice surprise ...bread, milk etc. Soap, tea towels etc all provided. The heating was on for us on our arrival which is always a plus with storage heaters. The garden at the rear is completely enclosed for dogs and there is a utility room for muddy boots and paws. The kitchen is lovely and clean and well equipped ......the only thing we couldn't find was a measuring jug! The fridge has a freezer compartment which isn't mentioned but very handy. Lovely comfortable bed and linen. The living area is probably abit compact for more than 2-4 people but was fine for my boyfriend and I plus two dogs. The only issue we had was that it was very dark in the bathroom at night, I think a brighter bulb is needed and we did try to avoid showers in the evenings due to this , and for a girl , applying makeup was impossible. The vanity unit in the main bedroom was also dark at night and could use a light above the mirror. It didn't lessen our enjoyment of the cottage but maybe something for the owner to consider as a future improvement. The parking is not as described here. There is actually one parking space on a drive next to the cottage and any additional parking is on the road but easy to park. This was fine for us as we only had the one car. Overall we had a great stay and the place was very clean and tidy .

The property

Cerrigydrudion 2 miles.

A delightful and charming, double fronted, end-terrace cottage situated on a quiet lane in the pretty little rural hamlet of Cefn Brith, surrounded by open farmland and rolling countryside scenery and hillside views, on the fridge of the Snowdonia National Park, two miles from the village of Cerrigydrudion and only twelve miles from Bala.

This pretty cottage provides an ideal base for exploring this beautiful area of North Wales and will appeal to couples looking for a romantic retreat or friends and family wanting to spend some quality time together.

Providing homely and comfortable holiday accommodation that’s sure to delight, this lovely cottage has lots of charm and some lovely features and character attributes including exposed beams.

The sitting room is a lovely cosy room and features an open fire with ornate cast iron surround and slate hearth, perfect for those cooler days and chillier evenings, and the more intimate dining area is perfect for that romantic supper or more leisurely breakfast setting you up for a day of adventure and exploration.

The fitted kitchen is well appointed and modern with solid oak work surfaces and Belfast sink, well-equipped and catering for all your needs.

A downstairs shower room leads off the kitchen and three nicely appointed bedrooms are upstairs, all tastefully decorated to complete your holiday cottage.

Outside is a seating area to the front of the cottage where you can enjoy an early morning cup of coffee or a chilled glass of something on a warm summers evening, whilst taking in the views over the hills and fields beyond.

The enclosed patio at the rear provides additional seating and is sheltered providing the ideal place for some alfresco dining.

The Rhug Organic Farm and Restaurant is just 10 miles away and is the perfect place to pick up some supplies for the barbecue!

Surrounded by countryside, there are some wonderful walks from the cottage, and the Glassblobbery Glassworks and the GYG Karting circuit are just outside the village of Cerrigydrudion.

Both Bala, with its lake and numerous watersports, and Betws-y-Coed, where you can enjoy some wonderful waterfall walks are both less than 20 minutes away by car, opening up the Snowdonia National Park and mountain range.

Why not drive to Llanberis; a perfect start to the ascent of Snowdon or take the Snowdon mountain railway to the summit for something a little less strenuous.

Slightly further afield, for a truly unique white knuckle experience, try Bounce Below, a subterranean trampoline in Blaenau Ffestiniog and the amazing Zip World Titan and Caverns to get a different perspective on the mountain scenery, above and below the ground.

This lovely cottage provides an excellent base all year round.
