  • "Great location, the owners were fantastic at sorting out any issues, the cottage was fabulous."

    MarkJun 2021

  • "Stayed there for a short period though enjoyed it a lot."

    The location is perfect, completely off-grid yet close to shops. House is beautiful and well maintained. All amenities are really good and satisfactory. Communication with the landlady was informative and helpful. Just a few heads-up in case if you wondering, The hot water is limited so use it carefully, I felt discomfort only on this facility. Kitchen stove is not a traditional stove so if you love cooking take your own stove for convenience. And the bedrooms do not have heating so be prepare if you visiting the place on cold days. The location will not disappoint you. I will definitely recommend this to my friends.

  • "In short this is a fantastic little gem of a property away from the hustle of everyday life."

    The cottage has everything you need and is warmed by the front room burner and the kitchen Range which did us proud! The scenery is spectacular and we just did not want to leave the place! Amazingly stunning all round!

  • "I wanted to write a quick thank you for a lovely stay at Hafod Y Rhedrwydd at the end of August."

    We loved the location of the cottage, the amazing views and getting away from it all. We had one sheep who seemed to magically appear in the garden and not sure how they managed to get in as the gate was always shut, but the girls thought it was fun!

  • "Great spot to disconnect from the rest of the world"

  • "All my family loved staying at this cottage within Snowdonia."

    It's beautifully set at a height near the top of this range of green hills, with a stream running through the property. There's plenty to explore round about and tourist destinations are easy to get to, and all within 40 minutes of scenic driving. There's a small price to pay for the beautiful spot with having to use a petrol generator and oil range stove which take a little getting used to. You also cannot drink the tap water but the owners provided plenty of bottled water. They also had a range of books to read, and TV/DVDs that my children watched at night. Broadband internet and wifi is present (When the generator is on) and was good enough to check emails and search the web for local attractions. We couldn't get enough of the views around this scenic cottage and would certainly rent this property again when visiting the area.

The property

Set in complete seclusion with no other house in sight, within Snowdonia National Park, rests this detached cottage, Hafod y Rhedrwydd.

Looking down 700ft to the valley below, Hafod is one of the highest of the houses in Wales and offers stunning panoramic views from all angles of the National Trust countryside.

It is the perfect rural retreat for a family for five, or group of friends who are seeking total relaxation, yet within easy reach of nearby activities.

A mountain road leads you up to the property, where you can park two cars at the start of the footpath, and make your way up to your wonderful, remote hideaway to begin your holiday.

The kitchen/diner oozes character and is the perfect room for socialising with your party, as the budding chef of the group makes use of the stunning Rayburn oil fired range cooker to cook up a delicious meal before you all gather around the wooden dining table to tuck into your meal and toast a glass of bubbly to the start of your holiday.

Retreat into the sitting room where you can kick back and relax on the welcoming sofas whilst watching a film on the HD TV, as the oil burning stove keeps you warm and toast on a cold winter evening.

Before heading to bed, indulge in a relaxing soak amongst the bubbles in the claw foot bath, where you can appreciate the beautiful views down to the valley floor.

Upstairs there are three welcoming and homely bedrooms, two doubles and a single, making it perfect for a family.

All the bedrooms offer wonderful views across the hills and down the valley; the perfect sight to wake up to in the morning.

Catch the morning sunrise whilst enjoying a warming mug of coffee outside, where you will find slate terraces, historic remains of a 17th century Welsh longhouse, a mountain stream accessed across a slate bridge, all surrounded by stunning scenery and wildlife entering the garden, of which you can admire sat at the outside dining table and chairs.

Notably, the surrounding countryside forms part of the Migneint SSSI, noteworthy for many species, including the spectacular Hen Harrier!

Relax from home cooking and head to The Union Inn which is a 19th century village inn, with a friendly atmosphere, located in the beautiful village of Tremadog, this little pub is a great place to enjoy some delicious pub grub with all the family, try some local ale, cosy up in front of a roaring fire or book a table in their more formal dining room.

Take a tour at Llechwedd Slate Caverns which is a working slate mine that has been open since 1836, where you can go deep into the mountain with temperatures is a pleasant 54F and learn all about the life of a slate miner.

Afterwards, enjoy a drink or meal in the Miner's Arms, overlooking the mountainous landscape.

Train fanatics will be delighted with the 13-mile-long journey through the scenic countryside and the outstanding natural beauty of Snowdonia, with a trip on the Ffestiniog Railway, which climbs over 650ft and ends at Blaenau Ffestinog slate quarries and mines.

For a fun day out, head over to Welsh Mountain Zoo in Colwyn Bay, to discover a range of animals including snow leopards, Sumatran tigers, chimpanzees, brown bears, bearded dragons and African toads to name but a few.

Enjoy the exciting and extensive Jungle Adventureland and Tarzan Trail Adventure Playground!

If you fancy a scenic walk along the beach, Harlech Beach is within easy reach and has beautiful golden sands and clean waters, with huge sand dunes creating an impressive backdrop, whilst the 13th century castle looks down over its rocky outcrop.
