  • "We loved this cottage!"

    It is absolutely beautiful inside and outside. It is surrounded by peaceful mountains and animals. It was easy to get to and not to far from the news-y-coed rail/bus stops to take you into the Snowdon Mountain. Turn right past the telephone booth and the property is at the end of the drive.

  • "The cottage was the perfect base for our family adventure in North Wales."

    I would like to thank the owners on behalf of our family for providing a perfect home from home! The service I received from Sykes was fantastic. I'll be recommending the cottage to anyone who asks me about staying in rural Gwynedd. Cheers

  • "Very rural setting which we loved, surrounded by beautiful hills with sheep and horses."

    The house was so lovely and comfortable. It was a few miles from the village which only has one shop and a pub (which was closed and only opens at weekends). We had difficulty finding where to park at the property but a kind man helped us. There is a little drive way up the side at the start of the row of houses (just after the public telephone box) on the right as you enter the road. Then you drive right to the end and park at the back of the house in the allotted space. It was handy that there is a big building with a car park at the end which we could drive into and then drive back into our parking space.

The property

Penmachno 3.3 miles.

Settled amongst the rolling countryside of North Wales, on the outskirts of the picture-perfect village of Cwm Penmachno, rests this remarkable semi-detached holiday home, The Old Post Office.

Enjoying a peaceful, rural setting and framing far-reaching views of the surrounding greenery, The Old Post Office makes an idyllic base for a family retreat to Wales.

Park up in the off-road parking space provided at the rear of this lovely holiday home before descending the external steps where you will be greeted by your own private terrace garden; a truly tranquil spot to soak in the evening sunshine with your favourite tipple in hand.

Stepping inside your new home-from-home, be charmed by the traditional décor of the open-plan living space, thoughtfully laid out with a warming woodburning stove and patio doors, so you can take in the spectacular countryside views even on the coldest of days.

The well-designed kitchen is equipped with a range of helpful amenities sure to entice any budding chef, and the nearby dining table provides a lovely spot to gather together with your loved ones to indulge.

Settled on the first floor is a stylish family bathroom, comprising of both a bath and an overhead shower; pour in the bubbles and indulge in a blissful soak following a day of adventure.

When sleep calls, you're spoilt for choice between a sumptuous double and a twin bedroom, each offering ample storage space to unpack your belongings and make yourself at home.

Take a break from doing the cooking and treat your loved ones to an indulgent meal at the nearby Eagles Hotel, where you can choose from a menu serving traditional hearty pub grub, or if that's not to your taste, there's a wealth of choice to be found in nearby Blaenau Ffestiniog.

For a unique experience, head to Zip World Llechwedd, where you can tackle the exhilarating zip wire, delve deep underground with a tour of the subterranean slate mine, or bounce your way through the disused mine via the trampoline-style nets.

Avid historians may prefer to visit the remains of Dolwyddelan Castle or the National Trust property of Tŷ Mawr Wybrnant, renowned as the birthplace of Bishop Morgan who famously translated the bible into Welsh.

Spend a peaceful afternoon testing your swing at Betws-y-Coed Golf Club, or keep the little ones entertained with an adventure through the treetops at Zip World Fforest.

No trip to North Wales would be complete without an excursion through Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park; embark on an exhilarating two-wheeled adventure along the Gwydir Mawr Mountain Bike Trail, or hike to the summit of Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) or Tryfan.

With so much to see and do, there's no better base for an adventure in Wales than The Old Post Office

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Betws-y-Coed 4 miles.

The small, peaceful village of Penmachno is situated in the beautiful Machno Valley, just 4 miles from the popular town of Betws-y-Coed. Surrounded by woodland, magnificent mountains and flowing rivers, the whole area is a haven for walkers, birdwatchers, mountain bikers and climbers, whilst Betws-y-Coed itself offers a good range of shops, pubs and cafes. Here the River Conwy meets its three tributaries, creating a host of cascading waterfalls, river pools and ancient bridges throughout the surrounding countryside, the most famous of which is the magnificent waterfall at Swallow Falls, situated where the River Llugwy meets with a spectacular chasm, creating a sight not to be missed! The beautiful Conwy Falls are also well worth a visit and are situated in the Machno Valley. With all of Snowdonia to explore and North Wales' Heritage Coastlines also within easy reach, this beautiful location has plenty to offer at any time of year.
