The property

This lovely, rustic, detached 17th century cottage is situated just four miles from the village of Chwilog and just over eight miles from Criccieth on the Llyn Peninsula.

The cottage appeals to couples looking for a romantic rural retreat, or friends and small families wishing to explore this beautiful part of North Wales with the wonderful countryside and coast to explore, an ideal get away from it all.

Situated next to the main house of the old Hendy Farm Estate and believed to have been one of the barns, this cottage is a haven of rustic charm.

If you are an artist or writer and are looking for some inspiration, then look no further than the splendid scenery and landscape around you.

Wherever you look, the cottage is just oozing charm and character.

The sitting room has real appeal with its high beamed ceiling and spiral staircase up to a lovely snug area, an ideal place to tuck yourself away with that book you've been meaning to finish.

The warming woodburner is a lovely feature to the room and the patio doors allow the outside in.

Mind your head on the low beamed ceiling in the well-equipped country-style kitchen with quarry tiled flooring.

The ground floor double bedroom is light and spacious and the crog loft king-size bedroom completes this lovely beamed cottage.

The garden is large with a secluded sitting area where you can enjoy the fantastic country and sea views with a morning coffee whilst planning the day ahead, or just enjoy the garden after a day full of discoveries, gathering around the firepit to re-live memories of the day's events.

There are numerous country walks from the door and a short drive away is the town of Pwllheli, with its numerous shops, pubs, restaurants, award-winning marina and beautiful beaches, just waiting to be discovered.

Criccieth Castle is only eight miles away, and a little further afield is the Snowdonia National Park and all its attractions, just waiting for you to explore and enjoy.

Take a ride on the Ffestiniog or Welsh Highland Steam Railways at Porthmadog, or visit the Italian village of Portmeirion.

Blaenau Ffestiniog is close by with attractions such as Llechwedd Slate Caverns, Zipworld Titan, Bounce Below and Antur Stiniog Mountain Bike Centre with its various downhill trails, ensuring there really is something for everyone.

This delightful cottage is an ideal retreat to be enjoyed all year round.
