The property

In the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, 4 Arthur Terrace is a three-bedroom terrace cottage situated in the middle of the small, attractive village of Penmachno.

Discover stylish decor inside and good views from the garden terrace, all the while being within easy reach of a host of attractions nearby including the delightful town of Betws-y-Coed.

The front entrance for No 4 is up seven stone steps to the front door, passing a sitting area with bench which catches the afternoon and evening sun.

The door opens into the beautiful living/dining room, furnished with vibrant, plush sofas which you can sink into in front of a cosy woodburning stove.

The room combines a spacious lounge area with a dining table and chairs at one end.

You can feel the warmth from the fire in all areas, either when you’re relaxing and watching the Smart TV in the evening or enjoying a delicious meal at the table.

The decorative flooring runs throughout the downstairs and leads to a bespoke kitchen in a traditional oak timber style and granite worktops, with an island preparation area making cooking a pleasure if you’re dining at home.

There are a full range of appliances between the kitchen and the handy utility/laundry room, so you have all you need for a self-catered stay.

The large sofa in the kitchen is perfect to make it a room where you can relax and socialise with a glass of wine while waiting for your meal to cook.

After a busy day of exploring, walking and activities, you can head upstairs to take a moment to relax with a hot soak in the roomy L-shaped bath within the deluxe bathroom, with an overhead shower too for a refreshing way to wake up in the morning.

Each bedroom has been lovingly decorated to offer a tranquil sleeping spot for each guest, with neutral tones, crisp and pretty bed linen and plenty of storage for your belongings; choose from the lovely twin, a snug double with access from one side, or the elegant king-size bedroom with a sunny feature yellow wall to brighten up your day first thing.

Head outside to discover the fully enclosed, terraced garden split over three levels, with a bistro set just outside the door from the kitchen, a great place for a morning coffee with the paper.

Continue up to the third level which brings you to a fantastic decked area with a picnic bench for some alfresco dining and a romantic love seat, perfect for coming together on a summer evening and admiring the views of the surrounding mountains and hills over the rooftops.

Here you also find the rear gate and a very short path to plenty of parking.

The convenience of parking means that it’s probably the way you will come in and out most days, but the gate also steps you straight onto a footpath running directly uphill into open countryside and the start of so many local walks.

The lovely village is home to a welcoming local pub and shop, both less than 3 minute’s walk and catering to all your needs, whilst a wider selection of amenities can be found in the picturesque Betws-y-Coed which is just 5 minutes away by car.

Betws-y-Coed is known for the wonderful surrounding landscape which is scattered with waterfalls and woodland, it's the perfect place to stop at for an afternoon treat mid-walk or cycle with plenty of tearooms and cafés to choose from.

Penmachno is a great spot for the avid explorer being within the beautiful Machno Valley and just a few miles north from where the Machno and Conwy rivers meet, resulting in a series of stunning waterfalls and the stunning “Roman Bridge”, offering great walks to get to know the surrounding area.

Those who delight in thrill-seeking with mountain biking are in for a treat as literally just outside the village you can find Gwydyr Forest and the Penmachno mountain bike trails, home to a great network of scenic trails for all abilities, there's something for everyone!

Enjoy the delights of nearby Blaenau Ffestiniog, now acclaimed to be one of the adventure capitals of North Wales, home to Zip World Titan (the longest zip wire in Europe), Bounce Below and Zip Caverns, a subterranean system of trampolines and zip wires deep underground.

And of course there is the famous Ffestiniog Steam Railway for something a little more relaxing.

Also being in the heart of Snowdonia, you’re never more than 25 minutes away from the world famous Welsh mountains - Snowdon, Moel Siabod and Cwm Idwal.

With so many popular attractions within easy reach, 4 Arthur Terrace is a great base for your Snowdonia adventures all year round.
