The property

This lovely barn conversion adjoining the owner’s home is set within well-kept grounds on the edge of Penygroes, bordering the beautiful Snowdownia National Park.

A delightful cottage, Garreg Wen Isaf Bach is perfect for a couple seeking a romantic break away, as well as being an excellent base for exploring all North Wales has to offer.

Tastefully furnished to a good standard throughout, you’ll feel welcomed the minute you arrive at this property.

The well-appointed sitting room is spacious and bright, with a large and comfortable sofa and a splendid dining area, equally ideal for a romantic supper or a leisurely breakfast, both of which can be prepared in the fabulous handcrafted oak kitchen.

Located off the sitting room, the stylish bathroom comes equipped with a delightful freestanding Victorian-style roll-top bath, perfect to indulge in a relaxing soak after cycling the nearby Lon Eifion Cycleway or climbing up Mount Snowdon.

An open oak staircase leads up to a spacious and peaceful bedroom, complemented by exposed beams and wooden floorboards, as well as Velux windows providing lots of natural light during the day and views of the starry night sky once the sun has set.

Venture outside and enjoy a glass of something cool whilst you admire the truly spectacular views of the Yr Eifl mountain range, Cardigan Bay and Anglesey in the distance.

For those who love walking, there are some excellent routes from the cottage, not to mention the beautiful Blue Flag beach at Dinas Dinlle, offering a sloping shoreline, sand dunes and rock pools, just four miles away.

The historic, medieval walled town of Caernarfon, dominated by its majestic mediaeval castle and boasting an array of shops and restaurants, is only a short drive away, whilst Llanberis, the starting points for many routes up Mount Snowdon is also within easy reach.

For a more leisurely way to experience the awe-inspiring beauty of the highest peak in Wales, take the Snowdon Mountain Railway almost to the summit and marvel at the stunning views from the rooftop of Wales.

Beautiful natural attractions such as Llyn Nantlle Uchaf and Nantlle Valley are also easily accessible by car, so there’s no end to the abundance of great days out to be had from your doorstep.

With the rugged beauty of Wales’s lush green hills, rocky peaks and sandy shores just waiting to be discovered, this cosy cottage is the perfect base for a memorable holiday at any time of year.

A good selection of shops, cafes and pubs are available in the village and the wider local area is full of restaurants and activities such as golfing, swimming, tennis, surfing and horse riding to name but a few. Plas Dinas Country House is also nearby, which is home to some great history as well as The Gun Room restaurant. The beaches on Anglesey and the Llyn Peninsula can be reached in about half an hour, while the beach at Dinas Dinlle is just a 10-minute drive away. Nearby, Caernarfon is home to Caernarfon Castle, which is well worth a visit, with further shops and cafes available, as well as steam train trips. Portmeirion is also a short distance away, featured in the TV series ‘The Prisoner’. Just 8 miles away is the Welsh Heritage centre which has a licensed cafe at Nant Nwrtheyrn with magnificent sea views from it's decked dining area. Beddgelert is a very attractive village, surrounded by the beautiful Snowdonia National Park, with a fabulous arts and craft shop, and several pubs. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.
