The property

Penrhyndeudraeth 3.2 miles.

Resting in the peaceful village of Tan Y Bwlch near Penrhyndeudraeth in North Wales is this superb, two-bedroom Grade II listed cottage, Mill Cottage.

Enjoying a fantastic location within the Snowdonia National Park, an interior which is full of character and original features, as well as being attached to an old water mill which previously provided flour for the Tan y Bwlch Estate.

Mill Cottage is the ideal dwelling for couples or a family of four who are looking to explore the rich landscapes of North Wales, with easy access to the mountains and excellent walking trails on offer within the National Park.

Arriving at the property, leave your coats and shoes in the hallway before making your way into the well-equipped kitchen to rustle up a delicious meal for your loved ones.

The kitchen hosts a handy washing machine so you can freshen up your clothes between activities, along with an electric oven and hob, a microwave, and the all-important kettle and toaster to assist with whipping up your breakfast and morning cup of tea.

From here, make your way to the dining room to savour your meals as a family at the dining table; the dining room is home to a delightful dining table, and beautiful character beams and a slate hearth.

If the weather is nice, why not dine alfresco out on the private terrace, followed by a leisurely stroll to explore the mill pond which rests in the woodland behind the property.

Relax and unwind in the sitting room on the plush sofas as the woodburning stove gently warms the room around you, perfect for the chillier evenings.

When sleep calls, climb the stairs to the first floor, where you will discover two well-presented bedrooms, a double and a single, both with plenty of storage for your belongings and served by a spacious family bathroom, where you can indulge in a soothing soak or refreshing rinse.

The higher area of the garden has been left as a wildlife haven, paths have been cut through the grasses and wildflowers, where you are welcome to walk.

Fascinatingly, the outbuilding at this dwelling has been identified as a building of Special Scientific Interest, due to a small colony of rare bats that peacefully roost there; be sure to take care while you look out for them!

The Ffestiniog railway runs through the woodland behind the property, and the whistle can often be heard at various times of the day.

If you can tear yourself away from this characterful cottage, venture out to one of the local pubs for your evening meal; The Grapes Hotel offers hearty meals and real ales, or perhaps head into the picturesque seaside town of Porthmadog and dine at Spooner's Cafe, Bar and Grill.

Porthmadog and Black Rock beach is within easy reach by car from the cottage and boasts a pristine sandy beach and plenty of eateries to fuel your excursions.

There is a train station about a mile or so from the property, and there are walks along the river/estuary which runs through the Vale close by, and the Maentwrog nature reserve is also a short distance away from the property.

For activities during your stay, Snowdonia Tours offer a plethora of guided tours around the popular and hidden gem attractions within the Snowdonia National Park.

The area is a haven for walkers and cyclists through the varying terrains and stunning scenery.

Animal and nature lovers will love an afternoon at Gwaith Powdwr Nature Reserve, where you can wander the woodland and cherish the abundance of nature and wildlife.

A short drive will take you to the renowned Italianate village of Portmerion, a site not to miss while you are discovering this gorgeous area, which is home to colourful architecture and a truly unique experience while in Wales.

Mill Cottage promises a relaxing retreat in a breath-taking area.
