The cottage

Bontnewydd 2 miles.

Resting at the southern edge of the majestic Snowdonia National Park, is this romantic retreat, Glan Y Wern.

Boasting countryside and coastal views, this idyllic accommodation is ideal for a couple looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and enjoy the serenity of this location.

Before stepping into this well-presented accommodation, spend a moment or two enjoying the far-reaching sea views and the soundtrack of the singing birds to set the tone to your wonderful countryside getaway.

Look forward to unwinding of an evening within the spacious, open-plan living room boasting a bright palette, carefully selected furnishings and a welcoming feel.

The well-equipped kitchen houses all the essentials to cater for yourselves during a week-long stay, before settling down at the dining table to tuck into a delicious breakfast or evening meal, where you can plan the days ahead with your loved one.

After dinner, sink into the plush L-shape sofa and tune into the smart TV with a DVD player, whilst the warmth of the woodburning stove fills the space with tranquillity before heading to bed.

The charm of the property is continued on the first-floor, where you will find a double bed and dual aspect windows offering views towards the owner’s charming grounds which includes a paddock and stables, perfect for keeping an eye on your beloved horse if you are planning to explore the area’s wonderful bridle-paths.

During the warmer months, enjoy your morning coffee within the conservatory area, where the wonderful elevated views can be enjoyed further before stepping outside to explore the grounds.

If you can tear yourself away from this charming base, venture into the centre of Bontnewydd where you'll find a pub, a shop and a fish and chip shop.

For those feeling active, head to the national park, where you can climb the mountain peak of Glyder Fawr or enjoy the superb mountain bike tracks at Coed Y Brenin Forest Park.

You'll also find a sports and social club in Rhostryfan .If you are seeking something more leisurely, head to the coast where you will find glorious beaches at Barmouth, Fairbourne and Aberdovey or brush up on the local history by spending an afternoon at Conwy or the city of Bangor.
