A delightful mid-terrace quarryman’s cottage, backing onto the River Gwyrfai in the pretty village of Rhyd Ddu.
This is the starting point for many walks up Snowdon (via the Rhyd Ddu Path), Moel Hebog, Yr Aran and the Nantlle Ridge and is only three and a half miles from Beddgelert, making the cottage a perfect getaway for a couple, friends or a small family wanting to explore the wild and woolly terrain of Snowdonia.

The warm and welcoming sitting room is so nicely decorated and with comfort in mind, a wonderful inglenook fireplace houses a lovely woodburner is so cosy to relax in front of after a day out and about, perfect for a night in on those chillier evenings too.
Like so many cottages of this age and nature the shower room is downstairs, very well appointed and modern in styling and the kitchen in contrast to the cosy sitting room and bedrooms is light, bright and modern with contemporary fittings, and smooth high gloss units and clean lines.

Two bedrooms upstairs complete this beautiful holiday cottage, both individually styled and tastefully decorated in warming browns and autumnal colours.
Outside there is a rear patio and gravelled area with table and chairs, and the river flows past the bottom of the garden, creating a sense of well-being and harmony, the perfect place to relax on a warm summer’s evening, whilst enjoying a refreshing glass of something or a barbecue.
