    “The view from the bedroom window overlooks the waste bins from the opposite property unfortunately.”

    It needs to be made clear in the advertisement that the bath cannot really be used.

    It needs to be made clear in the advertisement that the bath cannot really be used. Otherwise fine!.

The property

An exceptional getaway awaits you at Bwthyn Bach, a delightful stone-built terrace cottage located in the centre of the village of Trawsfynydd with far-reaching views of impressive Llyn Trawsfynydd.

Surrounded by the Rhinog, Moelwyn and Arenig mountains and within easy commuting of Bae Ceredigion, Bwthyn Bach is a superb find for families, avid ramblers, beachcombers and those alike, seeking a place to call home as they explore the Snowdonia National Park.

Enter the porch, where you will find place to hang your coats and leave your muddy walking boots before pushing open the stable door to reveal the open-plan living room, where rustic charm combines with simplistic elegance.

Spy the woodburning stove set within the original inglenook fireplace, acting as the focal point of this room before settling down on the plush sofas and tuning into the TV, the warm crackle of the woodburning stove setting the ambiance.

Joining the space is the well-equipped kitchen, where any budding chefs of the group can look forward to making the most of the quality appliances before regrouping with your loved ones at the contemporary dining table to relish in some catch up time over a home-cooked dish and an accompanying tipple.

Once the evening has drawn to a close, find your sleeping spot upstairs, comprising of a master double bedroom and a children’s bunk bedroom, both boasting good storage space and charming artwork to admire as you wake up each morning.

Start each day by taking your coffee out to the rear garden, climb the 14 steps to the raised garden area, where you can kick back and soak up the views of the lake, and your canine companion is free to roam.

Meander around Trawsfynydd village, where you will find a small selection of shops and a hotel with a bar, as well as the impressive Llyn Trawsfynydd, boasting opportunities for birdwatching, canoeing, kayaking and cycling.

Those bringing two-wheels along, can look forward to exploring the Coed y Brenin Forest Park, Wales’ mountain bike mecca with a network of routes to suit all abilities and ages, with the captivating views of surrounding Snowdonia to enjoy along the way.

Keen walkers will also find a magnitude of walking opportunities within the national park, including a hike up to the peak of Snowdon, Arenig Fawr with its WWII memorial and Rhinog Fawr with its small lake to admire.

Alternatively, head to the coastline to find the beaches of Black Rock Sands, Harlech and Barmouth or spend an afternoon at the enchanting Italianate-style village of Portmeirion for a unique day out.

Other attractions, which lie slightly further afield but well-worth a visit include the Llanfair Slate Caverns, Zip World Fforest and the historic Cymer Abbey.

With so much to see and do, secure your break at Bwthyn Bach and prepare for a fun-filled holiday.
