This delightful cottage, one of a pair, has many original features and lies in the hills between Harlech and Porthmadog. There are walks from the door into the hills, and it is only a short drive across the estuary to the famous Italianate village of Portmeirion, designed by Sir Clough Williams Ellis, or you can ride the little steam trains of the Ffestiniog Railway. Nearby is the former slate quarrying town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, now a mecca for adrenaline junkies with Bounce Below, where you can bounce on trampoline nets in an underground slate cavern, and Zipworld Titan – the largest zip wire zone in the world. The Edward I castle (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) broods dramatically over the town of Harlech, which also has a superb sandy beach. Visit the Cambrian Coast down to Barmouth and beyond, whilst in the other direction the Lleyn Peninsula beckons with the seaside towns of Criccieth and Abersoch.
This property can be booked together with Capel Fawnog Bach (CC612087) to accommodate up to 10 guests.

I go every year. I find that there is too much furniture and nick nacks about the place that can feel a bit cluttered but I move them out of the way for my visit as that's my preference. Hope to holiday there again but will try a different location next year to mix it up

Secluded little cottage in beautiful surroundings and country-style garden, and with interesting family history. The cottage was warm and comfortable and nicely updated. We appreciated that there was wifi. The house is off the beaten track, but close to main routes. We visited many places of interest nearby, and did some lovely walks from the house, recommended by the owners. Thank you for sharing your childhood home.

A lovely cottage in a beautiful location. We particularly enjoyed the walks from the cottage. The scenery and views are amazing. The cottage is also well located to explore the rest of Snowdonia. Harlech is nearby with its amazing castle and beach. We had a great holiday and would recommend this property.
