Only short walk to Welsh Highland Railway from this terraced cottage with woodburner and views of Snowdon, Porthmadog nearby.

Gloriously positioned just a few yards from the village inn and tea rooms, this charming former quarryman’s cottage has all you need for a comfortable and relaxing break, not least for the enclosed garden, which backs onto a babbling River Gwyrfai, ideal for summer barbecues. The woodburning stove in the original stone inglenook fireplace makes for cosy nights in. Situated just a short stroll from the famous Rhyd Ddu path up Mount Snowdon, this really is a walker’s paradise with many opportunities for exhilarating walks from the doorstep. The village boasts uninterrupted views towards Mount Snowdon and is situated right at the start of the Nantlle Ridge. For those wishing for a slightly slower pace, the Welsh Highland Railway passes through the village, with the station being just 2 minutes walk from the cottage, for a scenic journey through the national park to historic Caernarfon with its famous castle, the pretty village of Beddgelert and coastal Porthmadog. A perfect location for exploring the whole of Snowdonia and north Wales with a myriad of family attractions and exhilarating outdoor pursuits all within easy reach. Shop 3 ½ miles, pub and restaurants 50 yards.

    Bedrooms far too small sofa in front room inadequate for 4 adults Not a good cottage to rent if you want comfort

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We were a little shocked to read your negative review especially as no comments were left in the visitor book. Cwm Yr Afon is a traditional quarryman’s cottage as described within the property description. The lounge has a leather 3 seater sofa and leather easy chair. The bedrooms are compact as seen in the pictures on the website. Maybe for your party of 4 Adults, 1 Infant and 2 pets, a larger, more expensive property would have been better suited to your needs. As Owners, we work hard to make our business a success and we are proud of what we have achieved over the years. As per the Booking Terms & Conditions, guests are asked to keep the property clean and tidy, and to leave the property in a similar condition as found upon arrival. We do ask that the Terms & Conditions are adhered too; sadly on this occasion, they were not.
