Outdoor enthusiasts will love this character cottage, with open fires, numerous footpaths and Lon Eifion cycle track close by.

Perched on the slopes of Cilgwyn Mountain overlooking Caernarfon Bay, this detached, former farmhouse has panoramic views out to sea from Porthdinllaen on the Llyn Peninsula to Anglesey. Set in four acres, in an old slate quarrying district, Gwyndy is ideally situated for walkers of all abilities. Walk in the footsteps of the old quarrymen and take in the breathtaking views from the various local routes. Choose from all the routes Gwynedd and Mon offers from the peak of Snowdon to the Llyn Peninsula and Anglesey Coastal Path. The most scenic, Snowdon Ranger and Rhyd- Ddu are easily accessible from the property. Cycling is an ever increasing past time in the area.

Lon Eifion also affords you a choice of detours. The area is also ideal for serious road cyclists and mountain bikers. Ride stages of the famous Snowdonia Etape route from the house or explore the local mountain paths. There is a bike store at the property for your use.

    We loved staying in this cottage, and the view to the sea from the comfortable and sturdy outside chairs was absolutely amazing (on a clear day!). The cottage interior is comfortable and welcoming, clean and simple but with everything you need.

    Had a wonderful week, the cottage was almost perfect. The only downside to me was the elderly and inefficient oven. Everything else was wonderful and would definitely return.
