In an elevated position, 400ft above sea level, this 400-year-old detached cottage enjoys a dramatic backdrop of mountains and spectacular views over Caernarfon Bay. Lovingly restored and gently modernised, it offers not only peace and seclusion, but is also close to the rugged splendour of the Snowdonia National Park, fine sandy beaches, stunning mountain walks and the charming village of Trefor. There are two excellent beaches near the cottage. One is a gently sloping sandy harbour about 10 minutes’ walk through the village from the village shop, which is used by local fishermen to launch their boats. The other one is reached by walking towards the quarry past the local village pub and post office. It is a pebble beach which will stretch the most challenging beachcomber. In addition, the cottage is a short walk from one of the most famous Iron Age hill forts in Wales - Tre Ceiri, The Town of Giants, at the back of the cottage. The foundations and walls of the Iron Age huts are still remaining and the gold torques excavated from the ruins are on display at the National Museum of Wales. All in all, an ideal holiday retreat for families and weekend escapes throughout the year. Shop 2 miles.

Cottage was very pretty in lovely location but very dirty. We had to clean the bathroom before it was usable. Beds upstairs very uncomfortable.

This cottage is located in a beautiful bit of country side up the side of a mountain. It would have beautiful views of the sea but trees have grown so you can't see it. The toilet would not flush away waste sufficient and as the bathroom is accessible via kitchen it made unpleasant smell. The oven didn't cook properly took forever to cook anything. The TV/dvd player in upstairs bedroom does not work. The stereo in sitting room does not work. The blind in ceiling window in double room is broken so can't close it. Also getting through the gate is a struggle because of the angle of the gate to the road. This is a shame because it has the potential to be amazing.

This is a hidden gem of a cottage. The view is amazing and if a quiet country cottage close to the coastal walks and pretty little beaches is what you are looking for this is ideal. The children loved the loft bedroom, rope swing and local wildlife. The drive way caused a bit of an issue as we have a mini bus so was a bit tight but otherwise I really like this place and will definitely be back.
