Sat atop a hill at the foot of Snowdonia National Park, this 400 year old stone cottage has been lovingly renovated to create a comfortable retreat packed full of countryside charm. Inside, original ceiling beams and an inglenook fireplace create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Look forward to spending blustery days holed up in the cosy living space before sitting down to a home-cooked roast dinner in the farmhouse-style kitchen. When the sun makes an appearance, spill out into the garden with a jug of Pimm’s and admire your unspoilt surroundings from the picnic bench. If you’d like to expend some energy, lace up your hiking shoes and follow one of many bridleways that unfold from your doorstep. Should a beach day be on the cards, Black Rock Sands Beach is less than a twenty-five-minute drive away. After a day of sea swims and windswept coastal walks, nip into the town of Porthmadog for fish and chips by the harbour and a well-deserved pint in a traditional pub.

About Porthmadog

Sandwiched between the sea and the mountains, this corner of Wales has some striking scenery to swoon over. And staying here gives you the best of both worlds – sweeping sands and rugged mountain tops, all in one day. Plus, if you like a narrow gauge, you’re in luck – Porthmadog is a hub for small tourist trains. There are three of them in all, perfect for lazy days pootling...
