It’s that lovely time of year; all the colours outside are changing, there is a chill in the air and when the evening comes in, its time to light the fire. A fireplace is part of the course here in Snowdonia and so if you want to enjoy the pleasure of one whilst on holiday, here are our top 5 cosy holiday cottages for Autumn retreats….
Llys-Derwin is a magical character holiday cottage near Criccieth in North Wales. Built in the 16th century with the blood money of King Henry VIII in his effort to influence the nearby monastery the cottage is a fascinating combination of old world charm and modern comforts.
Ty Newydd is a romantic one bedroom holiday cottage in Bala North Wales. This simple yet elegant cottage provides self catering holiday accommodation for up to two people in a beautifully tranquil location.
Nant, which means brook or spring in welsh and refers to the small brook that runs past this cottage, is a two bedroom self catering barn conversion in Dyffryn Ardudwy. Its difficult for me to be objective when describing Nant as its the larger of the two self catering cottages that we let out ourselves here on the farm. But I hope you’ll agree when I say they’re nicely furnished and decorated.
This traditional stone barn has been converted into a one bedroom character holiday cottage on a working farm near Pwllheli in North Wales. There are 5 holiday cottages on the farm altogether. All very professionally run and spotlessly clean. Guests have the added luxury of a small on site spa cabin with hot tub, sauna and treatment room.
The renovation of Llwyncelyn, a picturesque holiday cottage in Dinas Mawddwy, has obviously been a labour of love for owners Paul and Di. Their care and attention to detail during the restoration process is apparent in every corner of this lovely two bedroom stone built cottage in Dinas Mawddwy.
