A large entrance hall leads off to a joyful playroom, a spacious utility room complete with washing machine and tumble dryer, a convenient ground floor WC and then finally a wonderful country cottage kitchen.The kitchen includes some nice cream fitted units under a dark work surface all sitting on a quarry-tiled floor. An impressive cooking range sits to one side of the room whilst a large fridge freezer stands proudly near the window. The kitchen is also large enough to accommodate a small breakfast table and chairs. A separate larder ensures that there’s plenty of room for all the supplies that your family will need during your stay.
Family diners can have no better stage than the adjoining dining room. A large oval table is surrounded by some beautiful wooden chairs. A small log fire within a stone fireplace helps create a wonderful cozy atmosphere helped, of course, by the warm floor tiles. Some antique furniture and beautiful side lamps add a real touch of class to the room.
The lounge houses another log fire. A larger version this time sitting within a striking inglenook fireplace. A large flat screen tv sits to one side and a sumptuous wrap around sofa curves around the opposite two walls. Some lovely wall lighting and a sash window overlooking the surrounding fields provides light.
We return to the dining room to climb the stairs to the first floor. 5 bedrooms in total. Two double rooms, two twin rooms and one smaller child’s room with some bunk beds. All the bedrooms are beautifully furnished. A perfect mix of colours and fabrics has created individual rooms with their own character whilst sharing a real sense of style and grace. Outdone only by the views from the windows perhaps.
The master bedroom at the far end of the house has its own en-suite bathroom with modern shower. Two more family bathrooms on this floor. One of which has a large enameled bath in addition to the WC and washbasin. The second family bathroom has a shower, WC and washbasin.

As described, the cottage is in an idyllic location. Fields of grazing sheep surround the cottage with panoramic views in every direction beyond. Peace and tranquility is guaranteed and guests are encouraged to explore the surrounding countryside by foot whenever possible.
A 20 minute car journey south however will bring you to the town of Bala. Bala is a charming example of a welsh market town and a wonderful mix of traditional welsh culture and contemporary shops and cafés. The surrounding area has long established itself as a Mecca for adventure activities. You will pass the world renowned Tryweryn white water centre on the way into town. Fishing, sailing and windsurfing can also be enjoyed enjoyed on Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake). The Coed Y Brennin Mountain Biking centre is about half an hour further on.
Sitting as it does on the Eastern edge of the National Park, this part of Snowdonia has the natural benefit of being easily accessible from the English road network. If you continue a little further west however visitors to the cottage can be in the popular tourist town of Betws Y Coed, catching a steam train from Blaenau ffestiniog or ascending the slopes of Snowdon from Llanberis.
