Taking your dog on holiday is a must for some. Who could deny them the pleasure of joining you on walks in the mountains, along the rivers and on the beaches in beautiful Snowdonia!
If you are looking to holiday in North Wales this year with pets in tow, we have put together our top 5 Pet friendly holiday cottages to get you started:
The renovation of this disused farmhouse on the banks of the river Dyfrdwy outside Llanuwchllyn has been a labour of love for local farmer Geraint Edwards. And his efforts and attention to detail are evident through out the property. The use of traditional materials and the general layout of this self catering cottage near Bala is faultless. The scenic backdrop to this picturesque cottage is, of course, the cherry on the cake.
Ymwlch-Fawr is a three-bedroom Georgian country house on the western edge of the Snowdonia National Park. Lots of original character features remain; high ceilings, oak wood flooring, log fires and some wonderful period furniture including a Steinway piano. A garden party attended by Prime Minister Lloyd George and his wife Margaret was hosted at the property adding to its historical value. The house provides a great base to explore this part of North Wales. Cwm Pennant and the famous Nantlle Ridge is a short 5-minute drive to the east. A similar 5-minute drive to the south will bring you to the beautiful beaches of Criccieth.
Cefn-Isaf, a self catering barn conversion with sea views, is located in a spectacular position on a Welsh mountain farm. Behind the cottage, ancient oak woodland stand bravely at the foot of the rugged slopes of the Rhinog mountains. In front, hills of green grass roll down to the picturesque seaside village of Llanbedr and the beautiful Cardigan Bay Coastline beyond. A truly idyllic holiday location.
Llywi-Mach is a two bedroom, unique holiday cottage high in the hills above Machynlleth. Set on a working farm there are stunning views out over the Dovey valley. With modern interiors and its farm location, it’s both rural and stylish at the same time.
Ysgubor-y-Coed is a traditional farm holiday cottage near Betws-y-Coed in Snowdonia, North Wales. This beautifully presented cottage is the ideal getaway for couples or families. Recently renovated, this traditional Welsh stone cottage offers high quality accommodation as well as a window (or several) on to farming life in North Wales. You can expect a warm Welsh welcome in what is an idyllic rural location.
