Clogwyn-Cottage is a luxurious farm holiday cottage at the foot of Snowdon – one of two self catering barn conversions on a working farm on the western slopes in Rhyd Ddu. This two-bedroom holiday cottage offers superior accommodation for up to 4 people in an idyllic and tranquil setting.
The entrance porch of the cottage leads us into a large open plan living area. Two sumptuous leather sofas and plump scatter cushions face onto a warming wood burner sitting on a slate hearth. A modern digital TV hangs on the wall next to expensive hand made roman blinds that open to revel the surrounding countryside.
The adjoining kitchen diner has some beautiful hand painted fitted units covered in a speckled granite worktop. An electric oven, induction hob and dishwasher are all included. The circular dining table is more simple yet every bit as elegant. Traditional ledge and brace doors and solid oak flooring completes the country cottage look.
The two bedrooms sit at either side of the cottage. At the southern end we find a wonderfully right and sunny king sized bedroom with a huge fitted wardrobe concealed behind large oak doors. A large picture window offers views over the
small patio and onto the mountains beyond.
At the other end of the cottage we come to an equally lovely twin room. Two Victorian style iron beds are covered in Egyptian white cotton sheets and a beautiful teal bed throw with scatter cushions and roman blinds to match. Subtle decorative features are, as in the rest of the cottage, dotted gracefully here and there.
The family bathroom is spacious and accommodates a white bathroom suite including a large bath with shower over, a wc and wash basin.

The great thing about staying on a working farm on Snowdon is that you have your own private access to the summit. The famous Snowdon Ranger path and Rhyd Ddu path flank both sides of the farm however and, less experienced walkers, might prefer to use these well marked routes to ascend the tallest peak in England and Wales.
Another highlight of this location is the Welsh Highland Steam railway that fights it’s way from the historic castle town of Caernarfon to the north down to the Horbour of Porthmadog to the south. Stopping off at the nearby Rhyd Ddu station as well as Beddgelert and Pont Croesor this most picturesque narrow gauge track is a fantastic way of exploring and enjoying the surrounding countryside.
Just the one pub in the village, but luckily the Cwellyn arms is fantastic and offers a great selection of real ales and home cooked meals. The village also has a lovely tearoom. Ty Mawr is most famous for it’s pancakes perhaps but also serves a delicious cooked breakfast if your feeling a little lazy one morning and, if you pre order they’ll even prepare a packed lunch for later on in the day for you.
All the usual activities associated with North Wales are within easy reach including fishing, horse riding, mountain biking and rock climbing. (The owners can arrange stabling for you horse if required. Please ask for details.)
