Set at the foot of Snowdon, Iorwerth House is a lovingly renovated quarrymans cottage in Rhyd Ddu. Being in the heart of Snowdonia, there are incredible views on your doorstep making it the perfect place to explore the region alongside a bit of rest and relaxation.
A large inglenook fireplace complete with log burner greets you as you come through the front door. The predominantly modern style furniture fits really well in this room alongside the exposed stonework and individual character pieces which you will find dotted around the house.
Through into a galley kitchen where you will find everything you need during your stay. New farm style kitchen units alongside modern appliances will make cooking for your holiday group a joy. The large fridge freezer is also a welcome touch.
The dining room is home to an amazing dining table, a real show piece of the room. The log burner will make this a beautiful room to while away the evenings after dinner, especially in the winter.
Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms; 2 double rooms and 2 single rooms. All the bedrooms, as you would expect, have been beautifully refurbished with one of the doubles having the added luxury of a balcony overlooking the stunning rear garden which in turn leads your eye up to the slopes of Snowdon. Lovely furniture and soft furnishing give the bedrooms a very clean and airy feel. The family bathroom is also located on this floor with a shower over the bath.

The outside space of this cottage is really pretty. Stone steps from the kitchen leads you up onto a grass area through a lovely path of ever green foliage, so if you are into gardening, the array of plants here, will be of interest.
The village of Rhyd Ddu gives its name to one of the more popular Snowdon paths and so if you are staying here, climbing the biggest mountain in Wales (and England) will probably be on your list of things to do. No having to think about parking and getting on the Sherpa bus here, the garden gate leads to the Rhyd Ddu and Snowdon Range path while the Nantlle Ridge path is only a few minutes walk away.
Being in Rhyd Ddu, you are a stones throw from one of the calling points for the Ffestiniog Welsh Highland railway which will take you to Porthmadog in one direction and Caernarfon in the other. There is also a lovely cafe in the village to get your morning coffee of afternoon tea and cake.
You are also very well placed to explore the other great towns and villages in the area. Llanberis is home to Electric Mountain and the National Slate Museum, Beddgelert has some lovely cafes and gift shops, and Betws Y Coed is home to the famous Swallow Waterfalls. Activities like Zip World and Surf Snowdonia are within a 30 minute drive. There are also plenty of watersports available to take part in on the lakes along with the obvious walking and cycling opportunities available here.
