North Wales Holiday Cottage with Sea Views | Yr-Efail

..panoramic sea views..
..modern features..
..sun terrace..

A modern oak dining table and chairs sits one end of the room complimented by some select ornaments and paintings. At the other end of the room a luxuriously large sofa sits facing onto a pleasing living flame fire. The rug, curtains and soft furnishings are all beautifully chosen.

From here we can access what is perhaps the best thing about this house, the wonderful sun terrace. Split onto two levels with wooden decking this is the perfect place for guests those sea views.

I can well imagine Dad taking charge of the BBQ, some local welsh lamb perhaps or welsh black beef steaks. The rest of the family sit and chat at the patio table drinking chilled white wine and tumblers of squash pilled high with ice.

Back inside we turn right into the kitchen. Modern cream units sit under a black worktop. All the modern features you would expect including a dishwasher, washing machine, large fan oven, induction hob and second combination oven. A glass panel door also offers access back out onto the sun terrace.

As mentioned there are three bedrooms downstairs. Each room is beautifully decorated and each has large modern comfortable beds. The beautifully tiled family bathroom has a bath with shower sized en-suite bathroom.

Dyffryn Ardudwy is a lovely little village half way between Harlech and Barmouth on the Cambrian Coast Road. Two pubs in the village. The first is within easy walking distance the other is a little further but still no need for the car. The post office, grocery shop and butchers are also only a short distance from the house. The larger towns of Harlech and Barmouth are 5 minutes away by car and offer more choice of shops and restaurants etc.

The beach in the village is fantastic. Huge rolling sand dunes stretch up and down this part of the coastline. Wonderfully clean water and gently sloping coastline provides a safe environment for all ages.

The mountains behind the house are a big favourite of many who know this area. Cwm Nantcol and Cwm Bychan must count among the most beautiful mountain valleys in the National Park. As well as mountain walking the more adventurous might enjoy white water rafting on the Tryweryn river, mountain biking at Coed Y Brenin or gorge walking with our friends at Snowdonia Adventure Activities.

    Once again we really enjoyed our stay at this lovely cottage in a wonderful location. Think it was our 4th time at Yr Efail.
    Sadly the welcome hamper was missing this time.

  2. Alan & Alex Palmer says:

    Thanks for a great stay. Excellent cottage. Really comfortable.

    Great idea having the sitting room and kitchen upstairs, to make the most of the view.

    Just a couple of small requests – it could do with some instructions – how to use the oven, microwave, etc., and a chopping board would be helpful.

    Thanks again.

  5. Jo Atkinson says:

    Lovely cottage with all you could ever need and more. The cottage is situated in a lovely location so you can explore a variety of different places. The ability to be able to sit out on the balcony to eat was nice on a dry day.

  6. Lisa Selway says:

    The owners are very friendly, nothing too much trouble. We were very impressed with the standard of fitments, furniture and workmanship and very well equipped. Plenty of room for a family of 6. We can definitely recommend this superb house. The beach is about 30-40 minutes walk. There is a Spar, Post Office, Garage and Cafe in the village, all within walking distance. Great location.

  7. Ben Adams says:

    We enjoyed our stay at Yr Efail. Good location for Benar and Harlech beaches and trips to Cadair Idris and Borth y Gest. Very comfortable beds and space to relax in this nicely finished property which we would recommend.

    We missed out on dish clothes, dish washer tablets and tea towels but a quick trip to the Spar sorted that.

  8. Katherine Windsor says:

    We had a fabulous week here, the house was perfect size for a family of 5 and beautifully clean and very functional. Location was great for getting out and about and making the most of the surrounding areas.
