The Grade II listed cottage is in the mountain village of Dolwyddelan, in the beautiful Lledr Valley. It is a totally unspoiled part of Snowdonia, surrounded by the magnificent Gwydir Forest and beautiful off-the-beaten track walks.
Whatever the season, the landscapes in this part of the world are strikingly beautiful. There are countless quiet walks from the cottage. One of our favourites is along the ‘hidden valley’ which takes in forest tracks, waterfalls, tumbling streams and even an ancient burial chamber.
Step a little further afield to explore some of Snowdonia’s best peaks including Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon), Moel Siabod, Moel Penamen, Carnedd Cribau and Y Pincin to name but a few. The UK’s National Outdoor Centre, Plas-y-Brenin, is a 20 minute drive away. The centre offers expert tuition in climbing, hiking, rafting, kayaking and mountain biking.
Snowdonia is the adventure capital of Europe, and some of the region’s most popular attractions – including Zip World, Bounce Below, Llechwedd Slate Caverns and Antur Stiniog downhill mountain biking – are around 5 minutes drive from the cottage, in Blaenau Ffestiniog.
Porthmadog, Portmeirion, and Criccieth, the gateway to the Llŷn Peninsula, are a very pleasant short drive (around 30 minutes) away. At Porthmadog you can board the Welsh Highland and Ffestiniog heritage railways to explore the region by steam. There are lots of shops to explore here, as well as very decent ice cream, fish and chips.
Head just a few miles east of Dolwyddelan – around 15 minutes by car – to get to Betws y Coed. This popular Snowdonia town is a thriving community, packed full of cafés, shops, and nice places to eat. There are some lovely circular walks around the town.

Dolwyddelan’s location on a strategic mountain pass heading into the wilds of Snowdonia means it has plenty of history. When you visit, do make time to look around the village’s 13th century castle, and find out why it played such a pivotal role in Welsh history.
