Glandwr is a traditional stone holiday cottage in Cwm Nantcol above the picturesque village of Llanbedr in North Wales. This three-bedroom cottage on the banks of the river Artro is within easy reach of both the mountains and the sea and provides a great base for families wanting to explore this lovely part of Snowdonia.

Traditional Stone Holiday Cottage in Cwm Nantcol

A spacious kitchen/diner houses a traditional country cottage style kitchen on a quarry tile floor. A traditional Aga type oven provides the heat and hot water and large robust dining table provides plenty of room for family meals. The large picture window in front of the sink will help mum and dad keep an eye on the children playing in the back garden as they tidy everything away after dinner.

The lounge next door is equally spacious with two large sofas flanking a warming log burner set within the original inglenook fireplace. Exposed beams and whitewashed stone walls are complemented by more modern lighting and a flat screen TV. The adjoining conservatory is a great space to escape to on warm summer evenings.

There are three bedrooms upstairs. The largest master bedroom has a wonderful king-sized bed centrally located under a vaulted roof. Plenty of storage space is provided and the window has a lovely view of the back garden. The bedroom next door is quite a bit smaller but still has room for a double bed. The third bedroom is a charming single room with a Victorian style bed. The bathroom is also on this first floor. This includes a shower over bath arrangement as well as a WC and washbasin.

Llanbedr, a 10 minute walk from the cottage, is a very friendly and picturesque village on the Cambrian coast road just south of Harlech. There are a couple of pubs, a cafe and grocery store in the village.  Another 10 minute walk from there will bring you down to the famous beaches at Shell Island.

Ten minutes away by car, the towns of Harlech and Barmouth offer a larger choice of restaurants and shops. Lot’s of adventure type activities around, including white water rafting, mountain biking, pony trekking etc. Others might enjoy more cultured attrations. The medieval castles, prehistoric structures, and narrow gauge railways that dot a landscape steeped in history.

Snowdon and her sisters are a 30 minute drive away. But, if you’re a keen walker, Cwm Nantcol and the Rhinog Mountains just behind the cottage remains one of the UK’s true wildernesses. The mountains here are arguably every bit as spectacular, but benefit from being a bit more undiscovered; at the moment at least.
