  • Quaint and colourful period property nestling in the beautiful Ogwen Valley
  • A rural bolthole for a small family or group keen to explore Eryri - Snowdonia National Park
  • Relax on the decked area of an enclosed garden dominated by a natural slate rock feature
Property code: OC-BOW234

Located in the village of Bethesda and on the doorstep of Eryri - Snowdonia National Park, sits this charming two-bedroom property. Originally a quarry workers house, it has been converted into a bright, contemporary home and is an ideal base for a couple or a small family wanting relaxation, outdoor activity, and nearby amenities.

Step into the cheerful lounge with its plump sofas, wood flooring, and splash of bold colour on the wall. Flooded by natural light, it’s a comfortable space to sit and chat and there’s even a realistic looking gas woodburner style stove to keep things snug on chillier nights. Homely extras include potted plants, an elegant mirror, and ambient lighting. When mealtime beckons, you’ll find plenty of appliances in the kitchen to create a delicious dinner then serve it at the table with seating for four people. You’ll want to sit and linger over a meal while soaking up the glorious mountain views through the window. As the evening draws to an end, head upstairs to the two bedrooms and choose between a lovely king-size and a single bed. There’s also a thoroughly modern bathroom on this floor. Back on ground level, a pretty garden dotted with plants and trees is the perfect spot for a quiet coffee. Sit at the outdoor table and listen to the birdsong while gazing at the incredible mountain views.

Hikers can enjoy lake and valley walks straight from the door with Ogwen Valley and Eryri - Snowdonia National Park right on your doorstep. Adventure lovers will also love Zip World (0.5 miles) where those with a head for heights can spend an afternoon flying over the Penrhyn Quarry on a zip line. Also worth a visit is Penrhyn Castle (5 miles). Explore inside this striking 19th-century castle, view the fine art collection, and admire the views of Snowdonia from the extensive gardens.

Great cottage and location etc as per scores. The only minor thing is that, for me, it was not overly "comfy/cosy". Oddly there seemed to be a number of missing pictures from the walls, that may have warmed it up a bit. The living room was a bit echoey - a rug on the floor may have helped and made it more homely too. Due to the time of year I had Read moreto sit inside most the time (one day a used the patio outside) - with no large widows or views from inside this was not so good - but this isn't something you can change!! But it comes down to personal taste and not a criticism of the cottage - I'm sure others would have different views. Hide

The cottage was lovely. But we were disappointed with the location Bethesda was maybe a bit busy and not quaint enough for us. I think that wasn't made clear in the description that we were in such a surrounded overlooked area And house. Inside the house was immaculate we loved the house
