If blue flag beaches, unforgettable walks between mountain and sea and a round of golf with castle and sea views is your idea of a holiday in Wales then this is the cottage for you. 5 minutes walk from a golden beach, this beautiful North Wales cottage is ideally located for peace and quiet whilst within walking distance of Barmouth for shopping, food and a little flutter at the arcades.

This detached self catering cottage is located in Llanaber, 1 mile from Barmouth on the North Wales coast and just a 5 minute walk to an amazing blue flag beach. Conveniently close to Barmouth (shops, restaurants etc), the cottage also benefits from having one foot in the countryside, with walks leading to the hills from the doorstep.
And then you have Mawddach Way, including the beautiful Barmouth Bridge crossing that can be joined 1 mile away. It has been said that there is "no better walk than from Barmouth through to Dolgellau other than from Dolgellau to Barmouth". The views of the Snowdonia mountains sweeping down to the Mawddach estuary are phenomenal, an experience not to be missed, especially at sunset.
10 miles north along the coast is the picturesque village of Harlech with its nationally and internationally renowned golf course in a breathtaking setting, dominated by the brooding presence of Harlech Castle. For keen mountain bikers, the world renowned Coed y Brenin mountain biking centre is also nearby.
The ferry crossing from Barmouth to Fairbourne and the steam train at Fairbourne offers another great day out, just minutes from Beudy Taicroesion cottage. If you have time, the Italian village of Portmeirion is also worth a visit and with Snowdonia National Park being so close, a walk to the top of Snowdon could well be on the cards.
