This cottage is a rare find. Stunning location, true peace and quiet, quality interior and comfortable beds. If you are looking for seclusion and an escape from the world, this cottage will take you there. All we could hear were sheep, birds and the wind blowing. Just perfect.

Mrs D,

Beautiful cosy cottage in outstanding location if you want peace and tranquility. Stunning views of the mountains. Plenty of wonderful walks and good easy access to local towns such as Barmouth and Dolgellau. Take the trains and busses too if you want to go further. You will not be disappointed here.

Mr Royston E,


Detached and secluded, this Barmouth self catering accommodation enjoys a stunning location just 2 miles from the seaside town of Barmouth on the North Wales Coast. Set within Snowdonia National Park, the cottage is a stone's throw from the scenic 'Panorama walk', only higher. With the height advantage, it all becomes even prettier - and more private of course.

Barmouth itself has been a popular seaside holiday destination since Victorian times and offers a wide range of amenities. This includes a range of shops and a supermarket and plenty of good restaurants such as Bistro Bermo, The Tilman and The Last Inn. Other recommended places to eat includes The Norbar and Ninteen 57, just a few miles further up the coast.

Amongst the popular attractions in the area, Barmouth itself has a wonderful, Blue Flag Beach with spectacular views of the mountains and lovely walks along the Mawddach Estuary. Portmeirion’s Italian Village and Porthmadog with its Welsh Highland Railway are both well worth a visit, whilst ZipWorld at Blaenau Ffestiniog offers an adrenaline fuelled day out. Add to that the World Heritage Site of Harlech Castle which overlooks one of the best golf courses in the world and the world renowned mountain biking centre at Coed y Brenin near Dolgellau and there is something for everyone, all within a 20 mile radius.
