Spectacular cottage in every sense. The attention to detail, the handmade kitchen and table, the welcoming log burner and deep oval bath, all complemented by an amazing location between the Snowdonia mountains and North Wales coast. Sea views from the grounds and on a clear day, you can even see the train going up Snowdon. Central to numerous golden beaches and castles as well as some of the best attractions in Wales, including Greenwood Family Park, ZipWorld and Portmeirion. Near Llanllyfni, it is also central to the popular towns of Caernarfon (8 miles), Cricieth (10 miles), Porthmadog (12.5 miles) and Pwllheli (16 miles). This is the place to enjoy North Wales in style.

Set on a working farm with tranquil surroundings, this 5 star cottage used to be the barn where 5 generations of the family would have previously milked the cows. As part of the Warm Welsh Welcome that you can expect, the family also run a successful bakery business from the farm, supplying cakes such as Bara Brith, Welsh Cakes and other tasty goodies to over 100 shops across North West Wales. You will get to sample some of these in your welcome basket, with the knowledge that if you like them, you can purchase more straight from the oven. You will also have a vineyard and brewery on your doorstep.

Had a great stay at cwrt y llyn with all the comforts you need ,comfy beds, spacious bathrooms, beautiful location with great views which would have been unbelievable but for the weather, fortunately the underfloor heating downstairs and cosy logburner kept us very snug. Open-plan living suited us with the well equipped kitchen and large dining table.
