This beautifully restored, detached stone cottage, is in a truly stunning location. Ochr Y Foel is set within the forested surroundings of Llyn Crafnant and has outstanding views over the lake and beyond. (If you are bringing dogs, please note that there is no enclosed garden; the grounds are extensive but open, shared with the owner and her dogs.) Situated in one of the most scenic parts of the Snowdonia National Park, this cottage benefits from being in a superb rural location, yet within easy driving distance of both the coast and the many of the attractions of Snowdonia. Access is by a single track road, 4 miles to Trefiw, 6 miles to Llanrwst, 8 miles to Betws-y-Coed and 13 miles to Conwy.

3 *dog friendly* dogs accepted at no extra charge *owner has dogs* (please check with Wales cottage Holidays for the owner’s Pet Terms and Conditions; this can be sent to you via email)

Living Room: Victorian range with an open fire (initial logs provided, then at cost), comfortable seating, TV/DVD/Freeview/Video, radio/CD and payphone. WiFi at the property can be slow on occasion due to the rural location.

Bedroom 1: Double bed with antique brass bedstead.

Bedroom 2: Twin beds with antique wooden bed frames.

Ochr y Foel is set within 6 acres of land, shared with the owner next door, with a terraced garden to the rear. The garden furniture is positioned to make the most of the stunning views and paths lead down through the garden to the lakeside pebble beach. Undercover bike storage is available.

There are fabulous walks and mountain bike trails from the door. A circular walk makes its way around the lake and there is a delightful lakeside cafe open during the summer. Trout fishing on the lake. A small shop, pub and cafe in Trefiw (4 miles) along with a working woollen mill and craft shop. Further shops and all the facilities of a small town can be found at the market town of Llanrwst or the ever popular Betws-y-Coed.

We had a wonderful holiday, staying in the first week of June with perfect weather. The cottage was ideal for the two of us with everything we needed for our stay and with lovely views. It was clean and very Covid safe. Excellent walks on the doorstep meant we hardly used the car. The owners were very friendly and helpful.
