    About this property

    This pretty stone-built, semi-detached cottage is set in an elevated, rural location, and enjoys some wonderful views of the countryside down to the Tremadog Bay estuary, situated just five miles from Harlech and five miles from Porthmadog in the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales. This delightful cottage offers the perfect romantic rural retreat for a couple, and combines traditional with some modern and contemporary twists in styling. Decorated in warming greys and neutral shades, this charming cottage is full of charm and character with exposed beams and wonderful stone fireplace housing a warm and welcoming woodburner in the sitting room, perfect for those chillier evenings, relax and snuggle up after enjoying a romantic candlelit meal. The kitchen is small, but modern and well-equipped and upstairs the bedroom boasts a king-size bed and some wonderful views over the garden, encompassing countryside scenery and wonderful estuary views and well, what can we say, the bathroom is just superb! Spacious and bright with a separate shower and a beautiful freestanding roll top slipper bath on claw feet, perfect for a long soak and a bit of pampering after a day on the mountains, nothing quite like it to soothe those aching muscles! Outside is a large enclosed lawned garden with furniture, a peaceful haven to sit and enjoy the fresh air and wonderful scenery. There are numerous walks from the doorstep, two particular favourites are to the Llyn Tecwyn Isaf, a beautiful lake only 300 yards or so from the cottage. Follow the lane around the lake and walk up to Llyn Tecwyn Uchaf where solitude is in abundance and the peaceful atmosphere is deafening, not to mention the great fishing here! Walking past Llyn Tecwyn Isaf keeping to the left head up to the small Welsh Victorian church and ancient churchyard, the views are stunning and the atmosphere surreal and spiritual, definitely worth a visit. The golden sandy beach at Harlech and the renowned Royal St. David's Golf Club are only a short drive away. Visit the beautiful Italianate village and gardens of Portmeirion and the delightful harbour town of Porthmadog, with its array of shops, tea rooms and eating establishments and also home to the Welsh Highland and Ffestiniog Steam Railways. Blaenau Ffestiniog is also close by with the Llechwedd slate caverns, Zip World Titan, Bounce Below, an underground trampoline, and Zip World Caverns. This cottage provides a great rural base any time of the year for a relaxing and enjoyable break away. Note: This cottage is next door to Ref.11143, together they sleep 6.

    Llandecwyn is a scattered rural hamlet in North Wales, which stands amidst farmland, hills with lakes and mountains, which are all perfect for scenic walks and mountain biking. Llandecwyn is set on the National Cycle Route 8, plus birdwatching can be enjoyed on the red kite waymarked trail, which passes through the hamlet. There are also birdwatching opportunities along the coast and at the rspb Osprey project, which is nearby.

    Mrs Hemmingway ‐ 1 Aug 2019
    " Not sure if you already know but the ivy is growing through the bed room window frame it could cause some damage we had it happen here at home. "
    Mrs Macgregor ‐ 1 Jul 2019
    " There was also only a small amount of toilet roll. Otherwise it was cosy with good views of the bay & hills through the trees. The walk up the hill to the lake takes just a few minutes & further up the hill there are fantastic views. Very peaceful. "
    Mrs Moulton ‐ 1 Mar 2019
    " Two small gripes - lack of space to walk around the bottom of the bed, making it difficult to make the bed. Realise the bed is placed facing the window for the view, but when in bed you can't really see the estuary. It appeared that if the bed was turned 90 degrees, and it was 'alongside' the window, there would be more room to move around the bed. Currently, the bedside cabinets would not fit, but if slightly smaller cabinets were used, I consider this would work. Secondly, please change the heating from storage heaters to another form of central heating. The house became very warm from about 3 - 4am, and then quite cool in the evening, despite using the 'boost' on two of the heaters. "
    Mrs Thomas ‐ 1 Feb 2019
    " A truly stunning location, with beautiful views all around and a tranquil setting. Wonderful. "
    Ms Protherough ‐ 1 Dec 2018
    "The views are breathtaking, the local area is fantastic for walking (particularly with our dogs who loved the beaches) and the cottage itself is cosy and warm when we returned. The break was exactly what we needed and sitting by the woodburner quietly writing Christmas Cards was the perfect antidote to the stress of the build up to Christmas.We would highly recommend this cottage and we intend to return."
    Mrs Dorman ‐ 1 Oct 2018
    "Good off road parking, with easy access to all of North and Mid Wales. The cottage itself is warm, cosy and clean with a very comfortable bed and bath. The kitchen although small has everything you need for your holiday except a washing machine which was not a problem for us. We slept like logs all week with the windows open to take advantage of the peace and fresh night air. Amazing to hear the owl hooting in the night and we got a dawn chorus of birds outside the window. The owners and caretakers are very approachable and friendly who will sort any problems or queries really quickly but leave you to enjoy your holiday in peace. Even though it was a cottage which took dogs we did not find any evidence that a dog had previously been there. Can't wait to book again for next year."
    Mr Green ‐ 1 Sep 2018
    "However it was generally dirty there were quite a few cobwebs the walls were dusty and the hard floors looked as though they needed a good wash.This could be easily put right with a good spring clean."
    Ms Churchill ‐ 1 Aug 2018
    "The cottage was well worth the drive through some very steep and narrow lanes, although we rarely encountered other traffic and there were passing places."
    Mr Bennett ‐ 1 Jun 2018
    "Fantastic views , . a lake just around the corner . The lane up to the cottage was only a cars width but did have several passing spots. We would definitely go again."
    Mr Bennett ‐ 1 Jun 2018
    "The cottage was lovely, well maintained, We found it a good base for most destinations, Portmerion and Porthmadoc both within 10 mins, small village with fish and chip shop, Indian and Chinese takeaways just across the bridge. Fantastic views , . a lake just around the corner ."
    Mrs Wright ‐ 1 May 2018
    "It had a lovely bathroom and was also perfectly situated and the views over the estuary were fabulous. Go further up the lane over the cattle grid and see the lake then fork left and go up to the gorgeous old church and see the views from there. We would happily recommend this property and will hopefully stay there again. No complaints it was perfect."
    Mrs Breakwell
    "nice cottage lovely views, tv very small, very steep long winding lane, nice enclosed garden for dog, comfortable bed, nice and clean and welcoming, quite remote but as weather was good most days it was ok, all in all a good holiday."

    "Great location great views easy to get too and a great all round cottage. Didn't want to leave and would go back in a heart beat"
    Mrs Booth,
    "The house is in a wonderfully peaceful location, great for walking as there are so many routes close by and it was also fantastic for access to Portmeirion and Porthmadog. The house was perfectly set out with more than adequate pans, crockery and utensils. The bathroom was outstanding!"

    "Thank you."

    "The scenery was amazing as well us the utter lack of traffic noise. The cottage was well worth the drive through some very steep and narrow lanes, although we rarely encountered other traffic and there were passing places. Occasionally a sheep wandered into the garden and we saw so many birds in the garden; it was lovely to see so many different types."

    "As this property is pet friendly it might be worth considering laying more stepping stones across the grass to avoid excessive muddy paws in wet weather."
    - Mrs Wright, May 2018

Down sides was frying pan was not useable ( just nit picking ) and the lane up to the cottage was only a cars width but did have several passing spots. We would definitely go again."
    - Mrs Sewell, July 2018
    "Having a shared garden with adjoining cottage but only one picnic bench between two families was not adequate. Were there for 10 nights but no clean sheets for changing only pillowcases and no washing machine so again not adequate. Leaflets for activities 2015- 2017 could do with a clearout but apart from those niggles a lovely cottage."
    - Miss Richards, April 2019
    "Beautiful house with a view to complement, little lane going up from the main road just to note. A very short drive to the main town of Porthmadog where there is a beautiful harbour, ideal to sit with fish and chip on an evening. Plenty of walks and things to do in the area, main attraction being Zip World only a 20 minute drive away. We cannot wait to book again for the summer, thank you for a lovely stay."
    - Mr Selby, September 2019
