QUIET 17TH CENTURY MOUNTAIN COTTAGE IN SNOWDONIA NAT. PARK

Llanrwst Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Peaceful mountain cottage sleeps 4-6

Situated a mile away from its only occupied neighbour, the property is an extended 17th century cottage in 13 acres of it's own land on the foothills of the Carneddau mountains. 875 feet above the Conwy Valley, with no neighbours and just a view of the mountains and woodland, it gives you complete peace and quiet. Away from everything!

The accommodation comprises of two double bedrooms and a double sofa bed. The living room retains the original ‘upstairs’ of a traditional Welsh cottage, which is now the balcony/third bedroom, which is accessed by a narrow stair. A dining area is below the balcony. Comfortable for sleeping 4 – 6 people. With bags of character, it's open to the roof with exposed beams, slate floor and wood burner.

Recently fitted shower room and toilet, kitchen and hallway. Free wireless internet, plenty of parking. Patio area with outside seats.

Access is via a steep road from the village of Tal y Bont, then ½ mile of gravel track to the house.

Access, the property and around: The house is situated in a location which some city dwellers might consider 'remote', however you can access a dual carriagway, Tesco, multi-screen cinema and the town of Conwy easily within 20 minutes. It takes about 8-10 minutes to get down to the village where there is a postoffice shop, pub, restaurant and local farm butcher.

On a still day you can often hear nothing - that is except for the sound of birds. At least one cuckoo will be heard in the summer months. The garden has a plentiful crowd of feathered visitors, including woodpeckers. Buzzards fly overhead and will often be heard calling out. Owls can heard all around at night in the nearby woods.

The Dulyn river, with it's many rock pools and waterfalls, runs within 50 metres of the house, and is a wonderful place to walk, listen to the water and lose yourself.

Smoking, Pets, etc: Please note the house is strictly non-smoking.

Towels and linen are included.

DOGS

We will consider dogs, please discuss with owners. We do accept dogs under conditions. We have found that a stock phrase is used by every dog owner, i.e. 'one small well behaved dog'! Of course everyone's idea of what is a well behaved dog is different and everyone treats theirs differently.

We insist that if a dog is at the house it is strictly not allowed in the bedrooms at all, and also are not allowed on the furniture in the lounge. Apart from that the hall, kitchen and lounge floors are tiled or slated so are fine for dogs. So if your dogs jumps or sleeps on your bed or sofa at home then this property is not for you.

There are two kennels in the garden within a large waterproof covered pen. The garden is also secure for dogs, plus the adjacent 12 acre field with the house is fine for letting them off the lead.

Use of candles inside the property is not permitted for safety reasons.

Mountain guiding: If you enjoy walking, or have that that urge to conquer Snowdon, Wales' highest mountain, but don't quite have the experience to go it alone, we can also offer guided mountain walks.

Walk the famous Carneddau or Glyder ranges with full days out.

Routes tailored to suit all ages and abilities.

With an extensive knowledge and 21 years mountain experience of the Snowdonia National Park we can guide you to any of the summits.

£40 per person, maximum party of 6 persons, minimum £100 per day. Contact owner for details.

Guestbook comments from the owner
“ We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage. The sheer tranquility, remoteness and peace, did the job for us.



When the brochure says isolated, it means isolated! No neighbours to be seen or heard, that was brilliant and so unique these days.



The cottage itself has all the mod cons you could need, yet retains its character and charm.



The views and surroundings are simply stunning and you have ready-made walks right on your doorstep.



We will return.”

Amazing location and property

  • 5 of 5
I had an amazing four night stay here. The property is so remote, a mile up a windy road then half a mile across the valley. I saw two people during my time here and they were water board guys in a land rover looking after a reservoir! It was just me and my jack Russell and the walks and the countryside/ mountains are fantastic. The property is ace, solid stone walls lovely and cosy with the real fire lit. It's ten minutes to the village by car for supplies. Stay here if you like complete tranquility, solitude, remoteness, walking, nature, scenery, wildlife. The owners were friendly and helpful.

Absolute peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5
Neither the photos nor the description do justice to the cottage - they are both far more spacious than they appear.

The cottage is very clean, well equipped, comfortable and cosy. It's hard to beat a roaring fire when there is a gale blowing outside!

Craig was very attentive and keen to ensure that I made the most of my stay. I didn't leave the grounds (intentionally, I really did want seclusion; and got it) so can't comment on the local amenities other than to say that the views are breathtaking. Confirmed with Craig that I could take my two dogs, who also had a marvellous time exploring.

I would thoroughly recommend a visit here.

Idyllic

  • 5 of 5
What can I say that hasn't already been said? This cottage is the ideal getaway, set in an idyllic location that is situated in one of the most picturesque parts of Wales.
Craig and Louise were more than helpful and made us feel welcome. On arrival we were pleasantly surprised and the cottage exceeded our expectations, the pictures do not do it justice. It was lovely to wake up in the morning and enjoy a coffee in the peaceful outdoors & if you are feeling adventurous enough you can even climb up to the seat that is set on a hill and take in the breathtaking scenery with uninterrupted views. The garden and land is worth exploring and there is a lot of it!
I would highly recommend this place to anyone that enjoys the countryside, breathtaking views and peace and quiet. The cottage itself has been restored to a high standard and you can tell that the place is loved. I will definitely be looking at coming back next year to stay.
Thank you Craig and Louise for sharing this place with my family and I.

Stunning, magical walking paradise !

  • 5 of 5
This really is as good as the description sounds ! A beautiful, magical cottage away from it all (with the bonus of free wi fi for the teenagers!!). If you stock up from the supermarket about a 20 min car journey away you really wouldn't need to get in your car again for the whole week.

The cottage is fully equipped with everything you could need, it's comfortable, cosy and clean. The secure garden is a bird watchers paradise and a real adventure in itself. Add to this the absolutely stunning mountain scenery around the cottage in every direction and its just wonderful. A relaxing away from it all treat in this busy gadget filled world ! After a days walking the log burner on a chilly evening or the view point in the garden with a glass of red is just about as good as it gets !

It is suitable for the average walker to the more advanced with walks short or long straight from the doorstep. The added bonus of having a few pubs in nearby villages makes a welcome treat mid walk for a meal and a pint !

If the charm of staying put for the whole week isn't enough there are plenty of nearby castle filled towns full of character and all an easy car journey away.

Craig was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish, great communication, useful advice and extremely reasonable prices for such a beautiful holiday cottage. I would definitely highly recommend this cottage to everyone.

With only the sheep and wildlife as your neighbours this really is a peaceful, tranquil away from it all break.

Claire, Glyn & family.

What a Wonderful place !

  • 5 of 5
What else can we say, but FABULOUS !
House - all you could need. Well equiped kitchen with all utensils, no need to take anything with you (which is definitely a plus as we always take a sharp knife and scissors as there never seem to be any which are any good). Wood burner is a definite plus - sorry if we used all the wood, but just couldn't resist it ! and to keep warm of course !!
Gardens - back to nature, lovely unspoilt and full of birds continuously. The view from the highest point is wonderful - a great place to take a bottle, a couple of glasses and just sit and stare out across the land and ponder.
Walks - plenty from the house itself, some uphill, some flat.
Places to visit - all close by, sea side, castles, mountains
Sheep - they are definitely a novelty for city dwellers, just wish I could have taken one home - as a pet of course !
All in all, would not hesitate in recommending this place to anyone. For people who really like to get away from it all, without any neighbours around, just sheep and birds - fantastic !

Conwy is known as the gateway to Snowdonia, and the Valley and river lead you directly into the heart of the National Park. With it's many pretty villages and natural beauty spots the valley is a hugely popular place, whether you want to visit the honey pot attractions, indulge in extreme sports or simply find complete peace, the Conwy Valley has it all.

Starting with the medieval walled town of Conwy itself, right up to the picturesque Betws Y Coed and beyond you have natural beauty spots every inch of the way, with footpaths taking you into the foothills and higher. On your doorstep there's a nationally popular Marin mountain bike trail starting at the historic town of Llanrwst. Here you can also visit Gwydir Castle, the medieval family home of the Wynn family.

The world famous Bodnant Gardens (Nat.Trust) are a must visit for any garden or plant enthusiast, or even if you just want to sit and relax or enjoy a cuppa. A great adrenalin rush is the Treetop Adventure just outside Betws.

Notes:
Please note that this is a mountain cottage with no neighbours. It's very quiet, surrounded by rough woodland and grazing land, with only very occasional passing farmers and walkers accessing land beyond. The field attached to and above the house is 12 acres and is recently partially planted with 12 species of broadleaved trees. You will have access to this field which is private access only. The views of the Carneddau from the field are amazing, allowing you to see several summits and into Cwm Dulyn; as well as back down towards the Conwy Valley. The access to the property is via a very steep and winding hill, then half a mile of rough track, which is fine for most vehicles (wouldn't recommend arriving in a super low sports car). It does not have mobile phone reception inside or outside the house, however if you walk a short distance down the the track you get a couple of bars. There is a reasonably priced payphone in the house which will also allow incoming calls.
