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.
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.

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.

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.”
