Cottage | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 7
Four Bedroom North Wales Holiday Cottage with sea views. I should have taken some photos of the guest book in the cottage for you, as the same comments come up time and time again. “Attention to detail”, “immaculate”, “perfect in every way”. And you can see why the minute you step in the door. It’s impossible to criticize this North Wales holiday cottage. Everything from the seaside location and general layout down to the cushions and tasteful ornaments are exactly as they should be.
In the kitchen-diner, oak fitted units house a very well equipped kitchen. This is complemented by oak dining chairs and table, immediately providing a sense of style and quality that prevails throughout the cottage. The room is made bright and airy by the French doors that open out onto the patio and private lawned garden where guests can enjoy uninterrupted sea views of the Cambrian coastline and the Llyn Peninsula beyond.
Next to the kitchen a small utility room includes a washing machine, clothes dryer and extra work surface. There is also a convenient ground floor wc and washbasin adjacent to the back door.
From the dinning area we enter a very spacious lounge. Two large leather sofas face onto an impressive living flame gas fire (complete with remote control) and a wide screen digital TV. Plush cream carpets (so no dogs allowed) and coordinating furnishings finish off the room to perfection.
A wide oak staircase leads off the lounge up to the first floor. 4 bedrooms in total. 3 doubles and a single room. The first double room has a king sized bed as well as an en-suite shower room. This first bedroom also benefits from floor to ceiling windows making the most of that fantastic sea view.
The second bedroom is equally spacious and also has a king sized bed. The third bedroom is a little smaller so has the standard double bed. (Funnily enough, although smaller, this was probably my favorite bedroom. It’s the one with the brown pillow in the attached pictures.) Again, both these bedrooms enjoy sea views. Finally a single bedroom is also generously proportioned and like the others, has tasteful bedside tables and lamps and matching dressing table. All the bedrooms have their own TV.
Finally the family bathroom has a shower over bath arrangement. And, like the rest of the house, everything is immaculately clean and orderly.

The North Wales region
The area’s most obvious draw is the miles of clean sandy beaches nearby. But guests should also take the opportunity to explore the rugged Rhinog mountains also accessible from the house. Snowdon itself is a 40 minute drive to the north.
Other activities within a short car journey include mountain biking at Coed Y Brenin, white water rafting at Tryweryn and pony trekking in Betws Y Coed. Smaller independent activity providers will also take you gorge walking, kite surfing, climbing etc. Two many to mention.
You can’t drive for more than five minutes in this area without passing an ancient burial ground, castle or some sort of historic monument. And our more recent industrial past can be re-lived with trips on narrow gauge steam railways and by exploring underground slate mines.
Or, you could just sit on the patio, read a book, drink a glass of wine and watch the sun go down.
Dyffryn Ardudwy is the perfect location for this North Wales holiday cottage with sea views. A bustling sea side village half way between Harlech and Barmouth on the western edge of Snowdonia. The village has a butchers, post office and small grocery shop as well as a couple of cafés and two pubs serving food. (The pubs are within easy walking distance of the house.) The larger towns of Barmouth and Harlech offer a wider selection of shops and restaurants and are 10 minutes away by car.
