Laundry-Cottage is a romantic self catering cottage in Dyffryn Ardudwy and just oozes character. A unique 14th Century stone built cottage with its original inglenook, hand carved oak beams and a spiral stone staircase. You can almost taste the history in this place.

The cottage sits within the grounds of an Elizabethan Manor House, Cors Y Gedol, which was built in 1576 by Richard Vaughan. And, as the name suggest, was used as a laundry for the grand house. But don't worry, you wont be asked to do any of the ironing during your stay.

As you walk in through the front door the kitchen and dinning area is to your left and the sitting area is to your right. The kitchen is simple but well equipped. The sitting area is comfortable and the living flame gas fire set in the impressive inglenook gives the room that sort of natural focus point.

Little things like the material for the hand made curtains and cushions have obviously been carefully selected and add a touch of class to the property. A whitewashed stone corridor leads off to the ground floor twin bedroom and bathroom. Mind your head! Some guests could argue that the bathroom next door is a bit small. But I guess big bathrooms weren't a priority during the 14th Century, and I think it actually ads to the character of the cottage.

The stone spiral staircase then leads up to a large first floor bedroom. The original cruck timber frame painted black is offset by the whitewashed walls. The irregular lines and texture are a real welcome contrast to today's straight edges and wipe down surfaces. Perhaps the cleaners wouldn't agree. Anyway, I could go on about this cottage for ages but I'm worried I'd bore you. 14th Century, stone spiral staircase in the grounds of and Edwardian Manor House. What more do you want?!

The directions to this romantic self catering cottage reads “turn right in the village through the gated entrance. Proceed up the drive for just over a mile..” I should add of course that the 'gated entrance' is the original stone structures erected by Richard Vaughan in 1576. The 1.5 mile drive is as straight as an arrow and leads directly to the Hall at the far end. It's flanked by ancient woods on both sides and the wide grass verges are covered with snowdrops and daffodils in the springtime.

The cottage itself has a large private lawned area which looks out over a field and then some woodland. Beyond that you've got the 7 miles of sandy coastline that stretches from Harlech to the north down to Barmouth in the south. The rugged Rhinog mountains provide a back drop to the property and presents a true wilderness for keen walkers. A couple of pubs in the village both serving food. But probably a bit too far to walk after dark.

A quick internet search will show that there are lots of things to do in the area. Adrenaline educing activities as well as more relaxed pastimes. Sites of special historic interest as well as sites of special scientific interest. The world's your lobster as my gran once said.
