This impressive grade two listed property is on the outskirts of Dolwyddelen in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park. The property has been split into two parts. And although it can be rented in its entirety in this instance I'd like to describe the westernmost half called No.2. I bet you can't guess the name of the other half! Thick stonewalls divide the two halves and there are two separate private gardens so no need to worry about the neighbours unless you want to say hello.

The entrance at the rear of the property leads you into the kitchen. Modern fitted units including a dishwasher and washing machine are integrated very nicely with older period features such as the flagged stone floors and cast iron range. There's also a wine cooler which can hold 40 bottles of wine!

The dining room next door is dominated by a beautiful mahogany table. Surrounded by antique upholstered dining chairs and warmed by a real log fire. Perfect for a large family banquet.

The lounge is equally sumptuous. So large in fact that we happily played table tennis with the supplied set at the back of the room whilst grandparents watched the telly in front of a second real fire. Only ducking occasionally as the odd ping-pong ball went astray. Large leather sofas and a big flat screen tv finish off this grand room.

There are three bedrooms upstairs. The first bedroom has a king sized bed with an en-suite shower room and, like the rest of the property, is very generously proportioned. The second double bedroom doesn't have an en-suite, but there's a large family bathroom just down the corridor. It includes a wc, bath and separate shower cubicle.

Finally, the third bedroom has two single beds. Both these singles have additional beds tucked underneath. I would suggest that this room could sleep three very comfortably. Four is possible, but would naturally be a bit more of a squeeze so we suggest a maximum of seven in this property. All the bedrooms are beautifully furnished and well appointed with lovely views over the Snowdonia National Park.

The cottage is in a fantastic central location, within half an hour of leaving your front door you can be sunbathing on the beaches of Harlech, white water rafting on the Tryweryn ore horseriding through the Gwydyr Forest.

Dolwyddelen has one pub, one shop, one restaurant, one church and one school. Not huge I grant you but I think all the basics are covered there and all within walking distance of the cottage. There are lots of walking routes up into the hills also available from your front door. If nothing else, all our guests should walk the short distance up to Dolwyddelen Castle which dominates the skyline in this rural valley.

Dolwyddelen Castle in the Snowdonia National Park was built by Llywelyn ab Iorweth or Llywelyn the Great, during his reign over most of Wales in the early part of the 13th Century. Llywelyn's birth place is closer still. Literally in a clearing at the foot of the garden a tree covered hill signifies the spot where an even older, wooden fort used to stand.

Betws Y Coed, a bustling little town in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park is famous with out door enthusiasts is only 5 minutes drive away, and has a larger selection of shops and restaurants. Bleunau Ffestioniog, 5 minutes in the other direction is better known for it's industrial heritage.

Slates excavated from the surrounding mountains are quoted as having roofed the world. This period in history can be relived by visiting the underground tours at Llechwedd Slate Caverns. The narrow gauge steam locomotive that used to hall slate down to the harbor in Porthmadog now carries tourists along one of the prettiest railway routes in the world. Another exiting new development in the town is the down hill mountain biking centre.

This extreme form of mountain biking complements the more well established cross country mountain biking centre at Coed Y Brennin. And on the way there, you'll pass the newly developed fishing lake at Trawsfynydd in the Snowdonia National Park. This 1200 acre lake contains both brown and rainbow trout, as well as Perch, Rudd and Pike.
