North Wales is one of the most scenic areas of the United Kingdom and has the countries' largest national park - the Snowdonia National Park (the cottage is in fact located in the park). The region is also replete with history, natural history and archeology; the Castles built by Edward I in the 13th century - a World heritage Site - principal amongst them.
More recent attractions include nineteenth century stately homes and gardens, Zoos, Victorian tourist attractions such as the Great Orme (tram, marine drive..), industrial archeology specifically the slate industry.
More historic attractions include ancient churches and priories from the medeival period, roman remains, bronze and stone age hillforts and cromlechs (and a unique copper mine on the Great Orme).
In the mountains Snowdon is the prime attraction as the highest point outside of Scotland, is and was which is why there is a cog railway up it, another Victorian legacy. Snowdonia is an outdoor mecca that has always attracted walkers, climbers, hillgoers and sightseerers. The famous Everest expedition of 1953 based here to train.
And for the more beach and coast minded, the coastline is also justly renowned, particularly Anglesey and the Llyn peninsula, cliffs replete with seabirds, innumerable bays and beaches many popular and touristy with excellent facilities, others quiet, remote and secluded.
Although the property is so easily accessible from a major road, its character and ambiance is secluded amongst trees, quiet and rural. The location is a natural suntrap in summer, and the area is naturally sheltered from the prevailing westerlies and incoming rain fronts, being more on the lee side of the Snowdonia hills.
The hills come right to the coast in this area, the local villages of Penmaenmawr and Dwygyfylchi tucking in to a small glacial valley. Paths climb up the hill sides and from the splendid viewpoints you can look down on this valley, the villages, the golf course and the general location of the cottage, as well as over to Anglesey and the Great Orme and out over the sea.
The nearest beach is just 15 mins walk away. The nearest beach with facilities is 3miles/5km at Penmaenmawr. The historic town of Conwy wth its Edwardian castle and walls, historic town house, shops pubs and quayside is just 10 minutes by road.
Locally there is a post office and general stores, and a Chinese take-away/chippie. Shops in Penmaenmawr (2mi/3km) include a small supermarket, a good bakery, and a pharmacy. An excellent pub is just 10 mins walk from the cottage.
