Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Y Bwthyn, a stone built, detached cottage dates back to the early 17th century and was originally used as a barn for storing grain.

Y Bwthyn enjoys a splendid location both within the majestic Snowdonia National Park and only a brief stroll from a stunning, sandy beach that visitors often have to themselves. Guests will love the property's quirky features such as the original ceiling beams and quarry tiled floor. Another feature which will undoubtedly impress is the imposing inglenook fireplace complete with wood-burning stove. Guests can relax in front of a blazing log fire whilst surfing the internet courtesy of the broadband connectivity available throughout the property.

The North Wales region
North Wales is a great combination of the family seaside resorts, which extend along its northern coastline and of course the magnificent mountains that make up Snowdonia Nation Park. Also located in this region are the very distinctive Island of Anglesey and the Lleyn Peninsula. So visitors will find a diverse holiday destination that caters for many different types of holidays from the family beach holiday to serious climbing holidays, and lots in between. There are plenty of things to do here; walking, sailing, fishing and many indoor attractions for the children. Wildlife enthusiasts will not be disappointed, with Anglesey and the Lleyn peninsula in particular being rich in diverse mix of habitats.
The property is only one and half miles from the iconic Welsh town of Harlech. This is a dedicated World Heritage Site and yet another Welsh settlement utterly dominated by a majestic castle. Built by the infamous Edward 1 in the late 13th century the castle has had a turbulent past exemplified by its distinction of being the last Welsh fortification with Royalist sympathies to surrender to the parliamentarians. Harlech is also well known in golfing circles owing to the quality of the Royal St David's course which enjoys an international reputation. To the east and within easy traveling distance lies the awe inspiring Snowdonia National Park, which offers some of the finest landscapes to be found anywhere in the country. The walking and cycling available here simply cannot be bettered. To the south lies the beautiful Cardigan Bay area and to the north Anglesey- the spiritual heartland of Wales and another walkers' paradise. Those with the ‘castle bug' should take the time to visit the amazing medieval fortresses at Caernarfon, Beaumaris and Conwy. The castle at Conwy for example, is universally accepted as one of the finest examples of medieval architecture in Europe. Also well worth the car journey north is a visit to the popular holiday town of Llandudno. The latter has been attracting and entertaining holiday-makers for generations. Its lengthy pier offers a truly bracing walk and the town has a superb range of interesting shops to explore and many other holiday activities on offer.
