Description from owner
Relax with a glass of wine in the sun lounge and watch the sun go down over Cardigan Bay; watch the sheep grazing in the fields and perhaps buzzards and red kites soaring overhead.
This cottage has access to our own large field overlooking Cardigan Bay. There's plenty of space to fly a kite or kick a ball. Y Llaethdy is a short walk away from the pebbly beach of Llwyngwril but just a few miles away from the beautiful sandy beaches of Fairbourne, Tywyn and Barmouth. If you enjoy walking there are numerous wonderful walks from our doorstep.
We can provide freshly harvested vegetables grown on our land at reasonable prices.
The North Wales region
Snowdonia is the adventure capital of the UK. Nowhere else within the British Isles will you find such a high concentration of opportunities for modern outdoor activities, set against a truly breathtaking backdrop of mountains, lakes, rivers, woodlands, towering sea cliffs and sandy beaches.
Although Snowdonia is best known for its exceptional rock climbing, scrambling and hill walking, the superb network of mountain bike trails in the Coed y Brenin and Gwydyr Forests are equally popular with visitors. Opportunities for watersports can also be found in abundance; either canoeing or kayaking on the inland rivers, or surfing, sailing and sea kayaking off the coast.
Llwyngwril is a lovely village close to the sea and is the perfect place to come and take in the wonderful clean air and dramatic coutryside of Wales. There are amazing walks and plenty of of other outdoor pursuits such as rock climbing and mountain biking, but if this seems a bit much there are also quiet beaches. You can walk for hours in the hills behind the village with only the sheep and birds for company.

“Cosy and well appointed”
We used Y Llaethdy as a base whilst walking the Meirionnydd stretch of the Wales Coastal Path between Porthmadog and Machynlleth. It was perfectly positioned with the railway station just five minutes walk away which meant we we able to cover the whole distance with minimal use of the car. The cottage was warm and cosy and we loved watching the view, the squirrel and the sunsets from the conservatory. We really appreciated the thick, fluffy towels and the fact that everything from toilet rolls to washing up liquid and tablets for the washing machine were supplied. I always make a point of taking a box of these sort of things when renting a cottage and this was the first time I have not needed any of it!
Thank you very much for your complimentary review. It's good to know that our cottages can be used as a base for walking the Wales Coastal path. We're glad you appreciated all the extra touches. We do hope we'll be able to welcome you back to Y Llaethdy next time you walk the coastal path!
“An absolutely dream location”
An absolutely dream location - wide conservatory windows looking right out over the Irish Sea. So whatever the weather you can sit inside looking over the ocean. And there's lots to do in the locality, good food to be had. Very comfortable cottage and the hosts obliging and easy going. We had a marvellous week - sun in early October.
It was a pleasure to welcome you both to Y Llaethdy for a week. You certainly were lucky with the weather. It's lovely to see people using public transport to explore the area.
“If you want to relax then this is the place for you.”
We stayed in Llaethdy cottage which is cozy and quirky and is well equipped with all you need. It's a bonus that bedding, towels and even loo rolls are provide along with a good heating system to make it snug in the evening. The views are spectacular and as we had particularly good weather we could see across millpond flat seas to Bardsey Island. There are plenty of good local walks and the railway station is very handy if you wish to go further without the car. The local pub and shop are a short stroll away but as the cottage is well equipped you could easily just stay in look at the views. Our hosts Mike and Wilma were there to welcome us when we arrived and take us through everything we needed to know but then they made themselves scarce and you were left alone to do your own thing ( like sleep the afternoon away the the sunshine on a garden bench ) If you are looking for a chill out place then this is it.
Thank you very much for your very complimentary review. We try our best to make people feel welcome so are happy that you appreciated that. Come back again soon!
“Perfect Setting and location for us and our Dogs”
We stayed for the first time in this beautiful part of Wales. The cottage was well equipped and the layout well thought out. Large white thick fluffy towels and very clean and homely. We had our 2 dogs with us who settled in immediately and loved the garden and fields to run in. Wilma was so easy to deal with and all the booking arrangements were done easily via email. The only thing I would say was that the bathroom could do with a little 'face lift' but that is being picky! We will certainly return without hesitation. The location is in an unspolit part of Wales which is perfect for walking, beaches and generally enrgising and refreshing the soul. We were very lucky with the weather, cold but sunny every day and the cottage and conservatory was perfectly placed for the most amazing sunsets with a view of Snowdon in the distance. Loved it.
Thank you very much for your lovely review. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and that you intend to return. We're aware of the need to update the bathroom which is in our plans but the bathroom is always clean and hot water is plentiful. we look forward to welcoming you back to one of our cottages sometime in the future.
The property in itself is quite small but sufficient for what we wanted. The conservatory definitely gave it more space. There are two bedrooms, the double bedroom with TV is upstairs and a single bedrooms downstairs by the kitchen. We didn't feel comfortable to have our 2 year old sleep downstairs so we had her with us upstairs. I don't think this property is for young children who can crawl as there was no baby gate or high chair. If there were any we didn't know about it. We didn't ask for these either. A small cot was provided. We provided our own bed linen for our daughter. Also there is quite a steep unfenced haha at the bottom of the garden so again, if you have young children these cannot be left unsupervised. The property also offered some essential basics which was great, such as tea towels, sponge and washing up liquid (but I am not sure if these were left behind), but we thought it was a nice touch. Having said this, we had a great time for a short weekend break, our daughter enjoyed herself kicking a ball, going for cycle rides. The area is lovely, there are some great sandy beaches and a very nice long flat cycle ride which was recommended by the owners. The village's pub offered nice food and great service. We had a super time and we would love to go back to the area.
Thank you very much for your review. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay in Y Llaethdy. We'd like to point out that we make guests aware of the haha and haven't lost any guests yet! It does mean that guests can have an uninterrupted view over the fields to the sea. There is a stair gate in the cottage at the top of the stairs in the bedroom/lounge. We ask guests if they have any requirements such as cots and/or high chairs but only a cot was requested. The description of the cottage on our website clearly states that the single bedroom is downstairs but there is plenty of room for a cot in the upstairs bedroom/lounge. It is a very quirky little cottage and is very popular with couples.
“Beautiful, unspoilt, and spotless!”
This was recommended by a friend and it really is a little gem! Wonderful place with lots to do and see and this little cottage is the perfect place to come "home" to. Spotlessly clean and homely, genuinely dog friendly , querky and quaint is the little cottage, we spent our evenings in the conservatory with a nice home cooked meal, bottle of wine and watched the sun go down over the sea. Wonderful hideaway from stresses of everyday life!
What a lovely review! Thank you very much and come back again soon!
“lovely cosy little cottage with a sunny conservatory”
We rented all the properties together for a family wedding and our friends stayed in this cottage. It was very comfortable and well equipped. The double room and the conservatory have wonderful views over the garden and sea. An adult stayed in the single bedroom downstairs and said he had enough room but it would be better for a child if you were staying for a long time. They loved having supper looking at the beautiful sunset in the conservatory
We're glad you enjoyed making use of the conservatory and its amazing views. Thank you for your comments. The single bedroom is indeed compact although the bed is a full sized single bed.
“Really nice cottage Y Llaethdy”
Me, my husband and our dog Oskar would like to highly recommended Y Llaethdy cottage. Wilma and Mike welcome us really nicely and friendly. Y Llaethdy cottage was clean, cosy and well equiped. Mike and Wilma give us some direction where to go and what was worth to see. In a cottage was some leaflets with information about local area. Sea view form conservatory was amazing. In the evening you can enjoy beautifull sunset. We definitely going to come back soon. Very Thank You for Wilma and Mike.
Thank you very much for your lovely comments. It was a pleasure to welcome you both (and Oskar) to Y Llaethdy. We're so glad you found some dog friendly places to go around Llwyngwril and we look forward to welcoming you back again sometime in the future.
