Description from owner

Description

Secluded, romantic and tucked away, Greystones is not your average cottage. This is a real hidden treasure and is an ideal romantic retreat for a couple looking to just get away from it all. Greystones is a delightful cottage located in the lower ground floor of a large Georgian Grade II listed house where the owners live. Beautifully renovated to a very high standard, Greystones is very well designed and offers spacious holiday cottage accommodation but still retains that cosy feel you'd expect from a character cottage which is just oozing with charm.

The lounge is well appointed with a beautiful inglenook fireplace housing a wood burning stove. Beautiful soft furnishings, soft lighting and the attention to detail will blow you away.

The kitchen is spacious, light & bright and well appointed with electric oven and hob, fridge with freezer compartment and washing machine and dryer in the small utility room which is located in the front entrance hallway.

The kitchen is spacious, light & bright and well appointed with electric oven and hob, fridge with freezer compartment and washing machine and dryer in the small utility room which is located in the front entrance hallway.

The bedroom is so welcoming and lovely with standard double bed, bedroom furniture and clean fresh linen, you even get your own bathrobe and pair of slippers!

The shower room is well appointed with Quadrant shower enclosure with power shower.

Overlooking the gardens is a pretty terrace with table & chairs for you to sit out and relax whilst enjoying the peace and tranquillity this perfect little place offers. The gardens are beautifully tendered to by the owners, Angie & Stan who are more than happy to share with their guests. They offer the warmest of Welsh welcomes and are at hand if you have any problems or just want to ask about local attractions etc.

The cottage also benefits from central heating, which is included in the rent. Also included is fresh, clean linen and towels and a starter pack for the wood burner and Wifi. Greystones operates a strict no smoking policy. No dogs allowed and is not suitable for children or infants.

The North Wales region

Nowhere else in Britain will you find such variety, in such a compact area, as you will in Snowdonia - or Eryri as it is known in Welsh. There are many places to visit, and things to do in Snowdonia, so come and enjoy what's on offer.

Maentwrog

The cottage is located in the quiet village of Maentwrog which is centrally located for exploring Snowdonia and everything it has to offer. The Afon Dwyryd River on the periphery of the village of Maentwrog adds to the picturesque environment within the Snowdonia National Park. The village has its own highly regarded traditional inn, the Grapes Hotel, well known for its food and atmosphere and the Oakeley Arms is also nearby. The scenic area around Maentwrog has many public footpaths, the beauty spot of Plas Tan Y Bwlch and the Ffestiniog Steam Railway are also within a few miles.

Nearby Plas Tan y Bwlch, substantially rebuilt during the 19th century by the rich Oakeley family on the site of a first house probably built in the early 17th century, overlooks the village. Plas Tan y Bwlch has its own halt - Plas Halt - on the Ffestiniog Railway, and nearby Tan-y-Bwlch railway station is the railway's principal intermediate station. The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (1868) stated that Tan-y-Bwlch was the postal town of Maentwrog.

Maentwrog means "Twrog's stone" (maen = stone). According to legend, a giant known as Twrog hurled a boulder from the top of a hill down into the settlement, destroying a pagan altar. This stone is said to be the one located in St Twrog's Church courtyard. It is said that if one rubs this boulder one is fated to return to the village in the future.

The name was already in existence at some time before this as it is said in Welsh mythology found in the Mabinogion that Pryderi was killed at the Glaslyn river and in Maentwrog is he buried.The boulder supposedly hurled by the giant is also the one said to mark Pryderi's grave.

The village settlement expanded in the 19th century to house workers from local slate mines. Within the village community is the imposing Plas Tan y Bwlch, home of the Snowdonia National Park Study Centre and former residence of the Oakeley family.

Maentwrog hydro-electric power station was opened in 1928, and still produces electricity today. It is supplied by water from Llyn Trawsfynydd, a large man-made reservoir located near the village of Trawsfynydd.

The British astrologer Russell Grant is currently a notable resident of Maentwrog.
