Location description from owner

The North Wales region

Ty Uchaf cottage provides an excellent, central and tranquil setting for your holiday in North Wales. Situated on a farm on the western edge of Snowdonia National Park, just 5 miles north of Cricieth and Porthmadog (7.5 miles) and 12 miles south of Caernarfon. It is also equidistant from the beaches on the northern and southern coasts of the Ll?n Peninsula.This 16th century farmhouse was built on a Roman site and is a superb example of a period cottage. The nearest pub and restaurant (Goat) is located just 1 mile away in the village of Bryncir and a curry house is also within 1.5 miles. Other highly recommended restaurants nearby include Y Sgwar in Tremadog (7 miles) and Blas in Caernarfon (12 miles). The nearest grocery shop can be found in Penygroes, just 5 miles away where you can also do some wine tasting at Pant Du Vineyard.From magnificent mountains to beautiful beaches, coastal paths, narrow gauge railways and castles, you will find them all within 20 minutes of Ty Uchaf. The cottage is also located 200 yards from Lôn Eifion Cycle Track which follows the old railway line all the way from Bryncir to Caernarfon. Also on the doorstep is Bryncir Woollen Mill which turns Welsh wool from fleece to flannel before your eyes.For family days out, the list is endless. Dwyfor Rabbit Farm in Llanystumdwy (4.3 miles) has various breeds of rabbits and farm animals such as ponies and lambs. Glasfryn Parc (11 miles) offers go karts, quadbikes, ten-pin bowling and more, making it an ideal all weather venue. Greenwood Forest Park (16 miles) is another great day out in Snowdonia, as is the Electric Mountain in Llanberis. Llechwedd Slate Caverns (19 miles) offers underground rides through the caverns of this working slate mine whilst Anglesey Sea Zoo (Wales' largest marine aquarium) is also well worth a visit.For a more relaxing break, visit Cricieth for a fine example of a Welsh castle, whilst Caernarfon is home to possibly the most famous of Wales's castles. Enjoy the stunning coastline of the Ll?n Peninsula; its beaches, beautiful Welsh seaside villages and possibly a boat trip to Ynys Enlli (Bardsey Island) - one of Wales' Holy Islands. Visit the classic Italian village and gardens of Portmeirion (10 miles) and take a ride on the narrow gauge railway from the sea at Porthmadog into the mountains at Blaenau Ffestiniog.
