Brimming with history and thoughtfully styled with couples and families in mind, this quintessential cottage is a peaceful vantage point for exploring Snowdonia’s rugged landscape and spectacular coastline.

Studded amongst a row of stone cottages in the chocolate-box hamlet of Cwrt, this attractive 18th-century property sleeps four across two bedrooms. Pennal is just 0.5 miles away with its traditional hotel that boasts delicious pub fare as well as an impressive restaurant, and the delightful village of Aberdovey is 6 miles away with its beach, shops, eateries and many attractions. Active types will find adventure at every turn with woodland and coastal walks as well as exhilarating water sports such as paddleboarding, sailing and windsurfing. Golf is also possible too with an 18-hole championship golf course at your disposal, but you’ll just as easily while away the hours browsing the galleries, strolling across the beach and relaxing in a charming cafe with tea and cake.

Escape inside and be immediately greeted by a spacious hallway that leads to the lounge. Slate floors, painted beams and a stone fireplace set the scene, warmed throughout by the wood burner positioned within the hearth. Switch on the TV and sink into the sofa to catch up on your favourite shows or take a moment to simply sit and relax with a coffee on the armchair. A doorway leads to the rustic country cottage-style kitchen/diner, a chic space for rustling up hearty meals and enjoying them around the table. There is an under-counter double oven, ceramic hob, fridge with icebox, slimline dishwasher and a microwave, and the adjoining utility room is equipped with a washer/dryer, drying space and outside access. Back through to the hallway and up the stairs to the bedrooms, both of which are decorated in different styles to reflect the varied personality of the property. The king-size bedroom has built-in storage and bedroom furniture to complement the colourful feature wall, and the compact yet cosy twin bedroom is finished with a nautical theme and has bedroom furniture. Completing the property is an elegant bathroom with a shower over the bath and WC.

On balmy summer evenings the garden is a sheer treat for drinks at the bistro table, and on colder nights the summerhouse is the perfect place to perch with your mug of hot cocoa. A babbling stream trickles past, and several parts of the garden are unenclosed, so you’ll be able to have a quick paddle if you wish. Children and pets should be supervised at all times. In terms of parking, there is a free car park nearby, and you’ll also have a secure storage outbuilding and separate storage for bikes or other sports equipment with bike washing facilities.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Mid-West Wales is a land full of green hills and clear seas. With the spine of the Cambrian Mountains to the east and the hidden coves of the Ceredigion coastline carving out marvellous openings all along the western shoreline, it’s a mecca for those who crave outstanding natural surroundings. There are also charming villages and quaint seaside towns dotted here and there, giving you the chance to try a regional delicacy or speak to some friendly locals.

A thriving harbour resort just within the Snowdonia National Park boundaries, Aberdovey, meaning river mouth, also lies inside Wales’ only UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the Dyfi Biosphere. With Cader Idris looming in the distance, Aberdovey enjoys a complementary fusion of dense woodland and a golden beach where the River Dyfi meets Cardigan Bay.

Also near the River Dyfi are Pennal and Cwrt, two villages which lie on the River Sychan, which feeds the River Dyfi. Small in size but with natural grandeur, these villages have walks which provide magnificent vistas and if you’re lucky, you may even spot wild otters holding hands by the river’s edge.

Moving away from the river, you can follow the ‘Happy Valley’ which leads all the way to Tywyn. You’ll pass scenic splendour as the road twists and turns past the ‘Bearded Lake’. Tywyn is a beautiful seaside base for all types of excursions. Stroll the large, sandy beach or visit the Talyllyn Railway, that journeys deep into the hills.

We have a handpicked collection of self-catering properties along southern Snowdonia on the banks of the Dyfi Estuary. Whether it’s Aberdovey, Pennal and Cwrt or Tywyn, we’ve got dog-friendly, large, luxury and coastal accommodation to suit your needs.
