Bramble Cottage is a conversion of a much older building into a smart, superbly equipped holiday cottage. It’s built on the main road through the picturesque village of Llanegryn, which nestles at the bottom of a valley and is approximately a 10 minute drive from the seaside town of Tywyn and its vast beaches. It should be noted that although the road may be the main one through Llanegryn it’s more like a wide lane and the traffic through is intermittent and will not disturb.
All bed linen and towels are provided (though tenants must bring their own beach towels) and both rooms have ensuite wet rooms. The kitchen is ultra-modern with an induction hob, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine. A static rotary-style washing line folds out from the wall in a little sun-trap area just outside the back door, which opens from the double bedroom at the rear.
The main room of the cottage has a king-size double bed and a lounge/dining area. There is a large TV set, a massive library of DVDs should you want entertainment of an evening and a drawer with stuff for children to occupy themselves. The focal point is a large woodburner should the weather turn cool, which can be fed from the well-stocked and smart wood store just outside.
Also outside there is a bench and a garden table and chairs standing on the patio area, and a very smart lawn with flowerbeds as borders. Across the road from the cottage, sheep-filled fields stretch up the hillside of the valley, while behind the cottage there is a meadow, bisected by the stream which runs through the village (and some gardens) is a grazing area for a small amount of sheep who stroll in and out. It was so quiet at times that it was possible to hear the sheep pulling the grass up to eat it.
Lastly there is a sizeable parking area for a couple of cars, with easy access to the cottage.
We were initially attracted to Bramble Cottage because we could take our two dogs with us and the rental price was very good, but on arrival it was obvious that it was honestly going to exceed all our expectations. We definitely intend to return next year.
