3 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
Llwyngwril, Snowdonia National Park, North Wales, Wales
This cosy beamed cottage with an inglenook fireplace and an open fire is the perfect place to come and explore the wonderful Snowdonia coastline, whether you are coming to relax and enjoy the beach or perhaps walk or cycle in the hills behind the village. A brand new kitchen has been installed in Y Popty in February 2012. The cottage has two double bedrooms and another with full-length 2'6" wide sturdy bunks. If Y Popty is full, we might have availability in one of our other cottages sleeping 2 and 14..
We allow one dog per property. Y Popty has a private garden but also has access to our large field where you can exercise your dog.

Did the Precipice walk nearby (20 min car drive) and it was stunning. Amazing views at each turn. Also checked out the waterfalls and then Portmerion. Will be coming back. Ready-stacked wood fire was...

Thank you very much for your lovely review. Sounds like you went the wrong way to the beach through Borthwen caravan site- that's why you were met by 3 sheep dogs.

Found this holiday cottage by complete chance, definitely a hidden gem. It is a really home from home. Very clean and comfortable with everything you need, even a dishwasher! The owners are welcoming and friendly. Could not fault this cottage at all. Gardens are lovely. The village has a local shop and a pub that does lovely meals.
