A very spacious cottage providing Visit Wales 5 STAR accommodation. Open all year and is ideal for family holidays or for a romantic get-away break just for two to chill out and relax.
The cottage is located 4 miles north of the seaside town of Criccieth and is within easy reach of Snowdon, Portmeirion, Ffestiniog Railway, Caernarfon Castle, the exiting Zip World and Bounce Below Attractions.

From the cottage you can join a country path that leads to the Wales Coast Path or join the cycle route that goes from the village of Bryncir to the Royal Town of Caernarfon with its majestic castle.

An ideal place to stay for Christmas and over the New Year. The cottage has a decorated tree, some traditional decorations in the lounge and a roaring open fire which gives the taste of country living - away from the madding crowds.
