As seen in the Guardian's "30 UK Holiday Cottages to book now"
Not for the faint hearted, it is an adventure just getting to Mountain Cottage, but once you are there…..WOW……you are swept away by the views across the peaks of Snowdonia towards Cardigan Bay. This secluded cottage was rebuilt from a ruin and yet retains its chunky, uneven, wrap around stone walls and original shutters. The huge fireplace, roaring wood burning stove, Rayburn and stylish Melin Tregwynt blankets and throws add to the charm. The warm and open plan living area is the hub of the house with a huge squashy sofa. The contemporary timber fitted kitchen with electric oven, ceramic hob, fridge, microwave and dishwasher has all that you could possibly need and you can plan your next day’s activities while gathering around the farmhouse table with even more of those spellbinding views. The comfortable bathroom with cast iron bath is downstairs.
Upstairs are two bedrooms – the master with a zip and link king size bed and the second, with king size bed, is on the mezzanine. Snuggly duvets, thick bedspreads and more of those deliciously soft Welsh blankets add to the comfort. Crisp white bed linen compliments the dark wood.
You feel at one with the elements here – the large private garden provides peace and solitude and the small natural clear water pond is perfect for cooling off during the summer. Although you feel that you have the whole of this glorious region to yourselves, there is a pub and Michelin starred restaurant just 10 minutes away.
This is the gateway from which to enjoy the very best that the Llyn Peninsula has to offer. The mountains of Snowdonia; the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways; Glorious Castles; Walking, Sailing and Fishing. With the beaches at Llanbedrog (with its row of colourful beach huts) and Pwllheli only minutes away and chic Abersoch with its trendy shops, marina and gastro pubs just ½ hour away, you won't have to venture very far…..and then it’s back to the magic of Mountain Cottage and....... those views!
