Guests regularly return to this prestigious family home located on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park because it is ideal for families seeking peace and quiet in comfortable surroundings, making it one of our most popular cottages we have been renting out over the years. This 200 year old property is tucked away above the village of Penrhyndeudraeth, two miles from Porthmadog, with a narrow gauge steam train passing the drive gates a few times a day. The large, recently added, conservatory offers grand panoramic views across the Afon Dwyryd Valley to the Cambrian Mountains beyond. A walk (or short drive) will take you through the village, passing shops and inns en-route to the interesting estuary foreshore where Portmeirion village (as seen on TV!) is situated. Black Rock Sands is a 3ml stretch of sandy beach and is only four miles away. Beddgelert is arguably Snowdonia's loveliest village, sitting at the foot of Snowdon Mountain at the confluence of two rivers and to get there you will enjoy the most scenic 5ml drive.

Please note: A returnable £100 Good Housekeeping bond will be required before we can give the key safe code. Our experience shows that this procedure results in an all round better holiday for everyone, as our holiday home owners are prepared to offer better quality properties for guests and all guests fully respect the property and so make manageable the process of preparing the property for the next guest's full enjoyment. Nearly all our guests are respectful people where the bond is fully returned. We have a high proportion of returning guests who are appreciative of our service and the high standard of accommodation that we strive to provide. Please be assured that STS is a Visit Wales/Welsh Assembly Government Accredited agency. Thank you in advance.
