About 2089 - Farm Cottage, Caernarfon Bay
STS Grade 4
From the foothills of Snowdonia a country lane leads down to the farm and farmhouse with its little stone cottage attached which is festooned with multicoloured flowers. The cottage is in a split level design and is much larger than the photographs suggest. The comfortable lounge has two large picture windows full of countryside scenery. The owner has recently installed a lovely sunny decking area which is perfect for a 'panad' or a glass of wine, while enjoying the views and the sound of the little river at the bottom of the field. A newly fitted kitchen/breakfast room is in a traditional farmhouse style leads to an enclosed patio to the front of the cottage which catches the dappled evening sunlight. There are countryside walks from the door up into the hills or down into the historical village of Clynnog Fawr (1.5ml) whose 13 century church dominated the coastline marking the route to Bardsey Island. Beaches at Trefor (4ml) or 2ml stretch of sandy beach at Dinas Dinlle (6ml).
