Property Overview


Idyllic romantic 17th Century Snowdonia cottage

  • Set in a most picturesque romantic location at the edge of a pretty lake, this idyllic 17th Century fairy tale cottage is surrounded by ancient oak woodlands.
  • Beautifully restored, completely in keeping with its original character, the cottage has thick stone walls, a huge inglenook fireplace and stone turned staircase leading to the bedrooms which are separated by the original elm wooden post and panel partitions.
  •  Once upon a time it was a small tavern (now Grade II Listed) and it takes little imagination to visualise the local menfolk sitting in the inglenook with their clay pipes whiling away time whilst swapping fireside stories!
  • The cosy comfortable lounge is stylish and the adjacent kitchen/dining room has freestanding pine units and an early Victorian pine dresser. Pretty ornaments adorn all the small windows of the cottage from where there are views of the meadow and lake beyond. Stargaze on clear nights - there is a telescope upstairs – no light pollution just myriad stars to enchant!
  • Opposite the cottage a small meadow bounds the lake where there is a boat for guests use – a note of caution though - the lake is tranquil but only experienced oarsmen (or women!) should venture out onto the water! Do remember your life jackets!
  • This property is not suitable for children under 10 years (babes in arms only please)  -  due to proximity to lake, unenclosed grounds and driveway across front of cottage to 2 adjacent properties.
  • Within walking distance of the cottage there are 2 locals, the nearest is ‘The Oakeley Arms' and in the centre of Maentwrog village, ‘The Grapes,' a 17th century coaching inn, visited by George Borrow, author of 'Wild Wales' published in 1862.  A short drive away in Llanfrothen is the Brondanw Arms.
  • Lots of activities to enjoy include mountain biking and excellent hill walking in the nearby mountains as well as river, sea and coarse fishing.

  • Recommended by The Daily Post 19th Feb 2016 as a unique and unusual North Wales holidays cottage.
