About this property

STS Grade 2 A unique experience to stay in a little cottage in the small hamlet of Soar, half a mile from the village of Talsarnau. This cute little cottage is one of two situated above the hamlet with elevated views from its sunny windows. A lovely romantic retreat for couples wanting to chill out in this undiscovered part of the Snowdonia National Park. There are woodland and river walks nearby, the village of Talsarnau is a half mile walk along a country lane to the 'Ship Aground' pub and Cambrian Coast Railway halt. The sandy beaches at Harlech and Shell Island are within a 10 - 15 minute drive and the wet land shores of the Dwyryd river are 2.5mls away for bird watching, which may include our summer visitor the Osprey between March and September.

Visit Wales Comments (January, 2012):"4177 provides a good standard of accommodation for guests with an open plan lounge/diner/kitchen. Welcoming log burner in the inglenook fireplace, other heating provided by loose heaters in the bedrooms. The 3 bedrooms are very compact indeed, and the shower room is also small but adequate. Overall a pleasant property in tranquil environment."Overall Quality Percentage: 59%
