About this property

STS Grade 4 This is another rare opportunity to stay in a charming detached stone cottage in secluded woodland surrounded by 5 acres of its own land. Situated in an elevated position 5.5 miles by road from Maentwrog village. The area enjoys magnificent mountain and valley views of Snowdonia. It is very comfortably furnished and a log fire gives it a warm and cosy atmosphere. Ample walks from the doorstep - this is a naturalist or artists' dream location. 40 min walk to Maentwrog and 'The Grapes', 12miles to Porthmadog and Harlech to lovely sandy beaches, golf courses, steam train rides, shops. There are excellent mountain bike trails through the forest at Coed y Brenin. Situated separately in its own grounds and own drive is this 'The Woodland Barn' which is 100 m away from the Woodland Cottage (our ref 5003) and set lower down the hill. Both properties are private from one another. The barn is secluded by trees from the main house and has its own private drive area. It is surrounded by 5 acres of its own natural grounds and with access to the managed working forest of 150 hectares. There are three unfenced ponds about 100m from the barn in the grounds, making it unsuitable for an unsupervised young child. The barn was recently refurbished to a high standard. A lovely retreat for two after a good day walking in Snowdonia. 1 BEDROOM: 1 bedroom with a Kingsize bed. Bed linen provided, but please bring your own towels. SHOWER ROOM: Shower room with WC and automatic washer. KITCHEN AREA: Lovely room including electric oven and gas hob, fridge, dishwasher and microwave. LOUNGE AREA: Open log fire (decorational) and TV with Freeview and DVD.PARKING: Natural grounds with parking. HEATING: Full gas central heating with under floor heating. ELECTRICITY & GAS: Electricity, central heating and gas included. EXTRA: Borehole water supply to the cottage is filtered and UV treated. Access is along a 2.5 ml unsurfaced trackway with some potholes so we recommend that low ground clearence cars take the route slowly.PETS: Sorry, no pets. LINEN: Yes.TOWELS: No.Price Group: 7£50 multi-week discount available on requestMini-break rules at this cottage: A mini-break is a holiday for less than a week and/or may start on a day which isn't the normal changeover day (Saturday).

We will be back."D & J (May 2016): "A stunning location and comfortable accommodation. Lots to see and do locally with some great walking just from the cottage itself. Just a word about the fire, you may find it a bit smoky but it helps if you build it toward the back of the grate."C & D (May 2016): "Needed a place to escape from the everyday demands of a busy life. This place provided that."J&M (July 2017): "What a wonderful place- thank you for letting us share it.
