About this property

STS Grade 3+ This is a sweet little cottage in a peaceful wooded valley above the traditional village of Maentwrog. The cottage has been attractively prepared with a warm and welcoming lounge which has a large inglenook fireplace housing a log fire. It is one of two attached cottages situated up a short well maintained drive 500m from the village centre. Attractive valley views can be appreciated from the gardens of the cottage especially in the upper rear garden where there are some garden furniture. Maentwrog village is situated on the edge of the river Dwyryd and has a mythalogical past; it's mentioned in the 'Mabinogion' (a book filled with traditional Welsh stories). You can judge for yourself whether the stories are true but the stone (in Welsh, 'Maen') thrown by the giant 'Twrog' can be seen in the village church grounds.

Great location for road links to the mountains and the costal towns with Porthmadog within a short drive away." Mr & Mrs O: "Very homely cottage and extremely well equipped. Fantastic location and loved the sound of the running water in the background. Great central location for days out around the coast and up into the mountains.
