Not many cottages can boast having their very own mountain in the back garden!  Set in a breath taking, remote location (although on the Peninsula nothing is very far away), there is heaps to do and explore in this unspoilt part of North Wales.

Surrounded by over 100 miles of coastline, from rocky inlets to wide sandy beaches, the sea is never far away.  There are plenty of hills to explore as well and should you tire of the local ones, then Snowdonia National Park is within 20 minutes drive, with enough to challenge the most intrepid explorer!

Inside, the cottage is incredibly cosy and welcoming, with rustic style and exposed stone walls, huge fireplace, roaring wood burning stove and Rayburn, as well as a generous scattering of stylish Melin Tregwynt blankets and throws.

The farm house table is perfect for candlelight suppers or lazy lunches, with great views across the neighbouring mountains from the well placed windows. Cooking is a pleasure too, with the Rayburn making the best roast potatoes and there being enough kit in the kitchen for a really easy self-catering holiday.

The cottage has been lovingly rebuilt from a humble ruin, ensuring all the windows now make the very best of the views. This is most apparent in the master bedroom, where it's well worth sleeping with the curtains open so you can check out the views as soon as you open your eyes in the morning from the super king-size bed!

Another king-size bedroom, complete with yet more throws and those lovely Melin Tregwynt blankets, overlooks the sitting room and the fire (there's a discreet curtain for privacy).  Naturally, there are the freshest of sheets, the cosiest of duvets, and should you take a peek outside before you turn in for the night, the most incredible night sky.

The garden is really fab...huge, looking out across the mountains, with your own hill right on the doorstep plus a pretty mountain pond, with a lovely display of flowers and shrubs throughout the year.  PS: Although you may feel like you're in the middle of no-where there is a pub a short drive away and a Michelin starred restaurant within 10 minutes!

SANDY BEACH:  Llanbedrog Beach offers a mile long stretch of sand and is one of the calmest beaches in Wales, sheltered by the huge headland of Mynydd Tir-y-Cwmwd.  Owned by the National Trust, you can be sure to find a decent ice cream nearby in summer months!

KID FRIENDLY BEACH:  Abersoch's main beach is worth a mention as it's super sandy and sheltered, so great for learning to water ski, sail or wake board.

SURFERS BEACH:  Porth Neigwl Beach, or Hell's Mouth as it's locally known, has fabulous waves. Pebbly at the top it's worth a visit at low tide for the sand

WALKING & CYCLING: The surrounding area is fantastic for walking, the Lleyn coastal path is a good place to start, or venture into Snowdonia.  Maps can be found in the cottage and there is a rather fine mountain in the back garden to start you off!

BITES TO EAT:  The Ty Coch Inn on the beach in Porthdinllaen is a well worth trying. Tafarn y Fic is a rather fun community owned eatery just a couple of miles away, or splash out and visit Michelin starred Plas Bodegroes for some really fabulous nosh!

CASTLES & CULTURE: The castle towns of Caernarfon and Harlech are close at hand, or try little Pwlhelli, where we found a few good local shops and the rare North Wales sight of a Costa coffee....sad to admit how welcome it was to see!

SLEEPS 2 - 5: Two bedrooms, a super king-size bedroom, with a zip and lock bed, so can be switched into a twin if necessary, this room has an additional single bed. A further mezzanine king-size bedroom. Crisp bedlinen, soft duvet, beautiful Welsh blankets and thick bedspreads included.

RELAXING: Large open plan sitting room and dining room with huge fireplace and wood burning stove. Farm house dining table, TV & DVD. Cottage is really cosy, with the Rayburn heating the kitchen and hot water and top up electric heating. Plus of course the wood burner.

KITCHEN: Farmhouse kitchen, well equipped with oil-fired Rayburn, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine.

OUTSIDE:  Large private garden in remote location, outdoor furniture and fabulous views.

ACCESS:  Mountain Cottage is in an idyllic location, it is accessed along a basic track and low slung sports cars will struggle in severe winter conditions.

SUM UP THE STYLE:  A rustic mountain retreat in an incredible location.

KIDS: Really welcome here, although no cot or highchair are available.

PETS: Sadly no pets
