One of three 19th century courtyard buildings, set in 9 acres. Located between Corwen and Betws-y-Coed, South Conwy in the heart of North Wales. Perfect for a romantic retreat.
In the heart of North Wales, this 19th-century stone cottage is an ideal rural retreat for couples. Nestled in a secluded position on the eastern outskirts of Snowdonia National Park, the cottage is surrounded by unbridled countryside with picturesque walks in every direction. One of three cottages around a shared courtyard, the property has a shared garden and a games room. The owners have also created a wildlife sanctuary within the 9 acres, including a lake and wildflower meadows – the perfect place for an evening stroll. The historic market town of Bala is 9 miles away and sits at the northern end of Wales’ largest natural lake, Llyn Tegid.
Within its traditional stone exterior, guests will find a surprisingly contemporary interior, where original features sit alongside more modern fixtures/fittings to create a welcoming space for visitors. After discarding boots in the lobby, head into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner where you can cook, relax and dine in style. A wood burner adds warmth in the winter, but in the summer, throw open the French doors and let the countryside sounds fill the room. A spacious double bedroom and contemporary shower room complete the accommodation. Outside, enjoy a quiet drink on the private patio, or take a picnic to one of many seating areas within the shared grounds.
Situated between the towns of Corwen (10.5 miles) and Betws-y-Coed (14.5 miles), outdoor enthusiasts will be in their element. A range of walking trails and routes start in Corwen, including some challenging ones on the North Berwyn Way. Betws-y-Coed is in a gorgeous valley in the heart of Snowdonia, and has many outdoor equipment shops and independent eateries. For walkers looking for a challenge, majestic Mount Snowdon is only 30 miles from the property; and you can even catch the train to the summit.
