This spacious former dairy oozes character with beamed ceilings, cosy wood burner, a myriad of stylishly furnished rooms, interesting artworks around every corner and stunning rural views. The impressive entrance hall has oodles of space to hang your coats and leave your boots. Walking back through the hall you will find the large bathroom with a walk in shower, free-standing bath and WC, as well as a spacious double bedroom with plenty of storage and lots of natural light. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is bright and spacious with French doors opening on to the patio area with wonderful views over  grounds towards the mountain range. Relax on the comfy leather sofas, plan your holiday adventures or maybe light the ready-laid-wood burner and watch TV or a DVD. If you decide to eat in the well-equipped kitchen area, with breakfast bar, you'll find all you need to prepare a meal with the electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, Dolce Gusto coffee machine, dishwasher and washing machine, alongside all the thoughtful little extras creating a lovely space to cook in. Wander through to the library stairwell, settle down with a good book or listen to the radio. Dressing gowns and towels are also provided for the hot tub.

Up the private drive, past the owners home the property nestles on the gravelled courtyard with superb countryside views. Enjoy alfresco dining on the patio area with table, chairs, charcoal BBQ and lovely views over the standing stones and beyond. There are also a number of shared places to sit and relax in the nine acres of grounds, maybe picnic on the lawn or by the standing stones or head to the shade of the trees. If you are bringing your bike there is a lockable store and outside tap with hose available. Plenty of outside space for your canoe or kayak's. The shared, spacious, vaulted ceiling games barn is also accessible from the courtyard and offers a wide range of fun activities to enjoy, including Free View TV with large wall projection, darts, table tennis, slate bed pool table and high quality hi-fi system. Ample private parking on site, within walking distance of the property. Please note that the path from the car parking area is quite steep.

The owners have also wilded seven acres of the grounds to make a small sanctuary for wildlife with the creation of a large natural lake, new copses and wildflower meadows. Guests are welcome to walk around the lake but swimming and fishing are prohibited, but a wander through the wildflower meadow on a summer's evening is a real nature lovers treat.

Lovely cottage in a wonderful, very peaceful setting. We enjoyed the views over the surrounding countryside and loved relaxing in the spacious living area. There are some good cafes nearby but you have to travel a bit further to get to a supermarket; several of the big supermarkets will deliver to the cottage though.

Absolutely stunning property and location. Fantastic home from home. The house was very well equipped and the welcome gifts a lovely touch. The kids (and grown ups!) loved the games room and spent many happy hours in there too. So much to see and do in the area - highly recommended stay.

An excellent, well appointed holiday destination, with perfect location and extremely friendly and welcoming owners. Perfect for a large family holiday occupying the two large cottages, and possibly the third too if needed.

Lovely clean, spacious, well equipped cottage. Totally chilled in the peaceful setting with stunning mountain views out the back patio doors. Gail & Jerry very helpful and friendly both before arrival & during our stay. Now know we're drawn more to the coast, driving across the mountains visiting Aberdovy, Nefyn (stunning scenery, golf & meal) HarlRead moreech, Barmouth. The cottage location made it easier for us to explore Snowdonia National Park & villages on route. The games room is a great addition. Hide
