Greensleeves Cottage near PorthmadogRef: 1070
This has proved to be one of the most popular cottages we've been renting out over the years. Guests regularly return to this prestigious family home located on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park, because it's ideal for families seeking peace and quiet in comfortable surroundings. This 200 year old property is tucked away above the village of Penrhyndeudreath, 2 miles from Porthmadog, with the Ffestiniog Railway narrow gauge steam train passing the bottom of the garden and drive gates a few times a day. The large conservatory offers grand panoramic views across the Afon Dwyryd valley to the Cambrian Mountains beyond. A walk (or short drive) will take you through the village, passing shops and inns en-route to the interesting estuary foreshore where Portmeirion village (as seen on TV!) is situated. Black Rock Sands is a 3ml stretch of sandy beach and only 4 miles away. Beddgelert is arguably Snowdonia's loveliest village, sitting at the foot of Snowdon mountain at the confluence of two rivers and to get there you will enjoy the most scenic 5 mile drive.
