The quaintest of cottages prepared in a very comfortable and homely manner with far reaching seaviews from the doorstep. It is located on the edge of one of the most historic villages in North Wales, Aberdaron. Apart from the 2 steps up into the cottage most of this detached property is on ground floor with only the additional sleeping rooms in an enclosed crog loft up a ships style staircase (steep). Recently refurbished and extended this is the original 'Fishermans Cottage, was reference 3098' which we were proud to advertise a few years ago - but now it is much better. It has two bedrooms and a wet room as well as the cosy lounge and kitchen on the ground floor making it an excellent location for young families or those who don't want to climb stairs. The cottage shares the drive with the local owners who are happy to help in any way or to respect your privacy. There is a totaly private patio to the rear of the cottage with views of the countryside. Less than a mile away is the beach and Aberdaron village which was the stepping stone of Pilgrims on their way to Bardsey island - the island of a 1000 Saints. Bardsey is now a conservation island with bookable boat trips possible on fine days to enjoy this peacfull place. The effect of the gulf stream on the coastline promises warmer seas. Excellent area for relaxing, exporing the craggy coves, surfing in Hell's Mouth (!), bird watching (e.g. coughs are common), cycling the myriad of country lanes and pony trekking on the beach (Abersoch 6 mls). Snowdonia is a scenic 45 minute drive to experience a different world of towering mountians, deep river gorges and peacful lakes. Ideally the cottage is big enough for 4 persons, but can take 6 at an additional charge if they are children.

Mr & Mrs C and 'Bella' (Sep, 2017): "Lovely, cosy, intimate cottage & beautifully kept.

Front Door Access: step into porch, small step over threshold (2 steps).

Kitchen Door Access:
two internal steps into kitchen from the doorway. 1st step 3", 2nd step 6". Width of door 32" max. The owner  would be able to supply a ramp to help assisted wheelchair access. The author thinks that for the ramp to be of a practical gradient it would have to be fitted after opening the door, but we will check this with the owner.

Bathroom is quite spacious with a wet room style shower, but no handles or stool.
