Stable Cottage near HarlechRef: 4058
One of a pair of farm cottages retaining some of their 300 yr old character with beamed ceilings and thick stone walls providing a characterful and comfortable family holiday home near the village of Llanbedr, 3ml from Harlech. The large open plan living room is very homely and functional. The cottage is surrounded by open countryside with the heather carpeted Snowdonia mountains, with the 'Wales Coastal Path' running past the front door. The sea and beautiful sandy beaches of Cardigan Bay are all within striking distance. The nearest beach is at Shell Island just 1 mile away.

Mr & Mrs J: "Delighted with the property, comfortable and a place to feel at home and relax. Courtyard is a real suntrap and general environs and aspect of the property is very good. We were concerned at the closeness of the railway track but in the event that was not a problem and actually added to the interest of the area. Property conveniently located to access places of interest north and south. Having rented many cottages around the UK this one is on the list to visit again."

There is ample car parking on site, close to the accommodation. If your party will be bringing more than two cars (farmhouse) or one car per cottage, or if you require a wide or long parking space, please let us know so that we can advise you where best to park. We will do our utmost to accommodate boats, trailers, bikes etc securely and again it helps if you let us know about these before arrival.
The grounds include a small orchard, shared by all our guests, which has a narrow and sloping entrance.
The car parking spaces and patio area are close to the cottages, with level access. The patio area is usually kept clear of cars, but access right up to the door can be arranged if needed by individuals or for unpacking. We regret that the accommodation is not adapted for wheelchair users, but the Old Stable cottage has 2 downstairs bedrooms and a bathroom/toilets, which may be helpful for guests who have difficulty with flights of stairs. There are two small steps into The Stable cottage (120 and 140mm) and two internal step on the ground floor each around 600mm from the lounge to the bedrooms and bathroom. Due to the limitations of the converted old farm buildings, there are some narrow internal passages and doors, e.g. minimum width of 530mm where a stone protrudes into an internal passage in The Stable. Taller guests will notice that the headroom is restricted in some doorways and under the old beams which have been retained as a feature. The cottages have baths with just a small hand shower attachment for rinsing hair etc. Light switch heights vary from 900mm to 1380mm.
Llanbedr railway station is conveniently close for guests travelling by public transport. It is a "request stop", so please inform the conductor/driver if you wish to stop at this station. If you are waiting to catch the train, make yourself clearly visible to the driver as your train approaches. There are about 7 trains in each direction on weekdays and Saturdays, operated by Arriva Trains Wales, with a timetable displayed on the road outside the station, just across the road from the property. Trains run to Porthmadog, Harlech, Pwllheli, Barmouth, and small stops along the way, and with advance planning, many of our guests enjoy exploring the area by train. Llanbedr village is on the bus route between Porthmadog and Barmouth. This is not as convenient or as much fun as the train, but with about 13 buses in each direction daily on weekdays and Saturdays it can make the logistics a little easier.
Llanbedr village is within walking distance, with shops, post office, pubs, restaurant etc, and the road has no gradients. Please note that there is no pavement for part of the way up to the village, so some care is needed when walking and driving along this road.
Our caretakers, Mr and Mrs Jones, will gladly assist with luggage, bed making etc if required. Grocery deliveries can be arranged in advance of your stay.
Most of the beds are on the firm side, having pine bases, but there are some single divans. Pillows and duvets are man-made fabrics. It you have a particular requirement for soft or hard mattress or require special allergy-free bedding please let us know.
Televisions etc have remote controls which are checked regularly, but should a battery be flat please let us know. Televisions have teletext but we do not currently offer internet access. The nearest pay phone is in the village opposite the Victoria Inn. Mobile phone reception is generally acceptable in the area, but depending on your operator it can be poor inside the buildings.
