Experience a stay in a little cottage in the small hamlet of Soar, a mile from the village of Talsarnau. This cute little cottage is one of two situated above the hamlet with elevated views from its sunny windows. A lovely romantic retreat for couples wanting to chill out in this undiscovered part of the Snowdonia National Park. There are woodland and river walks nearby, the village of Talsarnau is a mile walk along a country lane to the 'Ship Aground' pub and Cambrian Coast Railway halt. The sandy beaches at Harlech and Shell Island are within a 10 - 15 minute drive and the wet land shores of the Dwyryd river are 2.5 mls away for bird watching, which may include our summer visitor the Osprey between March and September. Good central location for the Snowdonia mountains, Portmeirion village (4 mls) the beaches and steam trains at Porthmadog (5 mls) and the castle, historic village and sandy beach at Harlech (5 mls).
