This is another rare opportunity to stay in a charming detached stone cottage in secluded woodland surrounded by 5 acres of its own land. Situated in an elevated position 5.5 miles by road from Maentwrog village. The area enjoys magnificent mountain and valley views of Snowdonia. It is very comfortably furnished and a log fire gives it a warm and cosy atmosphere. Ample walks from the doorstep - this is a naturalist or artists' dream location. 40 min walk to Maentwrog and 'The Grapes', 12miles to Porthmadog and Harlech to lovely sandy beaches, golf courses, steam train rides, shops. There are excellent mountain bike trails through the forest at Coed y Brenin. Situated separately in its own grounds and own drive is this 'The Woodland Barn' which is 100 m away from the Woodland Cottage (our ref 5003) and set lower down the hill. Both properties are private from one another. The barn is secluded by trees from the main house and has its own private drive area. It is surrounded by 5 acres of its own natural grounds and with access to the managed working forest of 150 hectares. There are three unfenced ponds about 100m from the barn in the grounds, making it unsuitable for an unsupervised young child. The barn was recently refurbished to a high standard. A lovely retreat for two after a good day walking in Snowdonia.

1 BEDROOM: 1 bedroom with a Kingsize bed. Bed linen provided, but please bring your own towels.
SHOWER ROOM: Shower room with WC and automatic washer.

PETS: Sorry, no pets.

Guest Feedback:
Mr R (July 2019): "Hi, just thought you might like to know, simply to update your literature, but we can get a very decent phone signal here, at least on 3 and Vodafone, both 3g and 4g. Would be useful for future visitors as I would have brought a laptop with me if I thought there would be a chance of a connection in the cottage."
Mr & Mrs C (April 2016): "The barn was cosy, warm and comfortable. We will be back."
D & J (May 2016): "A stunning location and comfortable accommodation. Lots to see and do locally with some great walking just from the cottage itself. Just a word about the fire, you may find it a bit smoky but it helps if you build it toward the back of the grate."
C & D (May 2016): "Needed a place to escape from the everyday demands of a busy life. This place provided that."
J&M  (July 2017): "What a wonderful place- thank you for letting us share it. Hope to come again."
S & H (July 2017): "Nice to be back in the cottage- had lovely weather."
Mr & Mrs M: "Delightful cottage on wonderful secluded location perfect for walking and taking time to slow down, feeling fully recharged and rested as we head home"
Mr & Mrs G: "Lovely cottage in a fabulous location, we had a lovely time!"
Mrs M: "It's well worth it if you like peace and quiet!"
Mr & Mrs C: "What a find! Beautiful romantic hideaway in idyllic location, had a lovely weekend and could recommend to friends. Just the place for a bit of peace...lovely"
