Unique romantic period cottage with quirky outdoor bath, summer house and large garden, on the edge of Bethesda. Explore the countryside, coast and culture in North Wales and Snowdonia National Park.

This is the perfect location to just relax or go exploring. Bethesda itself boasts a local pub and shop. Pop to the nearby towns of Llanberis, Capel Curig, Betws-y-Coed, Bangor, Caernarfon and Anglesey with their attractions, harbours, shops, galleries, eateries, activities, and events. Stroll through nature reserves such as Cwm Idwal, join the footpaths across Snowdonia National Park and Wales Coastal Path, climb to Snowdon’s peak or wander along the beaches. Visit Zip World or Surf Snowdonia, Caernarfon or Penryhn Castles, the Secret Gardens or National Trust’s Plas Neuadd, go underground at the Slate Cavern or to Electric Mountain, take a boat trip or ride on Snowdon Mountain Railway. Whatever your interest, you’ll find it here.

Walk into the hall with the boot room, also known as the map room, to your right with oodles of space for your coats and shoes. To your left is the beautiful lounge with decadent velvet sofas to snuggle up on, a Smart TV with Netflix, a feature fireplace with a roaring wood burner and a CD player for your favourite tunes. If you decide to eat in, the elegant kitchen is equipped with an electric range oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and a Delonghi coffee machine, alongside all the thoughtful little extras creating a lovely space to cook in. The intimate dining room is a real treat to share your meal together and plan your activities for your holiday. When ready to retire, head up the steep and narrow stairs for a lovely leisurely bath or shower in the splendid bathroom with a bath, shower and WC. Lastly is the magnificent bedroom with a super-king-size bed and a gargantuan window seat laden with cushions to embrace the fabulous views towards the Menai Straits. What an amazing view to wake up to and start your day.

Outside is full of surprises too: the outside bath, with hot and cold running water, nestles under a sail in the paved courtyard with a table and chairs. This is accessed via the kitchen or you can walk around from the front garden, which also has a table and chairs, perfect to enjoy morning coffee. Take 50 paces from the front door round to the secret garden mostly laid to lawn with a summer house, perfect for an artist’s studio, yoga or to just relax with a good book. Embrace the mountain view from the top terrace, enjoy majestic sunsets and when returning to the cottage, help yourself to seasonal herbs and produce from the garden. If you are bringing your bikes, paddleboards or canoes, there is ample storage in the garden store. Private parking is available for two cars at the property.
