The
Experience

There’s no mistaking the Welsh hills. And the magnificence of the landscape surely inspired the Victorian artists who named this solid stone cottage their studio. Step straight into a modern, country-cosy, slate-floored kitchen, a great place to cook a romantic meal after a day up Snowdon… then cuddle into the bright two-seater sofa by the wood-burner in the large living room, where rag-washed ochre walls compliment the drape of rich fabrics and modern art. Then it’s an easy hop up open stairs to a mezzanine bedroom above – the result of the entire building being constructed around a vast boulder. Here lies a smartly dressed wrought-iron bed with an elegant throw and cushions, peeling back to reveal super-crisp linen. Just as dazzling the bathroom, small but perfectly formed, with Welsh soaps laid out below a fun mosaic mirror. It’s all about the walking here – up to a picnic bench in a woodland clearing with views along the Lledr Valley, or to the neolithic burial chamber behind. Ian and Gwawr are terrific hosts who run a B&B next door, and know a thing or two about making a stay special.

Reviews

This was our 8th visit in the past 11 years. The Studio so a magnificent and cosy destination surrounded by wonderful scenery. It contains everything you need to be a home from home including a dishwasher and a washing machine. There are also books and games if you want some time to chill out. The hosts in the big house next door are very knowledgeable about walks around Snowdonia and about other activities and restaurants in the area. We find there is much to do and see and always wish we had more time. The wifi is great too if you want to be connected. We strongly recommend The Studio
