The Experience

It’s an adventure just getting here down a farm track on the edge of the mountain. The moment you arrive at Mountain Cottage you’re swept up in the view: sit on the front door stoop and dream. The house is a traditional mountain dwelling, transformed from a ruin but utterly unspoiled, its uneven stone walls and internal window shutters unusually, delightfully intact. 

The living area, warm, woody and open plan, is the hub of the house, with a fireplace centre stage and a big comfy sofa. The kitchen has all the pots and pans you need, superb views for the cook and a Rayburn to churn out the heat. Bedrooms are lovely and each window has a view.

Outside: mossy walls, bracken and wildflowers in spring, a small natural swimming pond for cooling off in summer and utter peace and quiet. Stock up in Pwllheli – just a short drive, stride the coast path round the peninsula, tackle the Snowdonia National Park on foot or by bike.

The neighbourhood

You're utterly remote here with wonderful walks in each direction. You're on the edge of the Lleyn peninsula for marvellous coastal walks with more views or, just a bit inland, woodland and hills. There are good surfing beaches on the northern coastline and safe sandy ones on the southern edge. Explore castles, take the train to Snowdon, or hire bikes.

Local points of interest from Mark Ellis

  • Amazing beaches around the Lleyn Peninsula including Llanbedrog with its mile-long stretch of sand, and the sandy, sheltered beach at Abersoch which is perfect for families. Water sports galore - surfing, sailing or wake-boarding!
  • Excellent walking and birdwatching - wander up to the nearby Celtic fortifications!
  • Snowdonia National Park is a short drive away and offers incredible scenery and wild walks;
  • Local towns of Pwllheli, with its large marina and backdrop of Snowdonia, and Porthmadog for shops, brewery, cafes, are close-by.
  • There are plenty of climbing and cycling opportunities - contact us for bike hire.
  • The castles of Criccieth, Caernarfon and Harlech - gloriously located and worth a visit.
