Mountain Cottage

Llithfaen, Gwynedd

Imagine amazing beaches, a pub you can hike to, a train to get you to Snowdonia… and 3 remote cottages with moss-walled gardens and views


3 places


Sleeping from 4 – 7


There are three cottages here: two adjacent to each other forming part of a traditional Welsh Longhouse, near the main road yet peaceful, and the third 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 gorgeous sofa topped with tartan, a fireplace centre stage and a cosy bedroom on the mezzanine. The kitchen has all the pots and pans you need and a Rayburn to churn out the heat, beds are kingsize, blankets are Welsh, the triple room is downstairs and every window has a view. Outside: mossy walls and stones, brackens, wild flowers, a pond (take a swim) and magical, mesmerising views. On the edge of the Llyn Peninsula you are spoiled for things to do, while a short drive brings you to the adventures of Snowdonia. Civilisation lies in Pwllheli, five miles… but leave the low-slung sports car behind!
