The Experience

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 (you’ll be charged for logs) 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 (linen is extra but you could bring your own instead), 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!

The neighbourhood

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.
