A cosy romantic base from which to explore all the rugged delights of Snowdonia. Return to warmth and peace and quiet

Read guest comments

Nature lovers will be in their element. This is rugged countryside in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, with mighty mountains swooping down to sandy beaches. You can hike, bike, picnic, fly through trees on a zip wire, take a trip on a steam train, even bounce around on enormous trampolines in an underground cave. Stagger back to your warm and comfortably restored 1800s former stables, up a track laden with rhododendrons and azaleas. Walk straight into the kitchen to find slate tiles, wooden units with granite-style tops, a door to the garden and everything spick and span. Choose to eat here or upstairs in the cosy living room by the electric wood-burner. Plenty of squashy leather seating and soft oatmeal carpets will encourage a spot of sprawling but you've probably earned it. Bedrooms are up here too: a sweet L-shaped single with a brass bed and a good-sized double with a door to your own patch of garden; sit up and drink your tea in the summer and let birdsong beguile you. Mattresses are thick, cotton is crisp, duvets are feather and down, the peace is profound. Marie meets and greets and lives nearby.

"Gorgeous cottage! We had such a good time it was so well equipped, cosy and very quaint! It is rural but still only 10 mins from the local town Porthmadog and just a 10 mins walk to The Grapes the local pub. So much to do and see. was impossible in just a weekend. The owners were fab and so helpful. Can't recommend this cottage enough! Don't look just book!"

"We enjoyed a very relaxing 4 night break at the Coach House. The cottage was everything as described and proved to be comfortable, cosy, spotlessly clean and in a beautiful location. Booking arrangements were straightforward, we were made to feel very welcome and our security deposit was returned within a few days. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and we hope to return."
