Church Cottage

This stone Grade II listed semi-detached cottage has a wealth of character features from top to bottom. Tucked away from the main road, this delightful cottage is situated in a small hamlet close to mountain scenery and a picturesque local church, and is only two miles from the village of Dinas Mawddwy. Eleven miles from the old market town of Dolgellau, this cottage is ideally situated to access the wonderful facilities of the Snowdonia National Park and is perfect for couples or a small family. The cottage is thought to date back to circa 1650 when it formed part of an historic wayside inn. The sitting room is dominated by an impressive inglenook fireplace which houses the original period bread oven and a warming woodburning stove, perfect for those chillier evenings or a romantic night in. The hand-built rustic kitchen with solid wood work surfaces also has a Belfast sink and a decorative solid fuel Rayburn. With views of mountainous scenery and forestry to the rear, it is a lovely place to enjoy a relaxing breakfast whilst planning the day ahead. The slate flagstone flooring, beamed ceiling and exposed stonework are all wonderful features and the authentic period appeal continues upstairs as well. As well as all the nooks and crannies downstairs, the bedrooms and bathroom boast rustic period floorboards, timber and original wall wattle partitions and high ceilings, with exposed stonework, roof timbers and beams. Outside, just 20 yards away, is a gated garden area which provides an off road car parking space and there is a crushed slate sitting area. An outbuilding provides a useful utility room and lockable storage for bikes. If you feel like spending an evening out, The Brigands Inn is an excellent pub just a 2 minute walk away. This is the perfect location for climbers, walkers, mountain bikers, fishermen and birdwatchers. As well as being surrounded by the wonderful countryside of the Snowdonia National Park, the magnificent coastline and sandy beaches of the nearby Cardigan Bay are within easy reach. Dolgellau and Machynlleth both offer a good range of shops, pubs and restaurants, while Aberdovey and Barmouth are both very popular seaside resorts. A charming cottage in a truly lovely place, ideal for enjoying this beautiful part of Wales all year round.

Two bedrooms: 1 x double, 1 x single. Bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC. Kitchen with dining area. Sitting room with woodburning stove. External utility.
