Gardd Ynys

Barmouth 5 miles. A hidden gem, with plenty to offer in a beautiful setting, Gardd Ynys is a wonderful, detached house set within mature grounds and woodland of around one and a half acres. Overlooking the Mawddach Estuary and the Cader Idris Range, it is a fantastic, rural getaway for friends and family wishing to spend time together whilst exploring this beautiful coastline. The traditional farmhouse kitchen has an AGA and a quarry-tiled floor; a fantastic place for family gatherings and planning the day ahead over a morning cup of coffee, or a leisurely breakfast. The loggia, terrace and balcony are perfect places for alfresco entertaining, or for somewhere to simply relax with a good book and enjoy the peace and tranquillity. The first floor sitting room has a high ceiling and exposed purlins, a warming woodburning stove, a picture window and glazed French windows which lead out onto the balcony, letting in lots of light and framing the wonderful views which extend beyond pastureland towards the Mawddach Estuary. There are two twin bedrooms accessed off a split-level landing, plus two king-size double bedrooms on the first floor, the master of which boasts a feature stone wall, an en-suite shower room and dual aspect windows enjoying a wonderful view of the garden and the estuary in the distance. After a day spent exploring, unwind in the ground floor games room. The room also has a comfy sofa bed, making it great to use as an additional bedroom, and with the added bonus of an adjoining shower room means that there's is no need to go upstairs. The property is approached through a pillared, wrought iron gated entrance and up a driveway, leading to a substantial expanse of parking. There are large, lawned gardens on the approach. At the front of the cottage, there is a broad, paved terrace with steps down to the more formal lawned garden, affording views of the Cader Idris range and the Mawddach Estuary, with a pond filled with bushes and bordering pastureland. There are numerous seating areas from which to admire the beautiful surroundings, including the sheltered loggia and a picnic table on the raised decking. This whole area is a haven for walkers and climbers, while the coastal town of Barmouth is just five miles away, with a beautiful sandy beach and an array of shops, pubs and restaurants. It is also ideal for sailing and watersports enthusiasts, whilst the area provides some brilliant mountain biking opportunities such as Coed-y-Brenin, the largest mountain bike trail centre in Wales, just nine miles away. Further afield, explore the stunning architectural gem of Portmeirion, take a historical trip to Harlech Castle, or enjoy the industrial heritage of the Blaenau Ffestiniog slate works, its steam railway, ZipWorld Titan or Bounce Below, an underground trampoline. This lovely cottage offers a fabulous, rural retreat and its comfortable accommodation provides an ideal getaway for family and friends alike.
