Groes Newydd Bach
This pretty stone-built, semi-detached cottage is set in an elevated, rural location, and enjoys some wonderful views of the countryside down to the Tremadog Bay estuary, situated just five miles from Harlech and five miles from Porthmadog in the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales. This delightful cottage offers the perfect romantic rural retreat for a couple, and combines traditional with some modern and contemporary twists in styling. Decorated in warming greys and neutral shades, this charming cottage is full of charm and character with exposed beams and wonderful stone fireplace housing a warm and welcoming woodburner in the sitting room, perfect for those chillier evenings, relax and snuggle up after enjoying a romantic candlelit meal. The kitchen is small, but modern and well-equipped and upstairs the bedroom boasts a king-size bed and some wonderful views over the garden, encompassing countryside scenery and wonderful estuary views and well, what can we say, the bathroom is just superb! Spacious and bright with a separate shower and a beautiful freestanding roll top slipper bath on claw feet, perfect for a long soak and a bit of pampering after a day on the mountains, nothing quite like it to soothe those aching muscles! Outside is a large enclosed lawned garden with furniture, a peaceful haven to sit and enjoy the fresh air and wonderful scenery. There are numerous walks from the doorstep, two particular favourites are to the Llyn Tecwyn Isaf, a beautiful lake only 300 yards or so from the cottage. Follow the lane around the lake and walk up to Llyn Tecwyn Uchaf where solitude is in abundance and the peaceful atmosphere is deafening, not to mention the great fishing here! Walking past Llyn Tecwyn Isaf keeping to the left head up to the small Welsh Victorian church and ancient churchyard, the views are stunning and the atmosphere surreal and spiritual, definitely worth a visit. The golden sandy beach at Harlech and the renowned Royal St. David's Golf Club are only a short drive away. Visit the beautiful Italianate village and gardens of Portmeirion and the delightful harbour town of Porthmadog, with its array of shops, tea rooms and eating establishments and also home to the Welsh Highland and Ffestiniog Steam Railways. Blaenau Ffestiniog is also close by with the Llechwedd slate caverns, Zip World Titan, Bounce Below, an underground trampoline, and Zip World Caverns. This cottage provides a great rural base any time of the year for a relaxing and enjoyable break away. Note: This cottage is next door to Ref.11143, together they sleep 6.
