This beautiful semi-detached cottage is located down one of the oldest and the steepest hills in the world as recorded in the Guinness Book of Records, known as Y Llech, close to Harlech Castle in the wonderful village of Harlech, in the stunning Snowdonia National Park, North Wales. With views of the castle and the Snowdonia Mountains, this wonderful cottage is ideal for a couple wanting a romantic break away from it all. Hedd has been lovingly renovated and is appointed to a high standard and is full of character with all the comforts of home. The sitting room, with exposed beams offers a warm welcome, a wonderful inglenook fireplace housing a wood burning stove and soft leather reclining sofas to relax on provides the perfect place to curl up together, and watch a favourite film. The well appointed, fully fitted kitchen with integrated appliances caters for all your needs to be able to rustle up something to eat, the dining area looks out towards the Castle, and when illuminated in the evening provides the perfect setting for a romantic meal for two. The shower room is on the ground floor and boasts underfloor heating, adding a touch of luxury. The bedroom is a lovely open planned space with high pitched ceiling and impressive beams, a comfy double bed ensures a good nights sleep so you wake up refreshed and ready for another busy day out and about. Outside is a rear elevated patio seating area which is a lovely place to return to after a day of exploring, enjoy the tranquillity and wonderful views which stretch towards the Snowdonia mountain range, all under the watchful eye of the castle. Watch the sun go down and sink behind the historic landscape, what a perfect end to the day. Walks are in abundance from this delightful cottage and a visit to the 13th century medieval Castle and visitor centre is a must. The High Street is just a short walk uphill where you will find a good selection of independent shops, tea rooms and restaurants. Magnificent sandy beaches and sand dunes are within easy reach and just less than a mile away is the famous Royal St. David's Golf Club, one of the finest links courses, while the whole of the Snowdonia National Park is just waiting to be explored.
