Traditional Country Cottage In an Idyllic Location | Bodlondeb
You’ll find this traditional country cottage in an idyllic location, on a quiet country lane at the foot of Cnicht - aka the Welsh Matterhorn. It sleeps up to eight guests, in three double bedrooms and one twin.
Bodlondeb is a solid, handsome, stone-and-slate Welsh farmhouse close to Harlech, Portmeirion, and Porthmadog. Four bedrooms make it a roomy cottage stay, ideal for a large family or group of friends.
You’ll find it in the most idyllic rural setting. Cradled by Eryri's (Snowdonia) mountain landscapes, the cottage is equidistant - around 2 miles - between the villages of Maentwrog and Llanfrothen. It’s worth noting that both of these villages have decent pubs serving food as well as drinks.
This traditional country cottage in an idyllic location is an eighteenth-century home which retains plenty of original character. We love the beamed ceilings, terracotta floor tiles and wood burners in the kitchen and sitting room. The cottage is welcoming and comfortable.
The large farmhouse kitchen is well equipped with everything you could possibly need to cook up the most hearty of holiday feasts. We love the red clay floor tiles, and the rustic oak beam that sits over the inglenook range. The kitchen comes with an electric oven and hob, a washing machine, and there is plenty of storage space in the cupboards.
You’ll find a breakfast table in the kitchen, with a more formal dining table in a cheerful separate dining room. Beyond the kitchen, you’ll find a nice little conservatory / sun room with wicker chairs. A back door leads from this sunny space into the garden.
Also downstairs you’ll find a decent size sitting room with two very comfortable leather sofas. There is a wood burning stove in here, and lovely views from the windows. It’s the perfect place to put your feet up and relax. A handy downstairs loo completes the ground floor accommodation.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms: three doubles and one twin. Two of the double bedrooms have ensuite shower rooms; the other two bedrooms share a family bathroom with shower over bath.
The cottage has an enclosed, slightly banked garden, which blends into the big landscapes beyond. There is a patio terrace for al fresco drinks and dining, and a further comfortable seating area under an attractive wooden pergola. An idyllic place to enjoy a sundowner or two.
