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 Snowdonia cottage stay, ideal for a large family or group of friends.

You’ll find it in the most idyllic rural setting. Cradled by Snowdonia’s 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.

Location

 

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.

Cradled by Snowdonia’s beautiful mountain landscapes the cottage is equidistant - around 2 miles - between the villages of Maentwrog and Llanfrothen. Both of these villages have decent pubs serving food and drinks. Your closest grocery pitstop is a couple of miles down the road at Penrhyn.

Head slightly further afield in the direction of the coast and you’ll reach the lovely harbour town of Porthmadog, which has a high street full of independent shops. The harbour has a good selection of restaurants and cafes, and if you’re a fan of real ales look out for the Purple Moose brewery too. Porthmadog is also home to what will be your closest large supermarket (there’s a large Tesco on the High Street).

From Porthmadog, a 20-minute walk will get you to the seaside village of Borth-y-Gest, where you’ll find attractive sandy beaches and a couple of traditional style cafes. The wonderfully eccentric Portmeirion is a short distance from Porthmadog and another great place to spend the day.

You can jump on the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland railways at Porthmadog for a magical ride through Snowdonia. The railways run a regular service throughout the year, with family-friendly and some themed events in school holidays. The Tan Y Bwlch steam railway station is just a 15 minute walk from your cottage.

Around 15 minutes’ drive north from this traditional country cottage in an idyllic location you’ll find the supremely pretty Snowdonia mountain village of Beddgelert. This is a great place to potter about, and maybe even take a picnic to enjoy on the riverbank. There are some great family-friendly walks around the village, and ample opportunities for post-ramble refreshments.

The historic town of Harlech lies around ten miles to the south. Harlech is home to a clifftop UNESCO World Heritage Site medieval castle and one of the best links golf courses in the UK at Royal St David’s. Its hills and winding lanes provide plenty of nooks and crannies to explore, and some great places to eat. Beach lovers should check out the sandy dunes at Harlech’s beach, and Morfa Dyffryn.

If you are into adventure and outdoor sports, you could not be better placed to enjoy a multitude of activities on offer – gorge walking, climbing, walking, kayaking, white water rafting, canyoning, SUP etc are all readily available throughout the area from a number of different activity providers.

Or you could just pull on your walking boots and head out of the front door. The cottage is perfectly placed if you fancy taking on Cnicht for breathtaking mountain scenery and one of Snowdonia’s best 360-degree summit panoramas. The best route up is from the nearby village of Croesor.

This traditional country cottage in an idyllic location is around 40 minutes from the foot of Snowdon, Zip World’s Fforest Coaster and Zip World. The Deep Mine Tour at Llechwedd Mine, Blaenau Ffestiniog is a short drive, or make it a real adventure and travel there on your steam train (departure from Porthmadog).

We had a great week at Bodlondeb, despite some very wet and windy weather. We appreciated all the space for hanging and drying boots and clothing, especially the porch area. Everything was clean and comfortable although for 7 adults and an older teenager we had to move furniture around for enough seats at the dining table and evenings in the lounge. The location is excellent for exploring coast and mountain areas and it’s a very peaceful location with walks from the door. We highly recommend the cafe/ shop at Y Garreg – amazing pizzas on a Friday and Saturday night.

A lovely comfortable property in an ideal location to explore both the mountains and the seaside. It has a lovely garden and a nice view at the front. The property was clean, felt comfortable and we felt immediately at home.

Beautiful cottage with everything you could need. Very roomy, comfortable and clean. Picturesque location, only 15 mins drive to Porthmadog and about 45 mins to Snowdonia. I would strongly recommend and would stay again.

We enjoyed our stay very much at the cottage. It is a lovely setting and convenient for so much the area has to offer. We must commend the host for the cleanliness of the cottage. It is the best that we have experienced, so well done! It is well-furnished and very comfortable. Waking up in the morning to the close view of cows outside the bedroom window was wonderful, and especially delightful to our two-year old granddaughter!
Just a note of maintenance: the bath seems to be leaking, possibly from the tiled lip when water from the shower head wets this area.

We would recommend this cottage highly.
Thank you once again.

Kind regards,
John Kennedy

Bodlondeb is a wonderful cottage, well equipped, spacious but cosy and with a lovely garden. We really appreciated the welcome hamper, diolch yn fawr. The setting is superb, in a quiet location but close to mountains and sea. Highly recommend staying here.

We had a lovely holiday staying at Bodlondeb. A delightful cottage, spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated, but homely and comfortable. Great walks from the doorstep and only a short drive to all the local attractions in the area. Would definitely stay here again.
