Beautiful Secluded Cottage at the Foot of Yr Wyddfa | Clogwyn-Mawr
A beautiful secluded cottage at the foot of Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon), Clogwyn-Mawr is ideally placed for walkers and lovers of dramatic landscapes. Sleeps up to four guests in one double bedroom and one twin. Gorgeous mountain views.
You’ll find this wonderful rural hideaway just outside the village of Rhyd Ddu at the foot of Cymru’s highest peak (Yr Wyddfa is the Welsh name for Snowdon). If you’re familiar with Snowdonia, you might know that the village has given its name to one of the nicest routes up Snowdon, which is relatively less well trodden than the Miner’s or Pyg track, so a great option if you’d prefer to avoid the tourist crowds.
The cottage is a gorgeous barn conversion, packed full of character, but with some great contemporary creds and style. It has been recently renovated to a very high standard, using locally sourced materials and craft. We love the restful natural materials used, including local timber and stone. Carbon-neutral, it is powered by hydroelectricity from the neighbouring farm.
The open plan living area is quite stunning with a handmade oak vaulted ceiling. Expect super-comfy leather sofas and fantastic views from the patio door. Underfloor heating and a nice little wood effect heater keep things cosy and warm.
The living area is separated from the generous sized kitchen by a few steps – it’s a kind of mezzanine layout. It is all immaculately and very stylishly presented. In the kitchen, smart new appliances include an electric oven and hob, microwave and coffee maker. There is a dining table for four.
A few more steps lead up to two bedrooms – one double and one twin – which are separated by a good-sized family bathroom. You’ll find more gorgeous fabrics and furnishings up here – the porcelain tiles in the bathroom are a thing of real beauty.
This beautiful secluded cottage at the foot of Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) has the most wonderful views from every window, and sleeps up to four guests. Outside there is a fantastic dining terrace, which comes with a stunning mountain backdrop. The Welsh Highland steam train chuffs past at regular intervals, and there is private access to Yr Wyddfa from the back door.
