Dog FriendlyNear BeachHot TubReal Fire

Nestled amongst the trees this adorable cottage with stunning views over the Mawddach Estuary provides a haven from everyday life. Dog friendly, with a large private garden, this contemporary cottage is ideal for a small family, or a romantic getaway.

Located in the small village of Arthog, Erw Fair (Mary's Acre) enjoys a peaceful setting at the end of a private lane. The cottage is elevated above its neighbours with a large, mature garden and secluded setting which creates a calming sense of distance from everyday life.

Sleeping four guests in two bedrooms, the cottage is decorated in a contemporary style and has been well thought out with three bathrooms and a boot room, as well as separate living and dining rooms. On the ground floor enter into the cosy kitchen, well equipped with a large butchers block, cooker and hob, microwave, Dualit toaster and full sized fridge-freezer. The kitchen opens into a dual aspect living room with views over the garden. This stylish room has an L shaped sofa and wingback armchair, along with a newly installed log burner, perfect for chilly summer evenings or autumn/winter breaks.

Patio doors open onto decking to the front of the property, with a glass balcony to make the most of the surrounding garden and views. Relax in one of the garden rockers and enjoy the sound of birdsong and views across the Estuary to the Rhinogydd mountains. At the very top of the garden a wood fired hot tub provides a romantic spot to relax and unwind surrounded by nature.

Just along the hallway from the living room the dining room provides a pleasant space to enjoy a leisurely meal, with the windows flung open to the decking and garden beyond. Off the hallway there is also a ground floor shower room with a spacious corner shower and a boot room which provides a useful space for muddy boots and muddy paws, with the advantage of a washing machine and plenty of space for a dog bed.

Upstairs are two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master bedroom is deceptively spacious with a king sized bed, bedside tables and a built-in wardrobe making the most of the space; there is also a small ensuite bathroom cleverly built into the eaves. The second bedroom is a twin room with matching single beds, bedside tables and a chest of drawers providing plenty of storage, and views over the garden. Off the landing a second bathroom, also built into the eaves, provides a private bathroom for guests using the twin room.

This adorable cottage with stunning views over the Mawddach Estuary enjoys a wonderfully tranquil location, providing a little sanctuary from day to day life.

Tucked away in a tranquil location amidst the trees, this adorable cottage with stunning views over the Mawddach Estuary is ideal for a small family, or a romantic getaway.

The village of Arthog makes a great base for exploring the wider area and is ideal for outdoors lovers who can take advantage of its proximity to a number of scenic locations and walking routes. Keen walkers can access the Wales Coast Path which offers enjoyable routes heading both north and south, explore the Mawddach Trail, a 15km route along the disused railway line between Barmouth and Dolgellau, or venture to Cadir Idris for more challenging, hilly routes.

The Cregannan Lakes, situated on the northern slopes of Cadair ldris, are a renowned beauty spot located roughly two miles from Arthog, enjoy a walk around these natural lakes, or head up to Pared y Cefn Hir to enjoy spectacular panoramic views over the mountains and Mawddach Estuary. Also nearby the Arthog Stone Circle and Arthog Waterfalls are worth visiting, or for something a little different, nearby Bwlchgwyn Farm offers pony trekking along the Estuary and Fairbourne beach.

There are several towns within easy driving distance including Dolgellau, less than 15 minutes away. This pretty town has more listed buildings than any other Welsh town and is well worth a visit. Roughly 30 minutes to the south you’ll find Aberdyfi, an attractive little seaside resort with pastel coloured houses, a large sandy beach and quaint harbour. To the north the popular seaside town of Barmouth, with its vast beach, amusements and choice of pubs and cafes, is approximately a 25 minute drive; a little further on the small town of Harlech is famous for its castle and long, sandy beach.

As an alternative to driving the towns of Harlech, Porthmadog, Criccieth and Pwllheli to the north, as well as Aberdyfi and Tywyn to the south, are all easily accessible via the Cambrian Coast train line.
