Cute Newly Renovated Cottage on the banks of River Seiont | Glan-Morfa

Near PubReal Fire

With a picturesque and secluded waterside location, Glan-Morfa is a cute newly renovated cottage on the banks of River Seiont within walking distance of Caernarfon. The property combines a classic cottage style alongside some modern touches, providing a cosy Scandinavian feel in the heart of Wales. With two bedrooms, one of which is set up with bunk beds, the property is ideally suited to a couple or small family who are looking to explore this stunning part of North Wales.

Visually stunning, the whitewashed two storey cottage is traditional in style with a perfectly symmetrical design featuring a central doorway, with sash windows to both sides. Entering the characterful property through the front door leads into an open plan living space taking up the complete ground floor. Beautifully renovated by the owners Delyth and Iwan (a skilled carpenter), their design flare and influence can be seen throughout the property. The furniture has been carefully chosen, many reclaimed or refurbished to create a unique environment, although there are hints of colour schemes that run through.

Welsh slate flooring is laid throughout, which is always warm and cosy due to the underfloor heating. The whitewashed plaster walls, along with the exposed wooden beams and wood panelled ceiling, create a classic and traditional feel. To the right of the doorway, the cottage's beautiful kitchen and dining area is well equipped for guests wanting to self-cater during their stay. A large retro sink unit sits against the front wall with garden and river views, leading around to a traditional Welsh dresser along with gas oven and hob. A small countertop and cupboard unit is located next to the oven, along with a large central island counter. Both are finished in a striking blue colour and provide plenty of prep and storage space, as well as a substantial wine storage. A round wooden retro dining table and chairs sit to the edge of the kitchen area against the rear wall, which shows off the exposed stone of the building.

Passing the Scandi style slatted wall that partly disguises the staircase, the opposite side of the living space provides a wonderful and cosy lounge area with rug laid over the tiled floor. A two seater sofa, armchair and side chair (all in very different and unique styles) surround a lovely fireplace with slate mantel and a Clearview log burner, perfect for those cosy nights in. A large bookcase sits to one side of the chimney breast, with a side dresser and lamp to the other, both items of furniture continuing the blue wooden finish from the kitchen.

Heading upstairs in this cute newly renovated cottage on the banks of River Seiont, the first floor features two bedrooms and a stunning large bathroom. Solid Ash floorboards fitted throughout the first floor, with bespoke oak doors. The main bedroom, a beautiful double built into the eaves of the cottage, is big and bright. An ornate white metal framed bed takes centre stage with a traditional grey Welsh Blanket. A mix of furniture styles including white traditional style chest of drawers, dressing table and wardrobe contrast with a dark wood side table and lamp. The second bedroom includes bunk beds, the bottom bunk being a standard single sized bed and a high level bunk built into the roof space which not suitable for a young child as the bed is positioned higher than standard bunk bed. The styling of this bedroom is very modern with solid wooden furniture and clean lines, along with bold colours in the soft furnishings. The cottage bathroom completes the first floor layout. A bright and spacious room including a traditional Victorian style WC and basin that sit alongside a gorgeous freestanding bath with rainforest shower head over.

Situated at the bottom of a private drive, Glan-Morfa is set in beautiful grounds at the edge of the river. The property sits next to the owner's woodworking workshop, but there are no other residences on the site. The landscaped front garden features a number of pathways and flower beds set around a central bird bath feature. An outdoor dining table and small barbeque/firepit, which provides the perfect location next to the river for some al fresco meals, perhaps washed down with a crisp glass of wine while listening to the sounds of the river and birdsong in the surrounding woodland. With direct access to the river from the garden, it's an ideal spot to cool down in the summer with a paddle or even some wild swimming. There is also the opportunity to do a spot of fishing in the river. The garden includes a vegetable patch and a flock of chickens roaming freely. This idyllic setting is a great base for some rest and relaxation after exploring North Wales.

The location of the cute newly renovated cottage on the banks of River Seiont makes this property ideal for exploring the nearby town of Caernarfon. A short fifteen minute walk will take you directly into the heart of the walled medieval town. Roughly following the route of the river, the roads leads directly to the foot of the imposing 13th century Caernarfon Castle at the harbour entrance. Built by King Edward I, the English monarch who invaded Wales, it forms part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site alongside Conwy, Beaumaris and Harlech Castles. The castle is a stunning and dominating fortress that's a pleasure to explore with plenty of historical facts to be found, as well as amazing views of the surrounding landscape. The town of Caernarfon is packed full of beautiful and colourful historical buildings which now house some fabulous pubs, cafes and independent shops. Allow plenty of time to explore the streets and alleyways, as well as following the riverside footpaths to get some great views across to Ynys Môn (Anglesey). Consider taking a ride on the Welsh Highland Railway which has a station in Caernarfon. The steam trains provide a fabulous journey experience through Snowdonia, taking in some magical scenery along the way.

The location of the property also makes it ideal for guests wanting to experience some adrenalin adventures while in the area. Zip World Penrhyn Quarry is located less than a thirty minute drive from the property, featuring Velocity 2, the world’s fastest zip line which reaches speeds of over 100 miles per hour. Heading over to Anglesey across the Menai Strait, the town of Menai Bridge is home to another thrilling attraction, the Rib Ride. Guests can take a range of high speed adventure boat rides, taking in the sights around Anglesey, including the world famous Swellies - a notorious section of the Menai Strait known for its shipwrecks and whirlpools. On the doorstep of the cottage is access to the National Cycle Route No. 8, take this path into town and beyond. Bikes can be hired in Caernarfon.

The mountains of Snowdonia are only a short drive away for hikers and walkers. Passing through Bethesda and onwards through the Ogwen Valley, there are some fabulous walks suitable for families. A highlight of the area are the footpaths around Llyn Idwal, one of the most beautiful spots in the area. Heading south west leads to some fabulous coastal spots including Dinas Dinlle Beach, offering fabulous views towards the Llyn Peninsula. The island of Anglesey is also packed full of stunning beaches and coves. Whether it's mountains, the sea, relaxation of adrenalin, this area of North Wales has something to suit everyone.
