Traditional Stone Holiday Cottage In Cwm Nantcol | Glandwr

Pet FriendlyNear BeachNear PubReal Fire

Glandwr is a traditional stone holiday cottage in Cwm Nantcol above the picturesque village of Llanbedr in North Wales. This three-bedroom cottage on the banks of the river Artro is within easy reach of both the mountains and the sea and provides a great base for families wanting to explore this lovely part of Snowdonia.

A spacious kitchen/diner houses a traditional country cottage style kitchen on a quarry tile floor. A traditional Aga type oven provides the heat and hot water and large robust dining table provides plenty of room for family meals. The large picture window in front of the sink will help mum and dad keep an eye on the children playing in the back garden as they tidy everything away after diner.

The lounge next door is equally spacious with two large sofas flanking a warming log burner set within the original inglenook fireplace. Exposed beams and whitewashed stone walls are complemented by more modern lighting and a flat screen TV. The adjoining conservatory is a great space to escape to on warm summer evenings.

There are three bedrooms upstairs. The largest master bedroom has a wonderful king-sized bed centrally located under a vaulted roof. Plenty of storage space is provided and the window has a lovely view of the back garden. The bedroom next door is quite a bit smaller but still has room for a double bed. The third bedroom is a charming single room with a Victorian style bed. The bathroom is also on this first floor. This includes a shower over bath arrangement as well as a WC and washbasin.

Floor Plans




Llanbedr, a 10 minute walk from the cottage, is a very friendly and picturesque village on the Cambrian coast road just south of Harlech. There are a couple of pubs, a cafe and grocery store in the village. Another 10 minute walk from there will bring you down to the famous beaches at Shell Island.

Ten minutes away by car, the towns of Harlech and Barmouth offer a larger choice of restaurants and shops. Lot’s of adventure type activities around, including white water rafting, mountain biking, pony trekking etc. Others might enjoy more cultured attractions. The medieval castles, prehistoric structures, and narrow gauge railways that dot a landscape steeped in history.

Snowdon and her sisters are a 30 minute drive away. But, if you’re a keen walker, Cwm Nantcol and the Rhinog Mountains just behind the cottage remains one of the UK’s true wildernesses. The mountains here are arguably every bit as spectacular, but benefit from being a bit more undiscovered. At the moment at least.

Beautiful location and a lovely cottage. Only small gripes are the erratic parking of the next door neighbour making it impossible to park in our two allocated spaces. Had to park vehicle further up road. Washing machine wasn’t working and could do with more than 1 towel per person. Otherwise a lovely clean well presented cottage in an area we know well and never disappoints.


Had a wonderful week here, very peaceful location in the woods, but only 20 mins walk to the village shop and local pub and hotel. Many local walks (see notice board outside Victora Inn) and enjoyed visiting the waterfalls. We had a lovely cycle ride from Barmouth to Dolgellau, and a great day out in Harlech. Cottage very comfortable and wonderful garden to relax in. Hope to come again.

A delightful cottage with a superb cottage garden. Felt like home – wish it could be!

A wonderfully relaxing week in a well positioned comfortable cottage. Our dogs loved it. The area is superb with lots of lovely pubs and restaurants. We hope to visit again.

Fantastic property in gorgeous setting. Very spacious, clean and comfy cottage in lovely gardens. Excellent walks nearby and from the door through woodlands, and further afield to beach. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking and beds are very comfy. Very peaceful spot and would definitely book again if staying in the area.

We have just spent two wonderful weeks at Glandwr Cottage. We absolutely loved the quirkiness! Once the Rayburn was lit we were very cosy. The surroundings and the garden are beautiful . The kitchen is a real cook’s kitchen with everything you could possible need and you can store all your groceries in the pantry and the roomy fridge. The large bed was extremely comfortable and I loved going to sleep and waking up again to the sound of the river. The sitting room is so spacious and comfortable and how nice to have free logs for the woodburner. The welcome pack was very generous and arriving after a long journey to find the lights on and the table laid was very welcoming. There are wonderful walks straight from the cottage but it is in a great position for exploring the local area. The local beaches are absolutely wonderful and we took many dips in the sea ( quite bracing but so exhilarating). The lanes up to Nant Col and Cwm Bychan must be amongst the most scenic in Britain, there are not so many places which are so wild and unspoilt.
The shop in Llanbedr may be small but has all the essentials and a LOT more!
I could go on and on….. We will definitely return.

Great rural cottage with large wild garden. Perfect for a family of four and a dog or two. Large kitchen with table for 6. Owners take note; Cooker needs replacing. The temp settings have all rubbed off on the dials. Spacious lounge with beams and a cozy wood burner. I’m 6’5” and had no issues with the ceiling height.
Large double bedroom but the second double is far too small.
Big, wild, enclosed garden. Safe for the dogs. Had no problems with the neighbour.
The cattle grid on the lane was loud but overall it was an enjoyable holiday.

A lovely cottage, where we enjoyed breakfasts in the patio, tea in the veranda and cosy evenings in the living room. Nice welcome food package! Very well situated, easy to get to most of the wonderfull places in North Wales. We had great walks around Barmouth and Croesor, climbed Snowdon and enjoyed a day at the beach at Hell’s Mouth.

Lovely cottage with spacious kitchen and living area and fabulous garden! We really appreciated the smart tv! It kept the kids happy as they were able to watch YouTube :-/
We ahad no problems with the neighbours dogs, we didn’t see them once. The only thing I would say and it probably would put me off staying longer, is the washing machine needs replacing asap or removing from the listing as having a washer. It smelt really awful and I was unable to wash our clothes. Other than that we really enjoyed the cottage. Thank you for our welcome treats.
