Pretty Holiday Cottage Near Llanberis | Mel-Y-Beren
Mel Y Beren is a pretty three bedroom holiday cottage near Llanberis. This three story, white washed stone cottage is set in the middle of the beautiful Snowdonia landscape. Slightly off the beaten track, it has everything needed for a wonderful country escape. Beautiful views, surrounded by lush green mountains, far from the madding crowd, log fires, no neighbours, lots of space and plenty of fresh, fresh air.
Just on the outskirts of Llanberis, you are well positioned to take advantage of many of Snowdonia’s star attractions; climbing Snowdon being one of them. But only a 15 minute drive form the larger towns of Bangor and Caernarfon means that you have easy access to everything you need whilst still being able to enjoy that element of solitude and escapism that being only in the middle of the Snowdonia mountains can offer.
As you come into the cottage through the front door, you enter straight into the sitting room. A nice light and airy room, big comfy sofas and the all essential log fire to complete the country retreat feel. Leading directly from the sitting room is the L-shaped kitchen dinner.
At one end of the L-shape is a seating area with two armchairs and a traditional welsh dresser - this is a great place to sit with a glass of wine in the evening or a coffee in the morning away from the larger group. The kitchen is modern with white, wooden effect units against a grey workshop. In terms of appliances, there is everything you need to make the most of your stay here and cook up a storm for the group. The dining section is at the other end of the L-shape where you will find a large wooden table, 2 benches and 2 chairs so that the whole group can come together to enjoy those meals in the evenings.
Up the stairs to the first floor, there are 3 bedrooms. Two double and one twin. Carpets throughout, it has a very cosy feel upstairs and all the bedrooms benefit from wrought iron beds, light coloured furniture set against lovely bed linen and soft furnishings. Needless to say, there are some pretty amazing views of the mountains to be had from this floor. Just the one bathroom in this property but it’s nice and spacious. It has the added luxury of a free standing bath as well as the usual shower, WC and washbasin - all beautifully finished with modern appliances.
The rear of the garden is accessed by a gentle sloping path with steps on one side and from the rear patio by steeper steps.
