Impressive Property At The Foot Of The Rhinog Mountains | Rheithordy
You’ll find this impressive property at the foot of the Rhinog mountains near Dolgellau and Portmeirion. In walking distance of the pub and Llyn Trawsfynydd, it has five beautiful bedrooms and sleeps up to nine guests.
A traditional slate-and-stone house dating from the 19th century, Rheithordy was built as the rectory for the village church. Recently restored, but retaining a wealth of original features, it is elegantly handsome and stylish.
We love the original fireplaces and sash windows, and the gorgeous Minton tiles and Aga in the kitchen. This is a great property for a large group, with plenty of space for extended family and friends - ideal if you’re looking for a place where you can bring grandparents along too. Including a fun games room with a table football and table-tennis in a separate outbuilding.
All the rooms are bright, well proportioned, and have lovely high ceilings. Sheep graze the fields beyond the garden, and there are uninterrupted views across Llyn Trawsfynydd to the mountains beyond. The landscapes in this part of the world are nothing short of sublime - it’s no surprise that Trawsfynydd was used as the location for Camelot in the 1990s film First Knight, starring Sean Connery and Richard Gere.
Shallow steps lead from the gravelled drive to a porticoed front door. From there, you’re into the hallway, which comes with oak floorboards and ample coat and boot storage. There are two sitting rooms downstairs, with plenty of scope for getting cosy with real fires, winged armchairs and deep leather sofas. You’ll find a handy downstairs loo, too.
The larger of the sitting rooms has double patio doors which open out onto a large, raised veranda. This is an idyllic spot any time of day, but especially in the evening. Westerly facing to the mountain ridge beyond, there can’t be many better places in the world to watch the sun slip slowly into the night.
The kitchen diner is a large, bright space with those beautiful Minton tiles, and the toasty Aga which sits in a large inglenook fireplace. There is a large fridge freezer, Belfast sink, and it is well equipped with everything you might need. The large oak dining table easily seats up to ten guests.
Upstairs there are five bedrooms, with one en suite kingsize, two further kingsize, a twin and a single. As you’ll see from the photographs, these are all bright, beautiful, and stylishly presented. The main family bathroom comes with roll top bath and gorgeous mountain views, as well as a large walk in shower.
Outside this impressive property at the foot of the Rhinog mountains you’ll find a large enclosed lawned garden and separate out building with games room. The property is dog-friendly, and just a short walk to all the amenities of the village beyond, including the Cross Foxes pub which offers a hearty menu to eat in or takeaway.
