A traditional Stable Conversion With Views Of Eryri (Snowdonia) From The Hot Tub | Stablgoch

Dog FriendlyHot TubReal FireFarm Stay

A traditional stable conversion with views of Eryri (Snowdonia) from the hot tub, Stablgoch is the ideal property for families looking to explore the north west coast and mountains of Wales. This scenic three bedroom cottage is one of two holiday cottages on the same elevated location, offering dramatic mountain views in all directions.

The entrance to the property passes through a quarry tiled hallway into a large open plan ground floor living area. To the left, a large traditional farmhouse kitchen area is fitted out with beautiful pine units and a bright red tiled splash-back. The kitchen area is fully equipped with oven and hob, fridge, dishwasher, kettle, toaster, microwave oven and plenty of storage space - perfect for guests who wish to cook during their break. A farmhouse style pine dining table with six chairs is located next to the kitchen, in the bright and airy space.

With stunning wooden floorboards throughout the room contains a snug and cosy living area, with two large and comfortable great fabric sofas. A coffee table sits between the seating area and a red painted inglenook fireplace complete with log burner, perfect for cosy evenings in. With exposed timber beams throughout the space, the décor is in neutral colours, but splashes of red within the soft furnishings give the space a bright and warm feel. A shower room also features downstairs, accessed from the hallway, which includes a walk in shower cubicle.

Upstairs in this stable conversion with views of Eryri (Snowdonia) from the hot tub, the layout is slightly unconventional with three bedrooms, one of which leads through from another. This makes this property more suitable for families rather than groups of friends. To the left hand side at the top of the stairs a twin room sits to the front of the property with a set of fully glazed double doors that open up to an old set of outdoor stone steps leading down to the ground floor level. The opposite side of the hallway features another twin bedroom overlooking the garden area with another set of double doors and Juliet balcony. The beds in this room can be connected to make a double if required. A dividing pine wall with built in storage space separates the double bedroom beyond. All bedrooms are located in the eaves of the old farmhouse, with pitched ceilings. The double bedroom has two small low level windows, and an additional dormer window at high level, providing plenty of natural light. Wooden floorboards are fitted throughout on the first floor.

Outside, this stone cottage is the perfect place to relax and unwind after a day exploring. With a garden surrounding three sides of the building, the secluded section to the rear of the property features a large modern hot tub which provides great views across the woodland, a mix of commercial & native woodlands stretching down to the Dwyryd estuary. It's a gorgeous and tranquil setting to sit back and soak up the beautiful Welsh views, maybe with a refreshing glass of wine. Time it right during the day, and you might catch the sounds and smells of the Welsh Highland steam railway, which runs through the bottom of the garden - a special sight that shouldn't be missed, and also now on the UNESCO world heritage list. The garden space also features an outdoor seating area with four chairs and a coffee table, as well as a railway sleeper bench. There's a chiminea available which can be fired up once the temperature starts to drop. The rural location is ideal for spending time in the garden, gazing up at the night sky on a clear night.

This traditional stable conversion with views of Eryri (Snowdonia) from the hot tub sits in an elevated position over the Vale of Ffestiniog, in the Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park, and also a UNESCO world heritage site. By day the views are of mountains and coast. By night, thanks to this region’s Dark Sky Reserve status, you’ll have stars in your eyes too. The nearest village is Penrhyndeudraeth, which has a Spar- a well stocked convenience store, Mor a Mynydd, fish & chip shop, Silver Lake a Chinese takeaway, two cafés- Eating gorilla which is a vegan café and Derfel café, Lemon Tree is the Indian takeaway, also two pubs, the newly renovated "The Griffin"(1.4mile walk) and The Derwen. Penrhyndeudraeth railway station is walkable at just over a mile and a half in distance.

Head slightly further afield in the direction of the coast and you’ll reach the lovely harbour town of Porthmadog, which has a high street full of independent shops. The harbour has a good selection of restaurants and cafes, and if you’re a fan of real ales look out for the Purple Moose brewery too. Porthmadog is also home to what will be your closest large supermarket (there’s a large Tesco on the High Street).

From Porthmadog, a 20-minute walk will get you to the seaside village of Borth-y-Gest, where you’ll find attractive sandy beaches and a couple of traditional style cafes. The wonderfully eccentric Portmeirion Village is a short distance from Porthmadog and another great place to spend the day.

If you didn’t manage the flag down the steam train as it crossed your garden at Stablgoch, you can jump on the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland railways at Porthmadog for a magical ride through Snowdonia. The railways run a regular service throughout the year, with family-friendly and some themed events in school holidays.

Around 15 minutes’ drive in the other direction, towards the mountains, is the supremely pretty Eryri (Snowdonia) mountain village of Beddgelert. This is a great place to potter about, and maybe even take a picnic to enjoy on the riverbank. There are some great family-friendly walks around the village, and ample opportunities for post-ramble refreshments.

If you are into adventure and outdoor sports, you could not be better placed to enjoy a multitude of activities on offer – gorge walking, climbing, walking, kayaking, white water rafting, canyoning, SUP etc are all readily available throughout the area from a number of different activity providers. Or you could just pull on your walking boots and head out of the front door. Big days out don’t have to cost much round here.

Beach lovers should check out the sandy dunes at Harlech, which also has a fantastic medieval castle. In fact, if it’s castles you’re after, you’re literally surrounded by them. Caernarfon and Criccieth are well worth a visit.

A delightful Welsh cottage with panoramic views of the mountains.
Watch the steam train whilst relaxing in the hot tub. A magical place !


Charming host, beautiful surroundings, the house had all we needed. Peaceful location and with the railway at the bottom of the garden we were in heaven. The hot tub was a real luxury after long walks to soothe aching limbs. We will be back!

We had a great time at Stablgogh. The cottage and surroundings were stunning. We enjoyed lots of local days out despite the weather.


This was booked with my two oldest best friends to celebrate my 50th and was everything we could have wished for. The scenery around there, along with all the birds was amazing, and we saw a beautiful sky one night full of stars from the hot tub. Rhys was a fantastic host and the extra touches that were provided for my 50th was so thoughtful and really made it that more special. The hot tub was amazing, and it was great to see the train pass by and wave to people from the garden. We didn’t have long there as it was only a short break but we visited a couple of places nearby in the day and in the evening/night we were in the hot tub. We all had a fab time there and would totally recommend this cottage, not only for the scenery, the hot tub and the cottage itself but also for Rhys who was a fantastic host. This is the first time I have used Dioni and they were amazing too and it won’t be the last time. All in all a very enjoyable experience from the minute this cottage was booked until leaving the cottage on our last day.


A gem of a cottage, cosy cottage, comfortable. Lovely log burner.
Stunning views from the Hot tub, if you get a clear night the stars are amazing.
Plenty of birds, more so if you top up the bird feeders.
Plenty of walking straight from the front door.
We absolutely loved our week despite the wet weather. Definitely will return.


I love these places and Rhys is a brilliant Host .
This is our 3rd stay and its just perfect thats all I can say .PERFECTION ALL IN ONE PLACE ❤
Its good for visiting places but its good to just stay in and explore your surroundings too .


What a fantastic find, so peaceful, a perfect location in the middle of nowhere but still walking distance to a pub. Hot tub was a welcome extra.

Me and my wife come up for a short staycation as we love Wales and everything it offers.

Stablgoch was the perfect little cottage! Ideal location/easy to get in and out. Clean and well presented, it’s a quirky conversion and won’t disappoint.

Would definitely return and use Dioni again.


We’ve been lucky enough to stay in both cottages. Stablgoch doesn’t disappoint. Comfy, cosy and all you need with an extra bonus of a jacuzzi and a Sega mega drive!
Peaceful location. You feel you’re in the middle of nowhere. Close enough to pop off for a pint of milk in the village. Close enough to wave at the steam trains that pass. Chase the trains up and down the line. Outside space for the children to explore and to go for endless walks and adventures. The cottage is warm and inviting. Large bed rooms. Lots of storage. Lovely small garden to sit and enjoy the birds tweeting and to pour a purple moose ale.
Thank you for making our holiday special. We will return x

Great cottage with some amazing views. The owner was very helpful and gave us some great suggestions for nice walks. Would certainly come back.
