Cosy Cottage Near The Coast Between Porthmadog and Criccieth | Twll
This cosy detached cottage near the coast between Porthmadog and Criccieth is ideally placed for exploring Snowdonia and the Llyn Peninsula. On a quiet country lane, with some seriously lovely walks on the doorstep, it sleeps up to five guests in three bedrooms.
It comes with an interesting backstory, as it was once home to the renowned Welsh poet R S Thomas. His friend Clough William Ellis, the architect of Portmeirion, is thought to have helped Thomas to design the delightful terraced garden.
The cottage is in a fantastic little spot, almost exactly equidistant between two great holiday bases in North Wales: Criccieth, with its medieval castle, galleries and great big beaches, and Porthmadog, with its pretty harbour, interesting shops and heritage steam railways. Both towns have some fabulous places to eat out. They are each just a five minute drive.
This is a single storey cottage, so ideal if you prefer to stay in a place without stairs. The whole cottage has been recently renovated, so everything is smart and new, and the accommodation is bright and welcoming.
The smart kitchen diner is a good size and well equipped with everything you might need to cook up a holiday feast. The dining table seats up to six. There is an electric range cooker with a gas hob, a microwave, dishwasher, and fridge/freezer. There is a separate utility room with a washing machine.
The spacious sitting room has a real fire, and two very comfortable sofas. It’s a great place to hunker down with a good book, or to get cosy with a glass of wine. There is a TV with Freeview. There is also a dining table and chairs to one end of this large room - an alternative to the kitchen diner, or a good place to set up your Scrabble board.
There are three bedrooms at this cosy cottage near the coast between Porthmadog and Criccieth – two doubles and one single. There are two bathrooms – one with a bath, and a second with a walk in shower.
Outside, you’ll find a delightful cottage garden planted with mature shrubs and flowers. It’s a great place to explore, with various nooks and crannies and a lovely little path that winds through it. There is a lawned area too, and a south-facing dining terrace, a great little sun trap and a fabulous place for a spot of summer lunch.
