Here are our top 5 holiday cottages for stargazing…
An elegantly informal home in a stunning location, Uwch-Mynydd sleeps eight with sea views to Bardsey Island and across Cardigan Bay. This beautiful farmhouse is surrounded by rolling green hills and green fields. A fantastic position where you access the hidden coves and beaches of the peninsula and only a short drive to the pretty seaside village of Aberdaron.
This two-bedroom holiday cottage in the mountains above Dolgellau in North Wales. A traditional stone cottage with lots of character features, the cottage provides an idyllic escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
This luxury barn conversion on Snowdon offers spectacular holiday accommodation in a truly unique location. A wonderful example of a traditional stone built barn transformed into a 2 bedroom self catering cottage situated on the western slopes of Snowdon itself. The decor and fixtures on the inside are outdone only by the spectacular landscape on the outside.
Bryn-Yr-Aur is a cute bungalow walking distance from the beach in Llanfair, near Harlech. This three bedroom cottage which can sleep up to six people has that real unpretentious home from home feel to it and provides a great base for families or friends wanting that traditional sea side holiday. A big lawned garden with lots of hidden seating in quiet corners is another real plus in this one.
