ECO HOLIDAY COTTAGE IN COED Y BRENIN FOREST NORTH WALES | MAES-YR-EGLWYS

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday cottage in Ganllwyd - Maes-Yr-Eglwys

Maes-Yr-Eglwys - a self catering cottage that sleeps 8 guests in 4 bedrooms

This wonderful Eco holiday cottage sits in a small clearing in the famous Coed Y Brenin Forest in Snowdonia, North Wales. The original brick built cottage has been combined with an oak clad extension to provide holiday accommodation for up to 8 people. State of the art construction combined with a biomass burner and photovoltaic panels has helped owners Chris and Charlotte, create a tasteful and stylish carbon neutral property in this most natural of environments.

We enter the cottage through the new oak extension. A big open plan space that includes a comfortable sitting area, dining area and kitchen. High vaulted ceilings and large windows give the space an immediate sense of light and freshness. The kitchen is fitted with some lovely oak units and worktop as well as a dishwasher, washing machine, fridge freezer and modern cooking range.

Family meals can be enjoyed around an oak dining table that then leads us onto the sitting area. This is where that impressive wood pellet burner is housed. The fire provides a beautiful focus point for the room whilst simultaneously heating the slate flooring beneath your toes and providing plenty of hot water for the entire house. Glass patio doors on the other side of the room open out onto a raised patio area with views out over fields and surrounding forest.

All 4 bedrooms are in the original brick part of the cottage. The main family bathroom is here as well. This bathroom has a large walk in shower, an elegant white bathroom suite and the luxury of a heated slate floor. There is also a separate wc next door if some guests are understandably hogging this bathroom.

The first of three double bedrooms has a beautiful en-suite bathroom with a shower over bath arrangement. The second bedroom doesn't have the luxury of an en-suite but is equally as spacious and enjoys the same wonderful uninterrupted views over the fields. The 3rd immaculately furnished with a modern bed and contemporary fittings. Finally we have a 4th twin bedroom. Again, pristine linen and perfect attention to detail.

A 10-minute drive through the magical Coed Y Brenin forest will lead you to the clearing where the cottage is located. A private drive will take you across a field of grazing sheep and passed a disused barn to the curtilage of the cottage. This includes a parking area, lawned sections and patio as well as the cottage itself.

A lot of our guests will hopefully bring their mountain bikes with them. The famous ‘Beast' trail is easily accessible form the cottage and this, in turn, will lead you to the new visitors centre and cafe where you can access a larger network of mountain biking trails that crisscrosses the forest. Bike hire is also available.

The market town of Dolgellau is about 12-mins away by car and has a nice selection of pubs and restaurants. The seaside town of Barmouth is about 20-mins to the west, the larger town of Porthmadog is about 30-mins to the North. Bala has a number of water sports centres and is 30-mins to the East from the cottage.

Walkers will also delight in this location. The precipice walk nearby is included in many guidebooks. The more formidable challenge of Cader Idris will also be on many peoples checklist.

There are two many attractions nearby to list, but a visit to Harlech Castle is recommended as is the Centre of Alternative Technology near Machynlleth. There are a number of National Trust Properties nearby including the wonderful Cymer Abbey. Children (and possibly adults) might prefer to explore the underground caverns at King Arthur's Labarinth or the slate caverns of Llechwedd.
