Overview

About the property

Open the oak patio doors and step out with a glass of something chilled then sit on your own terrace and take in the panorama that stretches from Cader Idris, South Snowdonia's most explored mountain around to Cardigan Bay and the Presili Mountains of Pembrokeshire.

This traditional stone barn was converted in 2015 into a beautiful two bedroom cottage that has everything you need to enjoy the sea and mountains of Snowdonia and the Cambrian Coastline.

There are two bedrooms one with a double bed and ensuite shower/wc as well as a twin room with shower and toilet next door. The Kitchen with its solid oak worktop and built in induction hob will make preparing breakfast and dinner simple tasks. From the leather suite in the lounge area you can take in the great views through the panoramic windows that run from floor to ceiling or in the evening enjoy the TV with its free to view channels and access catch up TV as well as Now TV films.

The whole cottage is tastefully furnished with solid oak furniture and WiFi is provided free of charge.

The patio terrace is equipped with table, chairs, parasol and BBQ. Guests will also have access to the grounds around Gwastad Agnes and will be able to enjoy beautiful walks that start on your doorstep. This may be helpful if you have brought your dog with you. Up to two well behaved pets are welcome as long as they stay in the lounge area and not the bedrooms.

Agnes Fach sits 500 feet above Barmouth in a quiet spot on the mountain side and at the start of a ridge that will take you to the southern tip of the unique Rhinog Mountains and beyond. It is one of Britain's most unspoiled areas.

If your looking for somewhere to eat and drink then Barmouth with its fine Blue Flag beach is only a mile away on foot and 5 minutes in the car.

For those who like cycling, the Mawddach Trail is a beautiful level off road route alongside the finest estuary in Europe and National Cycle Route 8 will take you through some fabulous countryside. The National Mountain bike centre at Coed y Brenin is only 20 minutes away. The Mawddach Estuary and cardigan Bay are great locations for Kayaking or paddle boarding and if Rock Climbing is your bag a quarter of a mile above Agnes Fach you will find the popular Barmouth Slabs.

Twenty minutes North of Barmouth you can visit the World Heritage Site - Harlech Castle. Its a great afternoon out with a beautiful new visitor centre that has one of the finest views of any cafe in Wales. A more colourful piece of architectural history can be found at Portmeirion with its stunning Italianate village. Zip world, Llecwyth Slate Caverns and King Arthur's Labyrinth provide opportunities not just to go over our mountains but also to find out what they are like on the inside. Fun experiences for all ages.

Barmouth is well served by Public Transport and you can travel to and from Barmouth by bus or train from Monday through to Sunday. The T3 Bus Links Barmouth with Wrexham and all points in between whilst the Cambrian Line will take you South to Birmingham International or North to Pwllheli linking up with the historic and quaint Ffestiniog narrow gauge steam Line near Porthmadog. Or you can just relax on your patio, enjoy the BBQ, have a glass of wine and look out over the Cambrian Line as it clings to the cliffs around the coast on its way to Aberdovey......Now that sounds a good plan!.

A beautiful, cosy home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting with unbelievable views across the Cadair Idris range right from the sofa. Lovely property with great amenities, plenty of walking choices from the door and further afield. Warm welcome from a friendly host, despite our late arrival. Would highly recommend.

Compact cottage. Nice views. Few downsides hence 3 stars

  • 3 of 5

The cottage has everything you need. The views are fab, the hill up from Barmouth takes about 30mins walk.

The downsides the beds for us were too firm, and the pillows are feather (I'm allergic but always bring my own just in case). No Hoover (We have dogs) constantly sweeping up!! We made sure we picked up our dogs mess, the owners didn't after theirs, there was loads in the grass area where campers would pitch up. Barmouth itself is lovely. Lots of great walks and historical places to visit. We plan to visit North Wales again, but unfortunately not at this cottage.

Owner's Response: Firstly we would like to thank you for taking the time to put together a review and it is always helpful for anyone choosing a holiday to see your thoughts. I am sorry that the beds did not meet your requirements and I am sure that those who have similar sleep preferences to you will have noted your observations. With regard to the hoover, you did raise this with me on your arrival and I explained that there is no hoover because we do the vacuuming and that is what you are paying for. We could provide a hoover if needed but we feel that is not what our guests expect. The floors are tiled throughout and there is a broom provided with dustpan and brush if needed. I do thank you for picking up your dogs' mess. We also regularly pick up our dog's mess across our land and I am so surprised at your comments that I do wonder if what you have spotted is the mess left by sheep, rabbits and the other wild life with whom we share the mountain. Once again thanks for your time in putting together your thoughts and we hope that you find a place in the area that you will like in the future, but please do come back to the Cambrian coast.
