About the property

Lovely cottage for two in Snowdonia - wifi, gas and electricity included

Welcome to Idris Bach cottage. Your North Wales holiday retreat awaits you.

Whether your passion is hiking, climbing, steam trains, relaxing by the seaside in summer, or even just staying cosy inside in winter and enjoying the views, Idris Bach cottage is perfectly situated to enjoy what North Wales offers.

Idris Bach is a charming late-19th century stone-built quarryman’s cottage perched on the hillside in the village of Penrhyndeudraeth (aka “Penrhyn”, slightly less of a mouthful), which lies between Porthmadog and Beddgelert in Snowdonia. It’s just 2 miles from the world-famous art-deco village of Portmeirion.

The cottage enjoys uninterrupted views of the Glaslyn estuary below and the Snowdonia mountains towards Harlech and Cader Idris beyond.

Rental of Idris Bach cottage includes free WiFi broadband, central heating, electricity and all modern conveniences.

  • A good night’s sleep is perhaps the most important part of any holiday.

The bedroom’s TV has a built-in DVD player in case you can’t drag yourself out of bed. If you need help waking up, there’s a clock radio with an mp3 input. When you are lounging in bed in the morning, it might seem a long way down to the kitchen, so there’s a small kettle for you to make a cuppa or two. The large wardrobe with built-in drawers should provide adequate space for your clothes, and there’s extra drawer space in the bedside cabinets. We’ve also provided a hair-dryer in case you leave yours behind. *The pillows and duvet are all hypo-allergenic goose down and feather, but we also have a spare set of microfibre pillows and duvet, so let us know if you are concerned about allergies, and we’ll make the bed up with these instead.

Notes:
Idris (meaning “fiery lord”) was the name of the little dragon in the enchanting 1980s cartoon, “Ivor The Engine”, set in Snowdonia. It is also the name of a stunning mountain near Dolgellau (Cader Idris). We decided to name our cottage (and our dragon) Idris Bach (“Little Idris”) in honour of that little dragon. “The Complete Ivor The Engine” DVD is provided in the cottage for you to discover/reminisce during your stay. Idris Bach is laid out over three floors. It is a roomy, one-bedroom cottage for two people. All the rooms are bright and airy and there is central heating throughout, so it’s lovely and cosy all year round.

Gunstig gelegen compacte vakantiewoning als uitvalsbasis voor activiteiten

  • 3 of 5

Compacte voormalige arbeiderswoning met ruime faciliteiten voor 2 personen w.o. keuken-

, audio- en videoapparatuur. Slaapkamer met comfortabel bed aan voorzijde die direct aan een van uitvalsweggetjes van het dorp ligt (in spitstijden af en toe verkeerslawaai). Volop wandeldocumentatie en gunstige ligging. Op aantal punten is onderhoud nodig met name tuinhuisje en tuinstoelen. Ietwat vochtig/muf bij langdurig regenweer.
