Arthog, Gwynedd

You’re in Snowdonia National Park: cycle, hike, swim, climb & trampoline to your heart’s content. Come home to comfort, warmth, grand views


4 beds


2 bedrooms


Sleeps 4


Come for the great outdoors and stunning views: mighty Cadair Idris looms behind you, the wide Mawddach estuary sweeps in front. You’re off the main road in one of four Victorian slate mill cottages, now converted into warm and comfortable holiday homes. Cheerful Sarah, who runs a thriving B&B next door, greets you, and can leave you a generous breakfast hamper, or she will cook you breakfast at her house if there is room! Families will be happy here with sociable outdoor spaces, bonfires and barbecues in the summer, but couples will enjoy it too – from your large and light sitting room you have a gorgeous view, a comfy sofa, Welsh blankets and calming colours (seekers of quirk must go elsewhere). Cooks will approve of the kitchen – neat as a pin and with all you need. Upstairs are two bedrooms, both with attractive blankets and dreamy views; the bathroom, with proper bath for aching limbs, is spotless. A small courtyard garden at the front is a grand spot for a sundowner, Sarah is on hand for any advice and you really do have a vast playground around you: woods, walks, cycling, watery stuff, castles, mountains and more.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Sarah Heyworth

  • Direct access to exceptionally scenic Mawddach Trail linking seaside Barmouth and historic Dolgellau. Walk or cycle along the flat waterside Mawddach Trail and over the iconic railway viaduct to Barmouth.
  • It's hard to miss the owls, house-martins and other birds right outside the door, but there's also 2 RSPB reserves within walking distance. In late spring and summer visit two Osprey breeding centres within 45 minutes drive.
  • There's a safe sandy beach within 5 minutes drive which is family and dog friendly. You can even go horse-riding on the beach too for fabulous estuary views.
  • Cadair Idris is a spectucular mountain on the doorstep and far quieter than Mount Snowdon which is an hours drive. Many walks for all abilities close by including the Mawddach Trail as featured on BBC TV's "Railway Walks"
  • Harlech Castle, the beautiful Italianate village of Portmerion, the Centre for Alternative Technology, and 4 steam railways including the famous Ffestiniog Railway are all within 45 minutes drive or less.
  • The attractive traditonal market town of Dolgellau is just 5 miles away, with its host of independent shops, cafes, delis and excellent places to eat out. You'll hear the Welsh language spoken here and will find a very warm welcome.
