Eryri – ‘the place of eagles’: a fine Welsh name for soaring Snowdonia National Park. From these two sheltered hideaways you can stride up mountains or drift along deserted sand dunes. Saying that, you may choose never to leave either of these houses. The coolly converted barn is a vision in white and is a deeply romantic retreat with stillness and space, fabulous décor and a huge four-poster. All is open-plan: in the living space, on whitewashed floorboards, rests a lengthy table alongside a small but perfectly formed kitchen; at the far end, sofas and chairs for lounging – and no TV to distract you from sublime mountain and valley views. As darkness closes in, you can retreat to a fine four-poster bedroom, with a cheery rug and warm wood floor… a swish bathroom and dressing room, too. It’s a little slice of heaven and if you can bear to share it, ease out the sofabed. The House, in contrast, is quirky, charming, creaky and much-loved, with old beams, books, slate floors, and a huge log fire. There’s a mossy wood, a stream and a den in the little bakehouse outside. And there’s a pub in the village. Special.
