*** Min Stay 2-nights, Any Day Arrival ***
Nestled in the foothills of the world-famous Snowdonia National Park, this handcrafted cabin has been perfectly set-up for a tranquil countryside escape to North Wales. Dôl y Mynydd, meaning ‘The Mountain Meadow’ in native Welsh, sits in its own private wildflower garden and enjoys simply stunning views over Snowdon and the dramatic rolling landscape.
Sitting peacefully in its surroundings, the beautifully appointed cabin is luxuriously furnished with a small kitchen, super comfy bed and an en-suite bathroom, and contains gorgeous hot tub outside which perfectly soaks up the sun and spectacular views. Sit out with a glass of wine or beer on the wooden terrace with a table and chairs for al fresco dining and simply relax in the gloriously wild setting.
A few miles down the road in the Llangernyw, the Old Stag Inn makes a lovely local with log fires and delicious food. This popular watering hole does one of the best Sunday roasts around and also offers a takeaway option, including delicious homemade wood-fired pizzas.
For a greater variety of eateries visit the beautiful village of Betws y Coed, which has numerous attractions and a distinctly Alpine feel, enhanced by the dense Gwydir Forest and mountain backdrop.
The site is well-positioned to visit a variety of amazing attractions around North Wales including the Forest Coaster and Zip World, Go Below Underground Adventures, Surf Snowdonia, and the fantastic Highland Railway. Walking and hiking in the Snowdonia National Park is a must with some of the most scenic routes in the whole of the UK.
Also, within easy reach are the Carneddau Mountains, plus numerous mountain lakes, offering mountain biking, walking and fishing. Bike hire, fishing and a café are available at Llyn Brenig (which contains a 10-mile round walk) or for less strenuous, but equally impressive routes visit Llyn Crafnant and Llyn Geirionydd.
What’s more, the North Wales Coast can easily be explored by car with the beaches of Llyn Peninsula, Anglesey and Conwy all within an hour’s drive. However, despite the multitude of activities and attractions on offer you may want to put up shop and simply relax and unwind in this relaxing, hillside cabin.
On-site, enjoy miles of glorious countryside with plenty of walks and an abundance of wildlife right on your doorstep. Listen to the chirrups of woodland birds singing in the trees while Red Kites and Buzzards soar overhead, and a charming collection of farm animals amble lazily around the fields. This lovely secluded cabin is just right for a romantic break under the stars.
