Not many cottages can boast having their very own mountain in the back garden! Set in a breathtaking, remote location (although on the Peninsula nothing is very far away), Mountain Cottage has been thoughtfully restored and beautifully finished.
There is plenty to explore in this unspoilt part of North Wales or simply sit and enjoy the views from this hillside retreat.

About the Cottage
Mountain Cottage enjoys a secluded sheltered mountain setting at some 900ft, overlooking the magnificent landscape of Snowdonia, the peaks of mid-Wales and coastline of Cardigan Bay - it really doesn't get any better than this!
The cottage has been lovingly rebuilt from a humble ruin, ensuring all the windows now make the very best of the views.
Inside, the cottage is incredibly cosy and welcoming, with rustic style and exposed stone walls, huge fireplace, roaring wood burning stove and Rayburn, as well as a generous scattering of stylish Melin Tregwynt blankets and throws.
The large open plan, double storey living area is the hub of the house, with a gorgeous sofa topped with tartan and huge inglenook fireplace that's centre stage beneath a trussed and beamed roof.
There's a TV, DVD player, collection of books and an excellent sound system all to be enjoyed.
The farmhouse table is perfect for candlelight suppers or lazy lunches, with great views across the neighbouring mountains from the well placed windows.
The cottage has a contemporary timber fitted kitchen with a stable door looking south out to sea across to Cardigan Bay.
Cooking here is a pleasure and you will find all the pots and pans you need along with a Rayburn to churn out the heat. There is also an electric oven, ceramic hob, fridge, microwave, dishwasher and mini washing machine.
The cottage is supplied with soft water by a private spring.
The master bedroom has a super king size bed with crisp bedlinen, soft duvet, beautiful Welsh blankets and thick bedspreads included.
The bed is zip and lock, so can be switched into a twin if required, and there is a further single bed in this room.
The second bedroom sits on the cosy, beamed mezzanine above the living room (there's a discreet curtain for privacy), with king size bed complete with the cosiest of duvets, yet more throws and those lovely Melin Tregwynt blankets.
Downstairs is a well heated, comfortable bathroom with bath, basin and loo.
Outside is a beautiful, large private garden with spectacular views out across the mountains. There are mossy stone walls, bracken, wild flowers and a clear water pond to swim in.
The cottage has ample parking for up to 3 cars and although you may feel like you're in the middle of nowhere, there is a pub a short drive away and a Michelin starred restaurant within 10 minutes!
Linen and towels are provided. We only ask if guests could strip their beds before leaving because of additional cleaning procedures due to Covid. Guests need to bring their own beach towels.

What Our Guests Say
"Beautiful setting with amazing view from kitchen across to the sea in the distance. Loved having breakfast outside looking across at the mountains & sea. Possibly the most efficient wood burning stove I’ve ever encountered!"

Things to Do
With more than 100 miles of largely undiscovered coastline and the stunning Snowdonia National Park within easy reach, the Lleyn Peninsula is a fabulous base for an active family holiday.
There are long stretches of sand to be found on the southern beaches, isolated crags and surfers bays on the northern coastline. It’s utter bliss for nature lovers, with seals a fairly regular sight for walkers along the coast path.
When you've tired of the beaches then head off to the hills for a whole new perspective on the countryside. There are "starter" hills on the Peninsula itself, or Snowdonia just a short drive away for summits to shout about...and a whole new way to tire out the children!
