Quarryman’s cottage built around 1855 and located inside the iconic Snowdonia National Park within the traditional Welsh village of Trawsfynydd. This two bed cottage sleeps up to four people.

The Lake
Traswfynydd lake is set amongst sheep, horse & cow fields all separated by dry stone walls with a beautiful mountainous back drop offering relaxation in abundance and all within a short walk from the cottage.

The space
The cottage has central heating with double glazed windows & doors. You will have free access to the super fast WiFi.

I allow one house trained pet, your pet should not be left alone within the cottage. I charge a one of fee of £25.00 for your pet as this covers the extra cleaning required.

The Lounge
Exposed beams, central heating & fairy lights blend the scene offering a warm & cosy feel. The lounge has a 40 inch Smart TV wired to super fast WiFi enabling viewing of all associated free apps ‘’there is NO TV aerial’’. A DVD player has also been provided.

On the book shelf you will find a selection of DVDs, books, board & quiz games all provided for evening entertainment. Local guide & tourist books detailing some of the attractions on offer within the National Park can also be found.

The Kitchen
The well equipped kitchen has a washing machine, microwave, electric hob, electric cooker, fridge, tassimo coffee maker ‘pods not supplied’, toaster, sandwich toaster, kettle, smoothie maker, cutlery & crockery and all wares. I have also supplied a slow cooker enabling preparation of meals before venturing out. An Alexa has also been installed so you can listen to music whilst enjoying a glass or two of wine.

The Bathroom
The bathroom is fitted with a bath and over head shower. Clean fresh bath towels are supplied for guests, there is also a hair dryer for guests personal use. There is no shaving socket within the bathroom. When showering, taller guests should be mindful of the exposed beam which has been identified with a hazard sign.

The Bedrooms
Both rooms have double beds. Room one has a view out to rolling sheep fields whilst room two looks up to the stars. Both rooms are centrally heated with double glazed windows, both bedrooms offer a relaxing warm cosy cottage feel. Hot water bottles are also supplied to ensure your bed can be warmed on the coldest of Welsh winter nights.

Please check out my Guests Guide Book within this listing which details places of interest with suggestions on local pubs and restaurants.

Please respect your neighbours, the beautiful countryside and the tranquillity of the village. Please DO NOT litter. When crossing sheep fields down to the lake always close any gates you may go through.

From the cottage it’s just a short walk via the village to access the eye watering lake of Trawsfynydd. The lake can be walked, cycled or run around, it’s just over 8 miles in circumference offering bridges, a dam, mountains, rolling sheep & cattle fields with their dry stone walls and a cafe where you can sit and soak up the outstanding beauty.
