The space
Gorphwysfa is cosy, warm and well located detached 2-bedroom cottage in the heart of Snowdonia. Built of stone in 1820 it has recently been modernised and now boasts a lovely stone floor with warm underfloor heating throughout.


- King size double bedroom on the ground floor with an open wardrobe, mirror and dressing table.
- Twin room on the first floor which can be arranged as two singles, or pulled together (as pictured). There is a Velux window with blackout blind. Outside this room is a snug landing area which provides an open wardrobe and a mirror. This is accessed by a space saver staircase which may not be suitable for small children or elderly guests.


- The cosy living area has a comfortable Harris Tweed sofa and chair, with additional wool blankets available. You'll find a 43" Smart TV, cards and games to keep you entertained in front of the log burner.


- The dining table generously seats 4 adults and is ideal for those home-cooked meals after a day's exploring.
- The kitchen is just the right size with everything you need to self-cater, including hot water dispenser, Nespresso coffee machine & milk frother. The usual amenities are all available including oven, microwave and induction hob.


- On the ground floor is a generously sized shower room with toilet, basin and heated towel rail. There is a large hot walk-in power shower.


- To the rear of the property is a small yard with access to the driveway.
- There is a mezzanine deck area set in to the mountain behind the cottage - a private sun trap on a nice day! This is accessed by a ladder (with handrail) and care should be taken to get up to this area.


- There is parking available directly next to the property on a private driveway.
- It is also possible to park on the pavement directly in front of the property.
- In the cottage are 2x parking permits to use the 'Gwesty Cobdens' Hotel parking, which is just across the road.
