The beautiful location of this cosy detached cottage is a perfect base for a holiday all year round – whether you are looking for an outdoor activities break or a quiet retreat, or maybe a bit of both! Situated in a secluded spot, within a wooded area, there are scenic walks straight from the doorstep, yet it is not too far from amenities. It is a great base to explore all that Snowdonia has to offer and the open fire in the lounge makes for a relaxing and comfortable evening.
The Tan-y-Garth Cottage was built at the end of the 19th centuary as the minister's house for the adjacent Methodist chapel. After the chapel was de-consecrated it was bought by the Gwydyr Club, and the Cottage was modernised to provide comfortable self-catering accomodation for up to six people at reasonable cost. There is off-road parking for two vehicles.
There are two bedrooms upstairs*, of which one is a double, and the second is a twin room. There is also a double sofa bed in the dining room. Pillows and duvets are provided for the beds and there are additional pillows and a duvet for the sofa bed. Bed linen and towels are also provided.
The kichen, which has been completely modernised recently, is fitted with an electric cooker, a microwave, fridge, kettle and toaster. There is also a washing machine and tumble dryer. All crockery and kitchen utensils are provided.
An open fire can be lit in the sitting room. Coal is provided and kept in the coal bunker behind the cottage, however you would need to bring your own kindling and firelighters as these are not provided. The dining room chimney is capped and cannot be used.
Electricity, including that for the storage heaters which operate automatically on a timer, is included in the charge for the cottage.
There is a colour TV with a video recorder and DVD player and music centre, although TV reception is quite poor due to the cottage's mountain position.
We welcome pets, provided that they have their own bedding, as they are not allowed on the beds or furniture.
* The staircase is quite steep and narrow, so the upstairs accomodation may not be suitable for disabled people.
