I almost don't know where to begin to describe this incredible place. I was introduced to it as a teenager in 1996 and we have all returned many times (9 or 10 I reckon), eventually I had my own young family to take and they love it too.
We tend to go in Spring when the lambs have just been born, so there's a fair bit of bleating goes on, but it just blummin adorable, and children love to see the little wool bundles gamboling in the field next to the cottage. However, we've been in Autumn too and I get the feeling that the place is stunning all year round.
There are lots of things to do nearby and none of it is particularly expensive either, so that's a big plus. Some of our favourites are the Festiniog railway (that goes right past the cottage (but whereas trains might be a noise nuisance elsewhere, the narrow gauge steam trains are fantastic and remind us all of simpler times). Beddgellert is such an incredibly beautiful village, definitely go there!. Harlech beach walking through Royal St David's golf course is always spotlessly clean and is never busy.
Definitely go, I promise you will love it.More
