Harlech apartment description

I've been to Sylfaen a number of times before, our oldest daughter, Lowri, is best friends with Alaw, the youngest daughter at the farm. I knew there were some fantastic views up in those hills above Barmouth, I knew there were some fantastic old farm cottages up there. But I was still amazed when Rob, Alaw's dad, took my a little further up the valley to see his newly restored stone cottage.
Formerly the home of a sea captain sailing from Barmouth, this 3 bedroom stone cottage commands truly spectacular views over the Mawddach estuary and Cader Idris beyond. The cottage itself is a traditional build of stonewalls under a welsh slate roof. I was sold on the place before I stepped over the threshold. But I can happily report that the cottage is perfect on the inside too.
As you step in, a lovely log burner has been placed in the large original inglenook fireplace to the left. This, combined with some comfortable seating and rustic oak beams creates a lovely cosy sitting area. A modern fitted kitchen has been installed to the right. Practical functionality, integrated dishwasher, modern cooker etc., plus nice touches like a granite worktop and a Belfast sink. The small dinning area is adjacent.
A door leading off the kitchen takes you to a split level bedroom area. Upstairs a large double bedroom has the best views in the house perhaps. Downstairs there's a smaller twin room. All the beds are as you'd expect of a 5 star cottage and covered with crisp clean linen. The bathroom next to this twin room has a modern white suite with bath and shower attachment.
Back into the kitchen to climb up the bespoke spiral staircase to the last and largest of the three bedrooms. The original oak roof frame gives this en-suite double bedroom a special sense of character and style. The en-suite bathroom has a modern powerful shower as well as a luxurious roll top bath.

          Location

          Car: Recommended

          Many visitors to this area will have already ventured up out of Barmouth to explore the well-known Panorama walk. Famous for it's vista across this seaside location. Few if any will have climbed further up this single track road however. The views up here are even better of course. I suspect the pleasure of the observer is enhanced by the knowledge that only a handful of people are privy to this secret spot.

          Barmouth itself has been a popular seaside holiday destination since Victorian times when the new Cambrian coast railway opened up this secluded part of North Wales to the cities and towns of England. The conversion of Coed-Y-Moel into a well-appointed self-catering holiday cottage is evidence of a new trend towards more luxurious accommodation and a renewed enthusiasm for the region.

          And it's difficult not to get exited about the area. Adventure sports are becoming increasingly popular. Everything from kite surfing and sea kayaking to rock climbing and mountain biking. More unhurried activities such as fishing, golf and walking are also enjoyed by many. Our more cultured guests will enjoy the huge array of historical attractions. Narrow gauge steam railways and slate quarries lay testament to our industrial heritage while impressive castles like Harlech and Caernarvon remind us of a time when Celtic – Anglo relations weren't quite as amicable as they are now perhaps.
