The property

Hafod y Rhedrwydd is a cosy, detached cottage in the Snowdonia National Park.

Looking down 700ft to the valley below, Hafod is one of the highest houses in Wales and is set in complete seclusion, with beautiful panoramic views of the surrounding National Trust countryside.

A mountain stream, crossed by a slate bridge, flows through the garden, which includes the remains of a 17th century Welsh longhouse.

Despite its tranquil location, a wide range of activities are within easy reach of the house, including mountains, beaches, castles, towns and pretty villages. Formerly owned by The National Trust, the house is built from traditional Welsh materials and has been beautifully decorated and furnished, with many character features, including wooden beams and floors, an oil burning stove, claw foot bath and a Stanley range cooker in the kitchen.

Complementing these character features, the cottage has modern facilities, including Freesat HD TV. Hafod sleeps up to five people, in three bedrooms, with one bathroom.

The cottage is an ideal retreat for a family holiday or for groups of friends seeking peace and solitude amongst stunning scenery, yet close to a wide range of activities.

From 27th March 2021, single household only travel is permitted within Wales. Hafod is set well back from a very quiet mountain road and there is car parking space for two cars. The house is entered via the front door, which leads to the downstairs rooms: Kitchen/diner: A room which oozes character, with wooden floors and beams, Belfast sink, microwave, toaster, kettle, fridge (no freezer compartment) and a stunning Stanley oil fired range cooker.

There is a wooden dining table, with seating for five; Living room: A good sized, yet cosy room, with oak beams, stone surround fire place containing an oil burning stove and leather sofas seating five.

There is a Freesat HD TV, with DVD player; Bathroom: The large ground floor bathroom contains a claw foot bath, toilet and basin, with lovely views down to the valley floor. Stairs lead up from the ground floor to the first floor landing, off which are three bedrooms, all with beautiful views across the hills or down the valley: Bedroom 1: Contains a double bed; Bedroom 2: Contains a double bed; Bedroom 3: Contains a single bed. Heading back downstairs and outside, the garden contains slate terraces, stone steps and the historic remains of a 17th century Welsh longhouse.

Flowing through the garden, crossed by a slate bridge, is a mountain stream.

The garden is very quiet and tranquil, with just the wildlife for company, perfect for both adults and children to relax in.

The surrounding countryside forms part of the Migneint SSSI, noteworthy for many species, including the spectacular Hen Harrier.

There is an outdoor table and seating.

About the location

CWM PENMACHNO

Betws-y-Coed 8 miles.

The scattered, sleepy village of Cwm Penmachno is situated in the beautiful Machno Valley, just 8 miles from the popular town of Betws-y-Coed. Surrounded by dense woodland, magnificent mountains and flowing rivers, the whole area is a haven for walkers, birdwatchers, mountain bikers and climbers, whilst Betws-y-Coed itself offers a good range of shops, pubs and cafes. Here the River Conwy meets its three tributaries creating a host of cascading waterfalls, river pools and ancient bridges throughout the surrounding countryside, the most famous of which is the magnificent waterfall at Swallow Falls, situated where the River Llugwy meets with a spectacular chasm creating a sight not to be missed! With all of Snowdonia to explore and North Wales' Heritage Coastlines also within easy reach, this beautiful location is perfect for outdoor activities or a quiet “away from it all” holiday at any time of year!
