A perfect spot for a holiday on the Welsh coast, near Snowdonia National Park. Stay in this unique and quirky romantic retreat in Llwyngwril village. Bring the pup along and explore this wonderful area.

In the vicinity of this quaint property, there are countless footpaths to explore, as well as a rocky beach. Enjoy culinary delights, independent shops and a host of attractions in and around the area. Take a gentle stroll on said beach, join the coastal path or climb Cadair Idris (13.5 miles) in Snowdonia National Park. Enjoy the wildlife and waters of the estuaries at Mawddach (11 miles) and Dyfi (14.5 miles), board the steam train on the Talyllyn narrow-gauge historic railway (9 miles), go underground and explore in the Corris slate mines (17 miles) or relax on Fairbourne’s sandy beach (3 miles). Visit renowned Portmeirion Village Gardens (34 miles), the Ynys-Hir RSPB reserve (26 miles), or the pretty waterfall at Dolgoch Falls (10 miles). Nearby Aberdovey (12 miles) offers a championship golf course, water sport activities from the harbour, as well as shops, galleries and eateries.

This quirky cottage nestled just inland from the coast is full of character with wooden floors and a feature fireplace. The whole property is flooded with natural light due to the sky lights. There’s an open plan lounge/kitchen/diner for when you decide to eat in; the kitchen having been creatively designed to include an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with freezer compartment, washing machine and all the thoughtful little extras you’ll need to cook a wonderful romantic meal. The rustic dining table is perfectly positioned by the window to enjoy a meal and plan your activities. After a full day out step up into the lounge and onto the comfy reclining sofa to snuggle up and watch TV, and on a cooler evening, you can enjoy the warmth of the wood-burner. There is a stylish wet room with a shower and WC and when you are ready for bed, head off to the double bedroom and enjoy a good night’s sleep.

Outside you will find a multi-level garden with slate paths and steps up to viewing areas where you can relish in sea views over the village and try to spot the local wildlife. On the top level enjoy morning coffee on the table and chairs, or al fresco dining with the charcoal BBQ and firepit - a perfect spot for sundowners with stunning views. After dropping off your luggage, drive 300 metres to the allocated private parking for one car, and if you are bringing your bikes there is a locking anchor in the garden with side access for ease of use.

This was a great place to stay , a lovely short walk past a stream to the pub, shop and beach. Everyone we met was so friendly.

A smashing cottage, combining old with the new really works. Cottage was immaculate, bed really comfortable just what we needed to chill out. It is located behind some cottages, but it is so quiet and peaceful with a added bonus of a garden with a excellent view of the sea and beach. Really enjoyed our stay.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Whitstable is one of Kent’s most popular seaside towns, not only for its long shingle beaches, dotted with colourful huts and houses, but also for its annual Oyster Festival, when the town really comes alive. Here you can sample this renowned delicacy which has been collected in the area since Roman times and brings visitors from all over the globe to get a glimpse of the first catch of the season. Still a working harbour, you can sample a plethora of seafood from the stalls and restaurants as you watch the fishing boats return from sea, or pop up to the bohemian main street with its quirky colourful shops and galleries. Keep to the seaside theme and hire bikes to ride along the coast to Herne Bay just two miles away, or try the famous inland Crab and Winkle Way, which follows the old railway line between Whitstable and Canterbury and is packed with history and nostalgia. Relax with lazy days at the beach, building sandcastles and exploring hidden rock pools or take a long walk along the vast stretch of shingle beach. The area has lots of other beach walks, as well many country and woodland trails nearby, perfect for both you and the family dog! For a little culture, pay a visit to the town’s famous 18th century Castle and Gardens, Playhouse Theatre and Whitstable Museum and Gallery, all perfect for an afternoon or evening out. Only eight miles north of the cathedral city of Canterbury with its popular glass-fronted Marlowe Theatre, you are also just half an hour away from the up-and-coming seaside town of Margate and 45 minutes away from the port of Dover with its famous white cliffs. Slightly further afield, you will find the historic Cinque Ports towns of amongst others, Rye, Hastings and Tenterden where you will find a variety of spectacular monuments and beautiful castles to visit with all the family. Whitstable really is the perfect place for those who want to get back to how holidays used to be – full of fun, adventure and family.
