This ancient house has been tastefully modernized for 21st century but still holds all the charm and history of a 14th century long house. Nantcol overlooks the spectacular Rhinog mountains at the end of Cwm Nantcol. Ideal for families or just a couple wanting to enjoy the beauty and peace of the area. Sleeps 7 - 3 bedrooms - well equipped farmhouse kitchen + electric Aga. Large living room with 2 open fires.
Nantcol is owned by the Grant family who have lovingly restored this ancient house. It was found derelict in 1945. Every effort has been made to keep its character and yet bring it into the 21st century with an electric Aga and washing machines etc. The entire greater family simply love Nantcol and our guests make frequent return visits. We are now on 4 generations of families coming to this unique property.
Stephanie Grant purchased this cottage in 1949
The great beauty of the area is restorative after the rigours of every day life. The peace and tranquillity certainly makes one feel good to be alive.
Although Nantcol is at the end of this hidden valley its only 5 miles from civilization. Closeby our miles of sandy beaches with safe swimming, historic castles and beautiful gardens to visit.
For those people whose lives are constantly being run by technology, Nantcol boasts no internet but only a landline. For many people this is an added bonus.
Peace to read, contemplate, draw or just sit and take in the great splendour of the Rhinog mountains.
This property is very special indeed.
Nantcol has been everything we hoped for and more. On opening the front door we found a wonderful interior with brasses, pictures. It is possibly one of the best equipped cottages in Snowdonia.
...to be somewhere so far removed from normal life, surrounded by mountains and silence and to walk endlessly.
We are lost in admiration of how the perfect get away from it all has been achieved.
The Welsh mountains were nothing new to me but Nantcol was. Crossing the threshold I had an enormous feeling of warmth and friendlinesss.
The remoteness of this house, the ruggedness of the scenery and the feeling of welcome on arrival makes this place magic.
Nantcol seems like of those fixed points in life which never seems to change.
Thank you the Grants for sharing this magical Nantcol with us.
