About the Owner

Hello - thanks for looking at our property. We've owned the cottage for a couple of years & have been slowly refurbishing it as time has permitted. We live in Staffordshire.

We bought the cottage because we love this part of the world. Samantha, my other half, has been coming to the area for most of her life. We both love walking as does our whippet - Dyfi - who's particularly keen on the beach.

We've tried to maintain the cottage feel as much as possible whilst providing the modern amenities you'd expect.

Hope you enjoy your stay - David.

From the Owner

We've been coming to the area for years & love the combination of coastal & mountainous scenery that the Snowdonia National Park offers. Harlech is a great vantage point to go & explore. You're within an hour's drive of most parts of the National Park & onto the Llyn Peninsula. We're keen walkers & I cycle but we’ve only covered a tiny area. Whatever you choose to do the beauty of natural landscape is never far away. At the end of the day, it’s great to come back to Harlech which is surprisingly quiet at night, have a drink in the pub & then go back & relax in front of the fire.

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

This a great location for anyone who enjoys getting away whether that be to just relax or to get outdoors & explore. Harlech is wonderfully laid back place with a handful of shops, cafes, pubs & restaurants. There are great walks directly from the cottage around the hills & coastline surrounding Harlech. Being within the Snowdonia National Park & a 45 minute drive onto the Lynn penisula the options for walking are endless. Barmouth & Portmadog are both a 20 to 30 minute drive away & have much to offer.


Harlech beach is second to none & stretches for miles. Its a beautiful sandy beach backed by the dunes of the Morfa Harlech Nature Reserve & with views over Tremadoc bay & Snowdonia. One side allows dogs - see sign as you walk onto the beach which side this is (as it varies).


Harlech is an hour's drive from Bala. Nearest large towns are Portmadog which is a 30 minute drive & Barmouth a 20 minute drive.

Further Details:

Harlech has three pubs - the nearest (The Loin) is our favourite. There are two convenience stores, restaurants, a chippy, a kebab house & several tearooms. And of course, a fantastic castle!

From the Owner

The location of the cottage works for us as it’s a short walk to the pub, the restaurants & shops. At the same time it’s a quiet spot as the cottage sits above the high street & traffic up & down Pen Dref is light. It’s great to sit out the back with a drink & watch the sun go down. Or if it’s raining, retire to the lounge & stoke up the wood burner. Enjoy!
