Pretty 18th century stone cottage retains much of its original character and charm. Located in Llwyngwril village, ideal for a romantic holiday to explore the coast and countryside in North Wales.

This characterful 18th-century cottage is your quirky home in the hills of North Wales, perfect for a romantic break away (with your dog as the third wheel, of course). Situated in the village of Llwyngwril, on a breathtaking coastal road, the cottage provides a cosy base from which to explore the climbs of Snowdonia.

The property is full of period features, unusual rooms, and contemporary touches. Enter into your open-plan living room and kitchen, with flagstone floors and an original hearth. Cottage-style stairs take you up to your charming double bedroom and seaside-themed bathroom. Outside, the garden has been designed with surprise in mind. Little paths, a fire pit, a charcoal BBQ, and inviting lights for open-air evenings heighten the romance. At the edge of the patio, a natural rill provides the relaxing soundtrack of water trickling down to a nearby stream. Most importantly, it’s a safe, fun space for your dog to chill out in.

You’ll have to make many return-trips to cover all the sights and attractions of Aberdovey and the surrounding landscape. Described as “one of Britain’s breathing spaces,” Snowdonia is a world unto itself. First comes the beach, less than a mile away, perfect for checking “sandy paws” off the bucket list. From the cottage, a beautiful 27-mile drive will bring you to Harlech Castle and its atmospheric grounds. And if wildlife and waterfalls are your thing, try a visit to the Dyfi estuary, 23 miles away, where sea, sky, and mountains meet, or the Dolgoch Falls, 11 miles away.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Great location for exploring the area with the train station only being a few minutes walk away.

Very comfortable and cosy. Lovely Very welcoming with wine and chocolate, and ample tea and coffee. Situated on main road with very narrow pavement so difficult to load and unload the car. Handy car park very close. Shop very close but local pub seems to be unreliable, either closed or not serving food.

Shame about the pub over the road being closed. Lovely walks and very friendly villagers, interesting village. Been visited by Julie Waters due to the knitting club held in the adjacent cafe, only open on Wednesday between 1030Hrs and 1230Hrs. If you love trains both steam and diesel, then this is the place for you. Be very careful when first arrivRead moreing as the front door is very close to a fast coastal road and very narrow. Hide

Wobbly cottage is a cute place with a garden for the dog. It sits between Aberdovy and Barmouth and there are great beaches all around. The cottage is well equipped and clean. We arrived to a welcome of wine and chocolates...very thoughtful.

Lovely cosy, comfy clean Cottage in a very quiet village. Private enclosed Garden to sit in and enjoy and safe to leave the Dog out in. 5 minutes walk to a pebbly beach. The perfect place to go if you want to get away from it all and really relax. The Cottage,Village and in fact the whole area, is so Dog Friendly . Lots of places to visit nearby - Read moreAberdify (about 15 miles away) and Barmouth are especially worth a visit - long stretches of golden sand and lots of places to eat. Hide
