Welsh Holiday

Well I’ve outdone myself this time. I have found many outstanding holiday cottages over the years but none in such a spectacular location.


I arrived in torrential rain but this could not hide the stunning location of the cottage. You approach the cottage via a track which crosses over a raging river using a wooden bridge. The cottage is a converted farm building – after you park, you follow a short path which leads you through a passage between two gigantic boulders into the garden of the cottage. The cottage seems to grow out of the landscape as it is surrounded by more huge outcrops of mountain rock. It is surrounded by amazing mountain peaks on all sides, Snowdon to one side and the Glyders on the other. The view from the front of the cottage is the Crib Goch ridge.

Each of these peaks has fast flowing streams following down them – one of which flows through the garden – you can’t escape the sound of running water.

Apparently, a little way upstream, there are pools that are large enough to swim in although I suspect they will be exceedingy cold.

Also, not to forget, we had regular visitors looking though the cottage windows:
