(near Barmouth) - Becws, a self catering cottage, sleeping 2, overlooking Shell Island & Cardigan Bay
Becws used to be an old bakery but don’t worry you wont be expected to wake up at the crack of dawn to bake any bread. The building has of course been lovingly restored into a great little holiday cottage. A big oak front door leads you straight into the living area. A high lofted oak beamed ceiling provides a sense of space and light. A large inglenook complete with the original baking ovens dominates the right side of the room. To the left oak kitchen units provide a well equipped food preparation area.
The pretty bedroom has a king sized bed as well as plenty of wardrobe space and lighting. The bathroom next door is spacious and comes complete with a hydrotherapy steam shower. You can of course turn a few nobs and just use it as an ordinary shower if you prefer.
Funnily enough one of the nicest parts of this cottage is the corridor which connects these two living spaces. This corridor has been glazed down one side. Which allows guests to drink in the magnificent views that this cottage enjoys. The french doors here give access to a small, private and sheltered courtyard area. Just perfect for enjoying a glass of wine as the sun dips down into cardigan bay at the end of a relaxing day.
Becws might have the best views of all our properties. Sitting in a slightly elevated position this great little cottage looks out over the sands of Shell Island and the Artro estuary and onto Cardigan Bay and the mountains of the Llyn Peninsula beyond. The little village of Llanbedr is about a mile down the road. There are two pubs in the village as well as a small grocery store, post office and butchers.
You’re right on the doorstep of Cwm Nantcol and the Rhinnog Mountains so plenty of opportunities for walkers. And the beaches along this stretch of the north wales coastline are among the nicest in the UK. And no, it doesn’t always rain in wales. Other attractions include golf on the Royal St Davids links course in Harlech, mountain biking at the award winning Coed Y Brennin Centre and White water rafting on the Tryweryn river.

"Definitely recommend staying at Becws. It has lovely sea views, its cosey and has all facilities you would need. The location was ideal for Barmouth and Porthmadog. The beaches near by could be accessed easily on foot."

"First visit to Wales, absolutely stunning. Will definitely go back. The cottage was so charming and characterful and with such lovely views from the patio area. We were greeted at the end of each exhilarating day by the three resident farm dogs adding that little welcoming touch. Area is fantastic with so much to see, we didn’t even touch the sides of it, from mountains to coastal walks, places to visit, you certainly won’t be disappointed. Would certainly recommend. Wine and welsh cakes much appreciated from the owners who were welcoming and helpful. Special place with special memories to look back on."
Wendy Childs, Nottinghamshire
"A beautiful and charming cottage which was lovely and warm in November. While situated next to other inhabited farm buildings, it was very private and quiet with front facing views of a beautiful coastline. We spent a lot of time on Royal St David’s golf course and it was a great location for some good little restaurants. There is so much to do in Snowdonia that you can’t get bored! Would definitely recommend as a fantastic alternative to hotels or b&b’s as life moves at your own pace! Many thanks for a lovely stay."

"Sometimes, having looked forward to a treat for quite some time, one can be really disappointed at the reality. NOT THIS TIME. I had booked ‘BECWS’ back in February to celebrate my hubby’s birthday just gone. Wanted peace, quiet and comfort and found all three. On our arrival we were made to feel so welcome.The old bakery accommodation is excellent. Fitted out to a really high standard we lacked for nothing. The location was ideal. Close to beaches and only short drives to great tourist spots such as Portmeirion and Carnarvon Castle. Whilst it’s late in the year the weather was mild and we were able to enjoy beautiful views across fields to the sea from the cottage and walk along the sandy coastline. A gem of a location. The ‘welcome’ welsh cakes were delicious!!"
