(near Barmouth) - A one bedroom stone cottage on the beautiful Cambrian coast line, Snowdonia.
Bwthyn Clyd is the second cottage that Bethan and Gary have renovated. And it’s every bit as stylish as their first one, Bwthyn Bach. It’s been immaculately decorated and filled with modern elegant furniture.
As you walk in, stable doors open onto a spacious lounge with leather furniture, flat screen tv etc. On the right, a breakfast bar separates this living area from a modern galley kitchen. All the facilities you’d expect here and, again, the crockery and accessories are tastefully chosen. Bethans influence I suspect more than Gary’s. A door to the left leads to the double bedroom with its luxurious king size bed. The contemporary bathroom includes a large shower cubicle with power shower. Lots of storage space which is perhaps unusual for a holiday let. And the bedding and towels are crisp and fresh as guests to the first cottage would expect. All in all a perfect base for couples or young families to explore this rural part of southern Snowdonia.
In the summer most people will visit the cottage because of the miles of Green Coast award winning sandy beaches nearby. And there certainly worth the trip no matter what time of year you decide to stay. But this particular corner of Snowdonia also offers walkers a wealth of undiscovered bridleways and footpaths in some of the most beautiful scenery of the National Park.
The mountains here offer a welcome alternative to the more heavily visited peaks to the north. You can walk the higher ridges here all day without bumping into another living sole. I’m not sure if there are many areas in the UK where that’s still true.
There are two pubs in the village both serving food as well as a post office, small grocery store and garage. The larger towns of Barmouth and Harlech are 5 miles to the south and north respectively.

"We thought Bwthyn Clyd was great accommodation and handy for getting to loads of marvellous places.
Everything was of a high standard and decorative order.
Some hooks for dressing gowns in the bathroom and bedroom would have been good (It was a cold spring week) and definitely some coat hooks by the front door as it would have been difficult to put wet coats anywhere."

"The most beautiful cottage with a home from home feel with all the fantastic little finishing touches. The rooms were all decorated to a high standard. We took a box of ‘stuff’ to self cater and only went in it for our Easter eggs as everything else was provided-from tea bags to salt and pepper and from fresh milk to kitchen roll (the best of quality I’ve ever known)
We all had a fabulous weekend and enjoyed chatting to the horses in the fields.
We will defiantly be returning next year.
Many thanks for a great stay"
