The Cottage

North Lodge dates back to 1790 and was in former times a gate house to Cors-y-Gedol Hall. Standing proud in its own third of an acre garden just two minutes from sandy beaches and rugged mountains.

The kitchen is fully equipped to today’s highest standards (a fridge, a freezer, electric cooker, a microwave and a dishwasher)
There is a dining area in the kitchen but the inviting dining room with its large oak table makes meals feel a little more special.

The downstairs cloakroom come utility room has a toilet, a washbasin and a washer dryer.

In the lounge, the cottage has been tastefully restored to echo its original high beamed ceiling. What could be nicer after a long day than sitting in front of a roaring fire with a bottle of wine relaxing watching a video, a DVD or just listening to music?

Along the sandy shores is the historic town of Harlech with its impressive castle together with the famous Royal St. David's golf course and an excellent theatre.

Walkers and cyclists will be delighted with the new routes to be found in the nearby area.

The backdrop of our area is the Rhinog mountain range, where you will find some of the most rugged and remote terrain in Wales. Two valleys penetrate the region; Cwm Bychan with its tranquil lake and path to the Roman Steps, and Cwm Nantcol with its challenging peaks, woodland trails and waterfalls.

There are several peaks to be conquered throughout Snowdonia, with varying degrees of difficlty suitable for all levels of fitness and experience.
