Llyn Golygfa holiday home details

Overlooking Lake Celyn and the mountains of Arenig Fach and Fawn, Llyn Golygfa is the ideal property if you’re hankering to get away from it all and breathe the pure country air. The cottage has been renovated but retains much of its original character, with a spectacular vaulted beam ceiling and floor to ceiling stone fire place in the living room. This open-plan area has solid oak floors throughout, while large leather chairs add an extra stylish touch.

Patio doors from the living room open out to the lawned area of the garden, where you can sit and just take in those stunning Snowdonia views. Adjacent to the living area is a large, oak fitted kitchen and utility area, with slate flagstone flooring. As well as a ground floor bedroom, a feature oak staircase leads up to three bedrooms with views of the countryside.

While you’re staying at Llyn Golygfa, you’ll be able to use the 5-acre fenced and gated paddock, with two streams flowing through the grounds and woodland walks to enjoy. You’re welcome to try your hand at fishing in the stream, but please bring your own fishing rods.

Also available to book at this location is Ty Nant Cottage (sleeping six guests). These properties can be booked individually or together to sleep 12 guests.

Attractions and nearby amenities

  • Bala Lake is a beautiful stretch of water and one of the best ways to see it is by taking one of the narrow gauge steam trains at Bala Lake Railway. The journey will take you past some of the National Park’s most stunning mountains, including Arenig Fawr and Aran Benllyn.
  • The historic mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog offers plenty to do for visitors. Take a tour into Llechwedd, a Victorian slate mine, or catch the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railway to Porthmadog. There are lots of outdoor activities on offer as well, including kayaking, climbing and fishing.
  • Designed by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, Portmeirion is a unique Welsh village built in the Italianate style. Wander around the beauty, take a tour in the footsteps of ‘The Prisoner’ or enjoy a fine dining experience at Hotel Portmeirion.
  • Harlech Castle rises from the rock and looks just as formidable today as it did back when it was first built in the thirteenth century. There’s a new visitor centre at this UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the town of Harlech itself is also a welcoming and attractive place to visit.
  • Castell Carndochan is an evocative and picturesque ruin that stands overlooking the Lliw Valley. No one really knows why it’s here, or why it was abandoned, but you can still pick out the D-shaped tower and the rectangular inner buildings.
  • There’s plenty to keep you occupied in Snowdonia, North Wales’s very own adventure playground. From zip wires to leisurely strolls, the landscape calls you to get out and about. If you’d like to tackle Yr Wyddfa – Snowdon – then you should allow six to eight hours for the hike. Unless you take the Snowdon Mountain Railway of course!
  • Lake Vyrnwy is a reservoir that supplies the North West with fresh water. It’s also an RSPB reserve that’s a haven for birdwatchers and nature lovers. You should be able to spot flycatchers and redstarts, and may even see a peregrine wheeling in the skies above you.
