If you really want that truly authentic Welsh experience of a traditional stone cottage way out in the wilds, then you really owe it to yourself to view this superb residence - the position and views are peerless. Sitting at roughly 850 feet above sea level and just within the boundaries of the Snowdonia National Park, Hafod Caeronwy transports you back in time to how the crofters and quarrymen would have lived in these parts in times past. Sitting on the lower slopes of Mynydd Mawr and enjoying a superb southerly aspect, the views over the Nantlle Valley towards Nantlle Lake are truly fabulous - this is excellent walking country and the seclusion it affords is tangible. The cottage, which is Grade II Listed comes with approximately 1¾ Acres of gardens/land and has been sympathetically restored. Its interior is a joy to behold, offering thick irregular stone walls with a deep inglenook (with multi-fuel stove), pitched ceilings, slate and tile flagged floors and a cosy crogloft. It's the attention to detail that makes this cottage stand out, with hand-made kitchen units, window panelling, exposed timber floors and beams and even a highly functional bathroom that has a definite retro feel - in a good way mind. The accommodation is far roomier than first impressions might suggest and highly practical too with a useful utility room, external store, ample private parking and as much fresh air as you can breathe in! Benefitting from Economy 7 storage heating, the accommodation briefly affords: Kitchen, Utility Room, Living Room, Hall, Bathroom, 2 Bedrooms and a Crogloft Bedroom. If rural life appeals or you fancy this as an investment opportunity as holiday accommodation, then we couldn't recommend Hafod Caeronwy more highly. 

LOCATION The property sits hidden away on the periphery of the village of Upper Llandwrog, more commonly known as Y Fron. This rural village is surrounded by magnificent mountain scenery and rugged countryside - the drama of Snowdonia! The village has a quarrying past, the evidence of which can clearly be seen in the local landscape. Access to the mountains couldn't be easier and there are many public footpaths that criss-cross the countryside allowing for plenty of country walks amidst fantastic scenery. The village has a primary school and enjoys a regular bus service to Penygroes and Caernarfon which lies approximately 6 miles distant. Caernarfon of course offers a great shopping experience under the watchful eye of the magnificent 13th century castle. Here you will find a wide range of amenities, schools and leisure facilities within the town. Of course, Penygroes also has many amenities closer to hand, offering a huge choice and variety.
