Green Cottage (Snowdonia National Park) Ogwen Valley
A perfectly located holiday cottage in the Snowdonia National Park catering for a family group of up to five. 'Green Cottage' is a traditional Welsh 2 bedroom stone cottage located 5 miles from the City of Bangor, 500 feet above sea level in the Ogwen Valley. The mountain views are unrivalled anywhere in Wales and yet the cottage is only 2 miles away from the A55 coastal corridor. The city of Chester is just one hour by road. There isn't a property within the National Park boundaries that matches this level of access to both the island of Anglesey with its stunning beaches and still be part of the highest mountain range in England and Wales.
This is wild unspoiled Wales and with the exception of the local bakery, little has changed since ancient times. A steep mountain stream runs under a small bridge on the lane that connects the cottage to the road network. A small convenience store is a short stroll away and a local pub 'The Royal Oak' 5 minutes on foot. There is one small farm, a church and just 4 more cottages in close proximity with the remainder towering mountains, open fields and marshland for miles around.
You have the option of enjoying the peace and privacy of the cottage or alternatively start out on the mountain paths that lead directly onto the Carneddau and Ogwen ranges. Alternatively one mile back to the A5 road takes you to the banks of the Ogwen river and its famous angling and canoeing sections. The area is also a mountain climbing mecca but for families looking for more sedate pastimes there are the North Wales castles, Welsh Highland Railways and Anglesey beaches all within a short road journey. Snowdonia is blessed with the highest concentration of outdoor adventure activities and attractions throughout the whole of the UK.
On the ground floor the cottage has a spacious kitchen with a complete range of utensils. You have a dishwasher, washing machine, fridge freezer, full oven and hob, microwave, coffee machine, toaster and kettle. A solid antique pine table in the kitchen seats 4 adults.The cozy living room has an orginal inglenook fireplace, wood burning stove, 2 easy chairs and 1 sofa. Upstairs the largest bedroom with views to the mountains accommodates 2 twin beds. Bedroom 2 is a double with views over the island of Anglesey. Each bedroom is seperated by a short landing. The bathroom is fitted with a jacuzzi bath and an electric shower. For entertainment there is a large wall mounted TV, a DVD player and a library of films.
