All about Milo’s Cottage
Built in 1863, resting in the friendly village of Abergynolwyn, Gwynedd, a car journey away from Tywyn and its hub of amenities, is Milo’s Cottage, a lovely, mid-terrace, slate cottage.
Nestled in the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Snowdonia National Park, whilst within close distance of the coastline, Milo’s Cottage is an inviting base for a family of four, complete with original features, a contemporary interior, and two private gardens.
Park up on the roadside and travel through the pretty front garden, reaching the lovely, stone-fronted exterior of Milo’s Cottage.
Head indoors to be welcomed into the stylish, open-plan living space, where you can unwind, prepare delicious meals, and dine as a family; the space features lofty ceilings, and a light feel, making it a delightful area to call home.
Head to the rear of the property if you’d prefer an alfresco affair, with a patio table set up for mealtimes, before retiring to one of the two well-appointed bedrooms on offer; select between a double and a handy twin, ideal for couples sharing, friends or families.
Awaken to a refreshing shower in the sleek shower room, before exploring some of the many hidden gems, dotted throughout the breath-taking countryside.
You’ll find a plethora of great walks and runs that start right from your front door, including those that can bring you to Dolgoch Waterfall, Craig Yr Aderyn, which is ideal for hiking, and Penygader peak upon Cadair Idris – all are worth a visit.
Take the short drive to Tywyn, where you can enjoy a leisurely stroll along Tywyn Beach and also find your nearest amenities; stock up on the essentials, catch a film at The Magic Lantern Cinema, before dining out at Proper Gander, or Salt Marsh Kitchen for some traditional, Welsh fare; Aberdyfi Beach also offers a stunning terrain, covering over 3 miles of golden beach.
Abergynolwyn is also accessible by car, famous for the Talyllyn preserved railway that runs through the old slate mine into the heart of the village, making for a great day out.
Whilst you’re in the region, stop by the ruins of Castell-Y-Bere, often referred to as “Wales’ forgotten castle”.
Barmouth, the Mawddach Trail, and the thrilling Zip World attraction of Penrhyn Quarry can also provide a day’s worth of entertainment whilst you’re in the region.
Round off your break by heading to Dolgellau, where you’ll find the remains of Cymer Abbey to tour, the New Precipice Walk / Llwybr Llanelltyd to join for the best vantage point, or Torrent Walk for a nature-filled hike, before returning home in time for supper.
