Tan y Coed

Near Barmouth

Tan y Coed is a stunning prospect, but so is the picture postcard view just over the road.  Its striking contemporary finishes, plenty of on-trend glazing framing that view, and reassuringly weathered stone walls make it the sort of place you make a note of to add to your bucket list.

‘Contemporary’ doesn’t really do it justice, and ‘architect designed’ seems understated. Its unassuming luxury, but it is also homely, it’s cool Cymru modern but still cosy, and it’s the highest quality but without any airs and graces. Kick off your walking boots, then treat yourself to a bottle of champers by the fire and toast your successful assent of Cader Idris, 2,923 feet of lung bursting, life affirming splendour.

Carefully furnished using natural colours with open plan oak and slate interiors reflecting the surrounding hills. The open plan first floor living and kitchen area with a double-sided log burner and a huge dining table is the heart of the house.  Filled with reflected natural light, the full-height picture windows insist that you pause a while to gaze over the panoramic mountain views. The gentle underfloor heating compliments the crackle of the wood burner. With four bedrooms, two en-suites and a family bathroom there is space for all.  The classy bedrooms have super king beds, which can be made up as twins, and the bathrooms are to die for. There’s even a spacious utility and boot room, complete for drying cabinet, ideal for wet kit and damp pooches to dry off in. A professional gas BBQ and an enclosed and sheltered sun trap al fresco dining area is an essential ingredient for any holiday supper.

Outside, across the road you are at once on the Mawddach Estuary path – at the southern tip of the Snowdonia National Park – with nine miles of glorious walking or cycling running alongside to the river Mawddach between Barmouth and Dolgellau. For something more strenuous then tackle the Rhinog mountain range or Cader Idris – both the Pony Track and Minffordd routes are within twenty-minute drive from the house. Slightly further afield you can still access the Glyders, Tryfan and Snowdon itself in about an hour.  Well worth the trip.

About North Wales

Mount Snowdon – Yr Wyddfa in Welsh – rears its head above all else.   The highest summit in Wales and England gives its name to the Snowdonia National Park. But this big, bold 845-square-mile Park means more than mountains.
