Tan-Y-Foel sleeps four guests in two bedrooms and is a secluded rural retreat in the quiet village of Eglwysbach. Sitting in an elevated position with exquisite panoramic views over the Snowdonia Mountain range, Tan-Y-Foel is ideal for couples and families wanting a break away from it all in the Welsh countryside. Set within farmland, Tan-Y-Foel is surrounded by fields where cows and sheep graze.
This two bedroom bungalow has been tastefully refurbished and is in an excellent location for countryside walking, bird watching and cycling. There are a huge variety of places to visit for everyone, including places of historic interest, outdoor activities and beaches. The stunning National Trust property, Bodnant Gardens, is in the same village and the Conwy RSPB nature reserve is nearby for avid birdwatchers.
Llandudno, a charming Victorian seaside town is perfect for a day out with a traditional pier and plenty of gift shops. Visit the Great Orme and walk the paths and trails discovering the Kashmir goats and seabirds on the way! You can also try the dry ski slopes, visit the Venue Cymru theatre and take in a show, enjoy excellent shopping facilities or watch a movie at the multiplex cinema complex - all just six miles away.
The picturesque medieval walled town of Conwy with its impressive castle and cobbled streets with pubs, restaurants and shops is just five miles away. Snowdonia National Park is approximately twenty five miles away and you can take the train up to the top of the Snowdon Mountain from Llanberis and take in the amazing views and scenery. Colwyn Bay, home to the Welsh Mountain Zoo is five miles and Caernarfon town with its momentous castle where Prince Charles was invested is only twenty five miles away.
Other attractions within easy reach are: Zip World in Bethesda where you can experience the thrill of 'flying' (or the nearest thing to it) on the mile long zip lines (500ft high so not for the faint hearted); the Tree Top Adventure site at Llanwrst providing high rope activities; the world's largest underground trampoline called Bounce Below, set in an enormous cavern at a former Welsh slate mine in Blanenau Ffesteniog (forty minutes drive); the popular town of Betws-Y-Coed which is popular with walkers and offers many shops selling outdoor equipment, restaurants and a nine hole parkland golf course set in spectacular scenery; the North Wales regions of Anglesey and the Lleyn Peninsular - both within driving distance; and the stunning coastlines and beaches which have won many awards.
Suiting young and old; families and couples, Tan-Y-Foel has good wheelchair access and is also suitable for people with limited mobility (please discuss your requirements with the owner prior to booking to ensure the cottage is suitable both inside and out).
