A mountain stream, crossed by a slate bridge, flows through the garden, which includes the remains of a 17th century Welsh longhouse.

Hafod y Rhedrwydd is a cosy, detached cottage in the Snowdonia National Park. Looking down 700ft to the valley below, Hafod is one of the highest houses in Wales and is set in complete seclusion, with beautiful panoramic views of the surrounding National Trust countryside. A mountain stream, crossed by a slate bridge, flows through the garden, which includes the remains of a 17th century Welsh longhouse. Despite its tranquil location, a wide range of activities are within easy reach of the house, including mountains, beaches, castles, towns and pretty villages. Formerly owned by The National Trust, the house is built from traditional Welsh materials and has been beautifully decorated and furnished, with many character features, including wooden beams and floors, an oil burning stove, claw foot bath and a Stanley range cooker in the kitchen. Complementing these character features, the cottage has modern facilities, including Freesat HD TV. Hafod sleeps up to five people, in three bedrooms, with one bathroom. The cottage is an ideal retreat for a family holiday or for groups of friends seeking peace and solitude amongst stunning scenery, yet close to a wide range of activities. House Rules Security deposits Security deposits are not required. Pets Regrettably, pets are not accepted at Hafod y Rhedrwydd. Bed sizes and configurations Bedroom 1: Double bed Bedroom 2: Double bed Bedroom 3: One single bed Fuel and logs Hafod y Rhedwyrdd is a secluded farmhouse cottage, which is totally “off the grid”, creating its own power and sourcing natural water. Cottages like this are rare in the UK and a couple of key features should be noted: The cottage generates its own electricity, using a petrol powered generator in the outbuilding next to the house. Operating instructions are provided and a degree of practicality and common sense is needed to operate the system; The cottage is supplied by fresh spring water and is not connected to the mains water supply. On occasion, the water intake system can block due to natural circumstances, such as fallen leaves, which causes the supply to be interrupted. In such circumstances, guests are advised to unblock the intake filter and instructions on how to do so are provided in the cottage. A £100 oil deposit is payable directly to the owners prior to the commencement of the holiday. Upon departure, the owner will read the oil meter and the resultant charge will be deducted from the oil deposit. The balance will then be refunded within a week of the date of departure. Please note that this is a private arrangement between the owner and the guest, which does not involve Character Cottages.

About the neighbourhood
Situated on the west coast of Britain, covering 823 square miles of diverse landscapes, Snowdonia National Park is the largest National Park in Wales. The complex and diverse geology of Snowdonia has done much to shape the present landscape. Great mountain ranges have been pushed up out of the oceans only to be slowly eroded away. Volcanic rocks have produced distinctive features on Snowdon, Cadair Idris, the Glyderau, the Carneddau and Arenig.
Getting around
It is a rural location and whilst there is access to public transport, it is highly recommended that you have a car.
