Two cottages in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park. In 30 acres of privately owned woodland they offer a striking sense of freedom and security. They are two-thirds of a mile from the road along a private track, in a highly scenic and secluded position. While perfectly passable to all normal cars, the track is rough, steep and narrow in places and may not suit particularly unconfident drivers. Out of sight of one another, the two cottages are 300 metres apart at different levels.
Excellent walks from the front door along a network of paths and tracks take you through deciduous woods protected by the National Park, National Trust and Woodland Trust and mixed forestry. The new Wales Coast Path is close by. A swimming lake and request stop on the Ffestiniog Railway are both within easy walking distance. Maentwrog village with a good pub is 2 miles away. Hafod's location 10 miles from Harlech's sandy beach and castle to the south and 10 miles from Snowdon to the north makes it an ideal base for exploring Snowdonia.
