Welcome to The Bothy at Coch Hir Farm, a cosy retreat for two.
Holiday Cottage Let from 2015
The "Bothy" building dates from the 18th century. While it now shares an entrance with the main farm house, it was probably at one point the original homestead. The owner has carefully restored the cottage using traditional methods and materials turning it into a charming, cosy retreat. It is within the curtilege of the main house but has its own secluded courtyard, and open grass area to the side. There is also ample parking available right next to the gable end.
Coch Hir Farm is situated along a rural lane snuggled in the countryside between Snowdon and the sea, under five miles from the World Heritage Site of Caernarfon, about the same distance from Llanberis at the foot of Snowdon, and only 13 minutes away from Menai Bridge (leading over to Anglesey with its beautiful beaches). From the farm entrance gate Snowdon/Yr Wyddfa can be seen, magnificent in all its moods, and visitors can watch the sun go down over the Island of Anglesey/Ynys Mon from the windows of the oak framed gable end.
The natural beauty and character of the old cottage has been maintained and gives a rustic feel. The thick stone walls are lime plastered; the floors are of slate and wood. The roof has been restored using the original random slates. It features an open plan "crog" loft (mezzanine floor) sleeping area, which is supported on an oak cruck frame. By peeping over the edge of the loft you can see the embers of the wood stove downstairs as you tuck into bed!
Access to local facilities in the village of Llanrug is easy. There are two local late night supermarkets, a renowned butcher which has a delicatessen and small cafe, and a chip shop, five minutes away in the car. There are two pubs in the village, one of which, the Glyntwrog, has good reviews for pub meals on trip advisor.
It is an ideal base for two people to come and relax, and have adventures, in this beautiful part of North Wales.
