4-bed cottage with 1 acre (sts) + detached annexe with garage, all in lovely woodland setting; Llanbedr, Gwynedd, Snowdonia National Park
Enjoy a taste of the 'Good Life' and escape to the country. Bryn Derwen is not simply a delightful 4 bedroom property nestled in a rural, woodland setting and grounds of about an acre (sts), including rambling cottage gardens and an attached paddock. There is stabling and the possibility of an income from the detached self-contained 2 bedroom stone annexe with a garage below. Another adjacent field is also available to rent giving extra potential for a smallholding.
Bryn Derwen is situated approximately 1 mile from the village centre in a picturesque hamlet of stone built houses and cottages close to the Afon Artro river and Coed Artro woodland. Further up the lane there are the spectacular beauty spots of Cwm Bychan and Cwm Nantcol waterfalls and village amenities are within approximately 20 minutes walk.
Llanbedr is a small village with a population of about 500 situated on the western coastal fringe of the Snowdonia National Park. It has a thriving community and is located on the picturesque Afon Artro River between the Rhinog Mountains and magnificent beaches of Cardigan Bay. The village is served by a variety of shops including newsagent, butchers, delicatessen and Post Office. There are two pubs, Country House hotels, popular primary school, a regular bus service and a rail link along the Cambrian Coastline to local towns and the Midlands.
Welsh has been the principal language in Llanbedr for hundreds of years and is the first language of many local families. It is therefore very much part of every day life around the area and is heard and seen on a daily basis. The use of Welsh is actively promoted by a very successful bilingual Welsh and English education system that the local school children all benefit from. Information about how to learn Welsh can be found on Sanderson Estate Agents' web site or by contacting their office. A wider range of shopping and recreational amenities can be found in the nearby harbour town of Barmouth, 7 miles away.

The field/paddock is over half an acre and lies to the northern side of the house, adjacent to the Annexe, Garage and Stable and bordering pasture land with stock- proof boundaries. An area of the paddock has been fenced off to provide ample off-road car parking. There is also gated vehicular access in to the paddock. A further field next to this paddock can be rented from the current owner.
The well tended gardens have been thoughtfully landscaped in a 'cottage garden' style. The main garden lies to the front of the property and enjoys a favourable southerly aspect. There is an area of lawn as well as mature trees, shrubs, flower borders and a terrace - perfect for taking breakfast.
Meandering pathways and stone steps lead down the hillside to a tiered garden area, with the lower garden fronting the Cwm Bychan road and the river Artro beyond. A further lawned area with hedged boundary and a public footpath leads up the side of the garden near the adjacent chapel. Features include natural rock formations, covered archways, several Oak trees and dry stone walling by the public footpath and paddock. Don't forget the flag pole which signals whether one is in residence! There is a rear courtyard to the west of the house with slate flag stones, oil tank, storage shed, outside tap and garden store with plumbing for washing machine.
