about the property

The finest holiday cottage in Snowdonia? This traditional Snowdonia mountain holiday cottage at Penmachno has a cool interior and quality that is rare in Welsh holiday cottages. Great views, plenty of land and the perfect location in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park.

Blaen-y-Buarth is a fabulously stylish yet traditional cottage in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park. High above the remote Machno valley, it boasts innovative use of local slate. An interior warmed by vintage and modern Welsh wool with underfloor heating throughout. Already featured in BBC1 Empty Homes series and S4C 's "Cartrefi Cefn Gwlad Cymru" (Welsh Rural Homes) it has been acclaimed for its "honest and modern approach to conservation ". Despite the delights inside, eyes are invariably drawn to the mountain views which appear at every window. The good sized garden welcomes with a firepit, chill-out seat, swing and hut to store your mountain bikes and boots. Located in its own 7 acres and accessed by a private lane it is still within walking distance of the local pub and only 4 miles from Betws- y- Coed. Number 3 in the Sunday Telegraph's Best Spring Walks list.

The call of the mountains and castle rich landscape ensure you will want to return again and again....

We stayed at Blaen Y Buarth from 12th-15th May for our wedding anniversary and from the moment we arrived to the moment we left it was perfect. The cottage is beautiful, very cosy and well equipped. The view is out of this world and the pet sheep on our doorstep were so adorable. Having no wifi or phone signal was an absolute blessing. Each day was an adventure, from walking across random fields to mountain biking at Penmancho Trails and going on the coaster at Zip World in Betws y Coed we couldn't have asked for more. And to come back each evening to a chilled drink and wood-burning stove was utter perfection. Only thing we do regret is not having booked for longer but we will be back :)

Wow, what a fantastic place Blaen y Buarth is. The cottage is in a fantastic situation high up on a hill with great vistas looking west. Inside, the cottage had everything we needed, and I enjoyed some of the little touches, such as the coffee grinder being provided with fresh coffee beans, Thank you so much, we had a great stay.

This cottage is quiet and rural without feeling too isolated. The interior is simple with lovely materials. It has everything for a great getaway. It is close to the amazing Penmachno bike trails and Snowdon. We all had a good weekend, enhanced by the accommodation.

Wonderful cottage. Simple & stylish decor, warm throughout from the under floor heating and log burner and super comfortable beds. We loved the views of the hills and the lambs bleating outside the garden gate. Planning a return trip already.

What an amazing cottage, a welcome retreat from our normal busy lives! The views from every window were incredible and we loved the rustic and cosy charm. We are already planning our next holiday with UTT. Thank you very much!

We had such an amazing holiday we really want to go back. We fell in love with the cottage and the surrounding area. It was a magical break and our children didn't seem to miss the wi-if at all because they were too busy playing in the garden or doing one of the many brilliant activities which were on our door step.

We loved this cottage. You can really imagine what living here would have been like before the cottage was restored. Fantastic views. Remote and exposed, but very cosy inside. Nice big kitchen table for family meals. Comfortable beds. Lovely bathroom (loo with a view!). We did not use the TV after the first day - too much to do and see! Plenty of books and some games to keep us entertained by the log burner in the evenings. Without wifi we discovered that my 13-year old son actually has a personality!
