A 17th century stone built cottage, in a quiet location adjoining the owners' home and set in four acres of garden and woodland just three miles from the little village of Tremadog.

Well furnished throughout, with an abundance of oak beams and rafters, a lovely exposed chimneybreast, fantastic slate floor and the original, steep and narrow wooden staircase with a 180 degree bend, this cottage is full of character. An ideal base for outdoor enthusiasts and close to a Sustrans cycle route, this is the perfect location for a romantic holiday, surrounded by wonderful mountains, valleys and lakes, and just 3 miles from the Welsh Highland Railway.


We booked this cottage 'blind' with no recommendations but are so glad we did! A quaint cottage, well equipped and dog friendly. Our dog loved it too! Looking forward to returning again in September. Thanks again it was just what we needed, piece and quiet with easy access to places we chose to visit.

Cefn Coch Isaf has a lot of character and is set in a beautiful if remote location, had the weather been kinder to us we would have enjoyed it even more.

Beautiful Holiday Cottage
When I called to arrange key collection I was advised of everything I needed to know, Very private cottage with beautiful views. The cottage was very well equipped, and very clean. The dog seemed to enjoy herself too :)

Lovely cottage retreat - very good but could be excellent!
Points to make this property excellent for us are as follows. 1. Access to the property is not allowed until 4pm although guests are requested to leave on their day of departure by 10am. 6 hours turnaround for a cottage of this size seems excessive. 2. It is not clear that bath towels are not supplied and that is something we would have expected given the high quality and cleanliness of the bedlinen. These a small points that could be easily addressed and would make this beautiful, very clean, well equipped cottage even better.

not bad
Instructions told us to turn up after 3pm we get a message not to turn up till after 4pm and they had still not finished cleaning house for next guest.The kitchen needs a cooker a 2 ring hob and microwave is not enough, Needs a mop and bucket in the wet room instead of having to use our towels to mop up. For winter months the heating is poor. We went out to buy hot water bottles and blankets.
