Snowdonia Lodge is tucked away from the world in a happily wild landscape, as well as being in the popular Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park. Hideaway Rarebits are all about uncovering hidden gems in remarkable places. If the bird’s-eye mountain views, wood fired hot tub and dreamy sunsets are not enough to qualify, add in plenty of contemporary eateries on the doorstep.
Aled and Katy’s carefully crafted smallholding embraces its responsibility to the landscape that makes it so special. Sustainability is in its very DNA, protecting this epic land is taken seriously, a place to reconnect under huge starry skies, sprinkled with a touch of luxury.
The Lodge sleeps up to four but is perfect for couples. Yes, it is an ancient, converted barn, complete with warm oak beams and flooring but the interiors are bright, accented with splashes of primary colour and a sleek glam kitchen. There is a super king bed in the master bedroom, and a sofa bed in the living area, with the second double offering a little privacy at the end of the garden path. Those thick stone walls and the wood burning stove make it a cosy place to be even when you can glimpse snow on the summit of Cader Idris. Outside there is a private garden with a BBQ, the hot tub, and views over the wildflower meadow.
A day out in nearby Aberdyfi, with its bustling cafés and pubs, is always tempting, but perhaps try unspoilt and quiet Broadwater, a short twenty-minute stroll along the river. Hire a bike, tire the dog out, or maybe just skim stones, but either way, Katy’s tips for her amazing secret spots will build adventures and make cherished memories. If you want to experience this magical place with larger groups of family and friends, ask about the glamping tipi in the three-acre meadow.
