The accommodation is as follows:
The front door opens into a central hallway with coatracks, where outdoor footwear can be left.
From the hall, two doors open, and the staircase leads to the first floor.
Downstairs to your left is:
This room holds comfortable seating for 6 people which consists of a 3 seater sofa, 2 seater sofa, and armchair. There is a TV with Freesat, DVD and ipod dock, and a compact stereo. There are bookshelves which hold a selection of books, DVDs, and videos. There is an electric multi-fuel style stove in case of cooler summer evenings when you have turned the heating off. The room is furnished in warm neutral tones and has beautiful views to the mountains and estuary over the valley.
The right hand door from the hallway leads into:
This room contains a large family dining table in pine and red painted wood, and 6 matching chairs. There is also a dresser, which contains various games as well as table mats and so forth. A writing desk sits in the bay window. A hatch leads from the dining room into the kitchen. The views are also to the front over the valley, the estuary, and the mountains beyond.
The Rear Hall area, leading to the kitchen and utility room, is reached through the living room. A back door of great character leads out to the rear garden. (A Victorian lady once said she had had enough of reversing with her washing basket to shut the door, I reckon, and her husband came up with a solution... you'll see what I mean when you come to open it!) An understairs cupboard holds the vacuum cleaner, mop & bucket, and all sorts of other useful oddments.
The Kitchen has been fitted with classic maple style cabinets and contrasting worktops, and the floor is tiled. The fitted oven and hob are both electric.The kitchen contains a dishwasher, fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster, full complement of crockery, cutlery, glassware, cookware, pots and pans etc. The cushioned deep slate window seat is a great place to perch whilst cooking, or whilst watching someone else cook, with a nice glass of red....
The Utility Room has a run of worktop over a washing machine, tumble drier, freezer and vegetable trolley. The shelves hold various items such as food storage containers and oven to tableware. The central heating controller is also in here. The all important book of the house lives in a blackboard unit on the wall. The flooring is the original slate slabs.
Upstairs there is an L shaped Landing giving access to the three bedrooms and the bathroom.
The Master Bedroom is a cosy room graced by a king sized four poster bed. It also contains a wardrobe, chest of drawers, and bedside tables. The hangings and bedding are in soothing shades of blues, teals, and white. There is a TV with Freesat and video recorder. This bedroom has beautiful views over the mountains and estuary.
The Twin Room is also at the front of the house and shares the lovely views. As well as twin beds, there are a wardrobe, a chest of drawers and bedside table. The curtains and bedding are from Next in warm coffee shades.
The Bunk Room is at the rear of the house. It contains a set of sturdy, full single size, pine bunk beds from John Lewis as well as a wardrobe, shelves, and bedside table. The colour scheme is vibrant citrus shades. It looks out over the rear garden.
The Bathroom is also to the rear. It is a good size, and has a white suite, including a bath with a Mira Sport electric shower over it. There are also a toilet, a basin, and plenty of space for your toiletries.
Other Details about the Accommodation
There is electric heating throughout the house, included in your holiday price.
Bedding is also included, and beds will be made up ready for your arrival. All of the sheets, duvet covers and pillow cases are from Next's Luxury Percale range, which we find particularly smooth and comfortable. Duvets are Next's washable microfibre (the nearest feel to down that we've been able to find) in four poster and twin rooms, and four seasons hollofill in the bunk room. Pillows are a mixture of firmer synthetic and snuggly feather, one of each per bed; if you have a feather allergy please let us know when booking and we'll replace the feather ones with synthetics for you. Towels are not provided, but can be supplied at a supplement should you need them; please enquire at the time of booking.
Children's equipment - We have stair gates, a travel cot ( bring your own bedding, please) and a comfortable high chair; it you'd like to have any of these for your visit, please let us know in the "special requests" section of the booking form, and we'll get our caretaker to have them available for you when you arrive.
The garden is large and rambling, with decked and patio areas with seating, lawns and mature trees, and a wilder orchard area. As the house is set on the side of a hill, there are some steep drops, and children should be supervised. There's also a barbecue for warm summer evenings.
Access to the house is by your very own level crossing over the Ffestiniog steam railway! Park on the lane below the house, wherever you can find a space, and walk up the path – a partially stepped pathway made from sleepers and tarmac – crossing the railway en route. There are 51 steps in all, for those who would prefer to know exactly what they are dealing with! We regret that due to the path, the house is unsuitable for those who cannot manage a short walk uphill. However, once you are up it is gorgeous, and the views from the house make the walk up the path thoroughly worthwhile!
Pets - We are very sorry, but pets are not accepted.
No Smoking - Bron Gwynedd is a "no smoking" zone.
Altogether Bron Gwynedd is a really great place to stay; a place to have a holiday to remember.
