Aberdovey, Snowdonia National Park, North Wales, Wales
A winding road through the southern part of the Snowdonia National Park leads you into the Dovey Forest to a secluded longhouse called Maesywerngoch. A luxurious yet laidback holiday home, Maesywerngoch has no neighbouring properties.

'The location is very convenient for Snowdonia and the various activities and destinations available in Wales. We visited Surf Snowdonia and Bounce Below, which worked out perfectly to fill one day.' Alice June 2017

Whilst keeping elements of the longhouse's 300 year-old charm such as its original wood beams, slate floors and thick stone walls, we have completely restored and expanded Maesywerngoch to include 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and spacious common areas.

Accompanying the longhouse are several acres of lovingly maintained gardens with streams, ponds, footbridges and waterfalls. Enjoy...

Maesywerngoch is a thoroughly relaxing and spacious home in an idyllic setting. It is secluded but all the comforts you require- space to chill, relax, socialise, snuggle and indulge. Be prepared for an adventurous road trip to get there and then gasp at the location, the quiet, the views and the garden. Keep it a secret. Even the dog has...

The house is situated up a 3 mile loggers track and you really feel like you are getting away from it all. We were celebrating a 40th birthday with a number of generations of the family and did not feel that we had to keep quiet as the nearest neighbour is miles away. The house is truly stunning and a...
