Call (01492) 530423 for more information
mur Goch is a stone built cottage set in a secluded location in the heart of
the beautiful Lledr Valley. A stream runs past the cottage and on through the
fifteen acres of land toward the Afon (River) Lledr. In spring time the rocky
outcrop is carpeted in wild blue bells below the sesile oak trees. The Lledr
river that runs alongside the lower field is home to many species of birds
including king-fishers, herons, wagtails, dippers and indeed the cottage itself
is ideal for bird spotting with buzzards and crows battling it out in the skies,
and swifts and swallows nesting in the eves. In winter time a five minute walk
to the top of "muddy
field" delivers fantastic views of Moel Siabod and the snow covered
hills of Snowdonia National Park. Anglers have access from the lower
field to the deep pool below the weir, where, if you are patient, you
might see the salmon leaping out of the water. (Fishing
licences are available from the Post Office in Dolwyddelan).
The cottage itself has recently been renovated and has two bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen and lounge. The kitchen is fully fitted with fridge / freezer, electric hob and oven, and ample storage cupboards. With stone walls of two foot thickness the house is warm in winter and cool in summer, and also benefits from gas central heating.

Dol mur Goch is in a beautiful location but we recommend that due to the proximity to the river Lledr children do not enter the lower field unless they are supervised at all times by responsible adults.
cottage is only a five minute drive down a lane off the A470.
No Car ? No Problem !
The cottage is a five minute walk from Pont y Pant railway station. One of the delightful Conwy Valley Line train stations. But don't forget to stick your hand out to stop the train!
Shopping could be a bit of a problem if you don't have a car but if you don't mind walking it's just a two mile walk (alongside the Lledr River) to the local Spar shop in the village of Dolwyddelan, or then again a short journey on the train.
