Nestled in magnificent Snowdonia is our 1950's home. It's only a stroll away from Portmeirion (perfect location for wedding guests), less than 2 miles from harbour town Porthmadog and is surrounded by mountains, seasides, castles, woodlands and steam trains. You’ll love my place because of its cosy old Welsh feel and is ideally located for all activities and with it's relaxing surroundings. My place is good for couples, families (with kids) and small (well behaved!) groups.
2 Cae Eithin has been in our family since it was built and therefore holds a special place in our hearts. It still has many original features such as a cast iron bath, wooden floorboards and a traditional fireplace. With selective furniture and decor of the 1960's it is true to its originality.
Having no gas mains here in Minffordd the house is all electric and fitted with storage heaters throughout. There are a couple of portable heaters here if required. The sitting room does have an electric fire that you can put on.
With a well equipped kitchen, cooker, fridge and microwave you can cook that favourite meal and then dine 'al fresco' on a warm summer evening on the patio overlooking the lawn and catching the last rays of the setting sun.
In the cosy sitting room after a busy day what could be nicer than to bring out the board games! Or maybe snuggle up on the sofa and read one of the many available books . The bright and spacious bathroom has the original cast iron bath with bullet taps, sink and toilet with the added luxury of an .electric shower over the bath. The master bedroom has 2 singles that I can push together to make a king size bed, overlooks the back garden and catches the setting sun. The front bedroom has 2 sumptuous single beds and decorated with 60's style wallpaper . With the third bedroom being the smallest of the three, has a single bed and funky sixties bedlinen and curtains! With the freedom of no Wi fi or TV, 2 Cae Eithin is a sanctuary and will give you respite from your very busy lives.
Retreat from the hurly burley in cosy 2 Cae Eithin. With access to the whole house, 2 living spaces, kitchen, bathroom and 3 bedrooms ( plus a downstairs loo!) and private garden you can relax and re-couperate after your very busy day exploring our wonderful Wales!
