Cefn Cam is a family-owned holiday cottage overlooking the beautiful Mawddach Estuary in Wales. The perfect get-away-from-it-all destination, it is ideal for families or walkers. Week-long bookings are preferred.
Cefn Cam is a wonderful retreat and a much-loved, family-owned cottage. My parents bought it nearly 40 years ago and it has now passed to the next generation - myself and my three sisters. The cottage has a relaxed, home-from-home feel. The decor is rustic rather than five-star but comfortable and cosy, and it will sleep up to 10 or even 11, with extra mattresses for children up in the attic bedrooms.
With views of Cadair Idris and the surrounding mountains, it is well placed for walking holidays, and is within easy reach of Snowdon. There are superb mountain walks on the doorstep - you don't even have to get in the car. For mountain bikers, the cottage is only 15 minutes drive from the excellent Coed-y-Brenin mountain biking centre, and there's a bike hire shop in nearby Dollgellau.
The cottage has a large kitchen with dishwasher and wood burner, a utility room with a washing machine, downstairs shower room, a sitting room with open fire, plus a glass-fronted garden room with views down the estuary. Upstairs on the first floor there are two double bedrooms plus a family bathroom with bath and loo, and two attic bedrooms on the second floor with two beds in each, plus extra mattresses for kids. Please note that the second attic bedroom is only accessible through the first bedroom. There is a door between the two.
NB Families with very young children may be worried about the proximity of the estuary. A low wall separates the garden from the shore, and there is a gate. The cottage stairs are rather steep, so this is not an ideal house for toddlers.
The whole cottage is available to rent.
We don't live at the property, but we have a property manager who is nearby to deal with any problems should they arise.

Strictly no smoking, please. As this is a family cottage, please leave it as you found it, replacing loo-paper, soap, or anything that runs out. Cleaning and laundry are included in the price, but please leave the house tidy when you leave, and don't leave dirty plates in the dishwasher etc. If you are bringing a dog, please do not let them go upstairs or on the furniture.
