About the Cottage

THE INGLE is a gorgeous little 1 bedroom bolt hole and ideal for active outdoor couples.  Pet Free and Smoke free!  This coastal view cottage, ‘on The Rock’ in Barmouth really ticks all the boxes.  Sensational Sunsets, breath taking views over the glistening ocean, harbor, Mawddach estuary, with the Cader mountain range in the foreground.  Dating back from the 18th Century the former fisherman’s cottage is perched on “The Rock” - the historic conservation area where the quaint fascinating jumble of steps and terraces look out over the Estuary or down to the harbour below. Winding their way up the hill giving you a taste of what’s to come when you gaze out at the 180 degree view of the sea from the cottages’ sunny little terrace.

Miles of sweeping sandy beaches and stunning walks are just a stone’s throw from the cottage. As well as the stunning location, the cottage is only a 5 minutes’ walk to Barmouth town centre with its shops and good pubs/eateries.   The cottage is accessed via a path or the medieval stone steps off the main street near the harbour, so it’s not suitable for guests with mobility issues. The steps are not particularly steep and it only take a few minutes to walk up to the property, any reasonably active person, of any age will not have a problem.  There is no designated parking, but guests have a parking permit for the main car park 400m away at no extra cost to you.

With a full renovation at the end of 2016 “The Ingle” gives a modern contemporary feel, including central heating and mainly double glazing, but maintaining its rustic original charm. White washed walls, beams and the original slate floor sit alongside a modern kitchenette with combination oven, fridge and 2 ring ceramic hob.

In the open plan living area, there is a comfortable sofa (with the added benefit that it converts to a sofa bed.  We can accommodate one child for a £35 supplement ) which looks through the patio doors onto the patio area and out to sea, a small dining table and chairs, bookcase, radio with iPod docking, a smart TV with curved screen and freeview giving access to many channels, and of course free WIFI completes the lounge area.

Up the space saving stairs to the glass paneled landing leads to the small but very modern en-suite bathroom featuring a mains corner shower, toilet and basin. The bedroom has a double bed where in the morning you can enjoy coffee gazing through the window out to Cardigan Bay. A dressing table with drawers and mirror, bedside lamps and clothes hangers complete upstairs.

There is no doubt this is a small compact property but it offers all of the convenience needed with modern living, sharing a bottle of wine sitting on the terrace watching the sun set over the twinkling ocean right in front of you is simply magical.

Surrounded by The Snowdonia National Park, The Ingle is ideally situated for that getaway holiday.  With stunning coastal and inland walks, cycling, fishing, sea kayaking, coasteering, just lazing on the sandy beach, climbing the mountains of Snowdonia or just wandering down to some lovely pubs and restaurants, The Ingle is perfectly situated for you to enjoy.

"TripAdvisor Review Left on Oct 22, 2017 for a stay in Oct 2017 We stayed at The Ingle for the weekend and fell in love with this cute cottage instantly. For a couple who want to get away for a break but still be on the doorstep of all that Barmouth has to offer, then this is the place to be. The owners have thought of everything from the coffee machine, microwave oven, books to read, wi-fi, comfy bed and sweet little bathroom - it has all that you would need to thoroughly enjoy your stay. Accessed by steps, within minutes you are straight onto the high street with an abundance of coffee shops, pubs, restaurants and gift shops. With stunning views over the harbour and a patio to watch the world go by, we only wish we had stayed for longer. Arh well - we will just have to book to go back! Can't wait!

AirBNB Guest Review - October 2017

"Review of The Ingle - Bolt Hole on The Rock Gorgeous!! Trip Advisor Review 2017 I just have recently just stayed in Barmouth for a weekend and it was perfect, largely down to The Ingle. The apartment was extremely clean and beautifully decorated, although small in size, the space has been used extremely well. The kitchen area has all the facilities you would need and the living space is comfortable with a fold out sofa bed which is a bonus. The best part were the views from The Ingle. There is a great little Patio area at the front of the apartment where you can see the entire beach, the sea and The Fairbourne Railway. The patio also gets plenty of sunshine in the day. Even better, the same views can be seen from the bedroom of The Ingle which is the best thing to wake up to. Overall, I can't think of one negative about The Ingle. I will definitely be coming again and I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else! This review is the subjective opinion of a TripAdvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC."
