About the Cottage
Lounge Holidays is thrilled to offer, Afon Morfa an imposing family holiday home with a large swimming pool set in its own 10 acre grounds and enjoying an enviable rural location in the historic village of Arthog. It has 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and sleeps 10 guests in style. FREE WIFI of course!

Apart from its own woodland, meadow, stream and waterfall, there are miles of gorgeous walks and scenery to enjoy all around. The stunning Mawddach Estuary is opposite, facing Barmouth and the Cader Idris mountain area is just a short drive. Much of the 10 acres of grounds is wild woodland sloping steeply to the main road.

The pool is unheated, glorious on a sunny summer day. It is covered and out of use between mid-October and Easter.
