As you stand on the roadside purely to admire this immaculate cottage with its whitewashed walls, something which is emphasised all the more when the sun re-appears from behind a cloud, there's no denying that Minffordd is a little gem situated within the rural village of Llanengan, being just one mile from the fabulous beach at Porth Neigwl (Hell's Mouth) and just a short stroll from the traditional village Inn. Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the surrounding rugged coastal countryside will undoubtedly delight.
It's these whitewashed elevations that really catch your eye, contrasting with its pleasant green surroundings, and that oak front door, well it just looks so inviting! So let's delve inside and explore what Minffordd has to offer. This is a two storey cottage believed to have offered just one room in the distant past, where the ceiling would have reached into the rafters.
Minffordd has been meticulously restored, maintained and upgraded by the present owner to a very pleasing standard whilst preserving its originality.
The large principal reception room has a character beamed ceiling, a lovely inglenook fireplace and provides spacious open plan seating and separate dining area.
The fireplace houses a large 'Villager' multi-fuel stove providing efficient heating together with supplementary modern programmable heaters throughout the property. The windows throughout have been replaced with 'in-keeping' uPVC units. The kitchen is fitted with built-in oven, hob, fridge and freezer together with a large freestanding unit. Dual aspect windows overlook the delightful garden and far sea views of hells mouth.
The ground floor shower room is fitted with a contemporary suite together with additional storage space. The spacious bedroom to the first floor offers the same character beamed ceiling leading through to a second bedroom, currently used as a dressing room, but easily converted back to form the original second bedroom as it has its own entrance from the stairway.
Externally, the sloping lawned garden to the rear is populated with numerous fruit tees (apple and plum varieties), there's a gravelled seating area along the south westerly facing gable end and a neatly trimmed lawn to the front, planted with roses that will give that quintessential cottage look and feel when in bloom!
If peace and tranquillity are what you crave then this cottage might just do the trick. As a weekend retreat or as authentic Welsh holiday accommodation, you can't go far wrong. Much of the furnishings are available by negotiation, essentially making Minffordd habitable from the word go.
As touched on earlier, just a short stroll away is a reputable pub which serves meals, there's the fabulous Porth Neigwl Beach nearby and you can even traverse the local countryside by exploring the many footpaths which criss-cross these parts. The celebrated coastal village of Abersoch can cater for your daily needs and is a hive of activity during the summer months.
