Hi Julia - how lovely to read your report! It is always such a joy to know that young people continue to really enjoy that lovely place! It makes me even prouder of my dear father that some sixty years ago began to restore that Magic Mountain Cottage to the place it is now in so many hearts! All the best John

Such a beautiful place. We left the city on Friday night and the drive down to it was just magical. Then waking up on Saturday, walking up the field to the view. Just wonderful. The house was so warm and cosy, especially when it snowed, and our host was marvellously kind. We…

Hi Kenny, So very glad that you had such a good time at the cottage - parrticularly in view of the fact that because of he snow, at first, you couldn't get away. I do hope you'll return to Cyfabnnedd Fach at a time of year when the sun shines and there's no snow. All the best John

This was a truly unique stay. If you want to get away from it all and take in the beauty that Snowdonia has to offer then John's place is for you. We climbed a local mountain with our 8 and 10 year old, flew a kite on the beach at Barmouth and clambered around the local lakes and…

Hi Gerald, Thank you for that note about the light fitting. Actually I feel ashamed as my daughter stayed there prior to you and she told me that the light had gone the morning that they left and I forgot to do anything bout it ! Sorry. Glad you had a good stay there again. John

This is a remarkable place to escape modern life. The nearest house is a farmhouse, around 500m away. Note that road up to the cottage is narrow and there are around 6-8 gates to open and close (keepi…

Getting around

You will definitely need your own transport! The road is passable with a normal car. Occasionally after heavy rain it can get muddy, but it's usually easy to drive and park next to the cottage.
