The cottage occupies a neighbouring site to that of St Beuno’s parish church. The site is said to be that of a Celtic monastery founded by Beuno in the early 7th century that was later pillaged and burnt by both the Vikings and the Normans. The church was an important site for pilgrims and contains Cyff Beuno, an ancient wooden chest hollowed out of a single piece of ash and used to keep alms given by the pilgrims. The church is a major location on the North Wales Pilgrims Trail.
Last but not least, the highest peak in Wales, 'Mount Snowdon', is a short drive away with breath-taking walks or its own railway if you prefer to sit back and relax to the top.
