The narrow galley kitchen is fitted with a sink, four-ring gas stove with grill and oven, and fridge with freezer compartment.

From its low slung window, the kitchen offers one of the best views down the estuary, making the task of washing-up a treat…..well nearly.

The kitchen cabinet carcass is one of very few structures surviving from the original build, although the original work-surface and cabinet doors were lost. The cabinet shelves have been rebuilt in spalted oak, and tragically, these simple yet lovely bits of wood are lost beneath the storage practicalities of the kitchen. Be sure to notice them when you pull a box out.

The pan-rest next to the stove and the handled chopping board are also both oak, with the inset slate tile coming from the Craig y Tan quarry near Trawsfynydd. The top shelf is a slab of Japanese larch milled from thinnings taken from Coed Dysynni on the opposite side of Cader Idris.

The rooster painting is an original by Margaret O’Hanlon.
