A Grade II listed cottage overlooking a famous Gwynedd castle has gone up for sale. Bryn Tirion is set to go under the hammer with a guide price of just £30,000, making it potentially one of the cheapest properties on sale in North Wales.

The historic cottage, which was built in 1841, is located towards the top of Harlech, overlooking the town's famous medieval tower by Stryd Fawr. It is billed by Tom Parry estate agents as "most unusual and quirky property to come on the market" in the town.

The listing goes on to say: "Bryn Tirion is a quaint, compact gem and a wonderful opportunity to be creative from a blank-canvas. Perhaps you are looking for the chance to purchase a unique holiday let in "shepherd's hut" style - here it is.

"Or the most unusual little workplace? Or perhaps the space to unwind and re charge your batteries away from everyday life.... Bryn Tirion could be many things to many people.... what will you do with it?"

The Grade II listed cottage dates back to 1841

Set against the hill slope at the junction between Pen Dref and a lane leading to Rehoboth chapel, the cottage was re-roofed with a town scheme grant in the late 1990s, according to Cadw. However, it still needs a lot of work as it is essentially just a shell of a cottage.

Most of the second storey has disintegrated along with the inner walls. While it "could be many things to many people" as the estate agents say, based on the pictures in the listing, it will be a big project for whoever eventually snaps it up.
