A one bedroom cottage has gone on sale with an eye-watering price tag of £385,000.

Lloft y Crog, in Brithdir, near the outskirts of Dolgellau, is for “Holiday Use Only” according to the “key features” in its listing on the property website, Rightmove.

This is despite a housing crisis engulfing rural Wales, in which many local people are struggling to get on the housing ladder.

According to the description, the “property is not available for full time residency” and “it provides a business opportunity for any investor”.

It also says that the property has been “assessed by a holiday let company”, which has informed the “vendors” that it could generate “£240 per night”.

Other “key features” listed on the property website include a “Remote Forest Location” and a “Historic Grade II Listed Roman Bridge”.

This is the reality of 21st-Century Cymru. The Welsh property market needs radical surgery through changes in Welsh law.

The situation is chronically bad now and has to change. £385k for a 1 bedroom where do they think they are central London instead one of the poorest areas in Europe? What hope for our children in getting on the housing market – none. It’s just greed. I agree with Grayham – no more second homes in Wales before it is too late.
