Peaceful and quiet, nature and history

  • 5 out of 5
This was our first holiday in Wales. We enjoyed the beautiful surroundings, the walks around Croesor, the birds in the garden, the imposing castles near the coast (Caernarfon, Conwy, Harlech), the interesting history of the slate quarries (Llanberis, Blaenau Ffestiniog), the ice cream in Beddgelert. So much to see, so much to do; one week was really too short! And at the end of a busy day it was very nice to return to a cosy cottage in a peaceful and quiet location, where nature and history are combined.

Little cottage, amazing location

  • 5 out of 5
We returned to this little cottage, in such a big setting, every year since we first discovered it. The cottage is always a welcome sight and the valley is just the most beautiful and peaceful spot you could ever wish for. With lots of walks from the doorstep some very steep, others flat and some never ending, you have to love the countryside to get the most from Croesor. If it rains, light the fire snuggle down and relax on the very comfy sofas. If the sun shines head to the beaches. We stand on the path look towards the coast and head in the direction of the blue sky. If you are lucky there is a very cold swimming pool in the village. My children always need their wet suits on, but if its filled you can have a lovely time just staying put. Whilst your other half climbs all the mountains he can see!

Owner's Response: Dear Helen L

Thank you for your glowing review. I think the cottage is in a spectacular location, as you do
and when the weather is good the amount of activities is huge, as you say, there is mountains,
rivers, streams and seaside with wonderful miles of golden beaches. In a very few miles you have all that nature can offer. Croesor village has most of what people love on holiday. If the weather is dull then you can stay in the cottage and have a roaring fire.

Beautiful Christmas hide away

  • 5 out of 5
The cottage was perfect for our cosy Christmas get away. We loved exploring the local area and then coming back to the cottage to get a fire roaring and the kettle on for a brew. We perched our little Christmas tree on the windowsil of the lounge and watched some soppy Christmas telly and DVDs, though the player also takes blu-ray.
The new kitchen was wonderful and cooking a full Christmas dinner in it was a treat. There is only a small freezer box above the fridge, so try to avoid bringing any frozen food.
We have said that we shall definitely be returning and are already looking forward to it. We have also recommended this cottage to family and friends.

Owner's Response: We are delighted you found the cottage comfortable and ideal for a winter holiday.
Christmas can be a wonderful time to be in the mountains wild and free. It can be an unforgettable experience to walk by the sea in December and
walk the wide sandy beaches so close to this part of Snowdonia.

Feed back is important to us because we are dedicated to giving our visitors the best holiday
we can offer.

Kind Regards

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 out of 5
This cottage is absolutely perfect! It is in such a secluded location and is absolutely wonderful.
Me and 3 other girls went, and we are all in our early 20s, and we thought it was brilliant, we spent the weekend walking and playing games snuggled up in the cottage.
The cafe in the village is wonderful as well, serves fantastic breakfasts, and you have to buy some welsh-cakes, when we left we brought every welsh-cake they had in the shop to take home!
I would recommend this to anyone of any age who wants to escape a busy life and enjoy the beautiful countryside and peacefulness that this place has to offer!
Thank you!!

Croesor is the starting point for climbing Cnicht, a pyramid shaped mountain, and the Moelwyn mountain range. Sarn Helen, a Roman road, goes north west to Beddgelert through Nantmor and the Aberglaslyn Pass, and south east over the shoulder of the Moelwyns to Tan-y-Bwlch and the narrow gauge Ffestiniog Railway, with steam trains to Porthmadog and Blaenau Ffestiniog. The garden at Plas Brondanw (less than 2 miles away) is open to the public; this was the home of Clough Williams-Ellis, the architect of Port Merion, which is 5 miles away. A short drive away are the beach at Morfa Bwchan (Black Roack Sands), castles including Criccieth, Harlech and Caernarfon, slate quarries at Blaenau Ffestiniog, a copper mine near Beddgelert and many other attractions.

Other Activities: White Water rafting and Kayaking
