Make holiday rental accommodation or a holiday cottage in Snowdonia & Gwynedd in Wales your home away from home

The Welsh county of Gwynedd is the most north western county of Wales, bordering the Irish Sea, just below Anglesey. Known primarily for having the beautiful Snowdonia National Park at its heart, Gwynedd consists of an enchanting landscape of mist covered mountains, cascading rivers and wild moor land fringed by thick forests, and guarded by fairytale castles. Once you have taken a holiday cottage in Snowdonia or Gwynedd, tasted the lifestyle and experienced the relaxing pace of life, magnificent scenery and glorious sandy beaches, you will be tempted to return year after year.

Things to do in Gwynedd-Snowdonia, Wales

The Snowdonia National Park is one of the most breathtaking places in Britain. Taking a self catering holiday cottage or even a log cabin in Snowdonia lets you explore the largest mountains in England and Wales, as well as the beautiful beaches of the Cambrian Coast. The wooded valleys, wild moors, peaceful lakes and long mountain ridges make the perfect setting for walking and cycling. There are marked cycle routes through much of the Snowdonia National Park, and sailing on one of the magnificent mountain lakes is an ideal way to let the stress simply wash from your body. Snowdonia walk, riding and cycle trail information can be found at the many Snowdonia tourist information offices located around the park’s perimeter, and there are plenty of excellent Gwynedd public houses in which to retreat to after a hard day in the hills.

Although Gwynedd doesn’t instantly spring to mind as a beach holiday destination but it is exactly that. The whole of the Cambrian Coast is lined with golden sand, and during the summer, resorts like Barmouth become awash with holiday makers, many of whom are staying in Snowdonia accommodation, just a few miles away. Alternatively, if you rent a self catering holiday cottage in Snowdonia National Park, the windswept, secluded beaches of Porth Neigwl are within easy range.

Gwynedd golf has become a major business, with 19 full 18 hole golf courses dotted around the county, mainly on the coastal stretches. There is a choice between old, classic golf courses and the new, luxury Gwynedd golf courses which have recently appeared. Either way, if you are staying in Gwynedd or Snowdonia accommodation, you can certainly get a round in!

                                                                                                      We recently had a two weeks' stay at Bodfan - 12 of us for part of the time, spread over three generations - and the house accommodated us extremely well. We never felt on top of each other as there are several rooms and places in which to sit or be. The spacious kitchen coped with our large number admirably and we did not feel on top of each other. The children's bedroom with TV and toys on the first floor proved to be a great facility. On arrival the house was very clean and tidy and was as described in the accommodation details. The terrace at the back is large with enough dining seating for 12. The small, contained grassed area is great to sit in or for children to safely play in. We parked several cars round the back of the house. Bodfan has been nicely modernised, it is light and attractively furnished and has all you need for a great family holiday. The kitchen is very well knitted out and easy to use. The bedrooms on the second floor are really very nice; white paint, neutral walls and blinds and somehow very restful. I enjoyed sleeping in the twin bedded room and one of my grand-daughters came up and joined me as she liked it up there too. I have been going to Nefyn for 58 years so I may be a bit biased but it is a wonderful place to holiday if you like being active. Bodfan is very well placed as you are five minutes walk from Morfa Nefyn beach - and about 20 minutes' walk from Porthdinllaen one way and Nefyn beach the other. We had one week of sunshine, the second was grey and a little wet at times but we enjoyed them both. There is a lot you can do if you like being outdoors and Bodfan is a great place to go back to at the end of the day. The Morfa Nefyn shops are great and you can get all you need locally. Helen, the owner, was very helpful and quick to respond. I recommend Bodfan wholeheartedly and would book it again.

As others have stated, the photos don't do it justice. The cottage had everything that we needed and more, and is in a stunning location for fantastic walks. Sam has thought of everything and our children were delighted with the extras just for them. We would highly recommend this property and hope to return ourselves.
