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!

                                                              Beautiful apartment overlooking Porthmadog harbour

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              We really enjoyed our week in this lovely apartment and our stay in Porthmadog. We especially loved the view of the harbour, the steam trains and the mountains in the background. When we didn’t want to drive, there were so many things within walking distance (the steam trains, lots of places to eat out, the Maritime Museum, shops, walks). It was also a good base for exploring the Llyn Peninsula and Portmeirion, and Harlech and Barmouth further south. The owner was very helpful and answered our questions promptly. We would definitely stay here again. Rosa and Dan

                                                              Lovely place to stay

                                                              Great property, nicely done inside. Very comfortable lounge and bedrooms. Fantastic use of space and renovated to a high spec. Log burner in lounge which wasn't needed in June but can imagine it would be nice and cosy on a cold night. Nice village and we were able to walk to the beach. Not to far to nearby town, managed to walk home after a night out. Lovely part of Wales and lots to do nearby. Lovely ice cream at Cadwaladers. Would recommend and visit again next time we are in Wales

                                                              Perfect little Beach house

                                                              Beautiful well maintained little house, everything you could possibly need for your holiday is provided. The interior decor is very stylish and clean. The views from the balcony are to die for, Large variety of sea birds and Dolphins by day, and fantastic views of the stars at night . wish I was still there.
