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!

The vast windows and large patio make the most of the lovely location. The house is beautiful inside and exceptionally well furnished - far nicer than the photo's show. The house was spotlessly clean when we arrived and the welcome pack was a nice touch. Ty Garth is an easy walk from both the shops and pubs of Porthmadog and the fantastic beaches around Borth-y-gest. There's loads to do within easy driving distance. We had a wonderful holiday here and really enjoyed the almost palatial space of Ty-Garth.

The house itself was extremely well appointed and had absolutely everything we needed. It was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and had a feel of luxury throughout. All 7 of us ate most meals at the house and there was an abundance of crockery and cooking wares to suit every style of dining. Also the quality of all the kitchen ware was much better than in most holiday lets we've encountered and the overall feel of the house was that of a home and not at all like a rental property. The only slight difficulty we found while on our holiday was that the on street parking was very limited and with 2 little ones in tow the 5 min walk to the (permit provided) car park made setting off for the day a bit of a task for loading the car for a day out. However, that did not stop us all having a wonderful time exploring north Wales. There was so much to do that suited all our three generation of ages and with such a variety of attractions we will definitely be coming back to Wales again because there's just not enough time to fit everything in, in only a week. We will without doubt be recommending north Wales to our friends and family as the ideal holiday destination and would direct them to Hafan Mor as the perfect place to stay. Our thanks too to Martin & Kim for keeping in touch and making sure everything went smoothly. We've had a wonderful time and hope to visit Hafan Mor again another year 😊

Snowdonia is only a short drive away, Abersoch & Black Rock Sands are within easy reach. The Accommodation was lovely, small & cosy cottage, loved all the features & fittings, our little dog Ellie loved the lake! The owners were incredibly welcoming & were always around if we needed them. Great Dog Friendly Holiday - Will be recommending to everyone & will hopefully return! Many Thanks Laura Barlow
