About the property

Croesor Bach - a house that sleeps 9 guests in 4 bedrooms

Welcome to Croesor Bach, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages.



Please click More Details to read about the House Rules.

Croesor Bach is a traditional, detached farmhouse, with its own garden, serenely positioned at the top of a valley, within the stunning Snowdonia National Park. Despite its tranquil location, a wide range of activities are within easy reach of the house, including mountains, beaches, castles, towns and pretty villages.

The house is built from traditional Welsh materials and has been beautifully decorated and furnished, with many character features, including wooden beams, whitewashed stone walls, a grand Stanley range cooker in the kitchen, and a large inglenook fireplace with a real fire and a bread oven in the living room. Complementing these character features, the cottage has modern facilities, including wireless internet access and Freesat HD TV.

Croesor Bach sleeps up to nine people, in four bedrooms, with one bathroom. The cottage is an ideal retreat for a large family holiday or for groups of friends seeking peace and solitude amongst stunning scenery, yet close to a wide range of activities.

House Rules

Booking and payment

Character Cottages is a marketing agency and we do not own or manage any of the cottages listed on our website. Bookings made via us form a legal agreement directly between you and the property owner.

For bookings commencing more than 10 weeks in advance, a 30% non-refundable deposit is required to confirm the booking. The balance payment is then due 10 weeks prior to arrival.

All payments are made subject to the cancellation policy set out in the standard Booking Conditions.

Security deposits

Security deposits are not required.


The maximum occupancy of the property is nine guests, at any point during your stay. Unauthorised over occupancy is a breach of our terms and conditions and may result in the cancellation of your booking and additional charges. Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than nine guests at the property.

Infants who sleep in a cot do not count towards the occupancy figure, however, due to space restrictions, the occupancy figure may only be exceeded by two additional infants.


Regrettably, pets are not accepted at Croesor Bach.

Bed linen and towels

Bed linen and bath mats are provided for guests, however, guests are requested to bring their own towels and tea towels.

Access, arrival and departure times

Arrival time at Croesor Bach is after 3pm and departure time is by 10am. Access is via a key safe, therefore it does not matter if you are arriving late at night.

The house is located in a peaceful location and requires two cattle gates to be manually opened and closed, en-route. Weather conditions can be unpredictable and there is no dedicated road lighting during the last few miles of the journey, therefore, a torch and an umbrella are strongly recommended. The final section of the road is on uneven gravel tracks and some sports cars may experience difficulty.

Bed sizes and configurations

Bedroom 1: Double bed

Bedroom 2: Double bed

Bedroom 3: Two single beds

Bedroom 4: Double bed and a single bed

Fuel and logs

A £100 oil deposit is payable directly to the owners prior to the commencement of the holiday. Upon departure, the owner will read the oil meter and the resultant charge will be deducted from the oil deposit. The balance will then be refunded within a week of the date of departure. Please note that this is a private arrangement between the owner and the guest, which does not involve Character Cottages.

Central to the operation of the house is the oil-fired range in the kitchen. Operating instructions are left for guests, the range being similar to an AGA but with central heating capability.

Electricity and gas are included in the letting price. The house is supplied by fresh spring water and is not connected to the mains water supply.

There is a fireplace in the sitting room and an initial supply of logs is provided; further logs are available locally.

Services provided

Croesor Bach has free wireless internet access, HD Freesat TV, DVD player, CD and iPod dock. A telephone is also provided, with an honesty box for the cost of calls made.

Croesor is in a valley and guests should be aware that mobile phone reception can be very poor.


Croesor has parking for four cars on its private drive.


Where a letting exceeds nine nights, a mid-stay clean, bed linen and towel change may be included in the price. Please check with us to confirm. Additional housekeeping services are available on request.

Child friendly facilities

Two travel cots (without linen) and two high chairs are provided.

Initial consumables

Due to the remoteness of the cottage, there are no initial consumables provided.

Accessibility, health and safety

Croesor Bach is a period property, and has character features, including relatively narrow and steep stairs, some low beams and two floors, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, or carrying babies, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to quickly exit the house in the event of an emergency.

The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.


No smoking is permitted throughout Croesor Bach.


In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas. If you have any queries regarding the size of any rooms or spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us.
