Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

2 bedrooms, beautiful bathroom, fabulous views across to Anglesey

A traditional quarryman’s cottage located just an 11 minutes drive from Llanberis and 18 minutes from Caernarfon. This beautiful cottage is set on the hill side with panoramic views across the Menai Straits to Anglesey beyond. An ideal location for those wanting to enjoy a variety of outdoor pursuits available within the local area and the superb scenery offered by the Snowdonia National Park and welsh coastline. The area hosts many outdoor events throughout the year and this cottage is in an ideal position to be close enough to join in or just enjoy the atmosphere.

The cottage combines the character of days gone by with contemporary facilities of the 21st century. The warm and cosy lounge has a feature fireplace with wood burning stove, ideal for a relaxing evening when the weather is cooler, or enjoy a meal around the large table in the modern and spacious, fully equipped kitchen dining room. Open sided, original stairs (fairly steep and with a safety gate at the top) lead to 2 bedrooms (1 double, 1 twin) and a large family sized bathroom complete with shower and whirlpool bath. To the rear of the property there is a secluded patio area with barbecue and seating area to enjoy a well-deserved evening meal or drink after a summer's day in Snowdonia.

Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage has everything you need for a stay in Snowdonia, including a fantastic jacuzzi bath for soaking away the aches after the 6 hour walk to and from the Snowdon summit. The kitchen is well equipped and the goodies on arrival are the best we have had in our years of holiday cottage rentals. Thanks again to the owners who live next door who made us so welcome.
