Overview

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. Friday Changeover day preferred..

Fantastic Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is fantastic and is in a great location for exploring North Wales.

The cottage is clean and well maintained and great care has been taken to ensure that guests have an enjoyable stay.

The lounge is cosy and the wood-burner was lovely on a cold and damp evening.

The kitchen is wonderful although it did take us most of the week to get used to how the oven cooked the food. There is a plentiful stock of equipment and crockery and a good selection of herbs and spices available to use as washing up liquid and washing powder for the washing machine. The welcome tray of treats was a lovely gesture and much appreciated. There are speakers in the kitchen that are connected to the music system in the lounge so it meant we could have music over dinner.

The bathroom is lovely, the towels were lovely and fluffy and the children loved using the jacuzzi bath. The only downside was that we couldn't control the temperature of the shower but this wasn't a major problem. It was great to have enough toilet roll to last the week.

The beds were really comfy and the duvets were warm. There was plenty of room to unpack things and lots of coat hangers in the wardbrobe.

We would highly recommend this cottage and would consider returning.

Return visit

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this wonderfully well equipped, comfortable cottage. On arrival we were greeted with a lovely tray of 'goodies' : cake, wine, nibbles and more, a good stock of logs for the wood burner as well as all the essentials such as toilet roll, washing up liquid, kitchen towel etc.

The owners of the cottage live next door so are on hand if you should have any problems ( we didn't) and are happy to advise on places to visit and things to do.

The kitchen is really well equipped. Loads of plates, glasses, cutlery, pots and pans everything you need for making meals. Should you want to eat out it's just a ten minute drive into Llanberis which has plenty of places to choose from.

The weather was fairly mild while we were there but on a couple of cooler evenings the wood burner ( which is extremely easy to light ) really warms the place up very quickly.

The bathroom is huge with a separate shower and a great jacuzzi bath, lovely thick fluffy towels and the water is always piping hot.

It's a great base for exploring beautiful Snowdonia. Anglesey is just a short drive away and there are plenty of beaches within easy reach.

Karen has left several little notes around the house which explain how to use things such as the boiler, the log burner, jacuzzi bath etc which are very useful.

This really is a home from home. Comfortable, warm, well equipped and in a great location. We will most definitely return.

Perfect cottage

  • 5 of 5

Awyr Mawr " Quarryman's cottage" was a great place to stay while visiting Snowdonia for the Llanberis Mountain. Craig & Karen are a lovely couple & work hard to keep this cottage cosy & homely. The kitchen is amazing, you'll find it difficult to fault, there's everything you need. Washing machine, tumble dryer, fridge freezer & a huge table & chairs. There's a microwave, toaster, oven/hob to cook your meals. The cosy living room has a tv/dvd & cd player also with log burner, sofa & arm chair. Plenty of games & books if the weathers not good for walking. Open stairs to a large bedroom with a really comfortable king bed. Also a twin bedroom. The bathroom is huge & modern with a walkin shower & jacuzzi bath which is great. A small patio with 4 chairs & a table is big enough to sit & drink wine.

Wonderful base for exploring Snowdonia

  • 5 of 5

A lovely warm, cosy, well equipped cottage in a perfect location for walking and exploring Snowdonia.

I stayed here for a week with my family during the Easter holidays. We were greeted by a gorgeous lit fire when we arrived, a tray full of goodies and a personalised note telling us all we needed to know. The house was spotlessly clean and everything we needed was provided. The framed map at the bottom of the stairs is a great idea for getting your bearings and some great walks can be taken straight from the front door.

We have been visiting this area for many years now and have never run out of things to do! We shall definitely be returning to this 'fabulous quarryman's cottage'

A great cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to find Awyr Mawr when we searched for somewhere to stay while visiting Snowdonia for the Llanberis Mountain Film Festival ; it really is a cosy and comfortable cottage and well located in a peaceful situation with walks from the door. It's site description is completely accurate - much thought and care has gone into providing the facilities for a quality stay and a roaring fire greeted us. The welcome treats were extremely generous and included home made damson jam, wine and some glorious golden daffodils. We managed a walk most days despite variable weather and just missed the Aurora Borealis over Anglesey ( views from the front bedroom window) . Pen Ceunant Isaf with it's host Stefan has to be the quirkiest and friendliest cafe ever at the start of the Snowdon Path from Llanberis , and Lodge Dinorwig , 20 minutes walk from the cottage, provides the best burgers we have ever had. Thank you Karen and Craig for a great week's stay in your lovely cottage. Anne & John

Home from home!

  • 5 of 5

Just arrived back from a 3night stay with friends. What a cosy little place this is - spotlessly clean and made even more welcoming by Karen's gifts of cake and flowers (and other extras too). We had a wonderful time exploring beaches, towns and mountains - it really is central for everything. We didn't venture out for meals but cooked in the extremely well equipped kitchen and spent the rest evening chatting and listening to music (the speakers in the kitchen are great). One tip we could pass on to other guests is to arrange a supermarket delivery on your arrival - it saves so much time and means we had everything we needed from the start.

Happy holidays to future guests and a big thank you to Karen, the owner.
