Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, mountain views, easy access to many atractions.

This is a property of great distinction with its foundations set in history over 300 years ago. Established as a quarry mans ale house, then called the Ship Inn. From horse draw delivery of slate to the exporting ships on the coast, up until steam train delivery ceasing in the 1960's this property remained set up as a place for hard working men to take refreshment. Improved and lovingly maintained by myself it is now a romantic character cottage, retaining all of its original features. The inglenook fire place blends in with slate topped kitchen units and cosy bedrooms, with toilet and shower upstairs and luxurious bathroom on the ground floor in where the ale used to be kept. Through the rear windows the summit of Snowdon is in majestic view as it is from the decked area at the side of Ship. There is a large parking area to the rear of the cottage and a lock up shed to hold bicycles and canoes. Activity holidays are encouraged although not obligarory as it is a brilliant place to come and relax. Shops are available within walking distance as to are local Inns and eating houses. The village of Llanrug is predominantly Welsh speaking and they are just waiting to say croeso y cymru.

Fantastic cottage in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Basil the owner was on site to meet us on arrival, his attention to detail really shows and the cottage was spotlessly clean.

Basil lives nearby so if you have any problems it’s easy to contact him.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this property, it’s in a perfect location and very peaceful.

Thanks Basil, keep up the excellent work.

Gorgeous cottage, friendly host, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Basil and his wife have really thought of everything, homely cottage, so well equipped and beautiful. Lovely walks with views of Snowdon on the doorstep, and fabulous food in the Glyntwrog pub. Went with my daughter who is at Bangor university and we had a lovely peaceful break. Wonderful quality of the cottage and everything in it, Basil lives nearby in a chalet on the river, very laid back and friendly. Real fire all made up ready for our arrival, so kind. Happily return there any time, loved it.
