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

Ship Cottage, in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales,is truly a gem of a holiday rental. Whether the visitor wishes to climb, walk, drive, or simply escape for some much-needed rest and recuperation, this delightful cottage provides the perfect base. Would make a brilliant honeymoon stay after all the hassle of a wedding!
The exterior of the cottage and grounds remind you of yesteryear with its stone built facade and dry-stone walling. Whilst the interior maintains the historic ambience, it also provides all the bang-up-to-date mod cons that one would expect in one's own home. An added bonus is that the cottage has been lovingly restored by Basil, the owner, a welcoming and caring host. It is not just an empty house, anyone choosing this would immediately feel at home, and I would not hesitate to recommend Ship Cottage as the perfect holiday rental,
Fantastic cottage in a great location.
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.
Lovely cottage. Friendly, helpful host.
Gorgeous cottage, friendly host, beautiful location
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.
