Hidden gem in a lovely local village

  • 5 of 5

Such an enjoyable stay. The cottage felt very homey and was stocked with everything you could need/want. The location was convenient yet still felt secluded and tucked away. Wi-Fi was a pleasant surprise. The Cnicht hiking path was only a short walk away from our doorstep and made for an excellent mountain adventure. Lovely pub called the Brondanw Arms just a few mins from the cottage was great too. Parking space in front of the cottage was really tight to squeeze into- definitely would not recommend parking there if you have a large vehicle. More parking was available just down the road. The pictures do not do this place justice...although, I think I'd prefer it to stay a "hidden gem" as we definitely want to keep it a secret spot to come back to!

Owner's Response: Dear Visitors, Thank you for your glowing response to the location and convenience of the cottage. We think it is a wonderful Welsh valley hidden away and surrounded by mountains. It's a village on an ancient cross roads that has beautiful walks which ever direction one chooses to ramble. There are hidden water falls , old slate quarries, lakes, fast flowing streams, high mountains and on the horizon there is a glimpse of the sea wall called the cob and the sands of Porthmadog. We look forward to your visit in the near future. Kind Regards Sheila Porter-Williams.

Clean tidy comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is clean and welcoming. Only downside is we booked for 5 upon arrival u was pleased our 18 year old son decided to stay home as theres only seating for 4 in living and dining room. The coal fire was amazing and easy to light. Beds are comfortable slept well and views from windows are stunning.

Owner's Response: Dear Visitors, We are pleased you enjoyed your holiday at the cottage in the Welsh mountains, it's so wonderful to be in a snug home and travel back in time to an old fashioned Christmas, roasting chestnuts on an open fire, singing Carols and walking in a winter wonderland in the silent rugged countryside.

Wonderful cosy stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights in the cottage in late November. It was really cosy coming back after a days walking to light the fire. The cottage was very well equipped - everything we could have wanted- and it is in a delightful quiet village with access to good walking from the doorstep. Portmadog is just a 10 minute drive away for shopping and seaside. We hope to return soon.

Car: recommended

Croesor is the starting point for climbing Cnicht, a pyramid shaped mountain, and the Moelwyn mountain range. Sarn Helen, a Roman road, goes north west to Beddgelert through Nantmor and the Aberglaslyn Pass, and south east over the shoulder of the Moelwyns to Tan-y-Bwlch and the narrow gauge Ffestiniog Railway, with steam trains to Porthmadog and Blaenau Ffestiniog. The garden at Plas Brondanw (less than 2 miles away) is open to the public; this was the home of Clough Williams-Ellis, the architect of Port Merion, which is 5 miles away. A short drive away are the beach at Morfa Bwchan (Black Roack Sands), castles including Criccieth, Harlech and Caernarfon, slate quarries at Blaenau Ffestiniog, a copper mine near Beddgelert and many other attractions.

Other Activities: White Water rafting and Kayaking
