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.

Lovely, clean cottage

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay in this clean cottage which has everything you will need and is very comfortable. The single track road (with passing spaces) is pretty quiet so didn't meet many people on our drive up and down each day. Good location for exploring the whole of the Snowdonia area.

Owner's Response: Dear Visitors, We thank you for your feedback about the comfortable, self contained aspects of the cottage and its excellent location for discovering the most beautiful parts of the Snowdonian range of mountains and scenic coastal bays, sandy beaches, glorious estuaries and popular seasides, famous for the ancient monuments and stone castles. We will continue to strive to make our guests feel welcome and to enjoy a memorable holiday experience. Kind Regards Sheila Porter-Williams

Cosy cottage & spectacular scenery

  • 3 of 5

Had a great week - easy to explore this part of North Wales from but also off the beaten track. Cottage cosy and well equipped for four people to stay in. No internet or phone connection which was brilliant - really felt we got away from every day life and that was just what we were looking for. Ideal base for walkers and nature lovers.

Pleasant but tired

  • 3 of 5

We were upset that no mention was made of the very late arrival time ( 5pm ) until after we paid. We booked for 7 days and nights but potentially lost 7 hrs with having to leave by 10 a.m. I don't have a problem with the leaving time as the property has to be cleaned between visitors but 7 hrs.cleaning time ?

The property is excellently placed for anyone, the walks ' on the doorstep ' are plentiful and the scenery is stunning.

The peace and quiet of Croesor is amazing

For the rental charged, the furniture and carpets are quite 'tired'

No wi-fi and no phone reception ?

No bedding and no towels provided ?

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
