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.

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.

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 ?

Owner's Response: Dear Holiday Visitors, We are so pleased you have been sufficiently satisfied with your holiday to award the cottage and its location with a five star rating. We have endeavoured to keep the cottage comfortable, homely and self sufficient for visitors to enjoy. Snowdonia is a wonderful area for families to walk in the mountains and indulge in any amount of action packed activities, or just sit and relax at the seaside surrounded by wonderful scenery. Kind Regards, Sheila Porter-Williams.

Wonderful spot. Comfortable cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed was in the cottage. The surroundings were spectacular.

We didn't like the rugs which moved about too much. Also the rug in the sitting room was dangerous as it wouldn't stay flat. I was worried all the time that one of us would trip on it.

The bird life was great. Some unusual ones and masses of very small ones.

The remote for the television was missing. We informed the caretaker.
