  • "Amazing week at this cottage."

    Needed a getaway after all the craziness of the previous 6 months. What can I say. Very well decorated and equipped. Garden is a perfect suntrap and after a day on the mountains you can just chill with an alcoholic beverage and admire the views. My wife and I fully enjoyed our stay and will be back. Ideally located to get into the mountains or if you fancy going to Anglesey etc. Owners very helpful and provide good communication for arrival. This property is a credit to them. Thanks.

  • "Beautiful cottage in beautiful surroundings ..."

    Beautiful cottage in beautiful surroundings Very comfortable and warm If I am going to find a negative it’s just the access road to the cottage which is extremely narrow Anyone with a larger vehicle would probably not get round the corner I think this should be made clearer on the description of the cottage But overall a very pleasant stay x

    Thank you for your feedback and I am glad you enjoyed your stay. The owners do have large vehicles themselves but acknowledge the turn can be a bit tight for those perhaps not used to it so we have added a note to this effect. Thanks again for your comments. Property Owner

  • "A great place to stay with everything you need provided."

    Clearly a lot of effort has gone into getting things just right and the little gifts on arrival were much appreciated. The location was great (although it takes a little getting use to to turn the narrow corner on the road down to the cottage) and it is close enough to Bangor to be able to pop in and out without issue. We will be back to stay again.

  • "An fantastic cottage in a brilliant location for exploring the local region."

    Situated at the end of a lane the property offers views over the stunning Welsh landscape. As a family of 4 we had more than enough room also the cottage was well equipped for dining and relaxing. 2 Ysholdy is perfect for a quiet retreat, but also great for local walks, the unspoilt beaches of Anglesey and local towns and cities. The property was spotlessly clean and the hosts were incredibly helpful. I would defiantly recommend a visit.

  • "Having never booked a holiday cottage before I wasn't entirely sure whether it would be as good as it stated but I have to say, I was most impressed."

    The listing was accurate and honest and the accommodation was even better than the photos implied! I was a bit unsure of the location at the time of booking as we were arriving by train to Bangor station and I was concerned whether we'd be limited as to where we could go but I was pleasantly surprised as there was a regular bus service that was exceptionally reliable. That said, I would take a car next time as we would have liked to explored more rural areas than we were able to but we had no problems in reaching the seaside towns of Llandudno and Colwyn Bay as well as getting to Canaerfon to pick up the West Highland Railway which took us through Snowdonia which was absolutely beautiful.

About the location


Bangor 6 miles; Caernarfon 10 miles.

Bethesda is a small town settled beside the River Ogwen in North Wales. Situated on the A5 between Bangor and the Snowdonia National Park, Bethesda was once a busy slate quarrying town and nowadays offers a good selection of shops and other amenities, in particular a number of chapels and pubs. The beautiful mountainous scenery of Snowdonia borders Bethesda, with the Lôn Las Ogwen cycling and walking paths skirting past. For the more adventurous, why not visit Zip World in Bethesda which is known for having Europe’s fastest and longest zip line. Capel Curig, just ten miles away, is a popular centre for walking, climbing and mountain biking, whilst Llanberis is situated at the foot of Mount Snowdon and is home to the Snowdon Mountain Railway and the National Slate Museum. Cwm Idwal is also a wonderful spot to visit, situated in northern Snowdonia – Darwin came to study the area and found tiny fossils of oceanic plant life and sea creatures in the boulders and rocks. The coastal town of Caernarfon is just a short drive away as is the beautiful Isle of Anglesey and the Anglesey Coastal Path. Visitors to the area can also explore the castles of Caernarfon and Beaumaris and the NT stately homes of Penrhyn Castle and Plas Newydd Country House and Gardens. Spend the day at one of the many traditional seaside resorts, or discover the isolated, hidden beaches on Anglesey, much of which is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With spectacular scenery on the doorstep, wonderful wildlife with buzzards soaring overhead and the occasional Peregrine Falcon to be seen, and many exciting outdoor adventures to discover nearby, Bethesda is superbly located for enjoying both the coast and the countryside of stunning North Wales.
