  • "The property was in a great location and the layout and style were very good."

    The bathrooms were fine and clean, the washing machine was very useful. However, there were a number of issues which adversely impacted our visit. The beds were appalling - people sleeping in the ensuite bedroom and family room had to put the mattresses on the floor to sleep as the beds were so uncomfortable and after the first night 3 of us had bad backs. The kingsize and double bed bases were broken/creaking. Mattresses were poor quality. The kingsize mattress did not fit the bed base and the bedding was too small for the mattress. These bed issues really impacted our holiday. The coffee machine had not been cleaned out, the food processor was disgustingly filthy, the outside table was filthy and the hoover was also very dirty. There were a lot of cobwebs and dust. There were many cracked floor tiles in the kitchen which were dangerous and a large window was also cracked. One of the kitchen lights flashed the whole time. There was no extractor hood for the hob - which meant the whole house (as it's open plan) smelled of food all the time. No washing up liquid was provided at all - we had to buy our own. This wasn't made clear and is very unusual. The reclining chair and sofa were broken and therefore didn't recline. There were no instructions for anything (eg washing machine, coffee machine, wine cooler, heating etc.) Overall it was very disappointing and didn't meet our expectations based on the website. We felt many of the above issues are easily sorted out but just hadn't been.

  • "Lovely spacious house with great views from living room windows also ideal garden area for children to play."

    Window on upstairs patio has a large crack as does number of kitchen tiles both of which Dave, the owner, confirmed he is aware of and does intend fixing when property vacant. Also vacuum found to be not working with bag of dust left hanging on it. Just one side of bed in master bedroom creaks loudly every time you move in bed which can be annoying and couldn’t get bottom lock on patio door in this room to open. Apart from these few minor issues overall excellent few days with family

    Cottage is lovely and has been great for a base for the week where we have been incredibly lucky and have had amazing weather!

  • "Very good property."

    Well equipped. Was a big surprise to pull up and realise that it was a semi-detatched property and that there was a fully equipped caravan set up on the same site. This should have been explained to us as we had no idea that this was the case. We had 5 small children and not having somewhere to ourselves made us a bit concerned about safety.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback following your stay at Creigfa Cottage. We are really glad you liked the house as we have taken a lot of time and care to bring it up to a standard we are proud of. It does state within the description on the website that the property was semi-detached, and the grounds are shared with neighbours, but we will adjust the description to make this even clearer for future guests. The caravan belongs to the owners, and it is only for their own occasional use, again we will make this clearer in the description. We hope to be able to welcome you back to Creigfa Cottage soon!

  • "Cottage excellent."

    Garden and pond area could do with a tidy up. Walk down to the cottage is slate chippings and is quite steep and difficult when carrying a heavy suitcase(we are not all hill walkers). These are very minor problems, overall a brilliant place to stay and we will be back.

The property

Bethesda 1.2 miles.

Tucked away in the lovely village of Tregarth near Bethesda in Gwynedd, is this superb, three-bedroom, reverse-level holiday semi-detached home, Craigfa Cottage.

Enjoying a fantastic location with easy access to Snowdonia National Park and Penrhyn Castle, as well as offering a stylish interior within two and a half acres of land, Craigfa Cottage is a wonderful family-friendly dwelling for a group or family of nine who are planning their next escape to North Wales.

Park-up on the driveway which offers ample off-road parking, before unloading your bags and making your way into your new home-from-home.

Step into the ground floor, where you will find three well-appointed bedrooms, a super-king-size with private en-suite bathroom, a double and a family room with triple bunk and a bunk bed, each with plenty of storage and a Smart TV with Freeview, perfect for those lazy Sunday mornings!

Completing the ground floor is a contemporary bathroom, where you can indulge in soothing soaks in the bath or refreshing rinses in the shower after a long day of exploring.

Climb the open-tread stairs up to the first floor, where you can look forward to conjuring up delicious meals in the well-equipped kitchen, utilising the double electric oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, along with a handy washing machine and dishwasher for keeping your space tidy.

After removing a chilled bottle of wine from the wine cooler, settle down to tuck-in to your feast at the dining table for 10, as you discuss plans for the days ahead.

If the weather is nice, why not make dinner an alfresco affair, and fire up the barbecue in the large, lawned garden?

As the evening grows dark, curl up on the plush sofas with reclining feature and relax in front of your favourite film on the Smart TV with Freeview, as the woodburning stove crackles nearby.

Awake from a restful night and rustle up morning coffee ready to enjoy on the private balcony as you savour the fabulous country views on offer, followed by a walk through the shared grounds.

Explore the local village where you will find the welcoming Pant yr Ardd pub, where you can treat your guests to a selection of tasty food and local ales, ideal for those evenings where you don’t feel like cooking!

Bethesda rests nearby and offers further dining options, including a takeaway and a well-stocked supermarket for picking up any last-minute essentials.

Outdoor enthusiast will delight at the easy access to Zip World Penrhyn Quarry, where you can see the sights in a truly unique way whilst zooming down the 500-ft high zip line!

Take the drive over to the charming village of Llanberis, which lies at the foot of the famous Snowdon peak and is home to the National Slate Museum and Electric Mountain where you can venture underground and tour the hidden power station from the depths, take advantage of the excellent watersports opportunities available on the Llyn Padarn, including paddleboarding and kayaking, explore the UNESCO Heritage Site of Dinorwig Quarry, or kick-back and relax as you enjoy a scenic ride aboard the Llanberis Lake Railway.

Those who are feeling brave can embark up the magnificent 3,560-ft Snowdon Peak, whilst if you’re wanting the views but don’t fancy the climb, the Snowdon Mountain Railway offers panoramic views on its journey to the top.

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.
