  • "We had a lovely stay at Rhydau Cottage, it was like a home away from home!"

    The location was perfect, situated around 10 minutes from Snowdon. Looking out of the windows and seeing mountains was a lovely way to wake up. Would highly recommend staying here.

  • "Lovely cottage, spotlessly clean and well equipped."

    Peaceful and pleasant surroundings. Only a short drive to a selection of supermarkets and with easy reach of many of North Wales attractions. Owner on hand for any problems. Would thoroughly recommend this cottage.

  • "Such a lovely house, feels so cosy and homely."

    The pictures on the advert don't do it justice. The owners were very helpful and welcoming when we arrived.

  • "The cottage was excellent."

    It was well looked after and cosy to settle down in. There were just two things that were difficult. 1. Lack of accurate directions to get to the cottage. If we had been told about the “Paintball Wales.com” signs that pointed directly to the cottage it would have been easier. 2. Little / no information about “good” eating places locally. We did find one, but the was no guidance. Other than these two grumbles it was a great holiday.

  • "The interior of the cottage was just as the photos shows, it was clean and warm and the wood burner was a nice addition."

    . I agree with previous reviewers; the outdoor seating area could be a bit more pleasant, perhaps with some sort of covering and screening and the kitchen could do with more crockery - only had 4 mugs. The overly large and high dining table and low dining chairs made mealtimes slightly uncomfortable. The shower room has no slip resistant mat and there are no blinds at the windows. Please be aware the property stated no pets, this is one of our booking requirements as my husband has a bad alleges to dogs and cats. The owners have two cats that were always trying to enter the property when the door was opened.

  • "The property was amazing."

    Very quiet location, rooms were bigger than the pictures portray which is unusual as normally people try to make pictures look bigger. The host was quick to respond to messages and were great.

  • "A really lovely cottage - very comfortable and cosy for our visit when the weather was cold, wet and windy."

    Would have loved to have lit the log burner but the cottage was so cosy we didn't need it. The cottage was as described in the listing with everything that you could need for a home from home break. Loved the movement sensitive lights on the ground floor.

  • "The cottage was excellent."

    It was warm and inviting on arrival and the owner friendly and helpful. The conversion has been done and maintained to a very high standard. The property was spotlessly clean and well equipped- large fridge and plenty of kitchen utensils.The bathroom is beautiful and the shower exactly what you need - large, powerful and hot! The cottage is an ideal position to easily reach the mountains, coast and Anglesey and although is close to a main road you can't hear the traffic. We are already booking a return visit. Thank you so much Fiona

  • "There’s so much to love about this cottage."

    We had high expectations from the photos and it didn’t disappoint. There’s a fabulous bathroom, perfect for a long soak after a day in the hills. Modern kitchen, epic dining table and cosy fireside seating. Easy access from the main road with plenty of parking. There’s a great little shop at the petrol station just a few minutes away which has an amazing selection of plant based products. This is a fabulous little cottage and highly recommended.

  • "Absolutely gorgeous cottage in a fantastic location for all that Snowdonia has to offer."

    The interior of the cottage was of a very high standard and would definitely recommend it. If I could improve anything it would be to make the outdoor seating area a bit more pleasant, perhaps with some sort of covering. And provide a non-slip mat for the shower. And a hairdryer would have been useful. But really those things didn't spoil our holiday at all - the cottage itself is beautiful.

    My partner loved the stand alone bath and we both loved the comfort of the lounge and the awesome log burner which made for lovely relaxed evenings. Fiona was very helpful making sure we had everything we needed & it will be a pleasure to book again in the future. A selection of the lighting being activated by movement is a nice touch too.

    The cottage was lovely and quiet but located just off a main road - we were greeted by the owner and shown round - they have done a fantastic job of converting it into a modern comfortable environment - loved it - its ideally placed for snowdonia and the west coast - the garage about a mile up the road also sells most things you can need

  • "Thoughtful and stylish conversion into a cottage with lots of comforts - fluffy towels, logs, quality beds and bedding."

    Bathroom is awesome. Well equipped kitchen with a posh Smeg fridge. Outside, plenty of parking, bbq and comfy outdoor furniture. Perfect for star gazing and staring at mountains (as long as the Welsh weather lets you). The locations is great for beaches (try Dinas Dinlle) and for walking in Snowdonia. Loads of family attractions nearby - we highly recommend the slate mine and Great Orme copper mine. Plenty of castles and gardens too.

    Wow - what a fantastic place to stay. Absolutely immaculate and equipped with high quality furnishings too.

About the location


Llanberis 4 miles; Caernarfon 8 miles; Bangor 8 miles.

The village of Deiniolen, housing a village pub and shop, is 4 miles north of Llanberis, on the border of the Snowdonia National Park, making it an ideal base to explore the National Park. The Llanberis Railway runs nearby along the banks of Lake Padarn, whilst the ruins of Dolbadarn Castle are 2 miles away, or visit Ceunant Mawr, a cascading waterfall just outside Llanberis. Local walks lead to the Marchlyn Mawr Reservoir on the northern slopes of Elidir Fawr. Llanberis is 4 miles away and is flanked by two lakes, Llyn Padarn and Llyn Peris and is one of the most popular mountain tourist centres in the Snowdonia National Park. In fact, Llanberis is something of a “mecca” for walkers and climbers, being the starting point for the ascent of Snowdon - the highest mountain in England and Wales. The ascent can be made either by train, on the Snowdon Mountain Railway, or on foot along one of the many routes to the summit. Each year, major racing events attract thousands to the area: The fast Snowdon Race to the summit, held in July every year and The Snowdonia Marathon, held in October - a gruelling 26 mile course that starts and finishes in Llanberis, circumnavigating the Snowdon Massif. Within Llanberis itself there are excellent places to eat and drink and a great choice of shopping. On the coast is Caernarfon with its magnificent castle and town walls and close by are National Trust properties at Penrhyn and Plas Newydd.
