  • Miss Arundale

    “This is a beautiful cottage, much larger than we'd expected which was a bonus!”

    It had everything we needed for our week away, the location is perfect - quiet, and close to both Snowdonia for outdoor activities and plenty of other things to do. The host was lovely too.

The property

Enjoying an elevated position above Bethesda, with beautiful, rugged views of the surrounding landscape to Penrhyn Quarry, is this homely, semi-detached holiday cottage.

Just five minutes from Zip World, and 10 from the town centre, Arfryn is perfect for adrenaline junkies, friends, families or even couples exploring this beautiful area.

Situated on a residential street with parking for three cars, the cottage is deceptively spacious.

The kitchen is well-equipped with fresh, white-gloss cupboards and a breakfast area for four people.

The comfortable sitting room has a lovely red-brick fireplace and woodburner, along with a dining table and patio doors leading into the garden.

There is also a bathroom and two bedrooms on the ground floor, including a pretty double room with its own en-suite and a nice view over the garden.

Upstairs is the master bedroom and a second room with a single bed.

In the summer you can dine outside and watch the zip wire action, or bask in the sunshine which warms the garden for most of the day.

Zip World is just a five-minute walk away from the cottage, and the centre of Bethesda and all its amenities can be reached in about 10 minutes.

The town is a wonderful place to explore North Wales from; you can visit Bangor, Anglesey and Llanberis within half an hour in the car, visit the Ogwen Valley, or make your way to the top of Snowdon for a simply spectacular view!

With so much to see and do, you’ll be sure of a fun-filled, action-packed holiday!

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.
