  • "This is a little gem of a cottage."

    Comfy, with everything I needed, it was great to come back to a well-stocked log burner after a long day outside. The decor feels rustic but modern and fresh. Ideal as a base for striking out into Snowdonia or for exploring the North Wales coast. As one of the things I wanted to do was ride the Brailsford Way, it was great that there was somewhere to store my bike. The hosts were really friendly and helpful. Couldn't recommend it enough.

    Thank you so much John, was a pleasure to meet you, we're so happy you had a perfect week away from all the hustle n bustle of everyday life. Take care Nigel and Alice Property Owner

    We moved the cottage it was perfect for our honeymoon. A short drive from Llanberis and the path up to snowdon. The fire meant that when the weather was wet and windy we could come back and get warm and dry really quick. We will definitely be coming back soon as so much exploring we want to do in the area.

    The owners Nigel and Alice were amazing and always very helpful if needed. A welcome beer and free wood for the burner are nice touches. The wood burner is the only source of heating so can lead to cold starts in winter until this gets going

  • "In our opinion,whilst the cottage was as described, we didn't quite realise it was so small with a lack of windows, making it feel a little claustrophobic."

    The views around are stunning but once in the cottage you can't see a thing. We feel the shower room needs a larger basin with hot water to make shaving/ washing easier. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful but we did feel there was a lack of privacy, cutting both ways. A simple trellis would help this.

  • "The cottage was as expected in a great area for mountain lovers like us."

    It's very close to the owners, but very quiet nonetheless if peace is what you are looking for. Personally, their close proximity is a comfort if anything goes wrong, which it didn't of course. Hope to return when next in the area.

    So it was nice and cozy The cottage is not huge and doesn’t have very much hanging space, but everything is fully functional and fitted our needs exactly A few days walking in the hills, such a shame the weather wasn’t on our side high winds zero visibility and driving rain wasn’t part of the plan. We would return to Celyn anytime, as we like remote cottages with log burners in mountainous regions.

  • "This is our second consecutive year at Celyn Farm Cottage and we were welcomed back warmly by the hosts like old friends."

    The fire was lit prior to our arrival and there were fresh flowers and Welsh Cakes waiting for us. The cottage is always so clean and tidy, plenty of wood for the log burner which heats the entire place very efficiently. The peace and quiet is beautiful, as are the surroundings, a great location to be based when exploring and falling in love with Snowdonia and surrounding coastal towns. It really is a slice of perfection. If you work hard, have busy lives and need to switch off, this is definitely the place to do that. We only wish our time here was a bit longer. We will 100% be back for our third visit next year. Thank you for a lovely time Nigel and Alice. See you soon. Steve and Ceri.

    The location is perfect for those wanting a quiet break from the hustle and bustle of city life.

    What a cottage! What views! And the owners went above and beyond such a lovely little family to have at hand if needed. We had an amazing Christmas in this beautiful place that feels like it is in the middle of nowhere but has so much on your doorstep. Waking up to those views every morning was a real treat ! We've never visited Wales before but definitely will be going back hopefully to this amazing little cottage with views that leaves lasting memories of a wonderful Christmas, the owners have done an amazing job so comfortable,clean,and cozy!

  • "Excellent long weekend away, owners were lovely and very helpful."

    Although the cottage was alongside their home we felt comfortable and secluded in our own little space for the weekend. They left welcome gifts, pots, pans and the essentials along with bedding and towels. Cottage is set down a lane that is quiet enough to make you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere, but then conveniently you find yourself only a walk from Llanberis or a drive to the many spectaculars of North Wales. The weather was grim which meant the log burner felt extra special and made for an extra cosy weekend. 100% recommend. Not a bad price either, considering the location.

    The other to get to it is quite narrow but doable. We liked the remoteness and the fact that only the owner and her family lived next door. They were super friendly and helpful. Responded VERY quickly to questions and had some Welsh cakes for us when we arrived in the cottage! The cottage is perfect for a romantic getaway for two. It has absolutely everything you need, especially in th kitchen. I love cooking and I didn’t miss anything there. There’s no washing machine but we only stayed 3 nights, so it wasn’t. A problem at all. We loved it! We’re already planning to come back for a longer stay some time in the autumn. Excellent property and service. Would highly recommend it! Thanks Sykes Cottages!

The property

This cosy and pretty stone-built, detached barn conversion is situated next to the owners’ home, near the small hamlet of Deiniolen, four miles from Llanberis.

Surrounded by some wonderful scenic countryside on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park, this delightful cottage offers an ideal base for couples who love the outdoors with walks in abundance.

Celyn Farm Cottage has wonderful charm and appeal combined with character attributes, such as whitewashed stone walls and exposed beams.

The living accommodation is open plan with the sitting area enjoying a high-pitched ceiling with exposed purlins and timbers extenuating the feeling of space.

The warm and welcoming woodburning stove, with a most unusual log basket, provides a relaxing atmosphere in cooler months and is a perfect place to curl up together and watch a favourite film.

There is also the useful added benefit of a pulleymaid above the woodburner where you can dry ample amounts of clothing after days out and about.

The kitchen is fresh and modern with and a Belfast sink and there is small but functional shower room tucked in just off the kitchen.

Upstairs the crog loft provides you with a quirky bedroom with sloping ceilings, restricted head height, low level double bed and a great view over the sitting area.

Outside there is a courtyard with seating to take in the wonderful views where you can enjoy your morning cup of coffee.

There are superb walks and cycle trails all around, which offer stunning mountain and coastal views, including those that lead to the Marchlyn Mawr Reservoir and the northern slopes of Elidir Fawr.

Lanberis is four miles away where you can enjoy the Lake Railway which runs alongside the banks of Llyn Padarn, whilst Llanberis itself has shops, pubs and restaurants, and is the gateway to the stunning Mount Snowdon.

This lovely cottage is an ideal base for exploring the Snowdonia National Park and beyond all year round.

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.
