  • "Great place to stay if you're visiting Snowdonia, close to Snowdon and Llanberis but still far enough from the most touristic places if you just want to spend some time relaxing in a rural area."

    The property is great, very comfortable and clean and the heating provides the right temperature to be comfortable at home. You're at a walking distance from a small shop where you can get most things you need to enjoy your stay.

    The cottage was well situated for snowdonia and mountain walks and travel.On the cottage only issue was the two single beds,mattress were too soft for adult ok for young kids.Overal ideal place for the mountains and Anglesey.

  • "Cottage as described."

    Clean, comfortable and everything needed to make it a lovely holiday. Lovely garden to sit in and eat. Owners friendly and left tea, coffee and milk in the cottage for our arrival which was a nice touch. Located centrally to reach all the locations we wished to visit. Car needed as shops and places to eat a little way from the cottage. Superb weather. In all a great and relaxing holiday. Thank you

  • "Loved loved loved the place."

    It was one with the nature. Very close to almost all places in north Wales. Took us no time to realize the little conservatory was the best part of the cottage, sit there with a cup of coffee early in the morning to be greeted with birds and clear blue sky and sun. It felt like a holiday

    The cottage was immaculately clean and very comfortable. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The location was perfect for us as we were only a short drive away from many places we wanted to visit. We had a fantastic break away, it was just what we needed! Thank you!

  • "First time we've stayed in a holiday cottage so we're unsure on what to expect."

    On arrival we were met by Colin the owner, he was welcoming, telling us that if there was anything we need to give us a knock. There was free Wi-Fi, board games, reading material, information for things to do and places to eat, smoke parking for two cars. It felt like a real home from home.

  • "Excellent stay."

    Made very welcome by our hosts.Milk in the fridge and a hospitality tray ready. For us the situation was convenient for touring the area. However,we were off the road and therefore extremely quiet. We look forward to returning.

    Lovely comfortable property. Location was less rural than I'd realised as it was by a road - my fault completely. This meant it was easy to get around though. Really enjoyed our stay.

    Other than that the cottage was excellent. A bonus for us was the daily visit of the woodpeckers. All in all a great break.

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.
