  • “A very spacious property for our ...”
    A very spacious property for our large group, lovely setting and lovely building. Only negative was that the internet speed was very slow when two or more people are using it at the same time. It didn't spoil the holiday though.

This provides very spacious, light and airy, high quality accommodation enjoying stunning views, with a superb vaulted roof with exposed beams and a feature, central column chimney breast with a double-sided woodburner to benefit both the dining area and the spacious sitting room with a welcoming warmth.

The kitchen with breakfast counter is the ideal place for all to gather around whilst a tasty home-cooked meal for the group is prepared.

About the location

LLANBERIS

Caernarfon 7 miles; Bangor 10 miles; Betws-y-Coed 17 miles.

Dominated by the grandeur of the Snowdon Massif, Llanberis 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 via 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, a triathlon known as the world's toughest, and The Snowdonia Marathon, held in October - a gruelling 26-mile course that starts and finishes in Llanberis, circumnavigating the Snowdon Massif. The area is also popular for mountain biking, open water swimming and stand up paddle boarding. Within Llanberis itself there are excellent places to eat and drink and a great choice of shopping. Just 7 miles from Llanberis on the coast is Caernarfon with its magnificent castle and town walls and close by are National Trust properties at Penrhyn, Plas Newydd and Bodnant Gardens.
