  • "Fabulous stay, so comfortable and spacious, wonderful for a young family and dog."

    Lovely garden, the kids adored the play equipment, plus perfect location and stunning views for the adults. We will be back!

  • "A good stay, great location for hiking out towards the Ogwen Valley."

    Well equipped place with everything we needed for a weekend. It is not very clear from description but one of the sofas is a sofa bed in the living room which is how it sleeps 12 adults. Plenty of parking - we fitted 6 cars in the parking with no issue. We were all very happy with the price. To improve including some kindling for the fire might be good - and it was trial and error for us to work out which way the vent on the chimney was open / closed. A note would have saved us making it smoky at first! Secondly when we arrived there were some baking trays on top of the oven that were very clearly dirty from a previous occupant. Reflects worse on the previous occupants than the owners - but they could have been spotted and resolved.

  • "It was a lovely traditional feeling cottage, warm and comfortable though some of the furniture was "well-worn."

    " We had a few minor problems, but the owner was helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed our stay. It would be useful to have directions from the south as well as from the North, especially as sat nav doesn't help in arriving. (we were warned!)

  • "Upstairs bedrooms/bathrooms were ok but under the beds had not been cleaned."

    The shower leaked into the living room from the bathroom on the landing. Downstairs bedroom/bathroom unsuitable for my wife and I - inadequate clothes hanging space. Kitchen had not been cleaned thoroughly eg old onion in breadbin! The appliances were of a good standard and we had a good supply of hot water but the arrangement for the electrics feeding the washing machine concerned us. My wife spent the first hour cleaning/disinfecting all the cupboards/surfaces in the kitchen. Living room furniture was shabby to say the least and several items needed repairing. Cobwebs were present and the room smelt musty. All in all, disappointing for the money we paid.

    Clean and comfortable in a lovely location with beautiful views. Originally booked for May but dates easily transferred due to Covid.

  • "The property was very comfortable."

    The disabled facilities were good except one of the single beds was too soft and two low. The kitchen was well-equipped but old and tired. The oven door didn’t shut properly and the fridge was far too small for a family of 8.

  • "Sadly this holiday cottage did not live up to our expectations to the extent that we came home a day early."

    The size and the location of the property was what we wanted so no complaints there. We expected an old house and possibly old furniture, however, the whole place inside needs a complete deep clean and de-clutter. The place is dingy and smells damp. The beds have seen better days and the pillows, quilts and bed linen need to be replaced as they are old and marked. An old curtain is used as the door to the downstairs bedroom. We couldn't use the jacuzzi as the mouldy smell in the bathroom was too bad. The garden cannot be used for children to play in as there is an old dilapidated slide and a lot of rubble lying around. The BBQ and patio area are not usable. We took photos of the worst areas but they don't portray our unhappiness and disappointment. This is an unloved, neglected house not a holiday home. We are so disappointed that we rented a property that is so neglected and we feel that we have been ripped off. This house is not worth over £600 for 3 nights (we stayed 2) and ideally we would like our money back.

  • "The sofa bed in the living room was very uncomfortable an needs replacing."

    Also, although there was fire-wood provided for the wood-burner, this was damp and there was no kindling wood provided.Finally, more than one roll of toilet paper per bathroom would have been a nice touch. Overall we were happy with the cottage and the location was excellent. A little more attention to detail and fixing the issue with the sofa-bed would have made it excellent..

  • "We loved staying in the property over Christmas and the New Year."

    There was plenty of room for the whole family including older members who could stay on the ground floor. Three bathrooms meant no trouble with blocking and, importantly for the time of year, it was easy to keep the whole house warm!

  • "The cottage was comfortable and provided everything we needed - however it needs updating and a deep clean as many parts were scruffy eg shower cubicle in downstairs wetroom, also most curtains appeared grubby and were hanging off the rails."

    Lighting in the sitting room was inadequate with some bulbs not working. Outside areas were a bit overgrown with lots of weeds. No telephone although the details said there was one in the cottage.

  • "The property is generally clean, but could do with a deep clean."

    It is getting a little tired in places, but this is reflected in the price. One of the WC's wasn't working. A plumber was apparently coming out, but toilet remained unusable - bit frustrating with a large group. Minor gripes; otherwise comfortable stay

About the location


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.
