  • “The cottage was immaculately kept, and we felt extremely safe with the COVID measures which have been put in place.”

    The only issue we had was with the internet connectivity. While free guest wifi was provided, the smart TV in the living room had no internet connectivity (despite being connected to the wifi) so we need to tether the TV to my mobile phone to gain internet access. The wifi worked fine for the TV in the bedroom. This didn't detract from the overall stay, and I would be more than happy to stay here again in future.

Marchlyn And Ffynnon Bach

Located on the owner’s small-holding farm with horses, sheep and the odd chicken, are these two beautiful cottages, Marchlyn and Ffynnon Bach, in the quiet ex-slate mining village of Deiniolen, surrounded by countryside with views on a clear day of Caernarfon. Both properties are benefited with two bedrooms – a king-size and a twin – so they are ideal for small families getting together in the summer, or maybe a group of old friends reuniting for a weekend break full of walking and catching up. On the ground floors you will find an open-plan living space, with a kitchen, dining area, and sitting area, so there’s plenty of room for the whole party to convene and go over the details of the day, while being warmed by the woodburning stove. The village of Deiniolen has a village pub and shop so you won’t be short of the essentials, while the larger town of Llanberis lies just four miles away boasting many tourist attractions that you will have to include in your trip like catching the train up the highest mountain in England and Wales, or visit the spectacular twin lakes of Llyn Padarn and Llyn Peris, which create the Llanberis Pass cutting through the magnificent mountain range and creating a perfect sight-seeing opportunity. The Snowdonia National Park is on your doorstep and it offers stunning mountain walks, cycling routes, and endless activities like Zip World, with sites at nearby Penrhyn Quarry or further out at Betws-y-Coed, for those daring enough to experience the closest a human being can get to skydiving without actually leaping out of a plane! With all these fun-filled adventures awaiting to fill your days up, make Marchlyn and Ffynnon Bach your tranquil holiday base so you can look forward to relaxing and winding-down in the comfort of these splendid cottages in the idyllic Welsh countryside.

About the location

DEINIOLEN

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.
