    We were greeted by the lovely owners Rob & Pam who live in the cottage next door. The location is wonderful just over 1000ft above sea level and apart from the mountain views you could also see the sea which I wasn’t expecting so an added bonus. The cottage is quirky benefitting from a utility/ boot room when you enter, ideal for coming in from a rainy day so you can discard wet clothes and dry off soggy dogs. It was useful to have the separate loo as well as the main bathroom one too. Shower over the bath was nice and worked well. The bedroom is warm and cosy and has a wonderful view from the picture window. The lounge/kitchen is well equipped and has all that you need. In fact we benefited from a new fan oven on the day after we arrived as the oven had broken. Pam and Rob were apologetic but we didn’t worry as we always take a curry for the first evening to save cooking, so only required the hob anyway! Dog friendly garden as secure with the gate and a bench table tucked around the side of the cottage which is a lovely sun trap. Lovely comfortable folding garden chairs were available to use and for a whole sunny day we made perfect use of them. We made use of the supermarkets in Bangor for provisions which was an easy car ride and to get into the heart of the mountains was a very short journey which was fantastic. We both enjoyed the holiday and would definitely return.

The property

Llanberis 4 miles. This idyllic, stone-built, detached cottage is situated in an elevated position on the slopes of Elidir Fach Mountain with views across the countryside to Anglesey and Snowdonia.a Fully converted from an 1850s shippon, this delightful cottage offers spacious ground floor accommodation with a king-size bedroom with distant sea views, a large open plan living area with a sofa bed, a galleried ceiling with original oak beams, a crog loft where you can sit and read, and a warming multi-fuel stove to sit and relax in front of on cooler evenings.

There is a nearby stream that passes the property. There are superb walks and cycle trails from this Llanberis cottage, which offer stunning mountain and coastal views, including those that lead to the Marchlyn Mawr Reservoir and the northern slopes of Elidir Fawr.

The Llanberis Lake Railway runs alongside the banks of Llyn Padarn, whilst Llanberis itself has shops, pubs and restaurants, plus Mount Snowdon is 4 miles away by car and 2.5 miles away on foot through the lovely Padarn County Park.

Other attractions in the area include the ruins of Dolbadarn Castle, Ceunant Mawr - a cascading waterfall and Caernarfon, with its wonderful castle town walls.

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.
