    Mr Duncan

    “The location was amazing and the views were stunning.”

    We saw a lot of birds of prey from the windows which was a fantastic bonus. Lots of Amazing walks nearby and there was plenty of room for the two of us and a dog. Whilst remote there are plenty of nearby towns to find supplies. Bangor and Llandudno can provide anything you need. The only criticism I would have is that the matresses seemed to be on there way out and could probably do with being replaced in the not to distant future. This was a really perfect base for our holiday and we will ...

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

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.
