  • "Really lovely little traditional stone and slate cottage."

    Nicely converted with a modern interior the accommodation is well equipped, extremely clean and comfortable. The location is ideal for visiting Snowdonia, Anglesey and all the seaside towns of North Wales. There are good shopping and eating facilities within 15 minutes drive. We were four, a couple and two friends one person with walking difficulties and we found the cottage worked well for us. Would happily return and would recommend to others.

  • "Really enjoyed our stay at the cottage, good location with plenty of days out and activities close by."

    The cottage was very clean and had good facilities and we spent lots of time outside in the rear sun-trap patio area. The only down side we found was the rear view of the property. This was overwhelmed by a very large orange scissor lift in the area after the garden.

  • "We’ve just got back from the most amazing stay in this lovely little cottage."

    It felt like home as soon as we walked through the door. Well equipped, comfortable, spotlessly clean and the perfect location for everything we wanted to do. Would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to visit north wales. Bangor not far away for supermarkets and shops. Amazing days out; zip world (Velocity 2, deep mine tour, Fforest rollercoaster and bounce below all a must) Llandudno pier, the tram and crazy golf at the top of the orme rock, Anglesey has stunning beaches, walks and views, National trust properties; Penrhyn castle, Bodnant gardens and Plas Newedd are a must. Portmeirion village, The national slate museum and go exploring up in the quarry. On previous visits to north wales we have also visited Caernarfon, Conwy and rode on the Ffestiniog railway. If the pandemic has done anything, it’s highlighted that you can still have an amazing time right here in the UK. We would highly recommend this rental to anyone. Just perfect for us (family of three - should have been four but sadly one member of our family couldn’t come this time) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  • "Lovely cottage in a great location for exploring Snowdonia and Anglesey."

    Very clean and tidy, well equipped, peaceful and cosy. The patio to the rear is a great little suntrap to sit with a drink on a sunny afternoon. We enjoyed watching the birds, listening to the owls at night, and stargazing.

    The cottage was very clean and felt welcoming and we had no issues during our stay.

    Very comfortable with all the amenities and home comforts to make your stay cosy and relaxed. Thoroughly enjoyed staying. Nice location too. I was working, so not a holiday, but it was nice to come home to every evening, home from home.

  • "I was disappointed to get an email within hours of my arrival asking if I’d enjoyed my stay."

    I had to check my booking thinking there was a mistake. Also I was disappointed to find only 1 loo roll for 4 guests for 2 nights, no milk and 6 tea bags and 8 coffee sachets. But my biggest disappointment was a list of demands before leaving. I have ran an Airbnb for 3 years and would never ask my guests to leave the property the way they found it as in cleaning and hoovering etc There was instructions to where the hoover was stored and I was asked to strip the beds clean the property! I would never leave a property in a mess but a list of demands was a step too far for me.

  • "We loved the cottage."

    Great location, close to so many beautiful places. Cottage is immaculately clean, well equipped (love the sharp knives) and has lots of plug sockets which was handy. Fridge and freezer on the small size, and cottage is missing a fan (as we had particularly good weather so was stuffy in the upstairs bedrooms). We particularly loved the log fire and very sunny garden, great for sun lovers! Only downside was the cottage is not particularly child friendly (we have a 17 month old) with the narrow & steep stairs (giving difficulty in fitting a stair gate provided), and drop off the patio onto slate. All in all we had a perfect break away in a perfect little cottage. Would recommend!

  • "We could not have asked for a better place to stay for exploring Snowdonia."

    The cottage is so cosy and perfectly location for the Ogwen Valley and its surrounding mountain ranges, with plenty of shops and restaurants also on your doorstep. Some reviews suggest the cottage has a small fridge and limitations such as lack of cooking equipment/ hair dryer etc- please do not let this put you off, there was absolutely everything you could need (the fridge is just a standard fridge with a freezer box, so more than ample). The shed and hose were also great for storing and cleaning down bikes. We hope to come for another stay here in the future!

  • "The holiday cottage was fantastic."

    It was such a lovely little break. The cottage felt modern whilst still keeping its charm. It was clean, cosy and had everything we needed for a little break. The location of the cottage was also fab - so close to everything and the owners were really helpful when we asked for some recommendations for a local takeaway. We would 110% recommend this cottage and can't wait to hopefully one day return.

    Fridge is a bit small, but does the job and stored drinks in the shed Garden has a lovely aspect catching the sun all day long with a picnic really handy. The shed is a a helpful addition to store bikes and other equipment. No shops in walking distance, but lots of other shops in Bangor, Menai Bridge or Bethesda just a short drive or bike ride away. Lovely stay, disn’t Manage to see all the sites, electric mountain, national slate musesum because of covid, so will have to return. Well kept cottage, brilliant shower and with WiFi and smart tele, made the stay more comfortable.

    Absolutely immaculate. We spent the weekend here pre-Christmas, just to chill, eat, drink and watch movies infront of the log burner. Did not disappoint.

About the location


Bangor 5 miles.

Tregarth is a traditional Welsh village, originating from the slate mining industry but now a friendly village with a traditional pub and active village community centre. The old railway tracks for the mines have been closed and converted into cycle paths as part of the 250-mile Lon Las Cymru network from Cardiff to Holyhead, which winds its way through the Nant Francon Pass alongside the Ogwen river to Llyn Owen. Two miles away is Bethesda, a small town on the River Ogwen in North Wales with a number of shops, chapels and pubs. The coastal city of Bangor is six miles away and is best known for its university. Bangor also has a harbour and is close to the Thomas Telford-designed Menai Suspension Bridge which links the mainland to the Isle of Anglesey. South of Tregarth is the Snowdonia National Park with its stunning mountain walks, breathtaking scenery and many towns and villages. Capel Curig is a popular centre for walking, climbing and mountain biking whilst Llanberis is situated at the foot of Mount Snowdon and is home to the Snowdon Mountain Railway, the National Slate Museum and the High Ropes activity centre.
