  • "We loved our stay at Maesteg with three people in their 70/80 ,s it would have been better with an extra hand rail on the stairs and a toilet upstairs, the beds were the very best I slept in and it could have benefitted from an extra chair in the lounge but the property was beautiful."

    The single bedroom with the en-suite needs someone taller than my 5 foot 1 to reach the shower controls.

  • "This house is an excellent base for waking with outstanding views."

    The kitchen is very well equipped and having the garage/utility facilities is perfect for drying off wet walking boots etc. An extra chair in the lounge would be useful. Very good communication from the caretaker.

  • "The house was fantastic, the only thing letting it down was the unused outdoor balcony."

    We brought camping chairs as we’d read other reviews but it’s a shame that such a great space is completely unused. Thanks for a fabulous stay.

  • "A great property in a great location."

    Some constructive feedback: Property somewhat let down by the complete lack of garden furniture. The large roof terrace could be a good space to sit out, enjoy the much touted views, even BBQ and dine al fresco. But given the lack of outside furniture it's just a waste of space. Also only having the lawns cut once a month means the front of the property can look untidy between cuts. Also, as the property is dog friendly, guests should know that rhubarb, strawberries and blackcurrants are grown in the garden. These are a temptation for dogs (although not dangerous, they can upset tummies). Clearer guidance on recycling would also help.

  • "A fantastic property in an amazing location."

    Good local facilities and easy access to Snowdonia, Anglesey etc. Lovely roof terrace with fab views - a shame there was no seating on roof - we had a couple of camping chairs with us but the area is crying out for some patio furniture. Kitchen well equipped, bedrooms spacious and a nice garden. We had 2 visits from sheep who jumped over the wall :-)

  • "Nous avons apprécié notre séjour à Maesteg."

    La résidence est bien situé au centre du village et à 1 minute de marche de l’épicerie et des restaurants et près des magnifiques montagnes du parc Snowdonia et du lac Padarn. L’endroit est sympathique avec un cachet campagnard et vieillot. Nous avons apprécié la cuisine assez bien équipée mais les recouvrements de planchers avec tapis et sous tapis bien que confortables on été une source d’allergène pour nous. Il y a plusieurs salle de bain et une salle d’eau à l’étage des chambres mais aucune à l’étage du salon et de la cuisine ce qui serait vraiment pratique.

    Superb location for so many activities as well, and walking distance to many bars, restaurants etc.

  • "A beautiful house in a beautiful place."

    This 'upside down' house makes the most of the wonderful mountain scenery. Spacious, clean, well furnished, well equipped and decorated to high standard. Wood burning stove in lounge great for winter stays and roof terrace great for warmer days. Location on high street means easy walking distance and level access to a variety of shops, cafes and pubs. Lots of nearby visitor attractions and fabulous walking - lake, waterfalls, mountain and lake railways, slate museum, castle, Snowdon itself and more. Lovely well kept garden, safe for dogs and children. Very highly recommended. Our party of 7 adults had a wonderful stay.

  • "The house was perfect for us and in a great location."

    The host was really helpful and responded quickly to any questions. The log burner was a real bonus and the beds were super comfy. Everything felt recently updated and new and an extra ‘boot room’ was great for all that walking gear. Milk in the fridge for when we arrived was an extra welcome and climbing holds above the lounge door a nice touch! We would definite stay again.

    Could not fault it at all. The owners / caretakers very kindly left us some milk in the fridge so we could have a brew after our long drive to arrive. They were very helpful and showed great customer service. Pleasure to stay there.

The property

Perched in the charming village of Llanberis in Gwynedd, is this fantastic, reverse-level house, Maesteg.

Boasting a fabulous location next to the scenic Coed y Brenin Forest Park and easy access to the renowned Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park, Maesteg is a superb dwelling for a group or family of eight, plus their four-legged companions to explore this beautiful area of North Wales.

Arriving at the property, you will be greeted by a large private driveway with space for two cars and a neat, enclosed garden with lovely picnic bench where you can savour your morning coffee.

Step into the property, where on the ground-floor there are five well-presented bedrooms to choose from at the end of the evening, a kIng-size room with en-suite shower room, a kingsize room, one double, a single with en-suite shower room and a single, each with plenty of storage for your belongings and ensuring flexible sleeping arrangements for all parties.

There is also a bathroom where you can indulge in blissful bubble baths or refreshing showers after a day of exploring.

Completing the ground-floor is a handy boot room for storing any walking or swimming equipment and a garage/utility with additional freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer and toys and games kindly provided by the owner.

Climb the stairs to the first floor, where you will find the well-equipped kitchen for rustling up an array of culinary delights with the help of the range cooker with gas hobs, fridge/freezer and microwave, ready to be enjoyed at the dining table for eight over a glass of wine.

After a satisfying meal, continue the evening out on the patio balcony to enjoy the evening sunlight or pop downstairs to the well maintained garden to allow your canine companions to stretch their legs, or retire to the generous corner sofa for a night in front of your favourite film on the TV, as the woodburning stove crackles nearby.

Take advantage of your amazing location and explore Llanberis, where you can delve into history at the National Slate Museum settled in the World Heritage Site of the Dinorwig Quarry and the fascinating 13th-century ruins of Dolbadarn Castle, take to the waters of the expansive Llyn Padarn with an excellent selection of watersports on offer including kayaking, canoeing and paddleboarding, or simply sit back and relax as you soak up the views with a ride on the Llanberis Lake Railway.

Walkers and climbers alike will delight at the selection of walking and climbing opportunities available, including the famous Yr Wyddfa (Mount Snowdon) which can be accessed via a selection of walking trails, or if you came for the views but don’t fancy the hike, hop aboard the Snowdon Mountain Railway which will take you along a scenic route where you will pass waterfalls and the beautiful ruins of a church before reaching the summit.

Take the short drive to the historic town of Caernarfon, home to the World Heritage 13th-century Caernarfon Castle which houses exhibits and a museum, as well as offering stunning views over the Menai Strait.

A wonderful getaway any time of the year, choose Maesteg.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Caernarfon 7 miles; Bangor 10 miles; Betws-y-Coed 17 miles.

Dominated by the grandeur of the Yr Wyddfa (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 Eryri (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.
