    Perfect little gem of a place, for me and mum and her dog, little hard to find but owner so helpful as it was late our arrival , place was comfortable and although a little out of our normal way found some unexpected places to visit would highly recommend and mum would defiantly return she loved it so comfortable

  • "This cottage is fantastic!"

    It has an amazing view and a great location. The people there are really friendly and welcoming. I really think everyone should stay here. You can take the 67C bus from Bangor railway station to get here. It's only a short 7-8 minute walk from the station. The view from the cottage is really nice. I rated 3 out of 4 for facilities and maintenance mainly because the smoke detector is very sensitive. It goes off even when you're toasting or when you open the preheated microwave. We're really happy with the cottage. A big thank you to the team who take care of cleaning and maintaining the cottage.

  • "Whilst newly renovated, modern and clean the space was rather small and would only really be used as a base if most of the time is spent outdoors."

    We had booked for the proximity to Zip World - which is very close indeed. However, the location does not have much in the surrounding area in terms of shops and places to eat - a drive away is required. Of an evening, the living space was somewhat cramped with compact sofas needing to be rearranged if watching tv. There is no option for ambient lighting in the kitchen-dining-living area. You need all lights on pretty much all day as the sun does not reach this area in the day. The lights cannot be dimmed to relax of an evening meaning the light remains bright. Unfortunately we also had a complete black out from half 10 in the night with no electricity. This was rectified by the morning and there were torches located around the cabin - perhaps suggesting this is a frequent occurrence that is prepared for. We did not meet the hosts but they did leave a pint of milk in the fridge for our arrival which was appreciated and also had contact details in the welcome pack. Overall, a good base to explore but not spacious or overly comfortable for families looking to also spend time together indoors.

  • "Very clean and cosy cabin."

    Recently built/ decorated throughout, new kitchen, appliances. Master bedroom is great size with enough storage space. Has an outside sitting terrace with a great views of surrounding hills. There is a parking for one car, very quiet village. There is a contact for a landlady who is very responsive and helpful. Would definitely go back. Highly recommended.

This delightful log cabin sits within the quaint village of Rachub, at the foot of the Carneddau Mountains amongst the dramatic Eryri (Snowdonia) Mountain Range.

Set over the ground floor, Cwt y Mynydd is perfect for families seeking a break to the North Wales, with easy access to the scenic Isle of Anglesey.

Upon arrival, take a moment to admire the distant views towards Anglesey before getting to know to know your new home-from-home.

Step into the open-plan living area, boasting a light and airy feel, here you can slump on the sofa following a day of rambles, or make yourself useful in the kitchen as you prepare a hearty meal, with an electric oven, gas hob and fridge amongst the appliances.

Serve the fruits of your labour at the dining table before continuing the evening outside to the decking area, allowing for lovely views down the hillside.

Freshen up in the contemporary shower room before finding comfort in the double bedroom, while there is also a bunk room for the little ones.

Just down the road is a pub and convenience store, handy for picking up any essentials, whilst the nearby village of Bethesda hosts a wider range of amenities, including several shops and eateries.

Outdoor enthusiasts can join local footpaths leading to unspoilt walking trails on Eryri's (Snowdonia’s) Carneddau mountain range, and keen cyclists will find adventure on twisting countryside roads.

Alternatively, adrenaline junkies can take on the Zip World at Penrhyn Quarry, Europe’s fastest and longest zip line, while Bounce Below offers a unique underground trampoline experience!

Enjoy a change of scenery in the city of Bangor, where you can see wonderful Menai Suspension Bridge over the river, along with the National Trust-owned Penrhyn Castle, while the beach days can be enjoyed in Llanfairfechan, offering fun for all the family.
