  • "The water is not drinkable no mention on website."

    There were no basic things washing liquid or washing machine. We reached late so had to rush to get stuff. No locks on bathrooms. The cottage itself is brilliantly placed 10 /10 for that , spectacular view.. .. heating would not come on when it was cold, it seemed someone had nest on there phone and kept putting the heat down which was annoying. My nephew was so cold all night wore his jacket at night.

    I'm sorry your stay didn't meet your expectations. We have installed a state-the-art reverse osmosis water purification system which is tested and serviced regularly. The water is drinkable. However, we have had some service interruptions due to the hottest and driest summer for decades. We apologise for the heating. After seeing your review we investigated & it seems that a previous guest had programmed their own schedule and not deleted it or told us that they had done this. We have now deleted it from the system. Property Owner

  • "A lovely place to stay."

    Would be even better with a cafetiere, clothes horse and a large saucepan.

  • "We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bryn and found it to be a central location in a lovely area with easy access to Zip World (around 1mile) and Bethesda (1."

    5miles). It was lovely to wake up to such scenic views as the weather was exceptional while we were there. The owners have definitely taken on board the previous comments as there were toilet roll, kitchen roll, tea/coffee/sugar and a welcoming pack which always goes down well. The wi fi does drop off at times but overall worked very well. Thank you for a very pleasant stay.

  • "Having booked with you before, I had faith in the accuracy of your listings and confidence in the value for money you offer."

    The accommodation Bryn offers is basic. The feeling that the whole house has been decorated and furnished for the minimum possible outlay is inescapable. The kitchen is poorly designed and equipped and lacks a full size dishwasher. More significantly for a holiday let in an area for outdoor enthusiasts is the lack of washing machine and any means for drying clothes. No coathooks, a folding dining table with seating only for 4, no washing up liquid.... I could go on. I have no problem with any of these issues in isolation if they were reflected in the price, but 3 nights here were the same price as 7 the previous week in a far superior property on Anglesey. I'm conscious that the laws of supply and demand have pushed prices up this year but can't help feeling that in this case, we've been exploited.

  • "Great location , lovely property as described Would definitely book again."

    Only issue was that the Wi-Fi wasn’t working (which is no bad thing..) but as no phone reception had to travel into the village (1 mile away) if wanting to contact anyone.

The property

Encompassed by a mountainous region with verdant hills and far-reaching countryside views is this contemporary cottage, sleeping a family of five.

Bryn is a spacious, semi-detached property that welcomes you in through a gravel driveway, shared with the adjoining property, located on a peaceful country road.

Spend a perfect evening inside the cottage, catching up with your loved ones over a much-needed glass of wine and scrumptious meal cooked in the well-equipped kitchen, a contemporary space fitted with all your essential amenities.

When you're ready to relax, put your feet up on the sofa in the sitting room as you feel the homely comfort of the traditional wood burning stove and the TV plays your favourite family film.

Downstairs holds a convenient cloakroom, great after a day of walking trails when your legs can't make it up the stairs.

Retire upstairs to one of three beautiful, blue bedrooms; a double, twin and a single are available to choose from.

Let all your troubles fade away in the spacious shower room, where you can scrub away and freshen up in a moment of quiet away from the kids.

Wrapped around the rear of the cottage is a lovely terraced patio area, benefiting from wooden decking and a picnic bench, an ideal spot to spend an afternoon lunch on a sunny day.

An unforgettable family holiday awaits at Bryn, a fantastic Welsh cottage getaway.

About the location


  • Bangor 6 miles
  • Caernarfon 10 miles

Bethesda is a small town settled beside the River Ogwen in North Wales. Situated on the A5 between Bangor and the Snowdonia National Park, Bethesda was once a busy slate quarrying town and nowadays offers a good selection of shops and other amenities, in particular a number of chapels and pubs. The beautiful mountainous scenery of Snowdonia borders Bethesda, with the Lôn Las Ogwen cycling and walking paths skirting past. For the more adventurous, why not visit Zip World in Bethesda which is known for having Europe’s fastest and longest zip line. Capel Curig, just ten miles away, 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 and the National Slate Museum. Cwm Idwal is also a wonderful spot to visit, situated in northern Snowdonia – Darwin came to study the area and found tiny fossils of oceanic plant life and sea creatures in the boulders and rocks. The coastal town of Caernarfon is just a short drive away as is the beautiful Isle of Anglesey and the Anglesey Coastal Path. Visitors to the area can also explore the castles of Caernarfon and Beaumaris and the NT stately homes of Penrhyn Castle and Plas Newydd Country House and Gardens. Spend the day at one of the many traditional seaside resorts, or discover the isolated, hidden beaches on Anglesey, much of which is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With spectacular scenery on the doorstep, wonderful wildlife with buzzards soaring overhead and the occasional Peregrine Falcon to be seen, and many exciting outdoor adventures to discover nearby, Bethesda is superbly located for enjoying both the coast and the countryside of stunning North Wales.
