“A 2nd great holiday at Ynys Wen, this time in autumn”
We 1st visited Ynys Wen in April 2014 and we were delighted to return this time in September. The house, parking and gardens again were delightful and a number of facilities had been updated within the house, the garden has been upgraded with safe paths and looked really great in the autumn. The warmth of the house after a day walking was again very welcome and we loved the friendly atmosphere of the house. Accommodation and cooking facilities are excellent and we would highly recommend Ynys ...
We 1st visited Ynys Wen in April 2014 and we were delighted to return this time in September. The house, parking and gardens again were delightful and a number of facilities had been updated within the house, the garden has been upgraded with safe paths and looked really great in the autumn. The warmth of the house after a day walking was again very welcome and we loved the friendly atmosphere of the house. Accommodation and cooking facilities are excellent and we would highly recommend Ynys Wen as a warm and comfortable base for an activity or walking holiday in Llanberis and for the whole of Snowdonia. Many thanks Carl for a second excellent holiday base.

About the location
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.
