  • "A fab little cottage in an excellent location."

    Very cosy. It had all the main things we wanted. The kitchen was great, although small. Lovely that the owner left us milk and fruit, as well as washing up liquid and cloths. If we had stayed longer than a week a washing machine would have been useful, however it probably wouldn't fit in the kitchen. Lovely new shower room. The conservatory was a nice place to eat meals, although the perspex was slightly opaque. I suppose that kept it cooler in hot weather. Our old dog struggled with the steep steps into the garden, but it so so peaceful sitting there, we loved it. Some parts of the garden were looking rather tired and needed some maintenance .The road leading to the property wasn't good, very narrow in places and an uneven surface, but our car was fine as we just took it very slowly. Overall we loved it and would definitely return.

    Mr and Mrs Ellis were very warm and friendly. The weather wasn't kind to us, but apart from one day we managed to get at least 2 hours out walking the boys. Lovely romantic retreat, for getting away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Would definitely recommend.

    A bit more precise distance from the A5 would be helpful 'A Country Mile!' The owners were friendly and unobtrusive, but available if needed. Very secure garden for dogs with local paths available from right outside the door. Very comfortable cottage for a couple/very good friends!.

  • "We were disappointed with the accommodation,it had been very neglected and cleaning not at a good standard especially the kitchen which my husband spent a good hour cleaning!"

    We could have complained at the time but didn't want to cause a scene as the owners seemed genuine and really nice people. Moyra did actually give the impression that it was too much and was thinking of cutting back on the rentals. We couldn't understand all the positive feedbacks in the guest book,they were obviously seeing something different to us! We have been self catering for well over 20years in various areas and properties so we do know there are sometimes difficulties. We have decided that in the future we'll be sticking with what we know,there are 2 properties we go to on a regular basis.

About the location


Llanberis 4 miles; Bangor 4 miles.

Pentir is a scattered hamlet with an excellent pub, situated on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park between the famous town of Llanberis and the University City of Bangor. Llanberis has excellent places to eat and drink, fabulous shopping, and is dominated by the grandeur of the Snowdon Massif. It is renowned as 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 the Snowdonia Mountain Railway, or on foot along one of the many routes to the summit. 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 and Plas Newydd. With Anglesey and all of the North Wales coastline within easy reach, this is an excellent holiday location.
