  • "The property was in a great position overlooking countryside and views over Anglesey."

    The cottage was very clean and well equipped with everything we needed. The welcome pack was a lovely surprise and the owners came to meet us to make sure we had everything for our needs. Our dog enjoyed running around in the paddock and was fascinated by the sheep in the next field. Car parking was off road at the side of the property, enough room for two cars. A really lovely comfortable holiday home. Will definitely return one day.

    Thank you for your kind comments. We look forward to seeing you again one day. Property Owner

  • "This was my second time at lovely Fron Deg."

    The cottage is so well thought-out with every practical thing you could possibly need. It gets harder to find holiday cottages elsewhere when you've stayed in one as perfect as this. There are so many lovely walks to enjoy from the doorstep and then you can surely never tire of the views from the front windows. I wish I could have stayed for months!

    Thank you for your lovely comments. It was nice to welcome you back. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was very clean, comfortable and well thought out, being renovated especially as a holiday cottage: everything you could need and more was provided for a perfect holiday, even in January."

    My dog loved charging about in the secure garden and licking the horses' noses; I loved looking at the view and enjoyed many colourful dawns and sunsets from the living room window. The owners live just behind the cottage and are very friendly and helpful.

    Thank you for your lovely comments. We look forward to seeing you again. Property Owner

    We loved the wood burner and scenic views most. The dog loved the exercise paddock at the front of the cottage. The owners are helpful and responsive and left a welcome pack of supplies for us on arrival. We will definitely return.

  • "Wonderful cottage, cosy and comfortable with stunning views and an ideal base for exploring North Wales and Anglesey."

    Our dog enjoyed playing in the enclosed paddock and meeting the friendly horses in the field next door. Very considerate owners who left a fantastic welcome pack for us all and the cottage was warm and welcoming for our arrival over the Christmas break including tasteful Christmas decorations. We would love to return again.

    Frondeg has everything you will ever need for your holiday. Frondeg is a great base for all North Wales attractions only being 15-30 mins drive away.

  • "Firstly the communication from the owners of the cottage was superb."

    The location of the cottage was great, towards the top of the village with wonderful views. The outside space was fab - my kids (and our dog) loved playing in the paddock and saying hello to the horses in the neighbouring field. The interior was sparkly clean upon arrival with a helpful welcome pack left by the owners. The facilities were excellent and the beds super comfy! The only negative of our holiday was the weather!! Would highly recommend this cottage as a place to stay. We will definitely be returning.

  • "The views and location were truly stunning Frondeg was in an excellent location for walking or touring."

    The Accomodation is finished to a lovely standard and the kitchen is well equipped if you prefer to cook. We especially loved the amazing panoramic views and watching the sunsets from the picture window and conservatory. It really made our holiday special. The hosts were helpful friendly and welcoming. The welcome basket was full of goodies for us and our dog. Having the paddock for dog to run and play in was yet another extra feature that made our stay truly lovely. Could not have wished for more. We have booked again for next year!

    The welcome pack was a nice touch as well. Einir provided excellent communication and was thoughtful to let us know where we could find outdoor furniture on a sunny day. Our toddler absolutely loved the house and garden, interacting with the animals next door. The kitchen is well equipped for any of your cooking needs. Fantastic stay, we highly recommend and look forward to returning in the future.

    It was fixed the following day however the radiators were extremely noisy all night. we reported this issue and the owners sent someone around the next day. Still this problem was not fixed and we had a very loud radiator all night throughout our stay.

  • "Frondeg is the best holiday cottage we have stayed in."

    Our expectations were exceeded the moment we opened the door as the bungalow smelt so fresh and clean. It was spotless, warm and so comfortable. We had absolutely everything we could possibly need as Hefin and Einir had gone to so much trouble and given a great deal of thought into making our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Our welcome gifts were thoughtful and meant we didn't need to find shops to get us started and instead relaxed with a cup of tea and slice of Bara Brith. Even Lily our golden retriever had treats! The bungalow is so convenient for exploring Anglesey and Snowdonia. We were at the foot of Snowdon within ten minutes and also did some lovely walks from the door including walking into Bangor and getting the bus back which stops opposite the house. The garden is beautiful, I took my watercolours and could have spent the week painting flowers and scenery. It's also a dog's holiday in itself as Lily loved racing around the field which was all enclosed and made friends with the horses in the adjoining field. Everything is beautifully kept and it was a pleasure to sit in the conservatory and admire the views across the fields, over Bangor and to the sea. Thank you for making our holiday so relaxing and memorable. We look forward to coming back.

  • "Frondeg was so beautiful."

    Everything in the house was of top quality, super clean and wonderfully comfortable. The gardens were beautiful and having our own paddock was the icing on the cake. The views across to the Menaii Straits was spectacular and the mountains lay just behind us. There were friendly horses in the field next to us and every day they came to say hello and to receive a carrot or apple. The location was perfect. We seemed to be no more than 5 miles from so many gorgeous areas - Anglesey, Snowdonia, Caernarfon and many more. We have enjoyed many Sykes cottages over the years, but this one was truly perfect in every way.

    Our expectations were far exceeded. Communication from the owners was excellent. They even popped over to see if we had settled in okay. The accommodation is immaculate, spacious, warm and very comfortable. The owners have literally thought of everything to make Frondeg 'home from home'. There is even a slow cooker and George Foreman Grill! The welcome pack included eggs, milk, bread, chocolates, cakes and even treats for our Border Collie who loved the space outside to run up and down with her Frisbee. The front and back gardens are completely secure. The views are incredible. We certainly hope to return next year.

    Welcome tray was the best I've ever come across (Wine, cake, biscuits, dog treats, milk, tea, coffee...and more). Dog towels provided was a nice touch. Super clean and well furnished with some stylish pieces. Access to Amazon Fire Stick was an unexpected bonus although occasionally the internet speeds weren't sufficient to support this at the same time as supporting our own devices.

About the location


Bangor 5 miles; Caernarfon 7 miles.

Rhiwlas is a traditional Welsh village set on the foothills of the Snowdonia Mountain range with its own primary school and within easy access from the A55 Expressway, 4 miles from the city of Bangor with its University and with the famous town of Llanberis just 6 miles away. Llanberis offers 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 the entire North Wales coastline within easy reach, Rhiwlas is an excellent holiday location.
