  • "Absolutely amazing holiday."

    We didn’t want to leave! The hobbit house was above and beyond what we expected. The interior was super clean, the exterior was mind blowing from seeing red kites circling, to sheep and lambs in the field saying hello, squirrels and an abundance of wild pheasants. Also Tornado jets going up the valley. The bed was so comfortable we slept for hours, sat on the sofa watching the wildlife and not forgetting the hot tub! 7* at night and sat in a hot bath watching the stars! We met the family who run it who were brilliant. They even brought my partners birthday present up to us delivered by Amazon! Can’t wait to come back for another amazing week. Thank you

  • "Unfortunately there was a strong smell of damp in the property."

    I would suggest a more comfortable sofa and maybe some soft lighting for the evening and maybe a rug in the lounge area, as the underfloor heating doesn't extend to that bit. The bathroom door was slightly warped and didn't close properly. The surround area is stunning.

  • "Really enjoyed our New Year stay at Nant y Garnedd."

    Once we had clarified the location with the owner, the sat nav took us straight to the front door. Our meetings with the owner were very pleasant and they helped us with the hot tub one afternoon and ensured it was ready for use when we arrived on arrival day. They also provided us with extra logs so we could enjoy it on our last full day. The property was very comfortable with modern facilities. The bed was out of this world comfortable and the underfloor heating made for pleasant steps out of the bed in the morning before donning our slippers. There was a smell of damp within the property, particularly around the fridge and there was a feeling of damp in the bathroom, which was noticeable underfoot and on the toilet cistern. We utilised scented candles to combat the smell as best we could, and tried to keep ventilation flowing throughout the property. The property was equipped with a dehumidifier which we kept on for the duration and the kitchen and bathroom both had extraction fans which we used when cooking and during/after showering to help. The hot tub was a nice little touch, especially being a wood burning hot tub. We did find however that we couldn't get it quite to temperature that we could fully enjoying, finding ourselves sitting around the stove side of the tub more often than not. However, it was deep into winter so understand the tub was working overtime. All in all we would definitely recommend the property to our friends and family who are after complete escapism, but if the damp issue could be worked on a little more this would get a 10/10.

  • "The cabin is absolutely gorgeous, I really enjoyed staying here The only suggestion I would make is maybe provide mood lighting as the lighting was a bit too bright, and a softer tone or the ability to control the brightness of the lighting would make the stay exceptional."

  • "What a beautiful and unique place to stay."

    We loved the property and it's quirkiness. It was beautiful and clean and comfortable. The welcome bottle of prosecco and crisps and treats was a lovely touch! It was a little smaller than we imagined but it was fine. It would have been good to have curtains on the living room for privacy and a coffee table. It was a little more remote than we had envisaged also but a great place to stay.

  • "What a beautiful part of Wales."

    The 'hobbit' cottage was amazing and loved by ourselves and our two granddaughters age 9 and 12. So peaceful and the views were magnificent. The hot tub was used daily and very relaxing in such superb surroundings. Would love to go again sometime

  • "Love this place."

    Very private . Daily visits by sheep which is fun. Hosts are very friendly and very helpful. Hot tub was amazing. We did drive past because we came from the other direction . (What 3 words would have been handy.) The cooker and hob was easy to use. Plates and glass ect were high end items/brands , which is unusual for a holiday let . it made it all the more special. We had an amazing time. Definable recommend the Hobbit Hole for any special occasion or romantic get away.

    Compact but well laid out! Great space for 2 adults with plenty outside space. Lots of extra details which make the stay perfect. Great place to visit for total relaxation. The only thing I would say is the fridge is quite small and could only fit a few days fresh food. This was not an issue for us as we were our daily and there are lovely places to eat 20 minutes away. Highly recommend for a different experience! 5/5

A fantastic base for a family of four or couples, Nant y Garnedd is a unique stay, owing to its fairy-style accommodation, remoteness and outstanding views of southern Eryri's (Snowdonia's) mountains.

Make your way over to the kitchen, where you can enjoy rustling up delicious dishes with the range of appliances available, to be enjoyed at the sleek breakfast bar.

Why not take dinner out to the private garden in the warmer months, where it can be savoured as an alfresco affair within the sheltered decking?

Afterward, continue to the sitting area, where you can enjoy a movie night on the Smart TV, before opening out the corner sofa into a sofa bed to catch your rest.

The hut is also home to a charming King bedroom, where you can admire the sights in the mornings before wandering over to the fabulously fitted shower room for an invigorating soak.

Completing this quirky hut's facilities is a luxurious, oak barrel hot tub, where you can savour a relaxing dip before or after a busy day of exploring Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park.
