    It has the most wonderful view and location. The kitchen and cottage was stocked with all the things we needed. I would recommend it to others and would like to go back there!

  • "A superb, cosy property in a fabulous location."

    Extremely clean and well presented with everything that we needed. The views, swings in the garden for the kids and wood burning stove made it a bit special.

  • "What a fantastic and well equipped cottage."

    My son loved the fact that you can see Mount Snowdon from the garden and looked spectacular with it’s snowy top. This cottage is perfectly located for site seeing, as everything is about a 30 minute drive away. I would definitely recommend Tan Meredydd, and would book again.

  • "Everything was perfect."

    The secluded location, the cosy welcoming feeling as soon as you walked through the door. It was a nice little suprise to find we had been left a lovely bottle of wine which is just what you needed after a long journey, sat in front of the fire with the amazing view of the mountains through the window.

  • "The location is quite remote, however if you are looking for a peaceful holiday then this is the place to be."

    Great base for serious walkers.

  • "The cottage was very nice, clean and comfortable but the stairs up to the twin bedroom were very narrow and steep, so my son who has slight mobility problems was unable to go up them."

    Fortunately, as the bathroom was downstairs, he didn't have to go up them. My husband and I used the twin room and our son had the double bed downstairs. I think you should mention in the information about the cottage that the stairs aren't suitable for people with mobility problems. The location was really good, scenic and quiet.

  • "I booked last minute on the day and Ashleigh in the call centre was great."

    The location was perfect and there was nothing needed as everything was stocked and available. Restful and very quiet. If after a remote location to get away from it all but close enough to get into the hills then this is ideal

  • "We had a wonderful week in Snowdonia."

    The cottage is extremely well equipped and furnished, and its location is perfect for trips out around Snowdonia and beyond. It is very peaceful and frequented by numerous bird species (if you fill the feeder :) There is a pub called the Cwellyn Arms not far away at Rhyd Ddu, which serves excellent food and beers. We thoroughly recommend this cottage.

  • "Lovely cottage clean and well decorated throughout!"

    Lots of children’s games which my 7 and 9 year old enjoyed on a wet day. Well placed to explore North Wales. My children enjoyed climbing the mountain “in the back garden”! Stone flooring downstairs so would recommend taking slippers or indoor shoes.

  • "A fantastic little cottage in the most idyllic of locations."

    Newly refurbed and well thought out layout to make the most of all available space it's a Tardis! Even had a tiny bit of Wi-Fi. A perfect location for getting away from it all and exploring Snowdonia. Highly recommended.

The property

Nestling in the Nantlle Valley, surrounded by dramatic, steep hillsides and watched over by Snowdon, Tan Meredydd is a perfectly located holiday cottage for outdoor pursuit enthusiasts.

Nantlle Valley has so much to offer from gentle walks to more challenging ridges, and there's also the challenge of Snowdon itself! In the sitting room, comfy sofas are set around a wood burning stove, TV and Blu Ray DVD.

There is also a DAB radio and good selection of DVDs. The kitchen has an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, fridge with ice compartment, microwave, wood burning range oven and a table with benches.

There is a door to rear courtyard. On the ground floor there is a double bedroom and a bathroom which has a bath with shower over, loo and wash hand basin. Upstairs there is a twin bedroom. There is a second small 'chill out' area upstairs with books and a reading chair with views through the velux windows over the opposite mountain ridge and a TV (to play DVDs only). There is a large enclosed garden laid to lawn, and shrubs and fruit bushes to the front with a rustic swing set.

To the rear is a large patio area with garden furniture.

There is an anchor panel for bikes and parking for 3 cars on the driveway. Mountains, forests, rivers, lakes, beaches and historic towns are all easily accessible from Tan Meredydd.

Attractions such as the Welsh Highland Railway, Caernarfon castle, Zip World and Bounce Below are also just a short drive away.

This charming holiday cottage has been sympathetically restored and is in keeping with its surroundings.

The wood burning stove in the sitting room and the wood-burning range in the kitchen/diner plus storage heaters make Tan Meredydd an all-year-round destination. Please note that the private water supply at the cottage is from a spring using a reverse UV osmosis system and is perfectly safe to drink. While the property does not allow dogs it is not suitable for guests with pet allergies.

About the location


Mynydd Drws y Coed is set on the Nantlle Ridge, part of the Snowdonia National Park. Very popular with climbers and scramblers alike, although you do need a good head for heights. The valley below is ideal for cycling and walking if you don't fancy the heady heights of the ridge.
