  • "I really loved the property and the way which is was furnished."

    Comfortable and homely. A couple of things that would help, a sheet to show you how things worked, and WIFI password. The router by the TV had the wires taped into the back so it was really tricky to get it to work. Toilet seat needed adjustment, and only one side of the toaster was working. We took our dog, but the grass was so long that i had to watch her very carefully to see if she went to the toilet, otherwise you would never see it. I would recommend though, the views were stunning.

  • "Although the description of the cottage on the website was not inaccurate, the property maintenance was poor."

    The bath tap was faulty, the shower area needed resealing as the sealant was very mouldy, the grass had not been cut for weeks and the aerial for terrestrial tv did not work (and was held together with masking tape!). There was no information about the cottage or the area, and I had to phone then message the owner to even get a wifi password. There were no instructions about how to leave the cottage or where to leave rubbish. There were no mattress protectors on the beds or on most of the pillows. With a little effort the cottage could be great- it feels like it has been initially fitted to a good standard but then is sliding to dilapidation along with the general area of the whole complex.

  • "Spacious property for the 2 of us, comfortable bed."

    Disappointed with general maintenance and cleanliness. Bathroom especially needs some tlc - cold tap on bath broken, toilet seat wobbly. Castor on chair in lounge missing. Kitchen extractor fan dripping with oil onto hob. A welcome pack would be handy, certainly need wifi details and password (had to phone the host to obtain). Website listing needs to advise that road to property is very narrow and pot-holed Did not see host during stay.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Ella's escape and would certainly consider using it again."

    Clean, functional, pleasant and well located for mountain activities in Snowdonia whilst also being close to facilities in Bangor. The garden was also ideal for dogs as it is enclosed (as long as your dog is not small!). One improvement that could be made is some welcome instructions detailing Wi-Fi password and how to operate the boiler so that one can quickly settle in when arriving.

Walking into the space and you are greeted by a bright and airy living area with a feature vaulted ceiling adding to the feel of light and space.

The extensive seating area has been positioned to make the most of the truly captivating countryside views from the floor-to-ceiling windows, making this the ideal spot for chilling out, soaking up the views, watching some TV and just enjoying spending time together.

When guests get hungry, the rustic-style kitchen is all set up ready for the chef in the party to create delicious food for everyone and when it’s time to eat, for an informal option take a stool at the cool breakfast bar or enjoy leisurely meals together at the sleek dining area which offers great views to ensure there’s always something to talk about at the dining table.

Step outside onto the private garden area and enjoy time eating and drinking alfresco, before getting ready for bed with a relaxing soak in the bath or a quick dip in the shower.

About the location


Menai Bridge 2.5 miles; Beaumaris 7 miles; Caernarfon 10 miles; Llanberis 11 miles.

Bangor is a university town on the North Wales coast with a large range of shops, bars and restaurants. It is the main crossing point for the Isle of Anglesey with two road bridges across the Menai Strait. Across the water, the castle and pier at Beaumaris make a lovely day out, or you can catch a boat to enjoy a trip out to Puffin Island. The Anglesey Coastal Path takes in beautiful scenery, and the island is home to many fine beaches including Rhosneigr, Trearddur Bay and Red Wharf Bay. The NT mansion Plas Newydd is on the island, while on the mainland further NT properties can be found including Penrhyn Castle and Bodnant Gardens. The spectacular mountains and lakes of Snowdonia are just a short drive way, with plenty of castles, beaches and other attractions on offer in this wonderful region. Bangor and the Menai Straits really do offer the best of both worlds!
