    “This was my fifth time to the cottage.”

    The view of course is wonderful but over the years the already basic cottage has clearly suffered from want of investment. The lighting hasn’t been sorted out. The hob works but is difficult to control...it needs replacing. The crockery is poor and tired. Only two normal sized wine glasses left....poor. The bed linen needs replacing ....poor quality and too old and thin. The towels need boiling and checking for stains. Dusty old food bottles left by previous occupants should be thrown ...

    The view of course is wonderful but over the years the already basic cottage has clearly suffered from want of investment. The lighting hasn’t been sorted out. The hob works but is difficult to control...it needs replacing. The crockery is poor and tired. Only two normal sized wine glasses left....poor. The bed linen needs replacing ....poor quality and too old and thin. The towels need boiling and checking for stains. Dusty old food bottles left by previous occupants should be thrown out...they’re just grubby and emphasise that the place generally needs a good deep clean and a lick of paint. And why is there still a stick for the electricity....pretty low class and irritating. It seems that more is being taken financially than given which is a shame because the cottage is inherently good quality and in an outstanding location. It always feels warm and welcoming when I arrive but it isn’t on that I have to spend the first two hours cleaning after a 6 hour drive just so that I can relax and enjoy my stay. Others have commented on this before and although in part it was better on arrival this time....the bath was dirty, the toilet mat clearly was filthy and the shower mat didn’t look clean either. The phone...literally brown with dirt....I gave that a good clean and disinfect before using. I love Pant Lleni and the broader lack of facilities doesn’t bother me but continuing grubbiness and lack of basic healthy conditions does. Come on Menai...time to get this sorted!

The property

In the heart of Snowdonia, this picturesque stone holiday cottage has stunning views of the lake and mountains.

Facing down the valley, it looks across Lake Gwynant to the mountains that rise from the shore.

This fantastic view can be enjoyed from the fireside or the garden. The kitchen has a Stanley range (like an Aga) to provide cooking, central heating and hot water.

There is also an electric hob, a microwave and a fridge with ice box.

A dining/breakfast area is to one side. The beamed sitting room is a bright and welcoming room with polished wooden floors, bright rugs and a window seat in a deep bay where you can sit and admire the views. There is a downstairs bathroom with an electric shower over the bath, wash basin and loo.

The utility room has a washing machine. Upstairs are two bedrooms.

The double room looks across the lake and valley and the twin room has mountain views. The garden has a sunny terrace with a barbecue and picnic table. Please note, that typical of many remote, rural properties, access is by a rough track. Pantlleni is very much a simplistic retreat, best suited to those who truly enjoy and appreciate the history and unique charm of traditional Welsh stone cottages.

You won't find the latest mod-cons or furnishings, but if you don't mind getting back to the basic necessities you will certainly find a sense of relaxation from the peaceful surroundings of this old cottage.

Step outside and breathe in the fresh mountain air.

Why not pack a picnic and while away a warm summers day by the picturesque Llyn Gwynant?

You could even take a paddleboard or canoe on the lake if you're feeling particularly adventurous! Close to Llanberis, Capel Curig and Beddgelert, Pantlleni is perfectly placed for exploring Snowdonia by car, or for walking the many footpaths that lead to the peaks and along the valley.

About half an hour's drive away are the sandy beaches of Anglesey and the Llŷn Peninsula, and golf, horse riding and fishing are also close by.

Beddgelert 3.5 miles; Porthmadog 10 miles; Betws-y-Coed 13 miles.

The tiny hamlet of Nant Gwynant is situated in the Nant Gwynant Valley, surrounded by some of the most dramatic and beautiful scenery in the whole of the Snowdonia National Park. Overlooked by the Snowdon, Yr Aran and Moel Hebog mountains and with wonderful wooded valleys, towering rocky slopes, hidden lakes and waterfalls all providing magnificent views, this is a fantastic location for anyone who enjoys the outdoors. Enjoy climbing, walking and mountain biking, with one of the main routes for ascending Snowdon, via the famous Watkin Path, starting in the valley. Nearby is Beddgelert, regarded as one of the most attractive villages in the United Kingdom and named after the famous legend of Gelert the dog. This lovely riverside village boasts quality pubs and eating houses as well as excellent outdoor pursuit centres, offering a variety of activities. Close by are wonderful beaches, castles, National Trust properties, slate caverns, mountain railways and the Portmeirion Italianate Village.
