  • "We really liked this cottage - it was spacious and well-equipped (apart from one or two items: a colander, and bin bags, but this was no great problem)."

    Good quality furniture and equipment. Beds were cosy and warm. The views of the coast and sunset were superb (seats and table outside very well placed). We are already planning our next trip.

  • "What a fantastic place!"

    Clean and well equipped, with the most spectacular views! Location was great for visiting Snowdonia, Llan Peninsula, Anglesey and Llandudno, and we would recommend visiting the Anglesey Arms on Caernarfon’s Harbour we made our ‘local’. So rare to find a baby and dog friendly property that ticks all the boxes! We would certainly look to book again!

  • "Great property in a fantastic location."

    Got used to cooking on the range after a few days. My only quibble is the sofa bed, would have been better with a normal single bed as it was uncomfortable even for a child. All in all very happy

  • "We had a really good week in the cottage, so much so we will likely book again for next year."

    It would have been better had the pint of milk left for us not been off (it was within a day of expiry) and the grass in the garden not been so long but otherwise thoroughly recommend others to stay.

  • "The large bed was uncomfortable, the TV was Internet which is Vodafone, it kept losing the line."

    I have had personal problems with them at home.

    Very secure for our dogs and the house was just so cosy. Wouldn’t change anything except maybe the addition of a DAB radio.

  • "The pictures do not do it justice, it’s beautiful inside and out."

    Fabulous location , perfect for children and exploring the area. Great facilities like dish washer tablets, iron etc. Very comfy beds and fabulous fire in the evening. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to stay in a quiet area but wanting to be close enough for exploring wales.

  • "We had an absolutely fabulous holiday ay Penrallt Fawr."

    It was remote enough to make it enjoyable but not too remote. Everything was sparkling clean, there was a lovely oil range in the kitchen that also warmed the house. The kitchen was fully equipped with all amenities and well stocked. Everything was really cosy and any problems were sorted immediately. The area is amazing 10 minutes from the Snowdon Rangers, 15 minutes from the sea. Cant wait to visit here again.

The property

Waunfawr 2.5 miles.

Perched on the rural outskirts of Rhosgadfan near Waunfawr in Gwynedd, is this charming 18th century Welsh longhouse, Penrallt Fawr.

All-ground-floor and sleeping up to six guests, Penrallt Fawr is a splendid pet-friendly dwelling, enjoying views out towards Caernarfon Castle and within close proximity to Eryri National Park (Snowdonia).

Ample off-road parking awaits you at Penrallt Fawr, so why not take some time to enjoy the panoramic views, before stepping into the spacious kitchen/diner, with its original feature beams, where you will have all you need to create culinary delights for your guests to enjoy at the dining table.

Be welcomed into the homely sitting room, where you can grab some popcorn and enjoy a family film night as the wood burning stove crackles nearby.

As the evening grows darker, retire to one of three tastefully decorated bedrooms, a king-size, a 2' 6'' twin with zip/link which can be made up as a double on request, and a room with a single sofa bed (suitable for a child), ensuring flexible sleeping arrangements for all parties.

Pour in the bubbles and enjoy a soothing bath after a long day of exploring, as your pyjamas warm on the heated towel rail.

Prepare a picnic to enjoy on the large front lawn and watch the children play, as you eat surrounded by nature.

Explore your local surroundings with your first stop being the quaint nearby village of Waunfawr, home to the Snowdonia Parc Campsite, where you can sample the local ales in the award-winning on site pub and microbrewery.

For the thrill-seekers Eryri National Park (Snowdonia) is home to a wealth of activities guaranteed to get your heart racing, from a variety of hikes with incomparable views to the Zip World Fforest, where you can zoom through the woodlands on the alpine coaster or play around in the Tree Top Nets!

There is also excellent walking and cycling straight onto the moorland from the gates of Penrallt Fawr.

If you can tear yourself away, visit the well-known town of Caernarfon, famous for its Cadw Heritage Castle and impressive views overlooking the Menai Strait.

Take a tour of the castle, which houses The Royal Welsh Fusiliers Museum and on-site exhibitions and take time to visit Segontium Roman Fort, play a few rounds of golf or enjoy a climb at the Beacon Climbing Centre.

Visit Cae'r Gors in Rhosgadfan, the childhood home of Kate Roberts, the Queen of Welsh literature.

Rhosgadfan and the surrounding quarries were also the location for the filming of Snowdonia 1890 aired on BBC Wales.

Be sure to see the delightful village of Llanberis, where you can enjoy scenic rides on a steam train and soak up the glorious views of the Welsh countryside.

Make Penrallt Fawr your family getaway to North Wales for a truly unforgettable trip with plenty to do for the whole family.
