  • "Arrived after a very long drive to a beautiful cottage, very clean and a voucher to a local pizza place and shop which was a lovely surprise."

    Only a few miles away and the pizzas were amazing, really good atmosphere too. The surrounding area is gorgeous and the cottage is perfect location to get to lots of activities, beauty spots and Snowdon. Couldn't recommend this cottage enough and the stone floors are to die for. We will definately be returning Catie, Steve, Mollie and Jaxx Xx

  • "Peniel Cottage was very nice in all respects, both for us and our dog."

    What made it stand out, from the many cottages that we have used before (not with Sykes), was the standard of cleanliness on arrival.

  • "A lovely cosy cottage in a beautiful and quiet hamlet, within a few miles of the lovely village of Beddgelert."

    The cottage was very clean and well equipped. Although the cottage had all modern facilities, including a modern kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine etc, a downstairs wet room, Wi-Fi etc, it still maintained the feeling of a traditional cottage. There was plenty of information on things to do, maps, books, games etc. There was even a dog hamper, complete with dog blanket and biscuits, so even our dog was happy! The owners were very friendly and helpful, particularly with helping us with the stove burner. We had everything we needed for a peaceful and relaxing stay, and would definitely recommend.

    Dear all, A huge THANK YOU! it was our pleasure to welcome you all and have you as our guests in Peniel Cottage. It was lovely to meet you and of course Lottie the dog too. Thank you for the great comments, we really appreciate you choosing to stay with us & your recommendations. Peniel cottage is well equipped as it was originally our home so it was designed with comfort in mind and is larger than the average two bed cottage as we had the modern extension on the back to house the full size kitchen & wet room. It retains character as Peniel cottage is a listed building, one of three Quarrymen's cottages, so we needed to keep (& add back in during the many years of renovations) all of the original features. We are SO GLAD you love it as we do! THANK YOU AGAIN Darren & Jane Property Owner

  • "Only negative point is the parking."

    You have to park on the lane opposite the cottage with your car right up against a stone wall to ensure other road users can still pass by.

    Thank you Kevin, for the 10/10 and lovely comments in the guest book. We really appreciate you choosing to stay with us and it was great chatting to you finding out what you planned to do during your holiday with us. Looking forward to welcoming you all back. Darren & Jane Property Owner

    Finishing touches made it extra special….the Barra brith left for us and dog biscuits and blanket. The traditional style decor and multi fuel stove meant it was cozy and welcoming. The garden being fully enclosed was perfect for our dog.

    The cottage was very clean and the little touches like the dog treats and blankets as well as the cake and chocolates left for us were lovely. We did contact the owners Darren and Jane and they were very helpful and offered to come to the cottage as they live close but this wasn’t needed.

    The owners were very friendly in their communication and had clearly gone to great efforts to ensure the cottage was spotlessly clean. The location was perfect - peaceful but with lots of local walks and places to visit. In summary - we had a fabulous time and would highly recommend the cottage.

    Everything we needed was provided, and more. We especially loved the little added extras such as the dog basket and welcome hamper. The cottage was beautifully maintained and presented, spotlessly clean, and the beds and sofas were very comfortable. The location was also perfect for us with stunning walks straight from the house and so many lovely places to visit just a short distance away. The owners very very helpful and friendly when we contacted them and had also provided a very extensive welcome and information pack which came in handy. We didn't want to leave and will definitely return.

  • "Peniel exceeded our expectations, it is a beautiful cottage sympathetically furnished and I instantly feel in love with it."

    The cottage has a fantastic equipped kitchen with dishwasher something I don't have at home! The bedrooms are standard but the beds and bedding were so comfortable it made it so difficult to get up in the mornings because I was so cosy and snug. The cleanliness of the cottage was superb not a speck of dust. The only negative I can find is the having to light the fire to provide hot water and heating but that's just a personal issue. There are electric heaters and an immersion heater. Hoping to return asap

The property

Beddgelert 2 miles.

This traditional quarryman's cottage is surrounded by wonderful countryside and rests just two miles from the thriving village of Beddgelert, in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park.

Nestled down a quiet lane, Peniel Cottage is perfect for two couples in need of a relaxing getaway with lots of outdoor exploration from the doorstep.

Decorated in a homely style, the property boasts character features and attributes, combined with a modern twist, forming a comfortable accommodation to welcome your return after a day exploring the area.

Sink into the sofas in the cosy living room, finished with slate flagstone flooring and beamed ceiling, this space is perfect for curling up by the woodburner.

Adjoining this setup is a dining table which offers ample seating for all to gather at mealtimes.

Three steps down will take you into the airy kitchen, featuring a high pitched ceiling and lots of glazing to bring the light in, and equipped with several integrated appliances to ensure a pleasant cooking experience.

The two bedrooms are well appointed with double beds and ample storage to store your personal belongings.

Upstairs also plays host to the lovely family bathroom with elegant roll top bath so you can enjoy a relaxing soak to round off your evening.

Should you prefer a shower to prepare for the day, there is a shower room on the ground floor.

The garden enjoys a sunny aspect where you can sip on your morning coffee while contemplating the day’s activities; perhaps a walk up the surrounding mountains will be on your agenda?

From the cottage there is so much to see and do in the area, venture doorstep walks and cycle trails or stroll down the lane to the Welsh Highland Railway station and catch the train to Beddgelert or visit the historic town of Caernarfon, with its iconic castle, harbour and selection of shops and tea rooms.

This charming cottage is a perfect base for couples or families to enjoy all-year-round.

About the location


Porthmadog 6 miles; Caernarfon 13 miles.

The picturesque village of Beddgelert lies in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park at the foot of Mount Snowdon. Beddgelert is a bustling village with arts and craft shops, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants, centred around the Afon Glaslyn river. A 20 minute stroll along the river will take you to the Aberglaslyn Pass, one of North Wales’ most famous beauty spots. The Welsh Highland Steam Railway passes through the village on its journey from Porthmadog to Caernarfon. Beddgelert is famed for its monument to the Welsh Prince Llewelyn's dog, whom the Prince killed thinking it had attacked and killed his son, only to discover afterwards it had been defending his son from a savage wolf attack. With Porthmadog, Portmeirion, Borth y Gest and the whole of the Llyn Peninsula easily reached, this is an ideal location for a Welsh holiday.
