    The property is on the A5 which is a busy road, but we were aware of that when booking so the traffic noise did not bother us. There was ample parking, 3 spaces in total which fit a large family car on the drive, a small car at the back and a camper van at the side! I spoke to the lovely hosts a few days before arrive to obtain the key code, they were really helpful in giving advice about the house and the local area. On arrival, we were able to use the key code to let ourselves in, very convenient! The property was absolutely stunning and we were greeted by one of the best welcome hampers I've ever seen. There was also a nice welcome card left for us, which was a really nice personal touch. A folder was left out which gave further information on the local area, things to do and guidance on how to work the oven and central heating. Rather useful when staying with a large party. Overall a pleasant stay in a house I could quite happily live in, no complaints from us!

The property

Step in the door, kick off your shoes and walk into the spacious living room with a large L-shaped sofa, big enough to sit five people, a small sofa and the new hardwood flooring.

The cottage retains its wealth of character with the large stone chimney breast which houses a woodburning stove, perfect for settling down at night with the family and watching a movie on the TV.

The wonderfully appointed kitchen has many white modern cabinets and units with black granite worktops and to add a splash of colours, the walls have been painted in a lovely purple shade, giving the room its charm.

The dining area has seating for up to eight people and has an attractive black brick wall, which compliments the white furnishings.

All bedrooms have been individually styled, with a simple but light decor, giving the rooms a welcoming feel.

About the location


Cerrigydrudion 2 miles, Pentrefoelas 3 miles, Betws-y-Coed 10 miles, Corwen 12 miles, Bala 13 miles, Ruthin 16.5 miles, Denbigh 19 miles, Blaenau-Ffestiniog 20 miles, Llangollen 22 miles.

Glasfryn is a tiny hamlet near Cerrigydrudion, in the area of North Wales known as Hiraethog, the Hills of Longing (or more prosaically the gorse hills), the gateway to Snowdonia. Situated on Telford’s historic turnpike route from England to Holyhead, Glasfryn is one of the highest settlements in Wales. There is a children’s playground, a pottery and a petrol station in Glasfryn and a shop and post office in the nearby village of Cerrigydrudion.
Home to rare wildlife like red squirrels, the Hiraethog moors, woodlands and lakes provide excellent cycleways and mountain bike locations. Holiday attractions such as the Fforest zipwire, the Llangollen, Bala and Festiniog steam railways, white water rafting, castles and seaside are all within easy reach by car. Just a short distance from Glasfryn is the GYG go-kart track, one of the biggest circuits in the UK, several excellent cafes and the Gilar Arms pub and restaurant.
The nearby Hiraethog Way links public footpaths and quiet lanes, and there is an abundance of walking routes based on Bala, Pentrefoelas and throughout the area, while Snowdon itself, with its many paths to the summit (including the mountain railway!) is within easy travelling distance.
