  • "Lovely cabin in a beautiful location."

    Sue and Garry could not have been more welcoming - providing helpful advice about the locality and practical tips for the cabin. The cabin is cosy and well maintained with all the practical things you need for a week away.

  • "We had an excellent stay."

    Completely fell in love with the village, beautiful views and lots of places to eat drink and browse. Great location for the activities we had booked but also lots of amazing walks with the kids during the times when we didn’t have anything booked. Sue and Gary were great, very helpful and friendly and everything was seamless. The cabin was spotless very clean and we had everything we needed. New shower and everything is the kitchen very clean and I am normally fussy. The cabin is perfect for what we needed it for. We definitely hope to be back and a big thanks to sue and Gary for such a wonderful stay.

  • "One of THE most outstanding holiday locations and accommodation we have used."

    Thanks to Sue and Garry, both of whom have great local knowledge, all of our needs were fully met including a welcome gift of local cakes, wine, tea, coffee, sugar, milk - even treats for our dog. Very clean cabin, all appliances fully working- availability of washer, tumble dryer, even dog drying towels! We chose to cook more at the cabin rather than dine out elsewhere as we couldn't tear ourselves away from the stunning view of Snowdon from our dining room table! Our dog Honey fell in love with Guto -Sue & Garry's dog and enjoyed the freedom of running about the adjoining field - we couldn't get her in the car when it was time to leave! An idyllic destination- for a week which went by too quickly. We cannot recommend this cabin and the owners hospitality enough. Thank you

    We got a little lost in the lanes, do NOT follow the GPS directions from Hotels.com, but do follow the ones in the email! We would definitely book this cottage again if we came back to Snodonia. It's homey, comfortable, with amazing views. Loved it!

    Truly lovely and relaxed holiday, although we were unlucky with the weather at times. Enough room and amenities in the cabin for me and the missus and our dog. Excellent wi-fi connection, so we could search for areas to visit. Sue & Gary are very friendly and accommodating, non-intrusive and we had no issues but if we did need them they were there all the time. There are tons of places to visit and the view from the cabin is second-to-none, facing Mount Snowden. Not many places in the area can boast this advantageous spot ! The cabin is 2 minutes the other side of the main Forest Holidays site with a shop and takeaway (great fish 'n chips). It's lovely to just walk around this park with a nice stream and walking grounds/woods. 2 miles away is the quaint village of Beddgelert and if you get chance to visit over a Sunday, drop into the Golden Fleece pub/restaurant in Tremadog and sample their excellent Sunday Roast. Beyond this Porthmadog is a nice harbour town and a few miles more is Port Meirion (although it does not allow dogs). We also dropped by the Black Rock Sands, where there is a huge beach at which you can park your car on (cost at the time was £8 all day and you can leave and return as many times as you want). Instead of driving we caught the bus into Caernarfon (about half hour ride) and what a lovely small town it is, with the Castle the main attraction and some lovely pubs ! All in all a lovely time (aside the weather) and we will have to return again !

    Sue and Gary were excellent hosts, contacting us in advance and giving clear travel instructions. On arrival Sue took us round the property explaining how everything worked and pointing out key features The welcome pack, including some dog treats, was a really nice touch. The real highlight of Snowdon Vista is the view that is stunning and spectacular whichever way you look. The location is a little isolated but if you are interested in walking or cycling in Snowdonia it is an ideal starting point.

    Felt really special to be here for a week, to be looking out at such gorgeous scenery, to be so central in Snowdonia and to have the lovely log burner on a couple of rainy days. We left the quick 45-minute walk into Beddgelert to our last day but it was so delightful we should have done it sooner! Sue was great too, welcoming and thoughtful. Would go back in a heartbeat. Thank you, Sue!

The cabin itself is immaculately clean, warm, and cosy and caters to all your needs. Sue and Gary are first-class hosts. We've had the best time here. So much so that we have booked again to return later in the year.

  • "We all completely fell in love with Snowdon Vista Cabin!"

    The cabin completely met our needs, was very comfortable, clean and well stocked with the essentials (including lots of treats!), was warm despite freezing temperatures outside and most importantly has the most sensational views of the Snowdon range you could possibly ask for. The dogs loved the large enclosed field right outside to run around in and you can do wonderful walks straight from the door (including walking into Beddgelert) which is something we love to be able to do. Sue and Gary are the kindest, most generous hosts imaginable - we had car trouble whilst there and they bent over backwards to help us sort it out. It turns out that, when you're having difficulties, it is very handy to have your hosts nearby! Thank you so much to you both and we will definitely be back!

    The first impression on entering the property is how cosy it looks. This is our second stay at this property. The views are stunning. You have all the amenities you need. Small areas need a bit of TLC but the views make up for that. Prices in the Restaurants have gone through the roof so we ate at the cottage most nights. Sully our Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier loved it as he had so much space to run wild in. Beddgelert is stunning. Just book it and enjoy the views, you will not be disappointed.

  • "This is a lovely cabin for adults who love walking."

    I would say that in our opinion it isn’t really suitable for toddlers, because of hazards outside such as steep steps down to the garden area, which should really be made clear on the listing. The facilities have a lower score for a couple of reasons; I requested a cot and high chair for our 2 year old, which initially weren’t there but as the owners are next door they quickly provided these. Unfortunately the cot did not have a mattress, so our daughter slept on a folded duvet, which wasn’t ideal, so she ended up in a twin bed. The owners were extremely apologetic and have ordered a mattress for future use. Secondly, the shower was problematic, it ran cold for a few days, then we managed to get a warm but very very weak shower. Again, the owners have taken this on board and are looking into an electric shower. The location is perfect, with gorgeous views, fabulous walks and convenient for some lovely days out. The beds are very comfortable and the owners very friendly and helpful. The cabin itself is private and peaceful. There is a field next to the cabin where dogs can run which is handy. Everything was clean and spotless on arrival. The little goodies such as Welsh cakes and wine were a nice touch. If it hadn’t been for the shower and lack of mattress I would score 5/5.

    A wonderfully comfortable cabin with views of Snowdon. Walk right out the door and up the hill to a beautiful lake, or simply sit and enjoy the view. The kitchen may be compact but is perfectly adequate for cooking up dinner, to be enjoyed with panoramic views. Owners (Sue, Garry and Guto the dog) are very helpful and friendly while being totally unobtrusive. While the cabin is adjacent to their property we felt beautifully isolated which is exactly what we wanted. There is a TV but with the vista in front of us we never got close to turning it on. Beddgelert village is a 5 min drive or a bit of a walk in the evenings if you are looking for a pub/restaurant (approx 30mins). Overall we cannot recommend Snowdon Vista highly enough and will definitely be re-booking.

    Warm and comfortable cabin with all facilities. Excellent for our dogs, loved being able to roam in surrounding field with no leads!! Well away from roads, so stress free for us. Cabin is about a twenty minute drive from Porthmadog, where there is a largeTesco, and the town is delightful (lots of charity shops too, which suited mum!!). Having owners living nearby is always handy for any problems - for us, it was with one of our cars - they very kindly lent my dad the tools to fix it, and pointed us in the direction of a car parts supplier, instead of having to take to a garage!! Owners have a dedicated staff, trained up for covid situation, who do the 'changeover', and hand sanitizer is supplied if you haven't brought your own. They gave instructions of what we needed to do on leaving - putting bedding and linen in bags etc. and distanced when we saw them while we were there. Hopefully if we can go again in future, when all this us over, we can shake their hands and thank them for a wonderful, stress free, relaxed holiday. Peter Brown.

    The cabin was pristine (Covid professional cleaning service used before our arrival) and comfortable. Everything in good working order and all necessary equipment to hand. (No cafetière but owners quickly provided their own filter coffee maker!) Wine and welsh cakes provided on arrival and basics...tea, coffee, sugar and milk sachets provided. We took our own towels and pillows as a precaution but had no worries that everything had been done to ensure whole place was Covid free. Bathroom had no heat and no facility to dry towels in between use.Washing machine and tumble dryer for communal use in shed behind cabin.Access to cabin along winding gritted track, a little bumpy and rutted in places but perfectly manageable in medium sized family car. Small patio area at the back of the owners cottage (take your own picnic chair) and communal picnic benches at the front of owners cottage give good opportunity to enjoy the sun and the views up and down the valley.

    .. As a smoker the outside seating area was a bonus. When it states it has its own water supply it should have stated the water could be bottled and sold in bottles - a mountain spring is the source, then harvested, bespoke multistage filtered and ultra-violet treated providing pure water at the tap. The management (Sue and Gary) and their team either provides as much space or interaction as desired demonstrating oodles of hospitality. Skinny dipping if you forget to pack your bathing costume/swimming trunks in a mountain lake no further than half hour away after a days walking or first thing in the morning to start your day with a sparkle. Local eatery's - we would suggest look for the one with the most customers as a measure of its fare. We sat beside a stream (that was probably a river after the rains) with our Jack Russell and ate our fill - the portions looked enormous, but after a day's walking the contents of the plate seemed to diminish with time (and the help of JR!). If you're in to tourist stuff, then join the hoards who head for Snowdon, but Sue and Gary can point you in the direction of less travelled paths - was I staying for a week I'd plan BBQ's for the weekend and remain on-site away from the hoards afore-mentioned, but make the most of the weekdays. Collect shopping, drinks and refrigerated foodstuffs on the way in - Caenarfon has all the big supermarkets or use Portmadoc is nearer after arrival. I hope this helps those planning an escape from the stresses and strains of daily life - much better than a doctor's prescription pills :)

Many thanks to Sue for her help and kindness. Thanks to you to at Sykes for a brilliant web site which enabled easy detailed searching and simple booking. "We'll be back"address

  • "Helpful webchat when enquiring about booking and offer to hold the cottage while we decided what to do was much appreciated."

    The cabin is very comfortable and the views are amazing. The location of the cabin is very peaceful and uncrowded yet it's not too far from Beddgelert. Our hosts were very welcoming and friendly. They advised us about local area and were available if we needed anything. The welcome pack was much appreciated and included some lovely freshly baked bread which we really enjoyed. It was our first holiday away with our dog and the accommodation and surroundings worked well for him and he was made just as welcome as the rest of us! We had a lovely stay and very much hope to return soon.

  • "Our original booking had to be changed due to an issue, fortunately the same owners had a log cabin next door, which was fantastic."

    The views are stunning, the local area is wonderful, peace and quiet was just what we were looking for and what we got. Sue met us on our arrival with fresh bread, jam, and welsh scones, cabin was spotless and Sue was very engaging, recommended a few places visit which did not disappoint. I would recommend both this property, the owners, and the website, all were fantastic, sorted out the original booking issue smoothly and would certainly use them again.
