  • "Lovely cottage, situated right in the middle of llanberis, ideal for exploring snowdonia."

    Just the right size for 13 of us - especially the dining room where we could all sit together. Any more people would have been a bit tricky with just 2 showers, and amount of seating space in sitting room. Possibly some issue with lower ground floor shower room/sauna, as floor wet when we arrived, and remained wet - which put us off using it, as it seemed slightly grubby. On arrival there were no dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid or toilet rolls, which we wouldn’t have minded bringing if we’d been made aware, so had to purchase these locally - however, the owner did respond to my phone call and these were provided the next day.

  • "The property is in an ideal location and is a large house for bigger groups."

    It is however a little tired and we had to wash the pots, pans, cups etc before we used them. The owners are really helpful and as a group we enjoyed our break.

  • "The property was a nice size for the group, but feel it is fairly run down, in need of a little refurbishment and modernising inside, no Wi-Fi and very basic, not a lot in terms of pubs in the area and feel £1000 a night is very excessive for this property/location."

CARPET HAD NOT BEEN HOOVERED. UNDER ONE BED THERE WAS CUP CAKE WRAPPERS. KITCHEN WAS CLEAN AND EXCELLENT CROCKERY AND FACILITIES. BEDDING WAS CLEAN ALSO. BATHROOMS IN DESPERATE NEED OF AN UPDATE.. BATH WAS NICE BUT SHOWERS WERE ELECTRIC AND HARDLY DISPERSED ANY WATER.. THE WATER WAS NICE AND HOT THOUGH. LOCATION OF PROPERTY WAS EXCELLENT. WE FEEL SURE THAT THIS PROPERTY HAD NOT BEEN USED FOR SOME TIME.

  • "The property was perfectly placed in the village."

    The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed and in honesty there was more than expected. The sauna was a godsend and everyone in the party used it over the weekend to recover from the treks up the mountain. This absolutely satisfied the requirements for out party.

  • "Nice big clean house in a super location in the village of Llanberis."

    Had everything we needed plus a sauna ! Huge dining table, and lots of seating in the basement lounge area. Very helpful owners, and within a few minutes walk of the local pubs restaurants and takeaways. Good base for climbing Snowdon, paddling on the lake and exploring the local area. We had a very enjoyable 4 night stay for 9 of us.

  • "We loved the experience and the area is amazing couldnt have asked for a better situated property."

    The property is dated and its spread across four floors. All the beds creak and so do all the staircases. The day after we arrived the was no hot water in two out of three bathroom. The ine that worked was on the top floor and was a bath which made it more difficult for my elderly parents to reach. It took a long time to fix the issue and only one of the showers were fixed. We had kids with us and felt like we should have been reinbursed as it was not our fault but we were not.

  • "The house was spacious enough for all of us - 11 adults, 5 children and 3 dogs."

    The kitchen was fully equipped - there was plenty of cutlery, utensils and pots/pans. The bedrooms were roomy and provided plenty of storage space. The downstairs shower was the one that was used the most as the shower on the 1st floor tended just to trickle. We experienced no issues with the hot water. The downstairs sitting room was large enough to seat everyone, with the added bonus of the snug room. The log fire was a welcome addition, particularly after a brisk walk around the lake. The location of the house itself is great. Situated on the main high street, it is close by to all amenities, the lake and Mount Snowdon. The property was a little tired and dated in places and would benefit from a lick of paint. We experienced an issue with the shower door in the downstairs bathroom, but this was quickly rectified after a phone call to the owner, Lesley. The outside seating area could also do with a tidy up. Tshe bins located under the front steps were full when we arrived and the floor under here was full of cigarette ends. Aside from the minor issues, we had a wonderful extended weekend break and would definitely book to stay here again.

    The heating is set which is fine we just turned the radiators off that we didn't want on at the radiator but there was no way of getting hot water as you can't adjust the boiler, you will have to contact the owners or caretaker. We went white water rafting and everyone got a hot shower there. There is an electric shower on the second floor which gets hot but doing dishes etc it was boil the kettle. Apart from the water we all loved the place and would return but would get the water sorted

About the location

LLANBERIS

Caernarfon 7 miles; Bangor 10 miles; Betws-y-Coed 17 miles.

Dominated by the grandeur of the Snowdon Massif, Llanberis is flanked by two lakes, Llyn Padarn and Llyn Peris and is one of the most popular mountain tourist centres in the Snowdonia National Park. In fact, Llanberis is something of a mecca for walkers and climbers, being the starting point for the ascent of Snowdon - the highest mountain in England and Wales. The ascent can be made either by train via the Snowdon Mountain Railway, or on foot along one of the many routes to the summit. Each year, major racing events attract thousands to the area: The fast Snowdon Race to the summit, held in July every year, a triathlon known as the world's toughest, and The Snowdonia Marathon, held in October - a gruelling 26-mile course that starts and finishes in Llanberis, circumnavigating the Snowdon Massif. The area is also popular for mountain biking, open water swimming and stand up paddle boarding. Within Llanberis itself there are excellent places to eat and drink and a great choice of shopping. Just 7 miles from Llanberis on the coast is Caernarfon with its magnificent castle and town walls and close by are National Trust properties at Penrhyn, Plas Newydd and Bodnant Gardens.
