    Beds were comfortable with and cottage was lovely and cosy. Excellent hospitality basket with lots of biscuits, welsh cakes and a bara brith. Having butter & jam as well as milk was very helpful.

  • "What a lovely, comfortable ‘home from home’ property."

    We thoroughly enjoyed a week staying at Hirfron. Mary supplied us with a fantastic welcome basket and the house is fully stocked with cleaning products and essential cooking condiments, which was most appreciated. The house is perfectly placed in Llanberis which itself is also perfectly placed in Snowdonia.

  • "Property was in a great spot in the centre of Llanberis - everything was accessible on foot (shops, restuarant, Llyn Padarn, Mountain Railway etc) so it was nice to park the car and leave it there!"

    Would have been useful to have the house name on the rear of the property as confirmation that we were parking in the right spot. Easy to access the property from rear parking space. Keysafe system and access was all straightforward and as per instructions. House had plenty of space for 5 of us (2 adults, three children). Note that the single room has a narrower bed (ie not a standard single.) Goodies left to welcome us were appreciated (kids were very happy!) - thanks for those. Tea, coffee, sugar, salt, peppper are all provided. There was butter and milk in fridge and bread provided too. Bedrooms - beds were comfortable, note that there are many feather pillows and this unfortunately aggravated my allergies, leaving me wheezing for our stay. The double bed has a King size duvet which meant it was very heavy due to hanging so far down the sides. Cleaning was mainly good. Heating was good, would be needed less if some of the draughty holes were filled in though! Big cold gusts coming in down the side of the cooker and through cupboards in middle living room - lots of dust blown through too so games and books were all covered in it - these need cleaning up. Lovely friendly owner popped in to check we were ok. Overall, a lovely place to say, and very well placed if you're running Snowdonia Marathon!

About the location


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.
