  • "The house was very well equipped and warm."

    The location is terrific for walking in the National Park and Llanberis is relatively unspoiled compared to other more 'touristy' places. The welcome pack was really lovely and we both put on weight eating the delicious Bara Brith! The owners were really attentive in a helpful way ensuring we were warm enough etc. Will definitely return to this one, very good value indeed.

    The cottage is very well equipped, spotlessly clean and surprisingly large inside. Mary gave us a very warm welcome and I doubt if you will find a more generous welcome pack anywhere in Wales. This is the second time we have stayed at Hirfron and would definitely recommend it.

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.
