  • "A beautiful spacious and warm house situated in a lovely quiet area of Llanberis."

    Had everything we needed for a comfy (luxurious) stay away from home, thank you.

  • "A lovely spacious modern house that comfortably gave us plenty of room."

    The beds and sofas were really comfy and there was a large dining table that seated us all easily. Plenty of room for 2 cars ( we squeezed 3 on). We didn’t use the cars as the central location was close to the excellent Spar and pub (the latter had good food). We were able to walk to the bottom of the Llanberis path for our journey to the top of Snowdon. The Slate museum, railways and local walking were also within walking access. Would thoroughly recommend the house and place!

  • "Really well presented and comfortable property The house was spotlessly clean and a few nice touches left for our arrival The location couldn’t be better as not only are you a couple of minutes walk from all the local amenities but the local attractions are also within walking distance so great opportunity to leave the car and get out."

    We would definitely love to return to Ty Bains again as so much more to explore which we didn’t get around to on this break

  • "A lovely and beautifully decorated property."

    Plenty of seating inside and out for everyone to be together. We really enjoyed our time there and wished we had been staying for longer. We would definitely come back again.

  • "Very comfortable and warm house; excellent layout downstairs."

    Our only niggle was lack of space in the bedrooms for clothes storage but it was just about solvable for us. We were able to use the 4th bedroom as a spare

  • "We had a fantastic stay over the Christmas break."

    The only thing I would mention would be the oven doesn’t seem to get that hot when we was cooking and maybe some tips on how to light the fire as one day we managed to fill the lounge with smoke. Not sure if that was user error. But a fantastic location with everything we needed and more.

    Ideal base for Snowdonia and the coast

  • "Lovely house, very comfortable."

    A nice cream cake and bottle of wine in the fridge on arrival, thank-you. Facilities were very good and nothing disappointed, everything in good working order. The week we stayed the weather was mixed and a bit on the cool side so we made good use of the outdoor fire in the evenings which was really nice, listening to the bird calls, we heard a tawny owl most evenings. Some nice walks nearby up to the waterfalls and around the lake in Llanberis, Llyn Padarn. Llanberis itself is a nice place with some good shops. Recommend the ice-cream shop and we had really good takeaways from The Spice of Llanberis and Allports Fish and Chips.

  • "A wonderful house to stay in."

    It was exactly as it appeared online, with everything you could need for a holiday stay and more. Very comfortable beds which is always important. Living area is also well thought out and comfortable. The location was brilliant, only a short distance from Llanberis centre and very close to many attractions. Very quiet location. Lovely outdoor space to entertain or to sit and read.

    . perfectly situated everything in walking distance. As we arrived and bought in our bags the first thing you do is check there’s milk for a cuppa (there was ) but we were also surprised with two bottles of Prosecco and profiteroles

  • "Our stay has been hugely enjoyable as a result of the lovely facilities and beautifully scenic position of this property."

    It really is a home from home with all needs met plus the thoughtfulness of a welcome bottle of prosecco and yummy desert in the fridge for our arrival was an extra pleasure. Though we had no direct contact with the owners/caretaker we felt very welcomed by these touches and the provision of the basics for cleaning products, etc. was an added bonus.

  • "Stepping into Ty Bains was a fantastic start to our family holiday."

    The location was excellent and the house was exceptional. The welcome pack was a lovely touch and much appreciated. The house and gardens where to a very high standard, with all amenities that you could need. We really enjoyed the downstairs open living layout and made the most if the wood burner on cold evenings. The house was very clean and modern and we would highly recommend it.

The property

Nestled in a fantastic location in the Snowdonia National Park in Llanberis, Gwynedd is this splendid four-bedroom, detached abode Ty Bains.

Welcoming eight guests and boasting a large open-plan interior, a woodburning stove and an impressive rear patio with furniture and a fire pit, Ty Bains is the perfect property for a family escape to North Wales.

Make yourself at home in your new dwelling, kicking back on the plush sofas as you click on the Smart TV and throw another log on the woodburning stove; allow the designated chef to become accustomed with the fully-equipped kitchen and utility as they whip up a tasty feast for the whole family ready to be enjoyed at the dining table for eight over a bottle of bubbly.

If you prefer to dine alfresco, why not step out onto your very own private patio and savour family mealtimes amongst the stunning surroundings of the Snowdonia National Park as the sun sets in the distance.

When the sky grows dark, retreat to a family bathroom to freshen up with a long soak or revitalising shower before taking refuge in one of four stunningly-presented bedrooms including two doubles, a king-size master bedroom with TV and en-suite shower room and a king-size with TV.

Begin your day with a morning coffee out on the front patio before taking a relaxing stroll around Llyn Padarn which resides merely paces away from the property; head to Llanberis where you can find Dolbadarn Castle, the National Slate Museum and Llanberis Lake Railway, all guaranteed to provide a fun-filled day for all the family.

If you prefer to while the days away with more challenging pursuits, why not embark on a hike up Yr Wyddfa or Glyder Fawr, both offering impressive vistas across the beautiful landscape.

Spend the day in Caernarfon touring the grounds of the 13th-century Caernarfon Castle, amble along Menai Bridge, try your hand at a range of watersports on the Menai Strait or sample a range of pubs, restaurants, bars and cafes found in the bustling city of Bangor.

For a truly memorable escape with your loved ones in North Wales, book a stay at Ty Bains.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

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.
