  • "We had a lovely stay."

    Thank you! The best thing about this property is - views from the window, especially loft bedroom. And piano. The property had everything that was listed.

  • "We had a lovely stay in this great cottage."

    Felt like going from home to home, in a beautiful location. Wish we could have taken the views back with us. Well equipped cottage, the only downsides were the loft bedroom is very noisy during bad weather/rain especially at night; the toilet seat was not attached in upstairs bathroom making it practical impossible to use that toilet; and each bed had a different hardness of mattresses and pillows which was fantastic for chosing which one suited you best, but due to steep stairs to loft, it limits who is able to access that bedroom. However this is entirely understandable. We had an amazing time during our stay with lots of brilliant places to visit nearby. A great location for walking and exploring, but also travelling to surrounding areas.

  • "A lovely cottage, and beautiful setting, quiet and with lovely views both sides."

    All was clean and well maintained. Pros and cons to all 3 bedrooms: Loft bedroom has the best views and best bed, and black-out blinds in the window, but the steep and uneven staircase is unenclosed with no door so less private and hard to block out light and noise from the rest of the house. Being a loft room, much of the space is too low to walk upright in. Our kids loved hanging out in there. Small double bedroom (middle floor) has a useful built in cupboard and is fine except for having the bathroom macerator the other side of the thin internal wall from the bathroom. The macerator is about as subtle as a pneumatic drill when in use. Twin bedroom has lovely views but mattresses are not great (very wobbly). Living-dining room is comfy, but sofa seating seats 4 comfortably or 6 at a squash. Piano is a nice extra, if you are not fussy about the tuning. WiFi worked well (no phone reception in the area). Kitchen although small is well equipped. Although I have outlined some niggles above, we had a lovely stay here. There was lots to do within a reasonable drive (and despite the apparently remote location, a fabulous coffee shop within walking distance!) and the cottage was comfortable for hunkering down in when rain stopped play.

  • "Lovely spot, in a quiet area."

    House has lots of extras ie books, DVDs, OS Maps, which makes it homey. Lake at the back has new notice of no BBQ, no kayaking, no paddle boarding. There is a leak in the kitchen roof which needs sorting, but otherwise great stay with lots of lovely walks nearby.

  • "A little concerned by the very steep stairs to the loft bedroom and loose handrail."

    The light does not work in the shed accommodating the washing machine, and when endeavouring to get the light to work ,turned on both light switches adjacent to the back door, and saw sparks coming from an extension lead ,kept on top of the washing machine. Turning off the light switches and unplugging the extension lead made a temporary fix.

  • "No towels were provided despite the individual listing stating that they would be."

    The wifi did not work and because the property has no phone reception we had to travel miles down the road to get in touch about the property. The problems were reported and we were told that someone would visit the property if we left the key in the lockbox, no one visited the property and we heard nothing more from you. I find this really disappointing and to be very poor customer service

  • "This was a nice house in a very beautiful location."

    Check in and out were very easy, and lots of detailed information was provided for guests. Our only issue was that we have small children, and the only room where a travel cot could fit was the attic room. We weren't expecting this, as the booking suggests that children can be easily accommodated. Going up and down an extremely steep and narrow-stepped stairway with a baby and a two-year-old was treacherous. Also, as it's the attic room, you can hear absolutely everything from below and also everything going on in the room, so the other people we were staying with could hear our children throughout the night, and as they are also early risers, this was disruptive. Also, do bring your own hand soap and toilet roll, as these were in short supply and we needed to replace these in the house on day two. If we didn't have children with us though, this would have been an ideal place to stay as it really is lovely.

The property

Nestling in an area of outstanding natural beauty, 12 Victoria Terrace is ideal for both outdoor enthusiasts and those in need of relaxation!

This traditional terraced holiday cottage is situated in the village of Nantlle which has a delightful lake and is overlooked by the majestic mountains of Snowdonia. There’s a cosy sitting area at one end of the main sitting & dining area where two comfortable sofas surround a multi-fuel woodburning stove.

Whilst this space is open-plan, the sitting area maintains a cosy feel and there is also a TV here with DVD player, making it perfect for snuggly winter nights in.

There is a dining table at the other end with chairs, great for family breakfasts or dinner.

There’s even a piano - bring someone with you who can play for in-house entertainment! The sweet kitchen has fabulous slate worktops in keeping with the setting of this fab holiday house.

You’ll find a Belfast sink, electric cooker and hob with extractor above, as well as a fridge and microwave.

An added treat is the pantry with a freezer!

There is an outbuilding next to the kitchen which houses a washing machine/dryer. A ground floor bathroom contains a shower over the roll top bath with accompanying loo and wash hand basin. Head upstairs to find the three bedrooms - one with double bed and built-in wardrobe and one with two single beds and gorgeous views out towards the lake and the mountains.

On this floor you’ll also find the modern family shower room with a large shower cubicle, heated towel rail, loo and wash hand basin.

The third room is in the attic and has a double bed.

Venture outside to find a small enclosed garden laid to lawn with a decked area complete with table and chairs.

Imagine the sun on your skin whilst sat here on a summer's day enjoying an alfresco brunch!

Shed for storage of kayaks and other outdoor gear. If you’re a water-lover you can venture out on the lake for a wild swim, or go out in your kayak or canoe (the lake cannot be accessed directly from the house but is just a few hundred yards to access).

If you’re more land-based, enjoy a cycle through the incredible scenery of Snowdonia - it truly is a delight!

The villages of Beddgelert and Rhyd Ddu are not far from 12 Victoria Terrace.

If you want to climb Snowdon, Rhyd Ddu is the place to go!

Although, this is one of the more challenging routes, so caution is advised.

Alternatively, if you’re after a more relaxed break, why not snuggle in front of the woodburner with a cuppa or glass of wine and a good book?

This holiday cottage is also well-situated for relaxing days spent on the beach!

Abersoch, Llanbedrog and Nefyn on the Llŷn Peninsula are always popular.

Newborough on Anglesey is also another gem.

A ten-minute drive takes you to Caernarfon with its medieval castle and fab places to eat and drink.

Porthmadog, Pwllheli and Criccieth and also just 20 minutes drive away, meaning you’ll get a perfect taster of North Wales from this brilliant holiday cottage!

12 Victoria Terrace is also close to Trigonos yoga/mindfulness retreat.
