About the property

Penygroes 3.2 miles.

Nestling in a quiet terrace in the hamlet of Nantlle in the Nantlle Valley, surrounded by dramatic, steep hillsides and watched over by Snowdon, sits this charming cottage, Shadowfax.

Ideal for couples or a small family of four, the property boasts access to hikes along the popular Nantlle Ridge along with nearby beaches and attractions.

After parking in front of this lovely dwelling, ascend the stone steps to find a lovely patio area where you can take in the property's exceptional surroundings.

Head inside to come across an inviting open-plan living space, with sofas for you to stretch out on before switching on the toasty electric fire (perfect for the winter seasons) and watch your favourite movie on the Smart TV.

Continue to the kitchen where you will find all the essential appliances you require to create tantilising dishes, to be enjoyed at the nearby dining table as you plan your activities for the days ahead.

In the evening, make your way upstairs to discover two appealing bedrooms, one being a double benefiting from a private balcony with outdoor seating for you to savour a tranquil moment, along with another double room with views over the rolling hills.

The bedrooms share a fabulous bathroom with a p-shaped bath for you to unwind in after a day filled with excursions.

Dorothea Quarry isn't far and home to some wonderful walks and hidden lakes deep within, is close by whilst the stunningly beautiful Llyn Nantlle Uchaf and Nantlle Valley are just a stroll away.

Venture to Penygroes to find your amenities, from convenience stores to pubs, including local-favourite The Goat where you can enjoy welcoming service and tasty dishes.

Be sure to spend the day in Llanberis where you can visit the delectable Snowdon Honey Farm & Winery, tour the unique National Slate Museum, or board the Llanberis Lake Railway to ride through stunning mountains to Penllyn.

Llanberis additionally acts as a gateway to Snowdonia National Park and you can visit the close-by, stunning Dolbadarn Castle and the Ceunant Mawr Waterfall, before venturing further into the park and embarking on hikes up the peaks of Clib Carnedd Llewelyn and Glyder Fawr; the Park is home to a plethora of exhilarating activities, including the Sygun Copper Mine.

Savour a day by the coast at Caernarfon and tour its famed Castle, explore the remains of the Segontium Roman Fort and stroll around Victoria Dock, before stopping for a bite to eat at one of the town's many eateries.

The popular village of Beddgelert is under 10 miles away and just the other side of the valley is Rhyd Ddu where you can hop on the Welsh Highland Railway to run through the beautiful landscapes of Wales; there's even Pant Du Vineyard just down the road!

For an unforgettable stay in Wales, choose Shadowfax.
