  • "Wonderful location, lots of effort gone into making guests comfortable (coffee, tea, milk, welsh cakes, shampoo, shaving gel etc etc!"

    ) Dog next door barked quite a lot- it didn't bother us but may be an issue for some guests Instructions to find you could be clearer- we never saw a signpost to Bryniffynnon. Would be clearer to say signpost to Nantmor and then left just before the big chapel. Not a criticism, just helpful hopefully Lovely 3 nights with you, thank you

    The cottage is wonderful, it's an ideal place to stay. Clean, comfortable and peaceful location. Would recommend and gladly stay a third time.

  • "Bigger than it looks in the photos."

    Kitchen very well equipt with modern appliances and utensils. Hot tap in the bathroom sink twists the wrong way to normal - No problem, just takes a moment to get head around it. Generally exceptionally clean, but could do with a high level dusting and spider eviction. Beautiful location, very comfortable. We will definitely go back.

  • "Beautiful cottage, which was clean and well equipped, super fluffy towels and comfortable bed, we loved the remoteness of the setting."

    Friendly owners without being intrusive. Thank you for the wee welcome gifts especially the Welsh cakes mmm and allowing us to pick some apples. Pasta bowls would be useful and a dust pan and brush so I could sweep up my cooking crumbs. Seems strange making comment on the quality and sharpness of the knives but when self catering this is very important (I brought my own knives but they did not get used at all this holiday :)) Loved all of the "nic nac" ornaments - me to a T. North Wales is a beautiful part of the country and we relived childhood memories - highlights were climbing Yr Wyddfa up and down in 6 hours and the train journey to Caernarvon. A BIG thank you from this Northumberland Couple.

    The property was well-appointed, nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. There was everything there that you could possibly need, with lots of extra little touches that all combined to make our stay very good indeed. The friendly owners are close by and on hand if needed, but are otherwise very discreet. We would definitely recommend a stay here. Excellent experience. Veronica and Richard (1st to 15th July 2023)

  • "This is a beautiful cottage, with everything of the highest standard, reflecting the way of life of the owners."

    We had long conversations with them and care a lot about the same things. Both the welcome and farewell are treasures. The outlook and views are gorgeous. It would have been better for us to have been able to have a sofa bed in the lounge as a fallback. The directions to the cottage are badly in need of revision! The turning off the A4085, is marked by a 'BUS STOP SIGN and a dirty sign that reads Nantmor'. (There is no sign for the name of the road, and your directions are wrong at this point.) It should then say: 'Climb up steeply, over the Railtrack and uphill through Nantmor village till you see the Chapel on your left. Turn left in front of the Chapel and past the telephone box and keep going uphill till you reach a gate with Cwm Caith Farm on it. Open the gate to drive through and close it. Drive on and you will then see the farmhouse.' The only other point I would make about your services is this. We had decided to come to the area one night sooner and it so happened that Cwm Caith was available that one night extra. After phoning yourselves, I was told it would cost a staggering 140 pounds extra. So of course, I looked around and got fixed up for half that amount in Porthmadog.This huge sum was due I believe to extra insurance and admin., not a higher daily rent rate for the owners. This incident is the mainyy reason I have rated you at only 5.

  • "This is a very special place and we agree with the constant 5* reviews that confirm this!"

    The hosts are very welcoming and friendly and happy to help with any questions (they live opposite). The situation is just breathtaking and you have your own little garden and table and chairs with an unspoilt view of the mountains. It is so quiet and peaceful with just the noise of the birds and sheep (or rain if you are unlucky - although we had perfect weather for 95% of the time). The cottage is quite small but perfect for two people and is tastefully decorated with a functional kitchen. Unlike many properties, so much is provided and the welcome pack is amazing (certainly no need to go shopping for a day). Another nice touch was the provision of "emergency" toiletries. Very highly recommended - you will not be disappointed!. P.S. Our SatNav found it first time with the Postcode!

    All Instructions were very clear and the cottage was clean and nicely decorated and there was a selection of leaflets on places to visit. There was also a small garden area with table and chairs for sitting outside. The fact that the owners lived on the opposite side of the farm track meant that if there had been any problems (which there wasn't) they would have been easily contactable . The owners were also very friendly and helpful with advice on places to visit and the best places to eat out in the area.

About the location

BEDDGELERT

Porthmadog 7.7 miles; Caernarfon 12.8 miles.

The picturesque village of Beddgelert lies in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park at the foot of Mount Snowdon. Beddgelert is a bustling village with arts and craft shops, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants, centred around the Afon Glaslyn river. A 20 minute stroll along the river will take you to the Aberglaslyn Pass, one of North Wales’ most famous beauty spots. The Welsh Highland Steam Railway passes through the village on its journey from Porthmadog to Caernarfon. Beddgelert is famed for its monument to the Welsh Prince Llewelyn's dog, whom the Prince killed thinking it had attacked and killed his son, only to discover afterwards it had been defending his son from a savage wolf attack. With Porthmadog, Portmeirion, Borth y Gest and the whole of the Llyn Peninsula easily reached, this is an ideal location for a Welsh holiday.
