  • "The perfect cottage in a beautiful part of the world."

  • "Lovely time staying at the cottage."

    perfect location for going out and about. everything you would need and more is in the cottage, home from home. Children well catered for with loads of games and books ready there waiting to be played with. access to the cottage can be a bit difficult if you have mobility issues. Porthmadog only a couple of miles away as is a large Tesco store. Steam train journeys a must and my favourite was the Harbour Master. we really enjoyed are stay at the cottage and would book again Porthmadog only a couple of miles away as is a large tesco store. Steam train journeys a must for anyone, The Harbour Master was my favourite.

    The house was very comfortable, warm and welcoming. The kitchen was well stocked. We discovered some fine walks in the hills behind the house and some beautiful beaches a short drive away. We would certainly booked it again, ideally situated.

    The property is a gorgeous old stone cottage in a wonderful setting. A comfortable walk to the beach and the pubs. Property was very clean and homely, and the owners offered an excellent service. We will be staying here again and would recommend to any parties; families or couples!

  • "Property was very clean and tidy, have everything you expect for a self catering cottage."

    Needs bit of fumigation, many spiders all around. Access into the property is not very good , from front or from the back. Size is very good , its a 3 bed house rather than cottage.

  • "A lot of thought has gone in to making this cottage very welcoming & homely."

    It was spotlessly clean & there were lots of books/toys/games/DVDs to everyone entertained. It is very well equipped even down to spare light bulbs should you need them. The property is situated on a steep hillside so not for anyone with mobility issues, and unless you are a keen walker, you have to drive to the local shop. There was no mobile phone telephone signal at this property & wifi signal does not reach in the twin bedroom which was an problem with my teen!

    Everything a family with a toddler requires. Location of the house is fantastic as we were close to so many attractions. Wish we could have stayed longer.

  • "I think it should be emphasised that access is very steep and rough underfoot at the front and not suitable for people with even slightly limited mobility."

    There are steps down to the back door but when we were there these were inaccessible. We managed thanks to the kindness of neighbours but until the back is accessible this cottage is difficult to get into.

  • "We had a fantastic holiday the accommodation was faultless as was the weather."

    We had a brilliant time and would recommend the house to anyone, though a degree of fitness is required to gain access to the house as it's on a hill.

  • "We were very pleased with the accommodation and its location."

    The cottage is ideally suited to explore the Snowdonia National Park, the local little trains of Wales, castles, beaches and walks. Thankfully the weather was kind to us as past experience of North Wales generally involves rain! The only downsides were that we could not find a hairdryer (two ladies in the group!!) and the parking. Climbing Everest after a day out in the hills was a test of our endurance! Still everyone enjoyed themselves and we could well return in the future!

Tucked away in the charming hamlet of Prenteg near Porthmadog, Gwynedd, is this wonderful former quarryman’s cottage, 2 Bryn Eglwys.

Enjoying a superb location in the stunning Snowdonia National Park, with exceptional walks and bike rides right from your front door, 2 Bryn Eglwys is a fantastic family-friendly choice for couples, friends and families.

The property benefits from off-road parking in the adjacent free park, and a sloping lawned garden with furniture and barbecue, perfect for evening drinks or alfresco dining with a view.

On the ground floor, you will find a well-equipped kitchen/diner, where you can cook up family favourites, ready to enjoy at the dining table as you recount the day's adventures.

After dinner, make your way through to the inviting sitting area, where you can fire up the woodburning stove, before settling down to watch a film on the TV with a DVD player.

Head upstairs, where you will find a contemporary bathroom, where you can freshen up in the walk-in shower or indulge in a leisurely soak in the bath.

When sleep calls, retire to one of three tastefully decorated bedrooms, a double, a twin and a single, all ideal for catching up on some well-deserved rest.

Wander around the hamlet, where you can visit the wildlife rich Bywyd Gwyllt Glaslyn Wildlife – Ospreys for leisurely strolls, visit the nearby Aberdunant Hall, where you will find an on-site restaurant and a bar, tire the little ones out at the playground just across the road, or amble up to the lovely 3-ft waterfall nearby.

All this and more awaits you with a stay at 2 Bryn Eglwys.

About the location


Porthmadog 4 miles.

The small village of Prenteg stands at the foot of the Moel Ddu Mountain, close to Tremadog Bay, and is surrounded by the beautiful Snowdonia National Park. Historically a slate and copper mining community, the village is today renowned for the regular sightings of Wales' only nesting Osprey. Just 4 miles away, aside the Glaslyn Estuary, the bustling harbour town of Pothmadog is alive with an exciting marina and an array of individual shops and restaurants, whilst being home to the historic Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Heritage Railway. The picturesque cliffs and coves and enormous Black Rock Beach makes for an idyllic day out, whilst the fabulous Italianate village of Portmeirion is a must. With the medieval castles at nearby Criccieth, Harlech and Caernarfon and a host of excellent walking and cycling opportunities within easy reach, this is an ideal location for enjoying all that Snowdonia and the Llyn Peninsula have to offer. Several beautiful sandy beaches can be found within a 10-20 minute drive. Harlech beach where the golden sands are 4 miles long, backed by a fantastic dune system and one of North Wales’ best golf courses (Royal St David’s), Borth-y-Gest, a hidden gem, Shell Island, Black Rock Sands, and we can’t forget Porthdinllaen, where a walk around the picturesque peninsula takes you to the Ty Coch Inn on the beach, rated one of the top 10 best beach bars in the world. There is an abundance of great beaches on the Llyn Peninsula including Porth Oer Beach, known as Whistling Sands due to the way the sand “squeaks” under your feet which is also a great spot for surfing/body boarding and a great beach café.
