  • "Great cottage in a lovely location."

    Reviewed by SamanthaSep 2021

  • "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!

  • "The house is very comfortable and homely."

    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.

  • "Was like home from home, would stay again"

    Reviewed by JavedSep 2019

  • "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!

You do not have to venture far to take in your surroundings as you are within walking distance to the Welsh steam train and the Welsh Osprey Centre, there is a park across the road for the children, a 3-waterfall walk on the doorstep and Aberdunant Hall, where they serve amazing homemade food and excellent local beers, is only a short stroll away.

The cottage provides a light, airy and extremely welcoming accommodation, set across two floors.

Step into the lovely lounge area with its newly fitted carpets, and plush charcoal and blue sofas, where you sit and relax after a long day sightseeing. Enjoy the benefits of the flat screen TV, Wii and DVD player, with plenty of DVDs and Wii games on-hand to keep you entertained the whole trip.

Move towards the open-plan kitchen and dining area with seating for up to six people.

There is parking in the free car park opposite the property.

Beddgelert is a beautiful village, a must see on your visit, with lovely walks, amazing ice cream and little shops.Learn the legend of Gelert whilst you take in your surroundings.The short walk is also pushchair friendly.

Beddgelert itself is home to the Sygun Copper Mine, which was closed in 1903 and has self-guided audio and visual tours, so the whole family can explore the caves at their leisure.

This property is also a good base for walking up Snowdon, rock-climbing the popular rock face near the Eric Jones climbers café in nearby Tremadog and experiencing the adventures that can be encountered at Zipworld in Blaenau Ffestiniog, including Titan: Europe’s largest zipping zone, the Caverns: A unique underground adventure course and Bounce Below: an underground net adventure playground for 7yrs plus.

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.
