This large five bedroom holiday cottage near Snowdon is the perfect base for larger families wanting to explore the rugged landscape of North Wales. The large kitchen diner is the natural heart of the house. A long square table can easily see up to ten guests. A modern cooking range will help you prepare those wholesome family meals and large picture windows give a fantastic view of the surrounding mountains. The adjacent utility room houses the fridge and freezer as well as a washing machine and tumble dryer.
Next we move through into the lounge. Two large sofas sit facing a warming log fire housed in the original inglenook fireplace. A modern flat screen TV sits discreetly in the corner of the room. There’s more sitting space in the adjoining snug. There’s a TV in here two which I’m guessing might be useful if everybody can’t agree what channel to watch.
There are five bedrooms in total. The first twin room is on the ground floor. There’s also a ground floor bathroom with large shower cubicle which may well help some grandparents who are a little less mobile.
Four more bedrooms upstairs. Two double rooms, one smaller single room and one room with a set of bunk beds. All the bedrooms, like the rest of the house, are immaculately furnished and spotlessly keen. The second family bathroom is located on this floor.
A another unique offering to this property is the addition of a games room and sauna located in the stone shed to the side of the house. Evening entertainment is sorted with a 6ft pool table, table tennis and crazy football for the kids and a sauna with unlimited use for the adults – perfect!

It’s about a mile down to the village of Betws Garmon, a little less if you’re brave enough to venture across the fields in the dark. It’s only a small village so not a lot there.
A short 3 minute drive will bring you to lake Cwellyn car park. The famous Snowdon Ranger path up Snowdon starts here. This westerly route up the mountain is often favoured by more experience walkers to the busier eastern routes on the other side of the mountain.
A little further is the next village of Rhyd Ddu. A fantastic pub serving great food and just opposite another route up Snowdon. There’s also a lovely café and the opportunity to jump on the Welsh Highland Railway, a narrow gauge steam railway that runs between the larger towns of Porthmadog and Caernarfon along, what must be, one of the most picturesque railway routes in the world.
Beddgelert is a 15 minute drive away which is a beautiful village in the heart of the mountains. Make sure you visit its great ice-cream shop!
Caernarfon is about 6 miles away from the cottage to the North (15 mins in the car). The famous castle is a natural ‘must do’ but lots of shops, cafes and restaurants are also there. 15 miles to the south is the bustling seaside town of Porthmadog. Again, plenty of shopping opportunities as well as the popular sandy beaches of Borth Y Guest and Black Rock.
The fastest zip line in the world, internationally renowned white water rafting and premier down hill mountain biking are just some of the more adrenaline inducing activities also available in the area.
