New Year is on the horizon and I don’t know about you, but the idea of getting together a group of friends to rent a holiday cottage with log fires and views of the Snowdonia mountains, lakes or beaches sounds like heaven. Whether you’re a group of adults or a group with young families, we have a number of really great properties that will ensure you bring in a very memorable 2017. Here are our Top 5 | New Year Holiday Cottages…   TALHENBONT HALL SLEEPS 10 | WIFI | NEAR BEACH | PET FRIENDLY | REAL FIRE This historic 17th Century Country House in North Wales offers a truly unique holiday destination for our guests. The magnificent formal grounds surrounded by ancient woodland provide the perfect backdrop for this notable stately home.   TAN-Y-WENALLT SLEEPS 8 | WIFI | NEAR BEACH | NEAR PUB | PET FRIENDLY | REAL FIRE Tan-Y-Wenallt is a ‘ty unnos’ or ‘one night house’. An ancient and well known tradition here in Wales. During the 18th century, a time of rapidly expanding population and poverty, it was generally agreed that a property could be built by squatters on common land so long as it was built within 24hrs, one day and one night. The test being that smoke had to emerge from the chimney before sunrise the following morning. The occupier was then allowed to claim a portion of the surrounding land. The boundary being set by the distance he could throw an axe from the new house. It’s most recent renovation has transformed it into a truly idyllic and luxurious holiday cottage!   SYCAMORE-COTTAGE SLEEPS 8 | WIFI Sycamore-Cottage is a large self-catering holiday home near Conwy in North Wales.

How To Be Happy | The Answer Might Be in Snowdonia

How To Be Happy | The Answer Might Be in Snowdonia

Posted by on May 29, 2015 in Blog | 1 comment

50% of happiness is determined by our genes, 10% is from our circumstances, job, house, status etc, leaving the remaining 40% down to us to manage. Whats the secret? The chemical in our bodies that promotes happiness is dopamine and from our teenage years onwards, if we do not actively try to create it in our bodies, it will naturally decrease and not be reproduced. If you don’t use it, you loose it. How do we create it? There are 4 recognised ways in which to increase dopamine levels: Close Network. Having a close and supportive network of family and friends. Spending time with them is important and those that do tend to me much happier and fulfilled. New Experiences. Changing the way you do things or going on adventures is a high dopamine releaser. It could be as simple as a different running route every morning or the big adventure. But either way, variety being the spice of life is truer than you think Physical Activity. Physical activity is a quick and surefire way to achieve that release of dopamine. Flow. Flow is when a person is doing something they enjoy so much, they totally loose themselves in the activity. Because the person is doing something they want to, it gives a sense of control whilst the loss of self means there are no problems at that moment in time. People who experience flow on a regular basis, are happier. Where can you go that will tick all the boxes for those extreme dopamine highs? Snowdonia of course! Why not grab the family or group of friends together and head on over. We certainly have everything you need for adventure. Physical activity is par of the course with all the walking and activities that we have here. Getting away from it all is sure to help with your ‘Flow’. Come on, get happy in...

Experience Snowdonia In Springtime

Experience Snowdonia In Springtime

Posted by on Apr 16, 2015 in Blog | 0 comments

Driving through the towns and villages this week, it is clear that spring has arrived. Snowdonia has woken from its winter hibernation and everyone is getting ready to enjoy the great outdoors that this part of North Wales has to offer. To experience Snowdonia in springtime is special. Stunning green pastures set against a back drop of snow capped mountains, crystal clear lakes, turquoise seas, and cascading waterfalls. When you add newborn lambs bouncing in the fields among the daffodils, it’s pretty idyllic. Even for those fortunate to live here, it really is Snowdonia at its best! With the lighter spring evenings, longer walks and treks are also an option. This is the best time to climb Snowdon in our opinion. Apart from missing the summertime masses, with the lower temperatures, and the countryside looking at its best, it makes this bucket list adventure even more enjoyable. So if your thinking of climbing up Snowdon or just in the mood for a bit of spring time holiday fun, have a look at our cottages as there’s something on offer for...
