"This a great family and dog friendly cottage"
This cottage was great for myself, 4 adults and 1 dog, plenty of space for all. If you like peace and quiet after shopping, sight seeing, walikng or climbing this is the place for you. If you want really good Fish and Chips pop into Llanrug, where they cook fresh food there and then for you. There is also a small butcher / delicatessen which produces some great foods.
Book tickets for Mountain Railway before going on holiday. Pop into Pete's eat cafe in Llanberis before going on any long walks or climbing in the morning.
