Bryn Llyfnwy (Pete's Place)
House | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 9
Hello, my name's Pete. I rent rooms/beds on a bed and breakfast (simple, help yourself affair: toast, marmalade, tea, coffee) basis. I live on site. There are 3 rooms currently available with a total of 7 beds. It is also possible to rent the whole house for up to 9 people (4 bedrooms) I will require some notice for this, however as it means I'll have to temporarily move myself out. I can't get the pricing table (below) to do what I want so Prices are: £20 pppn or £120 pppw. If you require the whole house or a longer let please ask as I'll probably be able to offer a discount.
The house is my workplace as well as my home so it's functional rather than frilly. I run a small carpentry workshop and construction business on the western edge of the Snowdonia National Park. I share with 2 friendly sheepdogs (I'm not unfriendly myself!) There are 3 rooms available with the possibility of more space should it be needed (I'm happy to improvise for people on a budget) also, camping is a possibility in my adjoining field. I enjoy cooking and can provide simple meals if requested.There is a large dining kitchen and 2 comfortable sitting rooms, central heating and 2 multi-fuel stoves.
Right at the foot of the mountains, this is a wonderful place, either for active people such as walkers and climbers or for those who simply want to relax and enjoy the surroundings. Rock climbing is within walking distance at nearby Cwm Silyn and Cwm Dulyn, also at Tremadog, a 10 minute drive away. Most of the main Snowdonia crags are within a 30 minute drive. We are at the western end of the Nantlle ridge, a popular and highly recommended walk. Shorter walks around the village and nearby lakes start right outside the door. The village itself is at the end of the line, that is to say it's not on the way to anywhere so without through traffic it's very quiet and peaceful for those wishing to get away from it all.
I should also mention the historic Welsh castles, of which there are several nearby. Perhaps the best known is at the port town of Caernarfon which is also a world heritage site. The town's narrow streets also contain examples of Georgian architecture as well as pavement cafe's, pubs, restaurants and the Galeri theatre and venue. There are other fine castles at the attractive towns of Criccieth, Harlech and at Dolbadarn near Llanberis. For the archeologically inclined there are numerous sites locally including the Iron Age hilltop fort at Tre'r Ceiri, a pleasant walk and a superb viewpoint.
There are shops 2 miles away (Co-op and others), supermarkets in Caernarfon and Porthmadog, both about 10 miles away and a great pub/restaurant with excellent food 5 miles down the road. Although we're up on the mountain it's just a 15 minute drive to the nearest beach and there are plenty of others throughout the Llyn peninsula, most within 30/40 minutes drive.
There are hourly buses to and from Caernarfon from the bus stop which is 50 metres away. For buses to Porthmadog and further south it's a 15 minute walk to the main road. Nearest railway stations are at Bangor, 20 miles north and Porthmadog, 10 miles south.
This is something of a neglected yet beautiful and tranquil corner of the National Park (If you want to join the crowds go to Llanberis!) That's what makes the place unique and is my reason for living here.

I have put some information in the property details section. There are also numerous websites covering the Snowdonia National Park and the Llyn peninsula which are worth researching.
As above, please take a look at the property details section and above mentioned websites.
