The North Wales region
Snowdonia is a region with a wealth of interesting history,sites and activities, people of any age will find something different to do and be spoilt for choice.
But if you simply want to unwind and de-stress then the scenery itself will do this for you, even in the winter.
Llanberis and Caernarfon are the closest towns to Elidir Fawr and in each there is a wealth of history, Caernarfon with its Majestic 13th Century Castle and town walls; the Station for the Welsh Highland railway which will take you through the most beautiful and dramatic scenery on route to Beddgelert which is another fascinating village or visit the creative Arts Centre at the dockside in Caernarfon,called the Galeri for an evening production.
Llanberis is also packed with exciting things to do and see with the Snowdon Mountain railway, Snowdon to climb, with the new Eryri Restaurant at its summit, or visit the Welsh slate museum, Electric Mountain and High Ropes course .
The beaches and lakes in this area are unspoilt and are well worth visiting with the beautiful white beaches of the LLyn Penisula are a short drive away.
A little further afield is the Italianate Village of Portmerion a very popular attraction as are the Castles of Harlech, Criccieth and Dolbadarn the whole of this area is a Pandoras box waiting to be opened.

"An absolutely perfect place to stay!"
We'd already read glowing reviews of Elidir Fawr so our expectations were quite high and we weren't disappointed. On arrival we were greeted by the lovely Maggie who showed us round and explained everything that we needed to know together with plenty of good local knowledge on where to go/what to see etc.
The property was absolutely gorgeous; tastefully decorated and furnished and spotlessly clean to the extent that we couldn't believe our luck! Waiting for us in the kitchen was a freshly baked loaf, along with grapes, a selection of cheeses and a most welcome bottle of red wine! The kitchen itself was extremely well equipped with every utensil and item of crockery that you're likely to need during your stay.
The bedroom was fantastic with plenty of clothes storage and a lovely en-suite shower room - a perfect night's sleep is virtually guaranteed.
Locationwise it's perfect for your North Wales holiday; slap bang in between Caernarfon and Llanberis and only a short drive from Anglesey and the Lleyn peninsula.
We really can't praise it enough and we'll definitely be booking again the next time we want to stay in the area. 10 out of 10!

Location Location Location that's what they say! unbelievable high standard cottage from the welcome from maggie and john to the finer details of a bottle of wine and cheeseboard on arrival.You have to stay at this beautiful cottage to appreciate it from a small lake at bottom of the field to their veg and herb plot.nothing was any trouble for maggie and john from keeping you informed before your arrival to local interests mine being the local pub a 5 min walk downhill,to the local bakery also a 5min uphill! the weather wasn't to kind whilst we were there but a lovely warm walk in shower or deep bath and underfloor heating ever present,who cares! so cast away all modern day worries and book at Eagle Hill,oh and watch out for the Heron,John loves him!
