The North Wales / Snowdonia/Gwynedd region
Snowdonia's National Park is an area of outstanding natural beauty with breathtaking mountainous scenery and stunning golden sandy beaches. The award winning Harlech beach, with its stretch of long, golden sands is a natural lure for many guests, as is the medieval castle and antiques shops. Borth-y-Guest and Criccieth are delightful coastal village which retain much charm from yesteryear. Birdwatching and mountain biking are popular pursuits in the area – many guests explore the woodlands of Coed-y-Brenin with it’s mountain bike tracks and bird watching hideouts. Betws-y-Coed, with it’s famous raging Swallow Falls is well worth a visit.
Beddgelert is a popular spot for those wishing to amble by the river, not forgetting the Welsh cream teas which are on offer from tea shops in the village. There are many paths which lead up Snowdon - the path from Beddgelert (Watkins path) is particularly popular. Mountain bikes can be hired from http://www.beddgelertbikes.co.uk/
The Llan Ffestiniog area
Due to its perfect location, the cottage is ideally suited for exploring the rugged terrain of this unspoilt part of Wales. Surrounding the cottage are public footpaths with running streams which criss cross fields leading to mountains beyond. The village itself is a few minutes walk: handy for emergency provisions or a relaxing evening drink and meal. The famous Ffestiniog railway starts from Blaenau Ffestiniog 3 miles away. This is ‘must do’ activity as the historical engine winds its way through breathtaking scenery until it reaches journey’s end in Portmadog 9 miles away.

A small rustic little cottage with breathtaking views just over the road of the hills. Not really ideal for preparing an evening meal if you are a family of four because of the small oven. The cottage was clean and tidy and had plenty of information available. We would definately book again but would love to see a proper sized oven, that, we feel, was the only downfall.

We enjoyed our family stay at the cottage very much.
All rooms are well set up and we had enough space comfortably for 2 children, 7 & 11 respectively.
The log burner helps creates a warm environment for family evenings in.
The location enabled us to easily reach the coast and Snowdonia as well as the local attractions including the Slate Mine.

Traditional welsh cottage which is extremely cosy and with lovely inviting log fire.
Fabulous location to explore the Snowdonia National Park and drive the car on the beach at Porthmadoc! and lose money in the penny arcades!
We had a lovely long week-end and left feeling very chilled.
