The North Wales region
The cottage is an ideal base from which to explore all that Snowdonia and North Wales has to offer.
Nearby attractions include: Snowdon Mountain Railway, the beautiful Bodnant Gardens, the fantasy village of Portmeirion, Llechwedd Slate Caverns, Ffestiniog Steam Railway, Sygun Copper Mines, various Lake Railways, Castles at Caernarfon, Conwy, Beaumaris and Penrhyn, the famous Swallow Falls, delightful Fairy Glen and much more.
Walking and climbing have always been popular past-times, however, Llanberis now has a growing reputation for all manor of outdoor activities including watersports, pony trekking, cycling, paragliding and diving.
Padarn Country Park (a short walk from the cottage) is the setting for the National Slate Museum, the Llanberis Lake Railway and many other attractions.
The Slate Museum has recently been relaunched following an investment of £1.6 million lottery grant, bringing back to life the inheritance of the North Wales slate industry which roofed the industrial revolution.
Adjacent land was once part of Dinorwig Slate Quarries, employing over 3,000 men, and you can explore the footpaths created over the years by the quarrymen directly from Blue Peris Cottage.
Llyn Padarn offers a wide range of watersports including fun boats, canoeing, windsurfing and sailing at Padarn Water Sports Centre.
Adjacent to the Country Park is Dinorwig Power Station, Europe's largest pumped storage hydroelectric scheme. From the visitor centre (free of charge) learn how electricity is produced at the pumped power station, and how the Power Station fits into the National Grid. Tours (charge) start from here descending deep inside ancient Elidir mountain's labyrinth of dark an imposing tunnels, visitors will experience one of man's greatest engineering achievements.
Within a twenty minute walk from the cottage is the Snowdon Mountain Railway, the country's only public rack and pinion railway, which rises to within 66ft of the summit of the highest mountain in England and Wales. On fine days the views from the train and summit are breathtaking. The view from the top takes in the Isle of Man and the Wicklow mountains in Ireland.

"Unique and Beautifully Appointed Cottage in a Stunning Location"
We spent a fabulous weekend at Blue Peris in June 2013 with our two children (aged 2 and 9). This characterful cottaged is beautifully appointed with some unique and quirky elements and great attention to detail. The main living room is a very relaxing space with a large inglenook and wood burner forming the central feature. The walls are adorned with local artwork, and there are all kinds of interesting antiques and collectables dotted around the cottage. The new addition of the separate annexe provides an exceptionally well appointed, light and airy living/sleeping area for teenagers or grandparents who might want a bit of space to themselves.
The mezzanine TV lounge and balcony (from which there are stunning views and big skies) was a real hit with the children, not least because there was a great selection of games and DVDs (plus an XBox which we didn't use) for them to borrow. The children also loved the garden, which is a magical space with a real sense of tranquility.
The home-from-home luxuries, such as the spacious and well appointed kitchen, quality bedding and super comfortable matresses, free WiFi, and complementary milk and bara brith made our stay even more relaxing than we could have hoped.
I have no hesitation what so ever in recommending Blue Peris Cottage.

A perfect view of Snowdon in a quiet, peaceful location.
We have stayed in many cottages over the years and this one is definitely our favourite. It is well equipped, has a lovely interior layout & a beautiful garden.
The abandoned slate mine is within walking distance from the cottage and awe inspiring and a walk to Llanberis takes about 10 minutes down a magical path.
