North Wales has been attracting tourists for many years and Snowdon House has been providing accommodation for the last 50 years. There is something for everyone in North Wales. The mountains of Snowdonia surround the house and you can find something challenging to do ever day whether it be climbing, walking or scrambling - all a short walk from the house. The area has many historic castles, including the World Heritage site at Caernarfon, many stately homes and historic buildings.
The top ten attractions in North wales are mostly within ten miles of the house and include adventure parks, steam railways, museums and visitor farms. The coast is only ten miles from the house and has a number of blue flag beaches and spectacular coastal scenery.
The Menai Straits. Anglesey, Caernarfon Castle, Penrhyn and Dolbadarn Castles, the National Slate Museum and quarry, or any of the many paths up Snowdon are all within a short drive of the house.

Or for a change you can visit Chester for the shopping or the world renowned Zoo or take an exciting day trip on the ferry from Holyhead into the heart of Dublin.
Snowdon House is located at the foot of Snowdon in the LLanberis Pass, which is the most popular and spectacular part of the Snowdonia National Park. All the best climbing and walking is literally on your doorstep with the footpath for the Glyders and Devil's Kitchen just 200m from the house.
LLanberis is the gateway to Snowdonia and deserves it's reputation as the centre of tourism in North Wales. On the shores of LLyn Padard with the magnificent mountain scenery in the background it's a great place for families to enjoy. You can feed the ducks on the lake or visit the Slate Meseum and the quarry as well as the original houses of the miners.
There are numerous craft shops as well as the steam railway around the lake ot the world famous cog railway to the top of Snowdon. If you fancy something more challenging there is the Ropes and Ladders attraction, you can get your Paddy certificate for scuba diving in Vivian quarry as well as water sports on LLyn Padarn and endless opportunities for climbing and walking and pony trekking. There are 6 golf courses within 25 miles of the house and all welcome visitors.

"better than expected......"
We booked this for a group holiday with friends and children aged 6 - 9 from 3 families. This was our first holiday together and made easier by the size of the house and each of us having our own floo… More

We were a group of 5 couples staying in Snowdonia to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday.
Finding the house was easy and made even easier by the owners Jim and Anne covering the exterior of the house with "Happy 50th Birthday" balloons.
The car park directly across the road from the house could comfortably accommodate 8 cars.
The house sits at the very foot of Mount Snowdon on the Llanberis pass and the views from every window and doorway were spectacular.
On entering the house there were further birthday decorations, a card and even a bottle of bubbly in the wine chiller fridge (a lovely touch).
There were 5 bedrooms which were all adequate and clean, the beds were comfortable.
The 2 bathrooms on the first floor were spacious and the showers were nice and hot. we never used the front living area as we much preferred the comfort of the lounge area next to the kitchen, which was handy for getting the beers in. and also there was a 3rd bathroom next to that lounge.
The kitchen was well equipped and fully functional to prepare 10 cooked breakfasts each day. It had a beautiful large table which sat all 10 of us very comfortably.
We only used the sauna once but made use of the outdoor hot tub spa almost every day which could sit 6 people.
The Vaynol Arms public house was a short walk away, out of the front door, turn right and a 1/2 mile walk down the road. There was street lighting on route, but I chose to walk at the front of the group wearing a head torch when we were returning to the house from the pub.
The pub had a good choice of menu which was excellent value for money and a good selection of beers including 4 real ale hand pulls. The food was served quickly and was absolutely delicious. the staff were very friendly and attentive.
Everyone of our group has said that if they are ever visiting Snowdonia or North Wales again, they will certainly be booking Snowdon House. I know I will certainly be coming back.
I have no hesitation in recommending this house to anyone, it certainly met and exceeded all of our expectations.

"Comfortable, welcoming house, ideal for family getaway"
I stayed at Snowdon house with the whole family (kids (ages 4 to 6) parents and grandparents). The house was large enough to accommodate us all without feeling at all squashed - the big kitchen and dining area was a particular delight. The hot tub was a huge hit with the kids and we were lucky to get the weather to make the most of it. The owner came by to make sure we were settled in and kindly brought extra towels in case we needed them. The only thing to watch out for if you go with kids is the main road, which had some fairly speedy traffic - the front gate has a good latch, though so it wasn't a problem.

"Snowdon House, we will most certainly be back!"
After looking at the pictures of Snowdon House that are available when booking, my expectation of what we were getting were pretty high. When we got there however, these expectations were blown out of the water!
The cottage is beautifully surrounded by mountains and there is literally nowhere to turn without seeing breath-taking scenery. The house itself is beautiful and has more than enough space for even a large number of people. The House included every amenity that anyone would need and much more.
With beautiful mountain trail walks just a 2 minute walk away you don't have to look far for adventure and after a good days rambling, there is nothing better that coming back and relaxing in the hot tub with friends.

"Family break at Snowdon House"
Thanks so much for the use of your fab house, we couldn't have wished for a better stay.
The property was perfect for our family needs, the views of the mountains were breathtaking, especially form the comfort of the hot tub, which entertained the children and adults endlessly.
The house was clean, well equipped, very comfortable and ideally located for the pub! There was nothing we could have wanted for as the weather was perfect too!
Here's to our next stay!
Thanks Anne and Jim

"Everything we hoped for."
My girlfriend and her family decided to do something special for their fathers 70th. They decided on a weekend in a cottage. After much deliberation over where to go, Llanberis seemed ideal. Then came the of hurdle of which cottage to book. After scouring the web Snowdon house fitted the bill perfectly (8 adults 2 children and a dog). We booked 2 months in advance with no problems, everything was well organised and there was even a happy birthday banner up and complimentary bottle of bubbly waiting for us on arrival. Jim and Anne (the owners) were delightful to deal with and more than happy to advise us on anything we asked. The first thing we noticed were the glorious surrounding mountain views. For us, the kitchen was an important factor. We all fitted around the table and with underfloor heating it served well as a very social room. The main living room was also large enough for us all to enjoy together. The slightly smaller snug was very cosy and allowed a more chilled atmosphere, both having log burner heaters. All the bedrooms were more than adequate and with three bathrooms there was no queuing !! We didn't use the sauna but the hot tub was fantastic. There are no negatives to mention however, to be hypercritical the T.V. is a little small and the water pressure slightly low, not a problem once we got to grips with it. On the whole we all had a brilliant weekend and would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
Thank you very much for your very positive review of Snowdon House. It's great to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay as we know how important holidays are especially when it's a special occasion like your Father's birthday. You're right about the television and this will now be changed for a 32 inch version which should be better suited to the size of the room. The low water pressure turned out to be caused by recent works carried out to the village water supply network by Welsh Water and they have since been to the house and restored full pressure so thanks for letting us know about the problem.
I was a pleasure having you to stay and we hope you will stay with us in the future. Thanks again.

Thank you very much for your great review of Snowdon House and we're so pleased you enjoyed your stay in Snowdonia. Great to hear you tried the hot tub - as you say taking in the scenery and relaxing is the perfect end (or start!)to the day.
We hope you'll come back and stay when the weather is a little kinder and you can make more use of the outside spaces. Thanks again for your review and we look forward to seeing you again. All the best.
