"Nice cottage, good value and handy location"

Glanllyn is a well-equipped little house, and very comfortable. We were a bit concerned at having a key meter for electricity, but even needing heating on (and it warmed up quickly) and doing a fair b… More

"Ideal accommodation with benefit of all home comforts"

We enjoyed our stay at Glanllyn immensely and the local people were so friendly and welcoming we almost felt we'd lived there for years! Helen (the owner) couldn't do enough in accommodating… More

"Tidy and cosy terraced house"

My daughter & I had a comfortable short break in July. The house is ideally placed to visit the beaches and mountains of Snowdonia. Local shop nearby & large Tescos at Porthmadog.

"What a real Gem of a find!!!"

What a fantastic break we have just had at this charming little cottage. The owners were delightful and nothing was too much trouble. We found the property easily and it was everything it was advertised to be. It was great to be made to feel so welcome in bringing our dogs on holiday with us too! There was plenty to do and the three nights were over far too quickly, making us determined to return very soon.
Helen and Andy have equipped the cottage perfectly and have covered everything in our view. All in all an excellent find and a place we will be using again! Thank you.

"Lovely Clean House & Loads To Do Locally!"

Had a wonderful stay here and would not hesitate to return to the same accommodation. Could have done with a week though rather than 3 nights! Started well with fantastic swift and detailed email correspondence with the owner which made booking last minute a breeze. Nothing was too much trouble.

Found the property to be exactly as described and in immaculate condition with a few very nice extra touches to make our stay a good one. Very quiet street just a couple of minutes walk from the local amenities, including a good Indian restaurant,The Lemon Tree who have a £7.50 buffet deal on a Sunday, Monday & Tuesday night which is ideal if like us you tire yourself out and need somewhere to eat and walk home from.

The house is very well placed with so much to do locally without having to travel far, so much so that we didn't get to do everything we'd have liked to have done. Portmeirion is literally 5-10 mins drive away and well worth a day on it's own. Porthmadog Station is only around 5 minutes further away by car and from there we took the Ffestiniog Railway line on the restored steam train and visited the slate caverns before coming back again on the train. The deserted beach reached via the cliff walks past the seafront at Borth Y Gest was definitely a high point too after a busy day, as was the village of Beddegelert which we did after Portmeirion. There are a couple of nice castles to see a short drive away too - if you get time!
