We have just had our second stay at Pen y Bryn and once again had a lovely holiday. The cottage is very cosy and comfortable, just what we would expect from a country cottage in Wales and the quiet location is ideal for a peaceful break, with no tv on you can hear a pin drop in the late evening. The big double bed in the main bedroom adds some extra comfort. When the weather permits it is great to sit outside for meals etc. at the slate table on the front terrace. Whilst being situated in the hills it is also 10-15 mins from the beach and also lovely picturesque villages such as Beddgelert. We took our dog and had the choice of the hills, the beach or nearby lakes for walking. We will definitely be returning in the future.
