Great little place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a short mid week break at the end of September. The owners were there to greet us on arrival and we're very friendly, after the initial meet we didnt see them for the rest of the stay. However they were nearby incase we needed them.

The annex its self was lovely, nicely decorated with a homely feel. Towels were provided, and the place was spotless!

There were lots of nice walks right on your doorstep with stunning views! There is also a convenience shop a short distance away for any bits and bobs required.

We would definitely stay again!

Clean and comfortable holiday cottage.

  • 4 of 5

We spent 5 nights in this peaceful cottage. It was clean and comfortable. A pleasure to come back to after a day of walking. The log fire made it very cosy.The owners were friendly but not intrusive. Was able to walk to the Llanberis Slate Museum from the cottage, through the woodland. The museum is well worth a visit.

Fantastic in every way

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous property we discovered!. Absolutely perfect for a get away from it all break. With stunning views including Snowdon (and the Llanberis path walk). So much to see and do in the area. You cannot fail to be impressed by the property and the owners could not have been more accommodating and friendly. Our only decision now is not if but when we can return.

Lovely little cottage. Perfect for a couple wanting to discover Snowdonia.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was comfortable. It was fun to sleep upstairs in the mezzanine and using the log burner added to the homely feeling. It offers lovely views on a lake with beautiful mountains in the background.

The property was spotlessly clean and the owners were very friendly.

We would recommend this cottage to our friends.
