Glan Y Gors Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Glan y Gors is a semi-detached, stone built cottage, situated in an elevated position in the village of Dinorwig, five miles from Llanberis in North Wales. This cottage sleeps up to twelve people and has four bedrooms, consisting of two twin rooms, one of which is on the ground floor, and two family rooms with a double and single bed, one of which has a four poster bed, as well as a ground floor family shower room with a walk/wheel-in shower, plus two first floor family bathrooms. The cottage also has a large and well-equipped kitchen with a dining area, and a large sitting room with woodburning stove and large bed settee. Outside, this cottage has ample off road parking and an enclosed terraced garden with garden furniture and BBQ. Glan y Gors is a wonderful family holiday home, close to many places of interest.

Llanberis is dwarfed by the imposing Mount Snowdon; the highest mountain in England and Wales. Many walkers and climbers are drawn by the challenge of Snowdon, but it is also possible to experience the views from the summit by taking the Snowdon Mountain Railway. Llanberis is located in the Snowdonia National Park and offers other attractions for those interested in unspoilt scenery, abundant wildlife and the variety of activities offered by the great outdoors. For a more relaxed approach, Llanberis is well-served by restaurants, pubs and shops and there are a number of tourist attractions within a short drive, such as Caernarfon Castle and National trust properties at Penrhyn and Plas Newydd.

Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.

Oil central heating with woodburning stove. Electric cooker, microwave, fridge, freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, TV with Freeview, video, CD/music centre, WiFi. All fuel and power inc. in rent.

We had an amazing time at the cottage. There was plenty of space for us all. This is the first time any of us have been on a holiday like this one and all of us can't wait to come back again. The owner was lovely and very helpful and the views were spectacular.

The house was very spacious and very well equipped. The garden was great, very good for both adults and children. It was also in a splendid location for going to all kinds of attractions and for walks directly from the house. We enjoyed our stay there very much.

We had a lovely stay at this cottage . It was very clean, comfortable and was well equipped. The wet room was very good for my daughter with special needs. The WiFi and Sky TV was an added bonus! There is plenty to do around the local area and is a very beautiful area to stay in.

This property is in an excellent location. It is peaceful with great views. I took my large telescope and picked out Jupiter. My disabled nephew was with the group and he had the downstairs bedroom giving him his own wheelchair shower. All of the rooms were exceptional for a holiday let and all in my party loved the cottage.

It was spacious but felt very cosy and homely. The heating was excellent and warmed every part of the house. The view from the back of the house was lovely and the location was great. Three bathrooms was good for our large family and the living room was big enough for us all to be comfortable in. The kitchen had every utensil you could want and the large table easily seated ten and could of squeezed a few more in. On the whole everything was superb.

The property met the needs of four generations. Lots of nice touches.
Mr Cox

The cottage was well placed for outdoor activities in Snowdonia. Well appointed with all you could wish for in creature comforts. The owners had made every attempt to make it inviting, with those little things that make all the differance.
Mrs Dolman

Comfortable and cosy cottage. Lots of room for six adults and six children under six. Ideal position with plenty to do without traveling long distances, lovely beaches, walks and places to visit. Could easily have spent another week there. Lovely weather which always helps!
Mr Crook

We had a really good time in the cottage. The location of the property was such that we didn't have to travel very far, as there was more than enough to do in the local town. We would recommend this property to any of our friends. Many thanks for an enjoyable stay.

The cottage is in very quiet, tranquil surroundings and walking in Snowdonia is only a short drive away. My party enjoyed two and a half days of excellent walking/scrambling on Wales' highest peaks.

A great house, with plenty of room for everyone. A lovely location. The kids and the dog loved it!
Miss Harwood
November 2006
Glan Y Gors Cottage was beautiful, we could not have asked for a more homely and well equipped cottage. Everything was just as good, if not better than, described and the owners were lovely. As for the surroundings, wow, it does not get any more tranquil and picturesque than this. I would recommend not only this cottage but Sykes Cottages to anyone. I know I will certainly be booking again. Many thanks for a perfect holiday.
Miss Harwood
July 2006
The cottage felt so homely straight away, there was no need to settle in. It is in the most amazing and stunning countryside and gives a new meaning to peace and quiet, yet is only a short drive away from amenities etc (ie Llamberis). The cottage itself was more than we could have hoped for and easily accomodated all 10 of us.
Mr De Brucker
August 2006
We enjoyed the beautiful nature and surroundings. The cottage is a good starting point to visit North Wales. We had the opportunity to see most interesting tourist places and spots during our fortnight stay.
Mrs Wearden
April 2005
Cottage was as described, and extremely comfortable and well-equipped. The 3 bathrooms made life easier for a large family group. During a cold week we appreciated the efficient heating system, and that heating costs were included. Helpful information was provided about local take-aways and restaurants, including some sample menus. Bedrooms were a good size, with storage facilities. Lovely views.
Mrs Rault

Everything was perfect.
Mrs Hume
December 2004
I would like to say how much my family and I enjoyed our holiday at Glan Y Gors. There is so much to do in North Wales and the house made a fine base from which to venture out each day. The bedrooms were excellent in terms of layout and size. There was more than enough storage, mirrors, etc. The cottage offers tremendous peace and quiet.
Mrs Murphy
December 2004
The cottage was in a nice quiet location with easy access to all tourist locations and routes to other parts of North Wales. Excellent information on places to visit and a good variety of places to dine. Comfortable, very well equipped and homely especially for rainy evenings in (of which there were many!!). Finally, the welsh bread and fresh flowers to greet our arrival was a welcome sight.
Mr Williams
December 2004
We found Dinorwic an ideal place from which to tour northern Snowdonia. Glan y Gors lived up to our expectations. There were several good restaurants in nearby Llanberis and the Spar shop in Deinolen was a handy five minutes drive away. The Slate museum and Electric Mountain Power Station were well worth the visit. We would certainly not hesitate to recommend the property to any friends visiting the area.
Mr Fellingham

Excellent property - would highly recommend it to others.

Lovely character cottage, beautiful views over a beautiful location. Good spacious rooms, lovely log burning stove - all in all fantastic stay for 9 of us aged from 5 - 83!!

A hidden gem with a few flaws but still a gem despite this! We found this place during a web trawl. We were looking for a place in Wales with wheelchair access as well as welcoming pets and we needed four bedrooms with one of them being adapted for a wheelchair user so this place fitted the bill quite nicely. Be aware though Glan y Gors is quite isolated, a car is a must and be prepared for winding roads that go bump in the night and day as you make your way to your destination. Sheep are prevalent, as are walkers, serious bikers and even horse riders. There is ample parking outside the cottage and if you don't have any mobility, or you don't feel you can negotiate the steep concrete slope, you can drive to the kitchen front door and park up. Entry is through the kitchen door which is wide enough to take my outsize wheelchair. The kitchen is big, there is a table for 8 in it, along with a hob, fridge, stove, washing machine, microwave, toaster, kettle, all the usual kitchen utility aids. Be aware the microwave doesn't switch off, it heats your food but keeps on heating it! Well I said this little gem had a flaw or two! Plus some of the pans have seen far better days but the eating utensils from plates to cups are of a good quality. Sharp knives, bring your own, they do supply cutting knives but they are blunt to say the least. Bedding is supplied but bring a towel as these are not included in your stay. The adapted bathroom is roomy, a shower chair is supplied, the loo has all the railings In place but be aware it is right next to a hot radiator and the plinth the toilet itself is on has been in situ since 1998 and needs replacing because when you sit on the loo you rock somewhat. One of the cottages little quirks that the owner says she will sort out. Until then just take a sea sickness tablet and try not to look at any paintings of ships riding waves in a raging sea whilst perched upon the pot. The lounge is spacious, with another dining table and chairs available: there is a log burner to warm your bones on a cold night but there is also good central heating throughout the cottage. There is wifi, but BT apparently was in the process of repairing it during our stay. This is a new addition to the property so there are teething problems that need sorting out. In the adapted room downstairs you can get 4G so for the cyber lovers, all is not lost. The TV had to be replaced as it was faulty, but in all fairness the owner did sort this as soon as we told them there was a problem. It's not a big TV but it is brand new! A flight of stairs leads to three further bedrooms and two bathrooms. In theory a person in a wheelchair can access the rooms upstairs via a lift outside but this is not working, the owner is trying to get a second hand one to replace it but as it is obsolete this is proving somewhat difficult. There is plenty of room for your dog to run around in, a closed in garden that you can use, remember to clean up after your pooch though, and as long as you are careful you can walk the lonely roads further afield if the fancy takes you. This is not a perfect property but it ticks all the boxes I need it to tick. It's adapted enough for me, its quirks are my kind of quirks, plus my bedroom has a fabulous view, the family dog can come along, and it is remote enough for peace and quiet, but near enough to the likes of Bangor to get your big town fix without having to travel for hours. You are also near to loads of places of historical interest, you can get your mountain fix by admiring Snowdonia, and if you are a fan of trains, old and new, then this is the place for you. Would I come back again? Yes, on the provision, that the loo ceases to rock on its own axis, I am all for new and different experiences, but that rocking bogs are a no no.
