This is one of the nicest cottages we have ever stayed in.
This was our second stay here for 2 weeks this time. Our two tiny terriers stay with us.
As soon as you walk in you feel relaxed, the welcome tray is full of goodies & dog treats plus milk, there is also a basket of wood & things to make your first nights fire with.
Situated up the end of a quiet dead end lane, there is no traffic! It is so peaceful.
You are literally on the Carnedds, with so many walks from the door you don't have to use your car for as long as your stay is.
Plenty of parking for two cars.
There are fantastic walks up to Carnedd Llewelyn with stunning views across to the Glyderau & Tryfan, Snowdon peeks through the range.
The cottage is decorated beautifully & has a high standard for cleanliness, it is warm & very comfortable, it had everything we needed for a two week stay.
The wood burner is efficient and packs out the heat.
The bath with a shower is a great place to unwind after a day's hiking plus the underfloor heating is great for those cold days.
The balcony is fabulous, a sun trap with great views of the mountains, super sunsets and when we were up there; sitting out on the wooden bench at 4am with a hot toddy watching the moon eclipse.
The garden to the back has been left semi wild which we prefer because it attracts so much wildlife & all sorts of birds, to the side there is a walled in lawn and a very useful washing line,
The walk into town is down a steep hill with lots of different ways to go & takes us about 15 minutes to the Indian we use, our walk back up takes about 30-40 mins, but we aren't in a hurry and have hiked most of the day. When we are tired we just drive, lots of free parking in town.
Bethesda has everything you need , pubs, food shops , takeaways, cafes.
Zip world is only down the hill , it's an amazing experience & on the tour up the quarry ( and its high) you can see Ty Isel and the mountains behind the cottage.
In the car, ten minutes up the road is another hiking area; lake Idwal, Glyderau, Tryfan, such a stunning area for easy or hard walks, or just sit and watch climbers climb these huge slabs of rock.
The cottage is superb and set in a fantastic area, you cannot get better than this!
