There is good salmon fishing on the River Conwy and the River Lledr, as well as some fine golf courses, amongst a host of other things to do and see.

You’re in luck if you like castles; Conwy, Harlech, Caernarfon, Plas Mawr, Penryn, Dolwydden are within easy driving distance. The true spectacle is Mount Snowdon, Wales’ highest peak and a comparatively easy summit to reach. There’s even a railway up part of it.

You can cook up a storm with the four-burner gas hob with electric oven and grill, while there is also a bread maker and Nespresso coffee machine plus cafetières. In addition, you also have a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer in the utility area opposite the staircase to the second double bedroom. The living room is large and full of character, with cosy sofas clustered around another wood burner at one end and an additional dining table and chairs at the other. There is an iPod docking station in in this room and a TV/DVD. You will find a good selection of novels, reference books, maps and games. There are two bedrooms, both with double beds. Fluffy white towels and bathrobes are also provided.

This cottage is amazing, very well equipped, welcome pack etc. It is up a very steep track, through two gates, surrounded by fields, but this is what appealed to us. The views are fantastic, and at night no light pollution so great for looking at the stars. it is within driving distance of several good places to eat, and lots of really good walkingRead more.

Lovely, lovely cottage. Lots of walks, both local and further afield. Fab waterfalls, two scorching days, followed by copious rain, but still gorgeous. We will be putting the word out.
