Snowdon House has been welcoming visitors to the National park for almost 50 years and is central for all the best that North Wales has to offer. The house sits in the Llanberis Pass with the mountains of Snowdonia rising to 3600ft on all sides.

The new fully fitted kitchen/dining area has the luxury of underfloor heating. There are two separate lounge areas both with wood burning stoves in feature inglenooks with TV and Wi-Fi available.
At the end of a hard day on the hills you can enjoy a refreshing sauna in the 4 person sauna and relax in one of the two comfortable lounge areas. Each of these has a log burning stove in feature inglenooks - the one in the original cottage section dates back to when the house is thought to have been built in 1733. There is a TV in one lounge with the second lounge area intended to be more of a peaceful retreat at the end of the day where you can relax and listen to music or use the Wi-Fi connection.
Or you can head for the terrace with a glass of wine and take in the amazing mountain scenery rising 3000ft above the valley floor. There is a BBQ and the border is planted with herbs that you can use for your cooking. For the ultimate relaxation slip into the new luxury 6 person hot tub where you can relax and soak away the aches and pains of a hard day on the hills while you enjoy the stunning mountain views towards Snowdon, The Glyders and Crib Goch and plan tomorrow's adventure.
You can leave the car as the Sherpa bus service passes the house at twenty minute intervals during the summer, going in both directions around Snowdon. From the house you can walk to some of the best climbing in the British Isles and scrambling is available directly opposite the house.
As well as the hill walking, climbing and scrambling that are within walking distance, a few miles from the house you can visit Llanberis the gateway to Snowdonia. Here you can take a steam train to the summit on the Snowdon Mountain railway, visit the Welsh Slate museum, try out the Ropes and Ladders adventure park or stroll around the Padarn Country park. For the more adventurous you can do your Paddy diving certificate in Vivian Quarry. A short drive away you'll find the Menai Straits, award winning beaches and the castles at Caernarfon and Penrhyn.

Guestbook comments from the manager
My girlfriend and her family decided to do something special for their fathers 70th. They decided on a weekend in a cottage. After much deliberation over where to go, Llanberis seemed ideal. Then came the of hurdle of which cottage to book. After scouring the web Snowdon house fitted the bill perfectly (8 adults 2 children and a dog). We booked 2 months in advance with no problems, everything was well organised and there was even a happy birthday banner up and complimentary bottle of bubbly waiting for us on arrival. Jim and Anne (the owners) were delightful to deal with and more than happy to advise us on anything we asked. The first thing we noticed were the glorious surrounding mountain views. For us, the kitchen was an important factor. We all fitted around the table and with underfloor heating it served well as a very social room. The main living room was also large enough for us all to enjoy together. The slightly smaller snug was very cosy and allowed a more chilled atmosphere, both having log burner heaters. All the bedrooms were more than adequate and with three bathrooms there was no queuing !! We didn't use the sauna but the hot tub was fantastic. On the whole we all had a brilliant weekend and would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
