Lovely Cozy Cottage

Had a great weekend in this lovely cottage, the location is perfect for visiting Snowdonia National Park and the beautiful coast.

Very clean, warm and comfortable quirky cottage. Everything you could possibly need was provided, a real home from home, and there was even a welcome basket with lots of goodies.

Nice little garden with an area to sit and enjoy the beautiful views

I would definitely recommend this accommodation

Very Cosy

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the cottage to find a nice box of complementary goodies waiting for was well set up with 2 bathrooms, washing machine, TV and wireless.

The cottage is handy to Caernarfon castle and the rest of Snowdonia. What we really enjoyed however, was exploring the old Dorothea Slate mine just a few minutes walk from the cottage. It was very interesting. I would definitely recommend snowdrop cottage to anyone.

Charming country cottage house was perfect for 5 adults looking for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for the 5 of us (2 couples and 1 single) to have a relaxing country trip. The welcome basket was very welcome indeed, after a long rainy drive. The instructions for the house were perfect (including transportation details) and the welcome binder had interesting details about the cottage itself and the surrounding area.

Cosy little cottage

  • 5 of 5

A very cute property has everything you could need. Due to the character of the property you do have to mind your head. Suitable for a family with children it was a bit of a squeeze with 4 adults and a dog . Location was good for exploring Snowdonia although there is nothing within walking distance it's easy enough to drive around and there's a good taxi company if you want a few drinks in the nearest pub (15min drive). I would defenatly book this cottage again if visiting North wales x
