The cottage is surrounded by some of Wales most beautiful mountains and is also ideally situated to see castles, historic gardens and beaches. A great location for couples and families.

A cosy cottage in a lovely location
Warm, cosy and well-equipped in a lovely location with some wonderful walking and running either from the door or within a short drive.
It was little bit cramped for four with just one bathroom although we realised it would be and that doesn't put us off from wanting to return.
Very friendly neighbours. An excellent place to unwind with some quality time in the hills.
What a peaceful place
We had a wonderfully relaxing 4 night stay in this beautiful location. The cottage had everything we needed and more. We will stay there again!
Cosy & well equipped but not clean
Cosy cottage with everything we needed for a mid winter short break.
Didn’t receive arrival info until we were there and a bit disappointed that the cottage obviously hadn’t been cleaned prior to our arrival with the previous guests dirty linen & towels still there.
We enjoyed exploring the surrounding area and our dog loved Morfa Bychan beach.
It was ok
The final details arrived in my email box on the day I left so I missed them. I could have done with them before that. I have just read them now on my return.The cottage location is wonderful for local walks and also ideal for getting about the rest of Snowdonia. There was a stain on the new looking mattress protector which affected my entire feeling about the place. This was probably an oversight. I would go again for the location and I was very warm and lacked for nothing.
Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry things weren't as good as they could have been. The cottage letter should have been sent to you 42 days before your arrival automatically and then a reminder before your stay. I will check the settings to see what has happened.
Wonderful stay in a simply stunning location in a homely and warm cottage.
Fantastic stay in a simply stunning location in a homely and warm cottage.
Cosy cottage in beautiful situation
This is a lovely cosy cottage in a beautiful situation. It is surprisingly and generously well equipped for its size and had everything our family of 4 needed for the week (and we loved the reclining sofas!). There are a multitude of walks from the house which could keep you busy for days with no need for driving anywhere but the cottage is also well situated for places like Coed Y Brenin, Bounce Below etc. Although the garden area is small our boys were delighted to find a small football pitch in the village, that was an unexpected and welcome bonus! We definitely hope to return soon.
Croesor is the starting point for climbing Cnicht, a pyramid shaped mountain, and the Moelwyn mountain range. Sarn Helen, a Roman road, goes north west to Beddgelert through Nantmor and the Aberglaslyn Pass, and south east over the shoulder of the Moelwyns to Tan-y-Bwlch and the narrow gauge Ffestiniog Railway, with steam trains to Porthmadog and Blaenau Ffestiniog. The garden at Plas Brondanw (less than 2 miles away) is open to the public; this was the home of Clough Williams-Ellis, the architect of Port Merion, which is 5 miles away. A short drive away are the beach at Morfa Bwchan (Black Roack Sands), castles including Criccieth, Harlech and Caernarfon, slate quarries at Blaenau Ffestiniog, a copper mine near Beddgelert and many other attractions.
