This is wild unspoiled Wales and with the exception of the local bakery, little has changed since ancient times. A steep mountain stream runs under a small bridge on the lane that connects the cottage to the road network. A small convenience store is a short stroll away and a traditional pub 'The Royal Oak' 5 minutes on foot. There is one small farm, a church and just 4 more cottages in close proximity with the remainder towering mountains, open fields and marshland for miles around.
In the 15 yrs since purchasing our first overseas rental property we've worked hard to perfect every aspect of the villa rental experience and in 2010 we expanded our range of villas to 1 three bedroom villa, 1 two bedroom villa and 1 one bedroom apartment in some of the most desirable locations. 2 of our family members live permanently in the Canary Islands and are responsible for servicing the properties. At regular intervals we inspect and ensure that standards of maintenance are kept at their very best. For 2012 we've further expanded our range of private rental units to include a refurbished Welsh cottage in an area that has the highest concentration of outdoor activities and attractions in the whole of the UK - Snowdonia. Our association with that area spans 20 yrs.
Andy Want purchased this cottage in 1994
We purchased this 2 bedroom cottage in 1994 and after several months of refurbishment in 2012 it allowed us to further expand our range of private rental units to include this delightful Welsh cottage. The locality is quieter and less developed than the Lake District but many would argue it rivals if not exceeds the Lakes for it's scenery. Additionally the area (Snowdonia) has by far the highest concentration of outdoor activities and attractions in the whole of the UK.

Had a lovely peaceful week at Green Cottage. Well equipped and cozy. Lovely light kitchen / diner. Living room a little dark on a dull day but cozy all the same. Only a 12 minute walk to the pub in Rachub (The Royal Oak or Y Dderwen Frenhinol), which I liked. It's a "real" pub with real local people in it, not some fake gastro-pub. Very friendly and the couple that run it are very nice, friendly people. Green Cottage is situated on a quiet lane by the church and very pretty graveyard, with original, well-kept stones in slate. The cottage is very warm, which my partner liked as she would look for her cardigan if she was in the Sahara, and the log-burner an added bonus. Bathroom done nicely and the shower lovely. The little garden is very peaceful and ideal for dogs as it's fully enclosed. Views from the cottage lovely. The parking is not an issue at all as Llanllechid is such a quiet village - and this coming from someone like me who is always concerned where he leaves his car ! The cottage has very nice neighbours too. Yes I would return.
Well presented and comfortable holiday cottage. Good location for exploring the area. Whilst we were unsure of the parking arrangements i.e. parking away from the property, it didn't pose a problem. It was nice to have a supply of soap and towels which you normally don't expect to get when self catering and well equipped and for a property that allows pets, as non pet owners, we would not have known from the condition and cleanliness of the cottage.
Overall we enjoyed our stay and it was nice to be able to stay in the school summer holidays without paying a premium for the privilege.
This cottage is located among a group of cottages just off a quiet lane. It is lovely and quiet and is well situated for easy access by car to the Snowdonia hills as well as the coast. The cottage is clean, spacious and well equipped. It has central heating and a wood burner, so warm and cosy. The kitchen is light and spacious with a table and chairs and French windows leading to a secluded garden with a bbq if warm enough. There is a pub in the village a short stroll away. We did pop in but it's not what you'd call a traditional country pub. Maybe we picked the wrong night ( big footie match on the screen and card game in progress, no other women punters), but it wasn't really our thing so just stayed for a quick half. It didn't stop us having a lovely weeks stay in a beautiful part of the country, with days tramping in the hills and evenings relaxing over a glass of wine in the evening.
Lovely little cottage in quiet village. Clean, comfortable and surprisingly spacious. It was well equipped and a great base for exploring Anglesey and Snowdonia. Hope to visit again soon. Thank you. Dave, Den & Sandy the dog
WE ALL THOROUGHLY ENJOYED OUR STAY IN GREEN COTTAGE.wE FOUND THE COTTAGE VERY CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE WITH EVERYTHING WE NEEDED.PARKING AWAY FROM THE HOUSE WAS NO PROBLEM.MY HUSBAND [WHO IS 83 ENJOYED HIS ZIP WIRE EXPERIENCE AT ZIPWORLD NOT FAR FROM THE COTTAGE
We had a fantastic stay at Green cottage in November, its such a great base for walking - Snowdon and Tryfan are just a short drive away and there are plenty of walks you can do straight from the door if you've got an OS map. Also its just down the road from zipworld. The little village was really peaceful and parking was not an issue. The only issue we did have was the heating didnt work for the first few days- but the cottage owner Andy made every effort to get this sorted for us and after 2 days we had full heating. Looking at the guestbook nobody else had had problems with heating so i think this must have been a one off. We had a great stay thankyou!
