Cottage in Llanllechid, Nr. Bangor, Snowdonia National Park, Gwynedd, Wales - 5 Minutes Walk To The Village Shop And Pub
About Andy Want
In the 20 yrs since purchasing our first overseas rental property we've worked hard to perfect every aspect of the villa rental experience and in 2017 we expanded our range of villas to 1 three bedroom villa, 1 two bedroom villa and 1 one bedroom villa in some of the most desirable locations. At regular intervals we inspect and ensure that standards of maintenance are kept at their very best. In 2012 we 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
Why Andy Want chose Bangor
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.

A peaceful gem
We have just had 4 nights at this lovely cottage in a very quiet spot.
Only nice things to say about it really
Fantastic Mountain view while sitting in the garden too
Great short break
Spent 4 days in Andy's cottage. Good location on the edge of Snowdonia. 25 mins from Snowdon and 10 from Zip World which were the primary places we wanted to visit. We had a great few days. Thanks Andy
Good location to explore North Wales
We had a nice time and the cottage was clean, well equiped and with good beds. Wuiet location, good place to explore North Wales by car.
peaceful little cottage
lovely little cottage in a quiet village. lovey sized rooms downstairs but the double upstairs is compact. twin room very spacious with lots of storage.
bathroom is very well proportioned.
the kitchen/diner had all you needed including a washing machine and dishwasher.
nice walks close by and easy access to snowdonia and anglesey.
the garden is fenced however smaller dogs like ours need close supervision as there is a gap between the beautiful stone wall and the fence.
the only real downsides for us we’re the entrance hall smells strongly of heating oil so not somewhere you could leave your wet coats.
the beds are not overly comfortable, springs were noticeable (could do with a memory foam topper or new mattresses)
the property has no parking but on street parking on a very wide road is less than 1 minute walk away.
really enjoyed our stay
Thank you for your review really appreciated. Best regards Andy.
Comfortable cottage and a good location to stay
Nice cottage which was an excellent base for exploring Snowdonia, with plenty of things to do within a short drive away. Easy to deal with the owner and would recommend to others.
Cottage is ok, has what you need. Lovely and warm with the fire and heating. Close to local walks etc. Great for the dog!
Peaceful cottage is a very apt description thank you for your review. Best regards, Andy.
