The property

Frondeg is a versatile and spacious bungalow that will suit every generation looking to have a fun-filled or relaxing holiday in North Wales.

Welcoming and comfortable with a lovely well tended garden to the front and rear, there is even a paddock for the children to be able to play football or cricket!

"In a quiet village setting with lovely rural views across farmland to the Isle of Anglesey beyond." Walkers will enjoy the many paths that lead to neighbouring villages, up the hills and into the mountains.

It's also a great base for running fans as the Snowdonia Marathon takes place close by, as does the Snowdon Race (or Ras yR Wyddfa).

For those wanting a more sedate break, the lovely garden and terrace are perfect for a relaxing sundowner after a happy day exploring, or a contented day relaxing with a cuppa and the views!

If you want to explore North Wales, Frondeg is a great holiday cottage to base yourselves.

Being a short drive from the popular University town of Bangor, it is the ideal base for visiting the many attractions of North Wales, including the famous Zip Wire in Bethesda.

The Snowdonia National Park, Anglesey and the Llyn Peninsula are all on your doorstep.

Llanberis and Caernarfon, with their many and varied attractions, great walks and cycle routes, as well as fab places to eat and drink are within a 15-minute drive or less!

About the location


Bangor 5 miles; Caernarfon 7 miles.

Rhiwlas is a traditional Welsh village set on the foothills of the Snowdonia Mountain range with its own primary school and within easy access from the A55 Expressway, 4 miles from the city of Bangor with its University and with the famous town of Llanberis just 6 miles away. Llanberis offers excellent places to eat and drink, fabulous shopping, and is dominated by the grandeur of the Snowdon Massif. It is renowned as something of a 'mecca' for walkers and climbers, being the starting point for the ascent of Snowdon, the highest mountain in England and Wales. The ascent can be made either by the Snowdonia Mountain Railway, or on foot along one of the many routes to the summit. Just 7 miles from Llanberis, on the coast, is Caernarfon with its magnificent Castle and town walls and close by are National Trust properties at Penrhyn and Plas Newydd. With Anglesey and the entire North Wales coastline within easy reach, Rhiwlas is an excellent holiday location.
