    “Property in lovely location, with walks from the doorstep.”

    Snowdon and many paths a short ride away. Cottage has plenty of room with three double size bedrooms and heated up well once heating was on. Kitchen had all utensils/equipment needed. Cottage was cold when we arrived and had a little damp smell - it had been raining non stop! A maintenance issue - CO alarm low battery -was quickly sorted by managing agents. A couple of minor niggles - microwave was broken and needs fixing - but overall didn't detract from the stay we had. My only further comment ...

    Snowdon and many paths a short ride away. Cottage has plenty of room with three double size bedrooms and heated up well once heating was on. Kitchen had all utensils/equipment needed. Cottage was cold when we arrived and had a little damp smell - it had been raining non stop! A maintenance issue - CO alarm low battery -was quickly sorted by managing agents. A couple of minor niggles - microwave was broken and needs fixing - but overall didn't detract from the stay we had. My only further comment is traffic is generally light whilst we stayed here but it was also fast and the cottage is just after a corner so take care exiting the cottage onto the road.

The property

Beddgelert 3.5 miles.

This lovely cottage, Llys Elen, is located in Nant Gwynant, Gwynedd.

Llys Elen is an ideal base for a group of four or a family of six, as it is situated in a prime location near Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park and offers views of the famed peak from its traditional interior and garden.

Step into the living/kitchen space, where you can whip up delicious meals in the well-appointed kitchen or unwind in the sitting area to a cracking fire as the woodburning stove adds a gentle warmth to the space.

Dine at the six-seat dining table or al fresco on the rear patio or elevated terrace, with breath-taking mountain views as a backdrop.

There is also a sitting area with inviting sofas and a wood-burning stove, ideal for curling up with a book.

Climb the stairs to the first floor, where you can indulge in soak in the bath or freshen up under the overhead shower, before retiring to one of the three well-appointed double bedrooms, one of which features an en suite shower room.

Adjacent to your new holiday home is the well-known Watkins Path, which offers a scenic route up to the Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) Summit.

Take a trip to the historic village of Beddgelert where you can visit Gelerts grave the faithful hound of the medieval Welsh Prince Llewelyn the Great, or pop in to Glaslyn ice cream parlour for a tasty local treat!

You can enjoy a range of watersports on Llyn Peris, tour the World Heritage site of Dinorwig Quarry, and delve into history at the National Slate Museum and Dolbadarn Castle at Llanberis.

If you come for the sights and not the trek, you can ride a train from Llanberis to the summit of the renowned Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) Peak.

Continue to Blaenau Ffestiniog, where you can explore Zip World Llechwedd's underground mines, or travel to Betws-y-Coed for treetop thrills at Zip World Forest and walks to Swallow Falls Waterfall.

Your North Wales adventure begins at Llys Elen.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
