“Excellent value cottage for a holiday base in the heart of Snowdonia.”
Reviewed 24 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

A lovely cottage, with everything you need for a holiday base, within reach of most of the best tourist attractions of North Wales. The owner was easily contacted and answered every question promptly. The property was exactly as described and nicely secluded away from the road, with almost zero traffic noise meaning the outside area of the property can be utilised for meal times, which we did frequently. The outside picture on the website is out of date and doesn't do it justice, so I've added a new one.

The only downside to the property is that it doesn't have it's own allocated parking space, however the nature of Talysarn village is that all of the properties have on road parking and it was never an issue finding a parking space.

The village of Talysarn itself is representative of many villages in North Wales in the current economic climate and has seen better times, meaning there are no local amenities, not even a local pub at the time. There are shops and 'take aways' close by in Penygroes, but for family eating out or a large supermarket you'll need to travel to Caernarfon, which is only 15 minutes away.

A special mention for the neighbours, very friendly, always ready for a chat and very helpful. For example one day it rained and the neighbours took in our drying washing and then re-pegged it out when it had stopped raining. Superb!

A gem of a property for a holiday with excellent rates for school holiday times.

We stayed in this lovely cottage for weekend (only unfortunately) Place it self is located about max 20 min drive from snowdon mountain so it's pretty close with great views of mountains. Only one thing was for cons. Parking spaces, or lack of them.
I would recommend this cottage to everyone!!!

we stayed in the cottage for 2 nights and it was amazing, 2 nights just weren't enough. The cottage itself is located in a stunning location and is very quiet. Very clean and fully equipped, fantastic woodburner stove.
Our 4 year old loved it and didn't want to leave!
Helpful neighbor who couldn't do enough to help. Would most def recommend.

We loved having the use of this house for a holiday with our adult children and 2 year old grandson. The house is spacious and well equipped. It was a welcome and comfortable place to return to after our busy days out in this amazing area.

So much to see and do but not enough time. Next time my stay will longer as the house is perfectly situated. Only thing is that parking is on the street and the street is narrow and there is full so you might have to park a little far away.
