“Snowdon challenge weekend - warm and cosy cottage”
Reviewed 13 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014
person found this review helpful

We stayed at Is-Y-Graig for a wonderful long weekend just before Easter. We planned to walk the South Ridge of Snowdon and being in Beddgelert the cottage was really close to the start.

The cottage is stone-built with a cosy living room and large farmhouse-style kitchen with three good sized bedrooms, 1 twin and 2 doubles. The cottage was rather chilly when we arrived but the central heating system is very efficient and once the cottage was warm it was great - really welcoming. The owner, Alix, provides full instructions on using the facilities and we were able to change the heating settings easily. There is also a fire-buring stove in the living room which I am sure is fantastic but we didn't have time to use it.

The cottage has everything you would need - cooker, fridge,microwave, washing machine and dryer, dishwasher etc. and all easy to use and well explained and there are plenty of pans, crockery and glasses etc. There is hanging space in the Utility Room for coats and outdoor gear. The beds, which feel a little hard when you first get into them, are actually really comfortable and the shower and bathroom facilities are perfect.

The only difficulty we had was with our booking through Trip Advisor which can be a bit of an inflexible site but Alix was really helpful and we sorted it all out via email and a call to Trip Advisor.

There were 5 adults in our party and we all had a great time but the cottage would equally well suit a family.

Beddgelert was very quiet at the time we visited but we had good food and drinks at The Royal Goat, althought they only serve food early so beware. Our favourite place was the Cwellyn Arms at Rhyd Ddu, which is a short drive away but has wonderful beer, fabulous food and a great welcome.

The cottage is very well placed for travelling within Snowdonia and beyond. We also explored old haunts on the Llyn Pennisula - watching the sea rolling in at Morfa Neffyn and visiting Porthmadog and Criccieth on the way. We planned to visit Portmerion but sadly a flat tyre changed our plans!
