Glyn Awel enjoys a magnificent setting opposite Y Lliwedd on the Snowdon Horseshoe
Large dining kitchen accommodates 10 in comfort
It looks like an Aga, but actually it's just like a normal ceramic hob with 2 ovens
Inglenook with log burner in case of a chilly evening
Convenient utility keeps modern appliances out of the traditional kitchen
Large comfortable lounge with TV, media centre and a selection of DVDs
Feature fireplace with log burner
Also a study for quiter relaxation
There's two large double bedrooms and three twins all finished in country style
There's a large terraced garden on several levels
with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains
Autumn is as good a time to visit as summer is
That's the flank of Snowdon at the back, Y Lliwedd in front, Watkin path in the valley between

“Excellent base and lovely cottage”
Reviewed 12 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We were working on Snowdon and used this cottage as a base for two weeks We spent most of our time in the kitchen which is large and comfortable. There is an open fire there and a friendly huge table. A really lovely room to eat drink and work in.

The cottage is beautifully positioned with a great view of the big hill.

We were working while we were there but I would happily go back with my family.

“amazing”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We recently rented this house for an extended family holiday and were very impressed by the whole house. There was lots of space for everyone to do what they wanted to do; as well as being able to find peace and quiet.
We found the location perfect for getting out and about to the places we planned on visiting such as the beach, Snowdon and castles.
The house was extremely clean and tidy and was very well kitted out. Would recommend this holiday to anyone wanting to go away with a large group of friends or family.

“perfect accomodation for a quiet wales vacation”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed here with 8 other friends for a weekend break including a Snowdon climb. The cottage was a fifteen minutes drive to the mountain.so location was good. It was very quiet and peaceful as there arnt many neighbous The cottage was very spacious inside and out there was plenty of room for us all. The driveway was ideal a it had space for all four cars. There were 4 bedrooms in total, 3 rooms slept two and one slept four. I was in the room for four and privacy was not an issue as the room was large and there was a wall separating each couple... there was plenty of space in the wardrobes etc. There were two bathrooms in this property which we did not have a problem with. The cottage is self catering and provide more than ample cooking facilities...plenty of pots/pans/cups/glasses/cutlery/a toaster kettle large fridge, barbeque, aga style cooker microwave and two sinks to wash up in.

Before you arrive at the cottage I would recommend that you buy shopping beforehand...or order a Tesco delivery as the nearest supermarket is half hours drive. There is a small grocery shop in nearby begglegert but choice is limited. I would also strongly recommend the use of your own vehicle in this vicinity as it is quite a walk to begglegert and we experienced difficulty in getting a taxi or a bus.

All in all this cottage is great for a quiet getaway, nicely presented and nicely located.
