“Brutal Events”
Reviewed 16 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Our family group stayed here whilst two of our party took part in the Llanberis Brutal Iron man event. It took about 20 minutes to drive to Llanberis but at 6 o'clock in the morning the roads were empty. In the evening we supported the cyclists in the double event just outside in the front garden which was exciting for the kids. We also had some really good walks from the house on the Sunday. Just a short drive the other way is Bedgellert which is nice for a visit.The house was warm and comfortable with lots of space in the kitchen for everyone to congregate and eat at the huge table. Plenty of hot water and space on the settees to enjoy the Paralympics in the evening.
Also the steeped garden was interesting for an early evening drink - spectacular views. All in all we'd definitely book again

“40th bike and walking weekend”
Reviewed 15 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Amazing cottage. Very social, spacious, clean, oversized agreed party with Nia. Built a rapport with Nia without meeting. Very helpful, friendly, accomodating and informative. Highly recommended. So nice to not have tv and limited Internet. Shuts the world out whilst I celebrated my bday with party of cyclists, walkers, eaters and drinkers..... amazing place. Hope to return.

“A lovely spacious house in a perfect position”
Reviewed 9 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We booked this house for our three generation family. It was particularly suitable as our daughter's wedding was in the Llyn Gwynant barns (less than 2 miles away) in the middle of the week. The large farmhouse kitchen was a great family room. We didn't use the lounge much as the weather was so lovely - the terraced garden was well used. The views are stunning. Different groups went up the mountains, canoed on the lake (where it's possible to get a pizza supper), river strolling - and icecream eating - in Beddgelert, and down to the coast at Criccieth.
If we could have paid a bit extra to have an extra cleaner on departure day we would have. It's quite stressful getting packed up and cleaning a big house by 10am when there are children - but we did manage!

“A beautiful cottage in a perfect setting”
Reviewed 3 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This is a beautiful cottage in a perfect setting for anyone who likes the great outdoors. We had a group of five friends so a room each. The property is very comfy and cosy, and perfect to chill out and relax after a climb up to the summit of Snowdon. The views from the front are stunning. The village of Beddgelert is a beautiful place to go for a coffee or ice cream, and everyone we spoke to was very friendly and helpful.

“After a fun packed day in Snowdonia, this was a welcoming house to come home too.”
Reviewed 11 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

There was plenty of room for all eight of us and the doggies, a nice big table in the kitchen to cater for us all. After our very active days it was lovely to come home light fire and chill out. The house was very warm and cosy, plenty of layers on the beds.
There was some great doggy walks within easy reach from house, of course the Watkins path as well. Thank you for a stay which made our holiday extra special, the Chaffe s and the Christopher's.
