Striking period cottage with contemporary twists on the edge of Bethesda with Zip World, shops and eateries all nearby. From your doorstep, enjoy activities and attractions in Snowdonia National Park.

Enjoy a cosy stay at this gorgeous stone retreat near Bethesda in North Wales. Sleeping three guests, the two-bedroom cottage, which offers dog-friendly accommodation, is just 1.5 miles from the edge of the impressive Eryri National Park, also known as Snowdonia, and 6.5 miles from the Isle of Anglesey. It is well placed for country and coastal walks, as well as days out on the beach.

Enter to find exquisite, cottage-style accommodation with features such as white-washed stonework and timber beams. The heart of the holiday home is the beautiful lounge, where you can fire up the wood burner on chilly days to create a warm and relaxing ambience. Watch the Smart TV in here, choose a book from the shelves or discuss which North Wales adventure to have the following day. Amble through to the kitchen/diner to prepare delicious meals or to open a bottle of wine to enjoy in front of the fire. When day turns to night, head through to one of your sumptuous bedrooms. These include a king-size and a single, making this an excellent option for a small family. There is also a family shower room, where you can freshen up before starting your day. Spend sunny afternoons and evenings out in the courtyard garden. Carefully follow the stone steps up to the lawn and supervise children and pets as they play.

Stroll just 1.5 miles to Penrhyn Slate Quarry, the location for Zip World, home to the fastest zip line in the world and the longest in Europe. Venture 10 miles to see picturesque Aber Falls in the Eryri National Park. This is widely described as one of the most dramatic waterfalls in Wales and can be accessed as part of a scenic walk.

Bryn Hideaway is clean, well equipped, tastefully decorated and ideally located for accessing the great Welsh outdoors. If booking during winter months, be prepared to rely on lighting the large wood burning stove to provide sufficient heat for a cozy temperature indoors during your stay.

Lovely little cottage in a great area for exploring, all in-house amenities provided for a comfortable stay. Can't fault the place really, Tesco express only 5 mins in the car and the retail park in Bangor is only 15/20 mins away which has everything you need in one place.
