Llanberis holiday cottages and accommodation
Lying on the southern banks of Llyn Padarn, Llanberis takes its name from Saint Peris, an early Welsh saint. It is a base for ascents of Yr Wyddfa/Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales and England. We have a lovely range of Llanberis holiday cottages that make a great base for a holiday in Snowdonia. Set on the north-west tip of Eryri/Snowdonia National Park, this popular village is an ideal holiday spot for couples embarking on a quiet getaway, families enjoying a well-earned break, or groups of friends taking part in a plethora of outdoor pursuits. The choice of welcoming cottages near Llanberis offering fresh, relaxing and spacious holiday accommodation includes cosy traditional bungalows, picturesque stone-built cottages and impressive rural houses. Our choice of Llanberis accommodation is perfect for keen walkers, climbers, cyclists and nature lovers exploring the stunning lakes, towering mountains, vast woodlands and historic towns and cities of this spellbinding region.
Our attractive Wales cottages to rent near Llanberis are within easy reach of Llanberis Path, a popular walking route to the summit of Yr Wyddfa/Snowdon, largely following the line of the Snowdon Mountain Railway that takes visitors to Hafod Eryri, the visitor centre on the summit. Other local attractions include The National Slate Museum designed as though quarrymen and engineers have just put down their tools and left the courtyard for home, while an array of talks and demonstrations including slate-splitting give a real insight into quarry life. Padarn Country Park includes Padarn Lake and the surrounding woodland. Canoeing and sailing facilities are available on the lake and there are country trails and walks through the nature reserve and forest. Electric Mountain is the First Hydro Company's Visitor Centre; its split-level layout contains a gift shop and cafe and is the starting point for the tour of Dinorwig Power Station. From the centre, a bus will transport visitors to the Power Station itself, descending deep inside the mountain's labyrinth of dark and imposing tunnels, where visitors will experience one of man's greatest engineering achievements.
Exploring the area further, you can head to the coast to spend a day in the historic royal town of Caernarfon, home of the impressive medieval castle. Anglesey is just over the Menai Strait, and there are plenty more opportunities for water sports, climbing and mountain biking, alongside friendly pubs and restaurants for you to unwind in during your holiday in North Wales.
