Hen Stabl Llanrug is situated up a country lane on a farm in the heart of Snowdonia, North Wales. Central to the historic town of Caernarfon (3 miles) and the village of Llanberis (4.5 miles) at the foot of Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales. Set in a truly peaceful, relaxing location, this self catering Snowdonia retreat offers a highly convenient base to explore the area and everything it has to offer.
Just 1 mile to the nearest village of Llanrug with a good village pub (Glyntwrog Inn), shops and excellent butcher. A wide range of amenities can also be found 3 miles away in the castle town of Caernarfon, including supermarkets, restaurants and cafes. Amongst the recommended places to eat locally are Black Boy Inn and Caffi'r Maes in Caernarfon, as well as Fron Goch Garden Centre on the outskirts of town. However, you will be spoilt for choice with a long list of other highly recommended restaurants such as Y Felin (2 miles), Wal in Caernarfon, Gardd Fôn in Felinheli and Dylan's in Menai Bridge (6 miles).
The area is full of visitor attractions, castles and museums, along with spectacular mountains, valleys and beaches to explore. The town of Caernarfon enjoys a superb setting, with the mountains of Snowdonia as a backdrop and wonderful views across the Menai Strait to Anglesey. Dominated by its majestic castle and ancient mediaeval walls, Caernarfon today is a busy market town with one of the highest percentages of Welsh speakers throughout Wales.
Take a tour around Inigo Jones Slate Works, travel to the highest peak in Wales on the Snowdon Mountain Railway and take advantage of the endless opportunities for walking, cycling, hiking, trekking and mountain walking in Eryri (Snowdonia). The Welsh Highland Railway, Electric Mountain in Llanberis, a round of golf on the shore of the Menai Straits and a visit to the beautiful Italianate village of Portmeirion are also guaranteed to inspire. Not forgetting the longest zip wire in Europe at Zip World in Bethesda, just 11 miles away.
For younger visitors, Hwylfan Fun Centre, North Wales' largest indoor fun centre in Caernarfon is an ideal place for kids to let off steam, and nearby Greenwood Forest Park is a nature-inspired theme park with a people-powered rollercoaster. Over the bridge in Anglesey (just 10 minutes from your self catering Snowdonia cottage) you have even more attractions including Pili Palas and Anglesey Sea Zoo.

We had an absolutely fantastic time in Wales and Hen Stabl Llanrug was the perfect cottagefor our family. There was plenty of space for the family. The facilities were fantastic and there was plenty of space for the kids. The owners also (very kindly) left Easter eggs for our children which went down as well as you can imagine!Fraser from Surrey - 8th April 2018
