Carreg Cottage is a newly renovated cottage in a fabulous location, nestled in mountains, in Capel Curig, right in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park. Footpaths will take you from the door up the popular mountain of Moel Siabod or over to the lakes of Crafnant and Geirionydd, whilst a regular bus service, with bus stop right outside the cottage, will take you the short distance to the foot of Snowdon, for paths up to the summit of the highest mountain in England and Wales. The cottage is well set up for outdoor activities with a large utility room for outdoor kit, a washing machine and a cosy wood burning stove in the sitting room. There is a popular outdoor clothing/gear shop and general store a few yards away, two lovely pubs serving food, the Bryn Tyrch and the Tyn Y Coed, and a fantastic cafe (Siabod Cafe), just down the road. On top of all that the National Outdoor Centre, Plas Y Brenin, is nearby, where you can take part in the many courses and taster days they have to offer or just visit the lively bar and ski slope.

Wow! This is such a wonderfully restored cottage, with fantastic facilities - we loved how well stocked and thought out it was - we particularly enjoyed the log fire on our cold and snowy nights. It is perfectly located for visiting and walking in the stunning area. We would certainly recommend it to others. Thanks.Mrs 'X' - 16th February 2018
