Located on a farm in the heart of the National Park, this is self catering in Snowdonia at its very best. Your detached cottage enjoys a peaceful setting on the outskirts of Pant Glas, a small hamlet that's central to the major attractions of North Wales, including Porthmadog (9 miles), Caernarfon (10 miles), Pwllheli (11.5 miles) as well as Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales. Surrounded by majestic landscapes, Pant Glas is also famous for producing one of Wales' and the world's leading opera singers, Bryn Terfel. 

The nearest pub / restaurant (Goat Inn - with excellent Sunday lunch) is just 2 miles away in the village of Bryncir and a curry house is also within 2 miles. Some of the highly recommended restaurants nearby include Dylan's in Cricieth (7 miles), Yr Hen Fecws in Porthmadog and Blas in Caernarfon. The nearest grocery shop is in Penygroes (4 miles), also home to Pant Du Vineyard where you can do some wine tasting.

With wondrous walks and cycle routes from the doorstep, Cricieth Castle, Caernarfon Castle, golden beaches and narrow gauge railways all within 10 miles, this really is an excellent base for your holiday in North Wales. Another major attraction in the area is the Zip Wire and again, your cottage is central to the Bethesda and Blaenau Ffestiniog venues (both 21.5 miles). Bethesda offers the longest and fastest zip ride in Europe whilst Blaenau Ffestiniog also offers Bounce Below, the only subterranean playground of its kind and the Slate Caverns.

One of the nearest attractions to the cottage is Bryncir Woollen Mill (2 miles), whilst Glasfryn Parc (7 miles) with its go karts, quadbikes, ten-pin bowling etc is another ideal all weather venue. Enjoy family adventure at Greenwood Forest Park (16 miles) and the Electric Mountain in Llanberis (19 miles), where you can also catch a train to the peak of Snowdon. For beautiful beaches, hidden coves and idyllic seaside villages, visit the Llyn Peninsula and the Holy Island of Ynys Enlli (Bardsey Island). The classic Italian village of Portmeirion (12 miles) is another 'must visit' whilst Porthmadog is the base for stunning narrow gauge railway journeys through the National Park to either Blaenau Ffestiniog, or Caernarfon.


Cricieth has two popular beaches, either side of the Castle. These are a mixture of sand and pebble with a rocky area at the far end of the eastern beach exposing rock pools at low tide. 7 miles

Morfa Bychan's Black Rock Sands is one of the most beautiful in Britain and you can take your car on to the beach for a small fee. 11 miles

There are also many more beautiful beaches on the Llyn Peninsula and the Caernarfon area (eg. Aberdesach and Dinas Dinlle).

Lon Goed - a beautiful 6 mile avenue of hardwood trees and a paradise for walkers. 5 miles from the cottage

Llyn Coastal Path (part of the All Wales Coast Path) – Many sections within a short distance, with the nearest joining point being Cricieth. 7 miles.

Plenty of mountain walks to choose from in Snowdonia. Snowdon, the highest, is a must and the nearest route starts from Rhyd-ddu (11 miles), or you can catch the train from Llanberis (19 miles) to the summit café.


Eisteddfa Fisheries - Choice of beautiful lakes to suit all preferences with tackle, advice and refreshments provided. 7 miles

Or what about a fishing trip around St Tudwal’s Islands, two tiny islands just off Abersoch (19 miles). Alternatively, you can sit back and watch the dolphins, seals and other wildlife in their natural habitat.
