Yr Efail is one of three converted outbuildings (see Y Beudy WAG430 and Ysgubor WAG431) in a fabulous and convenient location, between the mountains of the Snowdonia National Park and the stunning Isle of Anglesey. This rural location, with fantastic views, is between the village of Port Dinorwig (Felinheli) and the university city of Bangor. The town of Caernarfon, with its majestic castle, is 6 miles away, Llanberis at the foot of Snowdon, 5 miles and ZipWorld Velocity zip wire at Bethesda also 5 miles.

"Don't miss Greenwood Forest Park just down the road, this is a perfect family day out with a scary water slide, people powered roller coaster and an indoor play area which is open all year. Its a really lovely location as well with outdoor entertainment during the school holidays, my daughter still loves it and she is a teenager!"  from Jacky, our local property manager

This property is beautiful. Ideal base for everything that North Wales has to offer. I would recommend Yr Efail to any group as it has everything you need from the youngest to the oldest in the family. Spotlessly clean, and everything you in the fridge for a cuppa and cake ,or a glass of something cold when you arrive. Thank you . Absolutely Perfect .

Mr J,

This is a lovely cottage with excellent views of Snowdonia. The cottage is located in an excellent situation conveniently placed to travel to many attractions. The cottage was very comfortable and was spotless. The owner was very friendly and helpful and the welcome pack was lovely and most appreciated. Would definitely recommend this cottage if visiting North Wales.

Ms M,

Had a great time at Er Efail. Lovely cottage with everything you could want. Peaceful and beautiful location with great access to all the sights. Best nights sleep I have had in years. Lovely treats left for us and Monty the dog loved it too!

Mrs V,

The location of yr Efail was perfect for us, with great views towards the mountains (including Snowdon) and we were made very welcome by Denise and Cledwyn when we arrived. The cottage gave us everything that we needed and is a great base to explore the surrounding area and tourist attractions from. We would definitely recommend this property. We also found the communication from Best of Wales to be second to none throughout.
