Description

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 are 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 admire the views.

Location

Capel Curig is a charming village set on the river Llugwy in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, at the junction of three beautiful valleys, making it the perfect base from which to head into the mountains. Even though Capel Curig is small it has an outdoor gear shop,a nd café, so whether you are walking, mountaineering, climbing or mountain biking you can make sure you have the correct kit! Capel Curig is a hub for outdoor activities and is surrounded by the dramatic mountainous terrain of Snowdonia. The village is served by the Sherpa bus network which gives great access to Snowdon itself and nearby villages such as Betws-y-Coed, Llanberis and Bethesda. Plas-y- Brenin, the National Sports Centre is located here, where you can join the many outdoor courses run throughout the year, visit the lively bar, which often has live music, or ski on the artificial ski slope.

A short stroll away down the road towards Betws-y-Coed is a good pub, the Bryn Tyrch, serving food, and a popular café, Siabod Café, serving homemade goodies and, my favourite, enormous scones! A mile or so further again is another popular pub the Tyn y Coed. About 6 miles away is the pretty village of Betws-y-Coed, known as the ‘Gateway to Snowdonia’ and another hub of outdoor activities, including beautiful walking along the river by cascading waterfalls and the Tree Top Adventure High Ropes Course. Mountain biking is also popular here with Gwydir Mawr and Bach trails running through the forests, and bike hire locally. Betws-y-Coed also has a good selection of shops, cafes, pubs and places to eat, it is home to the Snowdonia National Park Visitor Centre and has a miniature railway and riverside golf course.

Capel Curig is near the footpaths up Snowdon, 9 miles from Zip World Velocity zip wire at Bethesda, and 11 miles from Llanberis, with the train up Snowdon or along Padarn lake, and the National Slate Museum.

Carreg Cottage is in the centre of Capel Curig and is well equipped for outdoor enthusiasts, families and pets, with a large utility room for outdoor kit with a sink and washing machine, plus a cosy woodburning stove in the lounge.
