Description

Jentrea Cottage, built in the 1860's, is in a lovely elevated position, in the village of Llanberis. This terraced cottage has fabulous views of Snowdon from the garden and is within walking distance of the most popular footpath up Snowdon and the station for the Snowdon Mountain Railway. Caernarfon is 7.5 miles away and the Isle of Anglesey 10 miles. Llanberis is a thriving village right on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park where you will find shops and plenty of cafes, pubs and restaurants. The nearby lake, Llyn Padarn, is fantastic for swimming and watersports, with hire and teaching facilities available. There are two steam railways, one along the lake, the other up Snowdon itself; also, the interesting (and free) National Slate Museum and Electric Mountain visitor centre with underground tours. The village also has a cycle hire shop. Within a short drive is Caernarfon with its stunning castle, the beaches of Anglesey, and the National Trust's Penrhyn Castle. This couldn't be a better spot for outdoor enthusiasts with walking and cycling from the door and the ever popular ZipWorld zip wire a short drive away.

Reviews

We just stayed for a long weekend and came for an event in the lake. The property was in good order very warm and a short walk to the town centre.

Mrs Ann K,

Location

7 Days in Llanberis

Llanberis a small thriving village at the foot of Snowdon and a superb place to explore throughout the year. I live close by and here is my list of top things to do in you weeks stay in the area.

1:  a trip up Snowdon itself must be at the top of the list, at 1085m high it is highest peak in England and Wales! Go by foot up one of the many footpaths, or from around April to November, take the Snowdon Mountain Railway to the summit.

2: visit the National Slate Museum, full of fascinating history and demonstrations about the Dinorwig slate quarries, it’s free, open most of the year, and in a lovely lake side location in the Padarn Country Park

3: if the weathers not so great take an underground tour to visit the vast workings of Dinorwig Power Station. Buses will take you deep inside the mountain to see the workings of this  pumped storage system. Electric Mountain visitor centre also has exhibitions and a Tourist Information centre.

4: Llanberis has a very good selection of cafes. The famous Petes Eats is a ‘climbers café,’ always busy, serving proper homemade chips, pint mugs of tea and much more. Also visit Mafon for homemade goodies from around the world, Llygad yr Haul for fab cakes and Y Pantri for great coffee. In the evening go to Peak Restaurant for fine dining or the Gallt y Glyn for good pizzas.

5: cycle along the shores of the stunning Llyn Padarn or take a circular walk around the lake. Call at Y Caban café in Bryn Refail at the head of the lake, and don’t forget to take that ‘must have’ photo looking across the lake to Dolbadarn Castleto and Snowdon!

6: go for a wild swim in Padarn Lake or visit Snowdonia Watersports to hire a canoe or paddleboard. Lessons and courses are available here along with plenty of summer activities. The ‘lagoons’ area is really popular on a sunny day with a great fun atmosphere. You can also take a cruise or hire a paddle boat on the lake.
