The property is an excellent location for visitors wanting the walks of Snowdon on the doorstep including Llanberis Path the easiest and longest route The Miners’ Track Snowdon Ranger Path and the Watkin Path. The holiday property has been carefully restored retaining many original features boasting a cosy and atmospheric wood-burning stove whilst a medieval highgate bed captures the Victorian period. The elevated gardens to the rear steps may be slippery when wet overlooks the mountains and local countryside. \nCapel Curig nestles in the foothills of Moel Siabod Y Glyderau and Y Carneddau endorsing the majestic view of the Snowdon horseshoe. Afon Llygwy flows through the village making its way down to Betws-y-Coed a nearby village where forests lakes and mountains combine to produce a stunning landscape. Coffee shops craft houses a miniature steam railway and a number of good eating houses are located in the centre of Betws-y-Coed village.\nDay trips to consider would be Bodnant Gardens set in one of North Wales’ most famous estates or Conway with its castle walls marina selection of shops and delicatessens not forgetting the smallest house in the UK according to the Guinness Book of Records. Llangollen in the opposite direction is a pleasant Welsh town with its horse-drawn canal boats light railway Dr Who experience and world famous festivals such as the annual Eisteddfod. Beddgelert is a short drive and is good for walkers or children wishing to visit Gelert’s Grave. Most areas of the Lleyn Peninsula are within an hour’s drive where good beaches and watersports can be found. Portmeirion village is also great for a day trip with its exotic plants and Italianate buildings. Fishing and golf are available within 5 miles. Shop 1 mile pub ¼ mile. \n " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/497/840/497899.jpg ORO

    out of 10

    Spacious yet cosy, very warm and welcoming. We were a group of 7 friends and it never felt crowded. Mirrors in ALL the bedrooms would be useful, other than that, well equipped, perfect for cosy evenings in, yet close enough to amenities if you want them. Generous and thoughtful welcome pack. It’s situated on a very busy main road, on a car park with a cafe directly next door, so probably not suited to those seeking privacy and peace and quiet. Overall good value for money, would highly recommend

    Been here twice now owner's communicate well before key pickup, lovely cosey home that has everything you need, very private and friendly atmosphere, will try to come every year as its the onky place my whole family will get together in one house, and the lovely cat that greets us every morning at the door loves a cuddles too, would definitely recommend

    Excellent cottage, warm, cosy, great TV and Wi-Fi. Lovely pub 10 minutes walk away. Useful utility room for boots, wet coats and bikes. No downstairs loo but 3 upstairs!

    We had a wonderful few days at Cartref. The house is lovely, warm and welcoming. Well equipped and spacious. The hosts also left some lovely supplies, which was a great touch. We found it an ideal location especially for Zip World and we definitely will be staying there again. Thank you.

    A very enjoyable holiday - the weather was kind to us as we had five out of six dry daytimes. Pretty good for North Wales! This meant that we were away from the property for much of the time and so less dependent on the facilities in Cartref. A comfortable, well equipped house with plenty of character.



    out of 10

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cartref- it’s such a beautiful house, very well equipped and comfortable. The house is spacious and big enough for 8 people. Everything was straightforward and easy. Highly recommended. We’ll definitely stay here again.

    We had a great week staying in Cartref, location is perfect with lots of walking and biking from your doorstep. The house was beautiful too with everything we needed and very comfortable and cozy.
