The Snowdon Cottage, Capel Celyn, Bala, Gwynedd (Sleeps 1-6)

The Snowdon Cottage offers wonderful self-catering accommodation on the outskirts of Capel Celyn near Bala. The cottage is in a magnificent valley in Gwynedd and is surrounded by stunning Welsh hills and boasts views of the Llyn Ceyln reservoir. This Welsh holiday cottage is in an ideal position for exploring the mountain of Snowdon and there are 20 acres of land surrounding the cottage.

Our holiday cottage has an open plan living area with a traditional wood-burning fire for those chilly days. There is a pine dining table and chairs. There are two chesterfield leather settees. There is a TV with DVD player and a vast DVD library. We have Sky Satellite TV as there is no TV reception via aerial! We have a selection of old books for you to browse.

A fully equipped kitchen area is great for home-dining and includes a fridge freezer, electric cooker, combi grill/microwave and a Belfast sink. There is a small washer dryer and we also have a breakfast bar area with stools and views of the Welsh hills. There is even a nice view for when you wash the dishes!

Through the kitchen is a downstairs toilet and shower room. Leading from the living area are handmade oak stairs. There are 3 bedrooms upstairs. At the back, with views of the hills, is the master bedroom with king size bed.

At the front of the house are two small single bedrooms. These have views of Llyn Ceyln reservoir. All the bedrooms have solid pine furniture and altogether the holiday house has sleeping space for 6 people. The upstairs bathroom has a large slipper bath, toilet and a small Belfast sink. There is a roof window above the bath so that you can gaze at the stars while having a relaxing soak.

Outside we have a private drive down to the property, via a farm gate and off-road parking for plenty of cars. We have 20 acres of land surrounding the property that you are welcome to use for walking, games etc. There is a barn owl that sometimes comes at dusk and birds of prey that fly overhead in the daytime.

There are two ponds on the land. There is a barn owl that sometimes comes at dusk and birds of prey that fly overhead in the daytime. Just remember to bring your wellies as the land does get muddy and is undulated in places. We do keep honey bees on the land (approx 100 metres from the house) but these are kept in a fenced area with warning signs and do not tend to bother people.

The Snowdon Cottage is situated in the small Welsh hamlet of Capel Ceyln in Snowdonia National Park. The house is very centrally placed being only 23 miles from Porthmadog and 22 miles from Betws-y-Coed, making it an ideal location if you are looking for tranquillity but require easy reach to Snowdonia's famous castles and beautiful beaches.
