North Wales Self Catering Holiday

Enjoy easy access to mountains, castles, endless attractions and sandy beaches. Central to Porthmadog, Caernarfon, Snowdonia and the Llyn Peninsula, this cottage provides a great location for your North Wales self catering holiday. It also offers cosy, pet-friendly accommodation with all its original features, including a huge inglenook fireplace. Believed to be the oldest house in the county of Gwynedd, this sub-medieval hall house dates from circa 1543 and was built on the probable site of a Roman Bath-house.

The kitchen includes a dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker and plenty of kitchen units. Oak dining table for 4 guests, post and panel oak partition and an oak beamed ceiling.

A stone spiral staircase with oak steps lead upstairs from the lounge, complete with slit window reminiscent of an arrow hole.


Master Bedroom has an antique French king sized bed, exposed beams and panelled walls.

Second Bedroom has mahogany twin beds, large antique wardrobe and chest of drawers.

Bathroom contains a Victorian bath with Cath Kidston wallpaper.


An enclosed, enchanting garden with a small stream meandering through it, mature trees and a unique wildlife pond.

    Very peaceful. Good base for whatever you want to do. Pleasant garden. Property with plenty of character.
    Tip: Explore the wonderful coastline.
    Family from Derbyshire, May 2017

    A beautiful, amazing, property. We loved the interior design, inglenook fireplace, it was absolutely fabulous!
    Our original plan had been to explore Snowdonia, but actually we loved the immediate local area, coast and peninsula. Did some walks where we had the whole valley to ourselves.
    The cottage owners were very welcoming, warm and friendly. Cake and wine on arrival left out.
    I found Best of Wales very considerate, responsive and helpful.
    Recommendations: The Peninsula, driving the car on Black Rock Sands Beach, and Caernarfon Castle and town.
    Lucy from London, May 2017

    A very pleasant country cottage full of surprises with an absolute wonderful garden. Some lovely castles and a superb small village called Beddgelert worth visiting close by. The cottage owners couldn't have been more welcoming.
    Julian from Stoke on Trent, Oct 2016
