Description

In a truly breathtaking setting high above Llanberis, this delightful detached barn conversion is bursting with charm, character and a quirky layout to offer spacious family accommodation. The views are simply stunning looking down on Llyn Pardarn and its water borne activities, with Snowdon as a back drop and a bird’s eye view on a clear day of the little train chugging its way to the summit!

This is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts and walkers with many footpaths criss-crossing the area and of course one of the most well-known routes to the summit of Snowdon starting from Llanberis itself, which is also home to both lakeside and mountain railways as well as a slate museum. There are many exciting visitor attractions close by including Electric Mountain visitor centre, Zip World, Rib Rides boat trips on the Menai Straits and the UK’s only inland surfing lagoon. Other family based attractions include Anglesey Sea Zoo, Greenwood Forest Park and Gypsy Wood Park offering a perfect base for exploring this corner of Snowdonia.

The university town of Bangor, with the National Trust Penrhyn and Caernarfon Castles and the Isle of Anglesey with its 125 miles of coastline, are all easily accessible. Beach 13 miles. Shop 1¾ miles, pub 4 miles, café 200 yards.
