About the neighbourhood
Snowdonia in beautiful North Wales has so much to offer. Countless walks, hikes and bike routes from the cottage or a short distance away. Zip World is just down the road, Snowdon is an 20 minute drive, Betws y Coed is approx 20 min, Caernarfon Castle again is about 20 minutes away. These are just some of the many attractions on offer in the area. The nearest beach is a 5-10 minute drive. Many lovely restaurants and cafes, including Dylans in Menai Bridge, Fitzpatricks in Bethesda and the Ugly House on the way to Betws y Coed.
