“Wonderful base to explore from...”
Reviewed June 19, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My partner and I were very impressed with this little gem. The weather on our way up was horrendous so we were very pleased to be met by the warm and friendly smile of our host, Basil who gave us a quick tour of our accommodation which put us at our ease.

The cottage gave us everything we could need as a base for our 4 night break.....a clean & well equipped kitchen, lovely big bathroom with towels provided, with the added bonus of a w/c upstairs. Cosy lounge with wood-burner & comfy beds along with great seating area outside with views across the fields and hills in the distance. Local supermarket and pub within walking distance. Great for exploring the surrounding countryside and beyond, you can find something to do in all weathers (handy leaflets and maps provided in the cottage, thank you Basil). It was only a couple of miles to Llanberis with all its attractions and the wonderful views of Snowdon & short drive to Bangor and across to Anglesey.

All in all a great break away for us and are looking forward to returning again next year to explore the area further.

“Spotless, comfortable and warm.”
Reviewed May 19, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Lovely location, with easy access to Llanberis for .Slateman Triathlon. Pub is walking distance ( Glyntwrog) with lovely food. Cottage had everything we needed especially the bath for a post Tri soak !! Plenty of room and warm and comfortable. Would recommend to friends and possibly return for next years race.

“Lovely cottage and well run.”
Reviewed May 3, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We found this to be a cosy, well equipped and immaculately clean cottage. We called Basil 30 mins before arrival and were met as we arrived and given a short introduction.

Basil is very helpful and just a stone's throw away, although unobtrusive.

The gardens are pleasant. There's a large car park, decking area with table and chairs. The log burner is very good and the central heating keeps the place warm on cold nights. Lovely big bathroom.

On a nice day the view of Snowden is terrific. It's possible to watch the trains chugging up the slopes!

Access to attractions is very good. Overall we were very pleased.

“Very well presented cottage”
Reviewed March 21, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Basil was a terrific host and gave us lots of useful local tips. The cottage was delightful and was more than enough space for the two of us plus road bikes. The kitchen is more than you would expect for the price, with everything you need. Very good base for walking up snowdon or exploring the local attractions. We would defiantly stay again. Booked with airbnb.

“Lovely cottage and host”
Reviewed December 8, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Basil made us feel right at home at ship's cottage. He also gave us good info and directions on things to do during our stay. The cottage is very cosy and well equipped, we had everything we needed. It is well located near a small town with a very good pub (great food and local atmosphere), bus stop, also easy to reach by car. Great place if you're looking to do some hiking in Snowdonia. Will definitely try to book here again next time.
