Things to see and do nearby

South Wales is a land of sweeping green valleys, rugged mountains, woodland and forests and miles of coastal paths laced with heather.

The special places we look after in Pembrokeshire include the rugged landscape and views over to Ireland from St David's Peninsula, to the nature reserve at Stackpole where otters and dragonflies nestle amongst the water reeds. Then take in the views over the Bristol Channel to Lundy and Exmoor from sun-drenched Rhossili, the highest point on the Gower peninsula.

In North Wales, the dramatic mountain scenery of Snowdonia, with its rivers, waterfalls and the Nant Gwynant valley nestled amongst the mountains and hills, draws people back again and again, while the colourful beach huts at Llanbedrog beach and grey seal-spotting at Porthor Beach are just a few of the highlights of the very special Llyn Peninsula.

Some of the most varied landscapes of North Wales lie within Snowdonia. The peaks of Snowdon rise to over 3,000 feet above sea level and provide some of the most magnificent scenery in the region while the dramatic slopes of the Arans are less frequented and offer stunning views and tranquillity. This is a great base from which to explore beautiful Betws-y-Coed with its interesting shops; the market town of Dolgellau; spectacular Cader Idris and the majestic Mawddach estuary. Several of the cottages are situated on the Ysbyty estate which is the Trust?s largest farmed estate consisting of 51 farms, 20,000 acres and over 500 acres of woodlands. National Trust places in and around Snowdonia include Craflwyn estate, Penhryn Castle, the shop and pub at Beddgelert, Ysbyty estate, Ty Mawr Wybrant, Aberconwy House, Conwy Suspension Bridge and Bodnant Gardens. Other attractions and places of interest include Llanwrst, Cerrigydrudion, Ruthin, Bala Lake, Llandudno, Conwy, Nant Gwynant Valley, Porthmadog, Criccieth, Portmeirion, Betws-y-Coed, Llanberis, Harlech, Welsh Mountain Railway and the Welsh Slate Museum at Llanberis. Activities in the area include walking, birdwatching, fishing, canoeing, mountain biking and rock climbing.

    Lovely views

    We particularly enjoyed the location of the cottage. The views were lovely and it was very refreshing to see so many wild flowers in the hedgerows.

    Excellent location

    The location of the cottage was excellent, with a wealth of activities in the area, and near vicinity. Great places to visit, amazing walks, and quaint villages to stop for a cuppa.

    Will be booking again!

    So well presented, the cottage is actually the middle one in the photo and adding to the facilities there was a cooker and kettle and fridge freezer. Really felt at home there, the neighbours that permanently live next door are very nice. There was a lovely little tray of tea and coffee with sugar and biscuits for when we arrived and had to hunt but found the matches on the shelf above the fire place. Lovely experience and will be booking though you again. Very, very happy customer! The views were fantastic! It felt very personal and it was close to one of my favourite places! So lovely to hear the wildlife at night too.
