Renowned for the dramatic mountain scenery of Snowdonia with its lakes and rock-strewn mountain passes, North Wales also offers a surprisingly varied countryside, from the beautiful Conwy Valley to the tranquillity of the Isle of Anglesey. The coastline is equally diverse, with sandy beaches, rocky coves and spectacular cliffs - and standing proudly over the land and seascape are some of the country's mightiest castles such as Penrhyn. The National Trust owns some 60,000 acres of coast and countryside in North Wales, including some of the majestic mountains of Snowdonia, unspoilt coastline on the Llyn, and an array of historic houses and castles.

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.

    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.

    Lovely quiet location

    A lovely quiet location with wonderful views of Snowdon and close to lovely Betswy-y-Coed. We booked the two neighbouring cottages so that we could share a long weekend with other members of our family. Both cottages( numbers 2 &3) are cosy, comfortable and well-equipped.. Each cottage is most suitable for a single couple or a couple with 1 or 2 children.

    The sunsets were special

    Staying where Sir Edmund Hilary stayed and the ability to walk around the farms directly neighbouring the cottage; the sunsets such that you get max light and warmth in the front garden (we took out the chairs and coffee table for cheese and wine every evening) all made this cottage and location special to us.

    Fantastic view of the main mountains of Snowdonia National Park

    Excellent place to stay. Fantastic location. The cottage was lovely and warm especially since it was so cold outside. Considering how close it was to the main A5 the place was so quiet. We could not hear a thing apart from bird song. We went as part of our 10th wedding anniversary and would consider going back with our children. The peace and quiet and the fantastic view of the main mountains of Snowdonia National Park. The sunsets over the mountains were incredible.

    Fabulous 2 night break

    Just had a fabulous 2 night break in 2 Siloam Cottage. A real mid winter tonic, wonderful views and very relaxing. Managed to climb Snowdon despite the wind and hail!! The cottage had all amenities and was very warm and the coal fire made it very cosy at night. We will definitely be renting National Trust cottages again.
