We say

Owned by the same people who run the lovely Gwern Gof Isaf farm campsite in the heart of Snowdonia, this is a fabulous holiday cottage for walkers and outdoor types, nestled in the Ogwen valley and giving easy access to the majestic mountains of Capel Curig and Tryfan that surround – slopes that were famously the training-ground of member of the 1953 Everest expedition. The cottage is a decent-sized place, so great for families or groups of friends, with five bedrooms – two doubles, three singles – and two bathrooms, a nicely furnished sitting room and a dining room with large table fashioned out of the old dairy. Everything is provided, including towels and bed linen, and there's free wifi, a wood-burning stove, central heating throughout and a well-equipped if smallish kitchen. They also have a washing machine, a couple of TVs, a DVD player and a games room for rainy days – not that unusual in this part of the world.  It's beautifully done out, with lovely, tastefully chosen furniture, and it really couldn't be cosier; but the real attraction is its position, with Capel Curig nearby and the Glyder Ridge and Carneddau mountain ranges offering scenic climbs – that is, if you can't make it to Snowdon itself (locally Yr Wyddfa), a short drive away. Less energetic folk can make do with the lovely but less ambitious walk along the old road between Capel Curig and Bethesda, or just a trip on the fantastic Snowdon Mountain Railway.
