About This Listing
Original slateworker's cottage located high up in the Ogwen Valley, Snowdonia, with great views. Sleeps four comfortably, can take one extra (sofabed) for just extra £10 pppn. Great for access to Snowdonia's mountains or Anglesey's beaches.
'Celyndy' is an original Welsh slateworker's cottage in Bethesda, Snowdonia. It accommodates families, couples or groups of friends comfortably.
In the heart of Snowdonia National Park, and just a short drive from Snowdon, it's the perfect base for the huge range of outdoor activities available in the area. Anglesey's stunning beaches are just as accessible in the other direction.
There are two bedrooms, one downstairs with double bed, one upstairs with two singles. Also a living room, separate dining room, kitchen and bathroom. The living room has two sofas, one of which is a double sofabed. There's a gas fire in the living room and gas central heating throughout. Outside there is a large garden and off-road parking.
Bethesda's high street is within walking distance and has grocery stores including a Tesco open every day until 11pm, a butcher (for superb Welsh lamb!), pubs and takeaways. It's right next to a large woodland park with river and playground. However, most notably, Bethesda is becoming known for having Europe's longest zip-wire! Right opposite Celyndy, on the other side of the valley and over Penrhyn Slate Quarry, the ride is 1,600 metres (roughly a mile) long.
Bethesda has a regular bus service. There is a railway station in the nearby university town of Bangor with arrivals from all over the UK.

The house had stunning views. The village was lovely and had a good chat with the friendly neighbours. Good for a late evening walk to take in the country side.
The overall condition of the accommodation and facilities were more similar to that of a hostel. There was opened food left in the kitchen, the bathroom was in need of repair and the upstairs bedroom was bare and basic. We had to park our car about 100m down the road with a friendly neighbour as the roads to the house were rough and not easily accessable for travellers who are not used to this type of driving.
The views of the quarry was absolutely breath taking and the mountains were stunning. Good for 1 or 2 nights stay.
Lovely little cottage located in a great area for zipworld experience! Spacious rooms with everything we needed! Friendly neighbourhood, very welcoming and happy to help with best local food and drinks places!
Lovely cottage overlooking the longest Zip line in Europe! Not a great amount in the village Bethesda, recommend the local Indian takeaway we had though! Although it was a beautiful sun trap, garden was overgrown so couldn't really sit outside. Cottage is ideal for a couple or family, just needs a bit of an update.. nicer bedding, lick of paint, etc. but overall we loved the stay.
The cottage is in a perfect location for activities such as the Zipwire (10 minutes)and also for visiting the beautiful Isle of Anglesey, Betws y Coes and Snowdonia. It is very comfortable, well equipped and peaceful and the neighbours were friendly and helpful. Our family of 4 adults really enjoyed and we would recommend the cottage to anyone who wants to visit the area.
We are a family of three and we stayed at The Cottage, owned by Mari and Rachel. We stayed there from 31st May to June 2nd for 2 nights. It is a lovely cottage,much bigger than it looks from outside. Very Clean and comfortable. Mari and Rachel had sent us by email all the information that we needed. We did try to contact them on arrival and they got back to us to make sure everything was alright. The next door neighbour Richard and Heyden were very helpful too. Heyden gave us the easy route for the Slate Quarry and some useful tips for visiting places. We enjoyed our stay very much that we will visit the place again and stay here at The Cottage. Thank you Mari, Rachel and Heyden. Diolch Yn Fawr ( Thank You Very Much) & Hwyl ( Goodbye ) Sethu, Eunice & Priya
Lovely cosy cottage nestling high on the hillside in the village of Bethesda. Stunning views outside and a lovely bath inside!
Kitchen well stocked with pots and utensils. Beds comfortable and living room very relaxing. Shower is superb and as mentioned the bath is lovely too. Very welcome after a day in the hills.
Plenty of parking for 2 small cars outside the front door, though as theres an obvious need for neighbours to turn by the property space needs to be allowed for this. The hosts were great.. no fuss whatsoever.
Dining room table in a cosy dining room where a number of games can be found too.
Very very peaceful spot within easy reach of bangor caernarfon anglesey and the hills of the national park.
Certainly well recommended.
The owner was not there but there is an easy way to get into the house. The owner was easily accessible afterward by phone. The street leading to the house is very narrow, it was difficult to pass with a car, but we made it. The house needs a little paint, but was nice overall.
