Bodawen is a very traditional welsh stone cottage which has retained it's character and charm. Including low doorways.....mind your head. Everyone who visits is fascinated by its history and quirkiness. It is an ideal base for exploring Snowdonia.

The space

The guest accommodation comprises a lounge an attic bedroom and another double bedroom. The attic bedroom is accessed from the guest lounge via a paddle step ladder. The other bedroom is on the first floor accessed via a conventional flight of stairs. There is central heating but should guests feel the need to get really cozy there is a log burning stove. The kitchen and bathroom are shared with myself. Guests are welcome to use the kitchen for their own cooking needs.

There is no TV here so it's very much make your own entertainment. There is a small library and a selection of traditional games. I can help with plans to visit local sites of interest.

I live in a fairly rural setting and my village has no shop or pub. However nearby towns and villages have some very nice eateries, shops, castles, post offices, steam railways, beaches, gardens.

The bus service is pretty infrequent and therefore I could not in all honesty say it is an ideal location for those relying on buses to get to and from here.

Most popular attractions are within a half hour drive of here and I can advise on what activities suit particular weather conditions or abilities.

Guest access

Guests have access to their own lounge and bedroom plus the shared kitchen and bathroom.

Interaction with guests

Guests have their own separate space and I never venture into that unless invited. Just close the door and you're on your own. The kitchen is shared and tends to be the meeting space. I leave guests to decide the level of interaction they prefer.

Other things to note

Please be aware that if you book for two persons then it is understood you are going to share a double bed. If you wish otherwise then please ask at time of booking.

I'm a fairly chilled chap so can, and have, coped with just about anyone. All I ask is you clean up after yourselves and respect my stuff.....I'm happy for you to use whatever you need in the kitchen...just treat it as if it was not your own but your mothers.

My boyfriend and I spent a great couple of days at Luke's place. The house was easy to find and Luke was very welcoming. The room in the attic was cosy (although note the ceiling is sloping so you can only stand up in the middle). It's perfect though for a night or two and has a well equipped kitchen if you're cooking. Luke kindly lit the wood burner for us after a day out in the rain! Thank you!

Great place to stay in sensible distance from Snowdon, Llanberis and Caernarfon. Quirky bedroom and an attentive host

We LOVED our stay at Luke's cottage. It has a historic feel and Luke made our check in super easy. It's the perfect location if you're planning to drive over to Snowden, and there is actually a Co-op as well as a pub about six minutes (driving) away. Highly recommended!
