Description

Bright, airy former vicarage, with open fire and wood burning stove, ideal for walkers with Snowdon paths from the door.

Dating back to the Victorian era and a former vicarage, this large detached property is located slightly off the A5 historical route between Betws-y-Coed and Capel Curig. The property is an excellent location for visitors wanting the walks of Snowdon on the doorstep, including Llanberis Path, the easiest and longest route, The Miners’ Track, Snowdon Ranger Path and the Watkin Path. The holiday property has been carefully restored retaining many original features, boasting a cosy and atmospheric wood-burning stove, whilst a medieval highgate bed captures the Victorian period. The elevated gardens to the rear (steps may be slippery when wet) overlooks the mountains and local countryside.
Capel Curig nestles in the foothills of Moel Siabod, Y Glyderau and Y Carneddau, endorsing the majestic view of the Snowdon horseshoe. Afon Llygwy flows through the village, making its way down to Betws-y-Coed, a nearby village where forests, lakes and mountains combine to produce a stunning landscape. Coffee shops, craft houses, a miniature steam railway and a number of good eating houses are located in the centre of Betws-y-Coed village.
Day trips to consider would be Bodnant Gardens, set in one of North Wales’ most famous estates, or Conway, with its castle walls, marina, selection of shops and delicatessens, not forgetting the smallest house in the UK according to the Guinness Book of Records. Llangollen in the opposite direction is a pleasant Welsh town with its horse-drawn canal boats, light railway, Dr Who experience, and world famous festivals such as the annual Eisteddfod. Beddgelert is a short drive and is good for walkers or children wishing to visit Gelert’s Grave. Most areas of the Lleyn Peninsula are within an hour’s drive, where good beaches and watersports can be found. Portmeirion village is also great for a day trip with its exotic plants and Italianate buildings. Fishing and golf are available within 5 miles. Shop 1 mile, pub ¼ mile.

Living/dining room with wood-burning stove and patio doors to garden. Well-equipped fitted kitchen with range and electric cooker. Utility. Sitting room with open fire. Narrow steep stairs to first floor: Three double bedrooms, two with en-suite shower room and toilet. Twin bedroom. Bathroom with roll-top bath, shower cubicle and toilet.

    Cartref is in an ideal location for exploring Snowdonia National Park. It's only a short drive to the lovely village of Betwsy-y-Coed and a short walk to the delightful pub, Tyn-y-Coed which serves good food and beer!. Cartref is perfect for family/friend gatherings. It is extremely well equipped including a utility/boot room with washing machine and tumble dryer (paramount for family and active outdoor holidays). There was a welcome pack on arrival including tea, coffee, sugar, fresh milk and Welsh cakes etc..The house was clean and tidy and had a lovely relaxed/chill out feel to it. The owners were incredibly helpful with a query I had prior to the holiday and seemed prepared to go above and beyond in making our stay enjoyable and most importantly, memorable. We definitely hope to return. Thank you.

    Cartref is an ideal location for our family being near to for instance Snowdon, Betws y Coed, Conwy, Llangollen, Beddgelert and Portmerion. The house is a very suitable family home with four bedrooms and two living rooms, as well as table and chairs in the kitchen. The pub just down the road to Capel Curig is very convenient for meals, too.

    Location is great, needs redecorating throughout, black mould and rotten floor board under master bedroom window and water stain on the ceiling, very high bed but very comfy. The house is roomy , but does smell of dogs. The overall condition of the house does not warrant the 4* rating .

    We rented this property out between 7 friends for a week of walking in Snowdonia. The property met all of our needs and surpassed them in many ways. I would recommend the property to anyone and would certainly return. There is plenty of space and all of the furniture and equipment within the property is in very good working order. I was slightly concerned before we arrived about the proximity to the A5, but you could not hear the road once in the property and you barely noticed it was even there. It also means that the property is very well situated and there is easy access to the majority of the hills and to the shops. You can do a number of walks and bike rides from the door which is always better than long drives. Highly recommended property.

    A beautiful cottage in a stunning location. The decor and facilities were excellent throughout, with some nice pleasing touches such as fresh milk, tea coffee, logs and coal for the fire waiting for us upon our arrival. We stayed in the cottage whilst on a photography trip. It was great to get home after a hard days walking and climbing to unwind and warm up in front of the fire

    An all too brief stay. Although located on the main A5, it was remarkably quiet. The location was perfect for access to the Marin Trail for the mountain bikers and for Moel Siabod for the walkers. We appreciated the two lounges, the comfortable bedrooms, and the wi-fi.
