Property Description

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. Shop 1 mile.
