Amazing place & location. House was very clean and well equipped with everything you would need. The host even left us some Welsh cakes! Perfect place to get away from city life. So peaceful with great views.

We liked the place. We were only four people. We went in September so that we could hike up mount Snowden. The only downside is that the beds were really soft. The mattresses need to be changed.

The reviews we read on this house are wrong and harsh. Yes the house is old however it's full of character. It's clean, spacious and has everything you need. The owner even left some essentials -bread, egg, milk etc. The location of the house is...More

About the neighbourhood
Pont Arenig is on the edge of a delightful, friendly village. There are fields around the property and spectacular mountain views. However, the shop and pub are only a five minute walk. The shop sells everything you need for your stay, from fresh chicken korma to a bicycle repair kit! If you want a cosy bar and restaurant then Ellen's Castle Hotel, a ten minute walk, is open to non-residents.
Getting around
Tired of driving? the train station in the village is served by the famous Conwy Line and connects with the Ffestiniogg Steam Railway then on to Porthmadog for the Welsh Highland Railway and Cambrian Coastal line. In season, the Snowdonia Sherpa bus service makes A to B walks possible and resolves parking problems.
