“Lovely cottage in a great location”
Reviewed 5 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Ship Cottage is a wonderful place to stay with great views of Snowdon. It is your archetypal country cottage in a peaceful location but with easy access to nearby towns/ tourist spots. Basil is a great host and very helpful. It is well equipped with all you need for a comfortable stay with the recent addition of Wi-fi which is very reliable. I would definitely recommend a stay at Ship Cottage.

“Beautiful 5 Star accommodation cottage”
Reviewed 19 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We were a party of four - two married couples in our 70's - travelling up from the West Country. The reception we had from Basil on arrival was very warm and friendly - nothing was too much trouble. The cottage itself was exceptional in every respect - ideally situated for exploring Snowdonia ( with a marvellous view of Mount Snowdonia from the cottage) - the surrounding areas including the Northern coast of Wales and Anglesey. We had superb weather the whole week we stayed which helped to make our holiday a great success.
A lot of thought and hard work has gone into making this cottage so comfortable - you've got it just right Basil.

“Immaculately clean and cosy cottage”
Reviewed 30 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We travelled as a family with our 5 year old and very busy 10 month old. (Was very pleased to see a stairgate already in place!)

Firstly the cottage really was spotless. It felt fresh with none of the 'mustiness' older properties sometimes harbour. Also the photos don't give a true impression of the space this cottage has.

We really felt at home straight away. Basil met us at the cottage and answered our questions. He was approachable warm and helpful.

The kitchen had everything we needed and more. The log burner added to the traditional feel of the decor.

Our bedrooms were my favourite rooms. The light in the morning and evening was beautiful. And green views out of every window!

The only (minor) drawback for us was the lack of wifi, but my husband was able to access 4G standing outside on the decking.

“Delightful cottage! Can't wait to return!”
Reviewed 2 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed here for 4 nights with our 2 children and had a fantastic time exploring the surrounding area. The cottage is absolutely beautiful and immaculately clean (I am very fussy... it really was spotless!!). The kitchen is well equipped and we had everything we needed, including a washer/dryer. The living room is comfortable and cosy and we enjoyed spending the evening playing games or watching DVDs. Basil was the perfect host. He was friendly and helpful and nearby if we needed. My children loved their stay in the cottage and were very sad to leave, it was like a home from home! It was a pleasure to stay here and we would love to return.

“Spotless cottage with everything you need in a great location”
Reviewed 28 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed here with some friends for 3 nights and had a great time. Basil was a great host, the kitchen was very well equipped and cottage very handy for exploring Snowdonia (only 5/10 minute drive into Llanberis). Top marks... Wouldn't hesitate to recommend!
