Holiday Cottage For Large Groups in Eryri (Snowdonia) | Llety-Llydan

Dog FriendlyNear Pub

Sleeping 17, Llety-Llydan is a totally unique holiday cottage offering. Traditional stone buildings, set in the rural Eryri countryside have been beautifully converted into a fantastic accommodation for large groups. It’s perfect for multi groups of friends and families looking to make the most of Eryri and all the adventure activities it has to offer.

Made up of two connecting buildings, the L shaped property is set in a wonderfully wild rural setting whilst still being only 15 mins from the popular harbour town of Porthmadog and the ever picturesque Beddgelert. With plenty of space both outside and in, it’s great for those that have their own bikes, kayaks, SUP’s etc that they want to bring along as storage won’t be a problem.

Due to its location, there is plenty of walking, running and mountain biking trails directly from the property. A short drive will take you to the more well-used trails at Coed Y Brenin and Betws Y Coed. In Eryri, you're naturally never far from the great river and sea entry points for water sports.

The downstairs is home to a completely open plan kitchen, dining room and sitting room area. With floor to ceiling patio doors, the views are stunning. The room is very modern with exposed stonework and very trendy kitchen and dining area, the whole feel is very sociable and will certainly be where you all get together. Depending on how your groups are split, there are eight (yes eight) fridges, one allocated to each room and so if you decide to do meals etc separately, you have this option - this is a fantastic idea and works really well in terms of how it has been designed.

There are eight bedrooms all together comprising of two doubles, five twins and one triple - all ensuite. Six of the bathrooms have a shower over bath arrangement and two have a shower only. All bedrooms have their own tv, heavy oak beds and cosy bedding and all with incredible views of the green hills and mountains.

Floor Plans




Llety-Llydan is located in Llanfrothen, a beautiful village just east of Penrhyndeudreath, home to the famous Portmeirion village. The property itself is slightly off the beaten track, giving you plenty of space which if you have 17 people in the mix is a great welcome! There are plenty of walks directly from the property and in the evening, great spaces to enjoy, especially in the summer months. There's a fantastic village pub too which is very popular, especially with the locals.

Porthmadog is the nearest place for supplies and where you will find all the main supermarkets and plenty of cafes and restaurants and a harbour to enjoy. It is also at the entrance to the Pen Llyn (Llyn Peninsula) if you are looking to explore there. It is also your nearest beach - black rock sands is where you want to head to.

Beddgelert is 15 mins away, where you have lots of beautiful walks and at the gateway to the Eryri mountains - you are approx 40 mins away from Yr Wydda (Snowdon) itself and Cadair Idris in the opposite direction in Dolgellau.

Most of the key attractions and places to go to enjoy the great activities Eryri is famous for are between 30 and 40 mins away - you really are very well placed to enjoy a huge variety of things to do.

For mountain biking, you have the famous Coed Y Brenin which is mountain biking mecca for enthusiasts. You are also only 40 mins away from the other popular trails in Gwydir Forest near Betws Y Coed.

The Zip World Fforest Coaster is a great place to go especially if you have children in the mix - there are a total of 10 activities to take part in here and great for a range of ages. It is also located near to the famous Swallow Falls and The Fairy Glen and so certainly lots to do to make a full day of it.

Bala is home to the National White Water Centre where the damn controlled rapids ensure you have great conditions at all times of the year. The Slate caverns and Zip World zip lines are based in Blaenau Ffestiniog .

Adventure activities including gorge walking, canyoning, climbing, kayaking and canoeing etc are all readily available through local companies and many of the places they use are very close by to the property itself.

Bryn Llydan was a beautiful house in a stunning setting with everything we needed to have a relaxing weekend including celebrating a 60th birthday whilst there. There were a few walks from the door, and a bonus was the EV charger which wasn’t advertised when we booked. Thanks for a great stay.

A Week at Llety-Llydan

We numbered fifteen in total with an age range of 7-75 years. Throw in 3 canine companions and you’d be hard-pressed to find many suitable holiday options in North Wales.

Llety-Llydan pretty much ticked all the boxes as far as our party was concerned. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and comfortable and the spacious open-plan living area ensured no-one felt confined or restricted despite the best efforts of the weather to curtail our outdoor activities.

The location is splendid with panoramic views of Eryri from the doorstep and adjacent patio. Beyond this an extensive paddock, much larger than we had envisaged, provided the perfect space for the children and dogs to play in safety.

Sian and Dafydd, our hosts, exuded warmth and friendliness, ably assisted by Danielle and her husband and it was a pleasant surprise, almost unique in our experience, not to see a ‘rule book’ or ‘warning notices’ posted within the property.

If circumstances permit we would all love a return visit and another chance to explore the spectacular landscape of the region and, from a rather selfish point of view, an opportunity to reacquaint myself with the local avian stars – the magnificent Glaslyn Ospreys!

House and views are beautiful, the weather was lovely and the garden was very spacious for activities and relaxation time. The rooms are well kept and maintained with comfy beds and appropriate sized bathrooms.

We had a wonderful stay. Place was spotless on arrival and they were flexible on arrival time.
If we had any questions or problems they were seen to ASAP.
This property is perfect for a large group of people and the views are spectacular.
Only suggestions we have are:
– A information pack on arrival including things like, 1) what we should do on departure I.e key, bed linen, bins.
2) closest GP
3) local restaurants/ activities
– WiFi throughout the property

We couldn’t fault our stay and had a wonderful time! We will be recommending this place.
Thank you!


A fantastic weekend spent with family from toddlers to great grandparents.
The house and location was perfect with lots of space inside and out, the children loved meeting the ponies and having freedom to play in the extensive garden.

The owners Sian and Dafydd met us on arrival and showed us everything we needed ,nothing was too much trouble and the chocolate cake was so tasty.

We loved everything about our stay and will be returning. Highly recommended

Fantastic Large Family property. Beautiful Views. Very clean house all bedrooms are en suite which suited us as a big group of friends. Ideal spacious kitchen with plenty of storage. On arrival, we met up with the very friendly owners, which showed us everything we needed to know. They also left us a very tasty chocolate cake. We really enjoyed our time in Llety Llydan. We would like to come back next year .

It was exactly as described in the adverts, we couldn’t have specified anything better had we designed it ourselves. it was a perfect match for our needs.

Abbie and Martin

We had a wonderful time, all 13 of us (8 adults and 5 children). The children loved the extensive grounds and spent a lot of time running about and we were able to relax without worrying about them. Llety-Llydan is a great place and was so, so much better than we imagined it would be. Sian and Dafydd were wonderful hosts, they were so friendly and warm and nothing was too much trouble for them. We were fortunate to see Nell the foal, this really made the children\’s holiday seeing her.

The views are stunning and seeing the sun set behind the mountains every evening was breathtaking. In short a perfect location. this is a MUST for a family get-together in an idyllic location.


Had a lovely time, accommodation was perfect for our extended family holiday.
Llety-Llydan is in such a beautiful location we will definitely come back! We were extremely lucky with the weather and my only comment is that we would have liked some sun loungers to use on the fantastic patio area, a small thing in what was otherwise a brilliant stay.
