Description of Ashcoast House

A modern semi-detached house with 3 bedrooms (King + Twin + Single), with front and enclosed rear gardens. Private off-road parking for 2 cars. Gas central heating, fully double glazed, with all the 'home away from home comforts': duvets, pillows, bed linen, towels, all provided. Baby travel cot/playpen & mattress can be provided on request.
Small village of Talysarn is roughly half way between Caernarfon and Porthmadog.
Village of Rhyd-Ddu at the foot of Snowdon is only 6 miles away. Another 4 miles and you'll reach the village of Beddgelert. The nearest beach, Dinas Dinlle is less than 6 miles (15 minutes drive).

Ashcoast House is within walking distance of Dorothea lakes. Five very deep former slate quarries, filled with water from underground springs. An easily accessible footpath, straight from the house, takes you around the lakes to the village of Nantlle. Perfect for walking dogs, stretching your legs and enjoying the views.

Village of Talysarn is within easy reach of the Nantlle Ridge peaks: Mynydd Graig Goch, Garnedd Goch and Craig Cwm Silyn. You can leave the car at the house and walk miles from the doorstep, exploring the mountains and lakes.

Talysarn and Penygroes are small and quiet villages with a few takeaways and pubs. Those seeking bigger choice of pubs, cafés, restaurants and night life need to head towards Caernarfon 8 miles to the north or Criccieth and Porthmadog roughly 12 miles to the south.
