Ashcoast House is a modern 3 bedroom self catering holiday cottage located in the small rural village of Talysarn in Nantlle Valley, roughly halfway between the town of Caernarfon and Porthmadog harbour. Village of Rhyd-Ddu at the foot of Snowdon is only 6 miles away. A further 4 miles and you'll reach the village of Beddgelert, one of Snowdonia’s loveliest villages and a favourite with all visitors. If you fancy a visit to the beach, the award-winning Dinas Dinlle is only a 10 minute drive away.

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.
