Ashcoast House is in the small village of Talysarn in Nantlle Valley. Approximately halfway between the town of Caernarfon and Porthmadog harbour. Villages of Rhyd-Ddu and Beddgelert, at the foot of Snowdon are only a short drive away. Nearest beach is the Blue-Flag Dinas Dinlle, a 10-minute drive from Ashcoast House.

Ashcoast House is within walking distance of Dorothea lakes. These are 5 large and very deep former slate quarry pits that have been filled up with water from underground springs. You can take a well-defined and easily accessible footpath, straight from the house, around and between the lakes to the village of Nantlle. Ideal for walking dogs or just stretching your legs and enjoying the fabulous views of Nantlle Ridge​ and Snowdon summit.
