Meet the team

Manager recommends: A nice contrast to on-the-go activity breaks and walking holidays, the quiet calm of sunset over the lake is a perfect end to any day. Set in 40 acres of wooded grounds with stunning views over Llyn Gwynant and Snowdon, a Snowdonia national park holiday in this beautiful rural retreat would make a marvellous family break.
