The cottage is stunning with amazing views of Snowdon. This is our family’s third visit to Ship cottage. We recently stayed here for a week with our 2 children (and dog!) and it has been perfect! The cottage is absolutely beautiful and immaculately clean (I am very fussy... it really was spotless!!). It is well equipped and a real home from home. The kitchen is fantastic and we had everything we needed, including a washer/dryer. The living room is comfortable and cosy. The location of the cottage was perfect to explore north Wales and we had a fantastic time exploring the surrounding area. Basil was the perfect host. He was friendly and helpful, nearby if we needed and brought us a fabulous cake on the day we arrived! My children loved their stay in the cottage and were very sad to leave. It was a pleasure to stay here and we would love to return. I am quite certain we will be coming back next summer! Basil, thank you for the use of your lovely cottage.
Perfect stay in the middle of beautiful countryside. Pub nearby with good food, sheep outside the windows made it feel very rustic. All mod coms, good beds shower and bath. We were always happy to return to our temporary home after our days exploring the countryside. Just beware of the very narrow windy roads at the back, they barely fit a Ford fiesta! We'll always have happy memories of our stay, thank you.
Me & my friend stayed here for 3 nights the other week and it really exceeded our expectations. The cottage is stunning with amazing views of Snowdon. Basil has literally thought of everything. It's located in a little village but Canaerfon & Llanberis are only a short drive away, and there is plenty to do. There's a nice pub up the road and the locals are dead friendly. Some nice touches were the red velvet cake made by Basil (truly amazing) and the trout his friend caught us from the river! We had a great laugh and a few drinks with Basil and his mates on the last night! Thanks we can't wait to come back! See you soon! p.s
- avoid the co-op up the road its well expensive try morrisons or asda in Canaerfon.
This was our first visit to Ship cottage and it most definitely won't be the last. We stayed here for a week and it has been the most perfect little place. Ship cottage has everything that you need. It is clean, well equipped, a real home from home. The location of the cottage was perfect to explore north Wales. We had great weather all week and had beautiful views of snowdon whilst sitting out in the garden after a busy day exploring. The shed in the garden was a bonus for us as we we wanted to keep our bikes in there and we knew they were locked safe. We took our BBQ with us but there was a BBQ there if needed. Basil was very welcoming and helpful and recommended places for us to visit. He recommended a route for us to go on the bikes from the cottage to llanberis which was a lovely ride. He also recommended to climb snowdon on the miners route and we are so glad that we did. If you want anywhere to stay in north Wales, this is the place! Can't wait to come back already.
