Ashcoast House in Nantlle Valley, is the perfect centre for your Snowdonia adventure.
​Close to the mountains of Snowdonia, beaches of the Llyn Peninsula and the coastline of Anglesey

Ashcoast House is located in village of Talysarn in the Nantlle Valley. It is roughly half way between Caernarfon and Porthmadog. The 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. Nearest beach, Dinas Dinlle is less than 6 miles (15 min drive).

Ashcoast House is within walking distance of Dorothea lakes: Five large and very deep former slate quarry pits that have been filled up with water from underground springs. A well-defined and easily accessible footpath, straight from the house, takes you around and between the lakes to the village of Nantlle. Perfect for walking dogs or just stretching your legs and enjoying the views.

Talysarn and nearby Penygroes are small and quiet villages with a few takeaways and small grocery shops. Much bigger choice of shops, pubs, cafés, restaurants and nightlife can be found in nearby Caernarfon, Bangor, Criccieth and Porthmadog.
