  • I'm looking for peace + quiet, is this the right location for me?
    Trawsfynydd Holiday Village is a quiet and peaceful place, even at the busiest times of the year. There are no amusements, games rooms or club house. There is a small bistro / bar which is open for meals and drinks but its opening hours and operating conditions are strictly laid down by the Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park. Most visitors to Trawsfynydd Holiday Village are out and about during the day, visiting local sights or taking part in activities. The majority of properties are used solely by their owners and are empty most of the year (especially during weekdays).
  • I'm looking for pet friendly accommodation in North Wales?"
    Most of our log cabins allow up to 2 dogs to stay at £5 per dog per night. We have a large (3.5 acre), enclosed dog walking area with formal paths for owners. A great place where dogs can get off their leads! Dogs coming to stay receive a small welcome pack on arrival. Dogs must not be left in our log cabins by themselves nor in cars overnight.
  • Looking for accommodation for a large group?
    Our log cabins sleep up to 6 guests each and we currently manage 10 that are within a few minutes walk of each other. See details HERE or contact us with your specific requirements HERE
  • Are the bunk beds big enough for adults?
    Yes, the bunk beds in our log cabins are the size of single beds. So they are around 6'3" long and 3" wide. They are built into the rooms and so are sturdy. This is what our guests said when we asked on Facebook
  • I'm looking for a log cabin with a hot tub?
    Unfortunately, none of our properties have a hot tub. Lots of reasons but the main ones are: we're in a really peaceful, quiet location and they'd potentially disturb that our water comes from a bore hole and hot tubs use a lot of water the drains on site are very old and don't have the capacity for us emptying a hot tub and finally our cleaners don't have time between lets to clean and maintain hot tubs to the standard that we would require Sit on our decks and enjoy the views - you don't need a hot tub for that
  • Are the properties caravans with cladding?
    No. All of our wooden cabins in Wales are traditional Norwegian (not Alpine) log cabins. They are warm and cosy, heated by electricity. Initially the wooden cabins were built be workmen from Norway. They taught local builders how to build the cabins and it was local trades people who completed the site. Due to the nature of the cabins they have to be regularly painted and maintained. Owners have changed the look of the cabins, over the years and this is why no two are alike. Being in the Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park, the wooden cabins can't be extended beyond their original footprint (even adding a deck has to have planning permission) and there are controls over roofing materials, types of windows that can be installed and the colour of paint. All of this means that the charm of Trawsfynydd Holiday Village has been maintained. See all of the log cabins by clicking this button.
