  • Description


    Hello! We are a couple in our mid twenties (with a cat Molly) who have just moved to a small village in Snowdonia National Park, North Wales. We are looking forl help and hope to make some new friends in the process!! Jack is very interested in his mountain biking and works between London and wales. I work at the local University and love climbing/walking.

    We have bought a beautiful house which is in need of renovation. There is lots of work to do within the house mainly in the attic including loft insulation, plastering, plumbing, floor stripping and general decorating. However part of the house is already complete which provides a comfortable stay...the living room has been decorated beautifully and has a great wood burner, a good bathroom with bath(no shower yet), 2 toilets. 4 rooms. We have hot running water and a working kitchen.

    Within the village there is one pub, however a two mile walk will take you to Conwy falls cafe and a little further to Betws-y-coed (shops). We are surrounded by the best mountain bike trails, climbing and walking trails north wales has to offer. Less than an hours drive will take you to the coastal line.
