Cottages are great for group getaways, allowing you all to have plenty of space whilst all being together.

Here are some suggestions for great cottages for your special group get-together in North Wales this year:


  1. LLwynau


Close to Betws y Coed, this country farmhouse is the perfect getaway for those who want peace and quiet, combined with the great outdoors. Full of charm, you will feel as if you are right in the heart of the country, whilst also enjoying its cosy atmosphere. This house is full of character, a real home away from home.

If you’re taking the kids, don’t worry, there’s plenty to keep them occupied whether they run around in the gardens or make use of the games room inclusive of pool, table football and darts. Meanwhile, you can sit back in the large living room, catching up with friends and family and enjoying a glass or two of local wine.

2. Gilar



Sleeping 9 people, this Grade II listed farmhouse is the ideal setting for a special group getaway. Just 2 miles from the Snowdonia National Park, it is an idyllic setting for keen walkers or cyclists. But rest assured; if you prefer a light stroll followed by an afternoon in a warm country pub, the farmhouse is set in 500 acres of farmland with its own mountain, ancient woodlands and ponds, so there’s plenty to explore close to home and the local pub is just a short 1-mile walk away.

This tranquil location was once seat to the High Sheriff of Denbighshire and to this day is complete with large open fireplaces, as well as original feature beams. All this, alongside a whole range of activities to discover in the area, makes it a perfect location for your group getaway. 

3. Afallon     


If you like a room with a view, this spectacular property is one of the best! Sleeping up to 14 people, Afallon is an idyllic haven on the LLeyn Peninsula, for your family or grown-up getaway. Stroll down the country paths for half a mile and you will reach two key places for your group – a beach and a pub. Why not relive your childhood with some cricket on the beach, or dip your toes in the sea?

Whether you’re planning to go away with friends or take the whole family to the coast, this destination is ideal. If you’re taking the kids, head down to the basement and watch their eyes light up as they catch a glimpse of the table tennis and table football; Afallon provides a little something for everyone.

 4. Y Gregas

Y Gregas

Y Gregas is a beautiful barn conversion set in the quiet countryside of Cae Athro, a short drive from Caernarfon or the beautiful beaches of Anglesey. Perfect for those who like to blow the cobwebs away with a brisk walk in the countryside or those who prefer to stay local spending quality time with family and friends.

Sleeping up to 12 people, Y Gregas is a great place for all group occasions. Plus it’s pet-friendly, so if one of your friends can’t live without their pooch for too long, assure them they can bring them along!

 5. Glain Orme

 Glain Orme

Set on the slopes of the Great Orme in Llandudno, this property has views of both the beach and the mountains. Again, this is a large property sleeping up to 12 people so it is great for your special group occasions. There is plenty to do in Llandudno from skiing to donkey riding to enjoying a lovely afternoon tea. This Llandudno villa would be perfect for a birthday or family get-together.

 6. Sant Seiriol

 Sant Seiriol

Sant Seiriol is a townhouse located in idyllic Beaumaris, known for its beaches and fun activities. With pubs and beaches within hopping distance, it is great for those who are less mobile or those who like to stay close to home.  But if you fancy going further afar, Snowdonia is a drive away and within an hour, you could be starting your ascent up Snowdon via foot or bike. Or for those who prefer, the train is waiting to take you to the top.

7. Ty’r Efail

 Ty R Efail

Otherwise known as Forge House, Ty’r Efail is a converted forge with spacious bedrooms for all. Found in the hills of the Conwy valley, it is a tranquil location that is perfect when you want to spend quality time with your friends or family. Ty’r Efail is a spot to find real peace and quiet, ideal for your special group occasion.
