Gilfach-Y-Nant is a three bedroom holiday cottage in Beddgelert near Snowdon. On the banks of the river Glaslyn, the cottage offers the perfect location for guests wanting to explore this popular picture postcard village and the surrounding mountains.
The cottage itself is the end property on a small row of terraced houses just on the edge of the village with off road parking for 2 cars. Although a fairly recent build, the cottage is constructed with traditional stonewalls under a slate roof, synonymous with this part of Snowdonia.
A spacious well-equipped kitchen to the rear of the house overlooks a tranquil enclosed back garden which runs right down to the banks of the river. Inside, sleek white units house a fridge, freezer and dishwasher as well as a modern fan oven with electric hob. A circular dining table sits under a wall mounted digital tv at the far end of the room.
From here we can pass through into the lounge via a small dining area. A second circular dining table in this space is suitable for more formal dining perhaps. The adjoining lounge comes complete with a wonderful log burner, perfect for warming your toes after a long walk in the mountains. Facing the fire, two comfortable leather sofas and matching armchair sit on a sumptuous cream carpet.
The stairway leads us up to the first floor landing. Three bedrooms in total, one twin room and two double rooms. Both the small double and twin room look out onto the river at the rear of the cottage. The larger master bedroom is to the front of the house as is the bathroom. The bathroom houses a shower over bath arrangement as well as wc and washbasin. Plenty of wardrobe space in each of the bedrooms and high quality beds and linen as you expect.

Beddgelert is a bustling little village hidden away among the tall peaks of Snowdonia. Popular with locals and tourists alike it boasts a lovely selection of pubs, restaurants and tearooms as well as the magnificent Glaslyn Ice-cream Parlor. (Seriously, don’t leave without trying the Ice-
There are lots of walks straight from the village. Snowdon itself could be attempted from the door of the cottage but less experienced walkers might prefer to drive the 3 miles up to Pen Y Pass to give themselves a head start. A less strenuous but equally picturesque route to consider is the ‘Lon Gwyrfai’ path which leads up to Rhyd Ddu on Snowdon’s eastern slopes. This newly opened path can be combined with the Welsh Highland Steam railway to give you a circular route back down to Beddgelert.
Beics Beddgelert will happily rent you some mountain bikes if you want to explore the miles of green cycle way and bridle paths that criss-cross this area. No, there isn’t anywhere flat to cycle. And the mountain biking centres at Antur Stiniog and Coed Y Brenin will exhaust even the most enthusiastic and experienced cyclist.
Watersports is also a big draw for a lot of our guests. Kayaking down the fast flowing Afon Glaslyn will take you right past the Gilfach Y Nant whilst the lakes of Llyn Dinas and Llyn Gwynant nearby are a haven of peace and tranquility even during the busy summer months.
