Holiday Cottage in Beddgelert Near Snowdon | Gilfach-Y-Nant

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.

    Lovely, relaxing week in this very comfortable and well equipped cottage. It is in a beautiful setting with the river at the bottom of the garden and Beddgelert is a great location for a holiday with several stunning beaches, Anglesey and of course Snowdonia all within 30 minutes drive.

  2. Kate Osborn says:

    We really enjoyed our stay at Cwn Y Gwynant and found the cottage to be comfortable, clean and well placed. The outdoor seating area by the river was lovely and the beds were very comfy. We weren’t sure which the allocated parking spaces were but found parking on the road easy.

    Lovely cottage, everything you need, especially In the kitchen. Absolutely loved the location re the river and little village. We arrived with 3 small children so did travel out to find something to do due to the weather. We went to Barmouth, Anglesey and LLanberis On the train. In the summer It would be good sitting outside and the children could make use of the garden. Would go back. Never knew beddgelert was named after the dog named Gelert (children listened to the story with interest). I didn’t realise the grave existed else would have taken them to see it.

    Pam, Kate and family – Wirral visited February

    This was our second stay this year in this wonderful cottage, having enjoyed ourselves so much in the summer we came back for an extra week to see the autumn colours. We love coming up to north Wales every year for the walks, hikes and spectacular scenery and Beddgelert is one of our favourite villages so to be based there is fantastic (we have already booked for next summer!!) The cottage is well presented, clean and tidy, the kitchen has everything you could need for self catering although there are plenty of places to eat out in the area. The only thing I would like to suggest to the owners is maybe some coat hooks and a shoe tidy/shelf in the kitchen, although there are coat hooks by the front door we mainly used the kitchen door and after hiking/walking on some damp/muddy days would have been nice to keep all the coats, walking boots etc together in the kitchen rather than by the front door as this opens straight into the lounge…..but this is a small niggle and in no way detracts from the cottage.
    Already counting the months/days till we are back

    A very homely and well equipped cottage in a beautiful picture postcard village. Well positioned to see Snowdonia and the north and south coasts of the lleyn peninsula. Appreciated the Bara Brith,waffles, milk and tea bags. A very relaxing and comfortable stay.Highly recommended.

  6. Joanne Hughes says:

    Just returned from a weeks stay in Glifach y Nant, Beddgelert and had the most fabulous time. A super cottage with plenty of room for our family of 4. We didn’t want for anything as its very well equipped and was in immaculate condition. The view from the decking area by the river is just stunning whatever the weather throws at you! Location is superb and an ideal base to explore all that Snowdonia has to offer. A couple of minutes walk and you are in the beautiful town with its quaint shops and of course the ice cream parlour which we visited a few times!! We had the pleasure of meeting the owners Beth and her husband who were very accommodating and knowledgable about the area. We loved it and have recommended it to family and friends and would love to return ourselves.

  7. Jane Ainley says:

    We have just returned from a really enjoyable stay at this cottage. It is nicely furnished and has a well equipped Kitchen. We didn’t need to use the wood burner, although our 4 year old kept wanting to light it! The River at the bottom of the garden was a big attraction for our son and the garden was safe for him to run around with a gate to keep him in.

    Plenty of walks direct from the Cottage and a fantastic scenic trip on the Welsh Highland Line is a must. We had excellent Pizzas at the Pizzeria and delicious Ice Cream from the parlour, all in all the village is beautiful.
