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.

    Hi, we are just back from a lovely weekend in Beddgelert. The house was as expected, comfortable and practical. The location is perfect with easy walking access to the shops and restaurants. Beddgelert is beautiful and has a lot to offer. The single bathroom was a bit of a strain for x5 of us but the rest of the house was well equipped. We had a continuous problem with ants in the kitchen. After a long day walking sitting in front of the fire was very relaxing.

  2. Jones says:

    Great location within a 2 minute walk to the village. Clean and cosy house, warm and well maintained and loved sitting by the river at the back of the house.
    Ideal for families and couples.

    We really enjoyed our autumn break here – the colours are fantastic at this time of year and it stayed dry, apart from one day. Cottage was in a great location – central to everything and with some great walks straight from the door. The cottage was clean, roomy, well-laid out, and well-equipped. Heating kept the house very warm, and the fire not necessary at all. Speedy wifi kept the teenagers happy. If we were to ask for anything more, maybe some salt, pepper and sugar in the kitchen, and somewhere to put towels in the bedrooms? While the coffee maker looked swish, the village store did not stock the pods. We also found the rubbish collection system confusing – perhaps a very clear instruction on when to put bins out would be helpful as I fear we missed a day. The village itself is lovely and has everything you need including a well-equipped shop, pubs and cafes. Kids enjoyed going up Snowdon via Rhyd Ddu, which is very accessible from the village – but be aware you need £5 in change for the car park as the machine did not accept cards.

    We had a lovely stay here with our 3 children. The house is lovely, as is the village of Beddgelert. I would highly recommend, and look forward to returning.

  5. Tim and Jensine says:

    Just returned from another wonderful stay here, in such beautiful surroundings. This is a lovely cottage to stay in with the rocky Glaslyn River at the bottom of the garden and many wonderful walks straight from Cottage.
    Had the pleasure of meeting the owner Bethan who was very keen to attend to our every need.
    Looking forward to returning to the cottage in the not too distant future.

  7. Enid Clarke says:

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Gilfach y Nant Beddgelert.The property is ideally located at edge of village the garden was lovely and right by the river which sounds fantastic.Well presented property we stayed as a couple but plenty of room for a family of six.Did not use the lovely log burner due to choice suffer from dust allergies other heating was available and it was lovely and warm.Off road parking very convenient you don’t really need to leave the village local store and enjoyed our food at cafe Conwy lovely home made food.Excellent pub at Tanyonnen will definitely go back.

  8. Sheila Talbot says:

    We enjoyed our stay in Beddgelert and the cottage is ideal for 2 couples on a walking holiday. It is spacious, well equipped, warm and clean, with plenty of storage space. We would come again.

    A few minor niggles – the fridge doesn’t have a rack in the door for storing milk upright and our bottles leaked constantly – hooks in bedrooms and the bathroom would be useful – the kitchen bin is awkward to use and small – more toilet rolls and a small bar of soap would have been nice.

  9. James Maddison says:

    An excellent choice of accommodation, superbly located, very well equipped, spacious and clean. A short walk to the centre of the village with all the choices to eat/drink so very convenient. No complaints whatsoever, we could not find the DVD Player but this was a very minor issue and we recommend this cottage highly.

  10. Elvira says:

    The cottage as great, awesome location and very clean. Perfect to do loads of walking routes without having to take the car or just chill in the garden enjoying the great views.

    Totally recommend it.

  11. Garry & Karen says:

    Just returned from a lovely weeks stay in this cottage which for 4 adults met our needs perfectly. It’s well stocked and ideally located within the village to allow you to explore the many walks on your doorstep whilst also having the option to walk along the road (or river path) to a number of pubs and places to eat plus the a few nice shops.
    Off road parking for two cars plus free Wifi, good standard furnishings along with wood burner all contribute to providing a comfortable stay. The owner is available and very helpful should you have any problems (not that we had any) which adds to your ‘peace of mind’.
    This is the second year running that we have use Dioni and can’t fault the service they have provided. We are already planning next years trip.

  12. Janet Palmer says:

    This holiday cottage is in a fantastic location, all the home comforts were there. The kitchen is well equipped, and the whole cottage is so very comfortable and warm. The views from the bottom of the garden, where the river runs past are really special, looking up towards the mountains. We had to contact the owners during our stay over a small problem which was resolved immediately, thank you so much for that and also for the welcome gifts left for us. We will definately be booking this cottage again as it is by far the best self catering property we have rented in this part of North Wales.
