Pet Friendly Holiday Cottage Near Beddgelert | Nanmor | Dioni

Pet Friendly Holiday Cottage Near Beddgelert | Nanmor

This pet friendly holiday cottage near Beddgelert is a great example of a stone built traditional welsh farmhouse. Located in the stunning Glaslyn valley, the cottage is ideally located for guests wanting to explore both the rugged Snowdonia mountains and the beautiful sandy beaches of North Wales.

Turning off the Beddgelert to Prothmadog road, we continue up a private drive to the front door of Nanmor. On entering, we step left into the lounge. A large inglenook with the original oak lintel houses that all important log fire. Two leather sofas sit on a beautiful welsh slate floor looking out at the fantastic views to the front of the house.

The kitchen is back round to the right. Simple kitchen units with all the essentials included. An electric oven and hob, microwave, large fridge freezer and dishwasher are all there. A second spacious utility room houses a modern washing machine and tumble dryer. There’s also a convenient ground floor bathroom just of the utility room and access to a sunny rear courtyard.

From the kitchen we can continue through into the dining room. Be sure to duck your head, this entrance is quite low. The dining room beyond is a really nice space with white washed stonewalls and stable door leading to the courtyard to the side of the house.

We have to walk back through to the entrance hall to go upstairs. As with a lot of old houses the stairs have quite a narrow tread. Anyone with mobility difficulties should take care when descending and make good use of the sturdy handrail.

The bathroom is immediately to our right at the top of the stairs. It contains a nice white bathroom suite and shower cubicle on a wood laminate floor. Top of the stairs and turn left we come to a long corridor with three bedrooms leading off. One twin room and two double rooms. All the bedrooms have spectacular views over fields of sheep grazing and out towards the famous Glaslyn river.

  1. Our first time at the cottage, we found just what we needed for our holiday – peace and quiet. We loved the cottage tucked away as it was, everything we needed and a welcome pack on our arrival, a real home from home.

  2. The Pierce Family says:

    Absolutely stunning cottage in a perfect location. Everything we required was to hand and the cottage is incredibly comfortable and quaint. Lovely touch with the welcome hamper and the outside space was secure enough for our two labradors to roam. Wifi was great for our two teenage daughters (15 & 17) We were very sad to leave and will definitely return.

  3. Hilary says:

    We have just returned from a fantastic stay here. This was quite possibly the best rental we have had in the UK. The location was perfect for visiting everywhere yet was still remote and peaceful. We didn’t travel for more than 50 min and we went up to Caernarfon and even out as far as Nefyn which was beautiful. Booking tickets for the Ffestiniog railway and the Zip world activities was a breeze due to having Wi-fi at the house. We took some kitchen equipment with us after reading all the reviews but did not use anything as there was plenty to cope with holiday cooking. There are some good knives and some not so good. All the rooms were lovely with good storage too. The house was full of character and charm. It was a shame to leave and we were all sad to go home.

  4. Anne says:

    We enjoyed our visit to the cottage, the children (7 & 4 ) loved roaming around the garden and riding their bikes down the drive, safe and secure. The cottage met our needs very well, would benefit from a few more dishes for cooking in the oven, and serving. The owner came up promptly to change the padlock on the outside store that wouldn’t open which was much appreciated as we had climbing gear, bikes and the usual beach stuff. The only down side was the midges which were a real pain, never experienced them as bad and have been staying in and around the area for many years. If others staying at this time I suggest a good insect repellent spray and cream.

  5. Julia Powell says:

    Beautiful cottage nicely situated for exploring Snowdonia near main road, but far enough set back not to be obtrusive. Nice touches like bottles of wine and milk, bunch of flowers. Owner promptly responsive when contacted, felt looked after without being intruded upon. Very basic kitchen equipment, lacked things like scales and cheese grater, knives not the best to use, we brought our own.Lovely comfortable cosy cottage, I would definitely book it again to use as a base.

  6. Dixons says:

    A lovely cottage in a beautiful location. As mentioned by previous guests it would be helpful to have information about recycling etc – the bins at the end of the drive were both full when we arrived so nowhere to put our rubbish bags. More crockery, cutlery & sharp knives would be helpful, not really enough for 6 people.
    We did, though, love the cottage and sitting out in the evening watching the wildlife and birds was a real treat.

  7. Name *Liz says:

    We had a wonder stay in this peaceful cottage. Location was perfect and we found it so convenient for accessing all areas.

    The cottage is very well equipped and beds very comfortable although the lounge may be a little small if 6 adults were staying. Plenty of information leaflets in the cottage and the Tourist Information centre in Beddgelert is very helpful.

    This is the perfect cottage for anyone wanting to explore Snowdonia

  8. Simon Houghton says:

    Had a fantastic week in this wonderful cottage. Great location ideal for mountains and the coast. You know you’ve had a really good holiday when everyone’s a bit down on returning home (including the dogs!) Will definitely return, hopefully sooner rather than later.

  9. Beverley mountford says:

    Lovely stay in a beautiful location. Cottage was everything we wanted for the family and dogs. As mentioned before we also struggled with walking into beddgelert with the kids and dogs as there are no pavements and narrow roads, it did add to our fun trying to get the dogs over walls. More information is needed for townies and more info on recycling etc. All in all a wonderful stay.

  10. Jan Murray says:

    We had a great 2 weeks at the cottage, we loved the location and the overall feel of the place, the decor and the size of the rooms was excellent.
    The kitchen needs more equipment for 6 people and a set of sharp knives is essential. The cooker wasn’t great, two knobs fell off when we used the oven!
    It is perfect for dogs, so relaxing and safe, couldn’t be better with all the land around the property.
    We climbed Snowdon, attempted Moel Hebog a few times but never found the way to the top, loved the river and the walk into Beddgelert.
    We would stay again, it was beautiful despite the midges and ticks!

  11. Michelle Davies says:

    Beautiful, well furnished cottage in an idyllic rural setting. Ideal location for visiting Snowdonia and the surrounding area. Although there was an information pack, an extra to add would be where the cottage had fishing rights, as stated on the website, as we came with rods etc & where locally licences could have be purchased & costings.

  12. Paul says:

    Excellent cottage in a very good location and the weather was kind enough to let us enjoy the outside space and seating. Very handy for all the southern routes on Snowdon, walks from Beddgelert and for local tracks from the cottage toward Moel Hebog. The Sygun Copper mine is worth a visit. Saracens Head and Hebog in Beddgelert were good for eating out.
    We also would have liked more crockery and serving dishes and a full information pack would have been helpful. The directions were clear but it would be better if the website and directions gave “Dinas Ddu” rather than “Nanmor” as the cottage name as this appears on the gate and the OS map.
    Nevertheless, well worth a stay and we will return if we can. Thanks.
