You’ll find it in the village of Rhyd Ddu at the foot of Cymru’s highest peak. If you’re familiar with Snowdonia you might know that the village has given its name to one of the nicest routes up Snowdon (the same route used to be called the Beddgelert Path). Walk to the top of the mountain straight out of your back door.

This is a traditional quarryman’s cottage (Rhyd Ddu is a 19th century slate quarry village) and so the accommodation is cosy and comfortable, which has been totally refurbished to a high standard. A woodburning stove and exposed beams give the living room plenty of character, and a galley kitchen comes equipped with washing machine, electric hob, oven and fridge freezer.

The cottage sleeps up to three people in one double and one single bedroom. There is a shared bathroom with bath and shower attachment – all really beautifully presented.

The Rhyd Ddu Path (there is a private gate from the cottage) is probably one of the least touristy routes to the top of Snowdon, and so this cute little cottage is a great choice for keen walkers and explorers who like to stray a little off the beaten track. It’s also a great location if you’d like to tackle Moel Hebog, Yr Aran or the Nantlle Ridge.

The Welsh Highland Railway stops at the station in the village and will huff and puff you to Caernarfon in one direction and Porthmadog in the other. Whatever you do to work up your appetite, there is a lovely tea room for your morning coffee or afternoon tea and cake right opposite the cottage, packed lunches are also available by arrangement..

Rhyd Ddu is close to some of Snowdonia’s nicest towns and villages including Beddgelert, Betws-y-Coed and Llanberis. Stand out attractions include Zip World, Surf Snowdonia, Antur Stiniog downhill mountain biking and The Slate Caverns at Llechwedd – home to a deep mine tour, Zip Caverns and Bounce Below.

More traditional attractions include Caernarfon awe-inspiring 13th century fortress and the Italianate village of Portmeirion – home to the popular Festival No. 6.  Rhyd Ddu is a great base for exploring Snowdonia.

    Lovely, immaculate, comfortable and well stocked cottage in a fabulous position for climbing Snowdon and a really good pub just over the road. Thankyou so much for giving us such a wonderful break.

  2. Chris Atkinson says:

    Really enjoyed our stay in September this year in this lovely cottage. Ideal located for many activities with a very nice pub to relax in at the end of the day and take the views up to the summit of Snowdon.
    Cottage is well equipped with everything we needed for our stay, and nice to relax in the snug main room. Couldn’t recommend highly enough and will visit again in the future.

  3. Mannie says:

    Beautiful cosy cottage in a perfect location! The owner has been very kind and accommodating with the Covid-19 situation. Will definitely be recommending the cottage to friends and family and would not hesitate to go back. The cottage was spotlessly clean and it was very clear that every safety measure has been taken in line with Covid-19 procedures. Cannot wait to come back again!
