Views over Snowdon and the Welsh Highland Railway | Bron-Eifion

With views over Snowdon and the welsh highland railway Bron-Eifion is the quintessential Snowdonia cottage. Located right at the foot of the tallest peak in England and Wales, the cottage shares the valley with the Welsh Highland Steam Railway as it pushes its way from Beddgelert to the south up to Rhyd Ddu station and then on to Caernarfon in the north.

But I should talk about the cottage first. It’s a semi detached cottage on the outskirts of Rhyd Ddu in the heart of Snowdonia. It’s been immaculately decorated and furnished by Jane, the owner and her taste and attention to detail are evident throughout the property.

Downstairs the cosy lounge opens out onto the adjoining and spacious dining room. A log fire and tasteful fixtures and fitting ensure that this living space is comfortable and welcoming.

A traditional and well-equipped country kitchen is located to the rear of the cottage. Cream fitted units including a dishwasher and fridge are topped by a beach block worktop. A washing machine and tumble dryer are available in the utility room accessed via the small rear courtyard.

Three bedrooms upstairs. Both the large king sized bedroom and the smaller single bedroom enjoy panoramic views towards Snowdon. The third twin bedroom over looks the garden to the rear of the property. Again, all the bedding and soft furnishings are beautifully chosen and create a sense of elegant sophistication. Finally the large bathroom accommodates a pastle painted vanity unit and a large bath with shower over.

    Just back from one of my best holidays ever at the foot of Snowdon. Bron Eifion was the perfect base for our busy and exercise filled week (went up Snowdon twice!! ) and we slept like babies every night in the very comfy double bed. Don’t be put off by the on-street parking – it’s absolutely worth it. Great local pub, just wonderful views and such friendly people (& sheep!!). Planning to return!!

    What a beautiful cottage in a stunning location. Pub next door & Snowdon on the doorstep! The cottage was also sparklingly clean!

    Very comfortable cottage on the quiet side of Snowdon.
    House must have one of the best views of any holiday cottage and watching the view change with the weather from the bench in front was a constant pleasure. We loved being away from the crowds who even on hot sunny summer Sunday don’t seem to know about the stunning west side of Snowdon. Great walks from the door. Only downside is on street parking….but that was minor. Owners could not have been more helpful.
