About Mrs. Jackie Bamber

Our home was empty and unloved for 3 year's until we were lucky enough to come across it and have a vision of how it could be. It was actually the awe inspiring sight of a steam train puffing into Beddgelert viewed from the garden which sold it there and then! Being so close to such beautiful natural surroundings really inspired us to make sustainable and eco-friendly choices when renovating the property. Most of the work was undertaken by ourselves whilst living in our 42 year old VW camper with our family of 2 kids and 1 dog.

Mrs. Jackie Bamber purchased this house in 2009

Why Mrs. Jackie Bamber chose Beddgelert

Having camped in Beddgelert many times over the years we knew this was worthy of it's reputation as Snowdonia's most attractive village. Nestled in the middle of three mountain valleys beneath Snowdon, the village is sat in the middle of some of the best walking in the country.

One of the main advantages of Hafody (Welsh for Summer House) is it's quiet position away from the village center and the main road - parking can be very difficult in the peak of summer so having a driveway for 2 cars is most definitely a big advantage.

We worked hard on the renovation to ensure that the choices we made were good choices for the environment and in keeping with our spectacular natural surroundings, using natural and locally sourced products where possible. This included natural welsh slate, welsh wool, seagrass and oak flooring and recycled welsh slate roofing.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location!

Wildlife, stunning scenery, beautiful natural environmentl

Exhilarating walking, dramatic waterfalls, historic landscapes, hidden lakes, all on our doorstep.

A real joy

  • 5 of 5

Five of us spent a great, late April week at Beddgelert House in what turned out to be a wintry one, but it didn't matter. The cental heating system is really efficient, and we also made use of the very welcome and effective wood-burning stove.

Everything in the house is well organised and clean.

The views or the surrounding hills from the french windows are a bonus.

Every step of the way, the attention to detail, from booking stage to the house information folder, made the whole experience a very pleasant and easy-going one.

That, coupled with the location, on the edge of the village, not far from the steam railway station, pubs, village store, restaurant, and with bus routes around Snowdonia, all rounded out the holiday.

We were beaten back from the summit of Snowdon by the weather, but there were plenty of lower-level climbs that were satisfying.

We will return.

Absolutely Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Beddgelert House! We had another fantastic stay. The property is absolutely fantastic! Well equipped, super clean and extremely cosy! Especially once you get the log burner going which is a delight. Its in an amazing location in Beddgelert. The walks in this area are simply stunning.

The customer service that the owner provides is faultless, very detailed information is provided. As soon as you walk through the front door you immediately feel at home. Honestly couldn't have asked for more!

I would recommend this property to anyone without hesitation, its a wonderful place for a holiday or break. Thankyou Shaun and Jackie

Fabulous base for exploring Snowdonia

  • 5 of 5

We (a family of four, two girls 8 and 10) stayed at Beddgelert House for the February half term week. Jackie, the owner, was extremely helpful both before and after our stay and provided lots of really useful information to help us make the most of our holiday. The house itself is extremely well-appointed and the photos do genuinely reflect what you find. The log burner was great after a day out in the cold! Beddgelert itself is a great base for a holiday in this part of the country - picturesque with good pubs (especially the Tanronnen Inn). There are great local walks suitable for older children - e.g. to the remote Llyn Llywelyn or up Cwm Bychan past old copper mine workings. We also enjoyed some good trips out to Caernarfon, Anglesey and even 'Bounce Below'! We would heartily recommend this property and will be returning.

A perfect stay in beatiful surroundings.

  • 5 of 5

It is not that often that a holiday cottage is exactly as it is described or better but this was very much the case here. The cottage is spacious and clean with excellent facilities. The location is perfect for Snowdonia and there are some wonderful local walks. The owners recommended the Aberglaslyn Gorge walk which we also highly recommend. Beddgelert is delightful picturesque quiet village but it is not short on places to eat and drink. There is good range of restaurants whether the children just fancied a pizza at Glaslyn or we wanted to treat ourselves to something more relaxing at the River Garden. I would also recommend the Saracens Head after a good walk. In fact we did not have time to get around them all. If you are on holiday with your kids there is the award winning Glaslyn ice cream shop. The owner informed me there are 39 different flavours and despite a concerted effort from the kids we did well to try 21 in the week. Nothing like an awarding winning sorbet having climbed Snowdon.

The owners provided us with plenty of accurate and helpful information to ensure the process and stay was hassle free and we would happily recommend it to friends and family although only after we have made our booking for next year as I am sure it will get booked up.

Beautiful house in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We would recommend this property and village without hesitation. The house is beautiful, exactly as it looks in the photos; spotlessly clean, modern, tastefully decorated and has all the essentials as well as many extras not normally provided with a holiday rental. Hafodty is situated close to the lovely village of Beddgelert with walks accessible straight from the house and the Welsh Highland Railway just a minute's walk from the garden, where you can take a step back in time for a relaxing steam train ride to Caernarvon or Porthmadog. Beddgelert is a beautiful village with several good choices of eating places, together with a well stocked village store and a handful of craft/antique/gallery shops. Our favourites to eat were the Tanronnen Inn and the Prince Llewellyn, and the cafe also had great food. Hafodty and Beddgelert are ideally situated for Snowdon itself (we were lazy and took the train), the coastal towns of Caernarvon and Porthmadog, and my personal favourite, the rather wacky but beautiful Portmeirion gardens. Obviously there are walks galore and we took the stunning walk along the Aberglaslyn Pass and up into the mountains (not suitable for the less sure-footed). We were lucky to have a week of sun with not one spot of rain so everything was great but there is plenty to see and do even in less fine weather. The owner of the house offered superb, efficient and informative communication throughout and was a pleasure to deal with, also offering much useful information on the area, both in advance by email and left in the house. Together with the welcome coffee, biscuits, and milk in the fridge, we were made to feel very welcome and can honestly say we were very reluctant to leave; we hope to return one day.

beautiful clean home from home

  • 5 of 5

we arrived to find milk and biscuits waiting for us. the house was immaculate with plenty of room for 5 of us. the property was just as it looked on the web site and very well ordered and kept. there was plenty of information regarding how to use the household equipment and also what was on offer in the village such as what to do and where to eat. there was also opportunity for guests to write their own recommendations for other guests. for train fans, the garden is situated thirty seconds from the Welsh Highland Railway and my husband and son both enjoyed taking their coffee and standing on the platform watching the trains! we were able to ride on the railway although it is quite expensive but for a treat and for the stunning views it is worth it. the booking procedure and subsequent e-mail information from the owner has been first class and nothing was too much trouble. we are hoping to stay at the house again next year and would recommend it to anyone.

Some of the best MTB trails in the UK are nearby including the Marin and Penmancho centers and the newly opened Antur Stiniog in Blaenau Ffestiniog, offering super-fast rollers, drops and rock features with uplift facility.

Snowdon Ranger, Rhyd Ddu and Watkin paths for Snowdon are within walking distance of the village or a regular Sherpa Bus Service links to all the paths (often open top in summer). You can also link to Rhyd Ddu or Snowdon Ranger via steam train!
