About Lynn Price
I live on the side of Moel Hebog overlooking the village of Beddgelert along with my dog Joe. I moved here from Manchester 10 years ago and have never looked back. We enjoy everything the area has to offer, from forest and lakeside walks to strolls on the nearby beach.
Lynn Price purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Lynn Price chose Beddgelert
Although I live slightly away from the village I enjoy all the amenities there and when Gwynfa went up for sale I saw the potential to extend it and make it into a home. I decided to let it out until I am ready to move into myself.

Perfect Cottage in Beautiful Beddgelert
Lyn was the perfect host. She was there to meet us. The cottage is very well equipped and she ensured that all the necessities of bed linen, towels and even food , is there to start a holiday without delay or any worries. The cottage is in a great location in the centre of the village and backing on to the beautiful river. We were stupid enough to leave our home keys behind when we left and Lyn made sure they were sent back to us asap. Great service. You can but love this place.
Wonderful stay in Beddgelert
Had a wonderful weekend in Beddgelert, the cottage was immaculate, beautifully decorated and really well equipped, had everything we needed! The hosts were really friendly and helpful throughout the booking and stay, we even made friends with the lovely next door neighbour! Beddgelert is a beautiful little place with some lovely pubs and places to eat, highly recommended Hebog for Sunday lunch, will definitely return!
Lovely position to walk into Beddgelert. The house was lovely and clean. Everything there you could want. Will return.
We had a fantastic time, yet again, at Gwynfa. The cottage is beautiful, comfortable and so well equipped- ideal for our needs. Having supper on the patio overlooking the river was peaceful and a delight.
The location is excellent for exploring all the area round about - Snowdon, Llanberis, Betwys y coed, Capel Curig. It was lovely to come back each evening to rest and recuperate.
An excellent property.
Lynn was very welcoming and helpful on arrival. The cottage was very well equipped and we had everything that we needed. Appreciated the little touches - all the things that are annoyingly absent in some holiday accommodation were in place - kitchen roll, washing up sponges etc, tea towels, good selection of pans, hairdryers, soap, toilet rolls. Even a pint of milk for that allimportant cup of tea on arrival! Good location. Comfortable. A great place to stay.
Thank you for your great review and I'm so pleased you found everything you needed. Having spent most of my holidays in self-catering I have tried to make sure that Gwynfa has all those things that I would want if I were staying. Maybe see you again at some point in the future.
I stayed 3 nights in Gwynfa with my family to celebrate my birthday. The cottage was everything I had hoped it would be. It’s in a great location with a terrace overlooking the River Glaslyn. It was much bigger than it looks from the outside with plenty of room for 6 people. It’s well equipped and spotlessly clean. Lynn met us on arrival and made us feel very welcome. There were storecupbard basics in the kitchen and fresh milk in the fridge. There were also doggy treats provided for our springer. Lynn’s attention to detail is excellent, I would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage to anyone and would love to return.
