Cottage & Cabin in Beddgelert, Snowdonia National Park, North Wales - Close To The Village Of Beddgelert, With Forest Walking/ Cycling Paths aplenty

Short (3+ night) breaks may also be also available if not already booked. The cottage is aimed at couples, though an extra blow up bed can be provided for a smaller youngster, whilst the cabin is aimed at families with beds for 4 and space on a couch if needed. If you want to sit inside and look at the views, then choose the cabin. The cottage walls are 4ft thick and windows small (building 500 years old) so dont have the views from inside, but there are plenty of seating areas with benches you can use to take in the fabulous vistas whilst you enjoy a meal al fresco. We are Dog friendly and and only charge £5/night/dog (sometimes even this is waived, depending on our cleaners). We are located high in Beddgelert Forest just off the easy walking Lôn Gwyrfai path, & it is the perfect location to access all that Snowdonia National Park has to offer. There are numerous beautiful mountain walks and cycle trails right from the door. You can wake up, open the curtains, and be looking straight at the changing light and moods of Mt Snowdon and the farmland of the valley foothills (Cottage views limited). On a clear day you can see 25 miles down the Aber Glaslyn Valley, to the Rhinogs and Cadair Idris, and 12 miles to the North into the Carneddau range. The views are a key feature of the cabin - and you can watch the Welsh Highland Railway trains snake up through the forest on their way to Rhyd Ddu, or even watch the Snowdon Mountain Railway wind its way up to the summit from just above halfway station. A wildlife watchers dream with outlooks over field and forest to the mountains beyond. (You might even catch sight of a pine martin). There are several patios and picnic tables located in various places on the property for you to take full advantage of the different vistas. We also have a charming rural art and photography gallery in our barn for you to peruse should you wish to do so. We are only 1.5 miles from the beautiful village of Beddgelert where there are numerous pubs and restaurants, local shop with post office and fantastic ice cream shop. Footpaths to the top of Mount Snowdon are a couple of miles away, and dog friendly beaches just 12 miles. We feel that dogs should enjoy their holidays as well as the owners, and know that they may not always stay on the floor even when asked to do so, so we provide furniture and bed covers should you wish to snuggle up with your best friend.

                                                                  Great location, but without running water!

                                                                  Lovely cabin in a great location with breath taking views of Snowdon. Unfortunately there was no running water during our stay which meant no flushing toilet and no hot running water and no shower to use so we decided to stay just the 2 nights as opposed to the 5 nights booked. This was a real shame and although the owner tried his hardest, we simply had enough of roughing it and decided to return to the comfort of our own home.

My offer of a free stay still stands so long as you contact me direct, and I remain sorry I was unable to address the issues with everywhere shut for xmas and new year. When you are this remote, stuff happens and you have to improvise and make stuff - not like towns and cities where you can just go buy what you need, or, you go rural, turn back the clock a few years, and use the bucket to collect from the gravity tap in the pumproom, as advised. All the best - hope to see you again.

                                                                  Gorgeous, amazing and wow

Yet again Sue and Greame were fabulous hosts and friends now, we can't wait to see you again next year x

The location is amazing and as hikers we loved being able to just step out the door to go for wonderful hikes. The village of Beddgelert is charming and has wonderful restaurants and shops. The cottage is very comfortable and we appreciated the lovely welcoming basket. Sue and Graeme were wonderful hosts, extremely helpful. This place is worth it!

                                                                  We had a wonderful stay at the cabin with our 2 children and 2 dogs. The cabin had everything we needed for our week. The views are incredible and we found we completely relaxed during the stay. Sue and Graeme were the perfect hosts and were on hand to answer any questions. We will definitely book again and have told many people about this gem of place in such a beautiful part of Wales.

                                                                  Firstly graeme and Sue made us so welcome even leaving us a welcome pack including the essentials of bread milk eggs jam butter tea coffee etc which was much appreciated after a long drive. The cottage was even nicer than the photo. Which had plenty of room for 2 and our dog. We found it was situated perfectly as it's up in the forest so very peaceful but also close enough to the village of Beddgelert, it's a great central base for exploring north Wales. Graeme also gave great advice about places to visit (to which you must try the velocity zip wire). Overall by the end of the week we felt so relaxed and didn't want to go back to the rat race. Absolutely loved it, many thanks graeme and Sue

Sue, Graeme and Jess made us feel so welcome, what lovely people you are and thanks for the welcome pack. Our dogs Sam and Bear loved it and had a wonderful time to, we will definitely be back next year, if not this one. I didn't want to leave, I would recommend anyone to go and stay with them, fantastic, missing it already. Thanks and see you soon Penny & Nick Clifford
