Views over Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) and the Welsh Highland Railway | Bron-Eifion

Dog FriendlyNear PubNear SnowdonReal Fire

With views over Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) and the Welsh Highland Railway, Bron-Eifion is the quintessential Eryri (Snowdonia) cottage. Located right at the foot of the tallest peak in 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 Eryri. 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 Yr Wyddfa. 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 pastel painted vanity unit and a large bath with shower over.

Outside a small courtyard area leads onto a larger enclosed garden area with raised decking area and storage shed. The views have to be seen to be believed. This is the Eryri of story books and postcards. And it’s right on your doorstep.

Truly a walker’s paradise, keen ramblers need never step back into the car as miles and miles of footpaths are accessible right from your doorstep including the famous Rhyd Ddu Path leading to the summit of Yr Wyddfa. There’s also a local pub 200m down the road, so again there’s really no need to pick up those car keys during your stay.

And you don’t have to be a train fanatic to appreciate the brave little steam locomotives as they fight their way up the valley opposite the cottage. Pulling their load of enthusiastic holidaymakers through some of the most beautiful and rugged scenery in the UK.

All the other activities associated with North Wales are within easy reach including fishing, horse riding, mountain biking and rock climbing. Beddgelert, a picturesque and popular tourist village is 5 minutes to the south of the cottage while the larger town of Caernarfon is 15 minutes to the north.

First impression on arriving was Wow! The view was stunning, for us the house was to near the road with a 14 month old puppy. On entering the house we felt at home straight away, nicely decorated, homely, and everything was provided for us to make our stay comfortable.
Thank you for letting us stay in Bron-Eifion, we had an amazing three days and didnt want to leave, we will be booking again next year.

Thank you once again

Very nice location!
Spacious house.
Friendly owners.
We had a nice stay.


We had a lovely stay at the cottage. It’s a quirky and quaint place with stunning views just outside your front door. We took the Rhyd Ddu path up Snowdon and did a lovely walk to Beddgelert – both walks start really close to the house. there was a lovely welcome basket and they were kind enough to put out a cot bed and high chair for our little one (on our request). Overall, we had a lovely stay and would certainly love to return to Bron Eifion.


Lovely cozy cottage in the most stunning surroundings. A wonderful place for a restful break away. We can’t wait to go back.


We had the most wonderful stay at the cottage. Its positioning at the foot of Snowdon is unmatched by any other place we have stayed in before. We enjoyed the breathtaking views each time we looked out the window and when sitting in the garden eating breakfast. The cottage is beautifully furnished and is very practical. We found all the cooking equipment we needed for preparing our meals. The beds were comfy and the whole place was very clean. We were greeted with a complementary basket of goodies on arrival – thank you! The holiday company looking after the property were great at communication throughout our stay and provided us with a link to what to do in the area. We had a wonderful rest enjoying God’s creation and having a wonderful place to stay in

Bron Eifion is a beautiful, well equipped cottage in a stunning location. It was the perfect base to explore North Wales, and of course to climb Snowdon. We followed the owner’s recommendation and took the Snowdon Ranger’s Path, which gave the most fantastic views.

We had a fabulous stay at this gorgeous property. The house is lovely with everything you could need, definitely a home from home. The view from the house is beautiful and in a great location for walking and for going off and visiting other areas. We would definitely recommend a visit and will hopefully be back in the future.

A real home from home cottage, we stayed in July during the heatwave and it was perfect! Remained cool whilst it was boiling outside!! It was an extremely dog/child friendly and the beds were amazingly comfy for a holiday cottage! It was in a great central location for mountain walking, zip world and beach trips to Anglesey! I don’t think you could beat the view whilst sitting on the bench at the front of the house, which overlooks Snowdon – idyllic!!

We had a fantastic week at Bron Eifion! It’s such a gorgeous house, really nicely decorated, plus we loved the garden and the immediate access into the woods which was great for dog walks. Other things we liked would be the hot, powerful shower, the comfortable beds, and the baby-friendly touches (high-chair, travel cot, cutlery). Also the views were lovely, and the next door neighbours very friendly. Would definitely return if in the area again.


The most amazing few days away in the most beautiful cottage. Perfect location, the interior was just lovely, the hosts have really looked after this cottage and it shows. Cute little welcome basket on arrival and views that we would never get bored of. We are already looking at dates to come back!
