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

Pet FriendlyNear PubNear SnowdonReal Fire

With views over Yr Wyddfa (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 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 Snowdonia 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 Snowdon. 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.

Everything was great, apart from the lack of hot water, after a day of miles of walking a nice hit soak was needed, but unfortunately the house had a timer on the hot water system and I was unable to over ride it. So we had to use the electric shower with low pressure. I completely understand that the home owner would like to save on the bills etc but every single electric radiator was on which would be more expensive to run which I’m didn’t get.

But location and other facilities were great

Lovely homely and comfortable cottage in an absolutely stunning location with a good pub just down the road. What more could you ask for! We stayed for a week with great weather and didn’t have enough time to do all we wanted. The views from the porch and deck were incredible, could just sit and look for hours! Also, don’t worry about parking on the road.

We had a fabulous 3 days at Bron Eifion; with spectacular views and peaceful walks right from the front door, it was an ideal location no matter the weather.
The property was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We loved sitting on the front bench in the evening to watch Snowdon disappear into the clouds. Our 5 year old loved the woods at the back and watching the steam train pass each day.
Thank you for a well needed rest!

Jane Brady

We stayed at Bron Efion for 4 nights. It was a lovely clean cottage with magnificent views over Snowdon. It was ideal base for us as we visited a view places nearby during our time there. We would also highly recommend the Ty Mawr tea rooms in the village, amazing pancakes 🥞
Would definitely consider booking again

Diolch yn fawr Bron Eifion.

Lleoliad delfrydol ar droed y Wyddfa. Pentref tawel. Golygfeydd bendigedig o’r tŷ. Digon o lwybrau cerdded o fewn tafliad carreg o’r drws.

Tŷ glan a chyfforddus iawn.

Piti bod rhaid parcio ar y lôn, ac yn anffodus roedd nyth gwenyn a dan y bwrdd a chadeiriau wrth ochr y tŷ.

Ond, yn sicr buaswn yn argymell arhosiad yma i unrhyw un. Gwyliau gwych. Diolch.

This beautiful cottage is in an ideal location for walking and visiting local places of interest. We stayed for 3 nights, slept well in the comfortable bed and wouldn’t tire of the view. There is a bench in the front garden, perfect for starting and ending the day in the peace and fresh air. You do need to park on the road but as a previous reviewer states, do not let this put you off.

We enjoyed every minute of our stay at Bron-Eifion! The owners are very friendly and hospitable and made us feel extremely welcome. The cottage is beautifully furnished and cosy and we just could not get enough of the views of Snowdon from the bench at the front of the cottage. What a delight it was to be able to walk up Snowdon and do many other lovely walks from the doorstep. It was also great to have both the pub and the tearoom just a few metres down the road where everyone was very welcoming. We will definitely be back for a second stay!

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.
