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

Pet FriendlyNear PubReal Fire

With views over 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.

Floor Plans




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.

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.

A great stay in a wonderfully positioned house.

We had the best stay at Bron Eifion. The house is lovely with all the essentials and welcoming added touches. Our dog loved the enclosed garden. The pub just along the road offers great food and drinks. We walked the Rhyd Ddu path up Snowdon which starts just along the road from the house. We will definitely look to come back. Thank you for your hospitality.

‘Bron-Eifion’ we loved you. From the moment we stepped on to the verandah and through your front door with a glance back across to the foothills of Snowden we were smitten.

Once inside you welcomed us by the thoughtfullness of your gift of a hamper- the nicest yet of any we have found on arrivals elsewhere, so well thought out with something for all and each of us – thank you.

Your interiors are furnished beautifully with much thought, care and taste, a delight to be in.
Your gardens lead us to lovely walks, from the back in to Rhdd-Ddu’s forest which my dog Talitha loved and onwards to lakes and adventures. Your front leading us out to mesmerising mountains, lakes, forests, castles, coastlines, dolphins (Llyn peninsula) and so much more, much still to be and hoped to be explored!

Your verandah gives a place for quiet contemplation in the beauty of the surroundings only occasionally interrupted, and charmingly so, by the whistle of and heralding of the impending arrival of the Welsh Highland steam railway passing by in the foothills opposite – a true delight to hear and watch.

Your shower invigorating after a night undisturbed from the comfiest of beds and linen. Your bath soothing tired muscles after memorable hours spent walking, talking and exploring, leading to new memories: My grown son, a seasoned walker, making his much anticipated and eagerly awaited first summit of Snowdon – up the Rhyd-Ddu path and back down in just shy of three and three quarter hours as
the birds broke their dawn chorus and whilst the rest of us still slumbered unaware of the magnificent beauty he was gazing out over, the challenge he was taking on and conquering and the like-minded early a.m souls he was meeting and greeting. So proud of him!

Your lovely owners Jane and John both obviously talented, thoughtful and considerate kindly offering, if we wished, the use of their farm land for us to explore and enjoy in our own ways. Offering information and advice if we needed it and interesting conversation some of which regarding John’s hydro-electric power which my husband enjoyed hearing about. Jane clearly having the wonderful eye for decorating, furnishing and detail and the ‘touches’ that make the difference.

Your pubs, restaurants and cafes ( mentioned by previous guests) that kept us happily well fed and watered (!) Cwellyn Arms! with a welcome from friendly staff.

All in all you have given us new memories to take away and be able to look back on with the hope of adding further to and brought back old memories, memories of my much loved late father who was Welsh and who had lived near by with my mother many many years ago, and who at that time had been a custodian of nearby Caernarfon Castle – all memories to cherish. Thank you Bron-Eifion, Jane, John and Dioni.

Rowena, Matt & John
