Holiday Cottage in Beddgelert Near Snowdon | Gilfach-Y-Nant

Near PubNear SnowdonReal Fire

Gilfach-Y-Nant is a three bedroom holiday cottage in Beddgelert near Snowdon. On the banks of the river Glaslyn, the cottage offers the perfect location for guests wanting to explore this popular picture postcard village and the surrounding mountains.

The cottage itself is the end property on a small row of terraced houses just on the edge of the village with off road parking for 2 cars. Although a fairly recent build, the cottage is constructed with traditional stonewalls under a slate roof, synonymous with this part of Snowdonia.

A spacious well-equipped kitchen to the rear of the house overlooks a tranquil enclosed back garden which runs right down to the banks of the river. Inside, sleek white units house a fridge, freezer and dishwasher as well as a modern fan oven with electric hob. A circular dining table sits under a wall mounted digital tv at the far end of the room.

From here we can pass through into the lounge via a small dining area. A second circular dining table in this space is suitable for more formal dining perhaps. The adjoining lounge comes complete with a wonderful log burner, perfect for warming your toes after a long walk in the mountains. Facing the fire, two comfortable leather sofas and matching armchair sit on a sumptuous cream carpet.

The stairway leads us up to the first floor landing. Three bedrooms in total, one twin room and two double rooms. Both the small double and twin room look out onto the river at the rear of the cottage. The larger master bedroom is to the front of the house as is the bathroom. The bathroom houses a shower over bath arrangement as well as wc and washbasin. Plenty of wardrobe space in each of the bedrooms and high quality beds and linen as you expect.

Beddgelert is a bustling little village hidden away among the tall peaks of Snowdonia. Popular with locals and tourists alike it boasts a lovely selection of pubs, restaurants and tearooms as well as the magnificent Glaslyn Ice-cream Parlour. (Seriously, don't leave without trying the Ice-cream!)

There are lots of walks straight from the village. Snowdon itself could be attempted from the door of the cottage but less experienced walkers might prefer to drive the 3 miles up to Pen Y Pass to give themselves a head start. A less strenuous but equally picturesque route to consider is the 'Lon Gwyrfai' path which leads up to Rhyd Ddu on Snowdon's eastern slopes. This newly opened path can be combined with the Welsh Highland Steam railway to give you a circular route back down to Beddgelert.

Beics Beddgelert will happily rent you some mountain bikes if you want to explore the miles of green cycle way and bridle paths that criss-cross this area. No, there isn't anywhere flat to cycle. And the mountain biking centres at Antur Stiniog and Coed Y Brenin will exhaust even the most enthusiastic and experienced cyclist.

Watersports is also a big draw for a lot of our guests. Kayaking down the fast flowing Afon Glaslyn will take you right past the Gilfach Y Nant whilst the lakes of Llyn Dinas and Llyn Gwynant nearby are a haven of peace and tranquility even during the busy summer months.

We have just returned from a wonderful week in Wales, staying in Gilfach Y Nant. There were 5 of us aged 17 upwards. The house is situated on the edge of Beddgelert, a truly beautiful village in the heart of a stunning area with loads to do. The house is spotless, has enough space to not be on top of each other and is very comfortable. The garden has the perfect patio with views to die for and we spent most of our time at the house out there (weather very obliging for most of the week). A lovely wee basket of local goodies was waiting for us in the kitchen and we happily scoffed all of it over the week. Thank you! We had no need of the lovely fire but can imagine that it is toasty warm at other times of the year and there are basic starter supplies included.
If I had any minor niggles it would be a lack of some basics in the cupboards. It’s rare for there not to be things like salt + pepper, sugar or oil left in the cupboard (even during covid times everywhere else we’ve been has had these available). Would also have appreciated a bread bin to keep work surfaces tidy and 6 cups, 6 knives and 5 bowls for a family meant had to be on top of the washing up. All very minor though and would happily recommend the house to anyone and would very much enjoy returning ourselves in the future. So glad to have found this place and have made some very happy memories.

This was our 4th stay at this cottage, we love being based in Beddgelert it is a wonderful village and love being able to do many walk/hikes straight from the cottage. Many areas of north Wales that we enjoy visiting are only around 30-45 mins drive from the village so this is ideal for us.
As always the cottage is immaculately presented and has everything you need.
We will be returning as soon as we can

Another fine stay, great weather combined with beautiful surroundings. We kept ourselves busy with long walks up mountains, drinks in local taverns and relaxing in this superbly comfortable and brilliantly-located cottage

We’ve just come back from a week in Beddgelert staying in Gilfach-Y-Nant. The cottage is in a fantastic position being close to town but far enough out to avoid the crowds when it’s busy – it’s only a 2-3 minute walk to the centre.
The garden is a lovely place to catch the sun and sit above the river having a drink or just relaxing; the view up the hill at the back of the property is just beautiful.
Inside there is plenty of room and the kitchen is really well supplied. The beds are really comfortable and the bathroom is clean and spacious.
We’d throughly recommend staying here and the hosts are very helpful if you need anything.

What a lovely surprise to arrive at Gilfach-y-Nant cottage in the stunning setting of Beddgelert. We really enjoyed the riverside eating area in the garden and found the cottage beautifully clean, very comfortable and well equipped. Beddgelert is a great centre to explore Snowdonia from and there were so many fabulous walks around the village that you didn’t really need to use the car.
The off road parking was good to have although a little difficult to find. Fortunately a neighbour was able to show us where it was so maybe some clearer instructions would be helpful. Apart from that we would love to return again to Gilfach-y-Nant as we enjoyed it so much. Thank you

Lovely, relaxing week in this very comfortable and well equipped cottage. It is in a beautiful setting with the river at the bottom of the garden and Beddgelert is a great location for a holiday with several stunning beaches, Anglesey and of course Snowdonia all within 30 minutes drive.

We really enjoyed our stay at Cwn Y Gwynant and found the cottage to be comfortable, clean and well placed. The outdoor seating area by the river was lovely and the beds were very comfy. We weren’t sure which the allocated parking spaces were but found parking on the road easy.

Lovely cottage, everything you need, especially In the kitchen. Absolutely loved the location re the river and little village. We arrived with 3 small children so did travel out to find something to do due to the weather. We went to Barmouth, Anglesey and LLanberis On the train. In the summer It would be good sitting outside and the children could make use of the garden. Would go back. Never knew beddgelert was named after the dog named Gelert (children listened to the story with interest). I didn’t realise the grave existed else would have taken them to see it.

This was our second stay this year in this wonderful cottage, having enjoyed ourselves so much in the summer we came back for an extra week to see the autumn colours. We love coming up to north Wales every year for the walks, hikes and spectacular scenery and Beddgelert is one of our favourite villages so to be based there is fantastic (we have already booked for next summer!!) The cottage is well presented, clean and tidy, the kitchen has everything you could need for self catering although there are plenty of places to eat out in the area. The only thing I would like to suggest to the owners is maybe some coat hooks and a shoe tidy/shelf in the kitchen, although there are coat hooks by the front door we mainly used the kitchen door and after hiking/walking on some damp/muddy days would have been nice to keep all the coats, walking boots etc together in the kitchen rather than by the front door as this opens straight into the lounge…..but this is a small niggle and in no way detracts from the cottage.
Already counting the months/days till we are back

A very homely and well equipped cottage in a beautiful picture postcard village. Well positioned to see Snowdonia and the north and south coasts of the lleyn peninsula. Appreciated the Bara Brith,waffles, milk and tea bags. A very relaxing and comfortable stay.Highly recommended.
