Pet FriendlyHot TubNear Pub

This modern holiday cottage in the heart of Beddgelert comes with stunning mountain views and relaxing hot tub. Ideal for a happy family holiday, or a relaxing break with friends, the cottage has a bright sociable layout, and sleeps up to eight guests in four bedrooms.

You’ll find Oberon at the heart of one of Snowdonia’s prettiest mountain villages - Beddgelert. Just a short hop skip and a jump to the local pubs, restaurants, and village stores, this cottage is ideal if you like to be able to explore direct from your front door.

Beddgelert is a gorgeous stone-built Snowdonia village. At the confluence of the Afon Colwyn and the Afon Glaslyn, it is bordered by dramatic mountain landscapes. With Aberglaslyn Pass to the south, Nant Gwynant to the east, and Yr Wyddfa / Snowdon just a few miles to the north, it is the ideal base for taking on some classic North Wales hikes and walks.

The village is full of history and character. It takes its name from Gelert, the faithful hound of 13th century Welsh king Llywelyn the Great. You can take a stroll along the river in the village to see his grave and read more about how the village came to be named after him.

But first of all, let’s get back to the cottage. This modern holiday cottage in the heart of Beddgelert is single-storey accommodation, so ideal if you are travelling with anyone who prefers not to do stairs. It’s actually a little stunner of a place, which seems much bigger inside than it appears from the exterior.

Recently renovated to a very high standard, it is beautifully presented throughout. The main living area is a lovely open-plan space. The contemporary kitchen is smart and glossy, with a double electric oven and grill, and a centrepiece kitchen island incorporating a practical induction hob. There is a washing machine and separate dryer, plenty of storage space, and a large fridge freezer, so plenty of room for your holiday food and drinks.

Also in the kitchen, you’ll find convenient breakfast-bar seating (also an ideal place to park your spud peeler in chief / sous-chef / drinks topper-upper ) and a separate large dining table for sit down meals. A gorgeously comfortable ‘L’ shaped sofa in the sitting room area of this space is the perfect place to sink into when you’re ready to relax.

There is a second very attractive living space in a large conservatory just beyond the kitchen, which really adds to the space. There are two more sofas in here, and a lovely view of the garden with some big chunky mountain landscapes beyond. Patio doors open out into a small but lovely garden and patio terrace and hot tub - ideal for al fresco dinners and drinks.

There are four generous sized bedrooms; two kingsize ensuites, and two comfortable twin rooms. The bathrooms at this modern holiday cottage in the heart of Beddgelert deserve a special mention - they are all just fab. In addition to the ensuites, there is a lovely family bathroom with a large walk-in shower and separate bath.

You’ll find this modern holiday cottage in the heart of Beddgelert, a beautiful mountain village in the heart of Snowdonia. Beddgelert is a gorgeous stone-built Snowdonia village. At the confluence of the Afon Colwyn and the Afon Glaslyn, it is bordered by dramatic mountain landscapes.

With Aberglaslyn Pass to the south, Nant Gwynant to the east, and Snowdon just a few miles to the north, Beddgelert is the ideal base for taking on some classic North Wales hikes. It’s also a great place to get out on your bike - nearby Beddgelert Forest is a huge woodland treasure trove of walking and cycling routes, including the Lôn Gwyrfai trail.

Beddgelert is also a great place to potter about, and maybe even take a picnic to enjoy on the riverbank. There are some great walks around the village, and ample opportunities for post-ramble refreshments. The local pubs are excellent.

If you are into adventure and the outdoors, you could not be better placed to enjoy a multitude of activities on offer in Snowdonia – gorge walking, climbing, walking, kayaking, white water rafting, canyoning, SUP etc are all readily available throughout the area from a number of different activity providers. Or you could just pull on your walking boots and head out of the front door. Epic days out don’t have to cost much around here.

You are just a couple of miles from the start point for one of the best routes up Yr Wyddfa – or Snowdon, the Rhyd Ddu Path (pronounced ‘rheed-thee). This is probably one of the least touristy ways up the great mountain, and offers some of the best views. Beddgelert’s own mountain is Moel Hebog - a worthy day of walking that will reward you with superb 360 degree views of Snowdonia, Snowdonia, and the North Wales Coast.

The lovely harbour town of Porthmadog is around 8 miles away from this modern holiday cottage in the heart of Beddgelert. The harbour has a good selection of restaurants and cafés, and if you’re a fan of real ales look out for the Purple Moose brewery too. Porthmadog is also home to what will be your closest large supermarket (there’s a large Tesco on the High Street).

From Porthmadog, a 20-minute walk will get you to the seaside village of Borth-y-Gest, where you’ll find attractive sandy beaches and a couple of traditional style cafés. The wonderfully eccentric Portmeirion Village is a short distance from Porthmadog and another great place to spend a day.

You can jump on the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland steam railways at Porthmadog for a magical ride through Snowdonia. The railways run a regular service throughout the year – they are a great way to explore the landscapes, and a good rainy day alternative to walking. Listen out for the whistles of the West Highland steam trains as they pass by just behind your cottage - they stop at Beddgelert Station in the centre of the village.

Beach lovers should check out the sandy dunes at Harlech, which also has a fantastic medieval castle. In fact, if it’s castles you’re after, you’re literally surrounded by them. Caernarfon, Dolbadarn and Criccieth are also well worth a visit.

Blaenau Ffestiniog is a 30 minute drive away, with a multitude of grown up adventures including Zip World Titan, Zip Caverns, Bounce Below, Antur Stiniog downhill mountain biking, The Deep Mine Tour and Quarry Explorer 4x4 trucks. Adventure Parc Snowdonia is a similar distance away, and worth a visit for its spectacular world-first surfable waves as well as a host of other indoor and outdoor adventures.
