Beautifully situated cottage with wonderfully comfortable beds! It is a fabulous spot and despite the truly appalling weather we had a great time. — Penny, 09 Jun 2017
We have just spent a week at Beddgelert House and can't rate it highly enough. It was perfect for our family of 6 - stunning location, really well equipped, and with numerous leaflets, magazines and other pieces of information it was fantastic. All the information that Jackie had provided prior to our arrival was brilliant - highlights for us were the Aberglaslyn Pass, the steam train to Porthmadog, walks around the village, a few hours spent in Betws-y-coed, the Titan and Fforest Coaster at Zip World. Thank you so much Jackie, we are already planning a return trip next year as we didn't do half of what we were hoping to do... Lotty Dunbar — Lotty and Dougie Dunbar, 04 Jun 2017
Stayed here for 3 nights May 2017 with friends, and the house was great. 3 pubs within a couple of minutes, village shop round the corner & sherpa bus down the road. Added bonus of a cup of tea and biscuits on arrival. Will be back. Thanks for having us. — Kerry Holmes, 19 May 2017
Amazing house in the heart of Snowdonia. Jackie's place is a well located, wonderfully decorated and Jackie was a great host. 100% satisfied! — Andrew via Airbnb, 10 Apr 2017
We had a lovely time in Beddgelert House. It's very clean, tidy and cosy with the wood burner providing that extra warmth when you return from a day's walking and exploring. Beddgelert is the perfect location to travel around Snowdonia and there are lots of pubs, cafe's and shops in walking distance. We didn't take the train from the station behind the property but would recommend booking when you are there - we will be back to do that one day for sure. The tea & biscuits on arrival was a treat after a long journey. — Angela via Airbnb, 16 Mar 2017
Beddgelert House is a step above the rest! The location and amenities were perfect. The house itself is gorgeous, works very well for a family of 6, and we love that it's eco friendly. Everything you need is either in the house or at your doorstep. You won't regret choosing this house. — Natalie, 01 Mar 2017
We spent 3 lovely days in Jackie's home and it was an amazing experience. The house was exactly as how it looked liked in the pictures -- very tidy, spacious yet still very cozy. The village ambiance provided just the right relaxing feeling one needs for a quick getaway break. It had nice pubs and restaurants just walking distance from the house that served the best meals, at an affordable price. Jackie was very accessible and highly responsive from pre-booking and made sure everything was set for our visit. Will definitely come back and highly recommend this place for others to visit. Thank you Jackie! — Veronica, 08 Dec 2016
" We had a delightful four nights at Hafodty Cottage in Beddgelert in October. We were fortunate to have lovely weather, and we were extremely comfortable. A well-equipped kitchen and comfy furnishings too. What a beautiful little village Beddgelert is! We enjoyed some days out, but also found time to just stroll around the village enjoying the beautiful scenery and of course, visiting Gelert's grave. I would wholeheartedly recommend any family to stay here. I am so pleased we found this cottage when doing our research from South Africa before our holiday. Thank you!"

My family and I recently stayed for the weekend at Jackie's home in Beddgelert over a weekend when we climbed Snowdon. The home is lovely with three good size bedrooms, two bathrooms (one shower, one bath), a well equipped kitchen and large living room. The home was perfectly situated for this with a local (very cheap) bus to a suitable car park from which to start a couple of the walks. Beddgelert is a very pretty village with restaurants, pubs and a great pizzeria and ice cream shop! We also visited Portmeirion on the day we weren't climbing Snowdon - this was only a 20 minute drive away and a lovely day out. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend Jackie's home! — Amy, 13 Jul 2016
A real joy

Five of us spent a great, late April week at Beddgelert House in what turned out to be a wintry one, but it didn't matter. The cental heating system is really efficient, and we also made use of the very welcome and effective wood-burning stove.

Everything in the house is well organised and clean.

The views or the surrounding hills from the french windows are a bonus.

Every step of the way, the attention to detail, from booking stage to the house information folder, made the whole experience a very pleasant and easy-going one.

That, coupled with the location, on the edge of the village, not far from the steam railway station, pubs, village store, restaurant, and with bus routes around Snowdonia, all rounded out the holiday.

We were beaten back from the summit of Snowdon by the weather, but there were plenty of lower-level climbs that were satisfying.

We will return!

We very much enjoyed our stay in Jackie's home in Snowdonia. It was very well appointed, stylish and cosy. Situated in a beautiful village, it was close to many excellent walks. We also enjoyed visiting Portmeirion, only 20 minutes away. Very easy living, and well protected from the weather! A good place to hunker down with our family. — James, 14 Dec 2015
The Beddgelert house is superb. Very modern and open space that can easily fit a family of 4 or even 6. No issues checking in or out and everything was well prepared for us. Beddgelert is a very lovely little village and lots of gorgeous scenery. Take a steam train ride right from the back gate or climb Snowdon from only minutes down the road. Would highly recommend. — Tom, 22 Nov 2015
A perfect stay in beatiful surroundings.
It is not that often that a holiday cottage is exactly as it is described or better but this was very much the case here. The cottage is spacious and clean with excellent facilities. The location is perfect for Snowdonia and there are some wonderful local walks. The owners recommended the Aberglaslyn Gorge walk which we also highly recommend. Beddgelert is delightful picturesque quiet village but it is not short on places to eat and drink. There is good range of restaurants whether the children just fancied a pizza at Glaslyn or we wanted to treat ourselves to something more relaxing at the River Garden. I would also recommend the Saracens Head after a good walk. In fact we did not have time to get around them all. If you are on holiday with your kids there is the award winning Glaslyn ice cream shop. The owner informed me there are 39 different flavours and despite a concerted effort from the kids we did well to try 21 in the week. Nothing like an awarding winning sorbet having climbed Snowdon. The owners provided us with plenty of accurate and helpful information to ensure the process and stay was hassle free and we would happily recommend it to friends and family although only after we have made our booking for next year as I am sure it will get booked up.

Fabulous base for exploring Snowdonia

We (a family of four, two girls 8 and 10) stayed at Beddgelert House for the February half term week. Jackie, the owner, was extremely helpful both before and after our stay and provided lots of really useful information to help us make the most of our holiday. The house itself is extremely well-appointed and the photos do genuinely reflect what you find. The log burner was great after a day out in the cold! Beddgelert itself is a great base for a holiday in this part of the country - picturesque with good pubs (especially the Tanronnen Inn). There are great local walks suitable for older children - e.g. to the remote Llyn Llywelyn or up Cwm Bychan past old copper mine workings. We also enjoyed some good trips out to Caernarfon, Anglesey and even 'Bounce Below'! We would heartily recommend this property and will be returning.

We would recommend this property and village without hesitation. The house is beautiful, exactly as it looks in the photos; spotlessly clean, modern, tastefully decorated and has all the essentials as well as many extras not normally provided with a holiday rental. Hafodty is situated close to the lovely village of Beddgelert with walks accessible straight from the house and the Welsh Highland Railway just a minute's walk from the garden, where you can take a step back in time for a relaxing steam train ride to Caernarvon or Porthmadog. Beddgelert is a beautiful village with several good choices of eating places, together with a well stocked village store and a handful of craft/antique/gallery shops. Our favourites to eat were the Tanronnen Inn and the Prince Llewellyn, and the cafe also had great food. Hafodty and Beddgelert are ideally situated for Snowdon itself (we were lazy and took the train), the coastal towns of Caernarvon and Porthmadog, and my personal favourite, the rather wacky but beautiful Portmeirion gardens. Obviously there are walks galore and we took the stunning walk along the Aberglaslyn Pass and up into the mountains (not suitable for the less sure-footed). We were lucky to have a week of sun with not one spot of rain so everything was great but there is plenty to see and do even in less fine weather. The owner of the house offered superb, efficient and informative communication throughout and was a pleasure to deal with, also offering much useful information on the area, both in advance by email and left in the house. Together with the welcome coffee, biscuits, and milk in the fridge, we were made to feel very welcome and can honestly say we were very reluctant to leave; we hope to return one day. — Tracey & Mick Hayward, 23 Jun 2014
BEAUTIFUL CLEAN HOME FROM HOME

5 out of 5
May 2014

we arrived to find milk and biscuits waiting for us. the house was immaculate with plenty of room for 5 of us. the property was just as it looked on the web site and very well ordered and kept. there was plenty of information regarding how to use the household equipment and also what was on offer in the village such as what to do and where to eat. there was also opportunity for guests to write their own recommendations for other guests. for train fans, the garden is situated thirty seconds from the Welsh Highland Railway and my husband and son both enjoyed taking their coffee and standing on the platform watching the trains! we were able to ride on the railway although it is quite expensive but for a treat and for the stunning views it is worth it. the booking procedure and subsequent e-mail information from the owner has been first class and nothing was too much trouble. we are hoping to stay at the house again next year and would recommend it to anyone.

Lovely Stay in Bedgelert
We loved our stay in this spacious property in Bedgelert. The property was well equipped, spotlessly clean and in a great location. Communication with the owners was excellent, with plenty of information on things to do and local amenities. Would go back this year again if available, but clearly others enjoyed their stay too in this property, judging by the demand!
— OwnersDirect, 08 Apr 2014
This bungalow is in a lovely position with easy access to great walks in the surrounding area. The village is a short stroll away with a good selection of pubs and restaurants, village shop (which stocks a surprising variety of goods) and a Post Office. Also - the best icecreams we've had in ages at the icecream parlour!

The house was clean, modern and well equipped. We had a problem with keys, but this was quickly resolved - the owner is contactable by phone and very helpful.

We stayed there with 3 older children (aged 11,14 and 16) and found plenty to do in the week we were there - lots of walking as well as local museums and a trip to Caernarfon on the steam train.

I would certainly recommend staying here!
— Fiona H, 13 Oct 2013
Perfect week
We spent a really lovely week in this cottage - sunny, blue skies, mountain air, and adjourning to the little sun-kissed patio with an ice cream at the end of a long day's walking was just perfect. Very helpful neighbour on hand and a clean, well equipped cottage made for a really special holiday. Thank you.
— HomeAway, 05 May 2013
Booked this property for a weekend break with friends. Owner was very helpful and provided accurate information in advance. House was clean,spacious and tastefully furnished. Location good within the village of Beddgelert and a good base for exploring the local area. I have previously stayed in the owners other property in Conwy ( Castleview Cottage) which is also maintained to a very high standard. I would recommend to family and friends and would love to return in the summer months to take advantage of the gorgeous surroundings. — Debbie , 11 Feb 2013
We have just spent an amazing 2 weeks in Beddgelert. My husband and I took our 2 children (age 5 and 8). We all had a terrific time and were desperately sad to leave.
The house is lovely, minimalistic and clean. A home from home I wanted for nothing. I did not even miss the dishwasher!
Beddgelert is beautiful and has such an great source of pubs, etc that there is something for everyone. We are missing are evening walks to the bridge to wave at the stream train while eating our new flavoured ice cream (Baileys highly recommended!) It is also very central with Criccieth beach a 30 mins drive away. A great base for exploring North Wales! Book without a worry!
— HomeAway , 20 Aug 2012
Beddgelert House is perfect - I can't fault it - it is exactly as described and really is as lovely as it looks in the photos. Everything you need is in the house and it has a lovely outlook over the National Park at the back. In the evenings you can sit on the sofa and just gaze at the hills looking forward to tomorrow's adventures!
The owner is exceptionally amenable and answered all my queries and was very helpful. The village of Beddgelert is very picturesque, you can walk out of the front door into the village in 5 minutes, yet the house is tucked away up a lane and is very quiet. You can do some gorgeous walks straight from the front door, around Beddgelert, Llyn Dinas, Cwm Bychan and the Aberglaslyn pass and of course Moel Hebog from the back door!
I stayed at the house with 3 friends and we all had a great time, we will definitely be back, very, very soon.

Brilliant Week in Beddgelert

We stayed in Hafodty the second week of Easter and had a great time. The location of the property is excellent for exploring Snowdonia with Beddgelert Station (narrow gauge steam) a 30 second walk from the patio doors and the Sherpa bus stop 1 minute down the hill into the village next to the well stocked and helpful tourist office. Beddgelert has lots to offer and plenty of options for eating out. We liked the 'family friendly' Saracen's Head but did only eat out twice as we had gone prepared for self-catering and the well-equipped kitchen made this easy. No dishwasher was a bit of a pain when you are used to one, but having plenty of everything made up for it. Our week was mixed weather, but a bit wet and cold, so it was great to be able to come back to a warm, comfortable house and on a couple of nights we used the wood burning stove to make it really cosy.

You can do a morning's walk up through the Aberglaslyn Pass and then back over the hills from the door, the last part offering a great view over Beddgelert. You can also walk to the Sygun Copper Mine. We were on a mission to walk up Snowdon with our teenage children which we did twice, once up the Pyg track (need to start early to secure parking which costs £10 by the way), returning down the Miner's track and the second time up the Watkin Path, which was somewhat challenging at the end with a poorly defined loose scree scramble (check out the internet before trying this one although you could just walk up to the waterfalls).

The owner provided us with excellent instructions on how to get to the property and was very helpful when we had a problem with the heating one day.

Finally, it is worth taking some time to look up at the sky on a clear night from the decked patio area and take in the view, especially if you live in a big town like us, as Beddgelert has some of the darkest skies in Britain and the stars are spectacular.

Would definitely recommend this property and location.

Great Property for Exploring North Wales
We had a very pleasant stay in Beddgelert. The property is part of a small housing development on the outskirts of the village. There were lovely views from the living and dining area. It was well equipped and furnished. Jackie was very easy to deal with and we would recommend the property for those wishing to use Beddgelert as a base to explore the lovely walks in North Wales.

Beautiful house, beautiful location
My partner and I have just spent the last week or so in Hafodty. The house is beautiful, as is the location. Surrounded by the mountains of Snowdonia this must be one of the most gorgeous places we have ever visited. The house itself is superb. Wooden ceilings, slate floors, sliding patio doors, very well stocked kitchen, 2 bathrooms, stairs up to mezzanine bedroom, freezer, and wood burning stove plus 2 other bedrooms. We have holidayed in North Wales for quite some period of time and cannot recall having stayed in such a great property in such an amazing location. We dont think we need to search any longer as Hafodty is quite simply the perfect holiday home. Visit it and experience the beauty and splendour of the area and return home in the evening to a quite magnificent house. The Welsh Highland Railway is only 20 yards from the property.
Superb.

Beautiful home, stunning location
We had a fantastic family weekend in this beautiful, stylish home from home. It was spacious, well designed, well equipped and spotlessly clean. The house is in a stunning location in the heart of Snowdonia, with mountain views across the back deck and from the main bedroom window. It's within a few minutes walk of beautiful Beddgelert village and it's a brilliant base for touring Snowdonia. The owner provided loads of useful information about local attractions and places to eat. We spent our first weekend exploring the local area and going on some of the easier, riverside and country park walks with our two children, but can't wait to go back and explore further afield later in the year and maybe even make it up one of the smaller mountains!

Absolutely Perfect retreat
This was our second visit to Beddgelert House! We had another fantastic stay. The property is absolutely fantastic! Well equipped, super clean and extremely cosy! Especially once you get the log burner going which is a delight. Its in an amazing location in Beddgelert. The walks in this area are simply stunning. The customer service that the owner provides is faultless, very detailed information is provided. As soon as you walk through the front door you immediately feel at home. Honestly couldn't have asked for more! I would recommend this property to anyone without hesitation, its a wonderful place for a holiday or break. Thank you
