Our home is part of a small estate of individually designed houses and features open plan living spaces and high vaulted ceiling typical of Danish mid-century styling. The mid-century modern look is complimented with some Ercol and G PLan furniture and Earmes inspired pieces.
We try to run Beddgelert House in a low impact way environment--sustainability to support our local environment and sustainability goals whilst offering a comfortable home to make the most of our natural resources.
The open plan living area is level split with steps between the lounge and dining area. The entrance hall has a heated coat cupboard with plenty of storage for muddy boots and wellies.
The kitchen overlooks the private patio area and is fully fitted with modern units and appliances, including integrated fridge/freezer, halogen hob and electric fan oven. The kitchen is equipped with everything necessary for self-catering, including a Dualit Expressivo coffee machine, Dualit toaster and microwave.
Ecological washing up liquid, tea towels, dishcloths, soap and toilet paper are provided, together with essentials such as tea, filter and expresso coffee, sugar, extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and peppercorns.
Ample pots and pans, crockery, tea pot, water jugs, cafetiere and even children's plastic cups and plates are provided and you will find cookery books and tins if you want to do any baking.
The dining area has a large oak table seating 6 with high vaulted wooden ceilings, velux window, slate floor and a lovely modern Scandanavian-style wood burning stove.
Three steps lead to the main living room with a polished oak floor and seating for 6. A full length patio door, opening onto a large decked verana, provides outdoor access. There is an additional outdoor dining table for 6 and a separate sitting area to make the most of the mountain views.
For your entertainment we have a flat screen digital TV with Amazon Firestick, DVD player, wifi, a Bose iPod docking station with bluetooth, and you'll find a gorgeous retro Roberts Revival radio in each bedroom.
We have a small library of books, novels, family DVDs, board games, walking and visitor guides, nearby tourist attractions and guidebooks on the local area. Our Guest Information book includes many of our own personal recommendations, including some fantastic walking and cycling routes, days out and suggested activities for you to enjoy.
There are 3 spacious bedrooms sleeping up to 6 people - 2 on the ground floor and 1 located off the lounge on a mezzanine floor. All the bedrooms are equipped with comfortable beds with memory foam matresses and quality 200 count pure cotton bed linen, together with cosy throws.
The double ground floor bedroom overlooking the garden features a shaker style white wooden bed, spacious built-in wardrobes and lovely views of the beautiful mountains - when the leaves are not on the trees you'll also have views of the little Welsh Highland Steam Trains heading into the station.
The twin bedroom features high vaulted wooden ceiling with lots of built in wardrobe space, together with a large trunk housing children's games and toys for guest use.
The third double bedroom again has amazing high vaulted wooden ceilings giving a Scandanavian feel and has a lovely view over the village and the mountains beyond (please note this bedroom is on a mezzanine level and does not have a door, but is quite private).
Both are downstairs and have a fresh and contemporary style with heated towel rails, downlights, and slate floors. The shower-room is larger than average, with a fully tiled shower enclosure, WC and handbasin. The bathroom, located between both downstairs bedrooms, has a full sized bath, WC, and handbasin.
UTILITY SPACE AND STORAGE
Washing machine and tumble dryer with plenty of hanging space and we have a hose for washing down bikes, wetsuits, etc.
The house is laid out in an unusual, back to front style with the kitchen overlooking a private gated patio finished in local slate (great for al fresco eating, it catches the last of the sun in the evening), and a very spacious split level decked area accessed from the patio doors off the living area leads to a grassed area. The decked area has dining for 6 and a separate sitting area with lounge chairs. A footpath behind the garden leads to the Welsh Highland Railway Station/Moel Hebog/Beddgelert Forest with off road bike trails to the nearby falls and lake. Don't forget to wave to the passing steam trains!
Guests have the benefit of off road parking for 2 vehicles on our private driveway and a secure garage for storing paddle boards, bikes, canoes, etc.
