About Alix Furness

We love our holiday property and try to make it a home from home. We cannot use the property as much as we would like, so we rent it out so that others can relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery as well as contributing to the local economy.

Alix Furness purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Alix Furness chose Beddgelert

We bought the cottage in 2002 when it was rather run down.We renovated the cottage installing new bathrooms, kitchen, central heating, etc. We used to have a caravan on the Llyn Peninsula and decided that we would prefer a cottage. Beddgelert is the most beautiful village in Wales in my opinion. The surrounding scenery is magnificent and always uplifts my spirit. The local restaurants are very good. The cottage has two foot thick walls and a slate roof.

What makes this cottage unique

Our cottage is peaceful with all mod cons. Sky TV package, Netflix and high speed fibre broadband internet access facilitate entertainment if the weather is bad. The central heating and electricity are included in the rental price. Some properties have electricity meters that you have to top up paying extra and you worry that the electricity may run out, which is not very relaxing!

There are several good restaurants and pubs in easy walking distance.

There are many excellent walks straight out from the cottage and many more a short car ride away. The local Sherpa bus round Snowdon has a bus stop outside the cottage.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'It's a lovely home - well within reach of local amenities and perfectly located for trips into the mountains of Snowdonia. We would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage to anyone -it really is a gem.' Andy Ward 12/1/09



'The house has a nice cosy feel to it, with good sized rooms, a big kitchen and very efficient heating and wood burning fire. Just walk outside and you have numerous listed walks around the village area and another 8 or more listed paths up Mt Snowdon'



'This is a beautifully kept cottage from another era that made a great base from which to explore Snowdonia'

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: For our comfort and that of our guests no smoking is allowed in the cottage. The orange/EE mobile network is the only network in the village. Mobile phone reception is poor in the cottage. There is a burglar alarm and smoke alarms. Sorry, pets not allowed. We do not have off road parking. Gwynant Street next to the cottage is a quiet road which you can see on Street View with ample room for parking. Outside: There is a small enclosed patio garden with a table and chairs for 6 for alfresco dining. The garden is a south facing sun trap. The lockable shed contains a couple of loungers and room for bikes. My favourite walk; cross the road outside the cottage and go slightly to your right past the phone box. Turn left onto the bridge over the river. Turn immediately right and follow the fisherman's path for a couple of miles through the Aberglaslyn Pass (voted most beautiful scenery in Britain by the members of The National Trust). Cross the road bridge over the river on your right, then follow the road to your left towards Portmadoc for 50 metres. Follow the path on your right before you reach the house and then go up through the magnificent forest for 20 minutes. At the summit of the walk there is a stupendous panoramic view. Follow the gentle trail back down to Beddgelert passing Gelert's Grave. Takes approx 90 minutes. Utility Room: Washing machine, two tumble dryers, iron, ironing board. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Linen provided but not towels. Other: Entrance hall with payphone and WiFi hub. Sun room with table and chairs for 4 and L-shaped couch and coffee table for 6

Simply mesmerising experience at the Cottage and in Beddgelert. Wow!!

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful short stay ay Is-y-Graig at Beddgelet. The Cottage has everything you need. Spacious rooms with all the facilities you need. The house has been decorated beautifully and kids loved the place. The village is a beautiful one right in the heart of Snowdonia. We would love to return to the place in future.

Honestly described, a good stay

  • 4 of 5

Property has all needed facilities, kitchen kit very good, and is just as advertised. We were always able to park but felt it would be touch and go at busier times. The decor feels a bit tired and there are difficult bits such as the steep stairs and shower room ceiling. Beefy heating system, good tv and reliable wifi, reasonably comfy sofas and beds. Note, little mobile signal on any network. Great value for money.

The property fitted our needs

  • 4 of 5

The property is well placed in the village. Comfortable beds, but the sitting room sofas and chair are rather past their best and difficult to get out of.

The cottage is well stocked with cutlery, crockery etc plus fridge freezer, oven, 2 microwaves and a slow cooker.

Personal laundry can be attended to in the washing machine with seperate dryer.

I would say however that the stairs could be a problem to the elderly or infirm.

TV viewing is well catered for..

We had a great time but could have done without so much rain

Of course that is why Wales is so green! 😉?

Perfect base to explore Snowdonia National Park

  • 5 of 5

We made a very last minute booking to stay at this property over the bank holiday weekend, and it did not disappoint. The cottage is beautiful and very spacious with comfortable furnishings and a well-stocked kitchen. The new sun-room was a lovely light space to relax in. The cottage is well-located, a 2 minute walk to the shops, pubs and cafes of Beddgelert and perfectly positioned for walks and hikes in the area. We spent a very enjoyable 2 days walking in the surrounding hills and enjoying good pub food back at the village. Alix was a great host, with detailed information about the cottage, facilities and local area all supplied before departure, and was very responsive to our queries. Very highly recommended - we would love to stay again!
