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'

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.

Brilliant, perfect location , everything we wanted.

  • 5 of 5

We had a long weekend stay for two night nights, was overwhelmed by how wonderful the village is and right ground the corner from the Watkins trail to snowdon. We walked up snowdon and was brilliant. Was lucky with the weather and came down another way, was a booked guide with large outdoors which was excellent.

The cottage was warm cosy and just right for our party of six. Would definitely stay again and want too. Rich and dee

Perfect cottage for our holiday

  • 5 of 5

We decided to base ourselves in beddgelert for our Easter holiday and loved this cottage.

It is really spacious with lots of room. It has 2 bathrooms which is really unusual and handy for getting everyone showered after a long day out on the hills! The washing machine and dryer were brilliant for getting our wet kit cleaned and dried quickly aswell. The kitchen is very well equipped as we self catered for most of our stay, however went to the pub one night which is only a few minutes walk away. It is a great location perfect for exploring the snowdonia national park with lovely walks starting from the door. Thank you :)

GReat value rustic cottage

  • 4 of 5

This is a great location right in the middle of Beddgelert, slightly off the main road so pretty quiet. There are plenty of walks to do straight from the cottage, such as Moel Hebog or easier riverside walks. Snowdon, the Nantile Ridge, Cnicht & the Moelwyns are a short drive away - as is the coast and beaches and the inimitable Portmeirion village. Most of the rooms are spacious and reasonably well equipped. Good instructions in the cottage. Café Hebog recommended for dinner.

Fantastic cottage in beautiful village

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights in this great cottage in Beddgelert. We loved the village and the walks nearby. The weather was very cold and wet/snowy. The cottage was well equipped if you needed to stay indoors for long periods. We loved the spaces downstairs and the fire to cosy up in front of.
