Cottage in Beddgelert, Snowdonia National Park, North Wales - Within Walking Distance Of All Village Amenities
Gwynfa is a fully equipped self catering cottage located on the banks of the River Colwyn, in the picturesque, award winning village of Beddgelert.

The village of Beddgelert has a number of pubs - some of them dog friendly - cafes, tea rooms and shops offering local crafts and produce. It also has an award winning Ice Cream Parlour with attached pizza place where you bring your own wine no corkage charged. Most of the pubs serve food and the Hebog Bistro does breakfast, lunch and evening meals (booking is advised). Amongst the other amenities are a post office and well stocked general store.

About the Owner
About Lynn Price
I live on the side of Moel Hebog overlooking the village of Beddgelert along with my dog Joe. I moved here from Manchester 10 years ago and have never looked back. We enjoy everything the area has to offer, from forest and lakeside walks to strolls on the nearby beach.
Lynn Price purchased this cottage in 2012
Why Lynn Price chose Beddgelert
Although I live slightly away from the village I enjoy all the amenities there and when Gwynfa went up for sale I saw the potential to extend it and make it into a home. I decided to let it out until I am ready to move into myself.
What makes this cottage unique
Gwynfa is close to all the village amenities, has it's own private patio overlooking the river towards Meol Hebog and boasts an off road parking space.

Lovely cottage in fantastic location
We've been staying Beddgelert for many years and were delighted to have found Lynn's comfortable cottage in its excellent location. The village centre, with its shops, cafés and pubs, is only moments away and - often unusually for Beddgelert - having its own parking space adds to the convenience. The view across the river from the rear patio (and kitchen/rear bedroom windows) is lovely. Lynn greeted us in person on arrival and, while showing us round, we could see straightaway that all the previous reviews we'd read saying "Lynn has thought of and included everything you could need" really are all totally true. Thank you Lynn, we'll most certainly be back.
