About the Owner

This beautiful log lodge is set on the bank of the Afon (River) Colwyn by the edge of Beddgelert Forest (which is located a short distance from the center of the picturesque village of Beddgelert in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fantastic stay at Colwyn lodge! Myself and my wife were looking for a quiet getaway for the weekend when we came across Colwyn lodge, located on private farmland in the heart of snowdonia it seemed to have the perfect mix of comfort and the outdoors we were looking for without being too costly. On arriving (slightly late) at the farm we were met by the very friendly and accommodating Elaine and Ed (and their beautiful sheepdog Guinness) who promptly showed us around the lodge and made sure we had everything needed for our stay. Elaine and Ed's hosting style is perfect as they are always there if you need anything but are in no way imposing, they also gave us some great tips about many of the walks and different tracks to take as well as local pet friendly pub recommendations which was much appreciated. The lodge itself is located directly opposite the main house but is surrounded on all sides by a stone wall / secure fence so we could let our dogs roam freely and is in no way overlooked. The lodge is on the bank of a small slow flowing river that our dogs loved and the sound of which was nice to fall asleep to. Inside it was very clean and homely with all the amenities we could have wanted including milk, tea/coffee, cookies and even a bottle of wine, also towels and bedding were provided and there was no issues at all with hot water/electric supply. Since the lodge is right next to a river and the time of year of our stay there were some midgies which was to be expected but were easily countered with the supplied citronella incense sticks and certainly weren't overbearing. The location is absolutely stunning and there are an abundance of different tracks leading from the lodge up the different hills and into the surrounding forests, as well as to the nearest village of Beddgelert which is a 40 minute walk and is well worth taking the time to trek, the nearest path up mount Snowden is also around 10 mins drive away. Lastly it's worth mentioning that the lodge has a unique feel as there are only two lodges on site which are separated by a good distance and so it feels very private and peaceful rather than a crowded campsite which was exactly what we were looking for. We certainly recommend staying with Elaine and Ed and we will be doing so again in future.

A good lodge in great location.

  • 3 of 5

We have just returned from our third visit to this lodge in two years. We really like its location and close proximity to the the forest walks. The lodge is as described and each time we visit small improvements have been made. Elaine and Ed are on site and provide help and information to make sure that you have a pleasant stay. We will be returning next year for another week with our dogs.

A perfect private getaway set in stunning scenery

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and I decided to opt for this property over others, mainly because of the images on the website coupled with the flowing stream outside the property. The property in person exceeded all expectations from the images!

We were greeted by Ed upon arrival, along with a friendly Border Collie. Ed showed us up to the property and how to operate the boiler etc. It was clear that if there were any problems that Ed and Elaine would be happy to help.

A bottle of wine and chocolates were placed in the property for our arrival, which was a lovely touch.

Over the next few days my Wife and I had a wonderful and relaxing time, we took our Golden Lab along with us who thoroughly enjoyed the nearby walks, and the 2 horses and Pony on site!

The only time we required assistance was when we needed to light the gas cooker for the first time, this was swiftly sorted by Ed and Elaine whom helped straight away with no issues! Other than that we were left to enjoy our Easter break in private, it was comforting thought to know they were only down the path should we require help.

Overall this was a fantastic break away for us, made completely by the quality of this property and location. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxing break away. Perfect for couples, dogs, and small families.
