Cozy, comfortable, modern.

  • 4 of 5

Nice little cottage, all mod cons, great views, clean, tidy and comfortable.

Niggles: bed too small for two tall adults (needs some attention as it really creaks) and the front bedroom could do with black out curtains as the streetlight is on all night.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and I'm sorry you didn't feel the bed was big enough as it is a standard double bed - it is new and probably needs tightening up which I will do. I'm also sorry that you didn't find the blackout curtains enough - or find the blind that is behind them. I hope the niggles didn't spoil you stay in Beddgelert too much.

An adorable little cottage full of home comforts.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this little cottage which is brilliantly positioned for touring the Snowdon area. Immaculately clean, very well equipped kitchen and efficient heating. Relentless rain meant we decided to leave early but we wouldn't hesitate to revisit.

Lovely cottage in a picturesque village

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend in June. The cottage was very clean with everything provided for cooking etc. The deck overlooking the river was a really nice place for a well earned drink after a long day walking. We had a good meal at one of the local pubs and also made use of the barbecue with supplies bought from the local shop.
