Beautiful cottage set in an amazing village and convenient location to the local attractions. Cottage is idyllic and has everything you need, easy to book and key arrangement is great. The village has everything you need plus some excellent places to eat. The children loved jumping off the bridge into the river whilst I watched over them doing a BBQ in the garden. Would thoroughly recommend a holiday in this cottage. The region has so much to offer and would suit anyone requiring a quiet break through to those seeking adventure activities. We zip-wired through caves, white water rafted, saw dolphins on Shell Island, went to bounce below, had a day on the beach and of course walked Snowdon. Brilliant holiday thank you.

Cosy, cute cottage.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 2 nights and were delighted with this cottage. It is full of character and contains everything needed for a self catering stay. The garden is lovely with a beautiful river view and the cottage is perfectly located for village amenities.Beddgelert is also a great place to be centered for Snowdon and North Wales coast.

The Miner's Cottage was Nice

  • 4 of 5

A two story cottage nestled in Beddelgert village center. It is a picturesque setting. It had all the amenities one would need to have your meals in. The bathroom added on to the back of the cottage at a later date than when the cottage was built was quite nice....heated floor and a shower. There are no towels provided and it says so on it's listing, however the host did provide one bath towel and hand towel, which came in handy as coming from America you do not typically travel with bath and hand towels. We did take the trash out for collection as asked...new experience for us when traveling. I think it's highlight is it's setting and the amenities it offers one when away from home.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely cottage in the heart of the village close to all the amenities including a very good general store and the excellent Hebog restaurant. We spent a couple of afternoons on Black Rock Sands, went mountain biking in Beddgelert forest, hiked along the river towards Prenteg and went on an underground tour of Sygun copper mine. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Fantastic Base from which to explore Snowdonia.

  • 5 of 5

We booked Clydfan Cottage for a long weekend break mid January and arrived just as thew snow was beginning to fall. We'd stayed in the beautiful village of Beddgelert before but this was our first stay in Clydfan and what a great find it turned out to be. The cottage has a very traditional and homely feel with nice decoration throughout. The added twist was the contemporary bathroom with underfloor heating, which, considering the deep snow outside, was extremely welcome. Clydfan is the perfect base from which to explore the fantastic mountains, quite literally on the doorstep. Once back down in the village at the end of a long day the local pubs provide a welcome stop off for a drink before returning to the cottage for a relaxing evening in front of the wood burning stove. One regret is that I didn't get to experience sitting out at the back of the cottage and idling away a few hours watching the river go by, but will save that for a return visit once the weather has turned warmer. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thanks Nick, your review makes us want to go up there right now! Hopefully you get to appreciate the river next time. Would recommend a take out pizza from the village with your own drinks whilst watching the river go by, you can't really get much better than that!

Perfect cottage in a great little village

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for New Year 2012 and had a wonderful week. The cottage is perfect and the owners really go that extra mile to ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible - we were particularly thrilled by the bottle of wine and shortbread that welcomed us when we arrived!The weather was terrible during our stay but the four village pubs and steam railway provided ample entertainment. New Year's Eve itself was rather special, with the whole of Beddgelert (and the local villages) descending on the bridge in the middle of the village for fireworks and dancing!
