The property

A single-storey, detached pine lodge, set amongst 12 acres of glorious woodland by the banks of the River Ogwen, on the Ogwen Bank Holiday Park and Country Club, close to the town of Bethesda in the breathtaking Snowdonia National Park.

The lodge provides an appealing base for couples, families and friends wishing to explore this wonderful countryside, and as it is part of a large park where full use of all facilities are available, you will have everything you need for both a tranquil and relaxing time, and an action-filled family holiday.

All on one level, this comfortable lodge has three bedrooms, a bathroom and spacious open plan living accommodation, with a kitchen, a dining area and a sitting area with a gas fire.

Patio doors open onto a lovely decked veranda overlooking the River Ogwen, which is a lovely place to sit out and enjoy an early morning cuppa, a leisurely breakfast or lunch alfresco-style, or just a glass of something refreshing after a busy day exploring.

You may even be lucky enough to be visited by the friendly robin and the local wild ducks and squirrels, or see a woodpecker or two.

Deep in the heart of the park is the Olde Worlde Country Club, the former hunting lodge to Penrhyn Castle.

Complete with a log fire and an excellent licensed bar, the Club provides the perfect atmosphere in which to relax after exploring the wilds of Snowdonia.

If you don’t fancy cooking, bar meals are served both day and night, and there is a separate bar for children serving soft drinks, with a play area.

There is also live music entertainment, pool tables, video games and satellite television, plus some limited basic supplies can be purchased onsite, however the amenities of Bethesda are just a short walk away.

Keen walkers and hikers would have to look long and hard for more spectacular countryside in which to spend their days, and Llanberis, situated at the foot of Mount Snowdon, is only a 25-minute drive away.

Let the train take the strain if you don’t fancy the walk up Snowdon, as the Snowdon Mountain Railway will take you to the mountain’s very summit!

Dunelm Lodge is ideally situated for Zip World Velocity, home to the longest zip line in Europe, and the fastest in the world.

This adrenalin-fuelled attraction is located in the most dramatic of settings and only a five-minute drive away.

Slightly further afield, visit Caernarfon and its castle, or visit the peaceful Isle of Anglesey.

The delightful village of Betws-y-Coed is only 14 miles away, with its array of tea rooms, craft shops and outdoor activities, and with the popular Swallow Falls and Fairy Glen nearby, it makes a great day out for everyone!

There is so much to do in the area that a week in this wonderful, year-round lodge simply won’t be enough!

About the location

BETHESDA

Bangor 6 miles; Caernarfon 10 miles.

Bethesda is a small town settled beside the River Ogwen in North Wales. Situated on the A5 between Bangor and the Snowdonia National Park, Bethesda was once a busy slate quarrying town and nowadays offers a good selection of shops and other amenities, in particular a number of chapels and pubs. The beautiful mountainous scenery of Snowdonia borders Bethesda, with the Lôn Las Ogwen cycling and walking paths skirting past. For the more adventurous, why not visit Zip World in Bethesda which is known for having Europe’s fastest and longest zip line. Capel Curig, just ten miles away, is a popular centre for walking, climbing and mountain biking, whilst Llanberis is situated at the foot of Mount Snowdon and is home to the Snowdon Mountain Railway and the National Slate Museum. Cwm Idwal is also a wonderful spot to visit, situated in northern Snowdonia – Darwin came to study the area and found tiny fossils of oceanic plant life and sea creatures in the boulders and rocks. The coastal town of Caernarfon is just a short drive away as is the beautiful Isle of Anglesey and the Anglesey Coastal Path. Visitors to the area can also explore the castles of Caernarfon and Beaumaris and the NT stately homes of Penrhyn Castle and Plas Newydd Country House and Gardens. Spend the day at one of the many traditional seaside resorts, or discover the isolated, hidden beaches on Anglesey, much of which is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With spectacular scenery on the doorstep, wonderful wildlife with buzzards soaring overhead and the occasional Peregrine Falcon to be seen, and many exciting outdoor adventures to discover nearby, Bethesda is superbly located for enjoying both the coast and the countryside of stunning North Wales.
