The property

Llanrug 1 mile.

A delightful, detached barn conversion, set in its own 1/2 acre of rough paddock, on a secluded part of the owners' land, one mile from the village of Llanrug, on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park in scenic North Wales.

This charming single-storey Llanrug cottage has been superbly renovated to offer light, airy and spacious accommodation, with an entrance hall that leads to an open plan living area with fully fitted kitchen, dining area and sitting area.

The living area boasts a galleried ceiling, revealing exposed oak beams, plus an inglenook fireplace houses a remote controlled feature fire, and there is the added bonus of a corner sofa, which converts into a double bed.

A door leads through into a small dressing room and then into the king-size double bedroom with stylish en-suite bathroom.

Outside this Snowdonia cottage is a pleasant patio and lawned garden, which has a 'canal' water feature and provides an ideal place for enjoying a meal or cold drink on a sunny evening.

Herb and rockery gardens are also in the grounds, and guests have access to a paddock area where elevated views towards Snowdon Mountain can be seen.

Guest Reviews


    • “Beautiful Cottage and well worth another visit.”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We stayed in Beudy Hywel beginning of May 2015 and the weather was wet, very wet but still came away having a lovely stay and that was down to the cottage. The owner was lovely, easy to talk to and you felt nothing was too much effort. Looks lovely form the outside as you can see and the view of Snowdon is a pleasure to behold. Inside the cottage is very nice too. Nice and clean, plenty of space for the two of us. The appliances are new and clean, easy to use and wouldn't of asked for more. All in all I really recommend this cottage to anyone wishing to stay in the area.”

    • “Beautiful Contemporary Barn in Wonderful Setting”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “My partner and I stayed here just a few weeks ago and it was the best holiday cottage we have stayed in. The barn has been converted in a very modern way but it is very cosy and homely. The cottage is reached via two gated fields and overlooks a large expanse of grass from where you can see Snowdon, and it was lovely sitting out in the evening watching the bunnies, and sheep and horses nearby. It was very well located for all the gorgeous mountains and countryside of Snowdonia as well as giving good access to the coast and Anglesey. Llanrug itself is a 10 minute walk, with a couple of pubs, general stores, post office and fish and chip shop. The cottage is very well equipped for two people, being open plan, and lovely to come home to at the end of a tiring day. We definitely hope to return.”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “I stayed at the Beudy Hywel with my wife and our 9 month old baby for a week in Dec 2013, and with regards to the cottage, our stay was near perfect! Some points that I must mention: 1. Very tastefully decorated, top quality modern furnishings and kitchen equipment, huge LCD makes you feel at home. Everything is there to make you not miss home! The welcome wine was a pleasant surprise :-) 2. Lovely owner, Mrs. Banner - she was so very helpful in making sure we were comfortable - right from directions (which aren't easy if not guided properly!) to the setup of the place, especially for our 9 month old... Very warm and friendly owner! 3. The views - mesmerising! the cottage is at a height so the views of the town / village, especially at night are breathtaking! The sheep in the fields and the horses next door make the stay very pleasing! 4. Open until midnight huge Tesco and Morrisons near Caernarfon (within 3-4 miles) - so very handy for supplies! 5. Mrs. Banner lives just across the field, so in case of any help, there's nothing to worry about. Some additional info (these didn't bother us, but worth noting!): 1. No washing machine, though there are laundrettes within close enough driving distance. 2. If you're traveling in winters, I would strongly recommend driving your own car as the approach to the cottage is 'through' 2 fields which are literally part of the property, but don't have any lights, quite understandably. Being new to the place, you don't want to be walking through the dark! Overall - a FANTASTIC stay, I would give this 5 stars on 5 - the additional info is just something to be aware of to make sure there aren't any surprises!”

    • “Everything was left ready for us, even a bottle of wine in the fridge on arrival. Although my husband and I were away for a walking holiday the place has a couple retreat feel about it, the decor is well set out and furnished with a very relaxing feel to it. The space outside is lovely with the chairs, barbecue to use and water feature giving you an isolated feel with only she sheep and a pony in the next field for company. We couldn't have asked for anything more out of our holiday and I would stay there again if in the area, beautifully peaceful.”

    • “Gorgeous Conversion”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Beudy Hywel has been converted and furnished to the absolute highest standard. The whole place is spotless and full of light. What's more, the furnishing are lovely, beds are comfortable, linens are high quality, and the kitchen is fully kitted out. Beudy Hywel's location is perfect for exploring the Snowdonia region. It's less than 10 minutes to Caernarfon in one direction, and less than 10 minutes to Llanberis in the other. It is only a short drive to a local pub and grocery store. I had a lovely long weekend here with my husband and two young daughters. It is excellent value and I could not recommend it more highly.”

Walks are from the front door, so no real need to get in the car to go for walks. A great place to stay.”

About the location


Llanberis 2 miles; Caernarfon 4 miles; Betws-y-Coed 15 miles.

Llanrug is a small village with two pubs, two shops, a Post Office, a hotel with indoor swimming pool and fitness room, and a 9 hole golf course is nearby. The village is situated in the foothills of the Snowdonia Mountain Range, only 3 miles from famous Llanberis. Dominated by the grandeur of the Snowdon Massif, Llanberis is flanked by two lakes, Llyn Padarn and Llyn Peris, and is one of the most popular mountain tourist centres in the Snowdonia National Park. Llanberis is something of a 'mecca' for walkers and climbers, being the starting point for the ascent of Snowdon - the highest mountain in Wales. The ascent can be made either by train, on the Snowdonia Mountain Railway, or on foot along one of the many routes to the summit. Llanberis boasts excellent places to eat and drink and a great choice of shopping. Just 4 miles from Llanrug, on the coast, is Caernarfon with its magnificent 13th century castle and town walls and close by are National Trust properties at Penrhyn and Plas Newydd and many wonderful beaches.
