  • "Accomodation fantastic!"

    Highly recommend if you want a relaxed stay stoking a log burner, throwing steak on the BBQ and taking a dip in a jacuzzi/hot tub under the moonlight. Owners were very helpful yet left us to it. Will definitely be booking to go back!

  • "Fantastic place which we all loved."

    The photo's didn't do it justice. Outside area was amazing and we had plenty of BBQ. The beds were the most comfortable we have ever slept in in any holiday accommodation.

  • "As a group of friends we had a fantastic & really relaxing time in The Lodge!"

    Beautiful house with plenty of room for the 5 of us, great facilities, very clean & tidy & all round just great. The men who greeted us to show us around were very friendly & helpful and always just a phone call away although we didn't need any assistance once as all our needs were met. We loved the outdoor facilities too with the hot tub & big fire (+ plenty of fire wood without a charge which was great) Took a drive across for a walk on Angelsey beach in the sunshine which was an easy 30 minutes drive followed by a lovely pub lunch. Perfect little weekend. Fantastic stay from start to finish & we are already looking at booking again for the summer.

About the location


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.
