  • "The owner Maureen is lovely and welcoming."

    The property has lovely views looking out towards the Snowdonia mountains from the large paddock adjacent to the walled garden. The garden and paddock is fenced off, where dogs can roam free, but need to be on a lead outside the farm gate where the sheep are. Between the gates the gravelled track is a sharp incline and quite a walk. The property is very warm and has good heating and hot water. The bath doesn't have handrails so my hubby had to opt for the shower. The 2 toilets are a bonus, the induction hob takes some getting used to as we had never used one but instruction books are left underneath. I felt it could have done with a bigger fridge, we couldn't fit everything in and it was low down. It feels remote but you soon get out in a couple of minutes onto the A4086 4 miles to Caernarfon where there are plenty of supermarkets etc I would recommend this property and would stay again but for the 8hr journey it took us.

    Can their be a sign for the cottage on both sides of the driveway from the road, because after going over the bridge and up the hill there is no indication of the cottage on the right.

  • "Lovely property with everything you need, often stay at locations and find things cheap n cheerful, not the case here."

    Well maintained property with all the essentials you would need for a comfortable stay. Ideally situated within easy reach of Snowdon, Anglesey and areas of North Wales for those who are able to take advantage of the surroundings. Bonus for us during our stay was the newly born lambs (some only a day or two old) in the field and watching them grow in a short space of time. Maureen the owner very nice, and helpful with local knowledge. We will be back again defiantly for a second and maybe third helping. Thankyou for a lovely break.

  • "We absolutely loved our stay at Beudy Hywel."

    The accommodation is beautiful and has everything you need. The location of the property is also great, as it’s close to lots of beautiful places such as Llanberis which myself and my family enjoyed visiting. The owner was so helpful and lefts lots of advice on places to visit etc, there were also lots of little touches left by the owner when we arrived, which we didn’t expect. Our dog was also well catered for, with a dog treat, blankets and bowls. We would love to return to this property.

  • "Lovely, comfortable cottage in a fantastic location."

    After some very wet and windy walks up and around Snowdon the cottage was really great to come back to and relax. It had everything we needed, Rusty was very happy with his doggy bits and pieces. The cottage smelled lovely and fresh when we walked in. It's in a brilliant location, out of the way, but not too remote that you can't get to anything. Just perfect! Thank you Maureen, we will definitely be back!

  • "Lovely cottage, perfect for a week-long family holiday (with two Primary-School-Age children)."

    The bed was extremely comfortable, the kitchen well equipped and the cottage beautifully presented. The garden and paddock offered lots of space for the children some independence to play. The views towards Snowdon were fabulous with a cup of tea in the morning (or a glass of gin in the evening)! Perfect location for exploring both Snowdonia and Anglesea. Would thoroughly recommend visiting nearby Padarn Lake/Country Park - book in advance if you want to hire water sport equipment, though!

  • "The cottage is a little gem, so very pleased we found it."

    It is set on the edge of a village with good facilities, but the approach to the cottage is quite surprising, along a track across two fields, then the cottage appears to be set in the middle of nowhere! So very quiet and peaceful, a pretty garden and bbq area, with views of the mountains, gorgeous! The cottage itself certainly had the 'wow factor', well equipped and furnished, comfortable bed and lovely shower, everything you could need for a holiday away from it all. It is a perfect base for exploring the area and Anglesey, lots of places to visit, would recommend the garden centre Fron Goch at Carnarvon for their coffee and scones, and plants too, of course! Warm welcome from owner Maureen, lovely lady, helpful but not intrusive. The milk in the fridge and wine were appreciated.

    It was so cosy and warm and had everything you could wish to have. Had views of Snowdonia from the large garden and was in a very good location for visiting the area. We visited to the 2 local pubs in the village, the Glyntwrog did do food and for all we didn't eat there i have to say it did look very nice. Both were only a short drive but probably a good 20 minute walk away. I would recommend any couple to visit this cottage and will definitely return ourselves

  • "The field full of sheep with 2 gates to open can be a bit tricky to navigate, particularly in the dark & if it's muddy."

    Definately recommend a good torch & wellies in winter. Apart from that it's beautifully appointed cottage with all the facilities you need, with a fantastic view & peaceful setting, especially with the bunnies outside first thing in the morning. Easy access to Llanberis & Caernarfon, plus the pretty village of Beddgelert is not to far either.

    Equipped with everything you need and beautiful grounds to relax in after a busy day visiting the area. Easy and convenient commutes to Anglesey, Conwy and Colwyn Bay. Yet the cottage is snuggled at the end of a quaint looking field which plays host to some sheep and a family of rabbits. Beautiful views of Snowdon and over Llanrug. The journey to Llanberis is a mere 10 minutes where there is not only the start of the Llanberis path up Snowdon and the Snowdon Mountain Railway but also the beautiful Lake Padarn, the country park and the Lake railway. Zip World in Blaenau Ffestiniog is a 45 minute drive through the fantastic Snowdonia mountain range. We will definitely be coming back again soon.

    It has it all - comfortable, cosy, beautifully appointed, stunning views, some fantastic little touches (unexpected WiFi for example!) which I won’t detail because they are a lovely surprise, especially if you’re there with your dog like we were. Had a wonderful weekend, very relaxing, great location for Llanberis but also central to the whole of Snowdonia. For example, one evening we went for dinner at the far end of Anglesey and it was only 30 minutes back. Thank you!

    Lovely comfortable bed and bedding, nice bathroom and spare toilet. Didn’t see sight nor sound from the owner, only rang her on arrival day as broadband wasn’t working, which we sorted ourselves. Got snowed in on 3rd day, couldn’t get car out at all! Nice and cosy warm and comfortable cottage with great views, hope to return some time. Did have a couple of issues with cleanliness as several cooking utensils needed washing, the table runner was covered in other people’s old food ( yuk, I washed it!) and several cobwebs especially in the window recesses. Think we left cottage cleaner than we found it! Having said that we would still return.

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 on their sheep farm, 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.

This Llanrug cottage is approached via a private gravel track across sheep fields, which gives it a great feeling of isolation, however, you're only a 5-minute walk from the local village pub.

An outstanding Snowdonia cottage surrounded by countryside walks, ideal for romantic getaways or activity weekends whenever you wish.

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.
