    JUST CAME BACK FROM A LOVELY HOLIDAY AT PENLAN, FROM 3rd to 10th MARCH 2018. WHAT A LOVELY QUAINT COTTAGE, EVERYTHING WE NEEDED FOR OUR STAY, WELL EQUIPED KITCHEN ELECTRIC HOB / OVEN, MICROWAVE, GOOD SIZE FRIDGE FREEZER, AND COSY LIVING ROOM WITH A NICE VIEW OF THE MOUNTAINS. BEDROOM IS VERY NICE ALSO WITH A GOOD VIEW OF THE MOUNTAINS. BACK OF THE PROPERTY IS SECLUDED GARDEN WITH ONLY A ROCKFACE THERE, SO NO ONE PASSING OR LOOKING IN, AS WE BOOKED FOR THE WEEK DURING THE BAD WEATHER OF THE BEAST FROM THE EAST, TRAVELLING FROM THE WEST MIDLANDS WAS UNSURE WE'D GET THERE, NO PROBLEMS AND ALL ROADS WERE CLEAR TAKING THE A5 ROUTE, HOWEVER THE COTTAGE AS A PRIVATE DRIVE ONLY FOR 1 CAR ON A STEEP BANK,LEVELS OUT AT TOP DON'T PANIC , THIS WAS THE ONLY PLACE I HAD TO DIG OUT THE SNOW & ICE TO GET CAR UP, BE PREPARED TO REVERSE DOWN THE STEEP DRIVE AS THE NEIGHBOURING COTTAGE ALSO PARK UP THERE AND NO ROOM FOR TURNING ROUND WHEN THERE'S ANOTHER CAR THERE. BUT THERE IS A SMALL CLEARING AT BOTTOM OF DRIVE TO LEAVE CAR OR ANOTHER CAN BE SEEN FROM COTTAGE. COTTAGE IS HEATED USING STORAGE HEATERS, THE ONLY ONE THAT SEEM'S TO WORK EFFECTIVLY IS THE FRONT BEDROOM, OTHERS ARE NOT SO GOOD, THERE'S IS ALSO A DIMPLEX ELECTRIC STOVE 2KW FAN HEATER THAT AS A MIND OF IT'S OWN AND SWITCHES OFF THE HEAT WHEN IT FEELS LIKE IT, PLUS THE FLAMES START GOING DOWNWARDS INSTEAD OF UP AHAH, SO DON'T RELY ON IT (should be replaced) BATHROOM AS A FAN HEATER THAT WORKS OK, BUT NEEDS TO BE ON FOR A WHILE TO WARM ROOM UP PRIOR TO SHOWERING ETC, ELECTRIC SHOWER WORKS FINE, AS IT WAS THIS TIME OF YEAR WE TOOK OTHER PEOPLES ADVICE FROM REVIEWS AND TOOK A COUPLE OF EXTRA FAN HEATERS WITH US AND IT WAS A GOOD JOB WE DID. IT WOULD BE NICE IF TV AND DVD PLAYER WERE LARGER AND BETTER CONDITION FOR THE COSY NIGHTS IN, THE OTHER AREA OF OUR CONCERN WAS MOBILE PHONE COVERAGE TO KEEP IN TOUCH WITH SONS BACK HOME AND FAMILY ETC. WE USE THE THREE 3 NETWORK AND SIGNAL IS ABOVE HALFWAY AND GAVE US PEACE OF MIND BEING ABLE TO KEEP IN TOUCH, YOU CAN ALSO GET MOBILE BROADBAND BY CONNECTING TO YOUR PHONE , SO I WAS ABLE TO CARRY ON WITH EBAY AND GENERAL SURFING. IN OUR OPINION THIS IS A GREAT LOVELY COTTAGE IN A FANTASTIC SPOT AND WITH A HISTORY OF RUPERT BEAR AUTHOR ALFRED BESTALL WHO ALSO DID ILLUSTRATE FOR ENID BLYTON BOOKS. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT,LOADS OF WALKS AND CLOSE ENOUGH TO VILLAGE HOPEFULLY WE WILL BE REVISTING FOR ANOTHER STAY. Kelvyn & Penny ROGERS, WOMBOURNE

The property

Beddgelert 0.3 miles. A charming, detached Beddgelert cottage, set in quiet woodland in an elevated position above the picturesque village of Beddgelert in the Snowdonia National Park.

This Beddgelert cottage is affectionately known as Rupert Bear's Cottage in memory of the author and illustrator of the Rupert Bear stories, who lived there from 1956 to 1986.

He gained his inspiration from the local countryside and wrote the Rupert Bear stories from here for many years.

This secluded Beddgelert cottage has two bedrooms, a sitting/dining room, and a well-equipped kitchen area, both with exposed wooden beams.

The gardens and woodland surrounding this Beddgelert holiday home provide peace and tranquillity, yet the cottage is only a 5-minute stroll into the centre of Beddgelert.

There are miles of walking tracks around, some starting from outside the door of this Beddgelert cottage.

Further afield are the beaches of Porthmadog, Italianate Portmeirion, castles at Caernarfon, Conwy and Harlech and the coastline of the Llyn Peninsula.

A fantastic Beddgelert cottage, in a great location at any time of the year.

About the location

BEDDGELERT

Porthmadog 6 miles; Caernarfon 13 miles.

The picturesque village of Beddgelert lies in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park at the foot of Mount Snowdon. Beddgelert is a bustling village with arts and craft shops, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants, centred around the Afon Glaslyn river. A 20 minute stroll along the river will take you to the Aberglaslyn Pass, one of North Wales’ most famous beauty spots. The Welsh Highland Steam Railway passes through the village on its journey from Porthmadog to Caernarfon. Beddgelert is famed for its monument to the Welsh Prince Llewelyn's dog, whom the Prince killed thinking it had attacked and killed his son, only to discover afterwards it had been defending his son from a savage wolf attack. With Porthmadog, Portmeirion, Borth y Gest and the whole of the Llyn Peninsula easily reached, this is an ideal location for a Welsh holiday.
