    “Great location”

    We have stayed in Beddgelert many times and this cottage is in a prime location, ideal for us and our dog. It had everything we needed but unfortunately we had no hot water for two of our three nights there. This was an issue as my wife finds that a bath eases her fibromyalgia, there was a working shower but all the hot taps were stone cold. The information book said to contact the caretaker which we did, but we were disappointed to be told nothing would be done until the Monday, this was no ...

    We have stayed in Beddgelert many times and this cottage is in a prime location, ideal for us and our dog. It had everything we needed but unfortunately we had no hot water for two of our three nights there. This was an issue as my wife finds that a bath eases her fibromyalgia, there was a working shower but all the hot taps were stone cold. The information book said to contact the caretaker which we did, but we were disappointed to be told nothing would be done until the Monday, this was no good to us as that was our day to go home. We had no explanation as to why nothing could be done sooner, yes it was a weekend but surely lots of people stay at weekends so maybe something should have been in place. The caretaker lives locally yet asked us to check the consumer unit ourselves, considering this was our first break this year having worked all through lockdown we thought this situation wasn’t really acceptable. We also spoke to the owner who was very apologetic and clearly this was not his fault, these things happen. If it wasn’t for the water issue and no explanation from the caretaker this would be a 5 star review as the cottage itself is lovely.

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.
