  • "Whilst we had a great stay at Glyn Awel we would like to point out a few things that might benefit future occupants - a blind or curtains on the downstairs cloak room as it could be a bit embarrassing if people are dining/sitting outside."

    The door into the porch needs oiling as it speaks very badly. We think a hand rail should be fitted to one side of the stairs as they are quite steep- isn’t one required for building regs? We did have a problem with the dish washer - the outlet pipe was blocked off but we managed to sort that problem out. Apart from these minor problems we thought the house was more than adequately furnished with lots of crockery, cutlery, utensils and pots and pans. Also the welcome package of milk, Bara Brith and snacks was a nice surprise and very thoughtful of the owners. Thank you once again.

  • "We stayed at Glyn Awel for a long weekend on Easter Bank Holiday."

    We had an amazing stay, and as a large family group of 12 there was ample space for all of us. The cottage was easy to get to, beautifully refurbished and the kitchen was fully stocked with adequate utensils and cutlery for cooking and serving. There are washing, drying and ironing facilities. On our arrival there was a hamper of tea, coffee, cakes and biscuits provided, which was a very nice gesture. The views are amazing and we found good walking trails nearby. The Watkins trail to climb Snowdonia is only a short walk from the cottage and there is also a nearby coffee shop. However, there were some issues during our stay. There was no welcome pack which normally includes instructions on how to use the heating system, kitchen appliances or details on refuse and recycling. There was only one bin in the kitchen which quickly filled up and there were no additional bin bags provided so we had to source our own. The bins outside the property were already completely full. The dishwasher did not work. The microwave was temperamental and on the last day the kettle stopped working. The shower room did not have a lock on the door and did not shut properly. The fan in the shower room was also very loud. In one of the double bedrooms we could not use the lamps as the lamp plugs did not reach the sockets, and there was no extension leads. There were no logs, kindling or fire lighters supplied for the stoves, this really should have been mentioned or a small starter pack would have been nice. The driveway is a bit steep and covered in loose shale stones. One of our cars struggled to enter the drive when it was wet. Also you need to be extra careful when entering and exiting the drive to avoid scraping the bottom of the cars. Despite these minor issues, it would not deter us from returning or recommending Glyn Awel to others.

The property

Beddgelert 3.7 miles.

Glyn Awell is a welcoming holiday cottage resting remotely in the picturesque Welsh countryside in Nant Gwynant, within the Eryri National Park.

This property offers spacious bedrooms, a pleasantly designed interior and plenty of nearby sights, making it an ideal escape for a group of family and friends seeking a quiet retreat in the countryside.

Upon entering your new abode, you will find yourself undisturbed by the bustling roads and instead, warmly welcomed by the inviting living room which encourages you to put your feet up in front of the TV while the woodburning stove keeps you all toasty.

At dinnertime, the chefs among you can take to the kitchen to whip up a delightful feast for all before gathering around the dinner table to tuck in and share some friendly conversation along with a glass of wine.

After your days of exploring the lush countryside, take a load off and indulge yourself with a hot soak whether that be a dip in the tub or a much-needed rinse in the shower.

In the warmer months, the enclosed patio invites your party outside to take in the rays of sunshine and partake in some alfresco-style dining.

When the sun sets, the fresh linen of the bedrooms will gently guide you to your rest at the end of the day.

Once you're all ready to explore, why not check out the nearby Llyn Gwynant Lake which is a tranquil destination right on your doorstep possessing mountain views and spots for boating?

Other popular spots are Miner’s Track, National Trust - Craflwyn and Beddgelert and Snowdon.

There are other activities on offer in the area at the National Slate Museum for those interested in history and Y Bistro yn yr Hebog for a lovely meal out.

Find your way to the coastal town of Porthmadog and enjoy the spectacular Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways along with PanIQ Rooms for a fun-filled family day out.

Treat you and your loved ones to this memorable escape at Glyn Awell.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £600.

About the location


Porthmadog 7.7 miles; Caernarfon 12.8 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, welcoming pubs, including Saracens Head and the Royal Goat, and restaurants, centred around the Afon Glaslyn river. A leisurely stroll along the river will take you to the Aberglaslyn Pass, one of North Wales’s 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. From here, you can easily access Porthmadog, home to a Maritime Museum, the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway, the Black Rock Llamas, and Porthmadog Golf Club, as well as Borth y Gest, where you can hike along the Beach Path, spend a day at the beach, and dine at the popular Black Rock Beach Club with stunning sea views, onwards to the Llyn Peninsula and beyond, this is an ideal location for a Welsh holiday.
