  • "When I arrived at Waterfall cottage I thought I’d died and gone to heaven."

    The views are breathtaking. I was met by one of the owners Sue who was very welcoming and extremely helpful with lots of good advice. There was everything in the cottage that you could think of, including milk, butter, jam, coffee, tea etc.. The cottage is ideally situated for visiting numerous places and beautifully remote at the same time. I really cannot recommend the cottage highly enough! The 5 acre field adjacent is ideal for exercising dogs as well as all the forestry tracks for those who enjoy walking. I will definitely return with my two springer spaniels.

  • "Lovely cottage small but perfect for two, made very welcome by Sue and Gary."

    The cottage was spotless and the welcome pack a nice gesture. Views from the property garden are wonderful and the area perfect for walking and sightseeing. The dog was very welcome and loved having the field to run in, and the treats that were left for him. Highly recommend this for a quiet holiday with easy access to North Wales and beautiful village walks. Would love to visit again soon.

  • "What an amazing cottage."

    So cozy and homely. The location was beyond beautiful. 5 acres of land for the dogs on site. Mountains and lakes to explore with incredible views on the doorstep. Tranquility at its best. We had an amazing holiday and couldn’t recommend a stay here enough. A short drive from nearby towns for beaches, fish and chips and more exploring. Sue and Garry were so friendly and helpful. We really did have a fantastic time!

  • "We LOVED our stay in this picturesque hillside cottage."

    It isn't large, but it had everything needed for 2 of us and our greyhound. The location, across the valley from Snowdon, is fantastic, with great walks on our doorstep, and easy access to many more beautiful locations. Sue was very friendly, kind and thoughtful. We would love to return as soon as we can.

  • "Waterfall Cottage is a bijou cottage for two (plus dog) with bags of character."

    Set in a beautiful location off the beaten track with lots of walks on the doorstep and stunning views of Snowdonia. The cottage was well equipped and comfortable. The lovely hosts Sue and Gary were very keen to share their knowledge of the local area including its history and they made sure that we had everything we needed for our stay. The cottage was 2 miles from Beddgelert and it was in a perfect spot for exploring the coast, railways and castles of this part of Wales. We were very lucky with the weather but had come prepared for showers. We did experience difficulty eating out in the area due a shortage of hospitality staff, so would recommend that visitors are prepared for self catering, which is easy in the well catered kitchen. A great holiday and we plan to return.

    But I had a very wonderful Holliday stay in the cottage. We will do it again, this time armed with a bit more knowledge about Snowdonia. and I really want to know more about this area I can say we will be back. I can't really say that it reached my expectations. 'cos I really didn't know what to expect. But overall I had a ball. Beautiful part of the world I would say and I've bin around. having spent most of my youth in the Navy.

    The location itself is perfect, just minutes from Beddgelert and the property has everything you can ask for. Finally the owners Sue and Garry are the nicest of people and couldn't do more to make your stay a happy one.

  • "Cottage was very comfortable and clean in a lovely part of the country with forest walks on the doorstep."

    Sue and Garry were on hand if needed without being intrusive. Slight downside for us was the fact the field was at the side of the two properties which meant we couldn't relax because we couldn't see our dogs without going out with them into a lovely, enclosed field that bordered more onto the other property. Overall, a most enjoyable stay and would definitely return to the area again. A few leaflets on local attractions and a guest book would have been welcome.

  • "The accommodation on the whole was great - in particularly, the remote location was stunning."

    Perfect for walking and exploring the area around Snowdon. Beddgelert is a pretty little village too. The owners of the property were friendly and helpful. One disappointment was that the WiFi was not working throughout our stay - we had specifically chosen a property with WiFi. The cottage itself was cosy and clean. Perhaps an idea would be to get a blind for the larger window as there is a lot of light that enters in the early hours of a summer morning. Similarly, the security light shines through the windows on the door. All in all, a great holiday.

The property

A semi-detached, stone-built cottage set within the majestic Snowdonia National Park, on the outskirts of Beddgelert.

Built from stone dating back 400 years, Waterfall Cottage promises to be a charming escape to an area carved by a unique culture and history which is complemented by natural beauty, wildlife and a wealth of picturesque villages.

Perfect for a couple, this characterful cottage houses everything you and your loved one could possibly need for a romantic retreat.

Be welcomed into the spacious bedroom/sitting room, where the warmth of the electric fire fills the room with tranquillity during those chilly winter months and the charming exposed brick wall and the exposed beams reflect the history of the building.

Look forward to curling up on the sofa and tune into the TV to truly unwind after a day exploring the outstanding location, before stepping into the well-equipped kitchen where you will find all the essentials to cater for yourselves for a week-long break.

The property is completed by the shower room with shower, basin and WC.

During the warmer months, couples can spend a moment or two upon the patio area where views of the Beddgelert Forest can be enjoyed whilst soaking up the sun.

If you can tear yourself away from this quaint spot, venture to the centre of Beddgelert, where you will find a selection of traditional pubs and eateries, as well as a choice of shops to explore.

For those feeling active, you will find a myriad of walking tracks from the doorstep of the cottage, which include the Beddgelert Forest and further afield are the mountain peaks of Glyder Fawr and Carnedd Llewelyn.

Alternatively, the cottage comes within striking distance to the beaches of Porthmadog, the castles of Conwy and Harlech and the famous Italianate village of Portmeirion.

Waterfall Cottage is a refreshing base for those looking to explore the location.

About the location


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.
