  • "Loved the cottage reminds me of the fairy tale little red riding hood just needed smoke coming out the chimney."

    The secure boundaries was safe for the dog and the little woodland was lovely just like living in a wood.

  • "We fell in love with this place the minute we walked in."

    The garden was so inviting for an explore. The water fall at the back was an amazing experience, although you must be very vigilant with the dogs, but we were warned about that any way. So knew what to expect. Perfect location for walking from the property and seeing the village . Good working Central heating and plenty of hot water with 2 showers and three toilets The kitchen could do with a bit of maintenance and perhaps a deep clean when the season has finished. Would definitely book and stay here again

  • "If you want a very modern up to date holiday home then this one isn't for you."

    BUT if you love quirky, comfortable accommodation with superb showers, easy settees, and a most fantastic garden then chose this one. We had a lovely stay here with our two dogs, last week and loved it. If we come to this area again we would certainly stay here.

  • "Lovely little cottage."

    There was the lack of a welcome pack or some basic essentials in the property however, lovely position. The river at the bottom of the garden can be fast running, I don't think that this was stressed enough in the description. Would recommend this cottage and this lovely location.

  • "A quirky cottage in beautiful grounds with a fast flowing river running alongside."

    The cottage which appears to be constructed of plywood with cement facia is now beginning to see its age. The kitchen is in real need of an upgrade mainly work top and cupboards. The sink tap often falls apart and water power runs dry. The main bathroom with shower is also in need of a revision and clean up and has a Faust smell to it. The main living room is ok spacious with wooden flooring and dining for 4 but the TV IS in real need of replacement and poor quality especially on those often raining days common to Snowdonia. In the corner of the main room is an entrance with dicy slopping steps to two double bedrooms. Yes they are small with left one much too small and really only suitable for kids. It has also a boxed in shower toilet unit which is only suitable for children unless your a size 10 adult. By way we found the shower in need of repair as it leaked onto the floor which we had to soak up after each use. Leading directly out of the main room you enter a small conservatory with small steps and shin into the back garden with chairs and tables. In good weather you can sit in comfort and eat and wine away the time in pleasant surroundings. The charge for the cottage does not match the quality provided to be honest coupled with many faults and poor quality furnishings. The number of steps in the cottage can be a bit dicy if your uncertain or elderly on your feet so can be annoying. It’s a nice location with on site parking and if good weather and your out and about eating and walking it’s ok.

The property

Enjoying an idyllic riverside setting in the heart of the village of Beddgelert, Snowdonia, is this inviting, single-storey cabin, Can Yr Afon.

With direct access to the river, off-road parking, and a garden patio, Can Yr Afon is a magnificent escape for four people and their canine companion looking to spend some quality time in the Snowdonia National Park.

After a day of fell walking, kick off your walking attire and make yourself at home in the sitting room, complete with a selection of books, ample seating, an electric fire, and TV for entertainment.

Move into the kitchen, where the house chef can impress the group with a home-cooked classic, before gathering at the dining table and digging in.

Keep on top of your laundry with a washing machine and tumble dryer on hand, whilst each of the bedrooms feature double beds and en-suite facilities for convenience.

The real highlight of this home is the garden,south facing, offering a lawned area with direct access to the river and a patio space with furniture, perfect for alfresco dining or simply sipping on your favourite tipple as you listen to the river run by.

The gardens and woodland surrounding this Beddgelert holiday home provide peace and tranquillity, yet the cottage is only a short stroll into the centre of Beddgelert, home to a choice of shops, pubs, and cafés.

There are miles of walking tracks around, some starting from outside the door of this Beddgelert cottage, sure to be appreciated by your four-legged friend!

Keen mountain bikers are in luck as there are plenty of fantastic routes cutting through the National Park, whilst those seeking something more leisurely can hop on board the Welsh Highland Steam Railway which runs through the village taking you to Porthmadog on the coast or to the royal and historic town of Caernarfon with its majestic castle will appeal.

Further afield, the delights of the Isle of Anglesey await, including several stunning beaches, historic towns and castles and excellent eateries, whilst the royal town of Caernarfon is also worth a visit, where you can find attractions such as its World Heritage fortress and castle, several golf courses, and the beauty of the Victoria Dock.

Escape the rush of normality and uncover a truly relaxing break at Can Yr Afon.

Note: Please supervise children in the garden as there is a river running along the bottom

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.
