  • “We have been coming to this cottage ...”
    We have been coming to this cottage and area for the past four years in a row and have already booked for next year, same cottage. We love it so much as it feels like home from home and the views are stunning. Can't wait for next year already

About the location


Beddgelert 3.5 miles; Porthmadog 11 miles; Portmeirion 13 miles.

Rhyd Ddu is a small 19th century Welsh slate quarry village located around 3.5 miles from Beddgelert. It is a very popular location for walkers as the Rhyd Ddu path is one of the many starting points used for the ascent on Mount Snowdon, and the Nantlle Ridge and Mynydd Mawr are also popular walks. The narrow gauge Welsh Highland Steam Railway between Caernarfon to Porthmadog also stops in the village and the railway station is popular with day trippers and rail enthusiasts alike. There is a popular, family run, real ale country inn and restaurant in the village. Nearby, 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. 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.
