STS Reference Number: 2007
STS Grade 4
Situated in the charming mountain village of Beddgelert, which is said to derive its name either from the faithful hound of Prince Llewellyn, or that of a Celtic missionary, depending on the view of history you subscribe to. What is not in dispute is that this terraced stone cottage built in the 1800s for men working in the local slate and copper mines, at the confluence of the Glaslyn and Colwyn Rivers, affords a sumptuous base camp to enable walkers, climbers, trail bikers, fishermen and golfers whatever their ability to enjoy all that Snowdonia National Park has to offer.
This Grade II listed cottage has been sympathetically yet lovingly restored and extended to provide a contemporary kitchen, through lounge with slate hearth and wood burning stove. There is a comfortable double bedroom with mountain views and to the rear, a twin bedded room with an en-suite WC and hand wash basin.
