STS Reference Number: 2058
STS Grade: 4
A spacious cottage with a double frontage on Gwynant Street, Beddgelert. A special feature is the elevated balcony to the rear overlooking the river Glaslyn and the mountians of Snowdonia. Located within 500m of the iconic hump back bridge in the centre of the picturesque village of Beddgelert, it has a choice of river, lake and mountain walks from the doorstep. The cottage is very comfortable with an open fire in the lounge/diner, fully fitted kitchen with all appliances and a sunny balcony and patio with access down to the river. Walking to the village centre is only a short 5 minute riverside walk to a bistro, inns and village shops and another 5 minutes to the Welsh Highland Railway station. The cottage is in an excellent location for exploring Snowdonia and there are plenty of sandy beaches at Porthmadog (8ml) and Harlech (15ml), castles at Harlech, Criccieth (15ml) and Caernarfon (17ml). Beautiful Betws y Coed and the Conwy valley is a spectacular 30min drive. National Trust's Bodnant Garden Conwy RSPB nature reserve 45mins and Chester only 2 hours. A very central location and at the foot of Snowdon too.

Please note: A returnable £100 Good Housekeeping bond will be required before the owner can give the key. Our experience shows that this procedure results in an all round better holiday for everyone, as our holiday home owners are prepared to offer better quality properties for guests and all guests fully respect the property and so make manageable the process of preparing the property for the next guest's full enjoyment. Nearly all our guests are respectful people where the bond is fully returned. We have a high proportion of returning guests who are appreciative of our service and the high standard of accommodation that we strive to provide. Please be assured that STS is a Visit Wales/Welsh Assembly Government Accredited agency. Thank you in advance for your co-operation.
