Beddgelert is Snowdonia’s prettiest village and it nestles at the foot of mount Snowdon. It offers a range of amenities and includes a variety of tourist shops, along with pubs, restaurants, coffee shops and a very well stocked village store/post office.

By the river stands Gellerts grave which lends the village its name. According to legend, the stone monument marks the position of the final resting place of Prince Llewellyn’s faithful hound GELERT.

Beddgelert is a great starting point for relaxing riverside walks through to more strenuous hill/mountain hikes.

Beddgelert Forest lies about a mile to the north of the village and it offers some breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside. The forest is enjoyed by walkers, cyclists and horse riders alike. The Lôn Gwyrfai path is literally on your doorstep giving you access to a multitude of spectacular walks and cycle routes in the region, from the outskirts of Beddgelert to the peaks of Snowdon.

Within the forest lies Llyn Llewelyn, often referred to as the secret lake, a beautiful and peaceful stretch of water which is a great location for an afternoon picnic!!
