Snowdon Cottage is located within stunning scenery. There are plenty of walks in the surrounding area and a beautiful walk around a lake, river and countryside in to Beddgelert (about 2-3 miles on flat terrain). Beddgelert is a very pretty village with plenty of places to eat and a village shop supplying a range of groceries.
Snowdon Cottage itself is excellently equipped and although built in traditional welsh stone has a very modern feel inside. Dogs are welcome also.
The owner (Claire) was very welcoming and extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble.
One warning is there is no phone signal at the cottage or nearby Beddgelert (although there is half way up Snowdon!) but there is wifi. To be honest it was nice not to be bothered by the phone!
We are definitely going to return to Snowdon Cottage. Our time went too quickly!

Beautiful cottage well equipped and cosy in a fabulous setting. Fabulous walks and Watkins path up Snowdon are all on the doorstep. Do yourself a favour and go!

“Lovely cottage is an ideal, scenic location. ”
Reviewed 12 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We recently enjoyed a week break at Snowdon Cottage.

We found it to be a lovely spacious cottage, filled with all the amenities you could need or want. Parking was ample, with enough room for our 4x4 and trailer for our kayaks.

The setting and location is perfect for exploring Snowdonia, and gives a nice feel of isolation without being TOO far removed from civilisation. Perfect.

The nearest village is Beddgelert, which is just under 3miles away, which has a selection of local and tourist shops, as well as a handful of pubs and placed to eat.

For supermarkets, there is a Tesco just over a 20min drive away in Porthmadog, or an ASDA and Morrison's little over 30mins away in Caernarfon.

Though maybe not to everyone's taste, I really enjoyed the lack of phone signal at the cottage. It really helps connect with the surroundings and nature without the distraction of notifications every 2 seconds.

It has to be said, that although this cottage is located very close to a path up Mount Snowdon, that path is the Watkins Path. This is known to be the hardest path up the mountain. If you're not of good/high fitness or an experienced climber, I would recommend a journey to one of the other 5 paths. The Llanberis one being the easiest (though longest), which also has a lovely railway that goes up to the summit as well.

Whilst staying here, I would also recommend a visit to the Sygun Copper Mine, which is located just under 2miles from the cottage.

All in all, a thoroughly lovely cottage in a beautiful, scenic location. Perfect for a break hiking and kayaking. If I'm ever in the area again, I would definitely look to rebook.

Lovely cottage in a really good location for exploring Snowdonia. Everything you could wish for. Loads of little extras. Thanks for the very nice wine! Loved the blue lights in the bathroom.

This was the most comfortable cottage we have stayed in, so practical and cosy, it had everything we needed, did not want for anything. Claire is so kind and friendly makes you feel so welcome, everything is so clean and well maintained. The surrounding area is wonderful to see no matter the weather, local to everything you want to see and do. Suitable for most people. This is a must stay!! Recommend Red Dragon to everyone looking for a great place to stay either short or long break.
