The self-catering cottage stands back a little from a country road, next to our own house, around 1.5 miles from the village of Beddgelert. We have furnished and equipped it to a standard that we would be delighted to find if we were searching for really special holiday accommodation. An inventory of contents will reassure you that we have thought of everything to ensure that your stay is a happy one. If you don't wish to be out and about every minute of every day, there are two colour televisions, a DVD player chess, Monopoly, Scrabble, jigsaws, interesting books and magazines, plenty of novels and good maps and guide books to the locality (one wall is covered by a huge 1:25,000 Ordnance Survey map of the whole of North Wales!). Should you return from the hills cold or wet, then enjoy a hot power shower or bath and central heating. Snuggle down in front of the open log fire with a hot drink and good music, with soft lighting from oil lamps and candles if you prefer.

You will enjoy lovely mountain views across wooded hillsides and sheep pastures. The river Glaslyn, with salmon and trout fishing and summer swimming flows from Snowdon just a couple of hundred metres away. Walk from the door into remote and beautiful hills , or take the Sherpa minibus that serves the Snowdon massif and catch a ride back to the door. Great castles - Harlech, Caernarfon and Cricieth are all within thirty minutes drive. A 'toy' railway steams into the hills to the biggest slate caverns in the world. (For a YouTube driver’s view video of the entire route from Porthmadog to Blaenau Ffestiniog, speeded up, click here. And for all railway enthusiasts, more great news: the newly-reinstated line from Porthmadog to Caernarfon, passing through the stupendous Pass of Aberglaslyn, actually swoops by Tywyn cottage’s garden, allowing guests the privilege of a track-side viewpoint as it steams past. Here’s another link to a speeded-up YouTube video of the driver’s view en-route to Rhyd Ddu (it passes the top of the cottage garden at 1m48s).

The amazing Italianate village of Portmeirion is close by, and the sandy beaches and rocky coves of Cardigan Bay. There are ancient copper mines in the hills behind us; one, Sygun, can be entered safely with a guide. We have riding stables down the lane, and you can explore forgotten bridleways and woodland paths on horseback, lunching perhaps at a country pub. Or - you can sit quietly and just read or doze by a beautiful tumbling mountain stream behind the cottage.

If you decide on a change from cooking in the well-equipped kitchen, we offer impartial advice on good eating places ranging from the Best Fish & Chip Shop in Wales (really!) to special places for celebration meals. The bustling, award-winning village of Beddgelert is close by, five minutes drive or twenty five-minutes adventurous walk by the river, and offers a wide choice of eating venues catering to the thousands of visitors attracted by its beautiful location, and fame as winning village in the Wales-in-Bloom, Britain-in-Bloom and Europe-in-Bloom competitions!

It is difficult to know where to stop. We have lived here for thirty five years and have climbed, walked, cycled, driven, camped and barbecued just about everywhere. We know and love Snowdonia better than most. We will be delighted to share our enthusiasm and knowledge with you. If you ask.

We look forward to meeting you.

Best Wishes,

Anne and Alan Heason
