The Watkin path up Snowdon is 3 miles away, with a lovely café at the start serving homemade food. The National Trust’s Craflwyn Hall has well signposted woodland walks and activities. The whole area is a walker’s paradise, for those wanting to go into the mountains or take things at a more leisurely pace.

Location

Beddgelert is a pretty village in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, situated on the banks of the river Glaslyn and below the slopes of Moel Hebog. It’s a great place to stay with lots of different things to see and do. Here are my top seven days out!

  • From the village take a short walk along the banks of the river to visit Gelert's grave. This marks the resting place of Gelert the faithful hound of welsh prince, Llewelyn the Great, discover the intriguing legend yourself whilst visiting the village.
  • The superb Welsh Highland Railway runs through Beddgelert on its way from Caernarfon to Porthmaog. Discover the whole journey or just short sections with perhaps a linear walk.
  • Glaslyn ice creams are a must have for anyone passing through Beddgelert. For those staying, Hebog Café serves good food during the day and evening with seating by the river. Caffi Gwynant a few miles away serves fantastic homemade and local goodies.
  • You can rent bikes in Beddgelert and cycle up the traffic free Lon Gwyrfai cycle path to Rhydd Ddu, a lovely ride, easier if you put the bikes on the train and cycle back down!
  • Visit the award winning Sygun Copper Mines where you can take a self-guided tour into the heart of the mines to discover this amazing piece of industrial heritage.
  • Moel Hebog dominates the skyline of Beddgelert and is a good walk for the experienced walker. A couple of miles up the valley is the Watkin Path, one of the main paths up Snowdon.
  • If you are feeling brave there’s plenty of wild swimming to be had. The Glaslyn river itself is popular, or a little up the valley on the way up Snowdon are the incredible crystal clear pools alongside the Watkin Path. Or there’s Llyn Gwynant for lake swimming and water sports.
