Wales Holiday Cottage

Delightful 2 Bedroom Self-Catering Cottage in Picturesque Rhyd Ddu, at the foot of Snowdon

The location of this cottage is truly magnificent, set within the Snowdonia National Park and close to a Special Area of Conservation and a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

Rhyd Ddu

Rhyd Ddu (meaning Black Ford) is a quaint, friendly little village nestled at the foot of Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales. It is ideally located for walking and hiking, as well as being a great base to explore all the great attractions and activities of the Snowdonia National Park. 

Set between the beautiful tourist village of Beddgelert and the Picturesque town of Caernarfan, there is a bus service to both and also the Highland Railway during the high season. Between these locations you can get everything you need, from the local shop in Beddgelert to the supermarkets in Caernarfan.

Famous with walkers, Rhyd Ddu is the start location for a number of great walks, including the Rhyd Ddu path leading to the summit of Snowdon as well as paths to Moel Hebog, Yr Aran and the Nantlle Ridge as well as other less known walks. Beddgelert forest is within walking distance with beautiful paths to take either on foot or by mountain bike. 

There is also a lovely little real ale pub and tea room in the village, both within a few yards of Cefnan Cottage.

The Welsh Highland Railway's Rhyd Ddu stop is around 200 yards from the cottage. The steam train travels through the most beautiful scenery in the area on it's way to Caernarfan, Beddgelert, Porthmadog, etc.

Snowdonia National Park

On the west coast of Britain, the Snowdonia National Park covers over 800 square miles and is the largest National Park in Wales. As well as being home to the highest mountain in England and Wales, it is also home to the largest natural lake in Wales. 

The views and scenery are breath-taking, and if that's not enough, there's a wealth of attractions and activities, from outdoor pursuits to impressive castles, mining museums to picturesque villages and ancient legends, Snowdonia really does offer a lot.
