  • Joan

    “Loved the cottage reminds me of the fairy tale little red riding hood just needed smoke coming out the chimney.”

    The secure boundaries was safe for the dog and the little woodland was lovely just like living in a wood.

The property

Enjoying an idyllic riverside setting in the heart of the village of Beddgelert, Snowdonia, is this inviting, single-storey cabin, Can Yr Afon.

With direct access to the river, off-road parking, and a garden patio, Can Yr Afon is a magnificent escape for four people and their canine companion looking to spend some quality time in the Snowdonia National Park.

After a day of fell walking, kick off your walking attire and make yourself at home in the sitting room, complete with a selection of books, ample seating, an electric fire, and TV for entertainment.

Move into the kitchen, where the house chef can impress the group with a home-cooked classic, before gathering at the dining table and digging in.

Keep on top of your laundry with a washing machine and tumble dryer on hand, whilst each of the bedrooms feature double beds and en-suite facilities for convenience.

The real highlight of this home is the garden,south facing, offering a lawned area with direct access to the river and a patio space with furniture, perfect for alfresco dining or simply sipping on your favourite tipple as you listen to the river run by.

The gardens and woodland surrounding this Beddgelert holiday home provide peace and tranquillity, yet the cottage is only a short stroll into the centre of Beddgelert, home to a choice of shops, pubs, and cafés.

There are miles of walking tracks around, some starting from outside the door of this Beddgelert cottage, sure to be appreciated by your four-legged friend!

Keen mountain bikers are in luck as there are plenty of fantastic routes cutting through the National Park, whilst those seeking something more leisurely can hop on board the Welsh Highland Steam Railway which runs through the village taking you to Porthmadog on the coast or to the royal and historic town of Caernarfon with its majestic castle will appeal.

Further afield, the delights of the Isle of Anglesey await, including several stunning beaches, historic towns and castles and excellent eateries, whilst the royal town of Caernarfon is also worth a visit, where you can find attractions such as its World Heritage fortress and castle, several golf courses, and the beauty of the Victoria Dock.

Escape the rush of normality and uncover a truly relaxing break at Can Yr Afon.

Note: Please supervise children in the garden as there is a river running along the bottom

About the location


Porthmadog 7.7 miles; Caernarfon 12.8 miles.

The picturesque village of Beddgelert lies in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park at the foot of Mount Snowdon. Beddgelert is a bustling village with arts and craft shops, tea rooms, welcoming pubs, including Saracens Head and the Royal Goat, and restaurants, centred around the Afon Glaslyn river. A leisurely stroll along the river will take you to the Aberglaslyn Pass, one of North Wales’s most famous beauty spots. The Welsh Highland Steam Railway passes through the village on its journey from Porthmadog to Caernarfon. Beddgelert is famed for its monument to the Welsh Prince Llewelyn's dog, whom the Prince killed thinking it had attacked and killed his son, only to discover afterwards it had been defending his son from a savage wolf attack. From here, you can easily access Porthmadog, home to a Maritime Museum, the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway, the Black Rock Llamas, and Porthmadog Golf Club, as well as Borth y Gest, where you can hike along the Beach Path, spend a day at the beach, and dine at the popular Black Rock Beach Club with stunning sea views, onwards to the Llyn Peninsula and beyond, this is an ideal location for a Welsh holiday.
