Hebog House Beddgelert 4 Stars
House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Hebog House is a spacious Scandinavian style house in a quiet peaceful location right on the edge of the village but just a short stroll away from what is on offer in Beddgelert centre. It has a 4 STAR ACCREDITATION with Visit Wales. The house was built in 1979, and some of the style of that period is reflected in the eclectic interior design. The light airy accommodation is situated over 4 half floors, although all living accommodation is on the ground floor. It's unlikely you will have seen a house with such an interesting layout. Free Wi-Fi is available.
Hebog House is situated on a private road with a private frontage, undercover seating area to front door. Entrance hall to the lower ground floor has a spacious area for coats, hiking equipment, golf clubs, fishing tackle etc. The double bedroom and shower room with WC is also situated on the lower ground floor.
On the ground floor is a large sitting room with a wood burning stove and full width patio doors overlooked only by Moel Hebog, access from here to the lovely private patio garden. At the end of the garden, below ground level passes the narrow gauge WHR steam trains en-route Caernarfon - Porthmadog throughout the summer season.
Our extensive bookshelves are full of books, games, DVDs and CDs for all ages and interests.
The open plan dining room also opens out into the garden. A fully fitted kitchen and utility room is complete with all the usual appliances including a coffee making bar.
On the first floor is a roomy bathroom with WC, corner bath and shower over.
The second floor has two twin bedded bedrooms with the best views in the house, and a large sitting area on the galleried landing has plenty of room for a travel cot.

The North Wales region
At the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, Wales' tallest peak Snowdon and it's mountain neighbours make up one of Britains best loved landscapes.
Yes there's challenging climbing for the enthusiast, but well signposted footpaths mean that most of Snowdonia's summits can be conquered by anyone with a good pair of walking boots, oh and a lot of common sense!
The area is blessed with amazing places,the spectacular Llyn Peninsula, an area of outstanding beauty. Famous for hill and mountain walking, water sports, off road cycling, fishing, golf, photography, bird watching, horse riding. A popular attraction is the Snowdon Mountain Railway, the Festiniog Railway and the recently resurrected Welsh Highland Railway. Wonderful beaches at Porthmadog, Borth-y-Gest, Dinas and many more. There are many seaside activities within a short distance for all ages.
Angelesy, Llanddudno, Conwy, Bodnant Gardens, National Trust properties and many castles are at your disposal. Whatever the weather there is always something to do.
Beddgelert is described by VistWales Tourism as the 'Jewel in the Crown' of Snowdonia. In a protected conservation area - it is surounded by some of the most stunning scenery in Britain. The Snowdon Mountain Range dominates the skyline, and the Glaslyn and Colwyn rivers meet near the ancient bridge in the centre of the village. Walking through the valley alongside the river is particulalry stunning, surounded all around by mountains the views are different with every season and weather conditions. Although a small village, Beddgelert boasts a wealth of eateries, a village shop, post office, a variety of unusual gift shops, and you can rely on a cool refreshing drink at one of the locals after a long day on the mountains! The area is best known as an outdoor playground. Beddgelert has a Tourist Information Centre, where you can plan your holiday and make the most of all on offer,it also has internet access there. A playground/playingfield for children is always good value.
Christmas in Beddgelert is very special - the white topped mountains always give that wonderful Christmassy feeling, and the New Year celebrations take place on Beddgelert bridge where there is fun for all.
NEW TO BEDDGELERT is the recently laid footpath from Beddgelert Station to Rhyd Ddu, a great 7km walk through Beddgelert Forest, you can then catch the train at Rhyd Ddu Station back to Beddgelert, a great day out.

"Lovely home from home with views"
We thoroughly enjoyed our wintry week at Hebog House, making use of the wood burning stove, jigsaws, books, dvds, maps and guides. The house is extremely well equipped and beautifully decorated throughout. The house feels interesting becuase of its layout and makes the most of the views in the living room especially. We were cosy and happy to stay in when the rain came down, but when it was dry we were in an excellent locaiton to walk Snowdon and Hebog which was just outside the back door! Our teenagers/Dad loved the crazy climb session in Caernarvon one rainy afternoon, and the beach near Criccieth called Black Rock Sands was spectacular.
Thank you so much for the review. We were so pleased you all enjoyed your stay at Hebog House - We recognise we have a responsibility to our guests to provide comfortable and workable accomodation as a part of their overall holiday experience. Yvonne & Patrick

"Comfortable & spacious house in scenic location"
The house is modern and comfortable, on the edge of a small estate of similarly styled properties. The Welsh Highland (steam) Railway passes the end of the garden in a cutting and a footpath alongside leads onto the lower slopes of Moel Hebog, a medium sized mountain. The layout is correctly described as unusual with few internal doors. All the bedrooms and bathrooms have doors but the rest of the house is one extended living space from the entrance hall to the lounge/diner/kitchen/utility room and second floor landing. These areas are separated by stairs and curtains but loud noises in the living area will not be isolated. It sounds a bit odd but we did like the layout although if you have a toddler, as we did, a portable barrier to close off the stairs is advisable.
The fixtures, fittings and appliances were good quality and all in working order. A total of three keys were provided, one each for front, back and patio door so groups can go off independently.
Something that caught us out (although not really a comment on the house) is that currently the only mobile network with coverage in Beddgelert is Orange, so if you need to keep in touch while there better get an Orange mobile or PAYG SIM.

"Excellent well equipped house in great location"
The house was well represented by the website details but was even better in reality. The house was very tastefully decorated and well maintained. We went with grandparents and the ground floor bedroom and bathroom was ideal for them. The layout of the house, on four levels, was very interesting but also practical. The equipment supplied(eg the coffee maker) was some of the best we have seen in rented holiday accommodation. The garden was small but fine for sitting out in the evening. The steam train occasionally passes by feet away which made for added interest!
I didn't read the website/contract details properly so had a mix up about whether towels were supplied. If you want them you need to specify when you book
The car parking was a bit tight but we had no problems. The house is ideally located for walking into Beddgellert and the village is well worth a look-the ice cream parlour is excellent. We only ate out once in the evening, at the Saracen's Head, this has been recently refurbished and when we went had a limited menu but the food was good value. Beddgellert is well situated for trips to the coast or Snowdonia.
Overall we would definitely book again.
