The North Wales region
Snowdonia National Park
Snowdonia National Park was established in 1951 and is the third largest of the 15 National Parks in the Uk. The Park covers 2,132 square km (823 square miles) and stretches from Cardigan Bay's High Water Mark in the west, to the Conwy Valley in the east and from the River Dyfi and its estuary in the south to the coast of Conwy Bay as far as Conwy in the north. The boundary map shows the extent of the National Park boundary.
The Snowdonia National Park takes its name from Snowdon which, at 1085m (3,560 feet), is the highest peak in Wales and England. In Welsh, Snowdon used to be called Yr Wyddfa Fawr (the Great Tomb or the Great Throne) or Carnedd y Cawr (the Cairn of the Giant). Nowadays it is simply called Yr Wyddfa, but the various names bear testament to a land steeped in legends, history and tradition. This is the ancient Kingdom of Gwynedd, the heart of Wales and the stronghold of 'Cymraeg', the Welsh Language. The Welsh name for the National Park is Eryri (The Highland).
There truly is something special about Beddgelert - the 'meeting' of the Colwyn and Gwynant rivers as they flow around majestic Snowdon. A beautiful, unspoiled village set in the heart of Snowdonia National Park, Beddgelert is a friendly place, and offers a wide range of attractions to the visitor, including good accommodation, cafes and restaurants, unusual shops, a National Park Information centre and historical attractions. Beddgelert is named after Gelert, Llywelyn Fawr's hound.
The purple heather covered slopes of the Snowdon foothills surrounds this terraced cottage in the village. Like most Cottages in this pretty location, Village Cottage is Grade II listed. The cottage has a light and airy modern feel with a large modern convenient kitchen and a spacious lounge. From the door there are many excellent walks, either up hills and mountains or along the rivers to mystical lakes. There are interesting pony treks locally, a copper mine to investigate, lakes to fish in, to boat upon, or picnic beside. This is a fine central location for enjoying both the mountains and the sea as the coast at Porthmadog is only 7 ml down the valley to the golden sandy beaches at Black Rock Sands. Betws y Coed, Swallow Falls and Conwy valley 15 ml.
