All accommodation is set within 4.5 acres of privately owned mountainside woodland and only 300 metres from the start of The Watkin Path to the top of Snowdon, as well as opposite one of the most beautiful rivers in North Wales and between Lake Dinas and Lake Gwynant, our accommodation of all types is the ideal base from which to explore Snowdonia with its spectacular scenery and fascinating mix of mountains, lakes, woodland and streams. The whole site and all accommodation is dog friendly (small nightly charge made).

A short drive away you will find the pretty mountain village of Beddgelert with shops, restaurants and pubs. The village is famous for its legend of Prince Llewellyn and his dog Gelert and a walk to Gelerts Grave is a must during your stay. The beautiful sandy beaches such as Black Rock Sands (dog friendly all year round), Caernarfon Castle, Snowdon Mountain Railway and the Festiniog & Welsh Highland Railway are within easy reach.

For those wanting adventure, Snowdonia is THE place to come; not including the obvious climb up Snowdon, the highest peak in England and Wales, on our doorstep you can also take part in Rock Climbing, Kayaking, Gorge Walking, Canyoning, Pot Holing to name but a few.
