Beddgelert and Things to Do and See
This non-smoking bed and breakfast (B&B) accommodation is located in the village of Beddgelert in Snowdonia, North Wales.
Set at the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, this is an ideal holiday location for exploring Snowdonia and the rest of North Wales.
Glas y Marian is a detached dormer bungalow situated in well established gardens, on the Caernarfon Road, a few minutes stroll from the village centre.
Beddgelert is an award winning village, having been voted the prettiest village in Europe in 1997. It is ideally situated for walking, whether up Snowdon, or just an easy flat walk, along the Aberglaslyn pass.
The village has a number of pubs, restaurants and cafes – our ice cream parlour is famous and a visit is a must! We have a number of craft shops, a village store and post office. Rupert Bear fans will recognise the area, which was used by Alfred Bestall in his illustrations.
A short drive towards Porthmadog, will take you to a good golf course at Morfa Bychan, and some lovely sandy beaches. The area caters for many activities including walking, climbing, mountain biking and birdwatching (there is an osprey nesting site nearby).
View from the terrace
You can also enjoy the stunning local scenery (Snowdonia is famous for its lakes and mountains), or visit some of the numerous local attractions.
These include historic castles such as Caernarfon Castle and Harlech Castle, or the steam railways such as the Snowdon Mountain Railway, Ffestiniog Railway, and the Welsh Highland Railway which is being extended and will run through Beddgelert when completed. The famous village of Portmeirion is also within easy reach.
So what ever you enjoy, you are sure to find something of interest. At the start of the day, or after a day spent exploring North Wales, you can sit on the front terrace and enjoy the mountain views, or watch the world go by.
