Everyone loves Beddgelert and its enviable location. The picturesque stone-built village is the ideal base for exploring all the classic sights and beauty spots – Aberglaslyn Pass to the south, Nant Gwynant to the east, Snowdon to the north. Historic cottage of Tŷ Isaf is now a National Trust shop selling local crafts and produce. Nearby Rhyd Ddu, connected by a walking/cycling path, is a great starting point for a walk to the summit of Snowdon. Or go underground at the Sygun Copper Mine, also close by. It’s a popular family attraction with above-ground facilities too, including a children’s adventure playground and new bouncy castle. National Trust’s Craflwyn Estate (an activity, special interest and conference centre) is opposite Sygun on the road to Nant Gwynant. Both Craflwyn and the local tourist information centre have exhibitions on the Princes of Gwynedd. The village is one of the stop-off points on the Welsh Highland Railway from Caernarfon to Porthmadog.
