Tan y Graig is one of five stone terraced cottages on a raised walkway, the front overlooking a tea room and the back has the most breathtaking views of Snowdon. You can see the train going on its journey to the top of the mountain and the Welsh Highland railway literally past the back garden.
The cottage has a wooden floor in the living room and is carpeted throughout. It has a three seater settee, two arm chairs, dressing table and an open stone fireplace.
The staircase has a small landing with doors leading to two bedrooms and a toilet and shower room. The back twin bedroom has a double glazed door with steps going up to the back garden.
The kitchen is fully equipped with cooker, fridge freezer, microwave, coffee maker, washer and tumbler dryer and a good supply of cutlery, crockery, glassware and cooking utensils. There is fibre broadband and wifi.
Heating is by electric radiators and a cosy log burner in the living room with logs and coal purchased locally. All linen, towels and tea towels are provided. The electric is on a meter with a key - you can get your electric from the village post office or most shops and garages in the area. I leave a reasonable balance on the meter when you arrive and a welcome pack.
The village tea room, across from Tan y Graig, offers a selection of meals and snacks throughout the day, and also an all-day breakfast. Be assured of a warm welcome by the owners Menno and Emma. The village pub also offers a wide selection of meals and guest ales.
Rhyd Ddu is a quiet village on the A4085, about 3 miles north of Beddgelert, situated at the foot of Snowdon and its surrounding peaks. The Welsh Highland railway runs from Caernarfon to Porthmadoc passing through the village with a stop within walking distance of the cottage.
One of the routes up Snowdon - the Rhyd Ddu path - has its starting point in the village, and the Snowdon Ranger path is two miles away. Popular activities in the area are walking, climbing, mountain biking, pony trekking, fishing, golf and much more. Caernarfon is 9 miles away through impressive mountain scenery.
Bangor, Anglesey and Llandudno are about 30 minutes drive from the cottage.
