Unwind amongst the wooded foothills of Snowdon

Nant Gwynant is one of the most dramatic and beautiful valleys in Wales. It's northern slopes rise to the summit of our highest mountain, Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) and to the south lies the relatively undisturbed hills of Moel y Dyniewyd and the Moelwynion range.

The Afon Glaslyn river runs through two majestic lakes, Llyn Gwynant and Llyn Dinas, and below the picturesque village of Beddgelert, it tumbles down to sea-level through the positively Alpine Aberglaslyn Pass. The 200 acre Craflwyn estate is set in the heart of beautiful Snowdonia.

The area is steeped in legend: Dinas Emrys, where the famous Welsh dragon lies sleeping, is only a short walk away. There are great walks for all abilities, from a low-level pretty village stroll at Beddgelert to woodland walks and higher-level more strenuous walking.
