About Beudy'r Gelli Bothy

Forget the tent next time you go away and stay in this rustic stone bothy with views over nearby Dinas Emrys.

Nestled in the heart of Snowdonia, this restored stone building is surrounded by two private meadows joined by a footbridge over a small river. Beudy’r Gelli Bothy, a simple but beautiful dwelling that comfortably sleeps up to 10 guests, is a fun alternative to camping.

With nature’s delights at every turn, you’ll need to pack your boots rather than your gadgets. Discover the diverse landscapes that are right on your doorstep. From towering mountain peaks to stunning natural lakes and sandy stretches of coastline, there are many picturesque walks for beginner strolls and advanced hikes. There is a lovely walk up Dinas Emrys from outside the bothy which is steeped in legend.

After a long day of exploring, take in the sounds of rustling trees and birdsong or look up at the dark evening sky scattered with stars. For a change of scenery, head to the quaint village of Begggelert only a 15-minute walk from the bothy. Or why not check out the local pub that is only a two-mile drive away?

Make the most of your unique location and discover the hive of activity that surrounds you. Highlights include Zip World Adventures, to Bounce Below and Surf Snowdonia. Or if you’re nature and history lover head off to RSPB Conway, Black Rock Sands, Penryhn Castle or Craflwyn Estate.

Notes for guests

First Floor Mezzanine: Please do not use the first floor mezzanine area sleeping as it is not permitted due to fire regulations.

Heating: There is a log burner in bothy 2 in the seating area which can be used. Guests will need to provide their own logs. There is no heating or electricity in bothy 1 where the bunk beds are located.

Bedding/linen: No mattresses, bedding or linen is provided. Guests should bring their own airbeds/sleeping mats, pillows, sleeping bags etc

Parking: There are 2 parking spaces located at the base of the field, 50m away from the bothy. This is the closest guests can park so cannot load and unload right outside the bothy. The space from the parking spaces is not lit so it is recommended to bring a torch if you arrive or leave when it is dark.

The track to the bothy is narrow and is not suitable for low slung vehicles. There are alternative places to park in the main National Trust car park at Craflwyn, however this is 300m from the bothy. When accessing the field that the bothy is located in, guests will travel past holiday cottage entrances so we ask politely that noise is kept to a minimum. The two fields are separated by a ford which we advise you not to take vehicles through. There is a footbridge for access.

Garden: There is no enclosed garden.

Dogs: We regret that we cannot accept dogs at this bothy.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
