About Llyndy Bothy

Try camping in a 'stone tent' in this rustic bothy in the heart of Snowdonia.

This very simple, lovingly restored building offers basic, rustic accommodation ideal for walkers needing an over-night stop. Located in the heart of Snowdonia, Llyndy bothy is only a 15 minute walk from the Watkin path – considered to be the toughest route to the summit of Snowdon.

The bothy consists of a single downstairs room with a sink and cold-water tap (not drinking water) and two double-bed sleeping platforms. Two more single-sleeping platforms are located in the loft area, accessed via a ladder. There is a toilet in a neighbouring outbuilding but there are no other facilities. Guests will need to bring their own airbeds, sleeping mats and bedding and cooking facilities.

Surrounded by meadow land, and with views over nearby Llyn Dinas, Llyndy Bothy offers an idyllic retreat from modern life. There are lovely walks in the area – the pretty village of Beddgelert is only a 4 mile walk away with Sygun copper mine en route. If you are after some more adrenaline-fuelled adventure you can find that nearby too, with Zip World adventures, Bounce Below, Surf Snowdonia or Zip World Fforest Adventures to name a few.

Notes for guests

Heating: No heating is provided. 

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

Lighting: Lighting is powered by solar panels therefore the lights may not always work. Guest should bring their own lighting and torches.

Parking: There is space for one car next to the first gate for Llyndy Farm at the base of the field, 50 metres away from the bothy. The route from the parking to the bothy is unlit and uneven so you will need a torch.  

Garden: There is no garden, but the bothy is surrounded by meadowland.

Hazards: The cold water tap in the bothy is not drinking water so will need to be boiled before consuming. The first floor of the bothy should not be used for young children as the access is via a ladder.

Dogs: We regret that we cannot accept dogs at this bothy due to its location on a working farm.

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 (stated on the cottage's webpage). 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.
