About SygunA back-to-basic retreat nestled in the foothills of Snowdon, with a network of walking trails on the doorstep.
If you’re looking for an ideal place for some peace and quiet or somewhere to stretch your legs on one of the many walking trails nearby, this is the perfect place for you.
Walk through the front door into an open-plan living space. This basic accommodation doesn’t have a kitchen, but a microwave and kettle are provided. There’s also a shower room with an electric shower, sink and toilet located on the ground floor. On the mezzanine level there is one double bed and one single. Outside, you’ll find a few bench seats that are for shared use with guests that could be staying in the other boltholes next to you – Dinas Emrys and Aran.
The main car park is approximately 200 metres away from the front door where you can load and unload your car. Please note you may experience some noise from the farm traffic during the day and there could occasionally be grazing animals in the nearby field.
Sygun is a walker’s paradise. There are many routes in the area including the path up to Snowdon, the highest summit in Wales, which can be accessed from the next village, Nant Gwynant. You’ll also be near the legendary trail of Dinas Emrys, and two large lakes, Llyn Gwynant and Llyn Dinas. For a change of scenery from the countryside, head to Porthmadog for the nearest beaches – approximately 10 miles away.
The small village of Beddgelert is less than a mile away with a range of pubs, tea rooms and a few local shops for you to explore. This quaint village is also known for its tourist attraction, Gelert’s Grave: the resting place of ‘Gelert’, the faithful hound of medieval Welsh Prince Llewelyn the Great.
