Local Attractions


There are a number of golf courses within easy reach of the inn, including the famous Royal St. David’s Club at Harlech.


For the angler there is excellent fishing in the rivers and lakes surrounding Beddgelert, where salmon and sea trout are to be found.


Beddgelert is fortunate in having two unusual railway systems close by - the mountain railway in the peak of Snowdonia and the narrow-gauge railway running from Porthmadog to Tyn-y-Bwlch, which is approximately nine miles long and an endless source of interest to people of all ages.

Beddgelert Station is one of the most important locations on the Welsh Highland Railway, and the new station is currently under construction. Station access will be pedestrian only, and the station is being built out of sight of the main village.

The Sygun Copper Mine has now re-opened to visitors - only a mile from the centre of Beddgelert, it is a pleasant walk or a short drive away; and the slate mining caves at Blaenau Ffestiniog can be visited.

The mountains of Snowdonia


Whether you are a mountaineer, a hiker or someone who just enjoys a leisurely walk there is something for everyone here, ranging from Snowdonia and the more severe climbs to the short walk to Gelert’s grave in the fields behind the inn. The area has long been used as a training centre for mountaineers, and some of the views from the hills and mountains are truly awe-inspiring.
