The Beddgelert Forest is 70 hectares of conifer and broadleaf trees in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park and within walking distance of Snowdon itself.
The Colwyn River runs through the site, allowing nature lovers the opportunity to spot an otter or a trout. Other local wildlife abounds, drawn by the diverse range of plants in the forest. Beddgelert village is a mile from the site, with pubs, a bistro, a cafe and several craft shops. You can also catch a train on the Welsh Highland Railway to Caernarfon and connections to Porthmadog or follow the footpath along the banks of the Glaslyn River to Beddgelert’s most famous historic feature: “Gelert’s Grave”. There is a shop on the site, selling groceries and camping equipment. Dogs are welcome on the site and there are toilets and showers available, along with electric hook-ups.
