Latest reviews | Events in Beddgelert | 10 Places to Stay

Beddgelert is to be found in the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales at the confluence of the Rivers Colwyn and Glaslyn. It is said that the town was originally settled by Christian missionaries around 700AD and that a hermitage was established on the west bank of the Afon Colwyn. But it is the 13th century that made Beddgelert famous. Llywelyn, Prince of Wales, had a palace here and he had a faithful dog called Gelert and one day he went hunting without his faithful dog. On Llewelyn’s return he found Gelert stained and smeared with blood and his son’s cot was empty, the floor and bedclothes covered in blood. Wild with rage and thinking that the dog had attacked his son he plunged his sword into the dog and killed him. As he withdrew the sword he heard his son cry and a search revealed that his son was unharmed but nearby lay the body of a mighty wolf that Gelert had slain. It is just outside the village where there is today a memorial to this sad tale. Beddgelert nestles in the valley and offers the visitor an excellent opportunity to enjoy the surrounding scenery, it is ideal for ramblers, mountain bikers or simply to sit, relax and just appreciate the beauty of the area.
