Lovely place to stay in Beddgelert just for 2. Cosy and equipped adequately, if with a slightly elderly washing machine and dishwasher. More than made up by the perfect location right by the river with the outside terrace a great place to relax in the evenings.

My partner and I enjoyed our stay at Riverside Cottage. We found it well equipped and comfortable with a delightful dining area overlooking the river. Sadly as the weather was wet nearly all week we only occasionally sat outside but it was lovely to observe the water flowing fast past our patio, and windows. As it was colder in the evening we used the efficient heaters to good effect. My only niggle was that the front kitchen window and door outside looked a bit grimy on arrival, but the amount of rain perhaps affected this. I think we managed to follow the recycling instructions. After our visit the owner excelled his duty by finding my IPad down the side of the sofa, where I had unfortunately left it. He kindly posted it to me well wrapped, to my considerable relief and gratitude.
