The Cwellyn Arms is situated in the Village of Rhyd Ddu, at the foot of Mount Snowdon, on the A4085 Caernarfon to Beddgelert road 4 miles from Beddgelert, in the Snowdonia National Park, North Wales.
Rhyd Ddu overlooks the sparkling clear waters of Llyn y Gadair, Llyn Cwellyn and the majestic western slopes of Mt. Snowdon, with two main footpaths, the Rhyd Ddu path and the Snowdon Ranger path starting from the village. There are also several woodland and forest walks within easy reach see ‘local walks’.
The village boasts magnificent uninterrupted views towards Mt. Snowdon and is situated right at the start of the Nantlle Ridge and Mynydd Mawr, popular havens for the hillwalkers of Snowdonia.
We are ideally situated for exploring the whole of Snowdonia and North Wales. There are castles, steam railways and of course the natural beauty of the mountains, valleys and beaches all within easy reach. This area of outstanding natural beauty is an ideal base for walking, climbing, fishing, pony trekking, diving, canoeing, sailing, wind surfing, mountain biking and much, much, more.
