Cwellyn Arms is a Country Inn with accommodation at the foot of Mount Snowdon in the village of Rhyd Ddu 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 mountain and forestry walks, for all levels, including low level 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. Nearby attractions include Surf Snowdonia, a revolutionary surf lagoon and ‘Zip World’ which boasts the fastest zip line in the world, and the longest in Europe.

We are a family-run traditional country inn and restaurant with varied accommodation, at the foot of Mt. Snowdon. As owners of the Cwellyn Arms for over 40 years, we have experience within the hospitality and restaurant industry and strive to do our utmost to ensure an enjoyable visit or stay.
