Stone bridge over River Colwyn in Beddgelert, North Wales
Beddgelert is one of the prettiest and villages in Snowdonia. The pristine sound of flowing water, clean air and greenery makes this little village heaven on earth. It stands in a valley at the confluence of the River Glaslyn and River Colwyn. Just above the confluence of the rivers, in the centre of the village, is the old stone bridge with two arches. It is well placed as a base to visit the wider area. The centre is pretty with a craft centre, excellent ice cream parlour and delightful walk along the banks of the river. The folk tale of the faithful hound “Gelert” is often associated with the village. A raised mound in the village is called “Gelert’s Grave” and is a significant tourist attraction.
