A relaxed and comfortable stay nestled at the foot of Snowdon. YHA Snowdon Ranger is a rural retreat at the foot of the mountain, this former inn is great accommodation to use as a base when you’re tackling Snowdon on a walking or hiking holiday. It’s in an area steeped in the culture of Wales – the village of Beddgelert, Sygun Copper Mine, Caernarfon Castle and the Welsh Highland Railway are nearby. In summer, swim in the lake from our own beach, then share your experiences with other guests over a tasty meal and drink.
FREE WI-FI available in communal areas for guests!
We have a number of private rooms available ranging from two to seven beds, with quite a few four bed rooms, one of which is en-suite.
