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.

Length

The length (in miles) of a walk is an approximation of the overall of the walking guide, not a measure of the distance "as the crow flies" between any two points. This is based on the GPX file that was created when the author walked the route and rounded to the nearest mile.length

Grade (Boots)

The grade of a walk is an indicator of how difficult it is to walk. This does not take into account the walk length but does suggest how challenging the walk will be. An easy walk, graded as 1 (and shown as 1 walking boot) indicates a walk that is essentially flat, has no sharp hills to climb, has no stiles or other obstacles, is easy to navigate (probably along a well-worn path) and is suitable for most levels of fitness. Do be aware that the level of stamina required will vary and you should only walk within your limits - the indication of walk length will help with this. A difficult walk, graded as 5 (and represented by 5 boots) indicates a walk that is strenuous and involves steep ascents and/or descents. It may be technically challenging involving difficult terrain or obstacles.

Please note that the grading for walks is subjective and open to interpretation and should only be used as a guide when selecting a walk.
