The Hut and Cottage at Tan-y-Garth ('under the hill' in Welsh) are owned by Gwydyr Mountain Club and are situated one mile from the centre of Capel Curig
in the heart of Snowdonia. The properties lie in a very peaceful, scenic area of woodland at the base of Moel Siabod, but are very
conveniently placed for amenities, with local stores in Capel Curig
and an extensive range of shops in Betws y Coed, which is only a short drive away. The area around Tan-y-Garth is rich in wildlife, birds and pipistrelle bats. The
Gwydyr forest, run by the Forestry Commission, is close by providing plenty of low-level walking, or scope for mountain biking.
Tan-y-Garth is on OS Map, Land ranger 1:50,000 series - Sheet 115 - Snowdon & surrounding area - Grid ref: 737568.
From Betwys y Coed follow the A5 towards Bangor for 4 miles. On reaching the Capel Curig village boundary sign continue past a
lay-by and 30 mph sign and then make a hair-pin turn left over the stone bridge (Pont Cyfyng). Follow the minor road past
a few cottages and a converted chapel on the right and after about half a mile Tan-y-Garth is on the right, just up
the track marked by a public footpath sign.
From the North-West on the A5, pass through Capel Curig towards Betwys y Coed. The turnoff over the bridge is 0.5 miles from Capel Curig, just after passing the
Tyn y Coed hotel on your left
