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’.
