Beddgelert is a beautiful, unspoiled village and community in the Snowdonia area of Gwynedd, Wales. Beddgelert is situated eight miles north of Porthmadog in a secluded valley at the confluence of two rivers, the Afon Glaslyn and Afon Colwyn. Above the junction of the rivers, in the village centre, stands the old two-arched stone bridge. The village was probably named after the early Christian missionary Celert (or Cilert) with the earliest appearance of the name, as it appears today, in 1258. Parts of village church, The Church of St. Mary, date from the twelfth century.
