  • Gelert's grave was part of a six mile walk that we went on whilst visiting Beddgelert. The walk takes 4 hours with a couple of stops, and is a relatively easy walk to do. The surroundings are so lovely and picturesque. Gelert's grave has an area to walk through including his grave stone in the middle and further along a metal statue of Gelert. Great walk for families and of course dogs!
  • Great local history - love the story - the dog even had a whimper at the grave :) lovely walk
  • I was told the story about the legend of Gelert as a child in primary school and visited the grave as a child, so it was nice to revisit the site as an adult all these years later.
  • Lovely walks along the river to get to Gelert's grave. The small site has a stone telling you about the story of Gelert and there is a statue nearby in an old stone building. There is a substantial track to get there which is pram and wheelchair friendly from the village.
  • Beautiful walk along the river and then upto Gelert's grave and stone house with Gelert statue. You will also see sheep or cows on the fields. Nice walk with children.
