Snowdon Ranger is a former inn, named after one of the first guides to show people to the summit. It has now been a Youth Hostel for over 75 years. It is set in an area steeped in Welsh history with the village of Beddgelert 5 miles to the South and the World Heritage town of Caernarfon 8 miles to the North.
Robert Roberts was the Proprietor. His wife Mary Roberts suffered an injury with a meat cleaver and died shortly after.
