    • “Lovely cottage. Fantastic location.”

    • “An excellent place to stay in Betws-y-Coed. A really well-equipped, comfortable cottage. Great for all the family (we were a party of three adults and two young boys) with loads to do in the surrounding areas. Betws-y-Coed is beautiful in itself, but close to lots of other attractions. The owners run the café beneath the cottage (the café is also recommended), which means they're nearby for any enquiries, etc. Hard to pick any fault with the cottage (or the location). There are several steps, quite narrow, leading to the place. Absolutely fine for all of our party (ages 3 to 64), but wouldn't suit those who needed wheelchair access. Very highly recommended. I'd go again in a heartbeat.”

    • “This cottage is located in a good position on the main street, just a couple of doors up from the Pont Y Pair Hotel, where good meals are available at a reasonable price. Free street parking is available 200 metres up the road. The cottage has good amenities. The only problem was some difficulty with the central heating for the really cold nights.”

About the location


Llanrwst 4 miles; Blaenau Ffestiniog 11 miles.

Betws-y-Coed, known as the Gateway to Snowdonia, is North Wales' most popular inland resort. Surrounded by dense woodland and magnificent mountain country, this is a haven for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts alike. At Betws-y-Coed the River Conwy meets its three tributaries flowing from the west, and the beauty of the area is enhanced by cascading waterfalls, river pools and ancient bridges. Most famous of all are the magnificent Swallow Falls, situated where the Llugwy River hurls itself into a spectacular chasm. The village has shops, pubs, places to eat, miniature railway, a riverside golf course and the Tree Top Adventure High Ropes Course, and is home to The Snowdonia National Park Visitor Centre, as well as being the start of the beautiful Conwy Valley which leads to the coast and the lovely towns of Llandudno and Conwy.
