The Property

A 200-year old traditional, stone, end-terrace cottage, on the edge of Ysbyty Ifan, on the banks of the River Conwy, six miles from Betws-y-Coed. Overlooking the church, this Betws-y-Coed cottage is the last property on the outskirts of the village, enjoying a superb location on the edge of country fields, next to a babbling brook that adds to the countryside charm. This Betws-y-Coed cottage retains many original features, with an inglenook fireplace housing a log burner-effect electric stove, exposed stone chimney breast and exposed beamed ceilings throughout. There is welcoming accommodation at this Ysbyty Ifan cottage, with two bedrooms, a cosy sitting room and a bright kitchen with dining area. A stable door leads out into an enclosed, rear courtyard garden. Guests can relax in this lovely setting, with a fantastic, sheltered, outdoor eating and seating area, and can listen to the sound of the brook, whilst taking in the views over the hills and fields beyond. This Betws-y-Coed cottage is a walker's dream, as there are peaceful mountain and forest walks, fantastic waterfalls and beautiful views from the surrounding hills. The nearby village of Betws-y-Coed offers shops, pubs and eateries and is a wonderful place to visit.

About the location

YSBYTY IFAN

Betws-y-Coed 6 miles.

The small, rural village of Ysbyty Ifan is idyllically set amidst rolling hills and mountains in the beautiful Snowdonia National Park. This is a National Trust village, renowned for being 'the most historical place in North Wales', and as the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln's Great Grandmother. The village has an historic and beautiful church, which sits on the site of the ancient hospice of the Knights of St John. There is also an old water mill and smithy, while the encompassing countryside is alive with a wealth of wildlife including the occasionally-spotted, rare red kite. Just 6 miles away, at the head of the beautiful Conwy Valley lies Wales' most popular inland resort, Betws-y-Coed, translated as "sanctuary in the wood". A haven for walkers and mountain bikers, this striking village is alive with cascading waterfalls, pretty river pools and ancient bridges and a variety of specialist shops, excellent pubs and restaurants to suit every taste. The unique, Italianate village of Portmeirion, the lovely Victorian town of Llandudno and the Roman city of Chester are all within easy touring distance, making this a wonderful base for a varied and enjoyable holiday.
