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 Wales', and as the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln's Great Grandmother. The village has a small church, which was originally the hospice of St John, which went on to become St John's Ambulance. There is also a village hall, 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.

Previous visitors' comments about Glan-y-Porth:
The location was good, and the parking area. There was enough hot water for all of us to have a bath when we got back from muddy walks. Very clean.
Mrs Fuller, Lyme Regis, October 2012
It was a nice quiet place to get away from it all.
Mr Bryan, Towcester, September 2012
A very welcoming property. The owners had thought of many ways to help our holiday run smoothly such as a handmade info folder. All in all a very good holiday home.
Mrs Pepper, Peterborough, July 2012
We had a very good time in Glan-y-Porth cottage. We made a lot of tours through North Wales and have seen a lot of lovely views. Great time!
Also the booking process was simple and straightforward.
Mr Hulsbos, Almere, July 2012
The cottage was lovely. It was in a quiet location which suited us. A lot of walks close by, which our dog enjoyed. Within driving distance of amenities and places of interest. Weather was good whilst we were there, which was a bonus. Overall a great holiday.
Mrs Roberts, Loughborough, May 2012
Great locations. Beautiful surroundings. Lovely cottage.
Mrs Smith, Petersfield, April 2012
A fantastic property which was very well equipped and has been redecorated. A perfect place to chill and relax after a busy day. I will definitely try to book again.
Mrs Bennett, Bretagne, February 2012
Quiet peaceful setting but within easy access to Snowdonia.
Mrs Garrod, Camelford, February 2012
All facilities in the cottage were excellent upon arrival. The owner had thoughtfully left on the lights and heating and there was a welcome card with a bottle of champagne for the new year. Location was just what we wanted, quiet and secluded, but near enough to all amenities by car. Would highly recommend.
Mrs Nunn, Haverhill, December 2011
Fantastic cottage in a superb location. Quiet village but close to Betws-Y-coed. The area was an excellent base for walking and exploring the local attractions. The owner was very pleasant and plenty of information in the cottage on the local area. We enjoyed a very comfortable week. Thoroughly recommended!
