    • “Excellent base”

    • “Stayed at The Arfron from 31st Aug-6th Sept, all previous reviews are true, this is a wonderful place to stay. Kathy & John are fantastic hosts welcoming on the Saturday & saying goodbye on the Thursday evening.We had the best weather you could expect for September,sunny & warm most days. The cottage is spacious for 2, might be a little cramped for 4 adults, 1 bedroom as bunk beds. There is plenty of storage space though & the kitchen is the best equipped we have stayed in. The lane leading to the cottage can be a bit daunting to some but its less than 1/2 mile long, the bonus being not much traffic takes this road so walking the dog is a treat, the views from the lanes are a treat. Excellent base for touring Snowdonia, most places can be reached within the hour, Betws-y-Coed, Capel Curig,Llangollen,Llandudno & many others. The Ponty Pair hotel in Betws-y-Coed does good beer & pub grub as does the Swallow Falls hotel. Will definitely be returning soon.”

Secluded, but still handy for the local village pub and Betws Y Coed with it's amenities and well marked walks etc. Owners very friendly and the Welsh cakes provided were the best I've tasted. Will definitely return.”

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.
