    Mrs O'Sullivan, Faringdon, January 2015

    • “The cottage itself was above expectations. A comprehensive welcome guide made settling in a breeze. Despite staying in winter, the cottage was warm and cosy. My daughter and grandson loved it and the robin redbreast that visited everyday was a very nice icing on the cake. We've already talked about a return visit.”

    Mr Pivaro, Altrincham, January 2015

    Mr Powter, Sandhurst, December 2014

About the location


Betws-y-Coed 4 miles.

The small, peaceful village of Penmachno is situated in the beautiful Machno Valley, just 4 miles from the popular town of Betws-y-Coed. Surrounded by woodland, magnificent mountains and flowing rivers, the whole area is a haven for walkers, birdwatchers, mountain bikers and climbers, whilst Betws-y-Coed itself offers a good range of shops, pubs and cafes. Here the River Conwy meets its three tributaries creating a host of cascading waterfalls, river pools and ancient bridges throughout the surrounding countryside, the most famous of which is the magnificent waterfall at Swallow Falls, situated where the River Llugwy meets with a spectacular chasm creating a sight not to be missed! The beautiful Conwy Falls are also well worth a visit and are situated in the Machno Valley. With all of Snowdonia to explore and North Wales' Heritage Coastlines also within easy reach, this beautiful location has plenty to offer at any time of year.
