The property

Penmachno 1 mile.

A delightful, secluded getaway, on the hills above the picturesque village of Penmachno, in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, four miles from Betws-y-Coed.

This Penmachno cottage, which forms part of a Grade II listed house, whilst offering the privacy and seclusion of a separate dwelling, lies in a sunny glade with a fantastic, secluded patio and a babbling brook running right past the edge of the private garden.

The views stretch along the valley, with a further seating area on grassland above the property to maximise the fantastic location of this Penmachno cottage.

Built into the hillside and accessed via the first floor, this quirky Penmachno cottage has original features, including exposed beams and large slate steps leading down to the country kitchen.

Set just below a renowned mountain bike trail, there is access for walkers and cyclists through a gate at the end of the garden, and due to its location, this Penmachno cottage is also ideal for birdwatching and wildlife spotting.

In a wonderful setting, this Penmachno cottage makes a fantastic romantic getaway, with plenty to entertain you throughout the year.

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.
