This wonderful detached cottage is situated in the picturesque village of Bethesda, bordering the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales.

Set in beautiful countryside with the sound of the nearby river and open aspect through the woodland, Yr Hen Ogwen is a perfect place for a family, couples or group of friends looking to explore all that this region has to offer.

Deceptively spacious, the property is well-presented and offers very good holiday accommodation which will not disappoint.

A fresh and well-appointed sitting room, with plenty of comfy seating is very welcoming and is sure to appeal, with a relaxing atmosphere, just what you want to return to after a busy day out and about and the dining area provides a please for you all to enjoy a meal together.

The well-equipped kitchen caters for all your needs and there is an additional breakfast table and chairs for something a little less formal.

Upstairs, the three bedrooms have been lovingly furnished and individually styled with both comfort and convenience in mind: there’s a luxurious king-size double, a wonderful super king-size double, which can be offered as a twin for more flexible sleeping arrangements and a single room, all with air-sprung mattresses, to ensure a good nights sleep is had.

All three bedrooms are serviced but a stylish family bathroom and for convenience a cloakroom is also on the ground floor.

Patio doors lead off the sitting room to an outside patio which extends to a good sized garden, great for the children and dogs.

This is a terrific place to dine alfresco or just sit and relax whilst enjoying the sounds of the river, whilst accessed down several steps, making this cottage quite special are two further seating areas overlooking the river, providing a special place to hide away and enjoy a glass of wine, finish that book or simply enjoy the peace and tranquillity, you might even be lucky enough to spot the heron, a regular visitor here in the morning!

Bethesda has a good selection of independent shops, pubs and restaurants spread along the length of the high street and for the adrenaline junkies amongst your party, across the valley is home Zip World Velocity 2, the longest zip line in Europe and the fastest in the world!

There are plenty of walking and cycling opportunities from the door and for the more energetic, why not take the challenge and climb Snowdon.

For those less energetic, you can always let the train take the strain as the Snowdon Mountain Railway will take you to the mountain's very summit, whilst the stunning coastline of North Wales, Betws y Coed and Anglesey is only twenty minutes away by car.

With something for everyone, Yr Hen Ogwen is a welcoming cottage, providing a great base from which to indulge in a relaxing and truly memorable holiday, anytime of the year.

About the location


Bangor 6 miles; Caernarfon 10 miles.

Bethesda is a small town settled beside the River Ogwen in North Wales. Situated on the A5 between Bangor and the Snowdonia National Park, Bethesda was once a busy slate quarrying town and nowadays offers a good selection of shops and other amenities, in particular a number of chapels and pubs. The beautiful mountainous scenery of Snowdonia borders Bethesda, with the Lôn Las Ogwen cycling and walking paths skirting past. For the more adventurous, why not visit Zip World in Bethesda which is known for having Europe’s fastest and longest zip line. Capel Curig, just ten miles away, is a popular centre for walking, climbing and mountain biking, whilst Llanberis is situated at the foot of Mount Snowdon and is home to the Snowdon Mountain Railway and the National Slate Museum. Cwm Idwal is also a wonderful spot to visit, situated in northern Snowdonia – Darwin came to study the area and found tiny fossils of oceanic plant life and sea creatures in the boulders and rocks. The coastal town of Caernarfon is just a short drive away as is the beautiful Isle of Anglesey and the Anglesey Coastal Path. Visitors to the area can also explore the castles of Caernarfon and Beaumaris and the NT stately homes of Penrhyn Castle and Plas Newydd Country House and Gardens. Spend the day at one of the many traditional seaside resorts, or discover the isolated, hidden beaches on Anglesey, much of which is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With spectacular scenery on the doorstep, wonderful wildlife with buzzards soaring overhead and the occasional Peregrine Falcon to be seen, and many exciting outdoor adventures to discover nearby, Bethesda is superbly located for enjoying both the coast and the countryside of stunning North Wales.
