  • "Super location, lovely and peaceful we felt at one with our surroundings and all the nature."

    We settled in and relaxed quickly. Fabulous views from the living area and main bedroom. In all a lovely little cottage with everything needed for a superb holiday

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Awelfryn."

    The cottage is very comfortable, clean and well equipped with lovely views. It is a great base for Snowdonia, we visited Anglesey, North Wales coast, Bodnant Gardens and Portmeirion. We loved the walk into Betws and found the Pont-Y-Pair really good, , just cross the road and its a stunning walk by the river. Thank you for the Welsh cakes and milk in the fridge, very thoughtful. A visitor book would be a nice addition. We would thoroughly recommend the cottage and would stay again.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Alwefryn and used as a base for some big hill days: Positives: - Property very clean on arrival - welcome pack of tea and Welsh cakes - Good location to access Ogwen valley/ Moel Siabod/ Snowdon paths - Washing machine very handy - Parking space - comfortable beds - electric heating performed well - Netflix (daughter) Cons: - Free sat on TV didn’t work and we ended up using a laptop in the evening (we did put in a maintenance request but the response was too slow to get it working before we left) - outside spaces could do with a some TLC - shower is tiny - if you’re a big lad like me then it is not comfortable - nowhere to hang wet clothes/ put dirty boots (part of the cottage’s quaintness…."

    ? ) Overall, happy with our experience at cottage and would consider staying again in the right circumstances.

    Thanks for your review We are sorry the TV wasn’t working for you, it was reported to us mid week. This has not been a problem before but has now been fixed. There is a drying rack and boots tray to the right of the door as you enter the kitchen. We are glad that you feel the heating system works well but, for obvious reasons, were disappointed to discover that despite a written request to the contrary, it had been left on when you vacated the property, and several windows left open.

The property

Betws-y-Coed 0.8 miles.

Awelfryn is a lovely, mid-terrace, stone cottage sitting on the outskirts of Betws-y-Coed, Conwy.

The cottage is a walker's paradise, sitting within the Snowdonia National Park and a footpath leading from the garden into Gwydir Forest, making a superb base for families and couples to enjoy the great outdoors with off-road parking, bike storage, and outdoor seating.

Be welcomed into the open-plan living space where you can freshen up your walking gear in the washer/dryer and prepare a hearty supper in the well-equipped kitchen area.

Gather your loved ones around the table for five to catch up over dinner, before starting the woodburning stove and settling into the sitting area with a Smart TV.

The cottage also has two patios to the front and rear with outdoor seating to savour your country surroundings with a cold beverage after the day's adventures.

Upstairs, you'll find two bedrooms, a king-size and a triple bunk, along with a contemporary shower room.

Settled on the fringes of Betws-y-Coed, you'll find excellent amenities and attractions close by; dine at the likes of Hangin' Pizzeria, Olif for traditional Welsh fare, and Caban-Y-Pair, while the local convenience store supplies the essentials.

With walks from your doorstep, you'll discover Rhaeadr Ewynnol Swallow Falls Waterfall, the Ty'n Llwyn Walking Trail, or perhaps you'd prefer the Conwy Valley Railway Museum with plenty of interactive exhibits.

Outdoor adventurers will also find their paradise here with Zip World Fforest, Snowdon peak, and Surf Snowdonia all within easy reach.

Further afield, there's so much to discover such as the market town of Llanrwst next to Gwydir Mawr & Bach forest, Blaenau Ffestiniog for Zip World Llechwedd set inside an impressive rock quarry, and the Victorian-era Sygun Copper Mine.

Snowdonia National Park is also rich in historic sites, such as Dolwyddelan Castle and Tŷ Mawr Wybrnant, a National Trust 16th-century house and birthplace of Bishop Morgan, who translated the bible into Welsh.

Book a memorable staycation in North Wales at Awelfryn.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £450.

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.
