  • "Ideal location for access to all Betws-y-coed has to offer, and off the main road so really peaceful."

    Property is really well furnished in every room, although a little dated but lends itself well to the properties feel/ outdoorsy use. I did notice a few minor cleaning improvements- dusty in places, cobwebs and odd bits of the floor- but it a property that sleeps 8 and such spacious rooms these minor aspects are understandable. Thanks for the great stay!

  • "Absolutely lovely accommodation, well equipped and most importantly the beds were very comfortable."

    The only very very slight negative is there were a few cobwebs and those very fine spiders high up near the ceilings. I hate spiders so it could just do with de-cobwebbing more often, but it wasn’t bad enough to put me off the house. Would definitely return and would also recommend to friends. I should imagine it would be lovely to sit out in the garden if there in the summer.

  • "A nice holiday cottage in Betws-y-Coed, very close to the amenities of the village and easy access to some lovely walks."

    The cottage itself has everything we needed, spacious liounge and plenty of room for the 7 of us. I would recommend the cottage and the area.

  • "The cottage is in a great location, you feel as if you are in the forest whilst being minutes from the village centre."

    It is Tardis like, being so much bigger inside than it looks and is quite luxurious. Whilst some of the utensils (ovenware) could do with updating, the crockery and cutlery are plentiful and looked new. It was very clean on arrival and the large vestibule enabled us to take our boots off inside in the warm and dry when back from a walk. The conservatory provided a peaceful and light place to read and enjoy coffee and cakes from the excellent bakery. We came by train and used the frequent Sherpa buses; it was so easy to get round and be green.

  • "This is definitely the nicest holiday accomodation we have stayed in."

    It is brilliantly located with a 2 minute downhill walk to the village centre. All the facilities are top quality and very few similar properties have a conservatory (small) and a good sized garden which is on a split level with tables and chairs - ideal for the summer. Angela, the caretaker who lives very close, was an absolute star and she very promptly had a minor radiator problem corrected and was very helpful with the recycling. Perhaps it's being churlish but a tv in the main bedroom would be nice. Eating places in the village are at a premium and booking well in advance is recommended. The Old Ship at Trefriw is also worth a visit and for shopping, the Co-op at Llanrwst is the best in the immediate area. A really enjoyable stay and we were sorry to leave.

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.
