  • "WiFi is terrible."

    Can not access in living area, only bedrooms. You have to constantly log back in and it is not a secure connection. Other than that the cottage was lovely, excellent.

  • "The cottage was great, every room was good, but the living room could of been more homely, it was old/dark, furniture was uncomfortable and had a old, musty smell."

    But overall was good. We had the pleasure of meeting the owner, who was lovely and the cafe next to us was great and was very accommodating to us.

  • "The cottage was nice and as expected and good location."

    Only negatives are an extremely squeaky bed, lumpy pillows need replacing. Kitchen hob, dials worn away so guesswork on which dial to use and numbers worn away for level of heat so again guesswork. A number of lightbulbs missing. Unable to turn off radiators. Would still return again but the above small grumbles need addressing.

  • "Wow. What a fantastic surprise and hidden gem."

    The photo's didn't do justice to this large multi level cottage. The bedrooms face onto the road and a folliaged view of the river. Double glazing keeps the outside world muffled. The cottage is the ideal based for the great outdoors. On day three, we scaled Snowdon.

    Garden not very private and susceptible to flies but other than that would recommend.

  • "This is a lovely cottage, stunning old fire place with wood burner."

    The place is a lot bigger then the photos depict. On a previous stay the shower was very bad but they have improved this but it could do with more pressure Would be nice to have some basics (welcome package in the cottage) for short stay guests

    Many thanks for your feedback and we do leave, tea, coffee, milk and sugar for guest's arrival. We are glad to hear that you were pleased with the cottage as we do our very best to ensure guests have a good stay. Property Owner

  • "Only one of the sofa was really comfortable."

    The other white sofa and chair were tired. The outside table and chairs were overgrown. Bench was covered in moss so you could not sit on it without getting dirty. Recycling instructions were also not clear I had to ring the contact on the Sykes site to receive the property access detail despite requesting them. Our biggest issue though for the party was the bed mattresses. The double I used had one mattress on top of the other which made the bed very high and gave no support. One mattress would move around on top of the other. The single room again had a mattress with poor support and no where to hang any clothes. The other double was slightly better but noisy when he moved. Because of this none of us slept very well. On the positive side the cottage is fairly central. The kitchen has everything you need shame the bulb in the cooker hood did not work. Lounge is bigger than the photos. Bathroom is a good size with a good shower

    Thank you for your feedback though we are sorry to read your comments. We pride ourselves on our usually excellent feedback, if we had been made aware of any issues during your stay we would have been happy to assist. The second mattress is actually a mattress topper, this could have been easily removed. We don't advertise the single room as having a wardrobe but take your comments on board. Thank you for the positive comments you made and hope you enjoyed your week. Property Owner

  • "Pros: - Spacious & querky Cottage, - Location great to wander round Betws-y-Coed, walk out from the cottage, or get the bus further afield."

    - The cottage is behind a café, which serves lovely pizza's on Fridays and Saturday evenings. - Basics are left for you - toilet roll, some dishwasher tabs (4 for a whole week), tea/coffee/sugar. Dishwasher and Washing Machine in the kitchen. Combi-boiler so hot water when you need it. - Wifi that covers most of house (harder to get reception in the lounge). Modem is in the furthest bedroom, we found it easiest to sign in from that room. Cons: - Beds and floorboards are squeaky. - Lounge is very dark (it's a converted barn), so isn't as inviting during daylight. - One tollet which is in the bathroom, so you need to plan the showers etc!

  • "Fabulous location."

    We were greeted with cake and fresh milk was supplied for tea/coffee which was also available. The cottage has an adorable charm and offered everything we could have asked for. Having the pizzeria on hand was so handy for our first evening and very reasonable. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The only small improvement would be for the beds not to be squeaky. We wi definitely return to this little gem. Thank you.

  • "Lovely cottage!"

    It is much bigger than the photos make out with good sized bedrooms! Leaving tea, coffee and milk for us to use was a lovely touch and make us feel very welcome. It is very close to al large shops and pubs (just opposite the chippy). The beds were very comfortable! However, my only concern would be that the metal bed frame was very old and noisy and kept waking us up when we rolled over, maybe that could be updated. Apart from that, the cottage was perfect! And we all said we’d stay there again!

    A homely and inviting cottage in a quiet yet central position. The layout is spacious and comfortable with all accessories needed for a relaxing break. Despite the weather we had plenty to do, the local area is stunning and we thoroughly enjoyed our walks by the river, listening to and watching the local bird life. Will definitely be visiting again.

    Very surprised at charge at Swallow Falls, other natural such places( Sgwd yr Eira for one example) is free. Great fun taking the train up Snowdon, we walked down which we would recommend !! Fab time on zip wire, that is a must. We holidayed here in the heatwave so it did make any walks difficult, still a long weekend would have sufficed.

  • "The cottage was lovely, and an added bonus of two double beds and two single meaning no one had to share (although we had anticipated sharing from the listing)."

    Beautiful kitchen and lounge. Everything we needed. Owner came to sort wifi on the day we arrived without any qualms. Steep steps outside were a little treacherous in the snow and ice and as steep as they are would probably benefit from a hand rail. Will definitely recommend and would definitely stay again.

  • "A lovely cottage tucked away from the main street but close to all amenities."

    The lounge and kitchen were excellent but the bedrooms are ready for a little TLC. It provided us with the perfect get away - just what we had wanted - log fires, long walks etc. The owner had very kindly left a bottle of fizz for new year as well as milk and mince pies. There were also kitchen basics which were helpful when cooking. The town itself is a great place to stay, especially if you like Outdoor shops! We probably wont return as there are too many places to visit and not enough time to see them all, but we would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a place to stay in North Wales.

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.
