  • "The cottage was perfect, the surroundings were beautiful and a great base for walks or just relaxing and watching all the different birds feeding."

    We will definitely book again in the new year but next time maybe longer. Thankyou again, Jayne and Chris.

    Thanks for the lovely feedback. Hope that you can return to Greffyn soon. Teleri Property Owner

  • "This is a truly idyllic cottage, we all fell in love with its charm!"

    Thanks for sharing it with us and we hope to return again for sure. To walk straight into the Forest was magical and for Mountain Bikers it's brilliant with proper storage and trails on the doorstep including the Marin Trail.

    Thanks for the lovely feedback! Teleri Property Owner

  • "Great cottage and lovely location, really enjoyed our stay over Christmas."

    The cottage is in a remote location on a hill, on the one side you have beautiful forest and on the other - fields with some views over the valley. To get to the cottage you need to drive on a foresty road for about 600 m uphill. The road is made up of crushed stones, so you won't get stuck in a mud there, but if it was snowing it would be problematic / impossible to drive to / from the cottage on a sedan car without winter tyres. The cottage itself is in a great condition and has very good facilities. Highly recommended for an amazing stay in Snowdonia.

    Hi. So glad that you enjoyed Christmas at Greffyn! We would like to reassure our guests that we have been letting this cottage since 2006 and our guests have never failed to drive to the cottage - even in the snow! Hope you can visit us again. Thanks Property Owner

  • "Greffyn is a beautiful cottage set on its own, in an idyllic setting."

    It is clean and comfortable and well furnished. The kitchen is well equipped and the added addition of the pool table in the games room provided a little competition on some wet days. It is within walking distance through the forest to local amenities and Betws-y-coed has a well-stocked Spar shop with instore bakery which is excellent. There are plenty of walks directly from the cottage as well as being near to the more well-known tracks and trails in the national park. We really enjoyed our stay here and would certainly book again if in the area.

  • "The cottage is wonderful and in fantastic surroundings."

    The walking is first class and some starting from the cottage door. We have taken holidays in this region of Wales for many years and will definitely return. Our kids and grand kids from West Australia also had a ball and would like to return. Thank you very much for sharing your fantastic cottage.

  • "Cottage was amazing, very secluded with spacious gardens including bbq patio and outdoor dining area yet short walk from Betws y Coed."

    Hottest recorded temp in Wales so thick stone walls meant nice and cool. Wi-Fi and EV charger useful as was cool water / ice dispenser. Fire set on arrival and welcome wine and treats all nice touches and appreciated. Very close to walking routes and mountain bike trails, also had a shed to store bikes in. Hope to return next year and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to others.

  • "We had an amazing week's stay at Greffyn."

    The cottage definitely had the wow factor! It was comfy, cosy and very well equipped. The bedding was so good that I have actually been out to buy the same pillows! The location is superb, very secluded but the perfect base to explore the beautiful Welsh scenery. We loved the fire pit and spent most evenings out in the garden. We can highly recommend Greffyn to everyone! Thanks Teleri. We hope to come back. ps look out for the woodpeckers in the garden!

  • "We had a great, relaxing week at the cottage."

    The situation of the cottage is so peaceful and yet a twenty minute walk, you can be in Betws y coed. The cottage had everything you could want and the pool table was a plus. Teleri was a good host and quick to communicate. We went on a couple of walks from the cottage and it doesn’t take too long to reach the coast. A great location to explore North Wales.

    Thanks for the lovely review! So glad you enjoyed your stay at Greffyn! Teleri Property Owner

Greffyn is a charming, detached stone-built cottage resting a stone's throw from the village of Betws-y-Coed in Eryri (Snowdonia), North Wales.

This well-equipped holiday home sits within the Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park, making it an ideal escape for groups of friends or a family looking to explore the great outdoors of North Wales.

An attractive living room welcomes you back from a day of adventure, set around a characterful inglenook fireplace boasting a woodburning stove to keep you warm while watching TV in the evening.

Adjacent to this sits a games room, playing host to a pool table and a TV to keep the children occupied while you kick back with a relaxing drink.

The kitchen/diner is smartly furnished and well-appointed, with a dining table seating six allowing your group to come together for an evening meal.

Take the stairs to the first floor to find the three stylishly decorated bedrooms; the master double benefitting from an en-suite shower room, a further double and lastly a twin room, the latter two sharing a family bathroom with the option of an overhead shower.

Enjoy the peaceful location from the table and chairs to the front of the property, before setting off on a walk through Gwydir Forest just half a mile away.

Take a walk into the village of Betws-y-Coed, lined with a choice of delightful eateries and unique, independent shops, while two rivers running close by bring an element of natural beauty to your visit.

Llanrwst is a market town close by with its own selection of little shops and cafés worth visiting, or head into the heart of Snowdonia to Blaenau Ffestiniog, home to the Ffestiniog Railway offering a tour of this magnificent National Park without having to move a muscle.

The UNESCO World Heritage town of Conwy lies north of the property, boasting beautifully preserved town walls and a 13th century castle, providing a great day out learning of Wales’ rich history, from medieval battles right through to the modern day.

Admire the revolutionary Telford Suspension Bridge, visit the Smallest House in Great Britain, and discover a host of quaint cafés and restaurants, with pubs that sit along the quay too.

About the location


Llanrwst 4 miles; Blaenau Ffestiniog 11 miles.

Betws-y-Coed, known as the Gateway to Eryri (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.
