  • "The cottage is comfortable and had enough space for our family of 4."

    The trains were quite a novelty for the kids and weren't a bother at all. There is a nice terrace to sit out on, and the area is pretty quiet. It is in a perfect location for the surrounding area such as Snowdon, Zip World sites and Llanberis. Betws-y-coed has places to eat close by and a great riverside walk as well as a park to play football.

    The station area has a great vibe and you are also very close to Betws-y-Coed. The cottage itself is very homely and the bed was very comfy.This is a great base for exploring North Wales. Thanks for a lovely stay Alwen,and the Welsh cakes / flowers/ milk,we may well be returning! Ros and John

  • "This was our second visit to this property, and we were not disappointed in the standards or facilities provided."

    I give 10 out of 10 because that is what I consider to be a true reflection on the overall experience, I was able to contact the property owner easily for key arrangement and they also contacted me during our stay to ask if everything was satisfactory which was thoughtful of them. A fabulous property which has a secluded position and added bonus of private parking, although only a few minutes from all amenities. You get what you pay for usually I find and this property I feel was total value. Will be booking very soon for another lovely experience once again. Thank you Mr and Mrs Williams for a lovely holiday. Regards Adrian...

  • "The location was great but we found the following problems."

    There was damp in the double bedroom and also in the twin, the twin was actually dripping water from the ceiling. The mattresses have all seen better days and could do with upgrading. The sofa's looked comfy until you sat on them, the two seater felt like it had collapsed and again could do with replacing. The rug in the lounge was unsuitable and a trip hazard for young children. The hob had one ring not working. The shower screen wouldn't stay in place allowing water to pour onto the floor.

    In response to this negative feedback we would like to comment as below. We could have sorted some of the issues out at the time of stay if they would have contacted us. 1. Double bedroom - there is now no damp there but we are continuing to sort the remaining stain. See Errata message from Sykes- To keep you up to date, since booking your holiday there have been some changes to the property you are staying in; There is a stain on the ceiling in the double bedroom. Please don't be alarmed that there is a leak as it is just a stain. The owner's are looking at getting this removed but they are unable to do this until after your booking has passed. If you wish to call us to discuss this further, you can do this by calling 01244 345700 (option 1 and option 2). 2. Twin bedroom - we have never seen, or been told of any water dripping from the ceiling in this bedroom but will check and sort out on next changeover. 3. Sofa and matresses - again first complaint. Will replace sofa ASAP and will check matresses accordingly. 4. Hob - was made aware that one out of the four was not working. 5. Shower - we didn’t know about the problem with the shower screen but will look into it. Property Owner

  • "Had a lovely stay at no1 Railway cottage."

    Very clean and comfortable. Fully equipped with everything needed for a worry free stay. Double bed was super comfy. Owner was so nice kept us informed. Had a lovely touch of fresh flowers and the fire on when we arrived. Would definitely recommend and would love to stay again. I to stay that on Skyecottages the description does state sky TV which there isn't. It does have a smart TV which you can use Netflix. Disney + and YouTube however the WiFi isn't strong enough for it to work all the time. But we weren't there for TV watching so not really a problem. The village is a beautiful place!

  • "The cottage is in a perfect location and the views from it with all the wild birds are amazing."

    The trains really aren’t a bother, in fact we ended up looking for them and waving! Everything you need is provided and very useful utility room. The owner gave us a friendly helpful call with all the info prior to the trip and we were warned about the damp patch in the double room and the non working blind before we arrived. On the downside the sofas were perhaps a little past their use with big sags and unfortunately for me, with a dust mite allergy, the radiator tops were absolutely full of fluff, cobwebs and dust in every location though the kitchen was the worst. Perhaps with a little more attention to cleanliness this could have been a perfect getaway.

  • "A most enjoyable holiday experience, overall trying to please every individual is difficult but this property in my view comes very close to perfection."

    Car parking was excellent which was private and an added bonus was safe off road. Excellent communication from the owner regarding ascertaining keys etc. The following points are made in a helpful manner:- 1. Refuse bins (especially the green re-cycle) need labelling so that no doubt in what to place in each bin, bottles, cardboard, cans, plastic etc. 2. Additional plastic bin liners for the large black bin would help to keep bin clean. 3. A dimmer switch for the upstairs stairs/landing light or a night light to switch on during hours of darkness if you need the bathroom during the night to save putting lights on to see where your going may be beneficial especially as one bedroom exits by the stairs. 4. A warning tape or marker on the step from the kitchen into the entrance hall (to front door) needed, the step is lower and black in colour and therefore it was easy to misplace your footing and balance as happened upon our visit until you are used to it. I hasten to add the above issues did not overshadow the overall experience of the property which was most enjoyable. Thank you.

    On arrival we were greeted by fresh flowers on the table, welsh cakes and a bottle of milk. Much appreciated after a long drive! The cottage was well presented, cosy, clean and comfortable. The garden was lovely and we wrapped up and sat out for our morning teas while watching the birds. The location was perfect, we were in walking distance of shops, restaurants and attractions. I would definitely stay here again, as it was enjoyed by all of the family.

    My son who loves trains loved the train museum and shop. We all liked being so close to the shops and cafes while still being so quiet. Unfortunately due to rain we were unable to walk as much as we would have liked but found plenty to do locally with two high school children. The parking was close enough not to be a problem. We had a supermarket food delivery just after we arrived and were able to top up at the local shops as needed. We all really enjoyed our stay.

    There's plenty of private allocated parking, which is important in Betws, and it is literally a moment's walk away from the bustling shops and cafes around the Station. It is worth noting the trains are not running on the Conwy line at the moment due to storm damage in March '19 ~ due to reopen in the Summer. It's warm and well equipped and one we will revisit.

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.
