  • "A lovely cottage."

    Spacious and warm. A perfect location...central but still quiet. The trains going by in no way disturbed us but added to our enjoyment. Highly recommend

  • "A very cosy cottage with all the home comforts that you possibly wish for."

    The welcome addition was the welsh cakes that were left by the owner.

  • "A beautiful modern, well equipped home-from-home in the heart of Betws y Coed village."

    Thoughtful owners left milk, coffee, welshcakes and fresh flowers out for our arrival. Designated parking for up to 2 cars, a sunny quiet patio area to relax, yet only sminutes walk from pubs, restaurants and the Gwydr National Park & River Llugwy. Something for everyone and an excellent base to explore the beauty of North Wales. Highly recommended.

    Location ideal for a couple of boys who loved seeing and riding on the trains. The milk in the fridge on our arrival and Welsh cakes was a lovely touch. Thank you.. will definitely book again...

  • "Wow! What a wonderful cottage in a fabulous setting."

    Everything was immaculately clean and very well equipped - Mrs Williams was extremely helpful and provided lots of useful info about shops, pubs etc. The village is a perfect setting to explore Snowdonia and the surrounding areas - everything seemed to be much nearer than expected - which meant we weren't spending lots of time travelling... We cant wait to come back and explore further - once lockdown is lifted.. Many thanks...

  • "This cottage was lovely, and exactly what we wanted."

    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.

  • "Comfortable cottage, very convenient for visiting family in nearby Llanrwst - especially since the introduction of a train service on Sundays."

    Reviewed by AnneDec 2019

  • "This cottage is ideally situated not just for the pretty village of Betws-y-Coed but for the Snowdonia National Park ~ you can get to the high lights of the Park like the Snowdon Railway or Zip World before the crowds and take advantage of the various early bird offers."

    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.

  • "The Railway Cottage is very specious and located at a very good spot in Betws-y-Coed (a good place to be!"

    ). The train passes really close to the cottage but as the train only runs 6 times a day (forward/backward) it only ads to the atmosphere we expected with a railway cottage.

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.
