  • "Great stay in oak cottage, very cozy, quite, and overall an ideal cottage for two."

    The position of the cottage could not be better to tour North Wales and also ideal position in Betswy-y-coed a wonderful village with plenty going on. Only thing we found was the sofa could do with being replaced It seems to be going a bit flat but this is a minor gripe. Overall we enjoyed our stay in Oak cottage and would recommend to anyone wanting to explore 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.
