    Maes Madog is like a little treasure trove! Location wise it is fantastic for exploring Snowdonia, albeit it is a very small, narrow, extremely steep hill you go up to get to the property (all part of the adventure). We had a Tesco delivery to supply us with all our food and drink for our visit. There are small Spar Supermarkets in the villages but you need to go to Porthmadog or Bangor to get to the bigger supermarkets. The rooms are lovely and spacious, yet cosy at the same time. Lots of period features including the original stove in the pool room, a wood burner, lovely wooden furniture in the bedrooms contrasted with modern kitchen and bathrooms. The hot tub was a super treat. I was adamant that visiting in February, we wouldn't me making use of it. Oh was I so wrong, I was the first one in there every night and the whole group of us used it each day. The kitchen has all the equipment you need to be able to stay in a cook evening meals for 8 and the dishwasher also meant breakfast dishes could be washed and ready for evening meals. Good size fridge freezer and the hob and oven were amazing - 4 gas rings, a griddle, a warmer, 2 ovens and a grill and a warming drawer for the plates! The only down side I would say is if you are above 5'3" be prepared to keep ducking your head to get through doorways. This is a 300 year old cottage, what do you expect!

Maes Madog Cottages

With stone walls and exposed oak beams, each holiday cottage is full of character and offers friends, families and couples a fantastic country escape! Inside are cosy, open plan living spaces where you can cook meals together, discuss the day’s excursions over dinner, or relax with a glass of wine and a bit of late-night TV before bed. Comfy bedrooms offer the perfect place to rejuvenate with a good night’s sleep, and three properties have bath tubs where you can relax with a long soak after a busy day. Surrounding the cottages are delightful grounds with stunning views, pretty flower beds and outdoor dining areas full of ancient oak trees and abundant birdlife. You can relax in the sunshine, accompanied by the soothing sounds of birdsong and Afon Euarth which runs nearby. The village of Capel Garmon has a local pub, which can be reached in a 15-minute walk, and the popular neighbouring village of Betws-y-Coed has a good collection of shops and pubs of its own. It also has a brilliant mountain bike centre and, as the cottages are set in the Snowdonia National Park, the surrounding area is also full of excellent walking opportunities.

About the location


Betws-y-Coed 2 miles; Llanrwst 5 miles.

Capel Garmon is a small peaceful village set above the beautiful Conwy Valley and surrounded by pastureland, with wonderful views of the Snowdonia Mountain Peaks, especially Moel Siabod. There is a traditional 16th Century country pub with a blazing log fire and home cooking, and also a renowned Neolithic burial chamber. Two miles away, Betws-y-Coed is North Wales' most popular inland resort and is surrounded by dense woodland and magnificent mountain country, a haven for walkers and cyclists. 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. This picturesque village has quality shops, pubs and restaurants and is home to The Snowdonia National Park Visitor Centre. Further afield lie the many castles, gardens, beaches and historic houses of the region, just waiting to be enjoyed.
