    “The cottage is in a remote village ...”

    The cottage is in a remote village with no shops or cafes, pub food or restaurants within 10 miles so people must be aware to take provisions. Being on a motorbike we had little room for food and took some basic items. The information the owners had left in the house was very useful as they recommended we used the nearest town of LLanwrst rather than Betys Coed for food shoping and it did have the best variety of food stores.

    The cottage is in a remote village with no shops or cafes, pub food or restaurants within 10 miles so people must be aware to take provisions. Being on a motorbike we had little room for food and took some basic items. The information the owners had left in the house was very useful as they recommended we used the nearest town of LLanwrst rather than Betys Coed for food shoping and it did have the best variety of food stores. The house had loads of maps for walks local and further afield into Snowdonia. It was a beautiful location, peaceful and the the people who lived there were very friendly. The history of the quarry and workers were very interesting and the walks into the quarry and surrounding area were stunning. The history of a very busy Welsh community along the Penmachno valley in quarrying slate and farming added interest and when walking in the area people stopped to talk to us about the area and its history. The house was rustic and charming, the wood burning stove was a welcome asset when it rained it soon warm us and the house up.

About the location

CWM PENMACHNO

Betws-y-Coed 8 miles.

The scattered, sleepy village of Cwm Penmachno is situated in the beautiful Machno Valley, just 8 miles from the popular town of Betws-y-Coed. Surrounded by dense woodland, magnificent mountains and flowing rivers, the whole area is a haven for walkers, birdwatchers, mountain bikers and climbers, whilst Betws-y-Coed itself offers a good range of shops, pubs and cafes. Here the River Conwy meets its three tributaries creating a host of cascading waterfalls, river pools and ancient bridges throughout the surrounding countryside, the most famous of which is the magnificent waterfall at Swallow Falls, situated where the River Llugwy meets with a spectacular chasm creating a sight not to be missed! With all of Snowdonia to explore and North Wales' Heritage Coastlines also within easy reach, this beautiful location is perfect for outdoor activities or a quiet “away from it all” holiday at any time of year!
