    “This cottage is in the most idyllic place.”

    Yes, the track to the cottage is rough, but not inaccessible and when you reach Cyfyng, the view just takes your breath away. It is a real get away from it all. The cottage itself was rustic, but utterly charming. We were a family of six Nan, Grandad, son, daughter-in-law, two children aged 3yrs and 2yrs plus 2 dogs and we all loved our holiday there. The only downside is lack of signal on the tv, but plenty of DVDs to watch. Didn't miss tv at all! Also the water pump from the bore hole is ...

Also the water pump from the bore hole is amazingly noisy, but we did have plenty of lovely soft water.

The property

Cyfyng is a beautiful, traditional Welsh stone-built holiday cottage sitting in the hills above Betws y Coed in Snowdonia.

It’s got a lot of history being built in the 17th century - it was previously part of the old school building!

Inside the holiday cottage has retained its charm - wooden shutters, a stone fireplace and exposed beams are all there still.

Also boasting views out over the woodland and down into the valley, you’ll not see another house so you’ve got plenty of privacy.

The kitchen is small - but perfectly formed!

- with an electric oven and hob, fridge, washing machine, microwave, toaster and kettle.

The freezer is located in the adjoining boot room. The open plan dining area is close to the kitchen and had gorgeous original tiled flooring, a wood burning stove and amazing views to soak up with your morning cuppa, or evening supper! The sitting room offers squishy sofas around the open fire making this a cosy space come autumn-winter.

There’s a TV, DVD player and a good selection of books and games for your entertainment. All of the bedrooms are upstairs.

There are two double bedrooms, one of which has an additional single bed.

There is also a bunk room.

The shower room has an electric shower, toilet and hand basin.

Outside the front of the holiday cottage is a lovely terrace with outdoor seating - sit here with a glass of wine and soak up the views over the valley.

There is also parking for two cars. Whilst Cyfyng is a secluded and rural holiday cottage ideal for relaxation, you are certainly not in the middle of nowhere!

In fact, some of Snowdonia’s best towns and villages are a short drive away.

Picturesque Betws y Coed is only down the road and has a lovely selection of shops, pubs and restaurants.

The Llechwedd Slate Caverns is a nearby attraction or, if you're feeling adventurous, you can hurtle down a zip wire at Zip World, or jump around the underground trampoline at Bounce Below.

With walks, attractions, activities and fab things to see and do close by, there’s plenty on offer to make the most of your holiday in this wonderful part of North Wales.

About the location

PENMACHNO

Betws-y-Coed 4 miles.

The small, peaceful village of Penmachno is situated in the beautiful Machno Valley, just 4 miles from the popular town of Betws-y-Coed. Surrounded by 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! The beautiful Conwy Falls are also well worth a visit and are situated in the Machno Valley. With all of Snowdonia to explore and North Wales' Heritage Coastlines also within easy reach, this beautiful location has plenty to offer at any time of year.
