The property

A cosy single storey cottage, located down a quiet lane, part of a small terrace situated in the attractive and rural Welsh village of Penmachno, four miles from Betws-y-Coed, amidst the rolling hills of the Machno valley within the heart of the Snowdonia National Park.

The cottage offers warm and comfortable accommodation all year round and makes a great base for a couple who wish to explore the lovely hill and forest walks in the surrounding area.

The cottage has been tastefully decorated to provide a lovely homely holiday retreat and arranged all on one level means it could be suitable for those who can find stairs a little challenging.

About the location

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.
