    The log burner was an absolute bonus on these chillier November nights. We will 100% be booking again next year!

    It’s very comfortable and surrounded by beautiful places to go to.. unfortunately there was a problem with the water system which meant we had to cut our holiday short by two days

    We enjoyed celebrating our Silver Wedding Anniversary here. Very cosy with the added bonus of the log burner. The grounds were very much enjoyed by our Labrador! Lovely to see all the lambs in the fields. The village has everything you need and more. Fish and chips were amazing! Only a short drive from Betws-y-Coed which we love.

    The cottage is well equipped with everything we needed, even down to a slow cooker. Very clean, rooms a great size. Peaceful. Great we could walk round the grounds. Elwyn was extremely helpful. Great area for walking our dog. Lovely to relax round the fire going at night after being out walking. Really comfortable except for the mattress which is down to our personal preference of preferring a firm mattress to a soft. However, this wouldn't stop us booking again..Thank you for a great stay.

Blinds and curtains could be replenished/updated. Outside - out-house/store roof had collapsed in and was in a bad state of repair, could be a hazard. Location of cottage to places to visit is good but the junction on to the main road is hair-raising to say the least, because of lack of visibility to the right, this is fast, busy main road.

  • "Clean, comfortable lodge in a handy location for large tracts of north west Wales."

    Although it's next to a main road and a railway line we barely noticed them. Few trains in the day and none overnight. The landlord was friendly and helpful. The welcome wine and huge flapjack was appreciated! Nice big fridge-freezer and a good electric hob and double-over and microwave. Bath and shower were good, nice big bathroom too. Hot water was a bit puzzling - a switch on the wall said hot water but didn't seem to do anything so we ended up using the immersion heater when needed. Nothing in the Lodge manual to suggest doing anything different. Comfortable big bed, decent amount of wardrobe space and drawers. The high ceilings kept it pleasantly cool on the very hot days we had. There's a broad pavement/cycle track outside the Lodge all the way down to Llanrwst. Overall a peaceful week in a cosy Lodge in a fabulous location. Fond memories of looking out over the hills on the far side of the Conwy valley each morning!

About the location


Betws-y-Coed 4 miles; Conwy 10 miles.

Llanrwst is a thriving market town which stands in the beautiful Conwy Valley, only four miles from picturesque Betws-y-Coed, known as the 'Gateway to Snowdonia' and which is North Wales's 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 Woodland High Rope Activity Centre, 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.
