Find Holidays in Betws-y-Coed
Perfect for… beautiful natural landscapes, great hikes and quaint shops
The picturesque village of Betws-y-Coed acts as a popular gateway to the mountains of Snowdonia. Its beautiful setting and old-fashioned stone buildings make it North Wales’ most popular non-coastal resort.
The beautiful Dolwyddelan Castle is located in the midst of the Snowdonia Mountains and boasts spectacular views of the surrounding area. The medieval ruins, built in the 13th century, are referred to by many as the ‘Castle of Wales’. The Fairy Glen is a beautiful, natural landscape given its name after the mystical spirits thought to live there. The collection of mini waterfalls enclosed within the woodlands is considered one of the prettiest sights in North Wales.
The centre of the village is filled with pretty, independent shops, many of which sell all your hiking essentials. If you’re after more of an adrenaline rush, be sure to pay a visit to the Zip World Fforest. Climb and swing your way through the high ropes course, which ensure you the very best views of the incredible Snowdonia mountain region.
