Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Betws-y-Coed, Snowdonia National Park, North Wales, Wales
The cottage has been sympathetically restored by local craftsmen employing traditional methods and environmentally friendly materials. Whilst authentic and traditional, the cottage enjoys all mod cons.

The cottage is tastefully designed and ideally suited to discerning couples seeking a romantic break and solitude. However, it can comfortably accommodate up to four people in two double bedrooms at opposing ends of the property, allowing for space and privacy. Depending on season we sometimes offer a reduced rate for a single couple sharing one bedroom only. When booked using one bedroom only the other bedroom will be locked.

We are also able to offer fishing on the river Conwy adjacent to the cottage.

NB. The cottage garden borders the river Conwy, whilst the garden is enclosed we urge caution to families with children. Please enquir...

Interaction with guests
We try to greet all guests on arrival but otherwise we are pretty relaxed and hands off and will leave you in peace, although the housekeeper is not faraway if you need us for anything. If you would like us to suggest things to do please just ask we would be happy to help you plan trips or activities. Plus there is lots of reading materials in the cottage with useful information on the area.

We’ve not long arrived home from a wonderful stay at this idyllic cottage. Down a track, overlooking the river, surrounded by beautiful scenery. It really couldn’t have been any better. Situated minutes away from Betws-Y-Coed, a great position to explore from with many great eateries...More

About the neighbourhood
The cottage has a breathtaking location overlooking the sparkling clear water of the river Conwy in the heart of the Conwy valley. It is surrounded by mountains and forestry and opposite is the popular Betws -y-Coed golf club (see activities). Being so close to Betws-y-Coed train station (15 mins by foot through delightful countryside - you might need wellies on occasion!) it is not essential to have a car. Trains run daily to nearby Llandudno Junction, however, we would encourage you to check train times before booking.
