This 19th century stone-built cottage is in the village of Penmachno just 4 miles from Betws-y-Coed and has one double bedroom with ensuite shower. Llannerch was originally built in the early 19th Century and has been tastefully converted to offer accommodation for 2 people; a haven for couples looking to spend some time together. Exposed beams, a stone fire-place and a wood-burning stove are complemented by thoughtful decoration throughout, helping the cottage retain much of its original charm. The accommodation is arranged in an open-plan style and even has its own balcony from which to enjoy a glass of wine or simply soak up the views of... the surrounding hills.

Region: Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.
Town: Betws-y-Coed is North Wales' most popular inland resort. It is where the River Conwy meets its three tributaries flowing from the west: the Llugwy, the Lledr and the Machno. Much of Betws-y-Coed was built in Victorian times and it is the principal village of the Snowdonia National Park. Set in a beautiful valley in the Snowdonia Forest Park, it is ideal for outdoor-activity holidays and the village boasts numerous craft and outdoor-activity shops. The popular Swallow Falls is nearby, surrounded by dense woodland and magnificent mountain country. The spectacular scenery is enhanced by cascading waterfalls, hill-top lakes, river pools and ancient bridges. Ever since the Victorian artists flocked to the area and formed the first artist colony, it has been a Mecca for those that appreciate its unique natural beauty. At the railway station is a Museum with a miniature railway, shop and restaurant. The old 14th Century church of St Michael's is one of the oldest in Wales and is well worth a viewing.
Additional amenities include: high chair, cooker.Read more

Llannerch is a lovely little clean cottage. Open plan with log fire; a lttle dark perhaps - but that is the way these cottages are. It was cleaner than expected and fitted to very high standard. No chintz which we thought was great. The location is great with Betws-y-Coed only a 10 minute drive away. Walking was good directly from the Cottage into the woods to the west of Penmachno. Great mountain biking is to be had here, too. The main road through Penmachno is actually a cul-de-sac so there isn't much traffic through the village. Although quite a bit of what there is seems to go up past the Cottage to the riding stables some miles away. Unexpectedly Wifi was available via the pub's wireless router. The owner was very freindly and helpful and I would be glad to return.

Everything you need; ordinary, but comfortable. The village pub has a thriving local clientele and made us very welcome, but be warned - it doesn't do food and opens only Thursday to Sunday. Good local bus service until late evening to and from Betws-y-Coed if you want to leave the car. Good walks straight from the cottage.
Fabulous Romantic anniversary Weekend!
Left on 01/04/2011 for a stay in November 2010 | Mollymoss
The cottage was just what we wanted, a romantic hideaway for our wedding anniversary, very clean, everything we needed was there, they even found us an ice bucket for our bubbly! The owners were very friendly and helpful. The locals are friendly when you see them, which is not very often, which is nice if you want the privacy, which we did. Betws y Coed has the most fantastic places to eat, not cheap, but not over priced if you go to the right places. The owners and locals will recommend the best places, taxi service was great but make sure you get the local one from Betws Y Coed, they are great and very reasonable, there is only one firm based there. The other taxi firms are from further afield and charge extra for coming out to the village. All in all a fabulous weekend!!!
The only quibble we had was the floorboards outside the bathroom were a bit flimsy and bouncy, but we just got used to stepping over them, and in the living area they have two very comfy chairs, we would have preferred a two seater sofa to snuggle up on, in front of the fabulous fireplace with log burner! Will definately stay again!!! Wonderful!!!
Plenty of activities too with mountain bike trail just around the corner.
COTTAGE IN HEART OF SNOWDONIA
Left on 12/03/2009 for a stay in August 2009 | Mardy Annie
We thoroughly enjoyed out stay in the very picturesque village of Penmachno, just outside Betws-y-Coed. Plenty to see and do in the area. Cottage was small but very well equipped. There was a pub nearby serving meals and a cafe. The village does not have a shop and parking is limited, although no great problem.
