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 was founded around a monastery late in the 6th Century. It grew very slowly with the development of the local lead-mining industry and today has earned the nickname of the Gateway to Snowdonia' and is one of North Wales' most popular holiday destinations. As part of the Snowdonia National Park it is surrounded by miles of unspoilt countryside and ancient mountains and is home to an abundance of wildlife and some rare species of plants. This is a Mecca for walkers, horse-riders and climbers looking to pit themselves against the trials offered by Mount Snowdon. There are a variety of attractions in and around Betwsy-Y-Coed, such as Fairy Glen, a secluded gorge and beauty spot on the River Conwy. The Swallow Falls are also extremely popular and offer a dramatic highlight to any visit. There is a good selection of pubs in the village, with a number of restaurants and shops.
Additional amenities include: game room, high chair, cooker.Read more

Cosy cottage with beautiful views
Left on 12/01/2011 for a stay in October 2011 | Nikki Archibald
The cottage was clean and well equipped,with a tea tray and cakes left out for arrival. Everything worked which makes a change! There are fantastic views of the mountains from here and a somewhat challenging farm road to access the cottage. To travel to the many places of interest does involve a bit of a drive down valleys and around mountains but the scenery makes it worthwhile.The area has many, many castles, beautiful lakes and a lot of sheep! A trip to the top of Snowdon is a must - but
best done on a relatively clear day. We would happily
return in the future.
Fantastic views, Really felt we were in the heart of Wales.

The service was fine, we could phone the owner for information or her eggs. We were never intruded upon, but felt she was there to help if need be, give local info about restaurants or beaches.
We liked the home, it had a cottage feel with all mod cons including a washing machine in an outhouse. The only snag about the beds was that my daughter [45 yrs] slept on the spare bed in the double bedroom. She found it incredibly hard and woke up stiff and painful. She didn't want to share the double bed with me, found me disturbing [up in the night.]
We had to go a few miles into Betswy Coed for food, but the Spar there had everything we wanted and stayed open late every day so shopping was not a problem. The distance to all the different mountains took quite a while to get to, the situation was good, but perhaps not quite as central as we would have liked. Not a big deal really, but we only had a week and we wanted to do so much, a lot of our time was travelling.
I liked the views over such a vast skyline of hills and the lovely wild flowers, streams and walks straight from the house. We didn't like sky television, couldn't see the programmes we wanted, they couldn't be found. The boys liked the peace of the place - they had come from the busy city of Shanghai, but being boys, they wanted to play football and found the garden a bit too small for that. I don't think they were too impressed with the games room, but as we were out most of time, these issues were minor.
I know they enjoyed their holiday immensely, they had wanted to go to Wales for a long time and they reffered to the fields, the sheep, the beaches and their different hikes many times when they got back to my home. They wrote and thanked me warmly when they went back to Shanghai.

A warm welcome from the owner, a lovely, clean, spacious cottage in the most gorgeous setting. Peaceful, quiet with wonderful mountain views. Brilliant for walking in the mountains, close to Betwys Coed for eating out- best food was the Silver Fountain pub nearby- excellent curries! Weather was unbelievably good- coast about 45 mins to the remote, un-peopled beaches (won't say where, then everyone will go there!) We will definitely return; highly recommended.
