Town: Betws-y-Coed is renowned as one of North Wales' most popular inland tourist destinations. A major part of the village was built in Victorian times, on the site where the River Conwy meets its three tributaries in a beautiful and peaceful valley. Betws-Y-Coed is now one of the major villages in the Snowdonia National Park; over 800 square miles of unspoilt scenery and woodland, which plays host to a variety of wildlife and a number of rare species of plant. Of exceptional interest are the many bridges in the area, such as Pont-y-Pair and the Miner's Bridge. Many of these date back to the 13th Century and offer a picturesque insight into the region's past. The village is well served by inns, pubs, craft and outdoor activity shops. For more amenities, such as restaurants, Holyhead is only a short drive away.

This was a beautiful house in a perfect location. It is down a private road, just a short walk from the center of Betws-y-Coed, the tourist information center and the rail station. The house was very clean, comfortable and had everything you could possibly need. The beds were very comfortable. The grounds were gorgeous and well kept and you could sit outside at a a nice table and enjoy the sunny weather. The rooms are all a very nice size so you do not have to step over or around furniture or friends. I highly recommend this and would stay again. Elsie, the landlord, lives in the back and is delightful and helpful. It doesn't get any better than this for vacation rentals.

The cottage is cosy and well equipped, and the location is amazing only a few minutes walk to the centre of the village but you feel like you are in the middle of no-where with incredible views. The village is lovely, with lots to see and do close by.

We loved the cottage and the location was so perfect, it was a most enjoyable stay. We had a little bit of trouble finding the cottage, as we were arriving in the opposite direction to the sheet directions. The warmth of the house was very welcoming and cosy. The choir evening and the antique fair in the village was excellent and We enjoyed the whole experience of snowdonia. thank you.

We have stayed in the Royal Oak farmhouse several times over the past few years and consider we have found the perfect retreat. We have been so overwhelmed with the beauty and character of this property, that we have been coming back whenever we can.
The farmhouse is delightfully situated in a beautiful garden right in the centre of Betws-y-coed, five minutes away from all amenities and yet so peaceful, you would think you were in the middle of open countryside.
We always enjoy walking and exploring new places in Wales and the Royal Oak Farmhouse is an ideal base to travel to most of these places. Beddgellert, LLanwrst, Barmouth, Conwy, to name but a few, and it's a most welcoming place to come back to.
When we have been travelling all day it's so nice to know that we are returning to settle down in a lovely warm house in front of a log fire to enjoy the cosiness of this adorable place.
We cannot wait until our Christmas break next week (December 2009), when we will again spend a most wonderful time at this precious farmhouse. It really is like coming home.

This cottage is the perfect location for exploring North Wales. The
accommodation is very comfortable & whilst situated in the middle of Betws-
y-coed it is off the beaten track & very private. The garden is superb & ideal
for children,although small children will need to be supervised as there is a
stream within the grounds. Some excellent restaurants & walks close by so you
can leave the car behind & totally relax. The owner has use of part of the
property at the rear, with a separate entrance, but you hardly know she's
there. I would highly recommend this rental.
