Cosy, warm, welcoming, pet friendly, beautiful Location, an escape from usual busy life. Horse riding at Ty Coch was great-only 2 miles away. Surf Snowdonia is good fun. Betws-y-Coed is a lovely town to visit and eat out and close by.Katie - 5th August 2017
The cottage was fantastic with superb views that were to die for!!!
Tips: There is never enough time to fit everything in as there is so much to do and see - so best book a second visit to try and fit it all in!!!Couple from Carmarthenshire - 22nd June 2017
The property was in a perfect location surrounded by truly beautiful views. The property was only 30 minutes from the Llanberis Snowdonia path. There was a lovely local pub just a few minutes walk down the road and a beautiful town just 5 minute drive which had lots of places to eat and drink.Family from High Wycombe - 15th May 2017
Cottage was very comfortable, with the owners very approachable and enthusiastic to make your stay enjoyable. Betws-y-coed is a lovely town to wander around. There are a few walks based from the town, taking in some spectacular scenery.Chris from Peterborough - 21st March 2017
The holiday was perfect. Fantastic rural location with easy access to the mountains of Snowdonia. The cottage was spotlessly clean and cosy. The owners very friendly and welcoming.
Can recommend the walk round Llyn Elsie and Alwen Reservoir. Lots of forest trails straight from the cottage. Moel Siabod an interesting mountain with great scrambling.Lesley from Carlisle, Cumbria - 26th February 2017
