Great place. It was very central to the major village of Betws y Coed & for visiting all of Nth Wales. The place has real history & the Host had left some history of the cottage to read that gave real background(URL HIDDEN) Well renovated with all the conveniences

A lovely spacious house just outside the village of Dolwyddelan but close to the castle and just under a mile to walk into the village for the local shop, pub or train station. There are some lovely walks around the house and it's in a great position for driving to lots of tourist attractions including Snowdon, Zip wire and Surf Snowdonia. The house itself was homely & comfortable with spacious rooms and beautiful views. The owner had kindly left some welcome goodies so we could make a cup of tea when we got there and sample some Welsh treats.

Lovely cottage in the countryside. Perfect for our group of 6 friends in Wales for a long weekend to visit Zip World. Highly recommend.

It exceeded our expectations on many counts. Much prettier and more spacious than expected. We were a family of 7 adults ranging from 17 to 60 years and we all enjoyed our stay thoroughly. Our main aim was to climb Snowdon which we achieved in Sun! Marvellous. We would love to stay in the cottage again and can think of lots we still need to do. There was nothing missing at the cottage - very well equipped. Loads of varied activities for all in the area whilst being located in a secluded and picturesque spot .

Lovely Cottage, nice and clean and welcoming. Great position and fantastic views with some good walks around though we did pick a wet weekend! would definitely recommend to others and we are more than likely to come again. Lovely log stoves & under floor heating in the kitchen. Whole family loved it as did the dog!

A lovely property just 20 minutes from Betws-y-Coed. 6 of us stayed for 3 nights for New Years. The cottage was big and spacious, with a well equipped kitchen, comfortable living room and two log burners, giving it a very cosy and rustic atmosphere. Although just off the main road it was still quiet inside the cottage. Dylan was a proactive host, ensuring the gas for the heating was topped up when it ran out and even came to fix the security light on New Years Eve.
