Soak up idyllic scenery with holiday cottages in Betws-y-Coed.

Betws-y-Coed (which translates to “prayer house in the wood”) is a small village in Conwy, Wales. It is commonly referred to as the Gateway to Snowdonia as it sits at the Conwy Valley border into the Snowdonia National Park. The village is small and welcoming with a history which stretches back to 1254AD. Sitting between two areas of natural interest, and lying close to the river Conwy, there are many activities, both strenuous and relaxing, which make Betws-y-Coed a favourite for couples, families and groups of friends.

HomeAway has a number of holiday cottages in Betws-y-Coed catering for both couples and large groups. Although many of the cottages are traditional in their appearance, so as to blend in with the stunning surrounding scenery, and have retained their rustic charm, they also feature modern appliances and equipment such as Wi-fi, satellite television, laundry facilities and dishwashers. Children and pets are also welcome in many cottages whilst gardens and on-site parking are also a recurring feature.

Holiday apartments in Betws-y-Coed are the ideal base from which to enjoy the many delights of Conwy, Snowdonia and the surrounding areas. However, Wales has a great deal more to offer a traveller. The South-West Coast is renowned for some of the UK’s finest beaches and from Tenby in Pembrokeshire, there are numerous holiday cottages within reach of a handful of Blue Flag beaches. Meanwhile, the historic market town of Denbigh provides an array of traditional Welsh cottages perfect for a relaxing cultural break.

Things to do

Snowdonia: For many people, the main reason for staying in a holiday apartment in Betws-y-Coed is to enjoy the nearby Snowdonia National Park. From walking and hill climbing to bird watching and nature trails, there is no shortage of activities here whatever the age or level of fitness of the traveller. In addition, newer activities such as caving, zip lining and water based activities are becoming increasingly popular within the park.

Conwy: Less than 17 miles away from holiday cottages in Betws-y-Coed is the thriving town of Conwy where there is a wealth of activities and attractions on offer. In addition to traditional artisan shops, there is the Valley Maze, which covers an area of 2 acres and was designed by the world renowned Giovanni Angelo Jacovelli, the stunning Bodnant Gardens, an 80 acre National Trust Property and the famed Conwy Castle which was built in 1283 for King James I.

Betws-y-Coed: In addition to awe inspiring views across the Conwy Valley and the Snowdonia National Park, there is a wealth of history right on the doorstep of your holiday apartment in Betws-y-Coed. Local places of interest include the 14th-century St Michael’s Church and the Valley Railway Museum.

Family attractions: Betws-y-Coed offers a central location for some of the best family attractions in North Wales. From the Treetop Adventure Attraction which sits in the village itself, to the Welsh Mountain Zoo in nearby Colwyn Bay, there is much to entertain families and children of all ages. The area also plays host to the Greenwood Forest Park which has won numerous tourism awards.

Weather

The climate in Betws-y-Coed tends to be mild yet temperate and is known for being wet. Whilst temperatures in the summer months of June, July and August have been known to reach 21°C, an average temperature of 18°C is more the norm. Within these months, temperatures also dip quite dramatically after dusk, so a warm day might give way to a much cooler evening. The main rainy season tends to fall between September and February but the location of the village means that rain is possible at any time.

Travel

Although the village is small, Betws-y-Coed is often used as a landmark for travel, with the main village junction showing frequently in directions. This is because the village is so approachable from all directions. From Llangollen it is easily accessed by the A5 whilst the A470 feeds directly from Colwyn Bay. From these two points, it is relatively easy for visitors from throughout the UK to find the village. In addition, Betws-y-Coed is also served by a train station and receives a regular bus and coach service.

Lovely, absolutely beautiful.

5 of 5
The property was beautiful, all fittings and furnishings were lovely. The bed was wonderful, we had lovely sleeps. It was close to all shops and we had no problems at all. We could not have been happier with our hosts and our stay there. We would also like to say we hope the new building is going well. Thank you so much for a lovely and welcome stay.
