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

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.

From board games in front of an open fire to drinking a bottle of prosecco in the hot tub (Thank you to Mark & Eloise for the prosecco). An absolute gem of a weekend away and we cant wait to return for a longer stay. The beach is walking distance away and the scenery is breathtaking!

We had everything we needed for ourselves and two dogs they loved the log burner, rayburner and long walks. The bottle of wine was really appreciated and a nice touch. We are hoping to book again next year when the weather is warmer and we have the lighter nights so we can explore the area. Thank you to Ingrid for making our stay special
