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.

We arrived very late (2am), which wasn't an issue at all, the lounge light and heating were left on so we settled in straight away. The room's are big enough to move around and store bags easily, the beds were very comfy with plenty of pillows, not the usual flat ones you have to fold in half! The welcome pack was great, the variety and convenience was more than we expected, including the wood supply. I would highly recommend the cottage to anyone wanting to stay in the area. Jane was very friendly and communicated everything very well, directions were perfect, thank you. One thing to consider if visiting in the winter....the road leading up to the cottage was frozen in places and we needed to grit the road (yellow boxes on road) but this all added to the adventure! Overall the cottage exceeded expectations and we would definitely book again if looking to come to the area. Thank you very much.

Location in the National Park is perfect. Gorgeous local walks along with excellent restaurants and cafes. We recommend visiting the Ugly House Tea Room.

Penmachno is a sleepy little village built on two sides of a river with lovely walks and mountain bike trails on the doorstep. You are just 4 miles from Betws y Coed and 2 miles from Conwy Falls so you don't have to venture far for shops, restaurants and spectacular scenery and falls. Floriane, the owner, is available by telephone or email and there is a local contact should you need anything. The cottage is well equipped and has heaters in addition to the wood burner so you will be very toasty even on the coldest of nights. The small garden is dog friendly. Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely home and we hope to return one day.
