You are spoilt for choice in Betwys,eating and drinking, plenty to choose from..from breakfast, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants..two local supermarkets are pretty well stocked, of course you pay a little of over the odds locally. If you are happy to travel a bit Llandudno , is a much larger town with huge choice of larger supermarkets and budget Aldi. We used the walking books in the cottage, and really enjoyed the circular walks we did, the Short walk around the village golf course and out past St Michaels church over the little suspension bridge is nice..go in the church it's really atmospheric. Capel Curig was a longer walk and really enjoyable with great scenery. Locally, we used Olif a Welsh tapas restaurant...one night just for a glass of wine, and another to sample the tapas..Delicious, and we thought good value, they use local produce as much as they are able. The Stables, is busy with a nice buzz...busy always , we had one bar meal which was pub food but no complaints.. Pont y pair , a pub a little further up the road opposite the bridge is really worth a visit , the food is home cooked, with a good choice and staff are very welcoming and helpful, good choice of beer and wines, don't be put off by the old fashioned green gloss paint..as we were ...it's lovely inside. The cottage has a tv with lots of dvds , we didn't use at all, as we were out walking every day, nice to catch up with the news.Missed wi FI,a bit just for sourcing more than anything, but most of the pubs have free wi FI if needed, which we used. Snowdonia was on our bucket list...and we succeeded...a very hot day so got sunburnt, but so worthwhile and huge sense of achievement...not for the faint hearted ..it's very challenging , glad to come home for a shower after that trek. would highly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to visit north Wales perfect spot and train and buses on your doorstep

We had a wonderful stay with everything we needed to hand. The location is amazing with really good local walls and great views. It was perfect for our Collie too!!!
