Beautifull Cottage With Views Mountain Stream And Pool

Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Sleeps 8. 3 Bedrooms. 3 Baths.

Bron Nant means on the brow of the hill beside the stream. This aptly describes this lovely holiday cottage situated three miles from Betws-y-Coed in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park. The cottage lies at an elevation of approximately seven hundred and fifty feet above sea level. Facing south west it offers unobscured views of the hills and peaks of the Snowdon range. Due also to its elevation stunning sunsets can be enjoyed through out the year.

The cottage was built around 1750 and was originally two cottages together. In 2004 a complete renovation of the building took place which was completed in early 2009. It is now available for rent and can accommodate up to eight adults. We hope you enjoy browsing our website and very much look forward to making you welcome should you decided to visit.

The property is listed as 4 Star with Visit Wales and has over 40 five star reviews with XXXXXXX.

What a find, the cottage is everything I wanted and more!!

  • 5 of 5

The directions given to find this gem of a holiday cottage were spot on. This is one of the best holiday lets that I have ever had.

Recently refurbished to a very high standard with an excellent layout, facilities which sleeps 8 comfortably. The layout downstairs is open plan almost with a separate bathroom and a very handy utility room with washer and dryer which we put to good use.Me and some friends stayed to do mountain biking so the location was just right and only a 10 minute ride from the Penmachno trail.

The owners were very nice and on the last day we met Jeremy who had lots of knowledge to share about the area and activities.

As it was winter we did not use the outdoor natural pool or snug but all looked like a great facility to have in the warmer months.
