The cottage has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The slate floored sitting room is warmed by a wood-burner set in a stone fireplace, while the large kitchen with dining area benefits from a high ceiling giving a feeling of spaciousness.

The countryside around Bwthyn Angell is magnificent, with stunning country scenery, occasional waterfalls, and slate quarries to explore within walking distance. Within easy reach of the cottage is the popular Penmachno Mountain Bike trail, the outdoor pursuits centre of Betws-y-Coed and all of the delights of the Snowdonia National Park including rock climbing, Zip World zip wires at Bethesda and Blaenau and the Forest Coaster in Betws Y Coed, hill walking, the Tree Tops Adventure High Ropes Course, Go Below mine exploration and the Snowdon Mountain Railway.
