Cottage in Betws Y Coed, Snowdonia, North Wales - Peaceful Location With Spectacular Views - 15 Minute Walk To The Village
About George Smith
Hello, my name is George.
George Smith purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why George Smith chose Betws-y-Coed
I've been fortunate enough to own Glanrhyd Cottage for approximately eight years. I have been visiting this area for many years and instantly fell in love with the ruin and always hoped to own it, so when the owners offered it to me I jumped at the chance. It has been a labour of love as the cottage was a complete wreck when we purchased it with a tree growing inside, we spent two years restoring it with a lovely local traditional builder.
What makes this Cottage unique
I love the solitude, views, walks and fishing.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
The cottage and surroundings are stunning. Sitting listening to the river running outside and taking in the view was heaven. The location is great for visits to the mountains and waterfalls and despite the weather not being at it's best we had a fantastic break. Would definitely like to get back there to do it all again
Beautiful cottage, excellent hosts
The setting could not be more perfect for this beautiful holiday retreat. The cottage is clean, comfortable and well equipped. The bathroom is particularly lovely with a double ended bath and ample hot water - a must after walking many miles in the stunning local area. The hosts are responsive and very helpful. Would highly recommend a stay here.
Thanks so much we hope you will return some day!
Wonderful cottage in a beautiful setting.
We have had a wonderful stay. The cottage is well equipped and spacious. We were out climbing each day, so were happy to stay in at night to cook and relax in front of the log burner. The kitchen had everything we needed. It really has been like home from home. The surroundings were beautiful and the location central for exploring Snowdonia. We will be back. Thank you.
Thanks so much we look forward to seeing you again!
Beautifuly situated cottage
The house has a beautiful situation overlooking a river surrounded by fields. The house is very cosy and suits two couples very well.
The only negatives I have the tricky turning into the property on a busy road but clear instructions where given how to manage this.
Also the walk along the busy road to get into o Betws y Coad, don’t forget your touches at night.
Overall a very relaxing place to stay, we all would be happy to visit again.
Nice cottage in good location with a twenty minute walk to the town centre.
We stayed recently at the cottage and really enjoyed ourselves there. The cottage itself is well equipped with everything you need. We had a little trouble with the hob as the lighter for the gas wasn't working although we did eventually find a lighter but after several days of burnt fingers this wasn't ideal. However, I'm sure the owner will fix this for the next visitors as he was very positive about this when we reported it to him. The interior could do with a little spruce up as several walls have splashes and marks on the walls and it could do with a fresh coat of paint. Despite these small points, the location is very good for the town of Betws-y-Coed and it is an easy walk to the town centre (but not for those who don't like a nice walk). We would definitely go there again and the little points I've mentioned wouldn't put us off using this cottage again.
Thank you for your review. After a long busy summer the cottage is in definite need of the TLC we have embarked on this week. Fortunately the gas hob wasn’t broken, the electric fuse to the side of it must have been inadvertently switched off sorry about that. We’re happy you are likely to return one day!
Wonderful no complaints at all!
We are approximately 30 minutes drive from the nearest beach
The nearest village is just a couple of short miles away and can be easily walked to from the cottage.
Directly in front of the cottage is a well-known pool which tends to hold sea trout and salmon (depending on time of year), occasionally it might be possible to fish but this is subject to the consent of the fishing rights holders. All fishing is subject to arrangement and a charge of twenty five pounds for the day, there is also plenty of other fishing in the area we suggest purchasing day tickets through the local angling club in Betws Y Coed and we would be pleased to offer you advice. The fishing is subject to availability and must be booked and paid for in advance. You will be required to purchase a national rod licence, visit the environment agency website for more details.
