At the end of a private track & surrounded by fields with sheep and cows. The garden has a picnic bench and purpose built barbecue and patio area with a table and chairs all overlooking the fabulous river Conwy. Swimming in the river is allowed and has steps down to the shore.

The North Wales region

Glanrhyd cottage is located at the edge of the village of Betws-y-Coed in the Snowdonia National Park, North Wales. The cottage is secluded and access by car is gained by driving down a private gravel track. Depending on the time of year there may well be sheep or cows grazing in the surrounding fields.

Betws-y-Coed is a pretty village and popular tourist destination with many attractions. It is ideally situated off of the A55 and easy to get to by both road and train.


The cottage has a breathtaking location overlooking the sparkling clear water of the river Conwy in the heart of the Conwy valley.

It is surrounded by mountains and forestry and opposite is the popular Betws -y-Coed golf club (see activities).

Being so close to Betws-y-Coed train station (15 mins by foot through delightful countryside - you might need wellies on occasion!) it is not essential to have a car. Trains run daily to nearby Llandudno Junction, however, we would encourage you to check train times before booking.

"I loved this place, it's really quite magical."

The photos on the website don't do it justice. The cottage is tastefully decorated, with great central heating and a wood burning stove for those cosy winter evenings curled up on the sofa after a long walk. We were spoilt for choice between hikes into the mountains or walks through the wooden glens with streams burbling at every step, (I saw my first leaping salmon, it was amazing!). All that exercise gave us the perfect excuse to tuck, guilt free, into several delicious Welsh tea cakes the owner had thoughtfully left for us. They also leave a really useful guide of things to do in the area and places to eat etc and we found everyone really helpful and friendly. We'll definitely go back, particularly as my boyfriend is a rabid fishing enthusiast (!), but happily there was plenty to keep me happy too!

"What a gem"

A lovely cottage in a fantastic location/setting. If you want peace and tranquillity, while only being a 10 minute walk from the centre of Betws -y- Coed, and everything the village has to offer, then this is the cottage for you. The cottage has been loving restored to a high standard and is very comfortable. Set just of the main road, with the river running along the bottom of the garden, it's hard to believe how close you are to the village as it feels so peaceful and remote.

"Peaceful relaxing Cottage in delightful setting."

We highly recommend this Cottage to anyone wanting to get away from it all and yet be able to have the comforts of home within a beautiful setting. There are some great places to eat in the Town which is just a 10 minute walk away, If you like to have a round of Golf you could not be any nearer to a course or just enjoy watching players from the Garden. Altogether we cannot fault the Cottage or area it is situated in.

Thank you very much - yes the fish and chip shop is great which is why it is one of the few restaurants we recommend. We hope to see you again!

"A Delightful Place to Explore Snowdonia"

Glanryhd Cottage is located next to the River Conwy and a short walk from Betws-y-coed. It has been extremely well restored and has everything you could possibly want. The wood stove is cosy and there's lots of space (for two people). We came by car but used local buses and the train all week. The bus driver will drop you off outside if you ask! (there is a footpath down from the main road as well as the road access). The garden is really nice - overlooking the river - but we didn't spend much time there as it was December, after all. We will come back in Spring/Summer and do some of the walks we had not managed to complete!

Many thanks, George

"Perfect in every way"

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at Glanrhyd , the cottage was clean, well equipped and beautifully decorated.
We felt the cottage was ideally located, private, with views over the river and within easy walking distance to the village.
It's one of those places you look forward to returning after a day out to relax and escape for a while.
Highly recommended

With many thanks
