The North Wales region
North Wales has a heritage as rich as its spectacular scenery with the mountains of Snowdonia, beautiful beaches and medieval castles. The area offers a range of opportunities from traditional cultural events, historical exploration and heritage sites to outdoor activities and sightseeing which always prove popular with families, outdoor sports enthusiasts and also those just looking for peace and tranquillity.
Numerous visitor attractions include Snowdonia National Park. The popular seaside resort of Llandudno, several World Heritage sites like the stunning Caernarfon Castle and the impressive Pontcysyllte aqueduct designed by Thomas Telford, there is the Mediterranean styled village of Portmeirion, not to mention the many art galleries, studios, museums and theatres which form part of the rich cultural heritage of this amazing country.
Betws-y-Coed sits at the head of the Conwy Valley and is known as the gateway to Snowdonia. Surrounded by steep wooded valley sides, it is here that the three tributaries of the River Conwy meet creating an alpine feel with cascading waterfalls, river pools and ancient bridges. Most famous of all are the magnificent Swallow Falls, situated where the Llugwy River hurls itself into a spectacular chasm. Betws-y-Coed is a haven for walkers with numerous tracks passing through the forest and the village is a centre for outdoor activities with a large number of outward bound shops which line the main street along with restaurants, cafes and pubs.

"Beautiful 2 storey Cottage"
Beautiful , newly built apartment. Very cozy and in a great location for touring Northern Wales. Very clean. Almost too big for 2 people. Difficult for a long stay though without internet access. Would have been nice to have a coffee maker and a few more cooking dishes. No facecloths provided. Other than that it was a wonderful stay. Owner has beautiful furnishings. Would HIGHLY recommend Smithy Cottage.

We were made very welcome by Mr. De Prez the owner. Smithy Cottage was just a lovely cosy home from home and very well appointed. It was a treat to return each evening after days out and relax in comfort. Bed was very comfortable. Betws y Coed was a handy place to be for visits to Penrhyn Castle, Bodnant Gardens, Portmerion, Llandudno - all worth a visit. We ate at Betys y Coed Bistro, to be recommended, The Royal Oak Hotel, very good, and the Dragon Chinese restaurant, also very good. For eating in the kitchen was very well equipped. We could not fault Smithy Cottage and would recommend it highly. May not be suitable for anyone with mobility problems though - that is the only reservation we have.
