The North Wales region

Snowdonia National Park is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Ysbyty Ifan is an historic village within the park. Until 1189, Ysbyty Ifan was known as Dôl Gynwal. Then, it came to the attention of the Knights of St John, who set up a hospice. The church marks the spot where the old hospice stood, and it contains many remnants that tell of the areaâ??s rich history. Abraham Lincoln's grandmother came from the village. A beautiful, tranquil village, Ysbyty Ifan is within easy reach of Betws Y Coed and an excellent base for touring this beautiful part of the world. There are excellent walks for all abilities and ages, cycling, canoeing, fishing, horseriding, go karting, golf and much more. Further afield is the North Wales coast and castles.


Situated on a National Trust Estate near Betws-y-Coed, this charming Grade 11 Listed Cottage enjoys excellent visitor reviews and glorious panoramic views of the National Park's valleys and hills.

Find total relaxation in the peace and tranquility amid beautiful walks and a wealth of wildlife, including the rare Red Kite at certain times of the year. Embrace the tranquility and calm of village life.

Nestled in the hills of the National Park, it is the perfect location for rest and relaxation.

There is an abudance of good quality pubs and restaurants within a 10 minute drive of the cottage.

"True Escapism - a real gem of a find"

From the minute we walked into this gorgeous grade II listed cottage and saw the original dark oak staircase and low oak beams then spotted the inglenook fireplace which stretched almost the length of the living room, we were utterly, thoroughly charmed.

Myself and 3 other mums visited this cottage to recharge after a hectic few Christmas weeks and this cottage certainly did the trick. It is ideally situated in a small village close to Betsw - y- Coed hardly any traffic passing through and the sound of silence ( apart from the odd sheep ) was so relaxing - it makes such a difference when you need to unwind.

The cottage has extremely comfortable beds ( 2 double bedrooms and one twin) and one of the bedrooms has its own wash basin - very helpful of a morning to supplement the other two bathrooms. I had the best sleep I'd had in ages! The kitchen is a true party kitchen with all mod cons geared up for everyone ( babies included) and we enjoyed time sitting round the table with a bottle of wine ( or five) chatting and putting the world to rights before moving into the living room to sit round the log burner, enjoying the cosiness that the inglenook provided.

The kitchen overlooks a fabulous open space, a field complete with rugby posts and there is access to the field via a small gate in the garden at the back of the property. Ideal for when I return with my son. That plus the Wii and Sky channels means that we can all enjoy valuable family time in a very peaceful setting away from the demands of daily life.

There are plenty of scenic walks a short drive away - we did 2 of them - plus the bars and restaurants in Betws Coed are of a really good standard. This cottage is less than 2 hours drive away from the cities of the North West, so easy to get to and as we were leaving I couldn't help thinking that we simply must do this more often. A perfect weekend getaway.

Dear Nicola,
Thank you for taking the time to post your review of Bryn Conwy. We are delighted that you had a lovely stay and look foward to welcoming you back again.

"A cosy and welcoming cottage in Snowdonia"

This is a lovely cottage set in a tiny hamlet next to the river bridge. In the countryside but only 10 minutes away from Betws-y-Coed and the famous Swallow Falls. The cottage has all mod cons but has a very homely feel and you certainly feel like you have escaped from city life. The rooms are well decorated and the cottage is well maintained throughout. Amazing scenery and plenty of walks together with good shops and cafes in Betws-y-Coed make this a great location to explore Snowdonia. This was our second stay too and we will be back again.

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review for Bryn Conwy. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

"Idyllic stay - fabulous facilities and peace."

This cottage is a wonderful find. From spacious bedrooms, to a large space behind the cottage for playing and burning off energy,to the wonderful kitchen with every mod con.
We travelled with our young daughter and she was very well catered for which meant we didn't have to travel with an array of baby equipment.
As newish parents, we loved the peace and tranquility of the cottage which meant we could relax, as well as plan wonderful day trips out.
There was also a range of equipment for young children to use including a wii but it was Sky sports that kept my husband happy!
We wil certainly return

Thank you for taking the time to review Bryn Conwy. We are delighted that you had a great time and look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

"All the comforts of home"

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the cottage in Feb 2012 me and the girls booked for a long weekend break. . Totally home from home with all your home comforts. A beautiful scenic area to go for walks very peaceful and tranquil setting. Less than 10 min drive into Betws-y-Coed where my friends and I strolled around the local area sightseeing, shopping,and enjoying lovely home made food in local cafe's during day. A lovely Family public house and restaurant in the town centre. A must is a visit to Portmaddoc a short drive away where we had a great day, the beach there is lovely. We are so looking forward to going back again this summer, but this time for a week.

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. We are delighted you had a great time and look forward to seeing you again.

"A hidden gem"

This cottage has the luxury of space with a great kitchen diner of generous proportions looking out onto its garden and fields behind. After a day out the lounge with its wood burner gives relaxation a real meaning as the lounge is well and comfortably furnished a real night in and lends itself to a real social feeling.
Just out of the front door there is just a very short stroll to a picturesque river. The cottage is set in a peaceful village of Ysbyty Ifan and has the advantage of being just a short drive away from Betws y Coed and the Snowdonia Nation Park. There are also walks direct from the house....I would recommend this cottage without hesitation and I also found the owners very approachable and reliable.
The cottage has a great feel and is well appointed.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review Bryn Conwy. We hope to welcome you back soon.
