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.

"Very comfortable, relaxing, quiet holiday cottage in lovely countryside"

An excellent holiday cottage for the family and excellent value for money because it sleeps up to 6. It's a nice mixture of the old and new, the original 18th century rooms and a big modern kitch… More

"Needs some superficial DIY"

Cottage looks pleasant from the outside, was warm and inviting inside. On closer inspection parts were slightly grubby with spiders webs hanging in and around some lights and light shades and empty bo… More

Many thanks for taking the time to feed back on your stay. We are glad that you felt the cottage was warm and cosy. We were disappointed to hear that you felt that the cottage needed some superficial DIY. We have arranged to inspect immediately. We have deliberately avoided wifi to ensure that it is a "get away from it all" place, but in light of your comments will survey past guests for their views.
Kindest regards,

I liked the trust Carol had with guests staying there - no asking for refundable deposits, post a book back later if you haven't finished it, lots of toys, plenty of crockery, no coin in the slot… More

"Silence..and the lambs, but far from a horror story!"

For our first family holiday(we have an 8 month old baby girl) we chose this cottage based on location and previous reviews. We were so glad we did - the cottage really was a home from home and so well equipped. Although the location was fairly remote - it was so quiet and picturesque with sheep on every hillside, nurturing lots of spring lambs. A car is essential for getting around, unless hiking and hillwalking are of interest, but driving around was a pleasure in itself. The little village of Llanrwst is lovely and has the nearest supermarket - the butchers there are excellent and the quality produce is a fraction of supermarket prices. We can't wait to book again and hopefully share many more family holidays in such idyllic accomodation.


Thanks very much for taking the time to review your stay at the cottage. The spring lambs are lovely. I hope to welcome you back to Bryn Conwy in the future.
Kind regards

"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.
