Fig Tree Cottage
About the home
Alongside our heated, indoor, private, swimming pool which is open from 1st April - 30th September and with spectacular, panoramic views of the Conwy Valley below and the Snowdonian Mountain range beyond are two four star, open plan modern cottages set in over an acre of wonderful gardens with privately owned fishing lake on site and Lake Syberi - a 2 minute walk away. Away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life in a peaceful and outstanding countryside setting. Suitable for couples, older people and families.
These semi-detached, single-storey courtyard properties were converted from the stable blocks and although privately owned are located in the heart of the beautiful Bodnant Estate very close to Lake Syberi - permit fishing and Bodnant Gardens (National Trust). We are located on the slopes of the Conwy Valley which is designated an area of outstanding natural beauty. A mile and a half from Eglwysbach village. The views from your lounge window are breathtaking and you will have daily use of our heated, indoor, privately owned swimming pool (open from 1st April - 30th September and shared only between the two cottages and the owners). The owners live a short walk away on a separate part of their land - the cottages enjoy their own large space and privacy.

The North Wales / Denbigh/Flint/Conwy region
Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. Snowdonia National Park boasts breathtaking mountain scenery, crystal clear lakes and cascading waterfalls. Climb Snowdon, which at 1085m is Wales’ highest mountain, or travel to the summit in style on the charming Mountain Railway.
You can also explore the beautiful coastline: Colwyn Bay, historic Conwy, Victorian Llandudno or the Isle of Anglesey. To the south, there’s the lovely Brecon Beacons National Park, a haven of rugged moorland, forests and mountains that’s just perfect for nature lovers and walkers.
The Eglwysbach area
Set in the peaceful Conwy Valley is the lovely village of Eglwysbach, situated just a short drive through beautiful countryside from the World Heritage Site of Conwy town. Eglwysbach is a tiny, quiet village, with a church, a pub, a quaint village shop and a famous Country Show which for a few days in August each year sees the village transformed into a lively centre of activities for farmers, country people and tourists alike. The National Trust’s Bodnant Gardens are a ten minute drive away – offering peaceful and dramatic views and walks throughout the year.
In July 2012 Prince Charles and Camilla opened the Bodnant Welsh Food Centre, owned by the Bodnant Estate; with the Hayloft Restaurant - fine dining in the evening and a reasonably priced, high quality menu all day, cookery school, national bee-keeping centre, butchery, bakery, dairy , tea rooms and farm shops. All food is supplied by local farmers and producers and it is truly Welsh with high quality, local produce and excellent service. This is a venture that has cost over 8 million pounds and is an exciting and beautiful pace to visit. It is 1.5 miles from us and the nearest place to shop and eat.
Llanrwst, 5 miles away, is dominated by the 16th century narrow stone bridge, Pont Fawr, designed by Inigo Jones which is the gateway to Gwydir Castle and the huge Gwydir forest beyond. Conwy - a world heritage site, 6 miles away, is a superbly preserved medieval settlement, dominated by a splendid castle and enclosed by its Norman town walls – fortifications which include 21 towers and three gateways, creating an almost unbroken shield around the old town.
Conwy is home to ‘Britain’s Smallest House’, CADW’s Plas Mawr – the finest surviving Elizabethan house in Britain – and directly behind it the modern Royal Cambrian Academy where you can see the best of recent Welsh Art; and the National Trust's Aberconwy House – a perfectly preserved Medieval merchant’s house – is a short walk away. You can visit the Mussel Museum, enjoy the views from the picturesque fishing harbour or see a huge range of wildlife at the RSPB bird sanctuary on the estuary .
In addition to its fascinating historic landmarks, the town is also set against a stunning backdrop of beautiful hills and the incredible Snowdonia National Park – just a 20 minute drive away. Here, you can enjoy walking, cycling, climbing and bird watching as well as such things as trips down old slate mines, rides on cable cars, tree top walks and dry ski slope skiing; all in spectacular surroundings.
