A very cosy cottage in a quiet riverside location, yet only a short stroll to all the pubs, restaurants, shops and attractions in Betws-y-Coed. Comfortably furnished with reclining sofas in the living room and decorated with lots of homely finishing touches. We loved the large live-in kitchen diner on the lower ground floor. The pretty cottage garden extends to a snug private patio area right by the river which is ideal for watching wildlife or reading a book. Further away, Portmeirion, Snowdon, Electric Mountain and the Welsh Highland Railway are all within driving distance and highly recommended too. We've returned home feeling very refreshed.
We have just returned from a wonderful one week holiday in this charming cottage.
Although Betws-y-Coed can get busy at the weekends this cottage is in a very peaceful location but within easy walking distance of the many excellent restaurants.
The cottage is furnished in a traditional style and is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The owners are very helpful and gave us good local info on some very good local walks and on where to eat. They were also quick to respond when we had a problem with the hot water supply and it was sorted out in a matter of a couple of hours.
The cottage is situated right by the river and there is a wonderful patio with table and chairs to relax and watch the birdlife on the river.
Would recommend this property to anyone who wants a high quality self-catering holiday in beautiful surroundings. The kitchen is excellent but, as there are so many good eateries within walking distance, we ate out every night !!
The house and garden are very well kept. The location is ideal for exploring the National Park, coast and castles.The village has all the amenities including restaurants and outdoor shops.
Most impressive english garden type backyard right on fast flowing stream, with its own resident heron <smile>. The owners were delightful and helpful to a fault. The neighbors on one side were the sheep living in a field <smile>. The short stroll into town was comfortable, scenic and out of any tourist trails. Betws-y-coed is a jumping off point for all sorts of Snowdonia / Gwynedd excursions. Glan Dulyn really was a retreat which allowed for as many different day hikes as you could want for, quiet and serene yet only a short walk into the town and its shops, restaurants and railway station. Make sure to visit the most scenic teahouse in Wales, just up the road in Llanwurst, and its sister - the Ugly Teahouse not far away either. It was great to dine out, or shop the local farmer's offerings and cook a relaxed meal, or come in after a day of hiking to snooze with comforters on the comfy sofas. If you had time only for one stay in Wales, this should be the place.
We booked last minute to extend our stay in Wales. Frances the owner was so helpful and accommodating. The place is a perfect country cottage and the river runs by at the back of the garden which is very picturesque. Bonus that there's space for 2 cars to park too. The cottage is located centrally in Betws-y-Coed yet secluded and peaceful. Recommend to try the 3 course menu in the restaurant and the Royal Oak Hotel and the Pont-y-prith pub for both food or drinks - all walking distance.
Excellent had a fab holiday. Brilliant location. Very helpfully owners. Facilities were as described. Would recommend.
Fantastic location. Extremely well equipped, and clean. Lovely gesture, leaving us a welcome pack. Way more consideration put into this than we have ever come across. Hope it continues to be available, as we will certainty return if it is available.
