I stayed for 3 nights in late July 2013 on my way fro London to Manchester via Mid and north Wales. Tir y Coed is located in a valley off a B road on the edge of Snowdonia National Park just a few miles from Conwy and is approached along a very narrow windy road with high hedges on each side, some people more familiar with the road zip along quite quickly which can be a bit disconcerting, as there is very little room for two cars to pass in most parts.
I stayed in the Rowen Suite, which is very spacious and the two large windows overlook the garden of the hotel.When I arrived Ian checked me in and helped me upstairs with my (very heavy) suitcase.There was adequate storage; a wardrobe and a large chest of drawers so I was able to unpack what I thought I would need whilst I was there.I was tired after my journey so I decided to eat in the hotel, they offer a three course fixed price menu at 37 pounds, drinks extra, which offers substantial choices.
I had a pre dinner drink from the bar and then made my choices, It was as good a meal as I have had in a long time, accompanied by a very nice bottle of red wine from Western Australia recommended by Alan and which by hotel standards was reasonably priced at 36.95 pounds. Breakfast was equally good with juices, cereals, yoghurts and a menu choice of cooked breakfasts and toast made to order, the buttermilk pancakes are superb.
Rowen is about a 30 to 35 minute drive to Llanberis for the train ride up Mt Snowdon with Caernarfon and its castle another 15 to 20 minutes away.
I really enjoyed my stay at Tir y Coed and would recommend a stay there to anyone likely to be in the area.
My thanks to Alan and Ian for their hospitality, and I hope to see you again one day.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tir y Coed is a boutique B&B and the house is a haven of peace and tranquility, ideal for a romantic break or a family get-together. Surrounded by an acre of mature landscaped gardens on the edge of Rowen, one of the Conwy valley's most delightful villages and just within the boundary of the Snowdonia National Park. Most bedrooms have views over the gardens and vary in size and style as would be expected in a period house. Each room has either an en suite bath or shower room a T.V. super-fast broadband (but no mobile signal, as we have mountains everywhere) as well as all the other stuff you'd expect to enable you to make yourself at home. Think fluffy white towels, feather and down duvets, proper coffee and big comfy beds. It is possible to dine in the evening by prior arrangement and we will be happy to discuss food options and preferences with you. ... more less
