(Betws y Coed) - Located on the banks of the River Conwy, on the edge of the popular village of Betws-y-Coed

Glan-y-Rhyd is a delightful traditional 200 year old single storey cottage situated in the Snowdonia National Park, North Wales, available for holiday rental. It has a spectacular location on the bank of the River Conwy, on the edge of the popular village of Betws-y-Coed, an ideal base from which to explore the many attractions and leisure activities that the Snowdonia National Park has to offer.

The cottage has recently been sympathetically restored by local craftsmen employing traditional methods and environmentally friendly materials. Whilst authentic and traditional, the cottage enjoys all mod cons. The cottage is tastefully designed and ideally suited to discerning couples seeking a romantic break and solitude. However, it can comfortably accommodate up to four people in two double bedrooms at opposing ends of the property, allowing for space and privacy. We offer a reduced rate for a single couple sharing.

Glan-y-Rhyd translates as 'on the shore'. You will enjoy stunning views from all of the main rooms overlooking the river and beyond down the valley to the mountain Moel Siabod (2861 ft / 872m).

Glanrhyd cottage is located at the edge of the village of Betws-y-Coed in the Snowdonia National Park, North Wales. The cottage is secluded and access by car is gained by driving down a private gravel track. Depending on the time of year there may well be sheep or cows grazing in the surrounding fields.

Betws-y-Coed is a pretty village and popular tourist destination with many attractions. It is ideally situated off of the A55 and easy to get to by both road and train.

Being so close to Betws-y-Coed train station (15 mins by foot through delightful countryside - you might need wellies on occasion!) it is not essential to have a car. Trains run daily to nearby Llandudno Junction, however, we would encourage you to check train times before booking.

The cottage has a breathtaking location overlooking the sparkling clear water of the river Conwy in the heart of the Conwy valley. It is surrounded by mountains and forestry and opposite is the popular Betws-y-Coed golf club.
