About the Owner

Sian and Sally bought the cottage together in June 2010. After a luxurious refurbishment the cottage was ready for holiday rental in October 2010. Sian lives just up the road in Cerigydrudion with husband Mark in a beautiful cottage in the middle of the glorious Welsh countryside. Sally lives in historic Chester with her son Oliver. Both friends take part in triathlons and enjoy lots of outdoor activities when they can fit it all in!

Fantastic Find

  • 5 of 5

We found this delightful cottage on the Internet - and what a find! Spacious, modern, comfy, well knitted out, 2 bathrooms (essential when on holiday with teenagers!), perfect location within easy reach of beautiful walks, stunning scenery, adventure playgrounds (The Caverns are a must-do!). The welcome bottle of wine and Welsh Cakes were a lovely touch, but it was also good to find tea, coffee and milk for that much-needed cup of tea after a long drive to Betws-y-Coed.

Thank you Sally and Sian for allowing us to experience the delights of the area and your lovely property.

Bewtsy y Coed

We found the property very comfortable and very convienient to visit the places of intrest around North Wales. The only problem we had was in the very tight entrance for the car, which needed guidence each time we came to park the car.

Lovely clean cottage, comfortable and spacious. Ideal location for walking and close to the town of Betws y Coed for restaurants and pubs. Would definitely stay at this cottage again. One small criticism, a couple of comfy chairs or sofa in dining area would have been appreciated. Apart from that couldn't fault it.

Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Walk out of the door and you are moments away from several gorgeous walks along the river and up the hills. Very clean and tidy, perfect for our family of five and their dog. Cosy and warm. Thank you for the wine and welsh cakes.

Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We Arrived at this great cottage to be greeted by a complimentary Bottle of wine & some Lovely Welsh cakes which we thought was a nice touch. The cottage itself was ideal for us as we own two dogs & normally are very restricted to where we can take them, however the owners have obviously thought about this & throughout the ground floor they have laid slate tiles which are perfect for dirty paws & Muddy walking boots . The Kitchen has Everything you need , & large bath is perfect for a soak after a long walk .

Upstairs all the rooms (Large lounge,Double bedroom,Twin Bedroom & Bathroom ,are beautifully decorated & Spotlessley clean .

We will definately be going back, and to put it in a nutshell this cottage is in a fantastic central location,its beautifully clean,it has great facilities for groups of up to six people & dogs, & it is very well priced .Perfect

Excellent location and accomodation

  • 4 of 5

This was an excellent, spacious property which was very well equipped for those like us who were sellf-catering. The house was centrally located in Betws-y-Coed but actually tucked away from the main street and so much quieter than we expected it to be. The accomodation was on three levels which may not suit those who have difficulty with stairs, but we thoroughy enjoyed having the space to entertain teenagers as well as adults.

The entrance to the property is tight and requires a bit of negotiation for those with a larger car, however we would definately love to come and stay here again.

Thanks for the warm welcome (which included a bottle of wine!).

From the Owner

We had been looking in the Betws area for a few months and had actually driven past this cottage on several occasions but it had already been sold. Luckily it came back on the market so we could buy it. Bryn Awel is in a lovely location just off the main straight in Betws y Coed. Across the Pont y Pair and just down a quiet country lane, it's in a perfect location to enjoy a quiet holiday whilst still being close to the hub of Betws. The cottage is brilliantly placed for access to Snowdonia Country Park as well as the North Wales coast! It is easily accessible - just off the A5 and not too far from the A55 - yet still retains an aura of calm and tranquility.

Activity and Interests


The North Wales coast can be reached, by car, in approximately 30 minutes. Anglesey is approximately 40 minutes by car. Places of interest include Conwy Castle, Beamaris Castle and Caernarfon Castle as well as the Anglesey Aquarium, Newborough Forest and numerous beautiful sandy beaches.


Manchester and Liverpool Airport are both 90 minutes away. Car hire is recommended.


The centre of Betws-y-Coed is about 500 metres from the cottage. Llanberis (for Snowdon Mountain Railway and the famous Pete's Eats cafe!), Bala and Porthmadog (Welsh Highland Railway Steam Trains) are all no more than 40 minutes drive by car.

Further Details:

Internet is now available at Bryn Awel!!

From the Owner

Bryn Awel is convenient for visiting the whole of North Wales be it the coast or going further into the Snowdonia Country Park. The Roman town of Chester is also easily accessible using either the A5 or the A55. Close to the cottage is the Marin mountain bike trail as well as Llyn Gerionnydd for boating and even swimming for those brave enough or with wetsuits.
