About the property

Cottage in Betws Y Coed, Snowdonia, North Wales - Peaceful Location With Spectacular Views - 15 Minute Walk To The Village

Glanrhyd 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 according to the season.

The cottage garden borders the river Conwy, whilst the garden is enclosed we urge caution to families with children or a dog.

For more information please see our website.

About George Smith

Hello, my name is George.

George Smith purchased this cottage in 2005

Why George Smith chose Wales

I've been fortunate enough to own Glanrhyd Cottage for approximately eight years.

I have been visiting this area for many years and instantly fell in love with the ruin and always hoped to own it, so when the owners offered it to me I jumped at the chance.

It has been a labour of love as the cottage was a complete wreck when we purchased it with a tree growing inside, we spent two years restoring it with a lovely local traditional builder.

What makes this cottage unique

I love the solitude, views, walks and fishing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed here recently with my partner and our young daughter. The property was exactly as advertised, clean and well stock with everything you could need. A very short walk away from the centre of the village and an easy drive to all Snowdonias attractions.

Excellent service before, during and after the rental - couldn't recommend highly enough.

Further Details:

Directly in front of the cottage is a well-known pool which tends to hold sea trout and salmon (depending on time of year), occasionally it might be possible to fish but this is subject to the consent of the fishing rights holders. All fishing is subject to arrangement and a charge of twenty five pounds for the day, there is also plenty of other fishing in the area we suggest purchasing day tickets through the local angling club in Betws Y Coed and we would be pleased to offer you advice. The fishing is subject to availability and must be booked and paid for in advance. You will be required to purchase a national rod licence, visit the environment agency website for more details.
