Hoseasons Cottages

Relax and unwind in a Hoseasons cottage. Wherever you choose to stay our aim is to ensure you have a wonderful holiday experience every step of the way.


Just 5 miles from Betws-y-Coed and within the Snowdonia National Park, this cosy retreat offers easy access to stunning scenery and beaches.

Situated at the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, this cosy retreat has a warming wood burner in the living room to relax in front of with a glass of wine, and a lovely light sun lounge, which is a favourite place for guests to read and simply chill. This beamed cottage has all you need for a comfortable and relaxing break, not least the enclosed south facing garden for summer barbecues. The friendly village of Dolwyddelan has a pub, hotel, local village shop, an historic 14th century church and even a 13th century castle, which was the birthplace of Prince Llywelyn – all within walking distance, and you can also pull on your walking boots and explore the peaceful hidden valley of Cwm Penamnen following the waymarked trails. If you want to leave the car at home, why not hop on the train and take a scenic journey on the Conwy Valley line to Llandudno from the local station? Five miles away, Blaenau Ffestiniog is now a thrill seekers delight attracting visitors from all over the world with the amazing Zip World Titan, the world’s largest zip wire zone where you can soar over an old slate quarry, and Bounce Below, where you can bounce on trampoline nets deep in an underground slate cavern. If you’re after something a bit more relaxing, then take a steam train trip on the Ffestiniog Railway on the spectacular journey from Blaenau Ffestiniog down to the coast at Porthmadog (they’ll even serve refreshments at your seat!). The pretty village of Betws-y-Coed, 5 miles, is also well worth a visit, with its individual shops, leafy forest walks, and the amazing Fforest Coaster at Zip World Fforest! You may even catch a local Welsh male voice choir performing in St Mary’s Church on Sunday evenings during the summer months.

    Although in a lovely rural spot it was very difficult to access up or down a steep road, which was treacherous in the snow. The parking spot was very tight amongst the rocks too. the cottage was down 15 steps or so, which made carrying bags in difficult also in the snow.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are sorry our guests found it difficult to access the cottage - it is possible to avoid the steep access, although it is not usually difficult to negotiate. Parking is available on the corner at the end of the road for those who find the space tight (although several guests has recorded that they found it easy, even for late cars). We are glad they enjoyed to location, and hope that overall the snow enhanced the visit - we don’t get it very often!

    This is a very cosy homey place to stay. the location is great with access to most attractions and activities. Nearby Spar corner shop. the property is clean and very thoughtfully equipped with almost everything one needs for a hideaway holiday from music CDs to plenty of games... there is even a new pack of toothbrushes in case you forgot to pack yours. The only two things to be aware of which are not clear from the description are; 1) access to the property is via very narrow lane climbing up hill and the parking space outside the property is good for a Mini or a Smart. If you happen to be driving a big pickup truck like myself or a somewhat wide vehicle, be prepared to show off your diving skills or rub the vehicle in Vaseline because it's really narrow. There is also a quite sharp sharp bend so if your vehicle is long, don't think about it. in all cases you need to pray no other cars are coming in the opposite direction because there is literally no passing point along that lane without trespassing. 2) the access to the cottage itself is via steps leading down. they are not exactly steep but these are smooth slate or similar and we found it very VERY slippery specially in icy conditions. So for elderly, reduced mobility etc. bear this in mind. Apart from that, it's a really nice place and we'd probably go back again.

    Ideal base to enjoy all that North Wales has to offer. The cottage was comfortable and the owners helpful. My husband and I enjoyed our stay. The garden is small but secure, which was good for Merlin our dog. Good dog walks from the door.

    A lovely little house and a perfect base for walks. In easy reach of Betwys-Y-Coed, Llandudno and Llanberis. Well equipped kitchen and fantastic collection of travel guides and tourist information for the area.

    We had lovely time, the cottage was perfect, the only negative was all though the weather was beautiful, we were unable to sit in the garden, after being out for the day, because it was so over grown, which meant we had to sit inside,
