Welsh Country Cottages

From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


Bright, airy former vicarage, with open fire and wood burning stove, ideal for walkers with Snowdon paths from the door.

Dating back to the Victorian era and a former vicarage, this large detached property is located slightly off the A5 historical route between Betws-y-Coed and Capel Curig. The property is an excellent location for visitors wanting the walks of Snowdon on the doorstep, including Llanberis Path, the easiest and longest route, The Miners’ Track, Snowdon Ranger Path and the Watkin Path. The holiday property has been carefully restored retaining many original features, boasting a cosy and atmospheric wood-burning stove, whilst a medieval highgate bed captures the Victorian period. The elevated gardens to the rear (steps may be slippery when wet) overlooks the mountains and local countryside.
Capel Curig nestles in the foothills of Moel Siabod, Y Glyderau and Y Carneddau, endorsing the majestic view of the Snowdon horseshoe. Afon Llygwy flows through the village, making its way down to Betws-y-Coed, a nearby village where forests, lakes and mountains combine to produce a stunning landscape. Coffee shops, craft houses, a miniature steam railway and a number of good eating houses are located in the centre of Betws-y-Coed village.
Day trips to consider would be Bodnant Gardens, set in one of North Wales’ most famous estates, or Conway, with its castle walls, marina, selection of shops and delicatessens, not forgetting the smallest house in the UK according to the Guinness Book of Records. Llangollen in the opposite direction is a pleasant Welsh town with its horse-drawn canal boats, light railway, Dr Who experience, and world famous festivals such as the annual Eisteddfod. Beddgelert is a short drive and is good for walkers or children wishing to visit Gelert’s Grave. Most areas of the Lleyn Peninsula are within an hour’s drive, where good beaches and watersports can be found. Portmeirion village is also great for a day trip with its exotic plants and Italianate buildings. Fishing and golf are available within 5 miles. Shop 1 mile, pub ¼ mile.

Narrow steep stairs to first floor: Three double bedrooms, two with en-suite shower room and toilet. Twin bedroom. Bathroom with roll-top bath, shower cubicle and toilet.

    An all too brief stay. Although located on the main A5, it was remarkably quiet. The location was perfect for access to the Marin Trail for the mountain bikers and for Moel Siabod for the walkers. We appreciated the two lounges, the comfortable bedrooms, and the wi-fi.

    We were already aware of the location of Cartref, which was perfect for our needs being central for Betws-y-Coed, Conwy and Snowden; Snowdonia is simply breathtaking ! Being able to step out of the front door to go for a walk along the river was great. Three adults were holidaying for the whole week with a couple of other family members coming for a few days each. We were delighted with the comfort and roominess of Cartref. Having two living rooms was a bonus too. The kitchen was very well equipped for a large family; plenty of cupboard space too. We will be back !!

    The best equipped house we have stayed in for 4 adults & 3 kids (aged 9,6 & 22months)!! would have scored 10 but not noted in the description that there is a car park in front of the property and also a few things need a bit of tlc in the house. But overall great place, great location for access to Bets & Snowdon and stone baked pizzas sold next door were fab & weather so good ate al fresco !!! When we can we'll be back !!

    Cottage was a bit cold when we arrived and was difficult to get it warm enough (log burner was broken, owner told me that part was due next week).
