Betws-y-Coed village is the gateway to Snowdonia and lies within The Snowdonia National Park. Its beautiful location in Snowdonia Forest Park makes it ideal for exploring and activity holidays.
The village has plenty of craft and activity shops and is surrounded by beautiful mountain and woodland scenery that has attracted artists since Victorian times; for those seeking a rural cottage break in this stunning part of Wales it should be no surprise to find out that there are some wonderful natural attractions on the doorstep, including sign-posted walks, cascading waterfalls and historic landmarks.
Swallow Falls is one of the region's most popular destinations, offering a lovely walk and views of the majestic cascading waters. If you fancy a little tranquillity then a walk in Gwydir Forest comes highly recommended and if you visit in the early morning there are few experiences as magical. For a high altitude view and some high-octane thrills, try The Treetop Adventure for a variety of fun activities for explorers of all ages.
The region also offers some fantastic man-made heritage; of particular interest are St Mary's church in the centre of the village and the restored St Michael's church.
