holiday cottage front door

The cottage is a tastefully converted stone barn with a Welsh slate roof which offers comfortable self catering accommodation for two. The cowshed, which is now the living room and kitchen/dining area dates back to the early 17th century. A roof truss from this period is still in place and miraculously has some bark on it. The cart-shed and hay barn were added on around the 1880’s.

All the rooms have high beamed ceilings so as to retain the character and feel of the original barn. we used as much reclaimed material as we could to keep the feeling of period living. The cottage has full under floor central heating, double glazing and is insulated for 21st century comfort.


There is parking next to the front door. In front of the cottage there is a picnic table, garden chairs, a garden bench and barbeque, as well as a private riverside garden.

The cottage is in a very peaceful, quiet, rural location and perfect for getting away from it all. We are less than 15 minutes drive from the attractive town of Betws-y-Coed which has a range of shops, friendly pubs and restaurants.
