About Glanrhyd Snowdon Cottage

Glan-y-Rhyd is a delightful traditional 200 year old single storey cottage situated in the Snowdonia National Park, North Wales, available for holiday rental. It has a spectacular location on the bank of the River Conwy, on the edge of the popular village of Betws-y-Coed, an ideal base from which to explore the many attractions and leisure activities that the Snowdonia National Park has to offer.

The 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.

Glan-y-Rhyd translates as ‘on the shore’. You will enjoy stunning views from all of the main rooms overlooking the river and beyond down the valley to the mountain Moel Siabod (2861 ft / 872m).


A delightful combination of cosy, traditional and contemporary in an idyllic setting with incredible views across the river – we will definitely return!

Mr & Mrs Armstrong, Norwich

I just wanted to get in touch and say how much we have enjoyed our weekend at Glanrhyd. It is such a beautiful cottage – you’ve done a fantastic job of renovating it – and in such beautiful countryside too.  Everything in the cottage was perfect, and we loved the ‘treats’ left for us on arrival….much appreciated!  The children enjoyed the sheep gazing in the window, and the river nearby…had a great time skimming stones.  We were delighted and didn’t want to leave….hope to come back for a full week next year.
