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 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).
