North Wales contains some of the most beautiful natural landscapes in Britain, ranging from the mountains, forests, lakes and streams of Snowdonia to cliffs and sandy beaches on the coast.

Glan-y-Rhyd cottage is also a great base for a fishing or golf holiday.


We are delighted to offer cottage guests the opportunity to fish approximately 1.5 miles of exclusive fishing on the river Conwy adjacent to the cottage. There are a few pools and glides close to the cottage which tend to hold salmon & sea trout in certain conditions as well as some decent wild brown trout.

All fishing is strictly subject to prior arrangement and charges & conditions apply.  We can also arrange a guide and instruction if required. There is also plenty of other fishing in the area for all abilities and we suggest purchasing day tickets through the local angling club in Betws Y Coed . Please use our contact page to enquire about the excellent fishing on offer and we would be pleased to advise you.


Literally a stones throw away on the opposite bank of the river is the Betws-y-Coed golf club. This is a popular challenging nine-hole course in a delightful setting open to members and non-members see

Zipworld Fforest & Velocity

Zipworld Fforest is on our doorstep, where you can enjoy a journey through canopy of the trees, or take the Coaster, an exhilarating traditional toboggan run through the forest. Velocity is the fastest zip line in the world and the longest in Europe (not for the faint hearted), and there are many other things to do there.


Surf Snowdonia

The wave garden is an artificial wave lagoon perfect for learning to surf.

Snowdonia National Park

Glan-y-Rhyd cottage is in the heart of the Snowdonia National park and only a short drive from the pretty bays and sandy beaches on the island of Anglesey and the Lleyn Penninsula. It is an ideal base for walking as well as a wide range of other outdoor activities. Many attractive walks actually start from the village and there are numerous valley and forest walks in the area with marked paths.
