The cottages near Betws-y-Coed are on a working farm, where a pet donkey always offers a friendly welcome and visitors are free to wander the delightful farm trail. Guests in these cottages enjoy free use of a nearby hotel leisure centre (3 miles) with pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and multi-gym (not included in stays at Tan y Bryn Cottage which is on the North Wales coast away from the other cottages).

There is excellent walking in the area with many river and forest walks around Betws-y-Coed, and the famous Swallow Falls near by. For those seeking more challenging walking the high peaks of the mountains of Snowdonia are close by including Snowdon.

Other activities available locally include climbing, canoeing and mountain biking. Mountain bikers will find the Marin Trail and Penmachno Trails within cycling distance of the Betws-y-Coed cottages. There are golf courses at Betws-y-Coed, Conwy, Llandudno, Betws-yn-Rhos and Abergele, and a dry ski slope at Llandudno on the Great Orme.

The famous Bodnant Garden is one of many National Trust properties in North Wales, and is well worth visiting at any time of year. A new winter garden opened at Bodnant in 2013. Wales is well known for its castles and Conwy Castle, Caernarfon Castle and Dolwyddelan Castle are the closest of many you can explore.

Steam railway enthusiasts are well catered for with the Ffestiniog Railway, Welsh Highland Railway, and Snowdon Mountain Railway and others in the area.

The victorian resort of Llandudno is worth a visit with its wide promenade, cable car & tramway to the top of the Great Orme, and plenty of shops for those wanting a little retail therapy.

Betws-y-Coed is a charming victorian mountain resort at the meeting point of the Conwy and Llugwy rivers and has a large selection of outdoor activity shops and a good choice of places to eat out. The village has many waterfalls around it including the famous Swallow Falls.
