Our family holiday was a mix of all ages, abilities and interests and this beautiful property was absolutely ideal. Extremely well-equipped with everything you could need. For our trip, we wanted to be close to lots of local activities and were only 15 minutes from Go Below; 30 minutes from Fforest Coaster; 35 minutes from Bounce Below; 50 minutes from Caernarfon and also Rib Ride. The older kids had an amazing time on their 5-hour underground adventure at Go Below and the younger children absolutely loved their "Fairy Day". The Farmhouse is based in Pentrefoelas which is famous for its fairies!! Us "oldies" took the little ones into Betws-y-Coed for lunch on the old train and a ride on the Miniature Railway while the adrenalin junkies explored underground caves/zip line/ repelling etc Besides having a great location, we appreciated the fact that it was extremely well-equipped with everything we could possibly need. Having two sitting rooms was a real bonus as it meant that the kids could escape to the "Games Room". The kitchen was so well-equipped that we were all amazed at the range of equipment provided. The best praise I can give this beautiful, comfortable, warm and inviting property would be that, if it were mine, this is how I would do it!!
Eleven of us celebrated by husbands 60 th birthday with family and our 2 pugs. The cottage was ideal for us, a big table for all of us to get round for meals, games and books galore for rainy days. Fortunately we had dry weather and bright blue skies all w/e so we're out everyday. The view from the garden is amazing across open countryside and seeing the stars from the velux window in the bedroom as you nodded off to sleep was lovely. A 20 mins ride to Betws-y - Coed for lovely cafés, shops and meals and the same to zip world where we all enjoyed the tree safari zip wire experience. Shame we couldn't have stayed longer ! Lovely owners, very helpful. The wi-fi didn't work well but probably just as well to get away from distractions ! Well recommended.
My husband’s family got together for a week- we had a relaxing time. The WiFi was intermittent but actually that was probably a good thing to get away from it all. Plenty of games to chose from. There is Wii but limited games so if you have a favourite take it with you. The ladle to serve the meals was a bit flimsy. All-in-all an enjoyable stay was had by everyone.
I stayed at the farmhouse with my family to celebrate my dads 70th birthday. There was 11 of us in total with 5 children ranging in age from 9 to 17. The house was fantastically well equipped, including TVs, Wi-fi, dishwasher and a great games room which the children loved. Everything was clean and tidy, comfortable beds with good linen and towels. Loved the old school record player and collection of LPs - had a great party night singing and dancing. The owner was attentive- texting GPS coordinates, making sure everything was ok when we got there and then letting us know there was no hurry on our last day if we wanted to leave later. My niece left her make up bag and it was posted back to us the following day. Would highly recommend and if we are back that way again wouldn’t hesitate in staying again. Many thanks for a fab time
10 of us stayed at the farmhouse over bonfire weekend, 6 adults and 4 children (2 being teenagers) we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and had plenty of space to spread out. Facilities were fab and we had everything we needed. The farmhouse was cosy and we all enjoyed relaxing in front of the log fires and had great fun with all the games - enjoyed by kids and adults. The kitchen was great to sit around and chat in. Would recommend the forest toboggans at the zip wire at Betws-y-Coed we all enjoyed them (from age 10-75!). We would definately book the farmhouse again - perfect for family or friends gatherings. Thank you Ian.
We stayed at this cottage for a week as a group of 12, with the ages ranging from 22 months to 64 years, and all had a wonderful time, the children enjoyed the games room which had plenty for all! The cottage was very well equipped and in a lovely location with beautiful views. We would definitely return in the future.

We recently spent a family holiday at the farmhouse Betws-y-coed for October half term. Eight adults, four children and two dogs. Our visit coincided with storm Brian which seemed to persist for most of the week, and made us very grateful that we were staying at the farmhouse.
The games room entertainment of pool, table football, table tennis, darts & chess kept everyone entertained and evenings in the lounge area doing quizzes and playing board games around the log burner were very cosy.
The accommodation was very spacious with ample room for a party of our size.
There is a lovely view of the surrounding country side from the rear of the cottage.
The cottage is well equipped, the owner is very helpful and is only a phone call away if needed.
A very good holiday.
