After trolling the Internet for a place to stay in Betws-y-Coed, I found this BnB on the commerce website of Betws-y-Coed. What a fantastic find! It was easy to make reservations on-line and the hosts contacted us quickly. They don't accept credit cards, but it was nice to know that there are still people out there that their word is their bond and that they trust your word as bond also. I arranged for two out of their three rooms.
We arrived as agreed and found the place easily. The two rooms were bright and clean, both came with en-suite bathrooms and the hosts were so friendly and hospitable. The BnB is outside of town which actually worked out very well as it took us out of the noise and traffic of the village. There is a wonderful footpath and suspension bridge to take you into town where we found a nice pub called Y Stables for an evening meal.
After a solid night's sleep, Sue, the host, made a wonderful English breakfast for us consisting of cereals, yogurts, juice, scrambled eggs, gammon, mushroom, tomatoes, toasts, coffee, tea....there was so much and so yummy!
If we are ever in this area again, we will stay at this place again. I recommend it highly!

Maes y Fedwen is a unique split level house which was built in 1973 from plans drawn by Clough Williams Ellis, the architect who was responsible for the design and building of Portmeirion.

Large picture windows offer panoramic views across the village of Betws y Coed and westward towards the Carneddau mountains. Terraced gardens surround the house and a lower garden has a small orchard and is home for the bee hives which provide honey for breakfast. Although only 5-10 minutes walk away from the centre of Betws y Coed, Maes y Fedwen offers its guests a quiet haven in a friendly and homey environment. ... more less
