Betws-y-Coed, Snowdonia National Park, North Wales, Wales
to our Alpine-style country home in the Snowdonia National Park, North Wales. The Country Garden House accommodates four people in comfort; it is the single storey, sunny, south wing of our home, Golygfa'r Llywelyn (The View of Llywelyn).

We are high up on the wooded hillside overlooking the village of Betws-y-Coed, with magnificent views of Snowdonia to the west. As its name suggests, the Country Garden House is located in our secluded, beautiful, rambling garden. Perfectly situated for exploring the hills and mountains of Snowdonia and the many coastal haunts of North Wales.

Snowdon, the highest mountain in England and Wales, is 20 minutes away; the historic castle and walled town of Conwy is 18 miles away and the market town of Llanrwst is a few miles up the road.

We especially hope you will enjoy r...

...who could ask for anything more! This was our second stay at Wendy and Geoffrey's lovely 'Country Garden House.' We hoped it would be just as wonderful as we remembered -- and we were not disappointed. Starting with the actual accommodation: every inch was immaculately clean; the beds are comfortable and the towels and linens plentiful and fresh; the kitchen...

We have just come back from a fabulous four day anniversary break in North Wales with friends. We stayed in the country garden house amply provided by hosts Geoffrey and Wendy and not forgetting Puss the cat. Your home is warm, very clean and greatly set out for a family of four or couples. We were never cold and the...

Together with my wife and a couple of Friends we came here for just a few nights. First impression was very positive - nice approach. Farther was only better and better. The property, surrounded by alpine gardens, just 'sunk' in flowers. Situated on the hill with a stunning view from windows and terrace. We've got there everything we needed. Add...
