Royal Oak Farm Cottage description

Holiday home
Situated just a five minute walk from the centre of Betws-Y-Coed, this property offers an idyllic haven for a couple looking to spend some quality time together. All the accommodation is laid out over one level, comprising a beamed sitting room, an en-suite double bedroom, a well-facilitated kitchen and a dining area. A slated patio offers ample opportunity for outdoor dining in the summer evenings.

Betws-Y-Coed is known as the ‘Gateway to Snowdonia'. Situated in a tranquil and picturesque valley in the Snowdonia National Park, Betws-Y-Coed has served as inspiration for artists since Victorian times, when much of the village was built. However, there is evidence of early Neolithic settlements and it is possible to explore the Neolithic Burial Chamber at Capel Garmon. In fact, the immediate vicinity has been home to the Romans, Anglo-Saxons and Celts and evidence of their tribes, villages and fortresses are to be found throughout the region. The village itself is well served by outdoor activity shops and you can sample traditional Welsh fare such as Welsh rarebit, Glamorgan sausages and bara brith in the inns and pubs that feed walkers and visitors throughout the calendar.

Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.

Electric radiators and electric fire in sitting room. Electric cooker, microwave, fridge, washer/dryer, TV, DVD, WiFi. All fuel and power inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Ample off road parking. Slate patio/sitting area with garden furniture. Sorry, no pets and no smoking. Shops and pubs 5 mins.

In a perfect location, tucked away yet just minutes walk from the centre of Betws-y-Coed. Loved the privacy and ambiance of the property and the accessibility to Snowdonia was so easy.
Mr Plant

Excellent and in a quiet location. It had first class decoration and great hosts. There was fantastic wild life, it was great for country walks and had easy, private parking. All shops, railway, public transport, restaurants, bars and shops were 3 minutes walk away.

The cottage was very good value, and was perfectly adequate for 2. It had everything that was needed and the bed was comfy and the water hot. The kitchen was well equipped and everything worked well. The cottage was very central and convenient for everywhere.
Mr Bayliss
April 2015
The cottage was a real little gem. Such a peaceful setting, and yet within a few minutes walk from the centre of Betws-y-Coed. A perfect spot for a relaxing break, and because of the location, equally suitable for those wanting a more strenuous holiday.

We will certainly be passing the word around about this one!

This is a delightful little cottage, when there you could be in the middle of nowhere, with only the sounds of the river going by, but in fact it is only a very short walk to the very interesting town of Betws-y-Coed and all its facilities.

a lovely cottage in a tranquil location near to a river clean and spotless well equipped and cosy, near to shops and railway station, would recomend this cottage to people thinking of going to Wales
April 2013
Delightful cottage, well equipped. The owners were available to give advice on where to go when needed. Location in Betwsy is perfect as you feel tucked away next to the river and down a private road but is a minutes walk to shops restuarants etc. Some delightful low level walks you can do from the cottage include the miners bridge, and fairy glen. Easy access to Snowdon for the more venturesome. Cant wait to go back.
June 2013
Our cottage had everything you could possibly want. It was well stocked and welcoming with a fantastic cream tea as we walked in the door. It was private and secure with excellent parking.

Mr Jones
June 2005
The location of the cottage was perfect, central but peaceful. The courtyard was a peaceful haven, for both the wildlife that abounds and for ourselves. The welcome cream tea was most thoughtful and the literature provided about the area was most useful. Sky television was an unexpected added extra - as was the wagtails nest just outside the door!
Mr Irwin
December 2004
Well equipped. Quiet and private despite the close proximity of the owners house.
December 2015
This small cottage is delightful. Excellently equipped. Well maintained. 3 minutes walk from all shops, bars, amenities, including public transport. The owners are most welcoming and efficient, nothing being too much trouble. An added bonus is private, secluded parking in a busy village. Easy connectable wi-fi. We cannot recommend this charming cottage highly enough.
July 2014
Royal Oak Farm Cottage is all anyone could want in a vacation rental---clean, well furnished and maintained, convenient location. Wife & I stayed for two weeks and loved every minute. One of the walks leading to local scenic vistas ran past the front gate, others started only yards away. Restaurants and shops were within five minutes walk. Hosts were friendly but not at all intrusive. The train station is within 100 yards and the bus stop is adjacent to the train station. Village is busy during the day but very quiet at night so no problems with noise. We have rented vacation property from Hawaii to Europe and Royal Oak Farm Cottage is among the top five percent in quality and value.

A sweet little cottage, perfect for just the two of us. We visit Betws y coed every year and have stayed in six different cottages with friend or family and this was in the best location yet.(and so private) It was clean,warm,cozy and had everything we needed. What more could you ask for! Oh, and cream tea on arrival was the iceing on the cake. Would highly recomend Royal Oak Farm Cottage.
November 2010
a lovely cottage in a beautiful spot. just minutes from the bustle of the shops etc. but very peaceful.
October 2011
Lovely cottage in the centre of betwys Y Coed but in a courtyard down a private road. Owners friendly and accomodation simple but very well presented. we will be using this cottage again
March 2012
This little cottage for 2 was perfect for our Xmas week of walking the hills and exploring the coast. It was very cosy, well heated, well appointed and quiet, yet located in the very middle of Betws y Coed. The hosts were exceptionally friendly and the welcoming 'pack' of wine and cake was delightful. Good parking, access to shops, restaurants etc made it a superb location. We actually ate in every night and found in the kitchen area everything we needed for cooking a Xmas meal! All in all, we could not fault it - and it was even very good value!
Mr Mullen
January 2016
Great cottage in an excellent location. The owner was very welcoming and extremely helpful during a medical emergency. The cottage is central to everything but still in a beautiful secluded spot.
September 2010
Clean and comfortable accommodation in a convenient location. Nice river walk beside the property.
April 2010
This idyllic property is nestled just off the main road of Betws y Coed. It is ideally located for local amenities of the picturesque town. More importantly for us though was the access to the Snowdonia National Park. The cottage is a clean and well equipped hideaway that is tastefully furnished in the style of the picturesque courtyard property it stands in. The service we received from the owners was helpful and friendly. We would thoroughly recommend a getaway to this property at any time of the year!
