Arfron Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Originally used in the 1700s as a barn, this property has been sympathetically restored to offer accommodation for groups of up to four people. Original features such as pine panelling and exposed beams make this cottage a comfortable and stylish haven for those looking to get away from it all. This property forms part of a terrace of cottages converted from one barn. Set in the grounds of a working livestock farm, its enviable position offers spectacular views of the Snowdonia mountain range. Pine panelling, exposed beams and original stonework combine to create a classic cottage feel; a perfect and peaceful base from which to explore the region.

Hailed as the Gateway to Snowdonia, Betws-Y-Coed is now the principal village of the Snowdonia National Park. Much of Betws-Y-Coed was built in Victorian times on the site where the River Conwy joins its three tributaries. Its natural beauty has inspired artists since those times and many continue to visit to try and capture something of the stunning scenery. Thick woodlands and imposing mountains dominate the skyline, offering an unspoilt habitat to a variety of animals, birds and some rare species of plants. With Mount Snowdon looming as a backdrop, Betws-Y-Coed attracts walkers, climbers and mountain-bikers throughout the year. As a result, the town is well served by inns and pups where you can sample local delights such as traditional Welsh rarebit and Glamorgan sausages. Also of interest are the many bridges in the area. Pont-y-Pair, built in 1468, is buffeted by foaming water after heavy rain, hence the meaning of its name: the Bridge of the Cauldron. A number of sign-posted walks in the surrounding countryside start near this bridge. A mile or so away is the Miner's Bridge, on the road to Capel Curig, where early miners crossed the river on a steep ladder to get to work.

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.

A truly lovely cottage. Wonderful area. The cottage itself was wonderfully equipped, very warm and cosy with a lovely welcome from the owners who were very friendly and approachable. We are definitely planning on returning one day.
Mrs Payne

This is a well appointed, very cosy cottage that was more spacious than the photos suggest. The owners are fantastic hosts and very welcoming. We will definitely return to explore more of Snowdonia.

The location was ideal for us - quiet and secluded with stunning scenery. The owners were very friendly and welcoming and appeared to have thought of everything, particularly for visitors with a dog.
Mr Moore
June 2015
The cottage was in a peaceful location; not too far away from the nearest town, and very close to some very nice walks, which we enjoyed. It was very relaxing and had nice owners, they made you feel very welcome.
Mrs Duggan

The cottage was perfect; warm, cosy and really well equipped. We had a fantastic weekend despite the wet weather and would definitely recommend it and hope to stay again.

The view from Arfron, Penrhyddion Pella was amazing .The owner was very welcoming and whilst we didn't need any assistance I did feel that we could have asked and help would have been given. Whilst it is 3 properties made from one barn I felt it was surprisingly private. I cooked in the cottage each night and each utensil/item I needed was there. The owner had really thought about what was in the cupboards.

The owners were lovely and so helpful, can't fault them or the property. They had thought of everything you could possibly ever need. The property is just lovely too, very quaint.
Mr Proctor

We were made very welcome and everything that we could want was provided. The owners were kind and attentive. The setting of the cottage was beautiful and well situated for exploring the surrounding area. We would highly recommend that if you are visiting North Wales you should try and stay at Arfron cottage!
Mr Burley

This cottage is one of the best we stayed in, we can't find a fault with the cottage. The owners were very friendly on arrival and came and said goodbye on departure, will be going back.

Very nice cottage, and owners, based in a beautiful and peaceful place.
Mr Beacom
May 2014
The situation of the property was excellent, over looking the valleys and mountains, so peaceful and beautiful, if you want a quiet holiday away from it all, this is the place to come to. Our hosts very kindly left us some home made Welsh cakes and fresh milk for a welcome cup of tea. It was very much appreciated.
Mrs Chapman
August 2013
It was one of the nicest cottages that I have stayed in for a holiday. You were made to feel very welcome and it felt like home from home. It was ideal as it was away from everything and very isolated. If we go back to that area for another break I would definitely consider using the same cottage again.
Mrs Flatt

Everything is Perfect.
Mrs Gilbert
July 2013
This accommodation was very well equipped with a lot of extras provided as well as home made welsh cakes on our arrival. The owners were extremely helpful and were on call for any problems. The holiday let is in a lovely position up in the peaceful hills with a view of Snowdon, but near enough to local towns for shopping.
Mr Blackmore
August 2011
The owners made us feel so welcome and nothing was too much for them. They even welcomed us when we arrived. This was the first time for me at this cottage and it won't be the last for sure. Also, this was an ideal location in the Snowdon range for all the beautiful walks we did.
Mrs Wilkinson
June 2010
Wonderful location. Compact but clean and well equipped.
Mrs Lossin
July 2010
The warm welcome we received was really lovely and made us feel very much at home. I have stayed in many self catering cottages in the past but I have never experienced a welcome quite like it. The cottage was lovely, beautifully clean and well presented in an idyllic setting.
Mr Woodbridge
September 2010
The location was excellent with views over the mountains, in a secluded location yet only a few miles from main routes. It was a very nice cottage, formed from a barn conversion with plenty of character and original stone work. The owners were friendly but situated remote enough not to feel you were invading their space. Overall a lovely holiday even with it raining for a couple of days!
Mrs Woodward
August 2011
The hosts were lovely people!
May 2011

September 2011
We were made most welcome and helped when we needed it.The surrounding area had plenty of places to explore or peaceful enough just to chill out.Lots of walks close by and central enough for beaches, rail trips and Snowdonia.We had a great holiday up in the mountains.
September 2013
Stayed at The Arfron from 31st Aug-6th Sept, all previous reviews are true, this is a wonderful place to stay. Kathy & John are fantastic hosts welcoming on the Saturday & saying goodbye on the Thursday evening.We had the best weather you could expect for September,sunny & warm most days. The cottage is spacious for 2, might be a little cramped for 4 adults, 1 bedroom as bunk beds. There is plenty of storage space though & the kitchen is the best equipped we have stayed in. The lane leading to the cottage can be a bit daunting to some but its less than 1/2 mile long, the bonus being not much traffic takes this road so walking the dog is a treat, the views from the lanes are a treat. Excellent base for touring Snowdonia, most places can be reached within the hour, Betws-y-Coed, Capel Curig,Llangollen,Llandudno & many others. The Ponty Pair hotel in Betws-y-Coed does good beer & pub grub as does the Swallow Falls hotel. Will definitely be returning soon.
Mr Pearham

Mrs Stevenson
August 2006
The setting was FANTASTIC, close enough to travel to seaside or mountains - the scenery was BREATHTAKING - the owners EXTREMELY WELCOMING AND FRIENDLY. A real home from home.
Mr Morris
August 2006
If the cottage wasn't breathtaking enough, just to turn around and see the panoramic views of the Snowdonia National Park was the icing on the cake. The owners provided such nice little touches on arrival. Although they were on hand to help if required they weren't on the doorstep at every turn. A highly recommended property!!!!
Mr Saunders
March 2006
We received a personal welcome from the owners, who were extremely helpful, knowledgeable about the area and lent us books on local walks and attractions. The cottage was excellent - exactly what we wanted - very clean, well kept, and everything was provided that we needed for our long weekend. Also the scenery was spectacular, amazing views of Snowdon and surrounding countryside. Will definitely come back for our next trip to North Wales!
April 2010
What a lovely cottage in a great location, definately recommend a visit and thanks to Mr & Mrs Bradley, by the way your welsh cakes were delicious.
December 2009
A wonderfully relaxing week spent in a beautiful part of the world. Cottage was perfect, spotlessly clean with everything we needed, situated in a lovely location with beautiful views. Secluded, but still handy for the local village pub and Betws Y Coed with it's amenities and well marked walks etc. Owners very friendly and the Welsh cakes provided were the best I've tasted. Will definitely return.
December 2009

December 2009
Lovely location in wonderful countryside, with beautiful views. Very comfortable cottage, well located for exploring. Owners helpful - made sure all was OK but not intrusive. Good walks from the door.
