“Lovely property, superb location, ideal for families”
Reviewed 26 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I booked this property at short notice for a five day break for my wife and I and two teenage boys. Betwys y Coed is a great village to base yourself in for a holiday. It has plenty of eating locations and is at the hub of many routes.
The property is large, comfortable and cozy. Well equipped and homely. Good instructions from the owner and a nice courtesy call on our first evening to check all was ok.
Our boys loved the place with the only complaint from them being being that the wi-fi was a bit weak in the furthest bedroom from the router and affected whatever it is they do on their smartphones!
During our week we did the longest zip wire in Europe over a nearby quarry, white water rafting, quad biking, walked down Snowdon and Segways.
We will definitely consider staying here again. There is nothing quite like looking out over the hills from the lounge area with the morning coffee or the evening glass of something stronger.
Well recommended

A really lovely property with everything you need for a great family holiday. Its location is ideal, only a couple of minutes walk to the village centre.We would highly recommend a stay here for a large family and look forward to going back.

“2nd Ladies Walking/Birthday Weekend - It must be good for us to return!”
Reviewed 22 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

This is our second stay at Mair y Coed (translates as Mary of the Woods). The property is a beautiful and characterful former Chapel/Church which has been converted to luxurious holdiay accommodation.
This year 10 of us shared the four upstairs bedrooms. We were all very comfortable. There is a 5th downstairs bedroom which we used last year, but is very small and basic. This was made clear to me by the owner before we booked, but we needed the accommodation for our large group. The group was smaller this year so everyone was happy!
The house is lovely and warm, has a huge tv and wood burner which is great to relax in front of after a long walk. It really is a nice place, smart and comfortable with a homely feeling. And of course we used the sauna to relax.
The kitchen is well equipped and we found the Aga handy when cooking for our large group. There is plenty of utensils and we could all sit round either the kitchen table or the formal dining table, which we did to enjoy our birthday meal! The fridge is huge, with plenty of room for the essential wine chilling for large groups like us.
The property downstairs is open plan and there is a large open area which we use as a dance floor! A great place for a celebration.
Outside there is a lot of parking, and front garden is on several usuable tiers. It was lovely to sit out on the nice day and watch the world go by. At the back is a rough grassed garden plentiful with birds and wildlife.
It is only a very short walk (couple of mins at most) to the main part of Betws with all the shops, cafe's and pubs. A lovely walk is on the doorstep up to Llyn Elsi, but Betws is central for most Snowdonia walking which makes the property suitable for groups like us with hard core walkers are people who just want a shorter walk.
A great base for a comfortable and luxurious break in Snowdonia. Highly recommended.
