Cottages near Conwy at the edge of Snowdonia

The holiday cottages are situated on a traditionally run smallholding in a peaceful location 4 miles from Conwy in the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales.

Tyn-y-Coed Farm is a 15 acre working smallholding set in rolling countryside in the beautiful Conwy Valley. The cottages are set in peaceful countryside, but are ideally located for local towns such as Conwy (4 miles), Llandudno (7 miles) and Betws-y-Coed (12 miles).

The cottages are ideal for families and couples alike. There is a paddock available for exercising your dog. All cottages have a patio area, and there is ample private parking.

Horses can also be accommodated on the farm, so you can bring your horse on holiday with you and go riding in the local countryside. Please contact us for more information.

The pretty village of Rowen with its pub and shop is just 1 mile from the cottages. The oldest licenced pub and restaurant in Wales (The Groes Inn) is 1½ miles away. There are also supermarkets within easy reach (Tesco 5 miles, ASDA 7 miles).

Things To Do and Places To Visit in Snowdonia

North Wales is a great place for a holiday or break and was placed 4th in the world in Lonely Planet's Top Ten 'Best in Travel 2017' list.

This part of Snowdonia in North Wales is ideal for many activities including walking, climbing, mountain biking, horse riding and birdwatching. You can walk up the Carneddau mountain range from the cottages, and the RSPB bird reserve at Conwy, and Marin Mountain Bike Trail are nearby.

There are many adventure attractions locally including Surf Snowdonia (inland surf lagoon) which is a few miles up the valley, and the ZipWorld attractions, ZipWorld Velocity, Fforest and Titan.

If you are looking for something a bit more relaxing, you can also enjoy the stunning local scenery (Snowdonia is famous for its lakes and mountains), or visit some of the numerous local attractions.

These include historic castles such as Conwy Castle, Caernarfon Castle and Harlech Castle, or the steam railways such as the Snowdon Mountain Railway, Ffestiniog Railway, and the Welsh Highland Railway. The famous Bodnant Garden and mountain resort of Betws-y-Coed are nearby. The famous village of Portmeirion is also within easy reach.

Only 4 miles away is delightful Conwy, a World Heritage Site dominated by its splendid castle and completely enclosed in its well-preserved town walls. There's plenty to enjoy in Conwy - the picturesque fishing harbour, Plas Mawr, one of the best preserved medieval town houses in the country, the National Trust's Aberconwy House, Britain's "smallest house" (worth an interesting, if quick, visit!) as well as the town's shops, pubs and restaurants nestling along the narrow and winding streets.

The Victorian seaside resort of Llandudno is well worth a visit with it's pier and sweeping promenade, and is ideal for some retail therapy.
