Tŷ'r Gofalwr

Llanrwst/ Betws-y-Coed, Snowdonia National Park

about the property

Snowdonian holiday cottage with a 5* interior, on a wonderful Victorian country house estate. This wonderful cottage near Bettws-y-Coed has the perfect location for a Snowdonia holiday in North Wales.

Situated in the heart of Snowdonia, this former coach house and dairy has been lovingly renovated with original artwork by well-known British artists.

Tŷ'r Gofalwr (Caretaker's cottage), is located on a lovely Snowdonian country house estate within the 14 acres of its own grounds, parkland and victorian kitchen garden.

The cottage is situated in the grounds of the main house which is home to an art gallery, coffee shop and restuarant.

It is only 1.5 miles to lovely Llanrwst (antiques, castle, cafes) or just 3 miles from Betws-Y-Coed (the heart of the National Park), and close to some breathtaking mountain walks and miles of gorgeous beaches, this makes it the perfect retreat for a family or two couples. Just 20 minutes to the beach!

Just returned from a blissful few days in this lovely cottage - the location is great with some stunning scenery and good walks close by (particularly along the river from Betws - y - Coed). The cottage is beautiful - cosy and comfortable (great bed!) with interesting art all over. We loved stopping by the nearby gallery, definitely worth a visit. We are already planning our return in a few months!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tŷ'r Gofalwr. The setting is beautiful and very quiet but still close enough to local attractions and facilities. The cottage is tastefully renovated and decorated and had everything we needed. We would love to stay again in the future.

Hi, we all had a great time here. Original art, high spec kitchen and bathroom, ample hot hot water, wood Burning stove, very comfortable beds and pillows. No more to say, but more to discover. and that is not including the coffee shop and galleries....... Ing stove

A lovely cottage in a beautiful part of the UK. The area is ideal for hikes and we were lucky enough that the weather allowed us to enjoy the Glyders and Crib Goch trail. And even more rewarding after a long day in the mountains to return to the luxury of Ty'r Gofalwr with its cosy interior and fireplace.

The cottage is very well appointed with beautiful furniture, paintings and artefacts. It felt very spacious for a cottage and had plenty of natural light. We enjoyed visiting the art gallery and coffee bar in the main house (excellent cakes!) and wandering about the grounds, especially the walled garden. There are plenty of walks in the immediate neighbourhood too. It was a very peaceful place, but not isolated - Betws y Coed and Llanrwst are just short drives away. This is definitely a place we will be returning to.

Lovely cottage in a great setting. Everything you could need for your stay available in the accommodation, but do bring a torch as it's needed at night! Loved visiting the art exhibitions next door, although those scrumptious cakes in the coffee shop are far too tempting! Ralph, Roland and staff all friendly, welcoming and helpful. A great time was had!

We thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay in this most beautiful place. Our hosts, Roland and Ralph, could not have been more accommodating and made us feel very much at home. Our two youngs boys asked if we could go back again next year!

Loved staying at the cottage. Perfect location for mountaineering and exploring, and having Ffin y Parc right next door is great! Lovely afternoon tea, cakes and en evening of Gin and tonics was just perfect! Our hosts were also lovely. Would definitely stay again.
