nice little railway, kids will love it, you will need to be flexible to fit in it if you are an adult though! trackside cafe offers decent coffee and snacks, and there is a small shop and museum.

It's very small and several of the train set displays weren't working. If you're here anyway it might be worth visiting if you really like model trains but I wouldn't recommend travelling far to visit.

We’ve been coming here for years and we all love a ride on the miniature railway. It’s a beautiful place. The museum is also really interesting and there’s lots to look at. Great value for money and great for young and old alike.

Visited in August 2019 on my Wales holiday. I spent a day in Betws-y-Coed and walked around to see as much as I can. The model shop or museum is next to the railway station, the entry ticket is an old style paper ticket to let us behind the shop. It is very small, but definitely interesting and full with old models, built up whole villages and many of them is interactive with different buttons to push. Not just models but everything related to old fashioned railways and travels are pretty much can be found here, so it is a nostalgia journey. That time only me and a male visitor were in the room, but we both enjoyed to play around. There are toilets on site, and in the shop we can buy gifts. Cafe is in the station, parking is on the street, or one of the main car parks in the village.

Our son adores trains and it has become our thing now to visit somewhere train related whenever we're on holiday. We found this lovely place online and decided to visit. It is set in such a beautiful setting opposite Bets-y-Coen train station. The miniature railway was a lovely little circuit and our son loved it. There was a £1 Toby (from Thomas & Friends) ride which the kids can "drive" themselves. This was naturally our sons favourite thing as he got to be the driver. The shop is quite small but sells a good range of model railway items if that's your thing and a selection of toys good enough for our little train enthusiast. We'll definitely be returning in future
