Holiday Rental House
WELCOME!.... to our Alpine-style country home in the Snowdonia National Park, North Wales. The Country Garden House accommodates four people in comfort; it is the single storey, sunny, south wing of our home, Golygfa'r Llywelyn (The View of Llywelyn). WHERE ARE WE? We are high up on the wooded hillside overlooking the village of Betws-y-Coed, with magnificent views of Snowdonia to the west. As its name suggests, the Country Garden House is located in our secluded, beautiful, rambling garden. Perfectly situated for exploring the hills and mountains of Snowdonia and the many coastal haunts of North Wales. Snowdon, the highest mountain in England and Wales, is 20 minutes away; the historic castle and walled town of Conwy is 18 miles away and the market town of Llanrwst is a few miles up ...WELCOME!.... to our Alpine-style country home in the Snowdonia National Park, North Wales.
