Cottage
Swn-y-Dwr is a contemporary holiday cottage in the heart of Betws-y-Coed, The Snowdonia National Park, North Wales and sleeps up to 11 people. It is situated by the River Llugwy, one minute's walk from the Pont-y-Pair bridge and has extensive, landscaped gardens which sweep down to the river. Its new owners – Nick and Emiko Corney – have tastefully and extensively renovated the accommodation to a very high standard, including wi-fi and a hot water supply – which is augmented by solar power – for its four bathrooms (three of which are en-suite).

And yes, there are salmon, sea trout and the occasional otter to be viewed from the garden! Our website http://www.swn-y-dwr.co.uk/More
