Farm Holiday Cottage Near Betws Y Coed | Hafod-Y-Coed

Dog FriendlyNear PubReal FireFarm Stay

This traditional old barn has been converted into a fantastic farm holiday cottage near Betws Y Coed in Eryri (Snowdonia), North Wales. As well as providing some lovely holiday accommodation staying at Hafod-Iwrch gives you that chance to taste the farming life we’ve all wondered about as some time or other. Taking the time to chat to the unbelievably cute piglets in the field next door or feeding the chickens on the other side of the barn or just watching the lambs gambolling across the fields as you enjoy a glass of wine on the patio at the end of the day.

Inside the living area is one big open plan space. A comfortable leather sofa and armchair surrounds a very welcoming log fire and a large flat screen TV. The kitchen area and dining table sits at the other end of the room. The kitchen is very well equipped and includes a modern electric oven and hob, dishwasher and large fridge freezer. The dining table and chairs are a contemporary oak design.

Some impressive welsh slate flags cover the floor made to feel luxuriously warm by a modern electric powered under-floor heating system. The high vaulted ceilings give the cottage a great sense of light and space while carefully selected fixtures and fitting ads a touch of style and elegance.

There are two bedrooms either end of the cottage. The first double bedroom has the advantage of a large en-suite shower room. There are oak floorboards in the bedrooms. Some lovely ledge and brace solid wood doors and modern oak beds and bedside tables compliment this.

The twin bedroom is very similar and, like the rest of the cottage, is dotted with some tasteful soft furnishings and blinds. The adjoining family bathroom has a shower over bath arrangement as well as a wc and washbasin.

The cottage is located on a small holding farm near Capel Garmon some 3 miles from the ever popular Betws Y Coed.

North Wales and Eryri (Snowdonia National Park) is fast becoming a mecca for adventure sports of course. Blaenau Ffestiniog some 20 minutes to the south of the cottage is a particular hot spot. A 4 man zip line will carry you high above the valley floor. Once you're finished you might like to descend below ground to experience the amazing Bounce Below. A system of underground trampoline nets suspended within the historic slate caverns. If that isn’t enough you could have a go at the internationally renowned down hill mountain biking trails also located in the town.

Historical and cultural attractions are also a big draw for a lot of our guests. Narrow gauge steam railways, historical industrial sites and ancient castles and fortifications are dotted all over this part of the world. Caernarfon Castle, Harlech Castle and Conwy Castle are all within an hours drive.

And a renewed interest in our food and agricultural heritage has led to a resurgence in fine dining and farmers markets. The Bodnant Welsh Food Centre, 30 minutes to the north, is highly recommended.

Fantastic break at Hanford-Y-Coed , couldn’t have asked for a more peaceful and beautiful location which was complemented by a wonderful cottage . Already planning a return .

Carole Shaw

Worth the trip up the hill as the views are stunning.
The cottage is beautiful with everything you need. Our two dogs loved the garden & running around the paddock.
Wonderful relaxing weekend

Christine Reid

Beautiful cottage, has everything you need and then some. Peaceful location but also only a couple of miles to the town. Great base to explore what snowdonia has to offer.


The best cottage , we have ever stayed in . It was perfect, warm, comfortable beds, great shower, log burner , and so well equipment .
The views were lovely , my daughter was even, woken up by a sheep licking her bedroom window, the were chickens, ( which we were given half dozen eggs on our arrival ) a horse, Nell the sheep dog .
Sue and Iona were really friendly and welcoming ..
We stayed in most of the week as the weather was terrible due to a storm or two .
We did go to Bodnant gardens, beautiful and well worth a view. Dogs are only going to be aloud certain days soon, so check if you have dog .
Thank you

Our stay at Hafod y Coed was amazing. From the beautiful cottage, the idyllic setting and the wonderful owners Sue and Ioan. Sue was very helpful but not intrusive, was on hand should we have needed her, the bara brith and Welsh cakes were a welcome supprise and absolutely delicious. We would not hesitate to recommend staying there, it has beautifully renovated and the underfloor heating and log burner were just blissful. We hope to return in the summer when the weather is better and enjoy the lovely walks. However the wind and rain gave us the opportunity to enjoy the cottage.

Had a lovely relaxing week in Hafod Y Coed. The cottage had everything we needed and was warm to return to after our rainy days out. The log stove was very welcome on our arrival day, which was very wet and.blustery, but not needed for the rest of the week. A peaceful location, wonderful views and surrounded by sheep, hens and a few pigs. Within an hours drive to all the places we wanted to visit on the coast. Sue and Ioan are generous and welcoming hosts.

We had a lovely short break at Hafod Irwyd, such a peaceful location but still close to the amenities of Snowdonia. And that rare combination of being both luxurious and also pet friendly! We loved seeing life on the farm; feeding the pigs in the morning and seeing the lovely sheepdog Nel dashing about keeping an eye on everything, plus the fresh eggs and cakes 🙂 Definitely will return here next time we go back to North Wales.
