A stunning place to stay with impressive credentials when it comes to sustainability: this is luxury accommodation in an old turbine house in Betws-y-Coed. It sleeps up to seven guests in three bedrooms.

You can’t help but feel that if ever there were a house that had earned a stunning makeover, this is it. Pwerdy has come a long way since it was built as a hardworking little turbine house in the early 20th century.

Originally home to a hydroelectric generator fed with water drawn from Llyn Elsi in the hills above, it supplied the community of Betws-y-Coed with electricity before the mountain village was connected to the national grid.

Now enjoying a whole new existence in what must surely be its golden years, Pwerdy has been skilfully converted to a five-star standard holiday cottage.

The house is really beautifully presented, with some standout design features that tip a nod to its industrial past. We love the big sociable living area, the clean modern lines of the furniture, and the natural fabrics and muted colours – inspired by the Snowdonia landscapes – used throughout. The bespoke metal fixtures and shelving are just brilliant.

Downstairs at this luxury accommodation in an old turbine house in Betws-y-Coed you’ll find a bright open plan living space. There is an extremely smart and very well equipped kitchen complete with an electric hob and oven, and a modern oak dining table.

The giant map of Snowdonia which covers the entirety of one wall behind the dining table will keep you amused for hours. It’s a great backdrop, and a fab way to plot your day out over breakfast - or retrace the route actually travelled over a debrief, drinks and dinner.

The sitting room area has a large and plump L shaped sofa and a couple of comfortable armchairs, with a powerful log burner to keep things cosy. There is a smart TV, and good views from the sitting room windows to the front of the property. There is wooden flooring throughout, and you’ll also find a WC with loo and wash basin downstairs.

Head upstairs to find three beautiful bedrooms – two doubles and one room with bunk beds. The bottom bunk pulls out to create a third bed space. There is a shared family bathroom with a shower and bath.

As for Pwerdy’s roots: the old heart of the house, its original hydroelectric generator, has been restored. It now occupies a small building to the rear of the property, and still provides renewable energy to the national grid. An entirely suitable sustainable legacy.

Location

 

The beautiful mountain village of Betws y Coed is the gateway to the mountains, forests and lakes of the Snowdonia National Park. Surrounded by the dense Gwydir Forest, it has an almost Alpine feel.

The cottage sits on the outskirts of Betws, around half a mile from the village centre. It is an easy 10-minute walk to the many independent traders, outdoor gear shops and cafés, pubs and restaurants in the centre of the village. Betws has some very decent places to eat. You’ll also find a good number of art galleries displaying talented Welsh artists.

Whatever the season, the landscapes in this part of the world are strikingly beautiful. There are countless lovely walks from the cottage, with some great circular routes to suit all ages and fitness levels. The walk out to the idyllic Llyn Elsi hidden in the Gwydir Forest is just one of our favourites. It’s definitely worth investing in a good walking guide if you like getting out to explore.

You only need to step a little further out of the village to explore some of Snowdonia’s best peaks including Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon), Moel Siabod, Moel Penamen, Carnedd Cribau and Y Pincin to name but a few.
