Why We Reccommend Trem y Cwm

Warm and welcoming barn conversion near the picturesque mountain village of Betws y Coed at the 'gateway to Snowdonia'. A fine base for action packed or laid back holidays at any time of year.


Family and dog friendly Trem y Cwm is a charming barn conversion in a wonderful location within Snowdonia National Park.  Centrally located for Snowdonia attractions. Sleeps 4 and your dogs are welcome too.
  •  Semi-detached barn (one of a pair), set in the neat courtyard of this charming smallholding, high on the side of a secluded valley.  Airy and open in summer but cosy and warm in winter.  An ideal starting point from which to explore the wild delights that Snowdonia has to offer. 
  • Green credentials abound here. The water comes from a natural (tested) spring and the valley stream produces electricity. The helpful owners of this immaculate smallholding are keen to share their homemade produce with their guests.  You can buy home reared meat and homemade produce from them – great if you enjoy a traditional breakfast and ideal as gifts to take home.
  • Children are encouraged to learn about the food on their plate through interaction with the farm, egg gathering for breakfast is an exciting start to the day.  
  • Stylish and welcoming this hillside cottage has a wonderful alpine feel. The far-reaching views of distant peaks are inspiring and beg you to explore these fascinating mountains and tiny villages.
  • Luxury features such as underfloor heating, power showers, a log burning stove and quality furnishings have all been carefully chosen to offer comfort and relaxation after an exhilarating day in this fun filled part of North Wales.
  • The ground floor bedrooms are convenient and have contemporary furnishings - ideal for families.

It is filled with memorabilia and a perfect spot for a leisurely lunch.

Conwy Castle

  • Built for Edward I, by Master James of St George, the castle rates as one of the finest surviving medieval fortifications in Britain.
