about the property

Luxury Snowdonia holiday lodge cottage on a Country House estate near Betws-y-Coed – certainly one of the finest quality holiday cottages in Snowdonia mountains and North Wales.

  • Selected by the Observer newspaper as the best self-catering for a 'great outdoors' break in Snowdonia!

This former coach house and dairy has been lovingly renovated to a high standard, with original artwork by well-known British artists. Y Golchdy is located on a Snowdonian country house estate. You have access over the 14 acres of grounds, parkland and victorian kitchen garden. You have a well equipped kitchen yourself...but then just round the corner is the art gallery and coffee shop.

Your cottage is just three miles from Betws-Y-Coed (generally considered the heart of the National Park), and close to some breathtaking mountain walks and miles of gorgeous beaches, this makes it the perfect retreat for two as a special romantic getaway.

customer reviews for Y Golchdy

We stayed here for seven nights. The cottage is a gem, really beautifully done and the location perfect for just hanging out or as a base for exploring Snowdonia. The cafe and art gallery in the grounds are both excellent and our host Ralph could not have been more helpful or welcoming. Will definitely return.

Our stay at Y Goldchdy was so lovely. The cottage was quirky and gorgeous from the moment you walked in the door. The modern kitchen going up into the cosy living and sleeping area was as Ralph described it like "a den". It was so nice to be able to get the woodburner going and settle in listening to the wind howling outside but being so warm inside. Everything is provided including some logs to get the fire going. The view from the sitting area was into a field with some little lambs running round. Its only about a 10 minute drive into Betws-y-Coed or Llanwrst to its ideally located for a visit to Snowdonia or some of the local Zipworld activities. Can't recommend this place enough for a stay, Thanks Ralph and Roland for welcoming us to this lovely cottage

Excellent New Years get away! Beautiful accommodation and grounds. We received a really top notch welcome; settled in quickly and got the wood burner going - we were provided with everything needed! The surrounding area was fab, despite being winter we still made the most of Conwy, Newborough beach on New Year’s Day and Betws-y-coed. Fully recommend this holiday home to anyone ...

We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage. The location was perfect for visiting the snowdonia national park and the beautiful coastal towns. The cottage was of a high standard, we loved the spacious layout, bright kitchen and quirky design features. We enjoyed looking around the art gallery and felt really well rested after our break.

It was fabulous! The cottage was already cosy and warm, very clean and we were welcomed by Ralph and his dog. It was a lovely surprise to have great coffee, a bottle of wine and some lush brownies and flapjacks. The place was equipped with everything we needed. The location was very handy for exploring Snowdonia, and the estate itself has a very lovely, calm and special feel about it. Perfect place for our romantic getaway, first one as a couple too! The only thing we found a bit annoying was that we were woken up by both an occasional trickling sound and a loud hissing when (we assume) someone was using the taps next door. This seemed very loud next to the bed even through earplugs that we are both accustomed to using. It wasn't continuous though and definitely didn't ruin anything! One suggestion also: It was a it tricky to get the actual logs to fire up which meant having to use a lot of kindling. It might be nice to make sure people have plenty of kindling (even more than actual logs) to get a good fire going so the logs actually take.
