The village of Betws-y-Coed is about 1 mile from the cottage. It has a good selection of restaurants and shops, and attractions include a railway museum and miniature railway, indoor swimming pool and golf course, plus the family-friendly treetop nets and new Fforest Coaster at Zip World Fforest. Most food items you will need can be found at SPAR shop and bakery and Iechyd Da Deli in the village.
There are many walks direct from the cottage around the surrounding hills and lakes, and a delightful 15-minute walk along the forestry road takes you to Betws-y-Coed.
Mountain bikers are well catered for with two of the best mountain bike trails in the country a few miles away at the Marin Trail and Penmachno Trail. Mountain bike storage is available at the cottage.
Adrenaline junkies will love the area with Zipworld (the largest zip wire zone in the world), Bounce Below (where you can jump on trampoline nets in an old slate cavern), Surf Snowdonia (the worlds first inland surfing lake) and Plas y Brenin Mountaineering Centre and Ski Slope all within 20 minutes drive!
The famous Bodnant Garden (National Trust) is just down the valley and is a garden well worth visiting at any time of year as it now has a winter garden that opened in 2013.
There are plenty of other National Trust properties to visit in North Wales, and of course the castles for which Wales is famous. Conwy Castle is down the valley where the river Conwt meets the sea, and other castles such as Caernarfon and Dolwyddelan are within easy reach.
Steam railway enthusiasts can visit the Ffestiniog Railway, Welsh Highland Railway, and Snowdon Mountain Railway and others in the area.
You can also visit the North Wales coast including the victorian resort of Llandudno with it's wide promenade and unspoilt seafront, and the sandy beaches of Cardigan Bay and Anglesey.
