Last but not least Gwydir Castle over the bridge first left at the end (0.3 mile) then 100 yds L.H.Side it may look closed go through small door in gate and 'follow your nose' you are in for a big surprise ! The owners seem to keep the place unadvertised I do not know why it is a 'gold mine' if marketed well,
Betws-Y-Coed (4 miles) is a fine destination, it is a picturesque village with riverside setting, ancient bridge, a typical welsh stone and slate village but with a full range of shops, hotel restaurants etc
Portmeirion (20miles) 'The Prisoner' T.V. Series was filmed here with Patrick Mc Goohan, a 'must see'

WET WEATHER DAYS-The slate mine at Blenau Ffestiniog (14 miles) makes for a wonderful experience, as soon as you decend on the narrow track railway you understand how dangerous it was all those years ago. Be prepared for a 'eye opener' of a day, just before Ffestiniog as you go down the hill on the left hand side The copper mine at Llandudno (15 miles) was only discovered some twenty years ago and is still being excavated but it is unique and well worth a visit It seems hard to believe that traders sailed in open boats from the Mediterranean a thousand plus years ago to buy copper from the Great Orm Llandudno, it was the largest copper mine in the known world.
There is also a slate mine near Bedgelet, (15 miles) 2 miles before the village on the left hand side. There is information on these mines on the table.
GARDENERS-There is the famous National Trust Bodnant Garde
First time in Wales and really enjoyed our stay. Close to all North Wales has to offer, including the lovely town of Llanrwst with local shops restaurants and welcoming public houses. The booking process was easy and Len most helpful, and we hope to come to Wales again in the near future.
Great place close to lots of amazing outdoor adventures. Cute town.
House is as advertised. Great spot for 7 of us (4 adults, 3 kids) plus two dogs to use for all Snowdonia has to offer.
Len (the owner) is very receptive and helpful. He even had a great recommendation for us when our tyre was flat after a long road trip to Wales.
We would definitely stay there again.
The location of this house is great. It is within walking distance to the town and driving distance to many attractions in northern Wales. The host, Len, was very responsive and gave great recommendations and directions.
We were a large group and managed with the one shower (but 3 bathrooms); Len is planning to put in another shower this fall which will be helpful for other larger groups in the future.
We are grateful the carpets had been cleaned but as a result there was a strong residual odor. We would have preferred other flooring than carpet in the bathrooms and kitchen. The living room furniture is tired but the beds are comfy.
We stayed at Len and Jan's home in Llanrwst for two months starting in November 2014 and had an absolutely brilliant time. The house had everything we needed and plenty of space for our family with three kids. We were even able to receive some family visitors with space to spare—the house really opened up nicely and we were comfortable throughout.
The property is impossible to describe with the Gwydir forest, Conwy River, and the Snowdonia mountains, all looming just outside the backyard. Closer to the back fence, the daily meandering of sheep, bleating and munching grass (rain or shine), was incredibly peaceful. The grey weather outside never affected us indoors, as the central heat and little fireplace in the living room were more than enough to keep the cold away.
Day trips to Llandudno, Conwy, Betws-y-Coed, Porthmadog, Bangor, and Caernarfon are all extremely easy from the property. Even a nice walk to Betws-y-Coed (about 4 miles) or Trefriw (about 2 miles) is easy from this well-positioned property. And even in two months without a car, we barely scratched the surface of the amazing, gorgeous walks in the North Wales area.
As for Len and Jan, they were incredibly accommodating for our family. From bringing their welsh spaniel to come play with my young children to finding a coffee pot for us Americans accustomed to morning coffee to giving us a ride to the train station when it was time for us to leave, they met every need and then some. We couldn't have asked for better hosts.
It's off the beaten path, but you couldn't do better than spending some time in this peaceful, lovely area. And this is the house in which to do it—you just might love it as much as we did!
This large home in Llanrwst was perfect for our visit to Snowdonia and
Northern Wales. Our hosts Jan and Len were friendly, helpful, and easy
to work with. Emailing information was simple and much appreciated.
The home has a lovely large kitchen and a spacious living area. Nice
bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs. Plenty of closet space. Big back yard. Great location for exploring the area and Snowdonia National Park. Easy walk into Llanrwst and pubs, restaurants, and the computers to check email at the library. The nearby Trefriw Woolen Mills with its lovely large shop, museum, and inexpensive café is a real treat. Castles at Conwy and Caernarfon are amazing, as is the drive from Betws-y-Coed
to Llanberis - beautiful scenery! The Honey Shop at Llanberis is delightful. From Llanberis we drove on to Caernarfon, Criccieth, Porthmadog, Blaenau Ffestiniog, and back to Betws-y-Coed, and back home to llanwrst - a wonderful drive. Friendly people everywhere. This home is a bargain! Thanks Jan and Len! Andy and Ann from San Antonio, Texas, USA
We found 'Eagles View' to be the perfect base for exploring Snowdonia and the towns of North Wales. It is located in a peaceful street with lovely views from the back, just a short walk into town, and was tidy and well-maintained. The kitchen was well-equipped with a good supermarket in town (Co-Op) from which to buy supplies. The owner responded to email queries promptly (thanks Len!). We would stay here again and would definitely recommend to family and friends.

DOG OWNERS / WALKERS- There are miles and miles of well marked paths in the Gwydir Forest which is a matter of a few minutes drive from the house, you can park your car in a well designed and safe car park and 'get lost' for hours, see if you can get as far as the lakes !

It might be wise to invest in an O S. map as there are footpaths everywhere and most are well marked, plan a day before you arrive. There is also a very nice stone 'beach' just up - river from the Gwydir Park, great for dog swimming, and some fields further on to dry it out. The rental rate includes one well behaved dog, most dogs are accepted if you have any further questions, please ask.- SNOWDON- The ultimate walk ! Park the car in the car park at the foot of Snowdon and off you go, you will be best to reserch your route 'on line' before you go, but please no flip - flops, shorts and tee shirts. It can be summer in the car park and winter at the summit ! Do not forget if you get a bit tired you can always come down on the train (check to make sure it is running, it is tourist related).
