About Glan yr Afon CottageThis cosy stone-built farmhouse in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park is the perfect spot for a peaceful retreat.
Tucked away in a picturesque Welsh valley, Glan yr Afon offers the unique chance to stay within the grounds of Tŷ Mawr Wybrnant, a culturally iconic 16th century farmhouse. It’s the perfect place to escape the bustle of modern life and immerse yourself in the culture and nature of Wales.
Sleeping 5, with a double, a twin and a single room, and with storage space for five bikes, Glan yr Afon is a great base for walkers and cyclists. Whether you want to unwind by exploring the river walks and forest cycle trails on your doorstep or relax to the burbling sound of the stream running past the front door, you’ll find plenty of ways to enjoy your tranquil surroundings.
Guests are also welcome to explore the grounds of Tŷ Mawr Wybrnant, famed as the birthplace of Bishop William Morgan whose act of translating the Bible into Welsh, helped save the language.
After an invigorating day’s exploration, you can cook yourself a hearty meal in the cottage’s characterful kitchen, complete with slate work surfaces and quarry-tile floor. Then snuggle down in the cosy sitting room by the wood burner. Or, on those long summer evenings, relax on the outdoor seating in the beautiful open garden, listening to the sounds of nature all around you.
Further afield, the historic village of Betws-y-Coed is just over 4 miles away, where you can stop for a cuppa and cake in one of its many tea-rooms.
*In line with Welsh Government COVID-19 regulations Tŷ Mawr Wybrnant is currently closed. Please check the website for the latest updates.
