About Gwernouau Cottage

On a working farm, this renovated cottage is the perfect countryside spot for exploring Snowdonia.

Gwernouau is a pretty, 18th-century cottage and part of a working farm on the Ysbyty Estate. The cottage was renovated by the Penrhyn Estate in the late 19th-century and has many original beams and other features still in place. 

Wake up to the noise of the farm, and nothing else. From here you’ll be able to head straight out into the countryside for day hikes and views of the Snowdonia mountains. The area is excellent for bird watching and fishing.

Eight miles from the cottage is the beautiful town of Betws y Coed, nestled in the heart of Snowdonia. Further afield, adventurers can enjoy more energetic attractions including zip wires, Surf Snowdonia, Rib rides and Bounce Below.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
