Type: Farm Stay, Internet | WiFi, Pet Friendly, Real Fire
This traditional old barn has been converted into a fantastic farm holiday cottage near Betws Y Coed in Snowdonia, North Wales. As well as providing some lovely holiday accommodation, staying at Haford-Y-Coed gives you that chance to taste the farming life we’ve all wondered about at some time or other. Taking the time to chat to the unbelievably cute piglets in the field next door, feeding the chickens on the other side of the barn or just watching the lambs gamboling across the fields as you enjoy a glass of wine on the patio at the end of the day.
Inside the living area is one big open plan space. A comfortable leather sofa and armchair surrounds a very welcoming log fire and a large flat screen TV. The kitchen area and dining table sits at the other end of the room. The kitchen is very well equipped and includes a modern electric oven and hob, dishwasher and large fridge freezer. The dining table and chairs are a contemporary oak design.
Some impressive welsh slate flags cover the floor made to feel luxuriously warm by a modern hydro electric powered under-floor heating system. The high vaulted ceilings give the cottage a great sense of light and space while carefully selected fixtures and fittings add a touch of style and elegance.
There are two bedrooms either end of the cottage. The first double bedroom has the advantage of a large en-suite shower room. There are oak floorboards in the bedrooms. Some lovely ledge and brace solid wood doors and modern oak beds and bedside tables compliment this.
The twin bedroom is very similar and, like the rest of the cottage, is dotted with some tasteful soft furnishings and blinds. The adjoining family bathroom has a shower over bath arrangement as well as a wc and washbasin.

The cottage is located on a small holding farm near Capel Garrmon some 3 miles from the ever popular Betws Y Coed. North Wales and the Snowdonia National park is fast becoming a mecca for adventure sports of course. Blaenau Ffestiniog some 20 minutes to the south of the cottage is a particular hot spot. A 4 man zip line will carry you high above the valley floor. Once you’re finished you might like to descend below ground to experience the amazing Bounce Below. A system of underground trampoline nets suspended within the historic slate caverns. If that isn’t enough you could have a go at the internationally renowned down hill mountain biking trails also located in the town.
Historical and cultural attractions are also a big draw for a lot of our guests. Narrow gauge steam railways, historical industrial sites and ancient castles and fortifications are dotted all over this part of the world. In fact, the Capel Garmon Neolithic Burriel Chamber is within walking distance of the cottage and is well worth a visit. Caernarvon Castle, Harlech Castle and Conwy Castle are all within an hours drive.
And a renewed interest in our food and agricultural heritage has led to a resurgence in fine dining and farmers markets. The Bodnant Welsh Food Centre, 30 minutes to the north, is highly recommended. We’re also pleased to note that the village pub in Betws Garmon has recently been re opened. The pub is 1.7 miles from the cottage so just about wakable I would say.
