Betws y Coed
Betws y Coed is recognised as Wales’ most famous inland resort with the busiest railway station on the Conwy Valley line. The three tributaries of the river Conwy, the Llugwy, the Machno and the Lledr meet here at Betws y Coed, bringing together a wealth of mountain and woodland scenery.
This “Gateway to Snowdonia” is a tremendous centre for all grades of walks, rambles and hill climbs and the more adventurous can hire a guide or mountain bike for the day.
Once a renowned artists’ colony, today Betws y Coed has a fine selection of hotels, restaurants and cafes and many shops catering to the fashion-conscious through to the serious mountaineer.
The miniature railway and railway museum will delight children of all ages.
Five minutes walk from the station will bring you to the Snowdonia National Park Tourist Information Centre located at the stables where experienced staff are available to deal with all your enquiries.
Bus links and through-ticketing, from any UK railway station, provide access to Snowdonia utilising the famous Sherpa bus network.
