Stay in the Self Contained East Wing of the beautiful historic Rhydlanfair Farmhouse. Rhydlanfair is a working farm and is owned by the National Trust. There has been a dwelling on this site since 1273, though the current farmhouse was built in the 18th Century. The accommodation is spacious and comfortable, and sleeps 4. Tastefully furnished throughout, features include a wood-burning stove in the living room, an attractive French rosewood bed, and views over the surrounding farmland.
The house, which at one time was an inn, has many original features and is situated on the edge of Thomas Telford's historic London to Holyhead stage coach route, now known as the A5. Sarah and Tom farm cattle, sheep and keep donkeys on this upland farm, and there is a delightful farm trail which winds its way around the farm, and is exclusively available to guests of Rhydlanfair.
Rhydlanfair is very easily accessed and is situated just a short drive from Betws y Coed, the Gateway to Snowdonia, where shops, pubs, restaurants and a wealth of outdoor activities can be found. Activities that are close on hand include a well maintained 9 hole golf course, the family friendly Zip World Forest, plus a dry ski slope at the area’s renowned outdoor centre in Capel Curig. For those looking for something a little different there are tours down some of the many disused mines of the region and these can be booked at the nearby ‘Go Below’ underground adventure centre. The area also offers a wide array of possibilities for cyclists, for both the adrenaline junkies and for those who just want to enjoy a leisurely cycle ride in the breath-taking scenery of Snowdonia. Rhydlanfair is an excellent spot from which to visit other attractions in North Wales such as Zip World and Surf Snowdonia, plus of course our spectacular mountains, lakes and beaches. Hill walking, horse riding, rock climbing and canoeing can all be enjoyed from this easily accessible yet quiet location. There are also several historic buildings in the area, including Gwydir Castle near Llanrwst, and Ty Mawr, Wybrnant near Penmachno as well as various heritage railways, which are always popular with visitors.
A half hour car ride will take you sites where you can walk (or train ride!) to the famous summit of Snowdon. A pleasant 40 minute drive following the Conwy river down the valley will lead you to the historic walled medieval garrison town of Conwy and its 13th century Castle built by Edward I. Beyond the world heritage site of Conwy lies the Victorian seaside town of Llandudno, which boasts not only two beaches and the longest pier in Wales, but also a wealth of other activities including ski-slope, cable cars, theatre, swimming pool, shopping centre and cinema.
