“Absolutely perfect!”
Reviewed 5 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Having spent many many hours searching for the perfect holiday rental for 9 people for a special family Christmas, I was delighted to find Swn y Dyr and couldn't believe my luck to discover it was available for the dates we wanted. From the first moment of contacting Nick, he couldn't do enough to help us make our Christmas stay perfect, even taking delivery of and unpacking a rather large tesco order for me a day before we arrived on Christmas Eve. The pictures on the website looked wonderful, but once we arrived, the property totally exceeded my expectations.

The property itself is stunning, absolutely pristine condition and not a single thing has been overlooked, even down to providing those odd things you sometimes need like sellotape and a pad of paper, very useful for those family games of scrabble!! The beds and Bed linen are of a very good quality and extremely comfortable.

We were 5 adults and 4 children under 10, but we never felt cramped. Spread over three floors, there was plenty of space for everyone with a beautiful and large kitchen and living area. The garden was beautiful but we didn't get an opportunity to use it as the weather was not kind!!! But I could only imagine how wonderful it would be to sit on the balcony or in the garden when the weather is positive.

The drying room was a particular bonus, given that we were there during some of the worst floods in memory in the area. Needless to say the room was put to very good use!!

Thanks again Nick and Emiko for a wonderful stay, I have recommended you already to everyone I have told about our great stay. Without doubt the best holiday home we have stayed in in the uk....the perfect location in beautiful Betws y coed, I sincerely hope to have the opportunity to return in the future, I can only hope it is available when we want to return because a property this good in such a beautiful location is sure to be a big hit.

“Fantastic weekend break!”
Reviewed 4 December 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed at Swn y Dwr for a weekend break with family. 5 adults and 5 children.
What a fantastic time we had. Swn y Dwr is equipped with everything you could possibly need for a relaxing break. It has been beautifully renovated. There is plenty of space for 11 people, yet retains a cosiness. Our stay was so blissful, we didn't want to leave!!
It is a couple of minutes walk to all amenities including great pubs and restaurants. A mooch around the shops is a must! There are fantastic walks too. Scenery is breathtaking.
Highly recommended. We will be back!
