STS Grade 3 
This is a lovely split level 17th century cottage of much character in the heart of the Snowdonia village of Trefriw with shops, restaurants and woollen mill all within 5 mins walk. Hidden in the hills above the village are Crafnant and Geirionydd lakes surrounded by mystical scenery of the Gwydyr Forest. All are excellent places to explore and to have shore side picnics. Gwydyr Forest's Marin Trail is just a short bike ride away, perfect for mountain biking adventures.
Lovingly restored Grade II listed family home includes a magnificent inglenook fireplace housing a log burning stove, a gallery and 2 foot thick walls. Returning guests complement its airy layout with the gallery opening into the kitchen/diner but still keeping a  comfortable feel. Poet's Cottage near shops, restaurants and village inns. Great butchers opposite selling home made meat pies. Just 2 miles from the market town of Llanrwst and 4 miles from the stunning beauty of Betws y Coed, in the heart of Snowdonia.

Guest Feedback:
Mr & Mrs C:"We had a fabulous week. The cottage is lovely. The rooms are all good sized doubles. The quality of the equipment in the cottage was great - from the fantastic shower and radio in the bathroom, to the resources and cooking equipment in the kitchen. Everything was of a high standard. The caretaker couldn't have been more helpful. The cottage is ideally placed for visiting the local area. We visited Caernarfon, Llanberis, Conwy and attractions including the Trefriw Woollen Mill, Sygun Copper Mine, and Shell Island. We also walked to the Fairy Falls and Llyn Crafnant - a beautiful walk. We had a wonderful week. If anyone is worried that the cottage is on the main road through the village, after 9pm at night you couldn't hear anything, and the road isn't that busy anyway during the day."
Mr & Mrs M:"Have just spent a wonderful week at Poet's Cottage, which was fab. The cottage had everything that we needed and more. The walks around here are great. Would highly recommend The Fairy Falls hotel for food, plus the little butchers across the road. Can't wait to come back next year."
Mr M:"Poet's Cottage more than met our requirements. We were here to walk the hills and this is an ideal base. Finding bread, milk, butter, tea and coffee was a surprise and a very generous extra. We enjoyed our stay very much."
Mr & Mrs J:"Two village pubs both very good, The Fairy Falls probably more keenly priced for food. Village butcher very friendly and helpful - own produce excellent, including pies, sausage rolls and pasties! Village cafe well worth a visit - especially for breakfast! Trefriw is a hidden gem and Poet's Cottage a real find! Thanks for your friendly welcome."
