Snowdonia without a car

More and more guests are discovering the freedom offered by car-free holidays in North Wales. Increasingly, our guests are either leaving their cars at home or in our car park once they arrive and exploring the area by alternative bus, train, bicycle or on foot.

Car-less visitors are anything but stranded, especially here in Betws-y-Coed, the Gateway to Snowdonia. It’s the region’s most lively and picturesque village. We’ve got a lovely village station for both trains and busses just a few minutes’ walk from the house, and once you are here you can take the path into the village and enjoy the all local attractions on foot. Many of our guests are walkers and cyclists escaping from city life for a few days. We have a huge choice of routes running right from our front door.

If you want to go a little further afield, there are regular direct buses to Snowdon and other areas of interest. You can even jump on the train and reach places like Llandudno (45 mins) and Blaenau Ffestiniog (30 mins) and even on towards Portmadoc on the Ffestiniog Railway. Why pay £10.00 to park at Pen-y-Pass car park to climb Snowdon when you can get the bus for just £1.50 per person.

Below are just some ideas of activities and days out you can do without the car, but if there is something special you wish to do just ask us for details and we will be happy to help plan your day.
