About Michael Clair

I moved to North Wales in 2007 with my wife, three children and our pet Labrador, Max. We live in Llandudno in a beautiful family home which has taken six years to renovate. Before we moved here we spent a lot of time either holidaying in the area and eventually purchased the Cottage in 2006. We used it as a family holiday home until we moved here permanently.

Michael Clair purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Michael Clair chose Wales

I chose Betws-Y-Coed for its unspoilt beautiful location and the many local attractions it has to offer. It provides the contrast of a peaceful setting that is still within a short driving distance of busier resorts. We purchased Llugwy cottage in 2006 and until recently was rented on a permanent basis for a couple of years, now fully refurbishment Lugwy Cottage is once again a cottage to rent for all to enjoy

What makes this cottage unique

Llugwy Cottage was built in the 1850's with thick stone walls, low ceilings and a large fire place with cast iron log burner. You can sense the history within its structure, the thought of the miners and their families who once lived here. This creates a warm welcoming feeling when you stay and yet is has all the modern facilities you would expect and locally you have access to a huge variety of outdoor activities.

Gorgeous Cottage, Perfect location, everything you need is there!

We had a fantastic 3 nights stay, very comfortable cottage for 2 of us and has everything you need. Location in the National Park is perfect. Gorgeous local walks along with excellent restaurants and cafes. We recommend visiting the Ugly House Tea Room.

Snug, homely and a short walk from the village centre

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a short break with our 2 small children. The cottage is in a perfect location being 2 mins from the heart of the village and the village being at the heart of Snowdonia. It was a short drive through the stunning scenery to the castles on the north coast, and there are loads of activities for all ages within striking distance.

Clean, tidy and as described. The owners were accommodating and great at confirming and staying in touch.

There is a nice pub and a well stocked shop, open till 10, with all the basics about 400m away. The train station with real world rail links and the museum/ narrow gauge line was loved by the whole family.

Swallow Falls is a short drive up the road and well worth seeing, particularly after a rain storm.

It was a wet visit to Wales, but there's plenty to do and it's great to have the fire and cosy kitchen to come back to with comfy beds at the end of the day.

The cottage and location come well recommended.

Fantastic location, lovely cosy cottage, perfect for our family break.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely break in Betwsycoed at the cottage. We stayed at the beginning of November and although the weather was typically autumnal the cottage was warm and welcoming. The owners even left a gift of wine and chocolates which were much appreciated. There were lots of brochures with information of places to eat and places to visit as well as info on the cottage, everything very straightforward and easy to use. Cottage very clean and tidy and deceptively spacious, with 4 of us and a dog we had more than enough room.

This cottage is in a very central location. We didnt need the car to walk into the village centre at all with lots of dog friendly cafes and shops which helped immensly at this time of year. Great walking in the local area too.

All in all a great short break

We hope to revisit you again soon.

Lovely cottage, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This lovely cottage is perfectly located a couple of minutes' walk from the restaurants, shops and attractions of Betwys y Coed which, in turn, is a short drive from the hills. It was very comfortable for 4 adults. The heating is excellent and the fire and sofas makes it feel very cosy. The kitchen is well equipped - so nice to have decent knives and pans in a rental cottage. Parking was straightforward, if sometimes up to 50 metres away. Not a problem for us - we were there on a walking holiday after all. Excellent customer service from Mike the owner and warmly recommended to others. Just don't book on the week we want to come back.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is situated in a beautiful setting. It was clean, tidy and welcoming. The cottage is well equipped and comfortable. The surrounding area is gorgeous, and central to everything we needed. Myself and my family would like to thank the owners for the loan of their cottage, it's simply magical and we will definitely return one day.

Set in a beautiful valley in the Snowdonia Forest Park, it is ideal for outdoor activity holidays. Numerous Craft and outdoor activity shops are in the village with the popular Swallow Falls nearby. It’s has a wonderful setting surrounded by dense woodland and magnificent mountain country is only part of the answer. The beauty of the area is enhanced by cascading waterfalls, hill-top lakes, river pools and ancient bridges. Ever since the Victorian artists flocked to the area and formed the first artist colony it has been a Mecca for those that appreciate its unique natural beauty.
