Tir y Coed Country House

A woodland haven near the North Wales coast 

This nineteenth-century gentleman’s residence is surrounded by an acre of landscaped gardens in the beautiful Conwy Valley, with far-reaching views to the magnificent Carneddau Mountains. It's conveniently close to Conwy and the coast and a stones throw from Snowdonia's countless adventures, but the lodge itself is a calm and peaceful place: there's no mobile reception, and only the wifi intrudes on what is a beautiful rural retreat.

There are seven guest bedrooms at Tir y Coed, all ensuite, including two suites. They are all fitted with large comfortable beds, luxurious feather and down duvets and fluffy white towels. Most beds are superking though many can be configured as twins if required. All are individually furnished to the very highest standards, with interiors designed to soothe and pamper, blending period elements with the very latest modern comforts. None of the rooms are at all overlooked: you can leave your curtains open as wide as you like and only the occasional squirrel will ever be the wiser. All rooms have TVs, tea and coffee making facilities and there is, of course, superfast wifi throughout.

You're not confined to your bedroom here. There's a well-stocked bar that leads onto a glorious balcony overlooking the gardens and mountains; a perfect place for a Pimms whilst taking in the magnificent views. The garden is landscaped with a large variety of mature trees and there are plenty of sheltered places to relax in fine weather. In the winter there’s a cosy drawing room with a wood-burning stove exclusively for guests. The breakfast room, with large bay windows, is comfortable and spacious with individual tables allowing guests the chance to be as private as they like. It's a great place to enjoy the legendary Tir y Coed breakfasts, where homemade breads, free-range eggs and locally sourced ingredients are combined to give the perfect start to any day.

Your B&B Hosts

Your hosts here are Chris Oakland and Sandra Baddeley, whose career in London was as a food stylist and recipe author. These days she concentrates on maintaining a quiet and soothing atmosphere at Tir y Coed, though her inner chef comes out when house-parties persuade her to cater in the evenings: she loves to entertain. There are plenty of Ordnance Survey maps available and Chris and Sandra will be happy to advise on the best local walks, that include pilgrim trails and historic routes built by Roman legionaries in the years of occupation. One of the best walks is the shortest: the five-minute stroll to the village pub for your evening meal.


The village of Rowen is beautiful in its own right, but four miles away Conwy, is a World Heritage Town delight. The imposing Conwy Castle guards the North Wales coast, a stunning medieval fortification with glorious views over the harbour and Conwy's narrow streets. It's at the heart of a string of beaches on a gloriously unspoiled coastline. The spectacular Bodnant Gardens are four miles away from Tir y Coed, while Snowdonia national park is on it’s doorstep, with plenty of hiking and walking opportunities. Adrenalin junkies are superbly served here: an inland surf lagoon at Surf Snowdonia, and there's the world's fastest zipline at Zip World.
