Bryn Derw is a remote cottage in Snowdonia, North Wales. It’s two miles from the main road out of Betws-y-Coed, high up and in a beautiful open valley, getting the sun throughout the day.
Rhiwddolion was a small quarry village in the late 19th century, but is now a ‘forgotten village’. There are only five living cottages remaining, but the (very interesting) ruins of a few others are still visible. Three of these cottages now belong to the Landmark Trust. Ours and one other are privately owned.
