Tŷ Hyll - The Ugly House

Eating Out

Shrouded in mystery, Ty Hyll (the Ugly House) is some 3 miles west of Betws-y-Coed, on the A5 towards Capel Curig.Its origins allegedly go back to 1475, when two brothers built themselves a hideaway in the Snowdonia forest and carving the date over the fireplace. Today the house is in the ownership of local charity the Snowdonia Society, and run as a visitor centre and cosy cottage tearoom. Visitors can enjoy home baked local produce and also learn about the legends of the house and the local environment, particularly the honeybees and wildlife garden that give the tearoom its name.and beyond.
