Living in Betws-y-Coed: The Local Area Guide

Betws-y-coed can be found in the Conwy valley of Wales adjacent to the Snowdonia National Park hosting many tourists. The name of the village comes from the Anglo-Saxon era meaning ‘a house of prayer in the wood’.

In 1868, when the railway station in Betws-y-Coed was established the village’s population expanded instantly. The station now has tourist shops and the well-known Conwy Valley Railway Museum which is famous for its model railway system. Other attractions of the village include the St Michaels church that still has some of its original structure. The Golf club founded in the 1970s and the Llyn Elsi reservoir which is extremely popular with walkers as the footpath provides access to the picturesque lake.

Demographics

The 2011 census states that Betws-y-Coed has 564 inhabitants. The average age of the Betws-y-Coed residents is 44.6 and this compared to the Welsh average of 40 is higher. 39.9% of the residents own a dwelling and 29.5% mortgage one which is significantly higher than the national average suggesting that this is a wealthy living area.

Betws-y-Coed is an educated place with 25.5% of the population gaining a level 4 qualification. This is higher than the national average of 24.5% making it a well-educated area- something important that future residents should be aware of. 45.42% of Bets-y-Coed consider their level of health to be ‘very good’ which is slightly lower than the Welsh average.

A high percentage of the residents of the Betws-y-Coed (29.23%) are within the C1 social grade meaning that this portion of the population work in supervisory professions, often with administrative aspects. However, 28.16% of the population work in semi-skilled manual labour roles or would be classed as unemployed. This suggests that there is a mix in the occupations held by the population.

Education

The primary school that most Betws-y-Coed children go to is Ysgol Betws-y-Coed. This school is proud to be Welsh and encourages students and teachers to communicate in Welsh as much as possible. The school caters to children aged three to eleven. Estyn has previously classed the school as ‘adequate’ because the school is small and only has a handful of teachers.

The nearest secondary school for Betws-y-Coed locals is Ysgol Dyffryn Conwy. According to Estyn, the current performance of the school is ‘good’ based on how well the students have progressed. This school caters for children aged 7 to 13 and is a progressive and forward thinking school that is constantly growing.

Transport

Although the village is small, because of the influx of tourists, it is well prepared with bus routes and a regular train service. The village train station has trains running throughout the day all through wales making travelling cross-country easy.

Betws-y-Coed is located at the crossing of the A5 and the A470. This is ideal for people travelling from either side of the country because both lead directly to the village. The village is also relatively near to Ferry landings with the Barmouth Ferry landing just 27.9 miles away.

Amenities and Shopping

Because the village is used to having visitors, the restaurants and other amenities are of the highest calibre. The Bistro Betws-y-Coed is a popular welsh restaurant with a 4.6-star rating. It serves traditional food and its doors are open to locals and tourists alike. There are several local shops within the village and other more well-known stores such as Londis, so you are never without a place to buy your food. There are many camping focused shops ideal for tourists looking to stay in the Snowdonia Park.

The village also has a Snowdonia Massage Therapy place, several bed and breakfasts, some bars and coffee shops as well as Dr Zig’s Extraordinary Giant Bubbles which is a family owned business that travels hosting bubble parties for all ages.
