    • “A real gem!”

    • “What a GREAT place to stay. We were here for a week and after being greeted by the owner Sylivia, we were pretty much left alone to enjoy our peaceful break in the Conwy Valley. The cottage was located some way behind the owner's property and had amazing views across the valley. There was adequate space inside the cottage and a very welcome outdoor area in the form of an elevated decking complete with sun-loungers. There was even a bit of a porch area where you could sit out and watch the wildlife (binoculars provided). This is a fantastic place to use as a base if you're wanting to explore everything that North Wales has to offer and within a few minutes drive, you get to see all the best attractions. We had a fabulous time and would DEFINITELY want to go back. Our ONE AND ONLY whinge was the couch was very uncomfortable. Everything else was fantastic. You even get a good, strong wi-fi connection for the internet, a DVD player and TV. Closest attraction is Bodnant Gardens - a MUST SEE!!!”

    • “Quiet, Peaceful and totally relaxing”

    • “Although in the "back" garden this cabin has a beautiful view over the fields filled with sheep and hills and by no means overlooked at all. Lovely decking to sit on and enjoy the sun, lap up the peace and watch the small wild animals and small wooded walks. We had a 2 week stay in June and enjoyed every minute of it going back again in Sept and will do so again next year. The cabin is lovely and has everything you need and is fully kitted out. I would mostly certainly recommend this cabin as a "getaway" from the ratrace.”

    • “We loved every minute of this holiday, it was in a perfect location for exploring North Wales. Nestled in the Conwy Valley with excellent views, peace and quiet and yet only minutes away from all that North Wales has to offer. The owners were truly lovely people who kept their distance but were there if we needed them. Bluebell cottage was a real gem!”
