  • "Lovely property."

    Well equiped. Clean. Fantastic location with great views. Perfect for exploring North Wales.

  • "Fabulous stay."

    Very comfortable accommodation in a delightful part of Wales. The views are spectacular with amazing views. We know this area quite well but have never actually stayed here before. The village is very pretty with picnic tables by the river. We had a really nice meal in the Black Lion and a delicious breakfast in Olivia's cafe, both well recommended. Will stay here again in a heartbeat.

  • "Our second stay at Cwm Heulog and very enjoyable."

    Spacious bungalow with a lovely view from the conservatory. Two quibbles - firstly the matress of the double bed is quite uncomfortable and needs updating. Secondly there are only four seats in the conservatory. This was the room we used the most and either involved two people sitting on the window ledge or bringing in the wooden chairs from the kitchen. We still very much enjoyed our stay and exploring the general area.

    Great location for the many delights of N Wales. The bungalow itself is very spacious,clean,warm& well equipped with gorgeous views over the valley,with added advantage of only being a 10minute drive to the coast. Owners live just a little further along the drive & are helpful but unobtrusive. Gill & Mike. March 24

    Whilst there was a dvd player, there didn't seem to be any dvds...we have stayed at other cottages and there has been a small selection of dvds which is helpful. WiFi was good. Our hosts were friendly and helpful. The cottage is well placed for exploring North Wales. The location is lovely and quiet on a farm. There wasn't a lot of information on staying at the cottage, for instance details on recycling, or how to use cooker...we did figure these things out but some written information on the basics would help. The double bedrooms could use a vanity mirror, I'm quite petite and I couldn't see in the bathroom mirrors as they were small and quite high up, a mirror would be useful for drying hair etc. The cottage is very spacious and with lovely views. We did enjoy our stay and would return if we wanted to visit this area again.

    The bungalow was spacious and excellent for the gran children to run around. The conservatory was loverly to sit in with a coffee and take in the incredible views of the field and hills. Megan and her family were really friendly and helpful, showing the children the farm and animals and explaining how they farmed. The location was great for Snowdonia and the beaches of Colwyn bay an Llandudno. Would certainly look to go back again.

    The house is comfortable, spacious and warm, and the sun room is a real bonus. The main road down to the village is busy and has no path, but you can walk through the fields instead, along the river. Although the location is rural, it's very handy for Abergele, and access to the rest of the North Wales coast. The best of both worlds. Just one small thing that someone else also mentioned, a visitors' guide would be useful. We'd definitely stay there again.

The property

Cwm heulog is a delightful, detached bungalow set on a working sheep farm, just off the main road that runs between Abergele and Llanrwst.

Enjoying a rural location, the property benefits from picturesque views down the valley and towards the River Elwy, encompassing local farms and cattle in all directions.

Surrounded by countryside walks and an idyllic atmosphere, and within a mile of two pubs and a Post Office/general store in the village centre as well as a café serving local delicacies, you can enjoy a varied getaway with friends or family.

Make yourself at home in the sitting room where you can relax and unwind upon the leather sofas as you catch up on your favourite TV shows, keeping warm from the heat of the woodburning stove.

Move into the country style kitchen/diner and utilise the range of appliances on offer, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge and even a dishwasher so washing up will be a breeze!

Dine at the dining table or head into the warm and welcoming conservatory as you admire the far-reaching valley views.

As the evening comes to an end, retire to one of the three bedrooms with crisp white bed linen and neutral tones, comprising of; two double bedrooms, one with en-suite facilities and a twin room which is ideal for younger guests.

Kick start your mornings with a refreshing shower in the bathroom, before popping on your walking boots and waterproofs to tackle the surrounding fells.

Benefitting from the owner’s fishing rights, guests are welcome to cast their rods into the River Elwy in the hope of catching some trout or salmon.

The bustling town of Abergele is within easy reach and offers a wonderful stretch of sandy beach, perfect for sunbathing, swimming and water sport activities, along with the impressive Gwrych Castle, which featured on 2020's series of I'm a celebrity...

Get me out of here!, where you can brush up on local history.

For a family day out, head to Llandudno and stroll along the famous promenade whilst the aroma of fish and chips sparks your hunger, before browsing the concessions of Wales’ longest pier and enjoying a tramway up the Great Orme.

Those feeling adventurous should take a scenic drive to Snowdonia National Park, which can be reached within 30 minutes, to hike the formidable Mount Snowdon, Wales' highest peak, which offers breath-taking views and a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

For even more fun, travel further afield to Colwyn Bay, where you'll find attractions like the Welsh Mountain Zoo, a theatre, and a variety of historical landmarks; there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

At the end of day, return to the comfort of Cwm heulog and recharge your batteries for the next adventure.

Abergele 5.1 miles; Llandudno 17 miles; Bangor 32.2 miles

This small Welsh village is situated on the River Elwy, some five miles from the beautiful North Wales coastline and playing host to a few handy amenities, including a Post Office and two pubs. The seaside town of Abergele is within easy reach and is renowned for the impressive Gwrych Castle, which overlooks the town, along with its enormous sandy beach. Choose to ride the coastal cycle path, which runs along the Abergele seafront, while the Offa's Dyke pathway, the Clwydian Hill Range and Betws-y-Coed are all close by. The Victorian town of Llandudno makes a superb day out, with its two waterfronts, abundant shops, pubs and restaurants, and its two headlands, the Great Orme and the Little Orme. Stroll along the golden sand at the North Shore, or find the quieter West Shore more to your liking, with its sublime views towards Anglesey. Venue Cymru offers plenty of nighttime entertainment, with opera, ballet, musicals, comedy and visiting orchestras, all just a stone's throw from the promenade. Colwyn Bay has the Welsh Mountain Zoo, Eirias Park, a leisure centre, and many more shops, pubs and restaurants. You have so much to pass the time, for a real holiday experience to remember.
