  • "We had a lovely weekend stay at dove cottage."

    It was very comfortable and very well looked after. The only minor qualm is there was no soap and only got one loo roll. Some holiday accommodations have guest soaps which are handy for weekend guests. Not a big problem anyway just a heads up for future guest to take their own. The cottage is situated in a beautiful little village. It is very picturesque upon entering over the bridge and stream where one of the two local pubs is situated. The two pubs in the village are just minutes away from the cottage and are very welcoming although the pub on the bridge doesn’t allow dogs inside. The locals we met in the village are also super friendly. We had a couple of lovely nights chatting with them in the pub. All in all lovely accommodation situated in a lovely Welsh village.

  • "Very cosy cottage, in a lovely quiet friendly village, with easy access to exploring North Wales."

    Only thing i can say is, would benefit from replacing the chipped plates and side plates and bowls, otherwise a very nice stay, thank you. Diane and Len.

  • "We had a very enjoyable and comfortable holiday at Dove Cottage."

    We did have one issue, which we raised with the owners, and they were 'on it' immediately and we were extremely thankful to them. They clearly take great pride in ensuring holiday-makers enjoy the comforts of Dove Cottage.

  • "It was a lovely cottage and we enjoyed staying there."

    Couple of things, the shower door kept coming off the rails, no problem for my husband at 6ft 2 but at 5ft 2 it was a bit of a struggle for me to hitch it back on. Felt the towels provided where of poor quality, one use and they where soaked, perhaps thicker towels would be better and finally the decor in the living room was just too dull. Having a small window it would make more sense to have lighter walls, especially as the fireplace wall was brick. We had to put lights on at all times of the day. This final point is the reason why we wouldn’t come back to this cottage, which is a pity as we really did enjoy our stay and the village was lovely.

  • "A beautiful, cosy and welcoming cottage, perfectly placed for a short break exploring North Wales."

    We enjoyed coastal, countryside and mountain walks with the dog. The books in the cottage were very good. We enjoyed some of the family games too. The cottage was warm with ambient lighting, which was lovely to return to. A welcome basket with tea & coffee etc was great as were the Welsh Cakes. Washing up liquid/cloths, tea towels etc soap and lovely fluffy towels were all provided. The utility porch was great for the dog and as a boot room. The cottage had almost everything we needed - no hairdryer, bread knife, kitchen scissors, chopping board - which was unusual given the vast range cooker and excellent pans/cooking dishes etc. Super comfortable beds, made up on arrival and plenty of spare pillows - only 2 soft pillows though - the others were too firm. Plentiful hot water, although the water pressure could be a little temperamental. Logs for the stove and matches provided, although we didn’t need it as the heating was excellent. The flame effect stove was cosy. A lovely, friendly village to explore. The Black Lion pub was superb! The local bus passes right past the cottage, so easy to explore locally without taking the car. We would definitely stay longer next time!

  • "Great base for exploring North Wales, lovely cottage in a lovely village with lovely locals especially the young family who live opposite who told us a great little known walk to a beautiful hidden weir in the woods just 5 minutes away."

    The village has that ‘remote’ feel but is only 5 or so minutes away from the A55 to the North for visiting Llandudno/Conwy/Bangor etc with Betws-y-coed/Snowdonia/Zip World etc approximately 30 minutes to the South. Cottage itself has was well equipped and comfortable and my only minor criticism would be that cleaners obviously forgot to hoover when cleaning before we arrived, but that would not stop is from staying here again and would definitely recommend this cottage, we loved our stay and so did our little Yorkshire Terrier.

  • "The cottage is in a good location."

    It is tastefully decorated but being a cottage it is cosier than the photos show the 2nd bedroom is quite small which was a challenge with 2 teenagers. The main bedroom was very spacious and felt quite luxurious. Could do with some more sharp knives in the kitchen. Apparent that people had previously stayed who had dogs as there was a distinct smell in some of the rooms. Otherwise an ideal base to explore North Wales.

If you want a meal there you need to book in advance. There is a cafe on the edge of the village called Oliver’s. The cottage is lovely and cosy. It has most of the things you need.

About the location


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.
