  • "Just returned from a lovely week long stay in this lovely cottage."

    Everything we needed available, couldn’t have asked for anything more. Facilities great. Janet was very welcoming and available if needed, even providing places to eat with addresses and postcodes of venues. Tried all except one and we were not disappointed. Would recommend The Toad locally, food and service excellent (ring to book as website always said no tables so we rang and no problem booking a table). Cottage is located for access to local towns and is a great place to be based for trips out and even to go walking. We took our 3 year old granddaughter and she loved watching the sheep in a morning and the birds around the cottage. Even went for a walk up the lane which she enjoyed as there were sheep and horses to see. Don’t be put off by the fact you have to drive up a narrow lane, there are places to pass and we did not encounter any problems at all. It is quite well lit in places, otherwise headlights and careful driving are all that is needed. Would absolutely love to return springtime and will definitely try to. Loved every minute of our stay.

    The road to the property is only single file with very few places to pull in and pass anyone although it was fairly quiet it did prevent us from travelling along it of an evening

  • "A great location, being a short drive into Colwyn Bay, for food aswell as the beach."

    Close to Llandudno, and with so many other places of interest within an hour's drive. The property included everything we could need, with comfy seating and beds, aswell as all the bits you might forget, such as cling film, kitchen roll etc. On an evening, we only heard the odd hoot of an owl, and it was total dark skies. It is a single track road to get to the property, but there were enough passing places on the way. It is a compact property, but ideal for a family with young children. The outside space is great for children to run about and see the sheep in the neighbouring field. Janet was incredibly helpful and friendly and a great host, and we will definitely return!

  • "Beautiful cottage in a lovely location overlooking the valley."

    Our children loved seeing the sheep roam around the cottage. Lovely sandy beach 5 minute drive away with good facilities. Janet, the owner, really looked after us during our stay and even lent the children some toys. Plenty of room for a family of four. Just a note, if you have a child who needs a cot, there isn’t much room left to put one so probably best if the children are old enough for beds. We did, however, manage to squeeze our cot in and had a very enjoyable stay. Highly recommended.

    The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped we had a lovely stay and would happily return. Sykes mentions that there is a pub within 15 mins walk, this is true but it is not the place I would recommend for families or holiday makers and think this should be removed from the summary on the web site.

    Beautiful views up the valley from the lounge window. Mrs Davies, the owner, was very pleasant and helpful. A well placed cottage for exploring this part of Wales. Plenty to see within a short distance, Great and Little Orme, Conwy RSPB reserve, Conwy Castle and plenty more we didn’t get time to see. Good reason to return.

  • "Stayed August 2020: The location of this bungalow is ideal."

    It’s On a farm up a single track road away from any main roads/traffic noise and a 5 minute drive to an expansive sandy beach . It’s easy to get to the Snowdonia National park by car too. We took our bikes and the owner allowed us to store them in one of her barns. The bungalow itself was immaculately clean, with plenty of space for 2 adults and 2 teenagers. Bedding and towels were provided. Cooking facilities were good, with plenty of kitchen equipment. There is a washing machine and washing line in the adjacent garden area which has a garden table for eating outside with views overlooking mountains. The owner lives in the house opposite and is on hand if you have any queries/issues. The shower hose started to leak on Sunday evening and a new complete shower unit was fitted by 10am on Monday morning. I would highly recommend this bungalow for location, facilities and cleanliness.
