  • "Lovely house that was home from home."

    Beautiful scenery and brilliant base for sightseeing in Snowdonia, Anglesey and Llandudno and surrounding areas. So much to see and do. Very dog friendly beach close by in easy walking distance. The house is comfortable and very warm on sunny says which we were blessed with. Nice touch that there are plastic reusable plates and cups to use for picnics. Big fridge/freezer and plenty of cupboard space. Nice tiled porch area for walking boots. Owner contactable for queries .

  • "Really loved the property and location."

    The only thing that needed looking at is the hot tap in the bathroom comes away in your hand. You can push it back so it can be used but should be fixed, many thanks.

  • "We’re just on our way home from staying for a week at Bwythn Carregwen and what an amazing week it’s been!"

    This property is so lovely and home like, we didn’t want to leave! The beds are so comfy, shower is AMAZING and we just loved everything. It was perfect for my two daughters (4 & 1years) and our dog! The surrounding mountains and views from upstairs are beautiful. The village is friendly and the pub (fairy glen) down the road is fab! So many nice walks from the house. We walked to the beach a few times and there’s a little play park not to far either! The owner Michelle is so lovely and only a message away if you need to ask anything which was great! - thank you so much again Michelle . We can’t wait to stay again!

  • "This cottage is set in a beautiful , quiet location with stunning views of the mountains and valley."

    It was a perfect base for us to explore the multitude of walks both up in the hills as well as along the coast. The cottage itself is lovely, well appointed and comfortable, with everything we needed to relax and enjoy our holiday. The amazing views were the the icing on the cake. We can't recommend it enough. For a walking holiday with our dog, it was perfect

  • "It’s not often you get accommodation that is as good as the photos, but on this occasion we got exactly that."

    The location was stunning as far as we were concerned and the cottage was beautiful. If wouldn’t suit everyone, I.e. if you didn’t have transport, but excellent if you have transport, saying that, the pub was only 1 mile down the hill, and walkers would love the location of the house. Great for any any combination of families or friends. Amenities in the cottage, it had everything we needed, even to cook a full Sunday roast. Could perhaps do with a clothes airier indoors, in case your not able to put washing outside. Host Michelle was easy to contact and help if you have any questions. Would highly recommend and would definitely go there again.

  • "Enjoyed a great week at this well-appointed property with modern styling that nods to the past."

    The reverse layout makes the most of the fabulous view from large raked window in the living area and there's plenty of room to chill out. Great location with easy access to the coast, and the walking trails that crisscross the Sychnant Pass are on the doorstep. A tip for other guests - the central heating is quite effective but remember, the heat rises and the reverse layout means it can get quite warm upstairs in the living area - adjust the radiator thermostats accordingly. Another tip is, if the oven (it's a lovely range) has been powered off, you'll not be able to do much until you've set the clock! This took me a while to figure out and it was only some time later that I found a manual for the range in a kitchen drawer (page 9 revealed the answer). I'd suggest this information is included in the welcome file along with a more detailed description of how to actually turn the central heating on, rather than the brief mention in the file that it's either on, manual or auto. We had the restful week in the peace and quiet of the country that we were looking for and we'd definitely return.

    Overall we found the cottage to be very comfortable, clean and well equipped. The only comment we would make is that a couple of Flat Oven Trays would have come in very useful, as we stayed during Covid 19 restrictions; Pubs, Restaurants etc, were closed therefore we needed to use the Cooker/ovens more often than had planned. We would definitely stay again, what a beautiful place!!

  • "Cottage in lovely surroundings."

    Good size kitchen if you prefer to cook your own meals but lots of places to eat within a short drive away. Could do with a second tv in one of bedrooms as this property is for 6 people if weather is very bad in winter evenings it means children can watch their own programms. Could also do with a few board games we went into conwy & bought dominoes cards & other games to play in the very stormy evenings. The short piece of roadway leading to cottage is in a very bad state of repair , huge holes could damage car & risk of people falling on very uneven ground . Having said that we had a lovely weeks stay . the people are very friendly ,lots of places to visit, first visit to Wales & loved every minute.

    The views from this upside down home was fantastic and great walks on your doorstep. It’s very hard to find any negatives the road/track although it was short had become bumpy due to the rain the previous week washing it away and our dog doesn’t like laminate/wooden floors so we had to lay towels in the passage for him which was quite funny. First class accommodation in a first class area for exploring North Wales great beaches also. Neighbours are also very pleasant.

    Beautiful area/views. Cottage exceeded our expectations. Well equipped and a good standard of cleanliness (although could do with a bit of vacuum behind the side tables/drawer units as hand came back covered in cobwebs when retrieving something which rolled behind them) but all in all very happy with our stay. Complimentary bottle of wine from the owner was a lovely touch. Would definitely recommend the cottage to others. Booking with Sykes was very easy. Information in booking and confirmation emails provided very good and the recommendation score would have been higher if hadn't been for the bombardment of daily advertising emails trying to get me to book more holidays before I'd even been on this one!!

The property

Bwthyn Carregwen is a lovely detached cottage situated in Dwygyfylchi, Wales.

The property has a reverse-level accommodation style, with three bedrooms: Two doubles, one twin and a family shower room on the ground floor, with the twin bedroom boasting wonderful country views and featuring a range of modern furnishings to store all your personal items.

Throughout the home, the colours are attractive, welcoming and very much in the modern-contemporary style, with plenty of character with the exposed oak beams and wooden flooring throughout, except for the bedrooms which all have carpet.

The first floor is home to an open-plan living space, with a welcoming sitting room with two sofas and a warming woodburning stove to keep you warm during those chilly evenings - take advantage of the provided TV and keep up to date with all your favourite shows.

The kitchen is amply-equipped, with white units and sleek black granite worktops, housing a range of modern appliances.

The property has two garden areas, one front enclosed lawn and patio area, and a rear raised level patio area with furniture and a dog kennel, so you can enjoy a relaxing evening outside and let your pet off its lead to enjoy the enclosed space.

You are ideally situated for exploring the incredible limestone headland, the Great Orme, which offers an expansive countryside area with nature trails and magnificent views across the countryside and sea.

With easy access to the Conwy Morfa Beach, with golden sands and clear waters, making it a lovely attraction for family days out, you can even bring your pet along and let them run around.

Bwthyn Carregwen is the place to be for those who enjoy the secluded countryside.

About the location


Penmaenmawr 1.5 miles; Conwy 3.5 miles.

Dwygyfylchi is situated on the stunning North Wales coast between Penmaenmawr and Conwy. It looks out across to the Irish Sea, Conwy Bay, Anglesey and the Great Orme off Llandudno, where dolphins can sometimes be seen swimming in the distance. On a clear day, the Isle of Man can be visible. It is nestled at the foot of Moel Lys mountain, which offers many beautiful walks and vistas. A recently opened cycling track enables you to ride along the coast eastwards towards Conwy and beyond, or westwards towards Llanfairfechan. Located by the beach at Penmaenmawr is a Sailing Club and there is also the Penmaenmawr Golf Club; visitors are welcome at both. On the other end of the beach to the Sailing Club is a promenade area offering skate boarding, a children’s playpark, bowling green, promenade cafe and all-weather tennis courts, as well as some of the safest swimming in the area on a long sandy beach. Alternatively, you can drive (or walk) up the Sychnant Pass, from where there are many walking trails leading off. Further on, you can drive up through the beautiful Conwy Valley alongside the River Conwy. On the way to the Sychnant Pass you go through the charming village of Capelulo, where there are a couple of restaurants. This is a lovely area which provides a fantastic base for your holiday in North Wales
