  • "Very nice property at the end of a single lane bumpy track, a nice size for the 4 of us - was missing a couple of bits in the kitchen but we bought some kitchen tongs and pizza trays as gifts to the house."

    Excellent location to reach the surrounding area but be far enough out not to be disturbed by anything (apart from maybe the chickens or the sheep!) Would definitely return another time :o)

  • "Recently stayed at Pensychnant cottage and found it had everything required to make the stay a very pleasant experience - comfortable with lots of storage and a good kitchen, etc."

    However, the main selling point must be the location. Just a short walking distance from some lovely countryside (Conwy Mountain and the northern area of the Carneddau, etc). It's also is very quiet. just sheep, birds and rabbits for company... Saying that, Conwy is less than a ten minute drive away (lots of pubs and a Spar (with a Amazon Locker)) and a fifteen minute drive gets you to Llandudno Junction with proper big shops that sells slightly posher stuff than they sell in Spar. All in all, I would say it is a great place to stay.

  • "A lovely stay in such a peaceful place."

    The cottage had everything we needed and we managed well as a family of 3. The farm buildings mentioned by a previous reviewer are an open sided wood store and a derelict hay loft, which looked quite castley and pretty. We did not see a soul anywhere near the cottage apart from wild rabbits, sheep, a friendly chicken and so many varieties of tiny birds we started calling the window "bird TV". Only thing missing were some DVDs, books or games for the evenings. Some lovely walks from the cottage and easy reach by car to beaches etc. Would recommend Green Wood theme park and the Great Orme copper mine. Fantastic and would return.

  • "A very peaceful property located in a superb part of Wales."

    Without denigrating the property the description is guilty of misdescription by omission in that it is opposite a farm yard and barn . The pictures shown suggest it is isolated sand no mention is made of them.

  • "This was our fourth visit to Pensychnant Cottage, the cottage has benefitted from new windows, a new shower and new dishwasher since our last visit."

    The cottage is well equipped and comfortable, it is a very peaceful place despite being only a few minutes drive from Conwy and within easy reach of all of the attractions of North Wales. The track from the main road had also been improved, however this did deteriorate a little during the course of our stay due to the number of vehicles using it. There was a Spring Fair and other events at the Conservation centre over the week and this would account for the extra traffic. Overall we enjoyed our stay at the cottage and will no doubt be back again in the future.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage."

    We appreciated the 'welcome' tray. Conveniently close to Conway, it is in a lovely rural and peaceful setting with sheep right outside the kitchen window. We also met Julian who runs the nature reserve and had a wealth of knowledge about the site. The cottage itself was really nice spacious and bright with good sized rooms. The garden would have been nice to sit out in but we were unlucky with the weather which meant we didnt get the chance. My only negatives would be that the bathroom is a bit in need of a refresh and that the cottage listed a games room. Which there wasn't.

    We were even lucky enough to meet the ponies on Conwy Mountain. We had hot weather so were thankful for shady areas in the gardens. The front garden has the most sun for those that enjoy it. The cottage was well-equipped and we really appreciated the welcome pack that greeted us on arrival - thank you. The info pack sent by email was very useful. The warden at the conservation center was very helpful and knowledgeable. We miss being there and hope to return.

  • "This was our third year back."

    The cottage was still as welcoming as ever. Conwy is just a short 5 minute drive away where there are plenty of shops and places to eat (restrictions due to covid but most shops are open and cafe doing takeaway) The cottage gives you a tranquil place to escape to yet you are in easy reach of Conwy and llandudno. With Wales being different in relation to Covid restrictions we had already planned ahead and booked to visit Bodnant Gardens and the Welsh Mountain Zoo. I would recommend both places. The rest of the week we filled with beaches and walking on conwy mountain. Most castles will be opening from the 3rd of August but again you need to plan ahead as you would visiting anywhere at the moment as many sites require booking. We will be returning again next year as there are still so many places to explore within easy reach of the cottage. We recommend the cottege and conwy.

    I know it does state that there is no broadband but in today's market I think that bookings may be affected by no internet connection. We were house hunting and the lack of internet was very frustrating. Also, the road or track leading to the property is in terrible condition with several quite large pot holes. We were actually worried that our car might get damaged and it wouldn't take too much to sort out the pot holes.

A delightful, detached cottage, located in rural Welsh countryside on the Sychnant Pass, between Capelulo and Conwy.

Set in picturesque countryside, this peaceful cottage is set away from the crowds in some of the best scenery in North Wales, and ideal haven for families and friends.

The sitting room is bright and airy and invites you to settle down, perhaps with a good book or choose a DVD from the selection on offer.

About the location


  • Penmaenmawr 1.5 miles
  • Conwy 2.5 miles
  • Llandudno 10 miles

Capelulo is a small village on the North Wales coast between Penmaenmawr and Conwy. The village is in an elevated position with both mountain and sea views and is home to a pub and an Austrian restaurant. Set on the side of the Tal-Y-Fan mountain, Capelulo enjoys stunning views across Conwy Bay to Llandudno, Anglesey and the Irish Sea, and if you are lucky, dolphins can sometimes been see playing in the bay. Capelulo is just a couple of miles from Penmaenmawr, an old quarrying town now adapted into a delightful community stretching along this stunning coastline, yet retaining much of its Victorian architecture, with many local pubs, restaurants and shops, a superb golf course and golden, sandy beaches. A recently opened cycle path leads along the coastal path to Conwy Marina to the East, and Llanfairfechan to the west. Or, head up the Conwy valley through the Sychnant Pass on to the mountain trails that abound there. The sailing club in Penmaenmawr is well established and welcomes day guests, as does the 9 hole golf course, set amongst stunning coastal scenery on the lower slopes of the village. On the promenade you will find numerous activities such as a skate park, bowling green and all weather tennis courts as well as a beach café in the summer.
