  • "This is our second time we stayed at this property."

    Previously at Christmas in 2018 and now in early summer 2022. Both visits were unique and outstanding at different times of the year. The host is perfect providing a very clean and very well equipped accommodation. The area is extremely beautiful and very rural which adds to the charm. If you desire peace and tranquilly in a rural unspoilt area then look no further. Perfect getaway, thanks again.

    Thank you for your lovely comments, flowers and for leaving the cabin so clean! It was a pleasure to see you again, the perfect guests! Property Owner

    Thank you so much for your kind feedback and we are so glad you enjoyed your visit. Thank you also for leaving the cabin clean and tidy, we hope to welcome you again. Property Owner

  • "We loved our short break at Y Cabin."

    It was superbly maintained and ideally placed for walking. The climbs are steep but you can find complete silence up the mountain. There is a lovely and remote church to visit. The heating was more than adequate, the water was always warm and we liked the owners' philosophy about recycling and providing heating and water in an eco friendly manner. The approach road is challenging and the turning into the parking area is tight. I found the gate heavy to lift. Take stout walking boots and enjoy the sound of the babbling brook nearby.

    The road upto it was dreadful very narrow and to actually parking your vehicle was very bad. Narrow gate off narrow road. Getting in and out very difficult. Could do with WiFi but plenty of books DVDs in the cabin. Only complaint for inside the cabin. Oven was very dirty.

  • "The pictures really do not do this lovely cabin justice."

    Nestled in woodland surrounded by bubbling streams and waterfalls, it felt like we had arrived in a fairy glen. The cabin is very comfortable and one of the nicest we have stayed in. We loved sitting on the stones and paddling our feet in the stream after a day out. Well placed to visit Conwy and surrounding area. We walked up the hill from the cabin, it is very steep but there are some amazing views. We had a lovely stay and would highly recommend.

  • "The cabin is a beautiful idyll set in a peaceful hillside with running streams close by to lull you to a peaceful rest."

    The facilities are exceptional and you want for nothing. The photos do nothing to reflect the beauty of the surroundings and The Cabin is exactly as in the pictures. The concerns for the current climate are addressed and I felt safe in the environment. There are welcome essentials with long life milk and a lovely bottle of Prosecco left by the hosts who are near enough to help if needed but leave you to make yourself at home. The location is great for a base to visit local sites and there is plenty to do. I had a wonderful break with my daughter and will definitely be returning. Thank you

    They were fully met. The directions to get to the cottage were a little confusing: a "yellow grit container" is mentioned, but there are 2 along the road (the second one being the mentioned one), could be worth saying this to help guests find the location.

    As winter approaches, maybe it would benefit people to have some heating in the living area. But other than that, I can't fault the place, the owners were quick to assist and help with the problem we had with the electric heater we had. It was a wonderful place and we will definitely be going back... V. Ainsworth.

  • "Y Caban is a lovely cabin surrounded by trees with a stream flowing by."

    It is very comfortable although a bit out of the way, accessible by very narrow and steep country lanes. There are walks from the cabin but all are steep although the views make the effort worthwhile. The local lanes are like a maze and we would have been lost without our vehicles good mapping system. The coast and woodland walks are within easy reach by car though so the cabin is a reasonable base although it did lack WiFi and a distant view from the cabin which is blocked by trees. Good holiday though in a great area.

    On arrival we were greeted with wine and fudge sweets left for us on the table. Made to feel very welcome. The Y Caban (the cabin) was warm, cosy, clean and very well equipped. Our wonderful host Mrs Moore had decorated the cabin with a Christmas tree and lights inside and outside. The location is beautiful with water falls and stream on three sides, idyllic. There are many very picturesque attractions only 10-15 minutes’ drive away even in winter. The road leading to the cabin is tight and winding, that you get used to, just adds to the attraction. If you enjoy peace and quite and love country life then this place is very highly recommended. Will certainly be returning.

We had everything we needed including a lovely host. Conwy itself is just brimming with things to do and the beach, which is 15 minutes away is fab. We spent a lot of time in the lovely town too. We didn't manage to do everything, which is good because it means we get to go back. Loved it!

  • "This is a beautiful cabin, we loved staying here."

    It's a lovely quiet setting with the sound of the stream passing by. The cabin is very well equipped indeed, with everything you could need. We were particularly impressed with ecological aspects, and attention to detail. We did find the narrow and hilly roads, whilst very picturesque, a bit scary in case of meeting the occasional vehicle coming in the opposite direction, but we didn't actually experience any problems. Sadly the lanes were a bit too hilly for walking for our elderly knees, although one of us did walk some way up after turning left out of the cabin drive and was rewarded with fantastic views and scenery. We had a lovely welcome package so could get a cup of tea on arrival and were treated to a delightful floral posy which lasted the whole week. We tried approaching it initially from the south trying to avoid Conwy, but that was a mistake and we'd recommend head for Conwy first and then follow the instructions, apart from the final sign for the Old Church, (and the recent absence of the phone box didn't help) where you need to turn right instead of left. The heatwave and constant sunshine was a real bonus, if a bit of a trial at times, but if we'd had rain and not wanted to go out there was plenty to do "at home". We'd recommend this heartily. as a great place to explore the area, which has much to offer.

About the location


Llandudno 5 miles; Betws-y-Coed 16 miles.

Conwy, a World Heritage Site, is without doubt world famous for its historical and architectural heritage, yet at the heart of the town lies a hub of bustling activity. Alongside its ancient festivals and fairs, musical recitals, galleries and historical attractions, there is an array of specialist shops, restaurants and hotels. Built for King Edward I between 1283 and 1287, Master James of St George's design, Conwy Castle remains one of the most outstanding achievements of medieval military architecture. The distinctive, elongated shape, with its two barbicans, eight massive towers and a great bow-shaped hall was perhaps determined by the narrow rocky outcrop on which the castle stands. The town is proud of its historic traditions and celebrates its past by retaining many of these in its annual festivals, events and fairs, including the Honey fair, Seed fair and Gwledd Conwy Feast in October, along with other musical events throughout the year. Conwy is the perfect base for exploring the dramatic Snowdonia National Park, walking unspoilt sandy beaches, or taking in the wonderful scenery on your doorstep. Also within reach are the Llechwedd Slate Caverns, which has the longest zip wire in Europe, and Surf Snowdonia is just six miles away.
