  • "We had a great stay with a very warm welcome at Trem y Don."

    A good base to visit the area.

  • "We had a lovely week at Trem Y Don and fortunately the weather was good for us."

    It is a gem of a cottage, with good hosts close by but not intrusive. The welcome package was very well received by us and the hot-tub is excellent and well maintained. It is an excellent centre for visits especially if you are a Cadw and/or National Trust member. We managed Beaumaris Castle and Plas Newydd on one day. Rhyl and Rhuddlan Castle on another. Conway town and castle which are truly a delight. Bodnant Gardens and the Welsh food centre are only 15-20 minutes away and spectacular. A day in Snowdonia and visiting Penrhyn Castle were all interesting. There are so many places to go you can easily fill a week. For food the Groes Inn straight up the road [6-7 miles] is excellent been there a number of times over the years. Y Bedol is also decent.

  • "Many thanks to our hosts, Graham and Karen, for providing what felt like a home from home on our stay at Trem Y Don."

    We were fairly surprised at how large the property was, plenty of room for the two of us and Max the dog, and we all enjoyed the welcome pack kindly provided by our hosts. The location is spot on and a short drive to most of the coastal resorts around North Wales, there is even a bus stop right outside that takes you into LLandudno if that takes your fancy. The hot tub was a real welcome at the end of a busy day. Special mention to Graham for providing one of the highlights of Marija's holiday memories. If we could make one little suggestion, maybe a bigger fridge/freezer for the kitchen.

  • "The cottage and hot tub, great."

    Lovely welcome from owner and very kind loan of 2 walking sticks from owner also. Only problem was very steep, long access from parking to cottage, due to fact I am disabled. My gentle advice is to make sure this is clearer in booking description to avoid any future problems if disabled persons book what is mostly a lovely place to stay, lovely gardens, which again was not accessible to myself due to very steep access. Just add nature of steep access to description. Be perfect then. For instance wheelchair bound tenants would find access impossible. Please consider this. You are lovely people

  • "The cottage exceeded our expectations , looks better in real life than on photos ."

    The bed is a top quality mattress, it was so comfortable. The hot tub was the best money can buy , the welcome basket was so generous with extra treats for our dogs . The owner met us with great tips on things to do in the area which we followed and we had a great time . But the bonus for us having our spaniels was being able to go on an off lead walk every morning though a private wooded back garden with hammock that lead to a walk with waterfalls . Highly recommended . We loved it here

  • "Beautiful setting."

    Also a bird watchers paradise. I could have sat for hours. A lovely cosy bungalow with an open fire if required. We did on the last night. Full sky TV package too if you like your TV programmes but to be honest the hottub for us was the star of the show. After a full day out hiking and beach combing that was our delight. Very relaxed about our big hairy dog too! The house is very dog friendly too with wood floors..easier for us the keep his floof swept up. And he loved his doggy treats as much as we loved our welcome treats too! Thankyou for having us and being so helpful and kind. We found Ann's kitchen in Mochdre on the way home as suggested! You were right about the was to.die for! We hope to visit again soon. Jayne, David and Fen

    The welcome pack and thoughtful dog treat were a delightful surprise, making us feel truly at home. The extra touch of a birthday bottle of wine for our celebration was the perfect cherry on top. Your warmth and attention to detail, along with the top-class hot tub, made our experience memorable. The cottage was perfect - we had everything we needed and more. Beautiful walks from the door. Lovely local pubs and butchers on the door step. We really loved our stay. Thank you both for making it so wonderful. We already can't wait to come back!

  • "We had a great time."

    The bath hot tap went faulty but was fixed in same day whilst we were out. Used the car each day on short tours. You can take the dog a walk in the morning around the back of the house and up the fairly steep garden.

    We pride ourselves on the cottage being spotless on handover and have always received 100% reviews for cleanliness. We therefore cannot understand a 75% score for this and would appreciate knowing why you scored us so low, so if there is a problem we can remedy it. Property Owner

  • "Really delightful place, semi-detached but owners are quiet and very friendly."

    Had everything we wanted out of a holiday to chill out, and there's plenty to see and do in the area. Place is also dog friendly. The forest tracks out the back of the property provide some excellent walks too. Everything in the house was clean and tidy and the hot tub was clean and well maintained.

    Thanks for your feedback. It was a pleasure having you as guests- Jove is a really beautiful well behaved dog ! You left the cottage very clean and tidy which we appreciated, and we would love to see you staying again in future. You will no doubt appreciate that we have followed up your helpful suggestions and the cottage now has extra coat hangers in the wardrobe, a hoover for guests use and an ironing board as well as the clothes steamer.

  • "This is a lovely home to stay in and the host was very welcoming."

    The property is attached to the owners home, the location is perfect for visiting Llandudno, Betws Y Coed. The property itself benefits by way of sky TV and a smart TV to enable you to login to Netflix & Prime, it has a lovely hot tub with blue tooth and a seated area outside with a fire pit, it also has the most comfortable bed (too comfortable I didn't want to get up!). A lovely welcome pack was provided and treats for the dogs. I would recommend to friends and family we had an enjoyable stay as did our little dogs.

    What lovely feedback. We are so glad you and your furry family enjoyed your stay. We would also like to thank you for leaving the cottage so clean and tidy, and we would love to see you again anytime as you were definite 5* guests. Property Owner

Trem y Don is tucked away on the outskirts of the peaceful village of Dolgarrog, Conwy, in the heart of the Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park.

Built in 1922, this quaint, single-story annexe is the perfect romantic retreat for couples, while also being family-friendly and pet-friendly, should you want to bring along your little ones or your furry ones.

On arrival, find off-road parking and take a minute to admire your elevated position in the rural space between Dolgarrog and Trefriw, overlooking the Conwy valley.

The interior has a beautiful four-poster double bedroom and a bathroom with a bath and shower over it for when it is time to rest and refresh between fun-filled days.

The kitchen is well-equipped with all the essentials, so you can enjoy a lovely home-cooked meal, along with a handy washing machine for your laundry needs.

From here, the sitting room is the perfect place to curl up with a good book by the woodburning stove or challenge your partner to a game of table football for your evening entertainment, and there is also a doll house and other games for any children in your group.

Step outside into the garden, where you can enjoy the peaceful surroundings from the hot tub, nestled under the pagoda and perfect to soak in any time of year.

The decked area is the perfect spot for a leisurely breakfast, while furniture makes for a great place to relax in the afternoon sun with a drink of your choice!

For a peaceful nook, head to the Meditation Area, set in the forest, where you can feel at one with nature whilst lounging on the private hammock.

Finishing off the property is a shed that also provides storage for bikes and sports equipment if you’re looking to explore the picture-perfect national park.

Explore Dolgarrog, an idyllic village surrounded by gentle rolling hills and lush green meadows, ideal for leisurely strolls.

Betws-y-Coed is just a scenic drive away, a picturesque village featuring historical monuments, an array of outdoor activities, and plenty of places to shop.

Immerse yourself in the beauty of Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park, a stunning landscape of rugged mountains, forested valleys, gushing rivers, and shimmering lakes.

Let your adventurous spirit run free, with plenty of opportunities to take part in thrilling activities such as walking, cycling, rock climbing, or mountain biking.

Llanrwst 5 miles; Conwy 7.4 miles; Betws-y-Coed 7.8 miles.

The village of Dolgarrog is situated in the Conwy Valley, within the Snowdonia National Park. The village is surrounded by three rivers - the Afon Ddu, the Afon Porth-llwyd and the Conwy, and the woodlands of the Coed Dolgarrog National Nature Reserve. Adventure Parc Snowdonia is found here, which offers a whole host of adrenaline-fuelled activities both indoor and outdoor including a large man-made surf lagoon that provides a fantastic experience for beginner surfers and those with more experience. Close to Dolgarrog are lovely walks including gorge walking, which will appeal to the more adventurous, and the peaks of Drum and Tal y Fan. Both the ‘walking village’ of Trefriw and the market town of Llanrwst are nearby, plus the popular inland resort of Betws-y-Coed is just a few miles away and is well worth a visit. The North Wales coastline is within a short drive and includes Conwy, a World Heritage Site offering a castle, festivals, shops and restaurants, and Llandudno with its sandy beaches and The Great Orme. Dolgarrog is an ideal base for exploring this part of Wales.
