  • "Beautiful cottage in a lovely quiet lane."

    The garden is verdant and lush and a great place to sit and read. Location is fab, being less than 10 minutes drive from Conwy. The owner popped over to say hello but then left us alone for the week. The beds are super comfy and the showers are to die for. It's a bit of a squeeze to sit 6 adults around the kitchen table to eat bit we managed it. The small kitchen has everything you may need.

    Your lovely feedback is very much appreciated. It was a pleasure to host you and your family. Property Owner

  • "Had a great stay."

    The owners were really friendly and helpful. The accommodation itself was brilliant - tastefully decorated, bedrooms were huge, two brilliant bathrooms, lovely and spacious whilst keeping a cosy cottage feeling. We didn’t get to use the garden as much as we would have liked due to the time of year but this was also fantastic. The location of the cottage is incredible. 10 mins from Conwy, 20 mins from Llandudno and Betws-Y-Coed and easy access to all of Snowdonia’s attractions. We’ve done a fair few of these cottages all around the country and this cottage was certainly up there amongst the best we’ve stayed in. Can’t recommend it enough and I’m sure we’ll be back soon.
