  • "This is our second stay at Marlin Cottage, Conwy."

    The cottage is beautifully furnished and equipped with everything (central heating, washing machine, dishwasher etc.) that could be needed for a visit. The decking area at the rear of the cottage is perfect to sit with a glass on an evening. The cottage is located close to Conwy Castle and local amenities, with many places of interest nearby. The owner Liz is very helpful with information about the area, and her "welcome trays" have local delicacies. This cottage deserves its 5 star rating and we hope to visit again in the future. Thanks Liz.

    It was cosy and homely and spotlessly clean. We met Liz the owner and she gave us information where to eat and where to go during our stay. She had thought of everything in the cottage even down to a “bits and pieces” tray containing blue tack, sellotape, sewing kit etc. The smart TV also had Netflix so you can catch up with any programmes you want, amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to friends. Thank you Liz for your hospitality and love you have put into the the cottage.

    The cottage is cosy, beautifully furnished and fully equipped. The owner, Liz, provides a well stocked "welcome tray" for arrivals and there is an information pack about the house containing details of places to visit in the area. Conwy itself is very picturesque and, despite the weather, my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the cottage. The best recommendation that we can give is that we hope to return to Marlin Cottage next year.

    The owner provided lots of little extras to make the stay even better. The cottage is really well situated just a 5 minute walk from the town centre. The only slight criticism is that parking can get difficult on the street but there is a public car park just a short walk away, which we used twice in the week. We had a wonderful week in Conwy which is a lovely place in itself but also perfectly situated to explore both the coast and Snowdonia!

The cottage is on a really quiet road but only 5 mins walk down to the lovely town of Conwy which has lots to see and lots of lovely cafes, restaurants and bakeries. You park on the road and I was worried about not getting a spot after we had been out but we went out 5 days and always got parked up fine. A fantastic cottage and made for a fantastic holiday. Amazing.

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 Eryri National Park (Snowdonia), 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.
