  • "The black bin was not big enough for a 6 day stay."

    The lack of a jug, chopping board, culinder, and potatoe peeler was a bit of a blow while.cooking. this has been the worst for equipment in the kitchen. But having said that it is in a great location clean. Massive comfortable bed would go back again but take a few little things for cooking

    Very small cottage and sofa was extremely small and not very comfortable. Bed was comfy and great for stay in Conwy as within the walls.

  • "We loved our stay in this cottage and couldn’t believe we were within the castle walls!"

    A lovely unique little place, very clean and comfy. The only downside is that you can’t use the little back garden (mainly our dog, Ruby) but with so much coastline on your doorstep is really not a problem. Thank you for an enjoyable stay.

    It was super clean. The furnishings were all well kept. Everything was in perfect working order. The nicest touch was the milk, bread and Welsh cakes waiting for us when we arrived. We would certainly recommend this cottage.

  • "We were impressed with the way this very small cottage had been equipped."

    However one matter somewhat spoiled the stay for us. On about the second day the toilet seat broke. We noticed it was very loose and there was considerable overhang at times. Although we reported this to the owner nothing was done before we left and it was very uncomfortable to use meanwhile. I would have thought the owner would have given this priority.

    The location is excellent and the owner first class in his generosity and support. It is a little small but we knew that before we went and since everything was designed to fit the space we could not fault it. A privilege to stay there.

  • "The cottage was everything as described on the web site, spotlessly clean and fully equipped but the location was better than we imagined."

    The description said inside the walls of the town but it can not explain what it feels like to stay inside the walls of Conwy. Yes driving and parking can be quite a challenge due to the narrow streets, but the ambience of living in a world heritage site was amazing.

  • "Beautiful clean cottage set in the heart of the town."

    Parking right outside the front door. The cottage is finished to a very high standard and has been well thought out - the bed is huge! There was a welcome pack including bread and milk which was a nice gesture. The town is quaint and there is lots to do from walking around the castle walls, a stroll around the harbour and there are beautiful beaches just a 15 minutes drive away. We will certainly be returning. Would highly recommend.

  • "Perfectly kitted out bijou holiday cottage for two folks plus dog - within the walls of Conwy - all places of interest within walking distance - we didn't move the car for the first half of our break."

    From the quayside to Sandy Shell is up a steep gradient - other wise many of the walks we undertook were on the 'flat' - over the bridge to Deganwy - around the coast to Conwy Beach - sadly a walk to Dyffryn Conwy was curtailed as the Riverside path entered RSPB land and dogs / bikes were not permitted. Parking outside was a minor issue - if you have a large car you may impinge on a neighbours frontage that are guarded by benches / wheely bins when they are out at work - also manoeuvring a larger car within the confines of the back streets and the Erskine Terrace cul de sac may be found to be difficult. Would happily return - overall we had a nice break there.

  • "Ideal location close to shops and pubs."

    A comfy bed and modern bathroom. Plenty of space for clothes in the bedroom. The cottage is on a side road with parking in front of the cottage. Plenty of pubs serving food nearby. The nearest pub is 2 minutes walk and I would recommend the chippy opposite the pub for fish and chips. I would return to this cottage and visit Conwy again.

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.
