  • "Absolutely loved this property."

    It was in a great location to car parking, shops, places to eat and drink. Everything was just a few minutes walk to reach. The house was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated with all mod cons. Would definitely recommend a visit.

    Thank you for taking the time for writing a lovely review, we’re glad you enjoyed your stay at the old sweet shop, we hope you will visit again, and thank you for recommending us. Property Owner

  • "We had a great week in The Old Sweet Shop, despite the April weather."

    We’re a family of four with a well behaved dog and loved the fact the cottage was right in the centre of Conwy. The cottage itself was clean, modern and well kept and had everything we needed. We parked at Mount Pleasant car park, just a short walk through the walls and topped up the meter every day. The town itself is full of good eateries and pubs - The Albion is just a few doors away and was a favourite of ours and we loved Dylan’s restaurant for their seafood. There are also some great local walks including Mount Conwy and Morfa Beach which can be accessed by the estuary walkway and through the marina - great at low tide for a dog walk. Further afield we drove about 30 mins to Zip World, Menai Bridge for a RIB ride and to Llechwedd slate mine and recommend them all for a day out. This was our second visit to Conwy and we’d be happy to come back to The Old Sweet Shop next time!

    Thank you for your wonderful review, we are happy you enjoyed your stay, and that you had a lovely time. Property Owner

  • "The Old Sweet Shop was brilliant, the location is great and the property is modern and luxurious."

    Only down side was the sofa but the owners are looking at replacing this. You can hear the trains go past but that didn’t bother us. We parked at Mount Pleasant Car Park and walked through the castle walls to the house. We ordered pizzas from Johnny Doughs and enjoyed cooking during our stay. We visited lots of attractions including Bodnant Gardens, Penrhyn Castle, Llandudno Pier, Zip World Betws-y-Coed and Llechwedd, Caernarfon Castle, stopped off for food at The Antelope Inn with views of the Menai Bridge and finally a walk along the Conwy castle walls, which can be accessed when you turn left out of the house and head up the road… it took us along the river and through the town which is beautiful. We drove to Angel Bay (Penrhyn bay) before we went home because we knew there would be seal pups there. It was incredible. Everyone was quiet and enjoyed the views of the bay. I would stay here again, it was great.

    Thank you for your review, we have now replaced the seating, we hope you will stay again in the future. Property Owner

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.
