  • "Lovely house very quirky, spotless it had everything we required, in a great location was a great holiday, hopefully we will return again."

  • "The bin collection days should be made clear as there was a lot of bin bags piled on top of a full bin on arrival."

  • "You did absolutely nothing towards the holiday apart from automated emails."

    The hosting company for the house were very responsive. The house was expensive and yet it was very cheaply filled, The beds were awful, really cheap mattresses that you could feel the springs through. It was damp in all the bedrooms and there were damp patches on the ceilings, Each night going to bed the bedding felt damp and cold. Sykes need to inspect their properties because if you are going to charge double the going rate for the same property you need to provide a service.

  • "Beautiful house great roof terrace with a 5min walk to the beach!"

    Our little Yorkshire Terrier Yoda loved it great walks and not far from Llandudno and Conwy. Pub about 20min walk not many takeaways. Check in / out times could be clearer Skykes said 3pm notes said 4pm then email said 5pm - check out on Sykes 10am (way to early) check out notes onsite said 9AM!!

    Only drawback was living space is upstairs and the dog we have struggles with stairs. Limited views so realy only suitable as a base. If you like walking there are a lot of scenic walks available. Overall a pleasant house and would recommed.

    Owner stayed in contact the whole time. Lovely quiet estate, decking furniture is so comfortable, and in the sun all day. We had most meals outside. Would recommend, if you want a relaxing quiet holiday, and a lot Close by, we didn’t have to travel far at all. I would definitely return.

  • "We loved our holiday cottage, in fact it made our holiday, exploring the quirky boathouse when we got there was so exciting, but throughout the holiday going back there after a day out was like going home, relaxing in the cottage was one of the highlights, we work such long hours sometimes chilling and doing nothing on holiday is just so underrated and the cottage was just so good for this, so well equipped like a home from home."

    The little touches like the quality bed linen and the roof terrace with comfy furniture and BBQ were appreciated. The £20 pound hold deposit scheme is a god send, I’m already looking for next years holiday through Sykes ! ☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️

  • "It's a nice house, but there were a few issues with our stay."

    The double bed we slept in was comfortable, but I noticed a very small stain on the throw. The wi-fi signal downstairs is so poor that you have to take your mobile, etc., upstairs to use the Internet. It's also worth noting that there isn't a bath, just a shower. Furthermore, the electric hob in the kitchen was not in a good state and there weren't any oven gloves. The big disappointment was, though, the lack of live TV and I couldn't stream any TV downstairs due to the poor wi-fi signal, when I used my computer. It wouldn't have been so much of a problem in the Summer due to the long daylight-hours; but in the Winter, when the attractions close at 4pm and the shops in Conwy at 5pm, this is a real problem. To avoid getting bored in the evening and dining in a silent house, we made sure we visited some pubs in and around Snowdonia. We would have also to have like to be met by the owners. The fact that we had to call the owner's mobile to know how to collect the keys (from a key-safe, it turned out) and that there was no meet and greet, gave us the impression that they didn't care about us at all.

  • "The location midway between Conway and Llandudno was great, you could walk along the coast to either."

    The choice of restaurants in Deganwy itself was great, especially the French one, Paysanne. The property itself was lovely, very quirky and comfortable, we loved the galley porthole and watching the amazing sunsets through it. The outside deck was really nice too as we had some lovely weather whilst there, even though it was late October. We had family coming from three different locations so had three cars but parking was not a problem. We would happily recommend this property, especially to dog owners as the beach and coastal path is a dogs paradise.

The property

This fabulous, upside down link-detached cottage is located within a private estate, with views towards the Great Orme, and is set in the village of Deganwy, just two miles from Llandudno and Conwy.

The cottage makes a perfect base for friends and families to gather and enjoy time together, and explore the beautiful coastline of North Wales.

Nicely furnished and comfy, with a lovely homely feel throughout, this cottage is spacious and offers three good-size bedrooms on the ground floor, together with a well-appointed family bathroom and additional WC.

The living accommodation on the first floor has comfy seating for everyone and is a splendid, sociable space with a high-vaulted ceiling and exposed beams, plus dual aspect windows framing views of the garden towards the Great Orme and the West Shore.

There is also a dining area with a captain’s table and sliding patio doors leading out onto the decked roof terrace.

With further seating outside and beautiful views, it is a wonderful place for alfresco entertaining or a spot to simply relax and soak up the sunshine with a refreshing drink, served from your very own bar!

From the sitting room a spiral staircase leads up to a mezzanine snug, where you can escape to for a bit of quiet time with a good book!

With lots of memorabilia on display, there is a definite maritime theme running through the cottage.

There’s even a ship’s wheel and porthole with a sea view from the galley kitchen!

The gardens, predominately to the front of this lovely coastal cottage, are well tended to and lawned with deep beds and borders planted with an abundance of mature shrubs, small trees and plants.

An external spiral staircase leads up to the roof terrace, which provides more private outdoor space.

The covered car port and block-paved driveway provide plenty of parking, and an external utility room provides secure storage for bikes and golf clubs.

From the doorstep is a lovely walk across the golf course to the sandy West Shore Beach, where you can follow one of the many walks, varying in lengths, up to and around the Great Orme summit.

If your holiday is more about taking it easy, you can take the Great Orme Tramway or cable car, and enjoy some of the most spectacular views of this beautiful coastline.

Llandudno, with its Victorian pier and promenade, and Conwy’s medieval castle and attractive harbour are only two miles away and well-worth a visit.

The Snowdonia National Park, Llyn Peninsula and the wonderful Isle of Anglesey are all within easy reach too, offering endless opportunities for exciting days out.

In a great location, this cottage provides an ideal for a holiday discovering North Wales, all year long.

About the location


Conwy 2 miles; Llandudno 3.5 miles.

The town of Deganwy, on the banks of the River Conwy at the mouth of the Estuary, is a very popular holiday destination. Deganwy has a marina, a small selection of shops, pubs and restaurants, and retains the ruins of Deganwy Castle, built in 1082 but later demolished. There is an abundance of activities to suit all interests on offer in this area; from sea fishing, walking and climbing in the Snowdonia range to enjoying the castles, mines, beaches and gardens of this beautiful stretch of the North Wales Coast. Deganwy is only a few miles from the holiday resorts of Conwy and Llandudno; Conwy boasts a medieval castle, town walls and a marina, plus winding streets which offer something for shoppers and diners alike. Llandudno was very popular during the Victorian era, and this is evident in the architecture and the very impressive promenade. The town also has a pier with family attractions, a theatre and for the more adventurous, a dry ski slope! Between Deganwy, Llandudno and Conwy, this area has so much to offer the entire family.
