  • "Lovely house in a quiet area."

    Close to Conwy, Llandudno, Bodnant Gardens etc. House is very comfortable with parking directly outside

  • "We initially had difficulties finding the property due to the picture being very out if date!"

    ! The house was ideal for our requirements. However, as we are all in our 70's we found some of the furniture a little uncomfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped. The beds were comfortable and all bed linen well laundered. The bath had a shower over and I personally found it difficult to get in and out of. Again there were plenty of towels provided, all well laundered. The second toilet downstairs was a bonus. Sadly the views from thelounge and small decked area were obscured by overgrown shrubbery. The property could probably benefit from a coat if paint inside. Ideal for 2 people, snug for 3 and would have been a squeeze for 4 particularly in the small dining kitchen. Great parking facilities right outside the property. We were a party of 3 reasonably fit and active seniors.

  • "Great cottage, lovely and clean and everything that you need for a weeks stay."

    We were a little apprehensive about the fact that there was no fence on the pictures of the front garden. We have 2 small boys, since the pictures there is a fence with a gate and there is no chance for any children to accidentally get away. We would have not thought twice about booking if we had known and were really pleased that the fence had been put there. We will definitely be back in the future, no hesitation we had a great week. Thank you.

  • "Honestly the cleanliness of the property was incredible."

    It was lovely and clean, thank you. We loved the little sun trap at the back. Local residents / neighbours were friendly and welcoming. A short but sweet stay :)

  • "Lovely cottage with a homely feel."

    Just a few maintenance items to point out. The extractor fan in the bathroom did not work. The plug in the bathroom sink did not work. Some of the batteries in the remote controls had leaked and need replacing. A light bulb in the kitchen did not work. None of these things detracted from a lovely stay, we would definitely book this cottage again if returning to the area.

  • "We enjoyed our stay very much."

    The accommodation was spotlessly clean, quiet, warm and comfortable. I also like the fact that pets aren’t allowed in the property. We would definitely go back there if we holidaying in that part of North Wales.

  • "This holiday cottage was in the ideal location for our planned touring of the snowdonia national park."

    It is very well facilitated, spotlessly clean on arrival, and equally important it was easily accessible.We felt that a very nice gesture of the owners was the leaving of basic groceries ie milk, bread,eggs,and teabags.The tiled bathroom floor does require some attention which we are sure the owners will be aware of but in our opinion does not detract from the overall quality of this holiday cottage,infact we would have no hesitation in highly recommending this cottage to anyone seeking to visit the snowdonia area of Wales.

  • "Fantastic location to discover the surrounding area, our second time at Ty Gwydyr in Dolgarrog which is comfortable and well equipped."

    There is lots to see and do in the area we went to new places, would recommend the walk to Aber Falls, and a visit to National Trusts Penrhyn Castle. Looking forward to re-booking for a week next year as there is lots more to discover.

  • "We had significant problems finding the property as there were no distances given and the critical road name (Taylor Avenue) was not actually visible until one was significantly along it!"

    ! So everything was guesswork.

  • "Kitchen table is too small to seat 4 adults."

    we put the table in the living room, that was better. Beds were very comfortable. Frying pan is old and worn, needs replacing with a new one , my omelette stuck to the pan! We would have liked to have a coffee percolator of some kind ! We had a great time! loved the house, we shall repeat one day! :)

  • "Great location to explore the surrounding area, many of the main attractions are no more than 1 hour away."

    First time in North Wales will definitely go back much more to explore. Take time when in Dolgarrog to visit the memorial park. The local shop is not very well stocked you will need to go to Llandudno Junction for a large Tesco, recommend also a visit the Welsh Food centre for many local products....Breakfast Sausages are good

  • "I stayed here with my son and we could not have been more happy with our choice."

    The property was immaculately clean and has been kept to a high standard. It is convenient for touring North Wales and is located in a quite village. To us one of the draws was no pets and no smoking so there were no lingering smells from previous occupants. The property is furnished to a high standard with three TV,s though we never used them all as the weather was better than we expected so we were out most of the time. There are some good eateries within a ten minute drive either way one of which you can walk in twenty minutes. The food stock on arrival was a surprise and much appreciated and whilst we didn't need it Central Heating for a cold night would be a bonus. The bed rooms are a good size and both have plenty of natural light there is a veranda for outside eating. The amenities that come with the property will make you feel as if you have come from your own home This is a property I would recommend to anyone who asked and I have no doubt that people would be happy with my recommendation.

    The position is ideal for exploring all North Wales. Provision in the property is second to none - even laundry products! The garden is now fenced which lends itself to having a little privacy when sitting outdoors. A personal welcome from the owner is great for asking any immediate questions.
