    It feels very private but is central to all the North Wales coast offers. Set in a beautiful country lane, it's ideal for dog walking, and comes with a secure garden. The lodge is warm and cosy and ideal for a winter break. Hopefully back next year.

  • "Pabo Lodge was situated at the end of a narrow road, and when I arrived, I thought it would be difficult to reverse into the road from the cottage's car space each time you left the cottage."

    However it was quite easy, but would not recommend parking on the road as occasional large vehicles use the road. The cottage was accurately described - very private and very quiet which is appreciated when you want peace and quiet after a long day out visiting places etc. There was plenty of hot water and the bath and shower worked brilliantly where a lot of other places I have visited lack in this area. The kitchen was spacious and had everything you needed. The beds were very comfortable and the bed linen was clean and fresh. There are extra electric heaters if you need them, and plenty of hanging space for clothes including drawers. The owner, Mark Duncalf was very pleasant to speak with on the telephone and told me not to hesitate to contact him at anytime during my stay. I will definitely come back to stay at Pabo Lodge next year as everything was comfortable and easy to get around. Mark's information folder was very useful and correct. For example, the Queens Head Pub was amazing, not only the food but the service, and decor including.

  • "When we turned off the rather inauspicious roundabout at Llandudno Junction onto Pabo Lane and passed a "Jewson's Warehouse" we were not expecting that the road would take us on into some glorious countryside with lovely views (the view of floodlit Conwy Castle from above the Lodge was especially memorable)."

    We really liked that the Lodge's garden was enclosed and offered security to our Border Terrier, Millie. Also, whilst the Lodge felt remote, it was very handy for some excellent local Pubs, Tea Rooms and Fish & Chip Shops. Given the time of year, we were able to visit some amazing gardens when they were at their best (Bodnant, Plas Cadnant, Plas Brondanw, Plas Tan-Y-Bwelch to name but a few). Whilst there were quite a lot of tourists about we found that visiting attractions first thing or later in the afternoon really payed off. We also actually found an amazing beach on Anglesey that stretched for miles and yet was completely deserted even though the weather was hot and sunny - bliss. A really great holiday all round.

  • "This was by far and away the most peaceful and relaxing holiday we have ever had, and was just what we needed to unwind from the stresses of daily working life!"

    The cottage is lovely, very well presented, and perfectly situated for walks with our dog away from busy roads. It was very nice of the owners to have left tasty treats and flowers for our arrival too. Pabo Lodge had a very homely feel to it, and we felt comfortable and not 'on pins' as can sometimes be the case when staying in more modern properties with a minimalist style of decor and lots of hard, shiny surfaces which tend to show up the slightest fingerprint, and carpets which are difficult to get muddy paw prints out of.... Pabo very sensibly has easy clean floors throughout, except for the carpet in the bedrooms as one might expect from a comfort point of view. However, while having this character feel to it, the property is still very well maintained and clean - we have absolutely no complaints on either score. One never knows just how much to take to rental cottages in terms of household consumables (i.e. light cleaning materials, towels, bedding, condiments, washing up liquid, etc.), and we consequently took pretty much everything with us that we could think of, but we needn't have bothered because the owners had anticipated our needs and provided everything. The absence of wifi might be of concern to some, but we didn't mind as the whole point of the holiday was to get away from our 'normal' lives. All in all, this was the perfect, traditional little hideaway, secure outside for the dog to run about and generally for us to indulge in a little escapism and dream that it was ours! If planning another holiday in the area in future summers, we will certainly check with Sykes to see if Pabo Lodge is available. Just as a point of note regarding booking, the rider that dogs should not be allowed on the beds or settees was not available to see until the booking had actually been made, and it might be helpful for dog owners to be made aware of this in the general listing. We never go anywhere without bags of throws and additional blankets, as although our little furry friend is happy to sleep next to beds, it is well beyond the scope of our efforts to make him understand that he has to break the habit of a lifetime and not sit on the sofa, but others might not have the space in their vehicles to do likewise.

The property

Llandudno 3.5 miles. An attractive 19th century, stone-built, Grade II listed cottage situated in a quiet hamlet on the outskirts of Llandudno Junction, just 3.5 miles from the Victorian seaside town of Llandudno.

Originally the gate lodge to the Pabo Estate, this delightful cottage has been lovingly decorated and furnished in a traditional cottage style, boasting exposed oak floors and a lovely woodburning stove in the living room, all creating a charming, cosy atmosphere.

The pretty garden offers beautiful countryside views, perfect for relaxing and dining alfresco, whilst the surrounding area is a paradise for climbers, walkers, cyclists, birdwatchers and water sports enthusiasts alike.

Visit Victorian Llandudno with its two lovely beaches, long promenade, dry ski slope, excellent shops, pubs and restaurants, or explore medieval Conwy, with its magnificent castle, splendid town walks, picturesque harbour, marina and golf course.

An ideal location for a relaxing break at any time of the year.

About the location


Conwy 4 miles, Colwyn Bay 6 miles, Snowdonia 20 miles.

Llandudno lies between two headlands, the Great Orme and the Little Orme and it is these headlands, and the town's two waterfronts, that give this tourist resort its special appeal. The town offers two superb beaches - the North Shore, with its wide promenade backed by an imposing crescent of Victorian hotels and the quieter West Shore with miles of sandy shoreline backed by sand dunes and superb views towards Anglesey. For the best views, however, you can reach the summit of the 679ft Great Orme using either the Great Orme Tramway or by taking an exciting cable car ride of over a mile. The town has an excellent selection of shops, pubs, restaurants and cafés, as well as Venue Cymru, which is North Wales' premier theatrical stage for opera, ballet, musicals, comedy and visiting orchestras, boasting a programme that is second to none - all this is just a stone's throw from the promenade. Just 4 miles away is the town of Conwy - a designated World Heritage Site. A true medieval gem, Conwy is dominated by a splendid castle and completely enclosed by its well-preserved town walls. Discover miles of sandy beaches along the North Wales coast and excellent walking and climbing in the Snowdonia National Park just 20 minutes' drive away - there's plenty to see and do!
