  • "The Sat Nav takes you to the property before, not an issue if you read instructions."

    The property is indeed on a bend so you have to be a little careful depending on traffic, however duly arrived , first thing to greet you through the door is the smell of the toilet as the week went on with window open and door shut not really a great issue. The kitchen was light airy, well equipped except for no baking tray if you want to cook pizza, we washed up by hand didn't use the dishwasher! why would you with such a dynamic view, coffee machine (dolce gusto) a big tick, washing machine good too; back door to decking and to bins, recycling was well done, easy to follow. The lounge basic but comfortable, we didn't use the log burner although was set up to go! The T.V .limited as free view would have be nice to have smart T.V to cast too but what the hey your on Holiday. The patio doors on the other hand a potential to cause harm the right one drops as does the left but not quite so far, I think they need attention and a notice to warn people until there fixed. All the beds are rather hard initially with the front single apparently on an angle, after a few nights most of us got used to them, the shower room / toilet is adequate to keep your self clean. the fan can be a little noisy but you can override it. The stairs creak quite a bit so if your a light sleeper you will be woken, all in all it is a great repurposing of an old stable we enjoyed our holiday being central to all the places in North Wales, Anglesey, Holy Island The owners are inobtrusive which is great, but they are there if you need them Diolch yn fawr iawn

  • "Hen Stabl was a real home from home (though with a much better view!"

    ). Nice layout of rooms, comfortable, cosy and very well-equipped. A good location for exploring the region, and peaceful when you come back. Ed and Eleanor are there if needed, and have plenty of local information. If the weather's bad you could just relax and stare over to the peaks of Snowdonia, which look different according to the weather and time of day. Sometimes it's almost a shame to leave the house and go out for the day. The town of Llanrwst has most of what you need in terms of supplies, and also has eateries, but the view from the kitchen window makes cooking a very pleasurable alternative. Thanks. We would definitely like to return

  • "Great location."

    Excellent property. Everything we could possibly want. We were greeted by Ed who was a friendly chap. Both Ed and Eleanor were 100% none intrusive which we appreciated. The property is a fantastic conversion of an old stable. As a couple it was a very good choice. A home from home, very comfortable and a great base to explore the surrounding area around Llanwrst. Thanks for the welcome pack. The welsh cakes were so good ! Will and Karina

    We enjoyed the peace and quiet afforded by its rural location with fabulous views of the mountains. A very relaxing spot. It is well situated to get to the coast to the north and west and some great walks in the forest and mountains. Magnificent sunsets.

    We love the cottage with the beautiful views and the peace and quiet it gives you. The cottage is located in a great spot easy to get to the coast and have always found it warm, cosy and comfortable. Eleanor & Ed are a lovely couple, not intrusive but there for you if you need them. I would definitely recommend it for a get away from it all holiday. You don’t have to step out of the door with those magnificent views. Kath & Alan.

    Comfortable, clean, cosy and very well equipped and in a beautiful setting. Even on the very wet and windy day of our holiday we could sit in the lounge and enjoy the view from the window of the sheep in the fields and on clearer days we could see the mountains in the distance. We also enjoyed a couple of beautiful sunsets. It is well situated for visiting Snowdonia and the coast. We would love to go back again.

    Cleaning was good we had lots of cobwebs been there for a while. We also struggled to cook food as there wasn’t a lot of pans only 2 no casserole dishes etc need to stock up as when we’re away I usually take my slow cooker. Just a lack of cooking facilities but apart from that we loved it there as a family we will be going back

    Friendly owners nearby if necessary. Cottage was warm and cosy with excellent facilities. Lovely comfy lounge with fabulous views. DVD player as well and some dvds, and some kids books too. Very well equipped kitchen with a brilliant cooker and dishwasher. High chair provided which was good too. Dolce gusto coffee machine as well - wish I’d known this as I would have brought pods from home. Bedrooms were lovely and beds were comfy. Loads of cupboard space. Dressing table area with hairdryer in the master bedroom which was a nice touch. Big bathroom which was good space wise. Big shower cubicle and water was hot although not very powerful. A bath would have been useful for small children staying there and bath mats would be handy too as once you open the shower door the water drips all over the floor. Plenty of towels provided though. All in all a lovely few days away, despite Storm Dennis!! Will hopefully be returning soon. Thank you.

    The only "problem" we had was with the mattresses on the single beds, which our 80 year old bones found most uncomfortable due to feeling the springs. However, as we only needed one of these beds, we used the duvet of the other one as a mattress topper. All in all Hen Stabl was a lovely holiday home to come back to each evening and we would stay there again.

About the location


Betws-y-Coed 4 miles; Conwy 10 miles.

Llanrwst is a thriving market town which stands in the beautiful Conwy Valley, only four miles from picturesque Betws-y-Coed, known as the 'Gateway to Snowdonia' and which is North Wales's most popular inland resort. Surrounded by dense woodland and magnificent mountain country, this is a haven for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts alike. At Betws-y-Coed the River Conwy meets its three tributaries flowing from the west, and the beauty of the area is enhanced by cascading waterfalls, river pools and ancient bridges. Most famous of all are the magnificent Swallow Falls, situated where the Llugwy River hurls itself into a spectacular chasm. The village has shops, pubs, places to eat, miniature railway, a riverside golf course and the Woodland High Rope Activity Centre, and is home to The Snowdonia National Park Visitor Centre, as well as being the start of the beautiful Conwy Valley which leads to the coast and the lovely towns of Llandudno and Conwy.
