  • "What a fantastic cottage, so clean and spacious."

    Arrived with four of our friends with fresh flowers and a home made lemon cake waiting for us. Cottage has everything to accommodate 8 adults. Unfortunately on this occasion we didn't sit in the private garden, this would be a lovely place to sit out in the summer months, nearest thing to your own private beer garden. A couple of days out, easy drive to Llandudno and Anglesey for a walk on the quiet beech with stunning views to the Snowdonia mountain range. Went to The Old Stag just over the road for our Saturday evening meal, food was great and the staff were so friendly. We are definitely coming back next summer. I would strongly recommend this cottage.

    There's a small well stocked shop opposite, and a pub across the road that does evening meals. We will definitely be booking again.

  • "A very well equipped and comfortable cottage which has everything you need for a relaxing stay."

    Location is a bit remote but it is central for visiting the North Wales coast, Snowdonia with lots to see. There is also a pub, serving food, and a shop within 50m. Despite it being on the main road traffic noise was not an issue.

    Spotlessly clean and met all of our needs. Ideally situated for touring North Wales. The welcome pack was a great addition. Thank you.

  • "We stayed in this cottage 2 years ago so knew what to expect this time when we returned."

    And we were looking forward to it very much because this cottage is spacious (for 2 families) and beautifully furnished. It has a lovely big family kitchen/diner area which works really well, and with 5 kids the enclosed garden is really good. We like the location too, set in beautiful countryside. Although I guess it’s still at least 45 minutes to all the places we visited. Our only negative about the cottage is the noise - the main bedroom above the kitchen/diner seems to have very thin floors so you can hear voices and noice from below.

  • "We visited Llys Alaw for 4 nights as a group of uni friends."

    It was the perfect base for exploring Snowdonia: we hiked Snowdon, visited Conwy Castle and travelled to Anglesey for a beach day. The cottage itself is immaculately presented, with gorgeous interior design. The 3 bathrooms made it perfect for a big group when we were all trying to get ready at the same time. Lastly, we can highly recommend The Old Stag pub opposite - we ate there 2 nights.

  • "The cottage was brilliant and everything was to a high standard."

    There was nothing else we could of required. The only problem was and for us, and it was a large one.. as the garden itself is across a small access road, we could not let the children play in it alone .. the cottage is situated on a busy road junction.. and the football kept going over the fence and the children were running out after it.. children’s ages 5,2,11. Was very stressful .. ideally could do with gates at the end of the access road. That was the only problem for us, if you don’t have small children it would be fine. But it was an amazing place to stay and would highly recommend it.

    The bedrooms are all sizeable with very comfortable beds and a nice en-suite for one room. The property is in a perfect position with a local shop/Post Office immediately across the road and a country pub with good dining within 30 yards. The property is well positioned as a holiday base in North Wales giving easy access to Snowdonia as well as the coast including Anglesey.

    The attention to detail and presentation is by far the best we have come across. The owners have lovingly restored this property and from walking in through the door you feel like it’s a home and not just somewhere to stay.

I can not recommend this property enough and will definitely be re booking as it’s situated in an ideal location to explore the beautiful surroundings.

  • "We were two families of 4 who based ourselves in the lovely Llys Alaw cottage for 4 days of adventure in Snowdonia."

    When we arrived we found the cottage very clean and welcoming - everything was provided for us including towels and dishwasher tablets, right down to electric candles and spare batteries. The decor was really nice and fresh and we loved eating together around that giant table in the kitchen area. The cottage has been refurbished to a high standard and it just worked really well. We will definitely come back here for future holidays. The village location is good for access to different parts of snowdonia, and the cottage location in the village itself is prime. It's literally 10 seconds walk to the local pub which served really nice food. The provision of 2 private parking spaces, a private garden, and a private courtyard with lockable shed for our bikes was really practical for our needs. I really recommend this cottage and wish the owners all the best.. They were so kind as to leave some treats for our arrival - a really nice and personal touch.

    Lots of thoughtful touches to ensure we could make the very best of the weekend. The location was lovely with a pub and shop just over the road and we accessed lots by car although did not really explore what was on our doorstep. Would definitely recommend and look to stay again a truely beautiful property that has been refurbished to a lovely standard.

  • "I have stayed in many holiday cottages in the past but this has got to be the best yet."

    The property is ideally situated, close to Colwyn Bay and the North Wales coast but also within reach of the Snowdonia National Park and the Llyn Peninsula. The immediate surroundings are very quaint; the tiny village is made up of a few houses, a pub (serving good, reasonably priced food) and a small shop/post office. The cottage itself is beautifully renovated with incredible attention to detail. I have never stayed anywhere that has been so well resourced: there is an abundance of crockery, cutlery, glassware; every pot, pan, dish, jug, utensil you could need as well as the little essentials that are often forgotten e.g. matches, dishwasher tablets, washing-up liquid, tea towels etc. The open plan kitchen/dining/lounge area is a great place to relax in with it's huge log burner fire place. We never actually used the separate lounge as we found this room so comfortable. The bedrooms are all spacious, light and beautifully furnished and decorated with very comfortable beds. The bathroom, en-suite and wet room are all immaculate with modern showers and tiling - beautifully finished! We were very fortunate to have excellent weather for our 3 day stay and made good use of the lovely garden. There is plenty of outdoor seating and a large BBQ as well as plenty of grass for the children to play on. Finally, I must also give the extremely generous welcome pack a mention - quite incredible and much enjoyed!
