"We had such an amazing time at this property."
Everything you could possibly think of are covered. We have already looked to book again.
"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.
"This is a beautiful cottage, with a very high standard of cleanliness."
Very homely and cosy, a lot of thought has gone into making it a lovely holiday cottage. We highly recommend it.
"The little extras on arrival made our holiday."
It was warm and cosy, milk in the fridge, fresh flowers on the table and a delicious lemon cake.
"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.
"Beautiful cottage in a wonderful location, perfect for exploring the area."
There's a small well stocked shop opposite, and a pub across the road that does evening meals. We will definitely be booking again.
"Lovely well equipped, beautifully presented and comfortable house."
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.
"The perfect holiday in the most beautiful,well equipped cottage."
Home from home, attention to detail was impeccable. Definitely will be coming back.
"An exceptional property."
Large, spacious and excellently appointed in a lovely Welsh village. Absolutely stunning! Would not hesitate to recommend.
"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.
"Cottage was fantastic."
Owners have done a wonderful job of ensuring holiday makers have everything they need. We absolutely loved our stay
"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.
"We loved staying in this cottage, it had everything you could need, the owners even left tea, coffee, sugar, butter, milk and a lemon loaf which tasted amazing!"
I would love to know who did the interior design! Cannot wait to stay here again!
"Lovely accommodation, very clean and kitchen very well appointed."
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.
"It was a lovely house, very comfortable and we had a wonderful holiday."
"Went with 3 generations."
Lovely spacious property. Nice garden for the children. Had a lovely time. Only one minor criticism, the bath towel could have been larger.
"This holiday home is perfect and very well equipped (only things really missing are hair dryers, but has everything else you could possibly need) it was very clean and tidy and we very much enjoyed our stay."
"Myself and 7 others traveled here for a New Year's getaway and we were blown away at how beautiful the property was!"
The condition of the property was immaculate and the location was great. The hosts were extremely helpful and were available to contact throughout our stay in case we had any questions. If you're looking for a nice quiet break in the Welsh countryside, this is certainly the place for you.
"Fantastic place to stay."
Property is well thought out.
All you need for a self catering holiday is an and around the property. Like home from home, but relaxing.
Excellent location with a shop and nice pub
"One of the best holiday rentals we have ever been to."
"We stayed at Llys Alaw Cottage for a long weekend, the house is a credit to the owners."
It far exceeded our expectations, it definitely has the wow factor when you walk in. The house is tastefully decorated through out , modern but with in keeping of the property. We couldn’t fault anything, it was immaculate. The fresh flowers and a homemade lemon drizzle cake which was delicious were a lovely touch from the owners. We were a family of 8, 6 adults and two children celebrating our Silver Wedding. Thanks so much xx
"We booked a stay at Llys Alaw to celebrate a special family occasion and everything about our stay was perfect."
The cleanliness, room sizes, quality of fixtures/fittings and kitchen supplies were superb. Very much a home from home feeling with everything you need and a wonderful welcome cake too! There were also games for the children, information on the local area and attractions too.
All of us cannot wait to stay here again.
"Beautiful house in a fantastic location!"
Very very tempted to declare squatters rights!
"I would just like to say what an amazing stay we had at this beautiful house."
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. Everything you could possibly need has been thoughtfully provided. 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.
Very clean, well decorated and well planned accommodation. Everything in order with a very useful folder to help navigate appliances, recycling and other aspects of cottage.
We found everything we needed in the cottage and appreciated the welcome gifts.
"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.
"Wow this cottage was beautiful and the owners had literally thought of everything."
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!
