  • "The amount of flies was overwhelming."

    The house itself was super. We were 3 adults but I could see a family with children really enjoying it. The mattresses on the beds were not very comfortable

    It has unbelievably good views across the sea, the Denbighshire hills and Snowdonia and is in a very peaceful spot. The owner was very responsive when small problems arose.

    It’s hard to find somewhere that accommodates our large family but Pen Bryn Llan was perfect for us. Would definitely return. Fantastic views. The play barn was loved by us all and our youngest is 14! We didn’t want to leave. Cannot recommend highly enough.

  • "We loved the location and the facilities- a very special place."

    Some parts of the property looking a bit tired (showers/bathrooms) and for the price we paid (over £750) for 2 nights I didn’t think that was acceptable. I notice the price has dropped now and I am disappointed the reduction was not passed on.

    Plenty of places to visit with young children in the local area; Welsh Mountain Zoo, Colwyn Bay and Denbigh Castle. Also within reach of Betws-y-Coed which has beautiful walks (and pram friendly). The play barn was really useful to exhaust the children of any left over energy. The owners installed stair gates at the top and bottom of the stairs ahead of our arrival which was greatly appreciated and essential with a 16 month old toddler.

  • "Just wow! We stayed at Pen Bryn Llan for my Mum's 60th Birthday weekend and what a weekend we had - the views at this place are absolutely incredible!"

    It was simply the perfect weekend away for all of the family - it slept 7 adults and 2 children very comfortably and all of the bedrooms are lovely and have fabulous views. It's perfectly equipped with everything you need and the whole place was just spotless. My 2 boys just loved the play barn, trampoline and the added bonus was having sheep, lambs and pigs right on our doorstep. They loved feeding the pigs with our left over fruit and veg. The cottage is fairly remote but this is what makes it so special as you can just literally switch off and forget about everything - you relax as soon as you walk in the front door. There are plenty of places to explore only a short drive away or there are some lovely walks to enjoy from the local village. We took a day trip to Betws-y-coed which we all enjoyed. The terrace is lovely - we had a lovely sunny weekend but the wind was a bit chilly but you really don't need to be outside to appreciate the stunning views - even when sat inside you feel as those you are outside. I can't recommend this place highly enough and when we have our next family gathering I will certainly be looking to book again!

  • "A beautiful house with stunning views in every direction."

    The lounge and bedrooms are light, spacious and very comfortable. Definitely the most used room though was the huge dining/sitting conservatory at the back of the house. The views are remarkable and it’s a great room for large group dining. Unfortunately, it wasn’t quite warm enough to make use of the large decked area though it would be an excellent outdoor space in better weather. The games barn is huge and was well used but wrap up warm in winter months! The house is up a long track and there are no shops or pubs within close walking distance so make sure to stock up well or be prepared to drive out for dining.

Having stayed in many cottages in the UK, this one is my favourite.

The property

A stylish, contemporary, farmhouse, next to the owner's home, on their smallholding, on the outskirts of Llannefydd village, in an elevated location above the Dolwen Reservoir, on the Denbighshire/Conwy border.

This detached, delightful cottage offers quality accommodation and breathtaking views as soon as you enter into the double height, summer room, which soaks up the country views across the valley.

Opening into a modern kitchen with a breakfast area, you will find everything you need to enjoy a sociable meal with friends and family whilst taking in the undisturbed panoramic views.

A second reception room provides a cosy area to sit and read or watch TV.

The addition of a ground floor bedroom, enjoying the use of a wet room next door, making it suitable for the less able guest, if required.

Upstairs you will find two king-size bedrooms, one with en-suite facilities, the other a Juliet balcony, and a triple bedroom, again ideal for children, all enjoying some of the best views available in North Wales.

The half-mile track to the farmhouse, though un-adopted, is in good condition and level and worth the walk back into the village to enjoy the hospitality at the 17th century coaching inn and restaurant, perhaps after a walk down to the reservoir to enjoy a spot of fishing first.

If that doesn’t give you enough to do, then a ½ acre meadow outside the cottage provides all the space children may need to play Frisbee or perhaps fly a kite.

The popular seaside town of Abergele is a short drive away and opens up to miles of sandy beaches and coastal walks along the Welsh coastline.

Alternatively, visit the market town of Denbigh or the newly-appointed city of St Asaph, both just 15 minutes’ drive away.

The area is renowned for its stunning scenery and country walks, and will have you returning to this luxury cottage time and time again.

About the location


Denbigh 5 miles; Abergele 9 miles; Rhyl 10 miles; Prestatyn 13 miles.

Only 7 miles from the lovely North Wales coast lies the rural village of Llannefydd, located between the historic town of St Asaph, with its impressive cathedral, Rhuddlan with its majestic castle, and Abergele with its fabulous sandy beaches. The pleasant, nearby seaside town of Abergele stands on the North Wales coastline and is ideally positioned between the stunning Vale of Clwyd and the Conwy Valley. Renowned for the impressive Gwych Castle which overlooks the town, and its enormous sandy beach, the whole area offers safe bathing waters and excellent watersports facilities, as well as a coastal cycle path which runs along the Abergele seafront, whilst for walking enthusiasts the Offa's Dyke Pathway, the Clwydian Hill Range and beautiful Betws-y-Coed known as the Gateway to Snowdonia are all nearby. The castles of Rhuddlan, Conwy, Denbigh and Caernarfon are not to be missed and the delightful Victorian town of Llandudno, offering quality shops, restaurants, a dry ski slope and exciting cable car rides over the Great Orme, is within easy driving distance. Both the Brenig and Alwen reservoirs offer stunning scenery and walking opportunities and are within 10 miles of the village. Plenty to do at any time of the year!
