    The cottage is lovely and very cosy with excellent facilities, everything that you need for your stay. The location is perfect for outdoor activities, and the host was really helpful on giving us some tips for local walks and visits. Everything was very clean and well organised. Our holiday at the Shippon was just perfect and I cannot recommend this cottage and excellent hosts enough. We really hope to come back in the future.

    This charming little cottage was very well equipped and felt remote whilst also having easy access to the local area. The Shippon proved to be a great base for day trips to Snowdonia and Anglesey, although it is well worth exploring the hills which are right on the doorstep of the Shippon! Our hosts Andrew and Sarah were very friendly and happy to give us information on the local area. We also brought two horses with us, and we couldn't have asked for better equestrian facilities! Stables with yard, tack room, paddock, all right outside the cottage! Andrew was even kind enough to lend us some equipment such as wheel barrows, buckets, spades etc to help look after the horses :) This beautiful location is really special and we will definitely be returning!

    The owners were friendly and the location perfect. We were however informed that we had paid for 7 nights by the owners who wondered why we were only staying until Tuesday. We thought we had paid for 3 nights, selecting 3 in the menu. I am dissapointed to know that Sykes charged us for the full week when it clearly stated we were to check out after 3. There should be a lower price surely for less nights and we were under the impression that this would be the case. If not it should clearly state it. The owners kindly offered us the Shippon for the full week but we had not packed for this etc. but did stay an extra night. Therefore we feel that we are out of pocket for 3 nights that we did not know we had bought.

The owners are very welcoming and are on hand to assist with any queries either regarding the cottage or the local area. Great area for walking, mountain biking, sight seeing and the beach. Dogs are very welcome with good walks from the door step. The cottage is well equipped, clean and comfortable.

  • "The location of the property was excellent - fantastic large but enclosed garden was ideal for our two dogs."

    Also very private setting. The Shippon was a very cosy and relaxing place to stay - warm and comfortable and with everything we needed for our favourite type of holiday (walks, scenery and dog friendly). We really enjoyed our stay.

About the location

CONWY

Llandudno 5 miles; Betws-y-Coed 16 miles.

Conwy, a World Heritage Site, is without doubt world famous for its historical and architectural heritage, yet at the heart of the town lies a hub of bustling activity. Alongside its ancient festivals and fairs, musical recitals, galleries and historical attractions, there is an array of specialist shops, restaurants and hotels. Built for King Edward I between 1283 and 1287, Master James of St George's design, Conwy Castle remains one of the most outstanding achievements of medieval military architecture. The distinctive, elongated shape, with its two barbicans, eight massive towers and a great bow-shaped hall was perhaps determined by the narrow rocky outcrop on which the castle stands. The town is proud of its historic traditions and celebrates its past by retaining many of these in its annual festivals, events and fairs, including the Honey fair, Seed fair and Gwledd Conwy Feast in October, along with other musical events throughout the year. Conwy is the perfect base for exploring the dramatic Snowdonia National Park, walking unspoilt sandy beaches, or taking in the wonderful scenery on your doorstep. Also within reach are the Llechwedd Slate Caverns, which has the longest zip wire in Europe, and Surf Snowdonia is just six miles away.
