  • “Parking is quite tight.”

    The lane the cottage is in quite narrow access in and out of the property is a bit awkward.

The property

Old Colwyn 1.8 miles.

Enjoying an elevated position within the countryside of North Wales, is the quaint cottage, Cartref Melus.

This heart-warming retreat comes within striking distance of the glorious coastline, the popular towns of Llandudno and Conwy, as well as the majestic Snowdonia National Park, making the perfect base for a traditional Welsh family holiday.

After an action-packed afternoon, be welcomed into the L-shaped kitchen/diner, where you will be delighted by the refreshing colour palette which compliments the exposed beam and the traditional woodburning stove.

The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you could possibly need to cater your own delicious meals that can be enjoyed at the dining table, where you can plan the days ahead with your loved ones.

After dinner, choose to unwind within the sitting room, which boasts a real sense of home with its additional woodburning stove and plush sofas.

Alternatively, spend your wind down time within the conservatory, where you can catch the final glimpses of sunshine and soak up the surrounding views with a deserved glass of wine in hand.

The interior is completed by the two spacious bedrooms, comprising of a super-king-size double bedroom and a twin bedroom, each benefitting from ample space and storage for a week-long break.

To the outside of the property, spend a moment or two within the terrace-style garden, where you can look forward to making use of the pizza oven before dining alfresco.

Venture up the steps to be greeted by a large lawn area, where you will find an endearing water feature and a summer house to enjoy the views further.

If you can tear yourself away from this delightful space, venture to the towns of Old Colwyn and Colwyn Bay, where you will be spoilt for choice by the selection of amenities that await you, housing something to suit all tastes and requirements.

If you are visiting with younger guests, they will be delighted by the famous Welsh Mountain Zoo and the long sweep of sandy beach located nearby.

Alternatively, spend an afternoon at the town of Llandudno where you will find a quirky pier and two further beaches, or venture to the historic town of Conwy with its 13th Century castle and town walls.

Cartref Melus is an outstanding base for a refreshing family holiday.
