  • "The Wren is situated in a beautiful location with stunning views."

    The hot tub is very impressive. Lying in the autumn sun looking over the hills was so relaxing. Lovely walks and seaside close by to explore. Only down side for us was lack of cleaning materials. No basic materials, just a dustpan and brush, which we thought was odd!! Also we had no access to heating so couldn't manage this ourselves. We got cold at times!!

  • "Excellent property in a perfect setting."

    Very well equipped with everything needed for a relaxing few days. Peaceful, wildlife,nature, walks literally from the doorstep. This place has everything and more with the hot tub set in amongst the landscape and even a roll top bath with a view in the bedroom. Plenty to see and do or not do. We loved our stay here. Steve and Sue the owners were wonderful hosts on hand when needed with loads of local knowledge or just a friendly chat. Positives loads. Negatives none.

  • "Myself and my partner recently stayed at The Wren for 5 days, 5 days just wasn't enough!"

    It's a home from home, although we preferred it at The Wren and did not want to leave. the property itself is outstanding, beautifully presented, clean, cosy and very well equipped, a lot bigger then the photos show, it really does contain EVERYTHING you could ever need, the owners have put a lot of love and thought into this property and it really does show. The surrounding area the property is situated on is beautiful, a lot wildlife, grassy meadow area's, short/long walks, amazing scenery and not another person/car in site, but a 10 minute drive down the hill behind the property you arrive at the beach! The owners are lovely, they recommend afew things for us to see and do, it was like they knew us with how perfect every recommendation turned out to be! They are so welcoming, friendly, chatty and their hosting is exceptional, you won't see them all to often as they are busy working around the farm but they are always just a phone call away if you should need them. All in all it's defiantly a place I would recommend, we can't wait to return to The Wren.

  • "Great property very clean and the location was amazing."

    Owners very nice. Just a couple of things. Extra towels needed - I asked and got 2 extra hand towels and 1 bath towel. Usually with a hot tub separate towels are provided but we didn’t have these here. Not a lot of cutlery. Also mattress on bed not great. I’m being picky but get these right and it would be perfect. Again lovely location and hot tub fab.

    The host are nearby if you need anything but still is a very secluded private area just for yourself. Perfect if u want to shut off into ur own bubble. Will definitely be back in the summer and climb some of the local mountains, beautiful cottage beautiful location. The hot tub was amazing even in the cold, panoramic open views across the valley. The bath was amazing, big enough for 2 people. Dressing gowns were a nice touch. The home made short bread was the best I’ve ever tasted, such a nice unexpected treat! Left feeling so relaxed !!! Cottage was so clean upon arrival, for someone who inspects every detail this is a 5* from me Ps - please get a new guest book, we wanted to leave a lovely note but we couldn’t because it was so full!

Llysfaen 0.9 miles.

Nestled on the outskirts of the traditional North Wales village of Llysfaen, found just a short drive from the breath-taking coastline is The Wren.

This annexe-style accommodation is perfect for couples seeking a snug getaway to the area, where there is plenty of things to see and do.

Soak up the far-reaching views over the Welsh mountains and towards the sea before heading up the steps and into the contemporary holiday home.

Be welcomed into the open-plan living space, a light filled room, boasting plush furnishings and a refreshing colour palette to ensure a wonderful space for you and your loved one to return to each evening.

The kitchen area is equipped for you and your partner to cook up a storm before settling down at the breakfast bar to tuck in and toast to a romantic getaway.

During a winter’s evening, flick on the electric fire and sink into the L-shape sofa, choose to tune into the TV or plan the next day’s adventure.

Tucked behind the sofa is a plush king-size bed, complete with a spacious wardrobe to store your belongings and a freestanding bath, if you fancy an indulgent soak one evening before bed.

Continuing to impress is the outdoor area, complete with a balcony where the views can be admired with a cup of tea in the morning, alternatively, head to the patio area and dip into the bubbling hot tub to gaze up at the stars come evening.

Concluding the outdoor area is ample off-road parking and storage space for bikes and other outdoor equipment.

Take a short drive into the village, where you will find a shop for picking up the essentials, as well as a brewery and a takeaway.

Further amenities can be found in the town of Colwyn Bay, as well as a number of attractions including the Welsh Mountain Zoo, Bodnant Gardens or walk along the promenade where you will find opportunities for fishing, sailing, and jet skiing.

Continue along the coastline to visit the seaside resort of Llandudno, home to two beaches and a 1902 tramway, which travel to the summit of the Great Orme.

Close by is the walled market town of Conwy, where you can visit the medieval castle, stroll along the castle walls or meander the many, quaint shops.

For those feeling more adventurous, head to the Snowdonia National Park to climb the highest mountain in England and Wales, or for thrill seekers, there is Zip World Forest to explore.

Or for a beautiful amble walk some of the North Wales path, partially coastal, this path has some breath taking views looking of the Irish Sea.

The Wren offers a wonderful retreat that will see you returning, year-after-year.
