  • “The only small negative was us not being made aware of the access road from the A470 being closed.”


    Our daughter lives in Sheffield, so came to the access road from the opposite direction to us, she then spent some time driving around, lost. Also mobile reception was poor, so it took some time for me to find her, this was made worse by the torrential rain. May I suggest that the Y Granar sign at the entrance to the track leading to the house be made more prominent so as to be seen from the lane. Negatives aside, we all really enjoyed our stay, loved the house, location and views, allowing us all to relax with room to spread out, and with plenty of good dog walks.

The property

Y Granar is a spacious three bedroom family cottage situated in Maenan, North Wales (3.7 miles from Llanrwst town).

The cottage has been modernised and extended, whilst retaining features of its former life as an old, farm barn.

Sitting above the Conwy valley, Y Granar offers all the benefits of its secluded rural location, whilst being within easy reach of a wide range of activities.

These include the towns and beaches of the North Wales coast, the mountains of Snowdonia and a host of adrenalin adventures, such as the fastest zipline in the world and Surf Snowdonia.

With stunning views across the Conwy Valley to the Carneddau mountains in the West, and the rolling upland farmland to the East, Y Granar also offers a great place to relax and enjoy car free days.

There are a number of interesting walks from the cottage, including one to the public National Trust footpath with viewpoint Cadair Ifan Goch (ideal for family and dog walks).

This viewpoint is two miles from the cottage and can be reached by taking a stroll along a quiet country lane and woodland.

During August 2019, the National Eisteddfod will be visiting the nearby town of Llanrwst.

Held during the first week of August every year, the National Eisteddfod is a celebration of the culture and language of Wales.

Y Granar is a lovely detached cottage sitting above the picturesque Conwy Valley in Maenan, Wales.

Stepping through the front door, you are immediately greeted to spacious rooms, with a light decor that gives off a real home-from-home vibe.

The large sitting room has a wall given over to windows and French doors, which showcase the most magnificent views across the surrounding farmland.

There is a large flat screen TV, with Freeview and internet connection so you can keep up to date with all your favourite shows during your stay.

The large sofas are perfect for curling up and relaxing after a long day sightseeing.

Adjacent to the lounge is the spacious dining room with seating for six people.

A lovely place to sit and plan the day's events or enjoy a home-cooked meal.The open-plan kitchen offers a second dining area with seating for six, ideal for breakfast time and sunset meals looking out across the Carneddau Mountains.

There is another set of French Doors opening out on to the outside seating area from the kitchen.

The kitchen has a set of contemporary white units and black granite style worktops, with all the appliances on-hand to cook up a storm for the whole family.

The first floor has three bedrooms (two double bedrooms, 1 twin bedroom, 1 cot); 1 bedroom has an adjoining en-suite shower room, ideal for a family or a group of friends looking for a countryside break.

Ideally situated for driving to the nearby walled town of Conwy, and its famous castle.

Conwy is a World Heritage Site that also offers many shops, pubs, restaurants and local cafés, as well as historical sites and buildings to explore.

Y Granar is less than nine miles from the RSPB Nature Reserve Conwy (with outdoor adventure playground) which stretches out across the estuary.

You can stroll along a boardwalk, through a reed-bed, to the sounds of reed warblers in summer and water rails in winter; starlings mass here on winter evenings before roosting in the reeds.

Then look across two lagoons, one with shallow water and the other much deeper, which attract waders and waterbirds, especially from August to March.

Y Granar is the ultimate holiday destination for a group of friends or family.

About the location


Conwy 8 miles; Llandudno 9 miles; Betws-y-Coed 12 miles.

The village of Eglwysbach is in the wonderful Conwy Valley, which is renowned for its beautiful countryside, scenic walks and the world famous Bodnant Gardens. Nearby Conwy, a World Heritage Site, is one of Britain's most unspoilt historic towns. A true medieval gem, the town is dominated by a splendid castle and completely enclosed by its well-preserved town walls - fortified with 21 towers and three gateways, the walls form an almost unbroken shield around the old town. There's plenty to enjoy in Conwy - the picturesque fishing harbour, National Trust's Aberconwy House, Britain's "smallest house" (worth an interesting, if quick, visit!) as well as the town's shops, pubs and restaurants. Close by are good beaches along the North Wales coast and excellent walking, mountain biking, canoeing, climbing and surfing in Snowdonia and the surrounding hills.
