  • "My wife and I have spent a lovely week in this cottage, it was like home from home with all the facilities."

    Full of character and spotlessly clean. The village and surroundings were like a picture postcard. It was nice and peaceful but only minutes from all the tourist locations. I would recommend this cottage for a great holiday.

  • "Nice old cottage, plenty of room, facilities as stated."

    The place was lacking in a bit of TLC. Cobwebs every where, the windows were filthy. Outside area needed a good tidy up, not even swept of garden debris. Upstairs shower leaked water which dripped through the hallway ceiling, worried it would bring the ceiling down . Informed owners who weren't concerned as said its an old property, and knew about the problem. You should be able to feel comfortable using the facilities.

    Thank you for your feedback. Glad you were happy with the cottage and the facilities. We have addressed the additional issues you have highlighted. In respect of the leak our plumber was contacted immediately following your report and we are sorry this occurred during your stay. Property Owner

    A real home away from home feel to it. The cottage has everything you need to enjoy a comfortable time away. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to booking again in the future.

  • "Lovely quiet cottage in beautiful surroundings with everything provided for your stay."

    If you want peace and quiet this is it but not to far away by car to visit some amazing places or get on your walking shoes as the scenery is fabulous.

  • "It was a beautiful cottage and a wonderful area, just off the beaten track but not far from things to do if you need them."

    The cottage was well equipped with every thing you need, very cosy and comfortable. I also think it was a lovely touch to have a few things for our four legged friends. I'm sure I will return to Bryn Conwy.

  • "The Cottage was superb - beyond our expectations."

    It was very clean, the rooms smelt fresh and the garden was so lovely to sit in at night and listen to the birds and the rabbits sometimes made an entrance!! We cannot express how much the cottage had added to our 1 week in North Wales as not only is it so clean and comfy and homely, it is also close to all the attractions in Snowdonia. Well done to the owners David and Paula who have made our holiday certainly one we will never forget

  • "Bryn Conwy is a lovely home, well situated for exploring Snowdonia and the surrounding areas, the house was very clean, well equipped and comfortable."

    The owner emailed us the day prior to check in with update Covid procedures which gave us additional peace of mind. Our only minor gripe was that the stairs leading to the first floor are all different heights and made it difficult for my parents to get upstairs, the downstairs bathroom had a shower over the bath and they needed to access the upstairs shower room, we appreciate that the cottage is very old and these quirks are all part of staying in an older property, and the listing did say that neither bathroom had disabled access, however it would have been good to know about the potential tricky access to the first floor prior to our visit. Overall this is a lovely cottage and we would stay again, thank you for the coffee and biscuits on arrival.

    Bare in mind there’s no shops/pubs nearby but be prepared to drive a little if you intend to visit other places . Nevertheless great little bolt hole , peaceful and loved sitting by the river on the bench with a brew which literally is right next to the cottage. I’d definitely stay again in this gorgeous country cottage. Would most definitely recommend this too . Thanks Again

    Everything was clean and lots of thought had been given to taking precuations for COVID 19. The cottage was very comfortable and well equiped with everything we needed. The area is beautiful with plenty to do in the immediate area was well as in Snowdonia national park only a short drive away. I would definitely recommend this cottage to others and would stay again if we were visiting this part of Wales.

    The cottage was lovely, and its beams, thick walls and the care and attention given to make it comfortable made it perfect for us. The owners were very helpful when we contacted them about a power cut to the village due to the storms, and rang us back to make sure we were OK. There were great walks from the cottage.

  • "Only real complaint was the shower cubicle upstairs which was far too small and very high to get into and no hand rail to hold onto when you get out."

    My husband is 6 feet 4 inches and could not stand up and wash his hair! You might say well use the one downstairs but we have both had major operations and have difficulty getting into a bath so that is why we chose the king sized bedroom for use of walk in shower. This should have been mentioned

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry you and your husband had difficulty in both bathrooms. The upstairs shower is new and due to the age of the cottage we had to slightly elevate the cubicle. We recognize that the downstairs shower over bath could also prove difficult for visitors with restricted mobility. We have ensured that this has been reflected in the Bryn Conwy description. Despite this we hope you enjoyed everything else the cottage and surrounding area has to offer Property Owner
