  • "The Long House was very cold and damp during our stay, the electric storage heaters aren't up to the job of heating this cottage, we were unable to complete our stay here."

    There was also no hot water and no mention in the house details of how to turn this on and required a call to the owner to find out. The website details make no mention of the challenging access to the property, which it should, as you will easily bottom out an average family car on the potholed and very basic track to the property. This property is only fit to be let in the height of summer when heating won't be an issue.

    Thank you for your useful review. I’ll take your points in turn. My neighbours and I share the lane and have agreed plans and have a contractor to restore the lane where it meets the public road. A very wet winter and spring have delayed work but I can assure you it remains our priority when conditions permit. Over the winter the whole electrical system. has been checked and upgraded so I am unhappy to hear you were cold. The storage heaters are turned on at the wall and adjusted by the top dial. And when on the house gets toastie. The hot water cylinder is heated for 2 periods of 7 hours per 24 hours. (The showers are heated via their control panels). Unfortunately for reasons I dont understand the cylinder had been turned off at the switch. This will now be checked between each set of guests. I value your comments and thank you for them.

About the location


Betws-y-Coed 4 miles.

The small, peaceful village of Penmachno is situated in the beautiful Machno Valley, just 4 miles from the popular town of Betws-y-Coed. Surrounded by woodland, magnificent mountains and flowing rivers, the whole area is a haven for walkers, birdwatchers, mountain bikers and climbers, whilst Betws-y-Coed itself offers a good range of shops, pubs and cafes. Here the River Conwy meets its three tributaries, creating a host of cascading waterfalls, river pools and ancient bridges throughout the surrounding countryside, the most famous of which is the magnificent waterfall at Swallow Falls, situated where the River Llugwy meets with a spectacular chasm, creating a sight not to be missed! The beautiful Conwy Falls are also well worth a visit and are situated in the Machno Valley. With all of Snowdonia to explore and North Wales' Heritage Coastlines also within easy reach, this beautiful location has plenty to offer at any time of year.
