    Reviewed by Anne5.0May 2024

  • "Excellent property with incredible panoramic views."

    With the beach literally at the doorstep it was a pleasure to step out and walk with the dogs every morning. Dartans was spacious, comfortable and felt relaxing. There was certainly plenty to do - both within walking distance and a short drive away. I would certainly love to visit again.

    ! If we could suggest anything-------a doorbell would be good as it's almost impossiple to hear anyone at the door,unless you are in the hall. Also some double power sockets,with usb outlets,to cater for the latest technology.

  • "Our second visit will hopefully not be our last."

    The location is perfect, and the seaside view absolutely stunning, plus the direct access to the beach is a big plus point. Two years ago we had to mention some problems. The wonky front door is now replaced, and the owner responded very quickly when we had to report the ageing patio table was home to a colony of insects - no doubt as a result of the hot summer. Overall, it could still use some investment (e.g. more electric sockets, updated decor) but maybe they are looking to sell at some time. If so, we very much hope it will still be available as a hugely attractive holiday home in the future.

    As soon as we walked in we all said WOW. Facilities were spot on, I can't think of anything that we were missing. Loved watching the seals all day. Access to the beach was great, no-one had an issue getting down the steps and we had people in their late 70's in the group. We loved it so much we have already booked again for next year.

    Our minds were blown when we walked into the kitchen. The views are incredible. Most people staying spent many hours seal watching and general sea activities. Would highly recommend this home due to lots of space, and location. Very close to Angel Bay where seals come on to the beach. Was hoping to book in the winter to, but sadly fully booked already.

    It is a fabulous house both inside and out. I have just had major surgery and this was meant to be a relaxing holiday, as I could not go out very much. Unfortunately it was like living on a building site from 7am till 7pm some days. I realise of course that this has nothing to do with the owners, but would have gone later in the year had I known about this. Still love Dartans though

There is a delightful large patio area with table and chairs. From here there are steps down to the beach but there is a high jump at the bottom so not suitable for all. There were 8 of us in total aged from 10 to 77 and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, nothing negative to report.

    Certain things do need a bit of attention, mainly fridge freezer needed defrosting. The only real complaint is that there were no recycling facilities which given that big families are renting should be a given in this day and age.

  • "The property is amazing and the wow factor walking through to the huge kitchen/ breakfast room with its very wide view of the bay is unbelievable."

    I managed the trip down to the beach all be it slowly, as a 79 year old waiting for a hip replacement. However the jump down to the beach itself at the bottom was beyond me! Only a short walk though to the public steps down so not a huge problem. I have only one negative comment. I really didn’t like the smell of the bedding. It must be the washing agent or softener I guess. The towels were absolutely fine. I just pinched the spare pillow I always carry for my husband.

  • "We had the best time at the proprty and have already booked to return next year."

    The view is what makes this place so special. Waking up each morning and having coffee over looking the beach made it feel like we were in some 5* hotel. The kids enjoyed being able to paddleboard every morning and the dog enjoyed swimming too, although the jelly fish were and issue as a few of us got stung but the water is so clear you can usually see them in time to avoid getting in their way. Also, be mindful of the steps down to the beach as they are quite steep and there's a bit of a tricky bit to get onto the beach so anyone with mobility issues may not manage. My mum struggled with having a dodgy knee and hip but we managed to get her down one or twice. The house is close to llandudno, just a 10 minute drive. We also went to zip world quarry to the world highest zipline. Definitely worth doing.

    The house is amazing spacious and suitable for mixed ages. The views are astounding and mesmerising. We commented on the view from the kitchen every day. We loved the location with easy access to Llandudno, Colwyn Bay and Conwy. We enjoyed walks along the beach and a refreshing swim in the sea after a day out. Our only negative was the mattress in the master bedroom was a bit hard.

    Overall the house was clean and tidy, however there were a few snags which were written in the housekeeping book, most we could deal with, although the most pressing was a socket in the on suite bedroom that was coming away from the wall. Julie herself is lovely and extremely helpful, however the new build next door will detract from the property, I think for future bookings.

    View from the kitchen is spectacular - we enjoyed watching the seals! A couple of very minor issues but they didn't detract from a great week away - downstairs shower room light didn't work so the shower was unusable, en-suite shower switched off once but quickly fixed with a switch (water pressure was fine and not low like other reviews have mentioned), lower garden past the gate is not enclosed as you can access the building site next door so not suitable for dogs but the patio is.

    The property was immaculate and cleanliness obviously taken very seriously. The kitchen was well equipped, the lounge very comfortable as were the bedrooms. The view was spectacular and we did not find the steps to the beach too difficult even for two of the party in their 70's. We were aware of the building work next door but this was not obtrusive in any way. There were just two people on site, who were very quiet. Yes, as stated in the brochure, the ensuite shower was not the most powerful, but given all the other positives, it was of no consequence. I am pleased to say no-one in the in the party could find any negatives.

The property was much more spacious than we had thought and having the beach on your door step was just perfect for the grandchildren. We took our parents with us and my mum has lots of problem with her mobility which was another reason we picked this. The area is flat for walking with little cafes and shops around.

    Just spent a very relaxing week in Dartans, fantastic location, spacious, clean and a holiday home where every bed was comfy. We were lucky with the weeks weather so sat seal watching on the patio most days. Steps from the house down onto the beach were very handy for our 2 young grandsons and our dog who all love the beach. Parking on front drive for 3 cars easily. Our only let down was there was no "welcome pack" on arrival for Dartans guests i.e. tea, coffee, milk etc, this is the 1st holiday home that has not supplied these and we have stayed in many holiday cottages over the years.

  • "We had a fantastic holiday here at Dartans."

    Three generations of family, celebrating an 80th birthday, spent a week here. Having direct access to the beach was great and a very happy dog spent a lot of time fetching a ball from the sea. The house is very spacious and comfortable. The views from the kitchen are great. We could easily have stayed at the house everyday rather than visiting the local area. The house has a real home from home feel. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. We had great weather everyday and it was lovely waking early and sitting outside watching the sunrise on a blue sky morning listening to the tide coming in. An improvement would be to have a bedroom downstairs, for an older person to avoid climbing the stairs to bed. This is easily possible by converting the desk area at the end of the lounge, as there is already a door off the hallway. The separate shower, toilet and sink downstairs could be then made into one room and used by the occupants of the room as a bathroom. This is not a criticism of the property as it is great but this would make it perfect. One other small comment would be that there is no opening window in the kitchen. It was very warm the week we were there so we just kept the back door open when we were in there. We will be back.

    Brilliant in every way. Plenty kitchen utensils. Cushions for benches outside, umbrellas, deck chairs for beach. Bedrooms comfy, on suit really large, Even though ten adults went we never cued for bathroom, as downstairs also had a shower separate toilet. We have booked for next year, As soon as we arrived back. Two living rooms were a God send, men acquired one to watch ladies football. Each morning we awoke to the seals in the sea, grandson loved sitting watching the seals through binoculars which the owners supplied, Fantastic sea views, right on the beach, steps leading down to beach not suitable for people who have mobility issues. Property was secure for dogs inside the grounds of the cottage. The only thing I would recommend is to remove mat in porch by front door very slippery. If possible put downstairs bedroom off living room and make the downstairs shower room bigger, to accommodate disabled people. As they too would love this property too. Remove front lawn to accommodate four vehicles, we did manage three vehicles but if four couples decided to occupy the property and each have large vehicle it would be difficult to park four cars. We all had fantastic stay even though it rained each day. I would recommend this property best one we have stayed in.

    We enjoyed being able to see the sea and going to sleep with the lapping of the waves. We had chosen this house to accommodate a large family get together and it didn't disappoint!

  • "The house is beautiful."

    We found the layout excellent. Best part is looking out to sea and watching the sun rise. We enjoyed it so much we extended our stay. 10/10.

The property

This delightful detached property is situated in the coastal town of Penrhyn Bay, an equal distance between Llandudno and Colwyn Bay.

Boasting stunning sea views and private access down to the beach, this spacious holiday home is a great base for families or a group of friends with plenty to keep everyone entertained during their time here.

Inside Dartans is a large sitting room with a cosy woodburner, and a dining room both with full-width glazed patio doors, allowing you to enjoy the open space with a view of the sea whatever the weather.

In addition to the sitting room there is a snug, which children can make their own after a day out on the beach or watch their favourite programmes on the Smart TV, or a place where adults can retreat and relax whilst enjoying a refreshing drink.

The well-equipped kitchen with double ovens allows for the chef in your party to cook up a gastro meal.

The kitchen also has a breakfast table and window seating providing you with an area for you to gather to chat about the day ahead, or simply you may wish to just take in the breathtaking views and try and spot the seals.

There are five comfortable bedrooms all on the first floor, a king-size double with en-suite bathroom, two double rooms, and two twin rooms, along with a family bathroom.

Outside there is a large patio where you can sunbathe, enjoy privacy and tranquillity reading a good book, or just relax and watch the world go by on the garden furniture.

The North Wales town of Penrhyn Bay has a sandy beach, shops, a pub and a church, and you will be spoilt for choice with the many places to visit nearby, including Llandudno with its Great Orme and Little Orme, the resorts of Colwyn Bay and Conwy, and also within reach is the beautiful Snowdonia National Park.

A charming holiday home with plenty of space for everyone in your party.

The town of Penrhyn Bay is situated on the North Wales coast and offers a pebble beach, shops, a pub and two churches. Just three miles away is the town of Llandudno, which lies between two headlands, the Great Orme and the Little Orme. The town offers two superb beaches, one with a wide promenade backed by an imposing crescent of Victorian hotels, and the other a quieter sandy beach that’s backed by sand dunes and has superb views towards Anglesey. Angel Bay is also a great attraction, where seals return each year. Take a ride on the Great Orme Tramway, peruse the selection of shops, pubs, restaurants and cafés or enjoy a performance at Venue Cymru. The nearby Llandudno Junction is great for families as it boasts its own cinema and family restaurants. Close by is the historic town of Conwy where you can marvel at its impressive castle before immersing yourself in the past at Plas Mawr or roaming the town walls. Snowdonia National Park is a short scenic drive away and houses a myriad of exciting outdoor activities as well as walking and hiking trails which reward visitors with breath-taking views.
