  • "My friends and I spent a lovely 3 days in this beautiful holiday home."

    The views were amazing and the Alpacas kept us amused all weekend. The owners went over and above to make our stay a success. They even put up birthday banners and left cards for the two ladies celebrating their birthdays. A welcoming basket with essentials including Prosecco was much appreciated. We would definitely look to return in the future.

  • "We can only echo the fabulous feedback from previous reviewers, this holiday cottage is one of the best that we have stayed in and a real home from home."

    Set in a beautiful rural location high up on a hillside with the lovely little village of Eglwysbach with its friendly pub the Bee Inn, and Bodnant gardens very close by. Betws-y-coed, Conwy, and Llandudno are all within easy reach. Zip world velocity is a 40 minute drive away and well worth a visit for kids big and small. Many thanks to Delyth and David, this is one place we will definitely return to in the future.

    A super house with wonderful views and easily accessible for my 92 year old mother. A well equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge and sun room, and very comfortable beds, in fact one of the best holiday homes we have stayed in. I'd also like to thank Delyth and David for the welcome gift of goodies which was most appreciated by all. We would definitely book again when next in Wales.

    The four bedrooms were very comfortable and bathrooms fabulous with very powerful showers. Living are and sun room also very comfortable and views were amazing. The property is next door to the owners farm and Del allowed us to feed her Alpacas who were just beautiful and so gentle. The hot tub looks over the valley and sitting in the garden is so quiet it’s like a little piece of paradise in Wales. It does sit at the top of a very steep hill but it’s totally worth it as the view and peace and quiet are outstanding. We can’t recommend it enough.

The roads to the house are narrow with high hedges on either side and the final mile is up an steep hill (33% gradient) but oh so worth it. The alpacas at the front of the house were a bonus. As first time visitors to the area we loved the surrounding countryside and our trips to Llandudno, Colwyn Bay, Conwy and Caernafon. The Bodnant Gardens, only a couple of miles from the house, are well worth a visit.

    The property is excellent in cleanliness, comfort, friendliness of the owners, views etc. The hot tub was wonderful, especially after a day on Snowdon & there was a hamper with tea, coffee, bread, butter, eggs & milk waiting for us (somewhat superfluous as not knowing it would be there we'd taken provisions). A lovely touch was the Prosecco & balloon for my special birthday. The games room is well kitted with playstation, etc but, & especially if you're taking youngsters needing a decent wifi connection, the property has NOT got fibre broadband. This is NO fault of the owners but fibre has not reached Bryn Derw. Wifi is slow & unreliable & can only support 1 user at a time. That said we had a great holiday but be aware that the last mile is up a narrow, steep, twisty road.

We were a mixed age range from 35 to 89, for the elderly in our party there was no need for them to negotiate the stairs as there were bedrooms and very well appointed bathroom all on the ground floor. The welcome hamper was an added bonus, and there was clearly a lot of thought put into it by the owners. There was no issue with the key collection, the owners were very accommodating, also apart from the bed linen change half way through our two week stay we did not see the owners at all.

    The house was very dog friendly with floors that were easy to clean and a child gate sectioning the dining areas off, however, the outside area was astro turf and concrete and not fenced securely, dogs of all sizes could get through the gaps. Alpacas in the adjoining field were lovely to watch but wound the dogs up as they had to be kept on leads the whole time. We took the dogs up the very steep lane to exercise them with a view to going onto the public footpaths marked on the Ordnance Survey map. The paths nearest the house were fenced off. I suggest that dog owners are apprised of these issues before booking. We certainly weren't. We always had to drive to an appropriate exercise zone. We spoke with the owner who was aware of the situation. The house was lovely, comfortable and spacious and the hot tub very welcome after lots of exercise. The views very impressive. The welcome basket was very thoughtful. We had a mixed age range with us to celebrate my landmark birthday and the house was very suitable for all of them. The games room a real treat for wanna be teenagers.

  • "Delth the owner went out of her way to attend to our needs, in supplying a sun umbrella and sun loungers this was much appreciated."

    Maybe the supply of extra towels for the hot tub cold be considered. Or make it clear that towels are not supplied. Overall the cottage was spot on - well done.

  • "Had an absolutely amazing time at Bryn Dewr for a hen do!"

    The cottage is furnished and decorated beautifully with breathtaking views. The hot tub was perfect to relax in looking out over the hills. Bonus for meeting one of the owners who provided us with some food to feed the alpacas in the field next to the house! Delyth was great to speak to in arranging key collection etc. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a nice relaxing get away to visit Bryn Derw - we just wish our trip was longer!

    We enjoyed seeing the alpacas in the field next to the house. The owner seemed really nice and when we asked for extra towels to use for the hot tub these were provided very quickly. We would definitely stay again!

  • "We have stayed in a lot of holiday cottages, and to be honest most of them are very good, but Bryn Derw exceeded all our expectations."

    The location is gorgeous, the facilities great, the house is immaculate, and more than big enough for 8 adults, and the hot tub is HOT! Even the weather was great, growing up in North Wales, I know how wild it can be, but Christmas here was lovely and fresh, we enjoyed daily walks with Sam our retriever, who loves the nearby lakes. We can't thank Delyth and David enough, the welcome hamper was just one way Bryn Derw beat all the other cottages we have stayed in. We wholeheartedly recommend Bryn Derw to anyone who has this on their "saved" list.... The Clarkes December 2017

The property

A spacious, detached house, with extensive country views and a luxurious hot tub, surrounded by grazing fields and an alpaca enclosure, just one mile from Eglwysbach, in the stunning Conwy valley in North Wales.

Offering attractive rooms, stylish contemporary furnishings and a high-quality fitted kitchen with granite worktops and central island, Bryn Derw makes a stunning option for a holiday cottage.

Entering into a large central hallway your eye is drawn past the dining area, out to the far-reaching rural scenery beyond.

The sitting room is stylish and welcoming with the attraction of a woodburning stove to add atmosphere, and double doors open into a gorgeous conservatory with panoramic views and access out onto the patio and garden.

Along the hall, as well as two ground floor bedrooms, you will find a study area, ideal for children to use as a games or activity room or for budding young artists to draw and colour in.

Further along is a media room with games consoles and large flat screen TV for movie buffs.

Upstairs are two further bedrooms, both benefiting from en-suite shower rooms and the rear bedroom soaking up undisturbed views.

The gardens are well kept, with a patio and elevated decking area to maximise the views, whilst the hot tub will ensure a relaxing time for all, and is certain to be a hit for the kids.

Close by you will find the wonderful Bodnant Gardens, ideal for a day exploring the beauty of the Conwy Valley, the adrenalin of Surf Snowdonia water park, the High Ropes adventure course, and of course all the delights of Snowdonia and the North Wales coastline and surrounding footpaths.

A superb, luxurious Conwy cottage for family and friends to enjoy making superb holiday memories.

Note: This property has a refundable Good Housekeeping bond of £140.

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.
