  • "We had a lovely stay and enjoyed how rural and secluded the property was having the lambs and sheep entertain us."

    Lovely warm home with plenty of space! Even opening 4 gates to get in and out made the stay! At a glance it was generally clean but when looked at closer e.g dropping cutlery under the table or moving furniture to stop kids falling out of beds we noticed it was fairly dirty. Bathrooms weren’t the best either but we chose to see passed this and enjoy all of the positives. We couldn’t get the freezer to work and wished the showers were slightly more powerful. This wouldn’t stop us from coming here again. Beds were super comfortable! Great smart tv, lovely toasty fire, Plenty of parking space, Lots of crockery and cutlery. WiFi was perfect. Plenty of seating in the living room.

  • "Helen was a fantastic host and allowed us to stay in her beautiful cottage at the very last minute due to a late cancellation of our original booking."

    We were welcomed into the cottage by a roaring fire and very cozy surroundings. The cottage and land are brilliant. Kids explored the fields despite the weather and it was a great escape from every day life. I would definitely recommend and would love to book again in future.

    Really peaceful and amazing views. Internally, the house was very comfortable, especially the beds. There is plenty of room and equipment, the kitchen has everything that you need and is done to a high standard. Very cosy in the evenings. 3 generations of the the same family had a great time during our stay here.

  • "What a great property at the end of a narrow country lane and then through three gates across the fields on a well laid track you arrive at this quiet cottage on a working farm."

    Kitchen is well equipped, the living room was comfortable for 8 people and has a large tv and a wood burning stove. Very cosy. To the right of kitchen up a small flight of stairs is a very comfortable double bedroom with an en-suit shower. Through the kitchen to the left on the ground floor is a large double and upstairs is a big double, a good sized twin and a cosy single. All with ample storage and there is a bathroom with a bath and an electric shower. It was ideal for a break sightseeing in North Wales. We visited Caernarfon, Anglesey, Snowdonia, bets-y-cowed, Llandudno and Conwy. Would certainly consider booking again.

    Thank you very much for those kind words You would be very welcome to come again You left the cottage in a lovely condition which makes our work much easier . Helen Property Owner

    Plenty of space for us all to relax and chill out. Gorgeous place. The cottage description does not describe how very isolated the cottage is- this was an amazing surprise, total peace and quiet, as well as outstanding views over the surrounding countryside- only thing we could have asked for is that there is a great map in the green info folder that made the journey there very clear- if this could be sent out before our stay we wouldnt have struggled to find the place!

  • "The cottage was lovely and had everything anyone might need for a perfect stay."

    It was overall clean but the shower areas needed cleaning by ourselves before we would use them. The location of the cottage however, was extremely remote. The very, very narrow road to and from the village was quite stressful to travel on as only one car would fit and we had to reverse a fair way a few times to find a spot (someone’s driveway) where we could turn into to allow the other car to pass. After this very long, extremely narrow road, we then had to travel over fields opening and closing 4 gates each time, before we reached the actual cottage! The other problem we encountered was the recycling and rubbish disposal. There were clearly marked bins and plenty of bags in the cottage and that was fine. However, in the information left for us, at the end of the week we were told to put the glass in the top box of the boxes outside the cottage and the food waste in a separate bin etc….these boxes were not outside the cottage - rather they were right at the end of the ‘lane’ which meant driving down, opening and closing 4 gates, struggling with all of this separate rubbish - 5 separate lots!) and when you have to be out for 10 am it’s is a bit fraught getting everything done. We really liked the cottage, the area is lovely, lots to see and do but the bad points, namely the remoteness of the cottage and the chaos with the recycling put a bit of a dampener on things!

    Thank you for your feedback. Sorry you found disposing of the rubbish to be a problem. I wouldn't expect you to take it to the main gate. Most people leave it outside the back door but the bins hadnt been taken up there on this occasion. Sorry about the inconvenience. We hope you had a lovely stay otherwise . Property Owner

  • "The beds are extremely comfortable and the cottage well equipped."

    We have found a few issues we would like to make you aware of, as I figure if you are not alerted then they cannot be rectified. The water in bathroom runs yellow ( 2yr old refused to get in the bath) and the bath had a grime ring. Fridge isn’t really big enough for the size of party staying. We found the size of the dining room chairs made it very restricting when eating. Maybe a rear bench would be better . My daughter has severe asthma and her first night she suffered badly as we were unaware that the pillows were feather, perhaps a note on the website would have allowed us to bring her own pillows from home. Lastly and most important was the cleanliness, on the surface it looked extremely clean and tidy, however under and down sides of sofas was a huge amount of food debris and dust (having a small child who drop her toys we discovered this problem). And the crockery and cutlery wasn’t clean enough and we had to wash everything we want to use, including cleaning out the cutlery draw. Once we had done this we relaxed and had a good week. This is the second time I’ve booked a Skye’s cottage and the last one has severe damp and mould on net curtains, it was advertised that the site had a pool and hotel restaurant and when we arrived everything was complete shut down . I do wonder whether you company does random spot checks on the properties you have on your site? I’m wondering whether to bother a third time which is very sad because the areas you have cottages are beautiful. Regards Jackie Bradley (disappointed)

The hosts were very helpful (including coming out to have a look at a leak in the bathroom) and it was good to meet and chat with you. The cottage was very well equipped and had everything we needed.

    We had a wonderful week here. One warning I would give is that this farm is more remote than you might expect, which is lovely for the peace and quiet, but does make travelling to and from it everyday slightly more challenging. The roads are windy, steep, and not always in the best condition. A small-engine car might struggle with the trip. However, this should not put you off, as the views from the house are stunning, and the roads, whilst difficult, are manageable. Both the house and the town of Conwy are worth the extra bit of effort.

The property

Boasting an elevated position at the north end of the majestic Conwy Valley, is the elegant farmhouse Hafodty.

Approached via an endearing country road, taking you away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, is where you will find this beautifully renovated, stone-built property. This heart-warming retreat has been designed to bring family and friends together, offering everything you could possibly need for a week-long break, as well as far-reaching views of the coast and countryside.

Be welcomed into the farmhouse-style kitchen, which boasts a lovely blend of style and tradition, with contemporary units contrasting with the charming exposed beams.

The designated chef of the group will be delighted to prepare home-cooked meals within this space, before hosting a sociable evening within the well-presented dining room. Spend your wind down time within the sitting room, where you can select your favourite DVD to watch whilst the warmth of the woodburning stove fills the room.

You will be spoilt for choice by the sleeping accommodation that awaits you, with five bedrooms situated across two floors to choose from.

On the ground floor, you will find a double bedroom and following the staircase from the kitchen will bring you to a further double, complete with rural views and its own en-suite shower room.

Up the second staircase, you will find a super king-size bedroom, a twin bedroom and a single bedroom, ensuring a flexible sleeping arrangement to suit the needs of your group. If you don’t feel like cooking one evening, a short drive will bring you to the local pub and restaurant, offering a superb dining menu and welcoming atmosphere.

Alternatively, venture into the centre of Conwy where you will find a selection of eateries as well as shops for picking up any essentials.

Whilst in Conwy, find the remains of an ancient castle, the smallest house in Britain and the picturesque quay, which is the perfect place to rest and watch the world go by.

Slightly further afield is the larger town of Llandudno, where you can soak up the sun at West Shore Beach or enjoy the views of the Great Orme and Little Orme from the North Shore Beach. The private drive has glorious views over the Conwy Valley.

The farmhouse was built around 1885 by the Penrhyn estate.

Panoramic views of the valley ,out to sea as far as Morecambe Bay, Conwy castle and Bodnant Gardens can be seen . The 200 acre hill sheep farm is ideal for walking.

It borders on the Carneddau Mountains where you can walk to your hearts content and see the wild horses.The vantage point looks down on the Great Orme,Puffin Island and Anglesey and then you could walk down the fairy glen to the Fairy Glen Hotel where you could have a drink or Sunday lunch but don’t forget to keep some energy for the walk back home.To the far end of the property there is a 12th Century old church which is well worth a visit.There is also a standing stone called Maen Hir the long stone in Hafodty Fields which has been there since the Bronze Age and is protected as an ancient monument.

About the location


Llandudno 5 miles; Betws-y-Coed 16 miles.

Conwy, a World Heritage Site, is without doubt world famous for its historical and architectural heritage, yet at the heart of the town lies a hub of bustling activity. Alongside its ancient festivals and fairs, musical recitals, galleries and historical attractions, there is an array of specialist shops, restaurants and hotels. Built for King Edward I between 1283 and 1287, Master James of St George's design, Conwy Castle remains one of the most outstanding achievements of medieval military architecture. The distinctive, elongated shape, with its two barbicans, eight massive towers and a great bow-shaped hall was perhaps determined by the narrow rocky outcrop on which the castle stands. The town is proud of its historic traditions and celebrates its past by retaining many of these in its annual festivals, events and fairs, including the Honey fair, Seed fair and Gwledd Conwy Feast in October, along with other musical events throughout the year. Conwy is the perfect base for exploring the dramatic Snowdonia National Park, walking unspoilt sandy beaches, or taking in the wonderful scenery on your doorstep. Also within reach are the Llechwedd Slate Caverns, which has the longest zip wire in Europe, and Surf Snowdonia is just six miles away.
